London Haul: Food.






This is probably one of the most random London hauls you'll see. Most bloggers would be so excited to go beauty or clothes shopping, but not me - I wanted food! As most of you know I am gluten intolerant so finding different things to eat is really exciting for me. Whole Foods has become my favourite place, unfortunately unless I move to the outskirts of London, I'm not going to be able to do my weekly shop there. So whilst we were in London I dragged the hubby to the huge Whole Foods on Kensington High Street. All of the foods are pretty self explanatory but the little tub, for those wondering, is peanut butter - freshly made in store, amazing. The marshmallows may seem a little random, but as I'm veggie it's pretty hard finding marshmallows I can eat - I am so glad I found these without gelatin. 

China Town also reminded me of how much Chinese food is GF. So I spent a good half an hour looking for goodies to take home with me. I've now decided to try and shop more at Chinese supermarkets - mainly in search of another bottle of Lychee Tea

The most exciting GF purchase I made was the Fria Cinnamon Buns. I'd been hunting for these since I first tried them almost a year ago, unfortunately they are practically impossible to get hold of in the UK, unless you're willing to pay an excessive P&P charge to keep them frozen. I did a bit of Googling and discovered I could get my hands on these at a place called Totally Swedish near Edgeware Road. It was a tiny shop and these were the last packet, but they were absolutely worth hunting down.

Do you love finding new foods to try?
