You’ve got mail!!
That is an exciting phrase for an 11 year old to hear. It’s even more exciting to open a box filled with gluten-free treats. Great news! The special child in your life could receive an awesome box filled with gluten-free goodies every month!
American Gluten Free launched its Kids Club Box this summer and Nathan was thrilled to receive the first two boxes. Each box includes eight snacks along with a baking mix or pantry item (pasta, cereal, etc.). These kid-friendly boxes are certified gluten free and celiac safe. All products are also free of dairy and peanuts.
The July box included the following items:
King Authur-GF Brownie Mix
Pop Chips-Sea Salt Crisps
JJ’s Sweets-Original Cocomels
Aleia’s-Almond Horn Cookies
Freeyumm-Double Chocolate Chip Cookie
Made Good-Chocolate Chip Granola Minis
RW Garcia-Hummus & Red Bell Pepper Tortilla Chips
Barnana-Apple Cinnamon Bites
Nathan received the July box the day before we left for gluten-free camp in Michigan, so he decided to pack the box in his carry-on bag to ensure safe snacks on the plane and at airports. I’m so glad he had it because gluten-free snacks were really hard to find at MEM, MDW and GRR airports.
The Pop Chips, Made Good Granola Minis and Schar Honeygrams were perfect airplane snacks. He wasn’t upset at all when I declined the airline’s pretzels and peanuts (yes, the peanuts contain wheat) from the flight attendant because he had his own new snacks.
He was especially excited about the King Authur Gluten Free Brownie Mix, but I just didn’t have time to bake before the trip. We left that at home and baked brownies when we returned. He loved the brownies! I would definitely purchase that mix again.
Nathan’s dad may or may not have eaten most of the JJ’s Sweets Original Cocomels—even though the box said “for kids only…PARENTS KEEP OUT!” I think Nathan was too distracted by the aroma of the fresh-baked brownies to notice that something was missing from his box.
The American Gluten Free Kids Club Box changes each month and is filled with new products to try. Be sure to check out the website to see what will be in next month’s box. It is great to have a selection of new snacks to try each month. It encourages Nathan to try new things and lets me know which ones he really likes or doesn’t like so I know what to purchase.
Since Nathan had already received one Kids Club Box, he gasped with excitement when the second box was delivered to the front door. He wanted to open it all by himself, but as the child of a blogger, he knew he couldn’t eat anything until I took a picture!
The August box was filled with more great products:
Kinnikinnick - K-Kritters Chocolate Animal Cookies
Angie's - Sweet & Salty Popcorn
Jessica's Natural Foods - Chocolate Cake Mix
The YES Bar - Strawberry Coconut Bar
The Greater Knead - Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Chips
Nutty Goodness - Nana Rama Fruit & Nut Bites
Pure Organic - Fruit & Veggie Strips
Brother's - Dried Apple Slices
Rise Buddy - BBQ Rice Crackers
My chocoholic son quickly removed the chocolate cake mix and chocolate animal cookies from the box and hugged them. I haven’t had time to bake the cake yet, but his sister’s birthday is this week and I plan to use the Jessica’s Natural Foods mix for her birthday cake. The other items will be great treats to include in his lunchbox. I may have already opened his Angie’s Sweet & Salty Popcorn and it may have been delicious! Maybe he won’t question why it is in a sandwich bag in his lunchbox instead of the sealed bag it arrived in.
The September box ships on August 18, so visit www.americanglutenfree.com for pricing and ordering information. You can buy a one-time box or a subscription that automatically renews.
