Cuisine Cube Gluten Free Subscription Box Review  - September

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).

Cuisine Cube Gluten Free Subscription Box Review Card

Each box comes with a card detailing each of the items included. This month the theme is Back to School!

Cuisine Cube Gluten Free Subscription Box Review  Chips

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!)

Cuisine Cube Gluten Free Subscription Box Review Sweets

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!

Cuisine Cube Gluten Free Subscription Box Review  Couscous

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.

What do you think of Cuisine Cube?

  1. Has anyone compared this against Send Me Gluten Free box? My sister likes the items featured in the blog reviews for Send Me Gluten Free, but none have prices listed. She’s looking for a good gluten-free box for over the wintertime. She’s comfortable cooking/baking gluten-free. I have a feeling I know what I am buying her for Christmas 🙂

    • I actually have a review of that box – I should be finishing it up today! 🙂

      • Thank you.

  2. For whatever it is worth, I tried this sub out last month (we have a gf/cf household and have for years). The value was better last month. I’ll see if I can dig up the info card, but from memory it contained a package of Italian rice cakes (around 8 cakes), a package of hamburger seasoning mix (serves 8), a 12.5 oz. bottle of burger sauce, a box of chocolate cookies (around a dozen cookies), and a package of turkey jerky (don’t recall size, but a good amount. I can’t remember if there was anything else. I’m not sure if this is a great box for me because the value is not fantastic and also because I’m very comfortable with cooking/baking/buying gf/cf foods so I don’t know that I’m likely to be wowed by rice cakes, seasoning packets, cookies, root veggie chips, granola bars, pasta, etc. That said, I got the sub (on Living Social, I think) because I knew that it would make my kids excited to get a box full of food in the mail that they could eat, and it did exactly that.

    • There is something about pretty much every food sub I’ve tried, where the value is pretty close to or even slightly below the price. I almost always end up canceling them. (I have kept UrthBox mostly because the box is full and HEAVY every month, don’t know the value but I perceive it to be there because the box is packed.) I never get the crazy values with food boxes that I do with beauty boxes.

  3. There is a deal on Groupon today for this subscription.

  4. I REALLY love the idea of this box! I recently had to go gluten-free and it is a big transition! Wheat is a component in so many things that even if you KNOW it (know the recipe, etc.), it isn’t as obvious as bread, pasta, cake, etc. After living most of your life a certain way, it’s (kind of surprisingly) easy to just pop something in your mouth and then think “oh, no. I can’t have that any more!” out of habit. While I am in what I like to think of “this transition phase”, it makes it so much easier to be able to try new things like this. I love finding new GF products that work for me! Some are misses that I would rather skip all together than eat the “gluten-free” version. Some are a great swap! If the value is there, this is ideal!! It sounds like this is one that I would like to keep my eye on, but at this point might not be worth it.

  5. This is disappointing. I was hoping they would be closer to the value of the box. I’m always on the lookout for gluten-free items for my sister.
