M&S Gluten Free Bread: White Rolls

To much delight amongst the gluten free community, Marks and Spencer have finally got their act together and brought out some gluten free products.

The M&S gluten free range contains plenty of sweet treats which I’m not particularly taken with but they have two product lines that I was keen to try. White baps and a brown seeded loaf.


First up, the white baps (hard to type without thoughts of ‘Carry On’ films!)


I had the roll with gluten free sausages, onions slowly fried with balsamic vinegar and lashings of ketchup.


Sadly my initial overwhelming joy at being able to have sausages or burgers in a gluten free roll (just looking at that photo is making me hungry) began to fade as I ate. The bap was simply too crumbly. Regular readers will know I don’t usually like white bread but in this case a sugary flavour wasn’t the problem, the roll disintegrating in my hands was.

Would I buy them again? Probably, but this is more a reflection of a gap in the market for gluten free rolls than the quality of the M&S white baps.

Next up…M&S brown seeded loaf.

    Have you tried the brown M&S baps? My son loves them for burgers!Much heavier than the white ones. I am trying to source Mrs Crimbles Breadcrumbs for making snitzels but only stockist I can find is going to charge £10 for postage.We live in Belfast but that is ridiculous.Sainsburys has also stopped stocking the glutenfree pantry pizza mix which we all liked.

      I haven’t tried the brown baps but I’m a big fan of the M&S brown sliced bread with the seeds on top. Lovely. I haven’t seen any of the Mrs Crimbles breadcrumds either but I think Hale & Hearty do breadcrumbs if you have a local stockist of them?

      On the pizza mix front, have you tried Isobel’s gluten free pizza mix? It’s very good and you can order online:

    Hi Can anyone tell me where I can order Mrs Crimbles breadcrumbs – can’t find them anywhere although I am aware that even though Sainsburys have stopped stocking them, there are other stockists somewhere out there?

      Hello, sorry but I haven’t seen the Mrs Crimbles breadcrumbs for a long time either. Have you tried the Hale & Hearty gluten free breadcrumnbs instead? They’re very good.
