Exciting muesli news (mews?)...



Calling all breakfast lovers - the best gluten-free cereal has arrived on UK shores - WOOHOO!

It's made by Bakery On Main - a US-based company - and is now available in Wholefoods on High St Kensington.

They have three different g-f ones - I chose apple, raisin and walnut because I'm a sucker for cinnamon. It is AMAZING. Really crunchy texture and seriously delicious (and there's no sugar, or high-fructose corn syrup in there which is a bonus). It's kind of expensive at £3.99 a bag, but I'm glad I forked out and will do again in an instant - am just rationing it by mixing a little with the Doves Farm g-f cereal flakes - a great base that tastes a bit like Special K - from what I remember...!

I couldn't recommend it more highly. Haven't seen it in the Fresh&Wild in Soho when I've been recently, but let me know if it's in your local branch and I'll add that to the post...

Wake up and enjoy a properly good, textureful and delicious breakfast - YUM!

Hi there! I just stumbled across your blog and I'm so excited! I came to London a couple of years ago right after I was diagnosed and it was a little difficult to find places to eat out! I did find a few, but now I'm looking forward to visiting again thanks to your site!

I live in the states and I noticed that you just barely started being able to get the Bakery On Main granola that we've been enjoying over here for years! I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a food trade? If there are any items over here that you can't get over there and would like me to ship them to you? We could set up a little GF food exchange!

Let me know if you're interested! My email is Letutt04@aol.com

Hey Kelsea - thanks so much for posting - and that sounds like a great idea! Although not sure we've got anything that you would want - I think the US is a LOT more advanced than we are here in terms of g-f stuff...!

We've got some nice stuff but probably all surpassed by US companies! Let me know if there is anything though...

I'm in the U.S. and about to visit London; I found your site when looking for gluten-free restaurants.

The Bakery on Main cereal really is yummy! I buy it all the time and I think it tastes better than the "regular" cereal I can't eat any more.

Enjoy! And thanks for the blog!

thanks SO much for this blog! I come to London at least once a year for the last fortnight or so of the "Proms" and this will be the first time since I've gone GF! I will have to give my FAVOURITE place, a crepe shop down the road from the Albert Hall, a pass (sigh) but your blog recommends will help a LOT! I look forward to trying the "Mermaid" One of my other fav things being F&C's!
thanks again.
