Living and travelling gluten free in the UK, Australia & around the world!

Bellarine Peninsula and Geelong 100% gluten free

Welcome to the next in the series of 100% gluten free listings around Victoria, the Bellarine Peninsula and Geelong gluten free.  Already published is Melbourne and The Great Ocean Road.

100% gluten free Geelong

Geelong is Victoria’s second largest city, and is around 75km south west of Melbourne and is the gateway to the Great Ocean Road. There are a number of great gluten free options in the area, but this post focuses on 100% gluten free.

The criteria I use for inclusion is that the food has to be 100% gluten free food (ensuring no cross contamination risk) and have its own outlet that you can visit.

OMG Decadent Donuts

Crackle Corn

This popcorn is highly addictive, so I warn you, you will not be able to stop at one handful!  Choose from salted caramel, burnt honey caramel, rosemary caramel, gingerbread caramel, peanut butter caramel, and chocolate caramel. All flavours are gluten free and there is the option for a dairy free salted caramel.  All packets may contain traces of nuts, soy & sesame.

Look out for them at Creators Market, Bellarine, other Geelong events and at various markets around Melbourne and regional Victoria.  Look out for market details on Instagram, Facebook and their website. If you can’t wait for the next market, you can also order online.

Gluten Free by Isaac

Started by 10 year old Isaac who was missing donuts, they produce a variety of donuts, wagon wheels and other sweet treats that you can find in stockists around Geelong*.

*This listing is an exception to the ‘own outlet’ requirement, as Geelong is small enough for you to easily find stockists.  Cbeck their social media on the day to see what is available and where.  Photos used with permission.
