! I was provided a box for free for both myself and as a giveaway. KC from G-Free Foodie / Love With Food also happens to be a dear friend – however, I would not post and share about it if I did not fully support her and think these boxes are awesome. There are also referral links in this post – all those are marked with an asterisk!
I love surprises. I have a subscription box addiction. And I love delicious food. So naturally, I would love a box with gourmet treats finding its way to me every month.
Subscription boxes have really started to take off – I get makeup, workout gear*, razors and even shoes* delivered monthly. And I have wanted a food box in the worst way. My friends get these snazzy boxes of gourmet treats from a variety of sources. Packages of snack food, global treats and gourmet ingredients. For way too long, I had no (or few) options for a truly safe gourmet box.
Sure, you can get TasteGuru or Send Me Gluten Free if you need safe options. Those are great services that I wish existed when I went gluten-free nearly 10 years ago. These days, those boxes don’t fit what I’m looking for. Those are full of snacks and cooking mixes that would have saved me money on thrown away food. Introduced me to snacks I might never have bought. But the food in them is always safe. They are a great way to sample all those foods. But that’s what they are. I found them to be filled with foods I knew about or had tried and nothing that embraced my love of cooking.
That’s where the Gluten-Free Box from Love With Food comes in. KC Pomering of G-Free Foodie started a subscription box to fill this need – gluten-free boxes filled with artisanal / gourmet treats. It was a thoroughly awesome box when it started, but now that the box comes from Love With Food, it is even better. I get the same awesome box curated by KC and a meal gets donated. I’d say that’s a win.
What comes in the boxes?
I’ve received everything from spice blends and fancy pants tomato paste to spice rubs, pasta and gourmet push pops. I’ve started keeping the tomato and umami paste in my kitchen all the time and using an alcohol free vanilla in my smoothies.
Oh, and you can win a box!
Just leave a comment below and I will pick a winner on June 30,2015 at 11am central time. (You do have to live in the US to win).
