Urthbox is a subscription service that sends you, on a monthly basis, a ton of trial-sized snack items to sample. The company offers gluten-free exclusive boxes too – good news for us GFers!
Before I tell you more about what was in my Urthbox and share my honest Urthbox review, I want to first mention that the company was kind enough to send me one of its gluten-free subscription boxes to try. I also joined Urthbox’s affiliate program and this post includes affiliate links. See my disclosures here.
Upon arrival, I was so excited to see this box packed full of goodies. It was exciting – like a kid must feel on Christmas Day opening a surprise present. I could not believe how many items were packed in this tiny box – wow – Urthbox, you should give your packing team a raise!
I only recognized a few of the products in the box (Chia Squeezes); everything else was new to me.
There were sample sizes of BOPs potato chips, granola from Made Good, snack bites from Gorilly Goods and Frontier Bites, bars from Goodkid, along with cookies, drink flavoring, granola bars, boxed water, and more.
I took a bite of most of the items that I could bear (sorry, some things just aren’t that appetizing to me like sour cream flavored potato chips), the rest I offered up to my family and friends.
There are many reasons I enjoyed my Urthbox experience:
(1) I got to try new products. My Urthbox was mostly filled with products I hadn’t heard of. I like to be in the know when it comes to gluten-free goodies, so Urthbox helped me discover new things and even some of the latest products to hit the market. Many companies will launch their new products and promote them in the Urthbox.
(2) It’s fun. You cannot deny the fun factor. Urthbox is like sending yourself a little present every month! We have a lot of things that are off limits to us gluten-free folk, so it’s nice to have a box come to my doorstep filled with everything I CAN eat!!
(3) You can save money. Yes, I know the Urthbox costs money, but just think of all the GF products you’ve bought and tossed because they were disgusting. You know exactly what I’m talking about if you’re gluten-free. Urthbox will save you from those misfortunate investments!
There are a few things I didn’t love:
(1) The box was filled with a lot of coconut products. I’m glad each month is different, because coconut is not my thang!
(2) I would love to see cooler, name brand products too. Like a box of GF noodles or cool seasonings. A few items were a bit junky and I’m pretty sure the world doesn’t need anymore granola bars – oh well.
Overall, I enjoyed my Urthbox experience so much that I’ve become a monthly subscriber.

I hope you enjoyed my Urthbox review – oh, and it makes a fantastic gift for the gluten-free friend in your life. I included an Urthbox subscription in my gluten-free holiday gift-guide and my Mother’s Day gift guide.
