JUST a quick follow-up to last night’s post on Sainsbury’s ditching the Dietary Specials Mozzarella and Tomato pizzas for their own rubbish version.
I’ve spoken with the exceedingly helpful folks at DS today who confirm that, yes, Sainsbury’s was their only major stockist and that they may now have to discontinue the line completely if no other big supermarket steps in. Deja vu – exactly what happened with Kinnerton milk chocolate. So do give Sainsbury’s a call on 0800 636 262, option ’5′, and ask them to reconsider.
On the plus side, other allergy-friendly DS pizzas, including a thin crust Margherita and a new Bonta d’Italia line that I’ve yet to try but which is also egg, wheat, nut and seed free, are stocked variously in Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and online via Goodness Direct and Ocado.
It’s typical, because I much preferred the deep pan Mozzarella & Tomato to the Margherita, which does taste suspiciously like those deep frozen mini pizzas you used to buy in stacks, wrapped in plastic, from Sainsbury’s in the 1980s…
Still, beggars can’t be choosers and, once more, hooray for DS for creating a line of pizzas that my multiple allergic Sid can eat, if only now and again at parties. Which is a big thing for us.
