Raleys Confectionary I Heart U Mom Rock Candies $5

I’ve had these before and they are alright, not a candy that I would crave or have to run out to get more.  I also do not like how the back of my bag the nutrition facts are not visible, its like their printer ran out of ink when they were printing this, which is rude. Especially if I’m supposed to give this to my mom – what mom doesn’t read nutritional facts?!

Organicasaurus Tangy Tomato Puffs  $3.40

First of all, LOVE the shapes! How fun is that to snack on little dinosaurs and still have a healthy little snack! 14 Puffs are 140 calories, 0 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein!

Biatalia Gluten Free Couscous $5

I’m such a fan of couscous so I was very excited to see this in my box and I can not wait to find a recipe to try this out with!

image4

Bobo’s Oat Bars $3.30

This bar is made with dried peaches and gluten free oats! They suggest it as a breakfast bar which is such a wonderful idea and I will be saving it for when I have to go in to work early this week, as a fast on the go kind of breakfast.

Rabbit Creek Red Velvet Cake Mix $10.65

Love red velvet cake so this is a total win for me and my family!! The only thing you have to add to this mix is butter, milk, vanilla, and an egg. It seems all pretty simple but seems simply perfect.

image6

Vino de Milo Cherry Riesling $5.99

I wasn’t sure what to use this with until I went on their website! The suggested putting it on waffles, mixing it with mayo and putting it on a burger, and topping it on brie. I love all of those ideas and now very excited to make baked brie and topping it with this! This is also made with real wine!

image8

This Cuisine Cube is $35 and I have received $33.35. So I haven’t even hit the price that I have spent on this box.  I did enjoy the curation and discovering new and healthy gluten free food products and I still will enjoy creating dinner and eating the delicious food. But I don’t think I will be buying this box again without another coupon! What did you think of this months box?

J&M Cheese Straws $2.10 each bag. These cheese straws are all natural, no trans fat and non-gmo.  They look unappetizing, but are actually alright. They are pretty spicy though. But honestly not a snack I would go out and buy again.

image 9

Clairesquares Buttery Shortbread Square $1 Each?  I thought this came with two cookies because the cookie was so thick, but it is only one. Its like a little buttery brick. This shortbread square is absolutely heavenly. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys shortbread cookies! Luckily for me they sell them at Whole Foods! Find out where you can get yours!

image 2

BeanFeilds Ranch Bean & Rice Chips $1.25 My only regret is that I only received one of these. I wish I got two bags they are so delicious! They are vegan, corn free, gluten free, all natural, non gmo, 4g of protein & fiber, AND 0g of sugar. These chips are so good. Luckily a lot of stores in my neighborhood carry this brand ( even my high school apparently ) check to see where you can get yours!

image 5

Nutryvita Cinnamon And Sugar Bananinha Banana Bar $1 Each?  I grabbed one on the go and when I opened it, I’m not even going to lie, it looked my yorkies poo in a wrapper. BUT it was actually so amazingly delicious. Its brown but it has to be the cinnamon, because it was so sweet and obviously still tasted like banana. I can only find them on amazon at this time though.

image 11

Snapea Crisps $1 each? These gross me out so much, they are like potato chips. They are so greasy and I’m not even exaggerating when I say I throw up a little just looking at the bag. Eating these make me feels so greasy and fat and disgusting after having them. I don’t recommend them.

image

Flamous Organic Original Falafel Chips $1.25 each.I was expecting to hate these chips, but there are actually so good. I don’t find them spicy at all. NO: gluten, wheat, dairy, lactose, trans fat, cholesterol, MSG, GMO, hydrogenated oil, preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, nuts, soy, or shellfish. Find a location near you.

image 3

Angies BoomChickaPop Sea Salt Popcorn $1.25 each I have seen these all over so I’m excited to actually get the chance to try them. I’m not really a popcorn kind of person but this one is ok. kind of bland in flavor actually. Not really sure if I would go out of my way to get it though. I like that the whole bag is only 90 calories though.

image 4

Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans $.25 each? I didn’t think I was going to like these, I’m not a fan of jelly candies but these are delicious. They are the perfect balance of fruity and sweet. I would pick these up at a store for sure! Find a store near you.

image 7

Justins Honey Almond Butter & Chocolate Almond Butter $1 each. I’m not a fan of almond butter or peanut butter but my sister says that these a delicious and pretty costly in the jars. She wants me to try them because she promises “they are that good”. They do have 4.5 stars on amazon, so they must be doing something right.

image 8

So i’m not really sure how this is considered “monster mash” because nothing about this box was halloween -y. I hate how they always makes themes for their selves and then never stick with it or come through. I’m done with Love with food box all together. I never see the value in their boxes.

For right now I will not be getting anymore taster boxes from love with food. What did you think of this months love with food?

They are bite sized and crunchy and are actually pretty good. I’m actually surprised. You can taste the sunflower seed in them, so if you are not a fan I’m not sure how you would feel about that. but these aren’t half bad. They have a bitter taste from the dutch cocoa, I assume. These kind of taste like coco puffs.

Pink Lemonade Donut Mix $7.99  * Baking * I was so excited to see this because I have never seen anything like this. I thought this was such a unique gluten free item to include in this box! I’m unsure of the flavor though. It seems like a weird flavor to incorporate in donuts. No gluten, no GMOs, No soy, No dairy, No nuts, No refined sugar! I’m so excited to make these! Maybe I will make a post of making these and how they taste!

IMG_1512

Freedom Cocoa Crunch Cereal $6.64 * Breakfast * This cereal is free from gluten, wheat, nuts, soy, lactose, dairy, and egg. Also natural colors and flavors and no GMO ingredients and a good source of fiber. There isn’t much of a taste with this cereal.

IMG_1509

This Cuisine Cube is $35 and I have received $31.33. So I haven’t even hit the price that I have spent on this box. Also I bought this box for my sister who is gluten free and she still can not have these items because all of the gluten free items in this box are made with almond flour or rice flour, which she is also allergic too! She is so difficult!  I did enjoy the curation and discovering new and healthy gluten free food products and I still will enjoy creating dinner and eating the delicious food. But I don’t think I will be buying this box again without another coupon! What did you think of this months box?

Urthbox Gluten Free Box Review – Medium – June 2014

Urthbox is a Subscription box that delivers monthly healthy FULL SIZE treats! YES FINALLY! I hate paying for samples, samples should be free.

But since I had the living social deal I only payed $19.

This is the box it arrived in

Ground-Based Nutrition Superfood Protein Smoothie $3.33 SAMPLE SIZE!? Thats really disappointing since they advertise only full sized products on their website. This is a single serving packet. This is a plant based protein blend. It is vegan friendly, no soy, dairy, or whey. It has no artificial colors, flavors, or dyes. It is high in fiber and is all natural. Includes super greens and 17g of protein per serving. The flavor is milk chocolate. It has no sugar so i’m concerned about the taste. On amazon the reviewers claim this protein smoothie to be “the best tasting” and “not chalky”. Can’t wait to try it.

IMG_1372

Smooch Fruit Snack $3 Mine came in Apple, Raspberry& Peach. It is 100% natural, made with real fruit, and only 70 calories! I’m extra excited because my sister, who is allergic to everything, can actually have this!

IMG_1371

Snikiddy Eat Your Vegetables $1? I’m guessing a dollar because this is a sample size. I’ve recently tried snikiddy snacks before and they were very light with all the calories.But they are gluten free, no MSG, no cholesterol, Non GMO, and contain no nuts.

IMG_1367

Katapult Wild Fire Chips $6.50 In Chia Cayenne Lime. They are “everything the body needs in a chip”. They are raw, sprouted, gluten free, organic, whole super foods, blended with a balanced ratio to give your body everything it needs to thrive.

It has 4.5 stars on amazon and everyone is raving over the great taste. One guy proclaimed that he lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks from drinking this without exercise!

IMG_1379

Ips Egg White Chips $1.50 I’ve recently tried these in another box. They are all natural, 6 grams of protein, gluten free, non-gmo corn, 0 grams trans fat, no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  They are actually really delicious and have a great real cheddar taste.

IMG_1375

Stur Love Water Naturally $4.16 It has 4.5 stars on amazon and has mixed reviews about flavor. I have received the Mint Cucumber and I’m not all that sure how I feel about this yet. It smells like mint gum so I’m not sure I would want to drink that.

IMG_1374

Seaweed Love – All Natural Roasted Seaweed  $.71 I’ve always been kind of freaked out about eating seaweed but this one has four stars on amazon and people have been saying that is much better than asian seaweed.

IMG_1377

IMG_1368

IMG_1370

So I payed $19 and received $36.86 of deliciously healthy food! I really bought this box to discover new food for my sister but unfortunately she could only try two of the snacks. Also I’m extremely disappointed that I’ve received sample sizes when they clearly state on their website that everything in these boxes will be full sized items. I will be emailing them and I will let you know how they handle the situation. What did you think of this months Urthbox?
