Gluten Free | 'NO.G' Too Good To Be Gluten Free Pork Pies

Gluten Free Pork Pies!! Are they worth a bite? Read more for my review!
Hello!

Today I have a review for you! I was sent some NO.G Too Good To Be Gluten Free Pork Pies to taste and here is my verdict!

First lets talk facts;

Ingredients British Pork (42%), Pork Lard, Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Maize Flour, Pasteurised Free Range Egg, Salt, Breadcrumbs (Rice Flour, Maize Flour, Maize Starch, Salt, Dextrose), Pork Gelatine, Stabiliser: Xanthan Gum, Stabiliser: Guar Gum, Raising Agent: Sodium Bicarbonate, Dextrose, Tapioca Starch, Ground Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Ground Mace

Kcal per serving - 391 
No artificial colours, flavourings or hydrogenated fat.

Both my mum and I taste tested these pies and here is our verdict.

Pros
- The pies are ready to eat cold and for me I found they are a great size however to some they seem a little small.
- We found the pie tasted the best hot however it was still ok cold.
- The pastry was excellent for gluten free and it tasted like the real deal. It was light and it wasn't too thick and heavy.
- There is no sugar! I was surprised by this as sometimes you find sugar does sneak it's way into these types of foods.

Cons
- Personally I am not keen on the ingredients. As I am a clean eater this just felt so wrong to eat. However if ingredients do not phase you then I feel you would enjoy this pie.
- I would have preferred some more herbs or spices in the pie.

The pies retails for £2.29.

My final thoughts are I think this is a great pick up and go option. I also think if your diet is Gluten Free this is a great treat for you when you want something comforting. Honestly I do not see myself reaching for this product again however that is only because of my diet being so clean. My mum would defiantly purchase this pie again in the future.

I hope this review was helpful and maybe I have found you a new gluten free product to try for your dinner!

Is there any other gluten free products you would like me to review? Let me know!

Have a great day!
