Top five gluten-free buys for Christmas 2014
Over five weeks, the BBC Good Food team blind-tasted hundreds of supermarket products to create the ultimate best buys collection. Here we pick our top five gluten-free buys...
With a fairly thick and cake-like pastry, these mince pies work well as a dessert with cream. They taste even better once heated up.
£2 for four, from Tesco
Best... Mince pies
Booths gluten-free mince pies
These gluten-free pies had a really crisp pastry with a lovely sticky, rich filling. These pies are a good, chunky shape and will appeal to most tastes.
£2.29, from Booths
Best... Christmas cake
M&S Made Without Gluten Christmas cake
This cake was the most attractive gluten-free cake we tried. It has a sticky middle with an added hit of booze plus the elegant decoration would look beautiful on any table.
£12, from M&S
Ocado No.G mini cheese & onion pastryless quiche
We like the whole range of No.G gluten-free canapés – these look really pretty, wrapped up in paper.
£3.99, from Ocado
Best... Christmas pudding
Sainsbury's gluten-free Christmas pudding
This gluten-free offering is a sweet, mild pudding, with a good coarse texture and fruity flavours. This has more citrus notes than other puds we tried.
£3.99, from Sainsbury's
