Everywhere you look on social media, people are talking about subscription boxes and the products that they receive on a monthly basis. These boxes vary from fashion to food, beauty products to toiletries and wherever there's a demand, there's a subscription box. Foodie subscription boxes are the latest trend on the market, coining in on those with specialist diets or foodies looking to discover new brands that are often difficult to acquire. Graze and Degustabox were the first major players in the foodie subscription market in the UK but as their popularity exceeded, more companies were eager to join the bandwagon. The latest foodie subscription box on the scene is Snackly, a subscription box dedicated to those following a gluten free diet. This box costs only £7.95 per month and promises a selection of goodies that are gluten free and made in the UK.
This months box was an absolute treat with Anglesey Sea Salted Chocolate, a Salted Caramel Brownie, a Nothing But Apple and Fig snack, Lemon butter Shortbread, Easy Bean Chickpea Crispbread and two large pieces of Peace of Cake Biscotti. I'm not a coeliac and I don't have to lead a gluten free diet, but I do like to experiment with my food and have been told that a gluten free diet could help me with a few of my health problems. I have always thought that gluten free bread, biscuits and dough tasted rather bland but these Snackly* boxes are anything but bland.Full of flavour, naughty but nice, these Snackly boxes have everything you want for a little monthly subscription box and they are far from the word boring, something that gluten free food is often associated with.
My favourite snacks this month had to be the Lemon Butter Shortbread that were melt in the mouth yummy, with just the right amount of lemon and the chickpea crisp breads that were light but with such intense flavour, they left me wanting more. I didn't really like the Nothing But apple snack as it tasted far too sweet for my liking, but the oozey, gooey, scrumptious brownie in the box was definitely my cup of tea. This box had five items and out of these I only disliked one. Would I buy again? Definitely. This box is perfect for those looking for different gluten free items to try and for foodies with a sense of culinary adventure. Unlike a lot of foodie subscription boxes that are starting to get boring, this one just seems to be getting better each time.
