HI, I am new to this site and have been reading through some of the blogs. I wanted to share this with you to see if some of you have had similar experiences. I was diagnosed coeliac about 2 months ago after about 6 years of constant illness (oh and it was me who diagnosed myself not the numerous doctors who I have seen). Anyway my weakness is cakes and biccies, so I've been looking around for subsitutes and contacting some manufacturers to see what their future lines would be. So I contacted McVities, here is their response;
Thank you for your email. I'm really sorry to hear about your recent dietary diagnosis. We have no plans to introduce any gluten-free biscuits in the near future, it does not feature in our current business strategy nor does it fit in with our branding. Also, gluten-free is a niche market therefore it seems unlikely that we will do such a range of biscuits.
I'm really sorry, I hope you are able to find suitable and equally delicious biscuits elsewhere.
Yeah, I will admit that it really annoyed me.
