Holy smokes, y’all. I’ve been seriously neglecting the blog lately. I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last post! That makes me incredibly sad, but life has been way too busy lately. I am finally finding time only because I’m in a hotel room, ALL BY MYSELF. As a mom, when the heck does that happen?! I’m away on a work event, and selfishly loving having a quiet evening to myself. Between Noah’s birthday, Noah catching the flu for a week, working a TON, getting more Etsy orders, I have been packed. I feel like I haven’t spent any time with David, and thus the blog has fallen to the way side. But, I have had something I’ve been soo anxious to share with you guys – a review of something I’m super excited about…the new gr8 box! A monthly subscription box totally free of the Top 8 allergens, and even manufactured in dedicated Top 8 free facilities. Nothing makes an allergy mama happier.
When it comes to finding new allergy friendly snacks for Noah, it’s always a struggle. We have our standard “go-to” brands that we trust, but anything new can be intimidating, and downright scary. It involves looking at the brand’s website, potentially calling manufacturers, and reading the label 100 times over. There isn’t much I hate more than spending a fortune on new snacks only to have Noah hate them, and it be a total waste. Hence, my love for gr8 box!
This monthly subscription box comes packed with new, completely safe snacks for Noah. It allows us to discover new brands that might not be available in our area, and try samples of a variety of new items without breaking the bank. It’s a complete win, and I for one am hooked. Our first box was delivered so quickly, and it actually came on Noah’s birthday so we treated it just like another present, and he was totally thrilled! The majority of the items were completely new to us, and downright delicious. An Enjoy Life cookie, and packs of Sunbutter were included, which we eat all the time (and obviously love). But, everything else was a totally new brand to us! A whole box of Free Yumm granola bars was included, which blew our socks off. They were truly amazingggg, and we can’t wait to order more of their products. Additionally, there was Pur Gum, Just Fruit Bars, and Yum Earth Sour Beans. Noah was a huge fan of literally everything (and coming from an incredibly picky kid, this was huge!), which makes for one happy mama.
The box is $19.99 plus $5 shipping and handling, which given everything we received was totally worth it in my mind! If you think about ordering all of these products from the internet because they aren’t sold locally, and paying individual shipping, etc. this becomes a total steal. Now we know what products we absolutely love, and will feel totally confident ordering in the future. I for one cannot believe I didn’t think of this allergy free subscription box first, because it’s truly genius. But, I am so glad Terri Jordan from gr8 box did, and I hope it just continues to grow. I can’t wait to see what comes in the next month’s box!!
