October Savorfull Box Review

It's a Savorfull Day in the neighborhood!
When our box came we were so excited! Savorfull sends you a monthly box filled with allergy free foods every month. We love that because Eliana is allergic to peanuts and some nuts and it isn't easy to get a monthly box that is allergy friendly.  It is nice and fun to be able to sample and test foods and snacks we might not have known about otherwise :) If you want more information on Savorfull you can read more in my previous post as well.


Eliana has been loving this whole MY box thing. She knows that nothing inside will have peanuts or nuts! And she can't wait to open to see what inside :)

 So what came to my doorstep?
So before I go into what was inside the Savorfull October Box, let's talk about what was surrounding the goodies. The packaging.  I had said in my previous post that Eliana loved the packaging... She literally played with it all day! So this time around we made a cute Halloween Ghost Craft:
All you need is some of the Savorfull packaging, glue and black construction paper. I drew an outline of a ghost on the paper for Eliana.  She used glue and glued the packaging within the ghost outline.  She drew the face details on another piece of paper and I cut them out for her (we lost her kid scissors!) Then she glued the ghost's face on top. It was super easy to make and she loved it :) I think its a cute Savorfull ghost :)

 Now back to what was inside the October Savorfull Box:
Like our previous box we got tons of pamphlets and information on living with allergies as well. I love the extra information, and we some coupons for Enjoy Life Foods! Score! :)
Here is what was inside our October Savorfull Box:

Mrs. Glee's Gluten Free Elbows -- Gluten Free Pasta. It came with simple directions on the package, perfect for the sample size. For anyone who is eating gluten free for diet purposes, or because of Celiac disease these would be great sub for pasta!

VitaPerk -- a blend of vitamins, minerals and natural flavors to mix into your cup of coffee. It is meant to to be added to your fresh coffee.. Well since I don't drink hot coffee (I'm a cold coffee drinker) I added some of the unflavored to my hot chocolate. It wasn't that bad, but I'm probably sure it tastes better in coffee. The natural flavoring adds some sweetness, so it made my hot chocolate sweeter. I may just break my cold coffee habit for one day and try the other flavors, especially since I love mocha.

Mary's Gone Crackers Organic Sea Salt Sticks & Twigs -- Gluten free, dairy free and nut free pretzel sticks. These were delicious. I loved them! I wish there had been more of them!

Mary`s Gone Crackers Double Chocolate Cookie -- A gluten free, dairy free and nut free cookie. Eliana loved this cookie! I didn't even get a bite it was gone before I knew it lol

Enjoy Life Foods Boom Choco Boom Dark Chocolate Bar -- Like I mentioned before we love Enjoy Life brand. Everything is free of the top 8 allergens and made in top 8 allergen free facilities.  Once I see their name, I can rest easy. I know it is safe. And this chocolate bar was DELISH! I would love to say I shared it.. but I didn't. I hid in my room and ate it all by myself..

Here are some of the snacks we put together from the box:
Milk and Cookies
Horizon Organic Milk and a Mary's Gone Crackers Double Chocolate Cookie

Silly Spider Snack
Spider sandwich cut with a circle cookie cutter. You can use your desired bread and sandwich fillings. We used Pumpkin Spice Swirl Bread and some cheese. Spider Legs are Mary's Gone Crackers Pretzel Sticks. Edible candy eyes and a red bell pepper mouth are added on top. Now this is a spider. It has 8 legs. I counted this time! (Unlike in my Bug Lunch LOL)

The thing that is fun about Savorfull is that you can get anything from sample size to full size products. Last month the box had full sized products.  This was a great sample sized box. It gave some good samples of products that are allergy friendly. The only problem, in my opinion, is that this box just went wayyyy to quick!  We look forward to seeing what is in November's box :)
