Worry No More, Coeliacs

These days the problem of gluten intolerance is becoming more and more prevalent, it seems. Years ago nobody had even heard of it, but lots of people were getting sick or feeling just lousy all the time and no-one knew what the heck it was all about. Then research into food allergies revealed just how widespread this particular problem was. Trouble was if you wanted to find gluten-free foods you had to go to freaky little out-of-the-way health food shops and oddball grocery stores (I kinda prefer those, frankly - they make shopping for groceries into an adventure). My friend Jeremy, whose celiac (or coeliac if you're British - we like that Latin spelling) disease was diagnosed a few years back, used to order his gluten-free stuff in bulk from Amazon. Then you started to see these kinds of things on your regular supermarket shelves - just a few at first, then more and more, until now you go into Tesco and there are two whole sections of wheat-free and gluten-free foods, and as you can see by the pics below, it isn't all hippie food - there's lots of chocolatey thingies too. Take a gander. Click on the pics to see them full size.

Well done, Tesco. I for one salute you.
