I love find new free from products and recently Tesco has released a lot of new additions to their collection, which includes a whole range of festive products.
I’d seen a few of the products on Instagram, so head to my local Tesco to check it out.
You can find the range of new festive products in the Christmas aisle alongside the other festive foods, but in my local store, the section was signposted really clearly so you could find the products easily but that also made it easy to know which items were free from.
The products vary between being ‘gluten & wheat free’ and ‘gluten, wheat & dairy free’ so if you opt for free from products because you avoid dairy, your options in this new range may be limited as not all the products are dairy free.
Some of the items are in the usual green and purple free from packaging that Tesco usually use which suggests they may be staying in the range after Christmas, some are labelled in the same way as their standard free from range but in a festive purple box, showing their obviously limited edition and some are from their ‘Finest’ range, meaning they’re a more premium product.
My nearest ‘big Tesco’ isn’t the biggest, so this may not be all the products in the festive range, but these are all the ones I have seen.

There was a few blank spaces on the shelf, but if I see anymore products I’ll be sure to update this post.
My first thought is that I think this range is a great idea as it offers so many options to people with dietary requirements, things that usually we would have to either miss out on, or find a way to make our own.
Some of the prices feel reasonable, however some are a little expensive, but that is the same with any free from products, limited edition or not.
I think they’ve chosen a great range of products and covered all the most wanted festive treats, as well as a few more unique ones.
I also love the mix of standard range products and finest products, so you have the option to treat yourself as you do when shopping the normal product ranges.
Overall, I am really impressed with this range and Tesco for designing it as I haven’t seen any other festive free from ranges like this.
If you’ve seen any other supermarkets launching their own festive ranges of free from products, let me know and I’ll check them out.
