There are hundreds of gluten-free products poised to hit store shelves this year, and if you are a gluten-free foodie like me, then you want to try them all without breaking the bank. Not all gluten-free foods are created equally, so we are fortunate there are companies out there ready to deliver gluten-free sample boxes right to your doorstep.
These companies offer monthly, quarterly, and yearly subscription services that save you money and time by taking the guess work out of buying and trying new gluten-free products. Sample boxes contain new products each month and you can discontinue your membership at any time, so there is no long-term commitment.
There are a number of companies providing product sample boxes, but not all can guarantee their samples are and always will be gluten free. Companies like Bestowed and Conscious Box are working to offer more customization with their sample boxes, including vegan and gluten-free options.
- GFree Connect - their care packages are sent out each quarter and contain 25 or more gluten-free items to sample, coupons, professional/organization information on celiac centers, health care professionals, support groups, and more. Care packs cost $29.99, but all new customers will receive the first one for $19.99 (plus shipping and handling).
- Healthy Surprise - sends you a box every month filled with gluten-free snacks that are free of artificial ingredients. Everything in the box is gluten free, vegan, and hand selected to deliver a balance of sweet and salty snacks. This box can be purchased in varying serving sizes. Use the code ‘HSEXAMINER’ for $5.00 off a sample box. Offer good through the end of July.
- PaleoPax - each month they hand-select five gluten-free and paleo snacks from producers across the country and ship them to you on the 15th of the month. Their fees start at $18 a month and all of their snacks have been and will continue to be gluten free. The company has extended a $2 discount code (examiner) that will last until the end of July.
- Savorfull - delivers samples of gluten-free, peanut-free and dairy-free foods, recipes and nutritional tips to your door for $15 per month (free shipping). They just launched and they are offering deals on membership, so check out what they have to offer.
These types of services would make a fabulous gift for the gluten-free foodie in your life and are a great way to discover new gluten-free products for a fraction of the cost.
Have you tried any of these sample box services? What did you think?
