If you’ve been around here long and/or paying attention you know that I eat gluten-free. I found that avoiding gluten greatly improved my pain levels and fatigue. I generally try to avoid a lot of processed foods but with the crazy school schedule I’ve found that convenience has to win sometimes. So, when I had the chance to check out Send Me Gluten Free I jumped on it to see what kind of new and interesting gluten-free products they would send me.
Send Me Gluten Free sent me their November box for free in exchange for my honest review and sharing with you what I thought of the process and product. If you aren’t familiar with SMGF, it’s a subscription service that sends you a new box of totally gluten-free products each month. It’s like a little Christmas surprise each time you get a box and that’s pretty much how I felt when my box arrived.
This is what I saw when I first opened the box and I couldn’t help but think “YUM”. These will make great snacks when I’m rushed between classes and don’t have time to eat much. But, then I pulled the chips out of the way and revealed even more yummy surprises.
Each box contains 8-12 full and sample size gluten-free products. I was quite happy to find that my box contained mostly full-size products with a couple of samples thrown in. In addition to the chips I found a sample of Schar gluten-free bread. I’ve seen this in the stores but it was a little expensive for me to risk buying and trying. There was a Kratos beef bar, a gluten-free beef stock (to which my husband replied “is that really a problem? and I said “yes!”. I’m looking forward to making this Jambalaya even though Jambalaya is not something that typically has a gluten issue. The Teeccino samples were really surprisingly good. It’s an herbal tea that tastes more like coffee. And, it’s decaf. The Nogi bar was a great snack and the Hope bar looks like something I’ll love. You caught that “was” right? Because that was the first thing I tried in the box.
Of course, I’m not going to like everything in the box (I hated the beef bar), but some of the items are definite winners. Overall it’s a pretty decent deal for $25 (including shipping) and it gets cheaper if you do longer subscriptions. This would make an excellent gift for someone who is gluten-free. I know it’s a gift that I’d certainly love to try. If you’d like to give Send Me Gluten Free a try they have offered to give all of my readers a discount of 20% off of any subscription length.
