Ok, OKAY, I know it’s only October and everyone’s angry at the supermarkets for bringing out all their festive free from ranges already. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard ‘but it’s way too early’ so many times and you know what? I don’t care. Because the more gluten free treats on the shelves, the better!
You can moan about the early onslaught of Christmas food all you like – and if that’s you, then please do bookmark this page and come back in two months’ time. However, if you’re already stocking up on treats and starting to feel a tiny bit festive, welcome to the grotto.
As usual, there are lots of new gluten free Christmas products out already. I’m not going to bore you with the usual tirade of mince pies and Christmas puddings. Long story short: look in most free from aisles and you’ll find them. Oh no, this post is all about the good stuff. The shiny, new, exciting products appearing on the shelves you haven’t tried yet.
Asda rhubarb gin and ginger shortbread
That’s right – GIN SHORTBREAD. Asda’s free rom rhubarb gin and ginger shortbread are gluten, wheat and dairy free and an absolute game-changer. So tasty!
Tesco gluten free onion rings
Gluten and dairy free onion rings – THIS IS NOT A DRILL! I was so excited to finally get my hands on these and they’re only £1 a pack too. Taste like the real deal – I hope they stay past Christmas too!
Gluten free lebkuchen
Oh my word I was SO excited when I found these gluten free lebkuchen by Schar in Asda! I used to absolutely LOVE these pre-coeliac and I am so happy that there is finally a gluten free version!

Another brand new find in Asda from Schar are these gluten free spekulatius biscuits – I’ve never heard of them before but am intrigued to know what they are like!
Tesco gluten free enrobed cookies & cream
These Free From Enrobed Cookies and Cream are basically chocolate covered gluten free Oreos, and they come in ‘normal’ or chocolate orange flavours! Okay, they’re not in festive packaging, but they’ve launched with all the Christmas products and they sound fantastic!
Gluten free ‘MistleMoo’ pie
I LOVE Pieminister pies and this gluten free Mistlemoo one I found in the chilled Morrisons aisle looks SO good. It’s filled with beef steak, bacon and port, and it just sounds absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to try it!
Co-op Ruby Reindeer cupcakes
Ahhhh I loved these cupcakes so much last year and am super pleased they’re back in Co-op’s free from aisle! They’re gluten free and just so cute – perfect for a party snack!
Tesco gluten free mini cheese snackers
If you’re more excited by savoury treats, I’ve not seen these gluten free cheese snackers before they look yummy! I feel like this is the kind of treat you’d keep on the coffee table at Christmas and just nibble on while watching trashy television! I’m excited to try them, I love cheese!
Sainsbury’s free from choc, cherry & amaretto cookies
These gluten free choc, cherry and amaretto cookies from Sainsbury’s sound divine! They look like a proper grown-up treat and I love the snazzy new-look packaging too. These would make a lovely festive treat, perfect for a party platter or giving as a gift.

Ok, so Roddy the Reindeer isn’t the newest kid on the block, but just LOOK at how cute he is! This cute reindeer cake in Asda is like Colin the Caterpillar’s festive brother. It’s gluten and dairy free and a great centrepiece for a Christmas party, or to share with children!
Rudi the Reindeer at Morrisons
And while we’re on the subject of gluten free reindeer cakes, check out how cute Rudi the Reindeer yule long sponge is in Morrisons! The store is also donating money from the £5.50 price tag to CLUC Sargent. Even more reasons to buy him for your Christmas party platter!

Another boozy gluten free treat from Asda. These gluten, wheat and dairy free amaretto, apricot and almond shortbread sound lovely and so festive. Cannot wait to give them a try – found in the Asda seasonal aisle.
Gluten free mini pastry tart cases
If you’re not a fan of making gluten free pastry then these gluten free mini pastry tart cases can definitely make life easier for you! I found them in Morrisons (they used to be in Tesco last year but I haven’t seen them yet this year!) and think they might be a game-changer for some!

I love a bake at home kit and this one from Morrisons looks fabulous. Gluten free chocolate brownie star cookies sound amazing – this will definitely be a good one to keep the kids happy this Christmas.
Tesco spiced apple tortilla rolls
So these spiced apple tortilla rolls aren’t in the free from aisle but they do happy to be gluten free! I love a tortilla roll but I can’t quite get my head around these. I’m certainly intrigued – I’ll have to give them a go and let you know what I think.

How incredible do these cookies from Co-op sound? Spiced salted caramel just sounds like the ultimate dream – I can’t wait to try them. I reckon these would be lovely dipped in a cuppa while watching a festive movie one evening!
Nairn’s gluten free savoury biscuit selection
I’ve not seen this gluten free festive biscuit selection from Nairn’s, but this was new on the shelves in Tesco. I love the Nairn’s oatcakes on a cheeseboard so it’s nice to be able to buy a full selection of flavours in one box. I’ll definitely be getting this for Boxing Day!

How lovely do these gluten, wheat and dairy free Marc de Champagne truffles look from Asda? There are some lovely dairy free truffle boxes out there this year but these do look extra special!

Tesco chocolate orange popcorn
This chocolate orange popcorn from Tesco is another goodie from the ‘normal’ Christmas aisle which is gluten free. I love the sound of this and will help fix the Chocolate Orange-shaped hole in your life if you have coeliac disease. Perfect for Christmas movie watching!
Asda salted caramel shortbread biscuits
How good do these gluten free salted caramel shortbread biscuits look!? I found these in the Asda free from aisle and they just sound divine. I had to resist buying them for now because I’m pretty sure I actually won’t be able to stop eating them once I start.
Gluten free cranberry and orange mince pies
I am a HUGE mince pie fan but these gluten free cranberry and orange mince pies from Sainsbury’s look extra special! I love the pink dusting on top and the fact they’re a large, open-style mince pie. I found these in the free from aisle and am looking forward to trying them!
Costa mince pie and M&S Christmas sandwiches
Ok, so these are two other oldies that have snuck into this post of new Christmas goodies. However, they’re such classics I had to include them! I love the Costa Coffee gluten free and vegan mince pie, and the M&S gluten free Christmas sandwich is just the best. This used to be my office lunch from October until January so now I’ll have to make some special trips into town to stock up!

Sainsbury’s dairy free chocolate Santas
How cute are these! They’re gluten and dairy free and only £1 each so would make the perfect stocking fillers. I found them in the Christmas aisle in Sainsbury’s with the ‘normal’ chocolates.

Another super cute new product! These little gingerbread snowmen in the free from aisle in Sainsbury’s would make a lovely present for a kid and are gluten and dairy free.

Gluten free and vegan tiffin selection
These gluten free and vegan tiffins from Holland and Barrett also sound lovely. I don’t like the fact you can’t see what they look like inside but the flavour combinations sound great. A lovely gift idea.
Made Without Dairy selection box
I love the look of this dairy free selection box from Marks and Spencer – and I love the new Made Without branding too. It looks super cute and there’s a great selection – I think this is nut free too.
Co-op dairy free Santa
This little chocolate Santa bar from Co-op is so cute and a great little stocking filler. I like that you are able to buy some individual products like this instead of just multi-packs of everything.
Sainsbury’s pigs in blankets flavour tortillas
I loved the look of these Sainsbury’s pigs in blanket flavoured tortillas! They’re in the Christmas aisle and I reckon they’d be amazing in a cranberry sauce-type dip!
Sainsbury’s salted tortilla chips
And for all you multi-coloured crisp fans, these gluten free salted tortilla chip Christmas trees from Sainsbury’s can also be found with the festive food and would look fabulous in a party food spread.
