One of the things I used to love as a kid was the small Cadbury chocolate cakes that were sold in shops at Christmas and Easter. Covered in chocolate with a spongy centre, they were finished off with a mini egg or flake on top for a yummy finish. I can remember being given them for a treat on a Sunday night when my cousins came round and I couldn’t get enough of them.
Over the past few years however, being on a gluten, wheat and milk free diet has meant that I had to give up these little luxuries and I have often found myself stopping by them in the supermarket wishing I could eat them once more. Luckily for me, Sainsbury’s has come to my rescue this year by launching mini chocolate logs as part of their free from range.
Boxed up in a pack of five, these sugar coated brownie styled cakes are my new favourite free from find. At nearly 200 calories per cake and with 18g of sugar, they are the ultimate naughty indulgence and I can’t have more than one due to the effect high sugar consumption has on me, but I can’t deny the fact that they are truly delicious.
They are a must have for any free from chocolate lover and I honestly can’t believe they are gluten, wheat and dairy free as I find them tastier even than what I can remember of the Cadbury’s version I ate as a child. After tasting them, I believe that Sainsbury’s has really upped their game with their free from range and I can’t rate them enough.
If you’re missing out on the traditional Christmas yule log this year, I think a box of these little lovelies will satisfy your seasonal cravings and I truly hope that they will be making an annual appearance at Christmas time on the shelves of the Sainsbury’s free from aisle.
