We have our first Gluten Free Subscription Box from Australian Gluten Free Life for 2018. This January box is pretty impressive and has a good balance of snack items and items that you can use later. If you have no idea what I am talking about you can check out my previous AGFL boxes or visit www.agfl.com.au directly. As always I have no connection with AGFL and purchase this box of my own money. Now let’s get into the goodies.
Vege Deli Crisps
Vege is a brand that I know well, although I can’t say I have tried the Hummus Lemon Sesame crisps before. If you have been a long time reader, you’d know that I did a recipe for Vege Deli Crisps back in 2016. This recipe utilized the crisps as a crumbing on my Tumeric and Cheese Chicken Schnitzel. I haven’t seen the 20g packs in stores, but the 100g pack will cost you $4.99. With a bit of math, I can estimate that the 20g pack will cost you around $1.
The next item is the Slim Secrets Mintabolism Boot bar. These are really handy if you need a snack and come in a few different gluten free flavours. I don’t believe all of them are gluten free though so be sure to double check the label. The 40g typically costs you $3 at Woolworths but recently was on sale for half price.
Melinda’s GFG – Lower Carb Flour
I got to try Melinda’s lower carb flour when it first came out. I have a review of the whole range featured here. The flour will cost you $8.90 from their online store. Since I already have and use this flour, I have decided that I’ll throw it into my giveaway box. This giveaway is to celebrate reaching 500 newsletter subscribers. Since it is to celebrate my subscribers, only those who have subscribed will be able to enter. I’ll send all the details this afternoon in our weekly newsletter.
The Chocolate Yogi
One of the great snack items from this box was the Oscar from The Chocolate Yogi. These are “vegan chocolate that can change the world.” Aside from the Oscar bar, they also have larger flavoured blocks. They claim all are free from gluten, cane sugar and soy on top of being vegan. Priced at $1.75 per bar, they come in Mylk, Mylk Caramel (limited edition) and Whyte. Typical of raw and vegan chocolate this has strong bitter notes and a coconut flavour. I found it enjoyable however, it won’t be to everyones tastes.
Apple cider vinegar can be handy in so many ways. I love to use it as an egg replacer, like in my Cookies and Cream Cupcakes. I was pretty excited to get a new bottle in this months box. Again you’ll notice that the brand Lotus Pantry is a returning favourite in the gluten free subscription box. This large bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar will set you back around $11.65.
The final item in the box from Sandhurst, definitely came as a bit of a shock. I have never had a ‘fresh’ item in the box before. Ok, so sun-dried tomatoes aren’t exactly fresh but I think you know where I am coming from. Thankfully I adore sun-dried tomatoes, thanks to my mum. The sun-dried tomatoes are featured in the months’ recipe. The recipe is a sun-dried tomato focaccia. Funnily enough, I have a recipe for focaccia as well, it takes some tricks from the Gourmet Cooking School class that I attended and mixes it with my own ideas. I think I might post it soon! The 125g packet will cost you $3.10 at Woolworths.
The total for this box is roughly $29.40. I honestly feel like the 20g Vege crisps will be more than $1 which would bump this higher again. Furthermore, I pay $25 a month including shipping on my 6-month subscription so this box was definitely worth it. I hope you enjoyed this insight into the Gluten Free Subscription box.
