Trufree Wheat Free and Gluten Free Bourbon Biscuits

The Verdict

The packet contains 10 biscuits which are wrapped in pairs.  The biscuits are about the same size as an average custard cream and work out at approx 14p per biscuit.

The biscuits have a very dry texture, and quite a bitter taste.  The chocolate cream in the middle of the biscuit is also bitter.  These gluten free bourbon biscuits weren’t a hit with us.

We have tried other gluten free biscuits that we have absolutely loved such as Byron Bay’s White Choc Chunk and Macadamia Nut cookies which are an excellent example of gluten free and fabulous.

Available from : Asda, Booths, Co-op, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Somerfield, Tesco, Waitrose, Goodness Direct, Holland & Barrett.

Although we weren’t overkeen on their bourbon biscuits, it won’t deter us from trying the other variety of biscuits that Trufree has in their product range (Digestive Biscuits, Milk Chocolate Nobbles, Custard Creams, Chocolate Fingers, Rich Tea Biscuits) or their crackers and pretzels.  Watch This Space!

Please note that this Product Review is based purely on our family’s personal opinions and observations on how these Trufree Wheat Free and Gluten Free Bourbon Biscuits suited our requirements.
