Send Me Gluten Free Subscription Box Review – December 2014
Send me Gluten Free is a new monthly gluten-free food subscription box. If you’ve been looking for a Taste Guru alternative, I think this is a good option – the send a variety of snack and meal items.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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
Each box comes with an envelope with lots of coupons for the gluten-free brands featured this month. These usually include at least one completely free product coupon, which adds to the value of the box.
Bonta Italia Schar Pasta – Value $1
Simply 7 Snacks Quinoa Chips – Value $1
Chebe Focaccia Mix Gluten Free – Value $4?
This gluten-free pasta is made with sugar cane syrup, which I like to avoid in things like pasta when I can, so it will be a backup pantry item if needed. (My go-to gluten free pasta right now is Trader Joes organic brown rice pasta).
I’ve tried these Quinoa chips before thanks to subscription boxes, and they’re very good.
Wow – this focaccia mix gets great review on Amazon and is free off all major allergens!
Lucy’s Gluten Free 2 Chocolate Chip Cookies – Value $1
Mum-Mum Snax in Apple Cinnamon – Value $.75
I avoid even gluten-free oats, so I couldn’t try the first two products, but I’ve been told by several people that Lucy’s cookies are amazing. The Mum-Mum snack is kind of like a rice cake/cracker. Judging by the Amazon reviews it seems to be primarily aimed at toddlers/kids, but I like it too!
Smarty Pants Vitamin Samples – Value $1
Sauce Goddess Sweet Heat Spice Rub Sample – Value $1
I like Smarty Pants gummies, so I’m always OK with getting more of their samples in subscription boxes. And spices are one of those items that I probably should be thinking more about to get ones that are verified gluten free – not just don’t have gluten as an ingredient. This rub smells amazing and it is also free of dairy, nuts, MSG, and preservatives.
French and Italian Cuisine Passport – Value $6
Massel 7’s Bouillon Cubes Beef Style – Value $2.50
Massel Concentrated Liquid Stock Beef Style – Value $2.50
This Let’s Eat Out! pocket guide walks you through typical French and Italian menu items, advises you on what items are a best fit for your allergies and what to ask or request from your server when ordering. I didn’t know these little pocket guides existed, but I think they are great – traveling with dietary restrictions can definitely make the trip a little stressful (at least for me).
FYI – both of these Massel items are also vegan in addition to being gluten free.
Verdict: I’m impressed with the variety of products Send Me Gluten Free includes in their boxes, and I like that they include a lot of coupons too. Conservatively this box has a value of about $25 – including the value of the free item coupon. I think that’s a pretty good value for a food box like this one – and a great value if you sign up for the annual subscription up front with the GETHOOKED coupon code – it brings the cost down to just $15 a box!
