*these products were sent to me by Horsham Gingerbread for the purpose of review but all opinions are my own.
I typically don’t eat that many processed gluten free foods anymore as I try to eat more naturally gluten free foods and as for treats, I like to make my own but when Horsham Gingerbread got in touch and asked if I’d like to try a few products, I jumped at the chance!
They sent out their classic gluten free gingerbread and their Spicy Sussex gluten free savoury biscuits, so I’ve had a try of both and thought I’d share my thoughts with you.
Horsham Gingerbread Bakehouse sell a selection of gluten free and original gingerbread tray bakes as well as a great selection of gluten free sweet and savoury biscuits. They make their gluten free products on separate days to their gluten-containing recipes and complete strict cleaning routines and gluten tests before production begins, so as a diagnosed Coeliac, I am happy that these products are at a safe standard.
The Gluten Free Gingerbread Tray Bake
When I think of gingerbread, I just think of gingerbread men and I love them! I really like the flavour of ginger in biscuits but have never really had it as a cake or tray bake like this so I was intrigued to give it a go!
The texture of this tray bake is quite dense and a little bit sticky, as you’d generally expect with ginger flavoured cakes, they’re usually that way, so I’d say the texture is pretty good.
The flavour is very intense, rich and a little bitter but in a kind of spicy way which compliments the ginger flavour. You only need a very small amount of this as the flavour does pack such a punch but I think paired with a little vanilla ice cream, this would make for a delicious dessert.
Spicy Sussex Savoury Gluten Free Biscuits
Crackers and savoury biscuits aren’t something I have really tried a lot of so I was intrigued to give these Spicy Sussex gluten free savoury biscuits a try and I have to say, they’re delicious!
If I am really hungry and need a quick bite to eat, I will usually grab a sweet biscuit but these are a much better alternative for a quick snack. They say they’re spicy and they do have a kick but it is mild and more a hit of flavour than spice, so don’t let the word ‘spicy’ put you off trying these!
They’re quite a dense texture but easy to bite, not too hard or too soft and they’re delicious with a little butter on top! A perfect light lunch!
Overall, the quality of the Horsham Gingerbread Bakehouse is really good, the flavours are delicious and I would recommend giving them a go if you fancy trying products like these.
