It’s that time of the month again, today I’ll be reviewing the contents of the May gluten free subscription box. If this is your first time reading about it, read the full run down of the Australian Gluten Free Life box. If you just want to subscribe to the box for yourself, head on over to agfl.com.au. I am not associated with the company and buy these boxes myself. Please direct all questions about the box itself to them.
This box is definitely a winner, it is full of exciting items that I can’t wait to try. With cookies, chocolate and a delicious Bircher muesli, this is the perfect snack box. I was nasally assaulted by the scent of chocolate and orange when I opened the box, that tells me I’m going to enjoy it.
Forage Bircher Muesli
From Forage Cereal we have their gluten free Bircher muesli. Containing the healthiest fruits and nuts, this muesli is high in protein while providing you with fibre benefits. For anyone with allergies, it contains Brown Rice, Coconut, Nuts and Dried Fruits. For the 300g package, we received it costs $11. However, if you are purchasing from their website you’ll need to meet their bundle requirements of 4 300g bags for $44.00.
The smell that had me salivating when I opened the box was the Pumpy Jackson chocolate. Made from non-dairy milk, the chocolate is vegan, has no added sugar or preservatives. Pumpy Jackson doesn’t advertise their product as gluten free on the packaging. It seems they don’t test every batch, however, they have a wonderful note on the back of the product to check the batches for their test results on their website. That way you can be sure that the product you are purchasing is 100% gluten free. I received the Amber Orange flavour. Lucky for me since it is my favourite combination, don’t you remember how much I loved my Jaffa Torte? The Pumpy Jackson chocolates can be purchased from their website online in a two pack for $16.50. That puts our individual bar at $8.25. You can also purchase them in selected IGA supermarkets and health stores.
I love the Cobs brand, from their standard popcorn to their delicious cheddar flavour. Now they are expanding their range to include products like the flavoured hip chips and these new Naked Corn Chips. They come in two flavours, the big cheese – I can tell already I’ll like this one- and By the Sea Salt. Appearance wise they look like a rice cake, however, they contain quinoa, chia and sorghum instead. I’m curious to find out how well they go in place of corn chips in nachos. These are available in independent stores and retail for $3.75. My local IGA stocks them so it may pay off to check your stores as well.
This month our usual bar is from Go Natural and is the walnuts, dates, cashew and chia seeds bar. Sweetened with Australian honey they are great as an on the go snack. You can buy these bars at Coles , the single bar retails for $2.20.
Baked on Bond
You may remember that I spoke about the Baked on Bond cookies back in January. I was surprised to see that we didn’t just get one but a full pack of 5 of their biscuits. Aside from being gluten free, these biscuits are also nut free making them safe for nut-free schools. The biscuits are individually wrapped and easy to pop in your bag for a snack as well. Previously I have tried their Chocolate Chip variety and in the box, I received the ANZAC biscuits. These are available at Woolworths stores and can be purchased for $5.50.
All the products work out to be an estimated $30.70 total which as usual is well worth the cost of the box. For me on their 6 monthly plan at $25 a month, I received $5 worth of products essentially for free. I can’t wait to see how they’ll top this box in June. If you are curious about previous boxes, I have all the reviews here.
