A Box of Gluten Free Goodies from Crate of Nothing
Got a GF friend and not sure what to buy them for their birthday? Fed up with the bland selection of gluten free foods in your local grocery store? Cheesed off with the weather and want to treat yourself, just because? Yes, to any of the above? Then you need a Crate of Nothing.
So what’s the deal? Well, every month, on the first of the month, the good chaps at Crate of Nothing send a box of handpicked gluten free goodies from artisan bakers and chefs right to your door, for a mere £20 including delivery. Or you can buy a one off box for £22.50. What’s more there’s a gluten free/dairy free option too.
So what do you get? It’s a surprise. And obviously the contents differ each month.
But our crate had:
- Apple and pear bar by Braw
- Lemon drizzle cake by Incognito
- A lime and coconut macaroon by Honeyrose
- A vitality muffin from Nom Nom
- Lemon cake pot by Bakes Just 4U
- Gingerbread man by Steph’s Kitchen
- Coconut and strawberry porridge pot from Biz Oz Oat
- Moroccan style vegetable tagine from Illumi
So far, so yummy. But what was really cool about our crate was that it also contained all the ingredients needed to make a whole batch of chocolate brownies. Yes, really. Flour, baking powder, chocolate drops and cocoa powder all perfectly weighed out. So all you have to do is follow the handy recipe card that comes with it and add eggs and dairy free margarine; easy enough to do even for a reluctant cook like me. And if I may say so myself, the results were fantastic. Slightly more chocolate cake than chocolate brownie but no one complained and they were woofed down by the guys and gals in the office.
What we like about Crate of Nothing is that all the products are really brilliant (especially the vitality muffin) and at £22.50 pretty good value. Delivery is free in the UK too.
