Send Me Gluten Free Subscription Box Review – September 2014
Send me Gluten Free is a new monthly gluten-free food subscription box. I avoid gluten and dairy in my diet, so I am always looking for new boxes full of food I can actually eat!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Before I get to the food, the envelope in the box contains lots of coupons for the gluten-free brands featured this month.
The Subscription Box: Send me Gluten Free
The Cost: $30 a month (less with longer subscription)
The Products: Gluten free foods and other products.
Ships to: US only
Go Picnic Turkey Pepperoni & Cheese – Value $4
Pamela’s Pancake & Baking Mix – Value $2.50
These Go Picnic snacks are the best! They have lots of different versions, and everyone I’ve sampled so far has been tasty! For road trips these are an absolute must. (If you avoid gluten/dairy/etc and have ever tried to find good food at a rest stop/gas station etc. I’m sure you know what I mean!)
Pamela’s is one of my favorite baking mixes for gluten-free cakes, cookies, etc. Unfortunately for me, this one has dairy in it, but many of their mixes do not.
Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips in Barbecue – Value $1.50
PHO Chicken Broth (4 packets) – Value $3?
Giddy Up & Go Granola – Value $2
Beanfields chips seem to be a staple in snack subscription boxes, but I like them a lot, so that’s fine by me! (And this is a new flavor).
Lovely Candy Co. Chocolate Caramel Swirls – Value $3
Schlar Honeygrams – Value $1.50
SoyJoy Blueberry Bar – Value $1.50
I’ve never been a big fan of SoyJoy bars, but these honegram shortbread cookies were pretty good (and dairy free too!)
Virtuous Living Spice Mixes – Value $1
Kelapo Organic Coconut Oil – Value $1
SoapBox Shower Gel Sample – $.50
I haven’t given much though to gluten-free spices, but if you need food items that are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility definitely check out Virtuous Living.
Verdict: The value of this box came to about $23. Knowing that food boxes tend to not have great values, I signed up for the year plan in advance with the coupon, so this box cost me $16. (If a food box offers a substantial discount for buying multiple boxes upfront it is a great way to make sure you get a good value).
Of course I’d like to see the value be a little closer to the standard $30 a month cost. On the plus side, I like the variety of items included, and the box covers both snack and pantry items which is a major win for me. I also like that they include a ton of coupons for the brands featured that month.
