I was very pleased when I went to my local Tesco a few weeks ago and discovered that they now stock a range (albeit a limited range) of gluten free products, which is great for me as the store is only a 5 minute walk away! As well as stocking some of the known gluten free brands they also sell their own brand cookies which are advertised as wheat free and gluten free, so I thought I’d give them a go :).
There are a few varieties available but I thought I’d go for the Belgian Triple Chocolate flavour as they sounded delicious and the picture on the packet made them look very appealing.
The cookies are described as being ‘packed with milk, plain and white chocolate chunks and dipped in smooth Belgian chocolate for extra richness’ and are made with gluten free oats and tapioca starch as well as the ingredients already mentioned. They certainly sound great, but do they live up to expectations?!
Well the answer to that is a massive yes!! These cookies are amazing and I’m gutted that I’ve only just come across them – I’ve been missing out for months!
The cookies have a wonderful texture to them with the main biscuit being firm when bitten into, but without being too dry or crumbly like some other gluten free cookies I’ve tried. I think this is primarily due to the added bonus of the bottom layer of chocolate which holds the cookie together perfectly.
The chunks of chocolate running through the cookie are divine and top off a truly amazing product!
Well done Tesco!
