Review and Giveaway: G-Free Foodie Box Club!

Update: This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Jeanene! Congrats, Jeanene.

Did you know there was a foodie club, made just for those of us on a gluten-free diet?

There is!

Over at G-Free Foodie, in addition to learning all sorts of things about a gluten-free diet, including recipes and gluten-free restaurants, there is a monthly box club available.

If you’ve been a bit of a self-described foodie even before going gluten-free, or if you just love to try new things, this box club is for you. For $29/month, you receive a box full of delicious gluten-free (and dairy-free, if you specify) artisanal treats. I was ecstatic to receive my box, which included some plantain chips, a scone mix, some flavored cashews, spearmint jam, crispy onion rings, some herbal tea, a tea infuser, and a basting brush. I’ve tried most everything (have yet to make the scones), and it’s all been excellent. I can’t wait for another.

What’s better – that $29 for the box is a bargain, as these products, priced individually, would likely total more than that price. Receiving this box also gets you out of your comfort zone and trying new things. The box makes a great gift for a gluten-free foodie friend or family member, or even for yourself.

I’m giving a G-Free Foodie Box to one lucky reader! If you leave me a comment below telling me a delicious gluten-free foodie gift idea, you’ll be entered. That’s it!

All U.S. residents 18 years of age and over are eligible. The drawing will end and a winner will be chosen on Friday, December 20, 2013 at 11:59pm.

Good luck to all!

  1. I used to love making those cookie mix in jars (like this: http://thecreativejunkie.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/cookie_mix_jar_8.jpg). I would love to make GF versions this year to give to my fellow GF bakers :D

  2. I have a newly diagnosed friend and am making her a snack box with all my favorite treats so that she doesnt feel deprived at work. Stuff like pretzels, chips, candy, and of course, donuts.

  3. We sent our coach (Marshall White) a box of gluten free cookies and pop tarts from glutino when he was complaining about finding no gf treats!

    Not really super exciting…we usually just send people pics of what to buy in stores.

  4. I’ve been making homemade turtles as my dairy free and gluten free dessert for the holidays. Everyone loves them.

  5. My families favorite is GF sugar cookies. These are great for any Holiday, not just Christmas. I got a wonderful recipe out of Living Without Magazine. This box sounds like a lot of fun to try new items. GF and DF (for our youngest.)

  6. One gluten fee and diary free gift idea is spice mixes. One year I made homemade curry powder for our friends and family – so much more fragrant than many store-bought curries.

  7. I love a good goat cheese as a snack. My gluten free friend loves it!

  8. Honestly, I’m more likely to give away a cookbook than to make a foodie gift myself…but if I did it would probably be g-free, dairy-free fudge. My sister just made some to send in a package to family, and it looked amazing! I don’t have her recipe, but here’s one I’ve been wanting to try: http://www.elanaspantry.com/hazelnut-fudge. Alternatively, I’d make paleo nutella, which is sure to be a hit.

  9. What a fabulous idea! That coconut jam looks divine and I’m a big fan of chocolate and lemon too. Now this would be the perfect gift for me. I asked my husband to make me this for Christmas this year. http://paleomg.com/guest-post-hot-cocoa-mason-jar-cakes
    Thanks for the chance!

  10. I like to give (gf) chex mix recipes, there are lots out there and easy to adapt to be gf. And others never realize they are gluten free unless I tell those who need gf!

  11. I read somewhere that the food most missed by gluten intolerant people is pizza. So, give your GF foodie the gift of pizza. Maybe candy cane pizza for the holidays!

  12. Healthy chocolate cookie mix in a jar! Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. It would have to be some of my wonderful tasting cookies (I;m really doing this). They are called: Jeanies Heavenly Treasures Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and same thing but in mix form.
    I have also done GF Homemade Pizza Crust Mix. This is another big hit!

  14. You can’t go wrong with good ol’ (gluten-free) shortbread cookies. I’ve been giving away batches I baked from a recipe posted on Mrs. Paleo a long time ago and everyone loves them.

  15. Brownies are a can’t miss if GF.

  16. I have made gluten free goodie baskets in the past for a few GF friends. I buy a variety of GF treats, split them up in baskets, share and hope we all enjoy the tastiness (I get a piece of the gift to try too)!

  17. I like to make raw truffles w/ organic dried cherries & cocoa nibs. My friends & family gobble them up. Thank you for this giveaway! :-)

  18. I am more than likely going to give a gluten free cookbook. With that said, I would send gluten free brownies so they know how wonderful it can still be GF!

  19. If you could magically find white chocolate that is NOT manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat – that would definitely be a treat!

  20. I’m making gf date nut breads and slow cooker pumpkin butter in jars to give away this Christmas.

  21. Last year I made Elana Amsterdam’s Paleo Fruitcakes to give as gifts. I bet everyone would have loved them. Unfortunately, they were never delivered, because I ate them.

  22. Hands down, my gluten-free pumpkin donut holes! Whoever’s had them never suspects they’re gluten-free. I always get rave reviews!

  23. I’m making mini cheese cakes in a muffin tin using cupcake papers. I use gluten free ginger snap cookies in the bottom for the crust!

  24. I made a big batch of dairy and refined sugar free dry hot cocoa mix and then put it in cute jars as gifts. Super cute Christmas gift for the gf!

  25. Any gluten free baking mix from the XO Baking company sounds good to me! Maybe their brownies with a brownie pan? Yum!
