A Savorfull October!

We liked our Savorfull review box so much last month that I signed up for more! Little Z was so excited to get a box full of "safe" goodies, I couldn't get any good photos! She was busy tossing the box into the air and  hugging it and acting crazed with excitement... 
She also may have been promised some cookies that I knew were in there from a little sneak peek I got from a friend who gets her box a few days before me!

October Savorfull Box

Savorfull is a monthly subscription service that sends you a carefully selected assortment of trial sized and full-sized allergy-friendly food items (usually peanut-free and/or dairy-free and also gluten/wheat-free.)
While we don't have any food allergies to worry about, the nut-free items would be safe to take to her nut-free preschool for her personal snack, or the boxes often include "ingredients" (flour, baking mixes, etc) I could use to whip up a class snack. [And by "whip up" I mean "flub in some way."]
Everything they choose is artificial-free too, which is what sold me on trying them out!
The Savorfull box is only $15 per month, with no added shipping charge! That's a fantastic deal, since most sampler boxes I've tried are either smaller, more expensive, or tack on a monthly shipping charge as well!
Are you interested in trying them out too?
Use code BITINGMYHAND for $1 off 1 month, $9 off 6 months, or $20 off a 1-year subscription!

Here's what we've done so far with this month's bounty:
I'm scared to try the Mrs. Glee's Noodles. Apparently if I wander off and get distracted, they'll turn into mush. So 100% chance of failure then, for me! (I've often come back to find I'd left rice boiling on High for an hour. Oops.) 
Maybe I can figure out a way to microwave them... Oh look! Right there on their website! Gleep! Off to make some Squash Mac N Cheese sauce... 

The love Cookies didn't last five minutes past the "photo shoot." I can't tell you definitively if they were tasty or not. But I have it on good authority that they were "deNISHous!"

I melted down my boomCHOCOboom bar and dipped some organic strawberries for a fun lunch treat
Some for her...

Aaaand some for me!
(Don't worry. There was leftover chocolate. Since I'd melted it in a reusable lidded container, I just saved the rest for another time! YUM!)

Some of the Sticks and Twigs Pretzels went in a snack for preschool, but she apparently wasn't a fan. Oh well. I liked them okay.

I'm not a big coffee drinker, so the Vita Perk, while an interesting idea, stumped me for a while. Until I decided to try it in milk. I like vanilla milk (or did, before we stopped eating artificial flavors, like the ones in my Torani's syrups. *sigh* I'm not a fan of the alcohol flavor in the natural vanilla, when not in baked goods. Or chocolate.) So I tried the packet of Vanilla Vita Perk (natural flavors!) in roughly 12-ounces of milk.
Well. Mixed results. It tasted great. No complaints there. But it didn't dissolve well at all. So must need hot beverages. I shall try the next ones (Mocha, Hazelnut, and Unflavored) in hot cocoa! Yum! 
The clumps at the very bottom weren't quite as tasty as the rest of the milk had been though. *shudder*

*Disclaimer: I am a Savorfull Ambassador (Ambassadress?) and received my Savorfull box for free. However I loved their box enough that I ended up subscribing before they invited me. So you know I'm telling the truth when I endorse their service! I liked it enough to pay for it!
