Shopping Gluten Free with Boxlocal

Shopping Gluten Free with Boxlocal

May sees us at Boxlocal celebrating all things gluten free, in a nod to Coeliac Awareness month. Being free of gluten no longer means that there has to be any compromise on flavour or variety; quite the contrary, as we look to explore some of the delicious gluten free options that you could add into a Boxlocal hamper, at any time of year.

 

 

Working with West Country suppliers who we know and trust, we know just how important it is that our local treats cater to dietary needs. So, here is a hamper worthy selection of deliciousness to give you some inspiration…

 

Mr Filbert's Simply Sea Salt Mixed Nuts 100g
For all things luxury snacking look to Mr Filberts, the home of snacks beyond expectation. Based just outside of Glastonbury Mr Filberts is a B Corp that set out with the mission to deliver strikingly delicious, exceptional quality and totally natural snacks – which is testified by the many awards that their products have won! Check out the Mr Filbert’s Olive Snack Pack – marinated olives with rosemary and garlic, yum! Or perhaps you want to spice it up with Mr Filbert’s Sweet Chilli Rice Crackers – a personal favourite of the Boxlocal team, or maybe go classic with a Mr Filbert’s Simply Sea Salt Mixed Nuts – either way you can’t go wrong by including any of these items in your hamper.
CocoaLibre Milk Chocolate Honeycomb Slab 100g - Cocoa Libre - Boxlocal

Next up, we turn our attention to a sweet treat. With Cocoa Libre delivering on the GF, DF and NF – that’s gluten free, dairy free and Nut Free, yet still coming through on the taste. Cocoa Libre are a fellow North Somerset resident based in Yatton. Originally founded by a mum who was frustrated at the lack of safe chocolate options for her children with dietary requirements, so took the matter into her own hands. Now Cocoa Libre have been seen in many a publication (think Vogue, The Guardian, Women’s Health), continuing in their mission to supply delicious chocolate suited to a variety of dietary requirements, plus looking beautiful in the process. Be it the Milk and Dark Chocolate Raspberry Chocolate Slab (100g) or the Honeycomb Chocolate Slab (100g) you, or your hamper recipient, won’t be disappointed.

Alternatively check out our gin providers, both Shipshape and Bristol Fashion Gin and 6 ‘O Clock gin offer a delicious aperitif. Shipshape and Bristol Fashion gin is a small batch London gin, made with Flax Bourton honey, grapefruit and locally grown fennel, born in a kitchen just a few miles away from Boxlocal HQ in Long Ashton, North Somerset add a 50ml taster bottle to a hamper and you won’t be disappointed. Or perhaps you’d like to give an on the go gift, which is ready made – look no further than 6 ‘O Clock Gin which offers the classic London dry gin and tonic tin, or a slightly more exotic London dry gin with mango, ginger and lime to spice things up – 6 ‘O Clock gin is founded in good ol’ Bristol and its roots can be found in a fruit farm, when the misshapes were made into fruit liqueurs, onwards sloe gin was experimented with and then with a new generation in town, the gin recipe of today was refined and perfected using a carefully selected range of botanicals. Delish!
