Jules Gluten-Free Trial Pack #1

Jules Gluten Free makes some of the better gluten-free flour and baking products that I've had.  My friend gave me bags of the GF cookie mix, all-purpose flour mix, and oatmeal, and while I haven't used the cookie mix yet, the flour is great for any baked goods I've made.  The flour has xanthan gum mixed into it so you can substitute it cup for cup to convert regular recipes to gluten free recipes. 

The products are kind of expensive, but you can order special trial packs and bundles, which make the overall cost of the products more reasonable.  I ordered the Trial Pack #1 for $55, with free shipping and was really happy with the package. 

The package included:
  • JGF 5lb All Purpose Flour
  • JGF Cookie Mix
  • JGF Oats
  • JGF Bread Mix
  • JGF Grahams/Ginger Snaps Mix
  • Nearly Normal Cooking e-Book
  • JGF Cookie Mix e-Book
  • Dinner-A-Day e-Book
Included in the box will be these items from Jules’ Product Partners: 

  • TH Foods - Crunchmaster multi-grain cracker samples, a coupon and an informational flyer
  • Erewhon - Brown Rice Cereal 10 oz. box (full size) and an informational flyer
  • Savory Choice  - box of vegetarian broth packets and an informational flyer
  • Go Picnic- full sized sample of Turkey Stick and Crunch and coupon
  • Earth Balance - Coupons for discounted products, Cooking with Coconut Brochure which includes 12 recipes, and a bamboo spreader
  • Kettle Cuisine - Coupon for FREE product and an informational flyer
  • Living Without - magazine
  • Vance's DariFree - 2 sample packets and an informational flyer
  • Enjoy Life - full sized bag of mini chips, a Survival Guide and a coupon
The site claims the value of the box is $115, but the Jules products are only worth $60, so you are essentially paying for the products from the "partners".  I also don't really think that ebooks are worth $10 each either.  But I still found it to be a good deal because the shipping was included and I will actually use most of the partner products that were included, especially the Go Picnic (love those for meals on the go or traveling), the chocolate chips, broth packets, and cereal. 

I highly recommend the Jules' baking products and am excited to try the mixes that I haven't used yet.  The trial pack is only available while supplies last, but I would expect another one would be offered.
