I was recently contacted by a rep of Tasterie, an allergy-friendly meal subscription service launched this past June. Founded by Dr. Lama Rimawi, MD, a practicing pediatrician from Massachusetts primarily out of the “frustration” she experienced trying to find healthy, allergen-free products to feed her two children, one of whom had multiple food allergies. “I can remember standing in the aisles of supermarkets trying to read labels, sleep deprived, with a newborn at home and a toddler between my legs wanting an easier and better option.” Sound familiar? A subscription to Tasterie will get you one TasterieBox filled with products to fit your specific dietary needs delivered direct to your door on a monthly basis! Visit here to see the different boxes offered. Tasterie also offers vegan, top-8 allergen-free, & healthy & nutritious boxes! Can you trust that the products in your box will be completely free of the specific allergen(s)? No worries, the Tasterie team performs a rigorous check of all products to ensure their safety. “We treat food allergy safety as no simple matter! Every TasterieBox item is carefully sourced by our team of physicians and nutritionists. You also receive detailed information on the contents in the box. Please contact us if you wish to get further details on the rigorous food screening protocol we employ.” Team Tasterie, led by Dr. Rimawi, also ensures that each box contains a nutritionally balanced, healthy assortment of products which are both pleasing to the eye as well as the palette. The team is always searching for new and exciting products to include. TasterieBoxes come in two options (both chock full of your specified dietary requirement products!): The Snack Box ($15/mo.) contains a variety of (6-8) delicious, healthy, “grab & go” snacks and the Signature Box ($20/mo) contains 8-10 items (prepared or require cooking) for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner.
If you are just plain tired of reading labels, simply don’t have the time to shop for a variety of allergen-free products or don’t live in close proximity to a market that stocks the products you, or a family member, require – then a Tasterie subscription plan is your practical solution!

I was excited when my gluten-free TasterieBox arrived at the door! Feeling like a kid at Christmas opening up a present, I excitedly unfolded the pretty blue packing paper, and there laying atop a bed of straw, was a delightful assortment of gluten-free products … a full-size (12 oz) bag of Sweet Cranberry Pecan Granola by Love Grown Foods; Falafel Chips from Flamous (1.6 oz, organic); 2 pkgs. of Yogavive Apple Chips (.35 oz, organic); 2 pkgs. of Enjoy Life Seed & Fruit Mix (2 .75 oz); 2 pkgs. Almond Butter by Barney (1.06 oz); an 11.7 oz jar of Roasted Eggplant & Pepper Hummus from Robert Rothschild Farm; and yes, there was something sweet … not 2, not 4, but 8 chocolate squares from Amanda’s Own Confections, which came in a clear box tied in a colorful ribbon! I was happy to see the majority of the products were certified gluten-free! Considering this Snack box is offered at $15, I’d say it is a pretty good value (have you checked the price of a bag of gluten-free granola lately?).
