Highly Commended

CocoNuts Raw Chocolate Nice Cream

Hale & Hearty Traditional Christmas Pudding

‘How great to have a dairy, gluten and nut-free Christmas pudding – one filled with fruit, yet light and delicious!'

Tesco Free From Cream Filled Profiteroles

‘Excellent imitation of a wheat profiterole – looks fantastic. Chocolate sauce slightly disappointing but creamy filling not too sweet. Great treat product.'

Tesco Free From Strawberry & Vanilla Cones

'Amazing! A gluten and dairy-free Cornetto!! Very impressive. Cone slightly soggy – maybe a thicker chocolate lining? – and perfectly pleasant strawberry soya ice. What a treat for those who thought they would never eat an ice cream cone again!!'


CocoNuts Sumptuous Strawberry Nice Cream

Lovely real strawberry flavour. Lovely clean ingredients, dairy and gluten free, and coconut cream not too overpowering.'

Go Get Morello Cherry Streusel
