Cuisine Cube Gluten Free Subscription Box Review
Cuisine Cube is a gluten-free subscription box that specializes in pantry/meal items. (A lot of food subscription boxes are more snack oriented, so this is a nice change for me).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Cuisine Cube
The Cost: $34.99 a month (or $29.99 a month with 6-month subscription)
The Products: Gluten-free grocery items.
Ships to: US
Each box comes with a card detailing each of the items included. This month the theme is Back to School!
Wai Lana Cassava Chips – Retail Value $3
Original Crunchy SuperButter – Retail Value $6.50
These chips were eat-the-entire-bag good, and a nice alternative to the potato chip. Any my husband loves the crunchy superbutter. (We also recently discovered the Trader Joes peanut/flaxseed/chia seed butter and highly recommend it!)
The Handmade Really Healthy Satisfying All Natural Cookie – Value $3
Bee Nut Free Chocolate Chip Granola Bar – Value $2
Bee Nut Free Cranberry Citrus Energy Bar – Value $2
These are gluten free, but they are made with gluten-free oats (which I also avoid – it is really difficult going out to dinner with me), so I’ll be sharing these!
Molino Nicoli Gluten Free Couscous – Retail Value $3
Le Veneziane Express Microwave Pasta – Retail Value $4.50
Both of these items are made with corn flour. I’m especially excited about the couscous since I’m used to just subbing in rice in recipes, now I can actually make couscous!
Verdict: Based on my calculations this box has a retail value of about $24. I’m pretty disappointed in the value and I’d like to see them get much closer to the $35 a month cost. On the plus side, I really like the variety and brands featured in this box. A few of them aren’t even US based, and I discovered quite a few new-to-me products in this box.
After one box I decided to cancel my subscription for now, and the good news is that you can cancel or pause your subscription from your online account – no calling in or emailing! I think this box has a lot of things going for it, and if they can improve the value even a little bit I’ll probably resubscribe.
