What’s Inside a Gluten Free Box of Great Kids Healthy Snacks?

Great Kids Healthy Snacks #GlutenFree Subscription Box - December

In late December, I received my first Great Kids Healthy Snacks subscription box, and upon opening, was extremely impressed by the variety of edibles. I love having options, and this box does not disappoint. I must admit, I did not purchase Great Kids Healthy Snacks for a child, but did so for myself because I am constantly on the lookout for healthy snacks. And with the exception of just a few items, like the Dr. Pops all-natural Zinc + Vitamin C fruit-flavored lollipops (which I ate too), the majority of the box is filled with snacks that both kids and adults will enjoy.

One thing that I’ve been asked when people see the above photo: ‘is everything shown here ‘gluten free,’ and my answer is ‘yes!’ Whether you gravitate towards these types of snacks to satisfy dietary or medical restrictions or to simply snack healthy, this box is a winner!

Items in the Great Kids Healthy Snacks Subscription Box

Snack Brands I Was Introduced to in the Great Kids Healthy Snacks Box

The December Great Kids Healthy Snacks Box introduced me to a range of snack brands that I was unfamiliar with: Matt’s Munchies, Hippeas, Modern Oats, Chosen Foods, Halfpops, This Kid Saves Lives, SolSimple, B-Jammin, Bumble Bar, OneBar, and mysupersnack.

My Top-Five Favorite Snacks in the December Great Kids Healthy Snacks Box

Peeled Snacks Paradise Found Dried Fruit - Pineapple Banana and Mango

1. Peeled Snacks Paradise Found

Highlights: Non-GMO Verified; Organic; No Sugar Added

I love dried mango from Peeled Snacks, and have purchased a 12-pack from Amazon.com before. I didn’t know this company has a tropical fruit mix, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a nicely-sized 3.5-ounce pouch that contains dried organic pineapple and mango (and banana, which I’m not too fond of but thankfully, there wasn’t an overwhelming amount of it).  I also appreciate that there is no sugar added because I can’t tell you how extremely annoying it is when companies add sweeteners to dried fruit…I feel it’s completely unnecessary. This bag contained a generous amount of dried mango, and smelled intoxicating when I opened the pouch.

Oloves Basil and Garlic Olives in a Pouch

2. Oloves (Basil & Garlic)

Highlights: Vegan; Lunchbox-Friendly; Low-Calorie

The 1.1-ounce packet of natural green pitted olives contains two servings, where the entire packet adds up to 50 calories. There are no pits, although there is a warning that there is the possibility of stones/pits being present (but not on purpose). Once opened, refrigerate if you don’t inhale all the olives at once, and consume within 48 hours. I’ve tried plain Oloves before at a nature food fair, but not this particular flavor, which has a slightly tangy taste.

SolSimple Organic Sun Mix of Dried Fruit

3. SolSimple Organic Sun Mix

Highlights: Unsweetened; Certified Organic; Fair-Trade

I’ve never had ‘solar dried’ fruit before, and this blend of dried banana, mango, pineapple and dragon fruit is unique. Nothing is added to the dried fruit, and once again, I appreciate that in a product. Visually, I can’t eat dried banana, and wish there was less of it in the pouch, but it was nice to try out dried dragonfruit for the first time, which has a berry-like taste. Also, if you purchase SolSimple Sun Mix, you are supporting a company that embraces sustainable farming practices.

Chosen Foods Bites with Chia – Vanilla

4. Chosen Foods Bites with Chia! – Vanilla

Highlights: Non-GMO Verified; High Fiber; Protein-Filled

I think the small, pop-in-your-mouth Chosen Foods vanilla chia bites make an ideal healthy movie theater snack. The bite-size squares explode in your mouth with a wave of nuttiness and crunch. The chia bites offers just a touch of vanilla sweetness, which I find refreshing in a snack like this.

OneBar Fruit Bar

5. OneBar – Cherry

Highlights: Vegan; Soy-Free; No Added Sugar; Fair Trade Friendly

I unfortunately don’t have a photo for this snack because I put it in my purse one day, and ate it in the car for a quick pick-me-up, but I’ve added a photo from the company website. Each OneBar contains one ‘pure’ serving of fruit (as well as chicory root, pear, and fruit of the Baobab tree) and it did not disappoint. I loved it, and it was filling.

Honorable Oddball Mention: Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs – Maple Haze

Hippeas Maple Haze Organic Chickpea Puffs

Highlights: Organic; Non-GMO; Vegan

I’m an overall fan of chickpea-made food and snacks, but I’m not sure everyone will enjoy these puffs like I did. There is this odd marriage between a slight sweetness (best described as maple-like) and smokiness (natural smoke flavor) that works for me. The texture is satisfyingly crunchy, and you get 3 grams of fiber in a 1-ounce serving.

Matts Munchies - Apple liscious

A Gluten-Free Brand I Will Probably Purchase Soon

 

One of the reasons I enjoy healthy snack subscriptions, like Great Kids Healthy Snacks Box, is because I learn about brands I’d like to incorporate into my diet on a more consistent basis without wasting money just to ‘test’ something out that I might not like.

This time around, I’ve decided to keep an eye out for Matt’s Munchies in the grocery store, and if I can’t locate it, there is always Amazon, which sells a variety pack of flavors. I’m a huge fan of fruit strips, fruit leather and dried fruit snacks, and this brand has a lot of flavors.

Just some of the flavors to consider: Mango Apricot, Tropical Punch, Island Mango, Banana Coconut, Mango Ginger, Mango Acai, Grape, Banana, and Mango. Matt’s Munchies is a premium organic fruit snack that peels away from its packaging, similar to a fruit roll-up.

    I’m learning so much about Gluten-Free. I host a ladies group and 2 of the ladies in it our gluten-free and I make dinner twice a month for everyone. It made me so nervous because I was worried if I could find things everyone would like. So far we’ve had tacos and Frito Chili Pie. I have to do it again next Thursday night.

  30. Rachel says:

    Wow! I want to try them all even though we don’t need to go gluten free. I had no idea there were soooo many choices.

  31. What a great collection of items. Gluten free products have come a long way in the last few years and are growing in popularity. I dont ‘need’ gluten free but will always give a product a try if I see one as I figure why no. There are so many here that you list that look so good. I agree with your closing comment that the snack boxes are an idea way to be introduced to new products – as is your post so thanks!

  32. So many delicious goodies to try. I love boxes like these because they introduce you to new brands and new snacks to try. I’m always looking for new healthy options.

  33. What great options. I don’t have celiac, but I am still a bit intolerant with gluten, so it’s always good to have resources and options. I really want to try those Peeled Snacks mangoes. LOVE mango. Thanks for such a thorough review. Definitely going to check it out.

    Lots of people have an intolerance for gluten, so this pack would be a super idea. I’ve never done subscription plans before but this one looks great. Some of these look super tasty. I’d love the look of the one bars and chia bites. I’ve been cooking with chia seeds lately and love them.
