Has anyone seen anything in store(s) yet? I'm going to the local 'big' Tesco after work with my fingers crossed!

I'm just going up to the Extra store now - I'll let you know in an hour or so.

I wonder now if it is the melty sheese and the Tesco deal is why it has never really appeared as a Sheese product. Makes sense if you think about it.

I just had a cherry yoghurt and it was lush.

Do the yogurts taste like the alpro yogurts? I find they always have a soy taste to them.

I couldn't taste soy but my tastebuds for dessert type/sweet stuff are way off, mostly!

Oh, of course! Today is the day it's meant to be in the shop! I guess I'll be going to Tesco later...

Dear Tesco Extra in Salisbury,
You suck hairy balls, you warty cockdribble. Not only do you have no luscious new Free From products, you also made me have a conversation with your deficient customer service person in this vein:
Me - I can't find the new Free From products - do you know anything about the launch?
She - There aren't any new Free From products. Which one was you looking for?
Me - Creme caramel and soya cheese.
She - All the Free From products are in the bakery aisle.
Me - Not if they're cheese, they won't be.
She - They'll be in the cheese section.
Me - I did check there, but there weren't any - do you know anything about the launch?
She - There aren't any new Free From products. Which one was you looking for?
Up yours,
Ruby Rose

Dear Small but Perfectly Formed Tesco in Amesbury,
You rawk so hard. Thanks to your marvellous, bountiful abundance of new Free From products I have creme caramel, two kinds of melty sheese (for it is this), a tub of sheese spread and cheddar style sheese spread for a third cheaper than the health food shop, cherry yoghurt, hazlenut, almond, and chocolate coconut milk, and jellies. Did I mention creme caramel?

On the down side, it is challenging of you to have Alpro hazlenut and almond milks at £1.37 (cheaper than £1.57 for the new Free From ones). Storage space in my house is limited, don't you know.
Love, hugs and oodles of smacky-poo kisses,
Ruby Rose xx

Tee hee. Was it all in the fridge then? Some of it actually doesn't need to be stored in the fridge when you scrutinise the packaging, but I assume it'll all be together in the shop?

Yeah, in Amesbury they had it all together in the chiller, near the lacto-free cheese and yoghurt. While I was there, the lad came with the boxes of jellies and I kind of pounced on them before they even got on the shelves...

Creme caramel.

It's by no means the rich, luxurious texture and flavour of Spanish creme caramel, but it's a nice addition to the sweet-things-in-a-pot range.

If the melty Sheese is only going to be available in Tesco I am going to be really pissed off!

This was what I bought today - how exciting it was! I think I probably went a bit wide eyed when I found all the stuff.......there is plenty more than this. Lots of milks and 2 other spreads, yoghurts, desserts, etc.

The cheddar spread is nice and strong tasting. I haven't tried the rest yet - trying not to open it all at once :)

Hahahah +1

I have to get to a big Tesco tomorrow! I might have to buy faux cheeses for once.
K so I can only find Tesco Expresses or Tesco Metros. I know express is teeny but do you think Metro would have them?

I've only got a metro near me as well RandiJM - I'd be really surprised if they did the range, but being an optimist I'm going to have a look tomorrow. The cheddar spread has caught my eye...

The good news is that all of the cheese products look like Sheese stuff so we're not really missing much.

Sadly, none of the Expresses/Metros I've been to have ever had any of the Free From stuff. But the one across the street form Liverpool Street Station might - that Tesco is HUGE (well, for a Metro).

I'm super-excited about this new range though! I'm going to visit the big Tescos down the road for me to see what I can find - I hope they have cheeze!

They don't have any of this in my Tesco. I doubt we'll get it here. I feel sad.
