Like any other review I receive, this box of gluten free goodies was eagerly anticipated! It did take a little while to arrive, but I'm sure gfreely has a lot of these review requests since they are a pretty fabulous company.

It arrived and was opened in 2.3 seconds (okay, we'll call it 2 minutes at most) and, I admit, a lot of ooohing and ahhhhing was done by me while going through the box. Each product I took out was a new excitement in and of itself. My mom even got in on the action and we were both talking over each other, 'Look at this,' 'Oh, this is GMO free!' or 'How unique is THIS?'

My box included Crystal Noodle's Mushroom Soup, Dang Toasted Coconut Chips, That's It Cherry and Apple Fruit Bar, Chunks of Energy Squares, Sen Cha Original Green Tea Leaf Mints, Nunes Farms Sweet Chipotle Almonds, and Kay's Naturals Mac & Cheese Protein Puffs.

With anything else, each product was fun to try out and I definitely enjoyed the whole process. There were some obvious winners (almonds and mints) and some not-so-great contenders (mac & cheese puffs). Regardless of my personal opinions on what the box included, it was interesting trying out everything with the different mixes of textures and flavors!

I really like that last line of their description: 'By helping you discover and purchase delicious gluten free products, the gluten free diet can be one that you will enjoy.' Going gluten free can be a very difficult transition, especially in the beginning stages. You think you're going to lose out on all the delicious yet horrible for you foods you crave, but you just have to twist your line of thinking.

With a little more effort and research, you're diet can be as delicious as everything else available; the only difference is it will be healthier and make you feel better, both mentally and physically!

gfreely boxes are available in 1 month, 3 month, or 6 month subscriptions. If you're interested in purchasing a subscription for yourself or for someone as a gift, head HERE for more details.

Sounds like you and your mom had a blast. I used to be a member of a company I won't mention the name, and how I looked forward to their box each month, so I can relate. Great review :-)

Not sure if I would like mac & cheese puffs but can almost bet my kids would have no problem gobbling them up!

We are not gluten free here, but I love that there is a subscription box for those who are. It makes trying new products easy! Thanks for sharing.

Yum and hurray for the green and healthy snacks. This sounds interesting because it's gluten free

Looks like a great selection of goodies! It seems more and more people are going gluten-free, so there will be better options popping up every day. Good to have a chance to try different things out without a major commitment!

Thanks for sharing about this site! I have never heard about it. It looks they have a great selection to choose from.

Thanks for posting about this company! We have an autistic six year old and are trying to incorporate more gluten-free foods and snacks in his diet. I like the idea of having new items show up right at my doorstep. :)

I have a close friend who cannot eat gluten. Despite the variety of foods out there that are gluten-free, it appears in so many foods that it is nice to have more choices. She will love this option! Thanks for the info.
