Free Gluten Free Samples

February 10, 2018

I searched high and low trying to find gluten free companies that give out free samples of their products.  I wish I could tell you I found tons of gluten free companies that do this, but that would be a lie!  However, what I did find are some less expensive alternatives.  We all know gluten free isn’t cheap.  This can really cause a struggle for those that need to be gluten free due to celiac disease or a gluten intolerance.  I can’t even  tell you how much money I’ve wasted over the years buying gluten free products that I ended up throwing out because they tasted awful.

If you head over to the manufacturers website, you can usually get a coupon for a $1.00 off or so.  Glutino, Enjoy Life, Canyon Bakehouse, Schar….

Now that we’re at the start of a new year, keep an eye out for your local Gluten Free Expo or Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest.  This is the best way to actually sample gluten free products.  Click on the links to see if one is coming to your area.

Are any of you familiar with Katz gluten free products?  They have these really cool sample packs.  For $5.00 they send you 8 individual products so you can try without committing!  For example, they will send you a piece of white bread, a doughnut, a cinnamon roll, a bagel, etc.  Click here to head over there and check it out!  For a small price you can sample several of their products.  I wish other gluten free companies would do the same!

If you know of any gluten free companies offering samples, please drop a line below and share the information!

  1. I am just starting on a gluten free diet, per doctors orders. I would like to sample some things before I put the money into them. If you hear of anything let me know, please.

    1. Absolutely! Gluten free food is expensive. I’ve spent so much money on gluten free food that we ended up throwing away because we didn’t like the taste or texture. I’m not sure where you’re located, but go online and see if there’s a gluten free expo or convention in your area. We have one in Minneapolis every year, usually in May. It’s called Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest. There’s tons of vendors giving out samples of their products. That’s going to be the best way to try some stuff!

  2. Hey. Im a mom with a 7 year old boy that has been dignosed with celiac disease. We are having a hard time finding foods he likes.

    1. Wendy, I completely understand. Sami was young when she was diagnosed too. Finding foods she liked was definitely a battle. Gluten free foods have a different taste and texture and it varies between brands. I have a few recommendations. Wellshire Farms makes a gluten free chicken nugget called Dino Bites. Even my son who doesn’t have Celiac loves those. I’m not sure where you’re located, but if you go on their website you can put in your zip code and find out who sells them. Annie’s makes a good boxed macaroni and cheese, or make your own with gluten free noodles. Barilla makes gluten free noodles that are really good. You can also use the noodles to make your own hamburger helper. You could also try making your own lunchables with meat cheese and crackers. We like the Glutino cheddar crackers. Sandwiches are good too, just toast the bread. We prefer Rudi’s and Udi’s – their in the freezer section. Also, use the bread for grilled cheese sandwiches and BLT’s. Kinnikinnick makes a good frozen pizza crust. Your son could help make his own pizza. Udi’s also makes a good gluten free crust. It’s going to be a lot of trial and error finding the brands he likes. Glutino also makes gluten free pop tarts. King Arthur makes a boxed gluten free muffin mix. You can add whatever you want, blueberries, chocolate chips, or Sami’s favorite maraschino cherries! I hope this helps a little. 🙂
