Lama Rimawi, M.D. is more than a pediatrician, she’s also the mom of a child with multiple food allergies. To help other moms find healthy delicious allergen-free food, she started Tasterie. Tasterie is a delivery service that ships products right to your door, so that you can sample foods that meet your family’s special diet needs. They offer boxes for $15 (SnackBox) or $20 (SignatureBox) per month. Plus, you can choose the sample foods you receive based on your dietary needs. Tasterie offers allergy-friendly food boxes for:
- Top 8 Allergen Free
- Dairy Allergy
- Dairy & Egg Allergy
- Dairy & Soy Allergy
- Egg Allergy
- Gluten & Wheat Allergy
- Gluten, Wheat & Dairy Allergy
- Gluten Allergy, Wheat Allergy & Vegan
- Healthy & Nutritious
- Peanut & Tree Nut Allergy
- Soy Allergy
I liked the concept so much that I accepted Dr. Rimawi’s invitation to be on the advisory panel for Tasterie. The first trial box of sample foods that I received in June was gorgeous and adorable! I loved the customized recipe cards (to fit the products in the box) and the care with which everything was packaged.
The products were obviously selected with care and showed good range. There were both sweet and savory sample foods, and I even found a couple new-to-me products in the bunch (which isn’t easy to do with this dairy-free researching diva!).
I was actually a bit surprised by the value of this service. The shipping is included, and typically a half a dozen sample products are in each box. I think this is a fantastic way to trial new products and discover some favorites.
For July, the dairy-free box included the following allergy-friendly sample foods …
As a final note, the boxes are definitely attractive enough to give as a gift. You can sign up a friend or loved one when they or their little one has been diagnosed with food allergies or intolerances. I’m sure they would LOVE to receive a pretty box full of sample foods. I know I would have!
