Taste Guru May 2013 review
What’s the deal?
Taste Guru is a monthly subscription service that provides full size gluten-free snacks for $24.99 per month. The service takes the guesswork out of snack purchases when you are avoiding gluten ingredients.
What’s in the box?
Coco Café Coconut water/milk/ espresso beverage 11.1 fluid ounces $1.99
I love coffee so this treat was particularly intriguing. I also really like coconut water. I never thought of combining the two flavors, but it works.
Rocky Mountain Popcorn Factory White Cheddar and Cinnamon Sugar popcorn 1.7 ounces each $1.41 each
The box included 2 bags of popcorn and a coupon code for 30% an order from Rocky Mountain Popcorn Factory’s website. I enjoyed the popcorn and was looking forward to ordering a replacement of the Cinnamon Sugar plus the kettle corn and jalapeno flavor but the company’s website is down due to the devastating tornado in Oklahoma last week. I’m going to keep an eye on the website and definitely place an order when they are back in business.
La Veneziane penne corn pasta $4.39
I haven’t tried corn pasta previously so I was excited to give it a spin. The box included a recipe for a cold Cantonese chicken salad that used the penne. I didn’t have all of the ingredients on hand for the recipe so I used the pasta as a side dish with sauce. It was more toothsome than rice pasta and held up well when sauced. I would buy the full size product.
Canyon Oats single serve oatmeal with brown sugar $3.00
Oats can sometimes become contaminated with gluten ingredients so it’s important to make sure that the oats are Certified Gluten Free. This oatmeal came in a handy to-go cup and was nicely sweetened with brown sugar.
Glutino Strawberry Gluten Free Toaster Pastry $5.69
Ah, the gluten-free holy grail: the Glutino Toaster Pastry. None of my local grocery stores have started carrying this particular Glutino product. I saw on twitter that these were going to be included in this box and I was super excited to try it out. They. Are. Amazing. I’m not sharing these with anyone. They are mine!
Total retail value of the May 2013 box: $28.07
This was an awesome array of items. I am pleased with everything I tried. All of the products were peanut-free as well so that was an added bonus! I can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s box from Taste Guru!
Disclosure: I bought this.
