Where I live we only have a small-ish Sainsbury’s – I’d say it was a 3/4 sized one. They never have anything new in their frozen section and they barely ever add to their dry food free from section. So when my boyfriend spotted Old Del Paso gluten-free tortillas I was excited.
We stocked up on veggies, soured cream, salsa and a fajita spice mix. So although it doesn’t come as a ‘fajita kit’ you can find the accompanying fajita products gluten-free quite easily. Score.
The tortillas smelt like a horse’s stable and they tasted how I would imagine a horse’s stable would taste, too. So, in case it’s not clear, they were disgusting.
But hey, if you like the horsie taste – go for it!
After this disaster of a dinner, I wasn’t thrilled when my boyfriend again spotted something new in Asda this time – a gluten-free fajita kit. Hmm. Sceptical.
We got veggies again but we didn’t need the mix or the salsa – it’s already in your kit.
I actually really liked these wraps. They were much bigger than the Old El Paso ones – it isn’t hard to be, have you seen the size of them?? Are they for children? Put a mushroom in the middle and it’s already full.
I also like that it comes in a kit already. pretty handy. There is actually a gluten-free kit by Old El Paso, but I haven’t tried this yet, it is in my cupboard ready to taste. I’m not over-enthused to try it after our experience with the horse white corn tortillas.
I honestly love that there are more and more brands jumping on the gluten-free wagon and expanding their range. It’s great to have the choice as a coeliac. But I do wonder if they taste test them with human beings sometimes, first.
