Every year the range of festive free from food grows, as supermarkets compete to attract customers that buy from these ranges and the demand for such things increases. As this list is ever growing, it can be a little overwhelming trying to find old favourites or new things to try, here’s a peek at the offerings of the major supermarket brands for 2018.

I hope this peek into what’s available helps you to find the treat that you’re looking for the Christmas! I haven’t included it in the list, but each of these supermarkets is selling gluten free Yule Logs, a little misleading though as they’re not actually made with a swiss roll like they should be, it’s just two layers of cake, sandwiched together and covered in icing, boo!! Merry Christmas fellow free fromers.
