So Lucky Gifts and A Gluten Free Halloween Giveaway!

While I’ve stopped accepting complimentary gluten free products to review on my website, I recently made an exception when Heather from So Lucky Gifts contacted me with an offer too tempting to refuse.  A gluten free, dairy free Halloween gift box containing c.h.o.c.o.l.a.t.e. 

My boys made it very clear they’d take me down if I had passed on that one.  And by clear, I mean a certain 5 year old held me hostage with his cap gun until I agreed – Luke doesn’t mess around when it comes to chocolate.  Like, ever.  Which will either, A). make some woman very happy one day to find a mate who shares a love of chocolate or, and the more likely scenario, B). make said mate very cranky when she goes for her monthly chocolate fix at 12:38 am…only to discover her secret stash has been hijacked.  Which, I think, is grounds for divorce.  If not, then it should be.  Just sayin’.  😉

Anyhoo…I digress.

Before I share all the sweet little details of the gluten free, dairy free Halloween goodies we received in our complimentary gluten free, dairy free Halloween gift box, allow me to first tell you about So Lucky Gifts (quote taken directly from the website):

The world of gluten free food is a vast and growing marketplace.  There is a dynamic offering of foods, both modified and naturally gluten free to select from- choices that can lead to disappointment if not carefully selected.  Our team painstakingly curates this expanding offering of foods into hand-selected, taste and performance tested gift collections.

We’ve tasted, cooked with, and served all the foods in our collections.  We ensure only the best gourmet products are part of our gift boxes, so purchase them with confidence.  There are no cardboard-like cookies or deflated breads.  We understand that texture is one of the most important differences between gluten free and conventional foods, and we offer only those that are almost indistinguishable with conventional foods (and many are even better!)

Additionally, and most importantly, all of our products are gluten free. We read ingredient lists, talk with the manufacturers and scrutinize their production procedures.  We provide ingredient information for each item in the box, so selecting items for those with multiple food allergies can be done with ease.

The Verdict?

The gift box arrived beautifully packaged, albeit slightly dinged up from the shipping process (it happens from time to time).  The candy was a huge hit even though the chocolate pumpkin sucker did suffer a tad bit from the late autumn New Mexico heat (a natural hazard when shipping chocolate to the desert) – of course, that didn’t stop Luke in the least from devouring it on sight.  In 2.3 seconds, no less.

For the sake of complete honesty, I will say – straight up – that the cost seems a little high for what you actually get.  However, I think that’s fairly typical when it comes to gourmet gift baskets/boxes, gluten free or not.  You pay for convenience, pretty packaging and the giant smile it will undoubtedly put on someone’s face when they open it.

While I’m typically a DIY kinda gal when it comes to gifts like this (hey, when you’re feeding a gluten free family of four, 2 of whom are growing boys…some things just have to give!), I do think the So Lucky Gifts Halloween Gift Boxes would be a wonderful gift for grandparents to buy for their little gluten free grandgoblins.  Or for mom and dad to send to their gluten free college students living away from home (you’re never too old for Halloween candy!).

OR…you can enter now for a chance to win one of the above two Halloween gift boxes for FREE, courtesy of So Lucky Gifts!! 🙂
