The Free From Food Awards announced the winners of their Easter category last night. The category was judged by a panel including Simon, our Chief Executive, Sarah, our Campaigns Manager, food & allergy writer/presenter Nathalie Newman and allergy blogger Lindiwe Lewis.
In a category where chocolate is such an important feature, the team would not have been complete without its four child judges.
The panel convened in London on 1 Feb to sample a range of Easter products, from Easter eggs to Simnel cake, hot cross buns and Easter egg hunt treats.
The announcement of the winners has been moved forward this year, to give people a chance to stock up before the Easter bank holiday.
While blind tasting all these delicious foods is undoubtedly a perk of the job for Sarah and Simon, the Free From Food Awards and judging panels have a serious task on their hands – judging the best free from food available. The awards are also a celebration of and raise awareness about the range of products now available. People with allergies should never feel excluded, particularly during times of celebration like Easter, and they certainly don’t have to tolerate substandard products! The Free From Food Awards helps consumers select the best and tastiest items out there.
And the winners are…
NOMO’s Cookie Dough Crunch Egg & Bunny : “the perfect egg for kids and adults with allergies or without”
Wicked Kitchen’s Fruity Blackcurrant Flavour Choc Egg : “perfect tempering” and “a lovely blackcurrant flavour”
Moo Free Original Easter Egg & Bag of Moofresas : “intricate moulding and looks so special”
Asda Free From Marble Choc Easter Egg : “a pretty marble effect enhanced by the outer texture”
