I was given a pack of BFree Mixed Seed Bagels and a BFree Fajita kit to review at the Allergy Expo in Dublin.
I tasted the fajitas at the Allergy expo, and they were delicious, but it was nice to try out the kit, make it for myself and see what the family would think also. The pack contained a fajita spice mix, two sachets of salsa, and a pack of six wraps. Everything in the pack is gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, nuts and soya free. The wraps look a bit different, darker in colour and thinner than regular wheat wraps, I thought they tasted very similar though, especially when eaten with the filling. They can be heated in the microwave or in the oven. The salsa was absolutely delicious, one of the nicest I’ve tasted from this type of kit. It came in two sachets so you could open one and keep one for later if you were only catering for one or two people. I like this idea although on this occasion I needed to use both packs. I cooked chicken breast, with sliced peppers and the fajita seasoning mix, and put into the wraps with lettuce, tomato, salsa and mayonnaise. The boys just had the chicken in theirs. Empty plates all round. We have tried some of the competitors’ (non free from) fajita kits before and this one compared very favourably.
The bagels we tasted were the mixed seeds ones. My boys always like bagels, something about the different shape of the bread can make them eat a lunch they might not otherwise, and they can’t find any crust to leave behind which is a bonus in my book. The bagels went down very well with all the family, there was nobody complaining of a taste difference, I thought they were very close to wheat based bagels. We tried them with peanut butter and homemade blackberry and apple jam.
BFree products are available in Dunnes Stores, Tesco, SuperValu and Centra. They come in at between €1 and €2 more expensive than the equivalent non allergy friendly brand. I really like the packaging as it states clearly on the front what allergens it is free from, for example the fajitas are Dairy Free, Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Soya Free. Sometimes packaging can be all about the gluten free and ambiguous about the rest. You know what you’re getting here. All in all the fajita kit and the bagels are definitely items which will be back in my trolley in future.
