I was recently asked to review the G-Free Foodie Box from Love with Food–and I could not have been more excited. As they say on their website: “Love With Food helps you discover new organic or all-natural snacks delivered to your door every month. Every month, Love With Food members will receive a curated box of unique, hard-to-find tasty snacks which varies based on seasonal themes. For every box sold, we donate a meal to several food banks such as the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength – No Kid Hungry. Join us to help end child hunger one meal at a time!” Delicious snacks AND you get to contribute to a good cause? Sold.
The background: Love with Food’s gluten free box comes with 8-12 snacks that are “totally gluten-free and also organic or all-natural, with no artificial junk.”
The money: The gluten-free box runs you $24.50 a month.
The goods: Here’s a shot of everything I got in my box. My favorite item was definitely the Key Lime White Chocolate Cookies from WOW Baking Company. These were some of the most moist, tasty GF cookies I’ve ever had! The flavor is distinct but not overpowering, and the cookies are small enough you can have one or two without feeling super guilty.
I also loved this new-to-me pancake mix from Cup4Cup–the pancakes were incredibly fluffy and just the right amount of sweet! The sample package made three generous servings of pancakes.
The Baked Mac n’ Cheese Puffs from Snikiddy were also great–I have a real weakness for Cheetos, and these took care of the salty craving without the scary orange coloring and all of those pesky chemicals. The only “meh” for me was the sunflower butter cup from Sun Cups–the flavor was pretty bland and the chocolate was a little bit on the bitter side.
The verdict: The price tag is a little bit high, but you absolutely get your money’s worth of snacks in the box. While I generally try to avoid buying processed baked goods and salty snack foods, I loved that the box came with plenty of relatively healthy options from small companies I might not find at the grocery story. I think this box is perfect for those of you who are on-the-go snackers, and especially anyone with kids at home. If you’re new to eating gluten free, this would also be a great introductory subscription (and a FAB gift if you have Celiac friends/family!)
