January Taste Guru box

Do you live a gluten free lifestyle? Or maybe you know someone who is gluten free? Taste Guru is a whole box of food that is gluten free. Taste Guru came about when the co-founder was diagnosed with celiac disease. Many of the gluten free foods they found tasted like cardboard and generally didn't taste very good. Through trial and error they found foods they love and mealtimes became enjoyable again. Each month Taste Guru sends out a box of 7-10 full size gluten free foods that have been tested and reviewed by those who live a gluten free life. The box is shipped monthly and the prices ranges from $25 to $34 a month depending on which plan you sign up for. All plans include shipping.

This box ships to the USA only from Denver, Colorado. 

The good:

Gluten free made easy: This is a great way to try a whole bunch of gluten free foods.

Need a gift: I think this would make a great gift for the gluten free person in your life.

The not so good:

Want more: The products they send can be hard to find but an online store through their website is coming soon.

January Taste Guru Box

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

Popcorn Indiana Drizzled Black & White Kettlecorn. Value = $3.49 - always delicious!

Cooksimple Punjaba Curry Mix. Value = $4.99

Dream Blends Dark Chocolate Drinks. Value = $1.49

Uncle Dougie's Wicked Good No Fry Wing Marinade. Value = $5.00

Schar Parbaked Baguettes. Value = $7.25 - This bread was super good. Even the boyfriend liked it. 

Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal in Espresso Maca Mulberry. Value = $4.20

The total value of this box is $26.42. This box has some many great things in it that I want to try but all of them are high in carbs, except the marinade. Ugh! They included a recipe for cauliflower buffalo wings which sounds fantastic and I happen to have some cauliflower in the fridge. I do want to try the bread because I'm curious about the taste of gluten free bread. The teenager liked the dark chocolate almond milk I buy so I'll let her have this mixed nut drink. The boyfriend eats oatmeal almost every morning but I'm not sure he will like this one. He's a Quaker flavored oatmeal kind of guy. Speaking of him I'm secretly hoping he eats all the popcorn otherwise I might eat it in a moment of weakness. I've had it before and it's delicious!

Verdict: I'm very happy with the Taste Guru boxes. It definitely give me an opportunity to try things I wouldn't normally try.
