I always love trying new gluten-free products, especially gluten-free delivery boxes. I am a huge fan of the gluten-free Freshly meals, and eat them on a regular basis. Today I have the pleasure of renewing a slightly newer gluten-free and dairy-free subscription box service called American Gluten-Free.
American Gluten-Free Review
First off, I love the name! I am a proud American and also proud to be 100% gluten-free. The company was founded by a girl name Erika, who has non-Celiac gluten intolerance and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. This is kind of similiar to myself in that I have Ulcerative Colitis, not Celiac Disease, but I still can’t eat gluten without getting sick. I never cheat, otherwise I would be in my bed for days. Erika discovered that there are awesome brands out there creating new tasty gluten-free products everyday. So she created American Gluten-Free (AGF).
American Gluten-Free is a subscription box service where you can choose a box and you get new awesome gluten-free products/food each month. All of the products in their boxes are both gluten-free and dairy-free. All products are either certified gluten-free and/or made in dedicated gluten-free facilities. Most of them are also vegan, but they can’t guarantee anything for other allergens. They currently ship to all 50 states in the US and in early 2017 are expanding to the UK. They have two different types of boxes:
Option 1- Discovery Snack Box
The first type of box you can choose is the Discovery Snack Box. Each box includes 8-10 snacks such as chips, granola, cookies, dried fruits, nut butters, crackers, and lots of other sweet & salty snacks! This is personally what I chose. Ironically I am not a big fan of cooking. Which definitely makes my life eating gluten-free harder. Below is a picture of what the box contained. Sorry, I couldn’t wait to open a couple haha. A few are missing, but the entire contents are all listed below.
Here is a list of the products in the box:
- My Grandpa’s Farm – Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix
- Le Pain De Fleurs – Quinoa Crispbread
- Mary’s Gone Crackers – Sea Salt Pretzels
- Sweet Freedom Bakery – Magic Bar
- Oskri – Chocolate Covered Raisins
- Rawxies – Lemon Poppy Seed Cookie
- Tasty Brand – Mixed Fruit Snacks
- Kind Bar – Popped Dark Chocolate
The chocolate covered raisins were by far my favorite! OMG, they are probably one of my new favorite gluten-free cheat foods. I am seriously going to be ordering those in bulk from now on. I also enjoyed the Le Pain Des Fleurs crispbread. I try to stay away from grains, which a lot of chips and crackers contain. So these are a nice treat which are 100% gluten, soy, and grain-free. They also taste amazing with my favorite gluten-free hummus.
You have three different options:
- Month-to-Month $24.95/month
- 3 Month Pre-Pay $24.00/month
- 6 Month Pre-Pay $23.00/month
I actually priced out each item myself and it came to around $27, and that requires you buying some of the items in bulk. So the prices on these boxes are very good! And shipping is $4.95 or less. You can also get a one-time gift box if you are just wanting to try it out. Note: All subscriptions can be cancelled at anytime if you aren’t happy.
Option 2 – Food Pantry Box
Your other option is a food pantry box. For those of you who enjoy cooking, this is definitely the box to try. Each box includes 7-9 mostly full size ingredients and pantry staples to create delicious meals.
Above is an example of what was in the February food box, which contained the following items:
- Chebe – Foccacia Bread Mix
- Finger Lakes – Wine Flour
- Andean Dream – Organic Quinoa Spaghetti
- Equal Exchange – Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
- Equal Exchange – 55% Dark Chocolate Hearts
- Orchard Bay – Dried Cherries
- “Nessie” Ladle
You have three different options:
- Month-to-Month $36.95/month
- 3 Month Pre-Pay $36.00/month
- 6 Month Pre-Pay $35.00/month
All in all, I was very impressed with the American Gluten-Free. If you are wanting a way to discover new gluten-free products or foods, this is definitely on my recommended list. A great strategy I have found is to subscribe to a box service like this, find products you like, and then order them in bulk on Amazon. After about 6 boxes you will have a whole new line of foods you have never tried that you love.
Have you tried American Gluten-Free yet? Or perhaps you tried a different gluten-free box subscription service. If so, I would love to hear your thoughts below.
