Marks & Spencer Gluten Free Bread New Lower Price of £2.40 Per Loaf

I am kinda loathe to post this, considering how expensive gluten free bread is, but it is actually quite a saving for all of us who can only eat gluten free bread.

Marks & Spencer have reduced the price of their gluten free loaves from £3.00 down to a new lower price of £2.40. Apparently it is permanent.

This includes the brown seeded, plain white and the bloomer loaves.

The loaves in my local store - Swansea - seemed smaller than normal, if such a thing is possible, but I checked the weight on the packaging and the weights were the same as normal. I suspect that it was just a batch of small, um, batches.

Enjoy.

I like the Tesco one very much. But IMPO the M&S one is much better.

In order I would buy the M&S loaves, then the Tesco ones. I would not look twice at Genius loaves anymore and the Sainsbury ones are gross IMPO.
Thanks for the information, I was not aware of M&S's offering. My current favourite GF bread is the Warburtons' sourdough range (available at Sainsburys) but it is really expensive.

I used to buy that and thought it was really good until I bought a load that was more holes than bread. When I contacted them to complain I heard nothing back.

The M&S bread is, IMPO, the best of the gf breads but it all comes down to personal taste at the end of the day. One good thing is that there are distinct flavours and textures between their batch, their bloomer and their boule loaves.

It is the only gf bread that I can enjoyed a boiled egg sarnie with and is great for a bit of cheese on toast or similar.

Give it a go. If no good, you will have had a new experience at least.

Looks like I am going to be super cold here. I suspect lots of non-coeliacs are just seeing this as an expensive bread compared to what non-coeliacs have to pay. Well, it is but for people like myself it is a life-saver.

yeah probably but nm eh,
i will certainly look to get some of this to try next time i am in town near m&s
btw genius seem to have changed their recipe and have improved the "hole factor" considerably, as sainsburys is the closest to me and had genius on offer i tried a few loaves over several weeks and it is definitely less "holy"

The taste and texture of genius puts me off now. It too had a hole problem but I just find it yuck now.

The M&S is the closest I have found to real bread. But, as I said, it is a matter of personal taste.

If you are in an M&S late of an evening you might find one of these loaves down to about £1.50 - even then more expensive than a wheat loaf... but I have no problem with buying them on the expiry date and using them within a few days.
