They do not handle any ingredients containing gluten in their bakery and they impose stringent requirements on their suppliers that the ingredients they purchase from them must not contain traces of gluten.

Our trips to Ikea usually involve a visit to the cafe and if there is any Daim bar cake left, my husband and the girls will have some. I have never bothered as I don’t have a “Sweet Tooth”. So when I noticed this Gluten Free version in the frozen foods section at my local Booth’s supermarket I thought that we would give it a whirl (and give them all a treat).
The tart was left to defrost for 10 minutes before we cut into it. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the tart as often when you take things out of the packaging it’s all packaging and no product but this was definitely not the case.
I don’t like almonds so I wasn’t really expecting to be too impressed, but boy was I wrong! This is one of the nicest desserts I have ever tasted, it was absolutely delicious. The base was soft and cake like, we expected it to be crunchy but it wasn’t. The topping was a lovely velvety smooth chocolate with crunchy pieces of daim bar in it. There were layers of a creamy, custardy type filling which also tasted gorgeous between the cakey layers. This tart should be sickly but it isn’t (and we should know as we had 2 slices each). One of my daughter’s doesn’t like Daim bars but she still tried it and not surprisingly didn’t like it. The rest of us couldn’t get enough of it, we all agreed that it was absolutely delicious and extremely “more-ish”.
This will most definitely be on our shopping list again. I would highly recommend this gluten free dessert.
