Review Schar Viennese Biscuits ( Gluten Free) 

  
  

  I was walking through Morrisons the other day. They have had a rebrand of their free from range, and increased the number of lines in the ranges as well. Hooray I hear you all cry. Fro the record I’m really impressed with the gluten free curly fries at £1 but anyway I’ve digressed somehow. 

Whilst perusing the shelves I noticed these Viennese biscuits from Schar. I can vaguely remember in my BCD ( Before Coeliac Disease ) days that M&S did a Viennese Whirl that was amazing, so I was keen to try these to see if they sparked any memories. 

  
So the packet states a melt in the mouth biscuit- these don’t disappoint. They have a lovely vanilla taste, that does ( without sounding corny) melt in the mouth, tasting rather like a buttery shortbread  Incidently they fair ok in a dunk test as well.  That little gem of info is gorgeous those of you, who like me, are partial to the odd dunk in your brew. 

I did pimp them a little and created a proper Viennese sandwhich with strawberry jam and buttercream,  this really did the justice. My confession is that they were maybe eaten before any photos were taken- oops. I promise I’ll update the post later. 

My only down side is the May contain Lupin warning as little one, or indeed a few of those with peanut allergies,  can’t have them. In all other ways they are a lovely, tasty biscuit with a good crunch. Perfect for  those days when rice cakes just won’t cut the mustard. 

Have you tried these? Or any of the other new ranges from Schar? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 

  

Happy International Women’s Day. 

  
So today marks International  Women’s Day with the theme Be Bold For Change. I like this, I like it a lot. The message talks sense, sometimes we need that little bit of courage to make a change, no matter how big or small it is. 

  It got me thinking what have I done to make those changes. And I thought you- my readers might like to get to know “Me” a little bit more. Well I gave up a good job in retail ( store manager of a large shoe shop- and I love shoes) to do a 5 year degree in osteopathy, that was hard but it enabled me to achieve my dream of helping people and starting my own business. 

In 2013 mini me came into the world, and she is wonderful, and feisty and independent which are qualities that I’d hate for her to lose, but if I’m honest can be a pain in the bum as a 3 year old.  However for me personally, as soon as she was born we realised the responsibility we had to give her a good childhood and help her become the person she will become in adult hood- never let any one say it’s easy, it’s the hardest, most rewarding thing I’m doing at the moment. 

  So it brings me on to this year, my blog will be 2. I was told the other day by some followers how I’ve helped and inspired them- little me.  In my head I’m no one and nothing special, I had a normal upbringing, and I’d like to say I’m a fairly well adjusted individual so  I’m humbled that what I’m writing on my tiny space on the Internet can be helping someone who is on or starting a similar journey to us so thank you to you all. 

  I think that for me this year my bold thing is to start thinking more of myself.  I’ll be kicking the crappy guilt fairy out of my head ( warning to parents she sticks her ore in a fair bit if you let her) and thinking more along the “I can and I will” approach. 

Back to International Women’s Day, I think we all need to have dreams, and ideas and realise we all have the potential to make them happen. Come on ladies we’ve got this.
