Special Diet Required

I don't know about you, but I definitely can get stuck in a rut when it comes to shopping for gluten free food. I tend to only pick up the brands I'm familiar with and become reluctant to experiment with new ones that come on the market. A representative from Dietary Specials got in contact with me and asked if I would like to sample some of their range. Seeing as I've always been wary of cereal and bread products that claim to be delicious and gluten free, I figured it would be a good opportunity for me to try something new. Upon tasting I have to say that their cornflakes actually taste like corn flakes  - crunchy and full of flavour and their brown ciabatta rolls are soft, fresh and not at all gritty or stale in taste! What a discovery!

I hit the internet to gain more information about Dietary Specials. My initial search took me to their UK site, but they do have an Irish website at The site is pretty easy to navigate. There is an absolutely great section on coeliac disease with advice and help. Really, really informative. There's a blog and forum on there too. They also provide a list of products that they have available here in Ireland and each is listed with a convenient ingredients guide, so you know what you're eating. They have a pretty exceptional range of breads, pastas, cereal and a frozen gluten free range too. I am looking forward to picking up more of their products in my next shop.


I think my favourite thing is that you can get a free goody box with some of their samples posted to you if you register with them online here

I recommend giving the Dietary Specials products a try.  Their website lists Dunnes, SuperValu, Superquinn  and Tesco as stockists. I have to say I am happy to enjoy a decent bowl of cornflakes in the morning again.
