A massive thank you to Lauren and the team at Fodilicious for working on this blog post with me.
Hi and welcome back to LivingCoeliac.
I hope you are all okay and doing well. I am excited to say I went back to work at the beginning of the month and it has been an adjustment getting back into daily life after the lock down, anyone else feel the same? If you do, sending massive hugs.
One thing that has been keeping me going is having gluten and dairy free snacks to enjoy. I don’t know about you, but by 3 pm I am starving and just craving a sweet treat. This is why I have been loving the Fodilicious Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons*.
Fodilicious are a UK based company set up by Lauren after suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) since a young age. Her lifestyle of long work hours and busy social life meant she was often having snacks on the go. I can relate to that and it can be very difficult to find good gluten and dairy free products that don’t cause problems later.
Lauren set up Fodilicious and started to create a tasty treat for those suffering with IBS or other food allergies. The end result was the incredible Cocoa Crunch Cookie Buttons that I got to try at the Allergy and Free From Show last year. You can find my blog post here if you are looking for more information. I loved this chocolate treat so much so you can imagine my excitement when I saw they had released a Ginger Crunch option too.

5 Things You Need to Know About the Fodilicious Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons*
1. What are they?
The Fodilicious Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons* are a gluten and dairy free cookie in the shape of a chocolate button. The Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons* are a bite sized snack full of ginger flavour without it being too overpowering. Just like the Cocoa Crunch Cookie Buttons, the Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons* have a shortbread texture and hold their shape well. They come in a 26g pack which serves 2 (or just me because I can not get enough of them!).
I love that they are Coeliac approved and Low FODMAP and being only 47 kCal for 6 biscuits means I can indulge in them without having to worry.
2. Who are the Cookie Buttons Suitable For?
I am a coeliac and since I had to reduce my dairy intake because it flares up my asthma, finding a tasty treat to enjoy can be difficult. One of the things I love most about Fodilicious is that their products are coeliac approved and Low FODMAP which basically means I get to eat the whole pack and not feel guilty. The Cookie Buttons are: gluten, dairy, nut and soya free as well as being vegan. They are great for snacking and sharing too so everyone can enjoy them.
3. Where Can I Buy them?
You can purchase the Cookie Buttons either online through their website found here or through Amazon. Through the Fodilicious store, it costs £5 for 2 packs, £15 for 6 packs or £24 for 12 packs. I also love how you can get just the Cocoa Crunch or the Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons* or mix it up and get a mixture of both. Another great thing is you can either purchase them once or click the repeat order box at checkout to receive weekly or monthly orders.
4. Why Fodilicious?
Okay, aside from the fact that their Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons* are just addictive and I can’t stop eating them? The reason I love Fodilicious so much is because of the work that goes into the brand. All their products use natural ingredients and they are working hard to be more sustainable too. With the ever growing concern on how much waste we make, it can be hard to know what to do about it. Fodilicious use biodegradable and environmentally friendly chemicals to clean as they go. I also love that their shelf ready packaging is 100% recyclable as well as the home delivery boxes.
5. You Can Make Amazing Recipes with the Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons*!
I was so happy when I realised this! I have been missing cheesecake recently and it can be difficult to find a good gluten and dairy free biscuit that can work as a base. The Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons* are perfect! Simply add melted dairy free butter the Cookie Buttons and press firmly into a cake tin. I then mixed dairy free cheese and icing sugar together before adding to the biscuit base. The recipe is a work in progress, but the Cookie Buttons gave a perfect base for Cheesecakes.
There you go! 5 Things You Need to Know about the Fodilicious Ginger Crunch Cookie Buttons. I absolutely love this bite sized snack and find myself enjoying them in the car to work or just at home. They create minimal mess and taste amazing. I hope you try them out.
