November Savorfull Box Review

It's a Savorfull day in the neighborhood!
We were very excited to see our November box and we really enjoyed this month!! Every month Savorfull sends you a box, delivered to your doorstep, filled with allergy friendly foods.  Since Eliana is allergic to peanuts and some nuts we have enjoyed tasting and testing samples of new allergy friendly foods.  We have also been introduced to new products and brands too! To read more on Savorfull you can read my first review.

So what came to my doorstep?
As always, I love the recipes, pamphlets and allergy information we receive with each box. We also love the packaging! Eliana loves to use it while making crafts.  This time we actually used the stuffing to fill a box we were sending via mail! I like repurposing the packaging rather than just throwing it out :) 
Here is what was inside the November Savorfull Box:

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix --While we do not have any gluten or wheat allergies in our house, I am always up to try new things! Included was a recipe from MOMables for allergy friendly Cinnamon Roll Bites to make with the Pizza Crust mix! However there is a tree nut facility warning on the label.  So if you or a family member have a serious nut allergy you would not be able to eat this-- But don't worry--my girl Keeley has you covered. Check out her post to see how to make your cinnamon rolls top 8 allergen free :)

Skinny Pop Popcorn -- All natural, cholesterol free, zero trans fat, preservative free, dairy free, peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free, non GMO AND a good source of fiber! You can't go wrong with this popcorn. And while it was very yummy by itself we decided to jazz it up and made a Peanut Free Popcorn Mix (see below)

Lucy's Gluten Free Cookies -- This box of cookies was Chocolate Merry Mint. OMG. DELICIOUS. I have nothing else to say. They were so good it was very hard to not eat them all in one sitting. We rationed them out and ate them throughout the month. They were super yummy! You could use them in a recipe... or just eat them straight out of the box like we did :)

Enjoy Life Foods Sunbutter Crunch Chewy Bar -- All Enjoy Life Foods are top 8 allergen free, made in a top 8 allergen free facility.  That extra assurance is always something I enjoy. Eliana already loves their Coco Loco bar, so she actually wanted a Coco Loco bar (from our stash), instead of the Sunbutter bar.  By default I got to eat this bar and I thought it was yummy! 

 Our Cinnamon Roll Bites:
I loved how MOMables provided a recipe with this months box! I wouldn't have thought to make cinnamon roll bites with pizza crust dough, so I love how creative that recipe was. Now I love to bake, but don't usually bake with yeast. My baking goes to cakes, cookies and cupcakes. So this was a different experience for me since I couldn't  remember the last time I worked with yeast. With the first batch I found the bites to be too dense for my liking.  However the next batch came out less dense, so I'm guessing I did something wrong :) Eliana loved them though--so they ended up being just for her, which made her super happy :)

Our Peanut Free Popcorn Mix, using the Skinny Pop Popcorn:
To make this Peanut Free Popcorn Mix We took the whole bag of Skinny Pop Popcorn and put it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I added a handful of pretzel sticks, broken up.  Our pretzel sticks are peanut free and nut free, but feel free to sub a gluten free version (like these Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks from the October Savorfull box). 

I took a handful of Enjoy Life Foods mini chocolate chips (top 8 allergen free) and melted them in the microwave.  Drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn mix and allow to dry.  Break up the popcorn mix and store in an airtight container. It will last you one day--at most...from our experience ;)

Overall we loved this month.  We were introduced to new allergy friendly products that we hadn't tried before-- and we ended up really enjoying them! That is what makes Savorfull so much fun for us. We really do enjoy the surprise of what will come each month, and trying out new products and finding new favorite snacks and foods :) This month I baked with yeast! Savorfull keeps me on my toes :) I also love the variety each month.  Sometimes you get a sample sized product, sometimes a full size product.
