Kent and Fraser Food Cookies and Biscuits Reviewed
I got four different types of cookies from Kent & Fraser but regrettably one arrived in pieces – the terrible dangers of post being illustrated in the boxes I got, let alone the crumbs in the one packet of a pair of cookies that arrived in crumbs. Still, most of these 3 boxes were whole and so I thought I’d give them a review!
According to their website “Award winning Kent & Fraser have a passion for good food and we really love to bake! We have dedicated ourselves to creating an outstanding range of great tasting, hand-made and 100% natural, gluten-free biscuits, cookies, and shortbread that are packed full of taste and deliciously that bit better.” As someone who is actually allergic to wheat (I’m fine with gluten – I’m not fine with wheat in any form), I was eager to try these cookies which have replaced traditional wheat flour with rice, maize and other bits.
Choc Chip Crunchy Cookies – yes, these are very crunchy cookies. I think they need a dipping in tea but they are also very buttery cookies. They are really nice and rich but could do with more chocolate 😉 I think that these, of the 3 I tried, were my favourite cookie. Of course, everyone’s taste is different… These are gluten and wheat free and have no eggs. I’m not anti-egg but nice to have no wheat and still have it taste like a cookie.
Chocolate Butter Crunch Sweet Biscuits – These were very chocolaty but not as buttery as the choc chip and thinner. They are really cocoa and chocolaty and a little less sweet, in my opinion, than the choc chip. I did like them but my favourite really is the choc chip. These are wheat, gluten and egg free as well.
Stilton & Walnut Savoury Biscuits – These were not quite my cup of tea but they are delightfully herby and the crunch of the walnut is pronounced without being overpowering. While strongly flavoured with stilton and not as much of walnut but also balanced with the flavour of herbs, they weren’t quite to my taste. These biscuits are wheat, soya, gluten and egg free so a real global biscuit for a number of food sensitivities.
Of all the types I tried, the exceedingly buttery choc chip cookies were my favourites. They are all quite crunchy but most packet cookies are. They are free of a number of allergens and so will be perfect for you or your family. Just pop on over to the Kent & Fraser site, pick a type and harass your local supermarket until they carry them!

I went to the launch of the #CAMRA Good Beer Guide Belgium which is widely considered to be the definitive travel guide to Belgium as well as #belgianbeer and is in its 8th edition. Not only does it have pubs and bars but also 240 Belgian breweries. It’s been completely updated since 2014 so now is the perf cr time to purchase a copy.
This is pretty much the only guide to Belgium you’ll need whether you go for beer or not. Belgium is a great place to travel so why not visit and use the #goodbeerguide Belgium .

I have been absolutely blown away by #hungarianwine on my visit here in #budapest
This is a city you absolutely must visit at least once for a week because of you don’t stay a week you’ll miss so much!
After the heartbreaking legacy of bulk wine production under communism - I have a family story here too with my step-grandfather, Hungary has exploded with excellent wines available everywhere.
This beautiful city is a must-visit for any #foodie passionate about #winetasting or really just any #foodietraveller
