5 Seasonal Gluten-Free Foods to Try this Autumn

October marks the start of the soup season and while pumpkins tend to hog the limelight, there are a number of suitably autumnal treats to help warm us up and ward off those winter blues. Here’s my pick of the best:

Cottage Delight Bonfire Fudge

Cottage Delight have been making fudge for over forty years and this limited edition Bonfire Fudge flavour does not disappoint. Made using black treacle and muscovado sugar to the company’s award-winning traditional butter recipe, the fudge is hand whisked for a creamy texture and homemade taste – the distinct, burnt-caramel flavours of the black treacle and smoky muscovado sure to brighten up any dark night.

Joe & Seph’s Toffee Apple & Cinnamon Popcorn

Nothing beats the crunch of a toffee apple on a crisp autumnal evening, and this Great Taste Award-winning  Toffee Apple & Cinnamon Popcorn flavoured popcorn from Joe & Seph’s really takes the traditional childhood treat to a whole new level. Crunch into the smooth toffee coating and chew over the apple and Saigon cinnamon, smug in the knowledge this is gourmet popcorn made from 100% natural ingredients, air-popped by a small team of pastry chefs in London. Because who can really be bothered with making toffee anyway.
