October 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. Each month Taste Guru sends out a box of 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 $20 to $24 a month depending on which plan you sign up for. All plans include shipping.

Why is there such a gap between reviews? I had signed up for a 6 month plan back in May. I received a box in May and a box in June then nothing. I sent an email and was told there was a shipping mistake and I would definitely receive a box in July. July came and went as did August. I sent another email and was told I would definitely get the rest of my boxes starting in October. So here it is, the October box.

I also noticed they changed their logo and packaging. Maybe this is a good sign of things to come.

Price: $24 a month with discounts for 3, 6 and 12 month plans. 

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:

Value: The last two boxes I received in May & June had terrible values. I heard they changed things up and the value and assortment of products will be improved.

New logo and packaging. 

October Taste Guru Box - the box was full!

Fan Favorite Bonus Item

(2) Dave's Homemade Sweet & Sassy Smokehouse Rub. Value = $6.19/ea.

The total value of this box is $35.72. I would say that yes, Taste Guru really stepped it up. I'm so glad they listened to their customers and made a positive change. This box had some items I've tried and enjoy and some new items I'm excited to try. I've tried the Saffron Road chickpeas before and they were actually pretty tasty. I like the little single serving size bags of penne pasta, it tastes all the guess work out of measuring. The bags of Dave's rub look delicious. Speaking of delicious I think I'm going to make the crab and shrimp cakes recipe that was sent.

Verdict: This box is great in product and value. I have 3 more boxes coming and now I'm excited again about receiving them.
