iHerb Review & Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

Recently I was contacted by iHerb, an online company that sells grocery items as well as vitamins and supplements.  They also carry many gluten free foods.  I’m so glad they contacted me because  I wasn’t familiar with the company.    They gave me a $50 shopping spree in their grocery section and are offering the same thing to one lucky winner.

They have a nice assortment of gluten-free foods and I tried to choose a variety of things.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of everything when the package arrived.  This picture shows some of the things I received, but there was also a box of cookies, a package of wild rice, and a box of risotto.  It was a lot for $50.  I actually received a whole box of the  Lara Bars.  I had not tried them before, and was glad I did.  They were good, and provided a great handy snack on our ski trip.

If you are interested in shopping at iHerb, please use my code LUT727 or my email address, glutenfreehomemaker@gmail.com.  Doing so will give you $5 off your first order and help me out a little.  :-)  Their shipping rates are very reasonable with free shipping for orders over $40 when shipped anywhere in the contiguous United States.

The Giveaway is open to US resident and the winner will be required to register at the website.   To enter, take a quick look at  the  iHerb grocery items or their gluten free foods.  Leave a comment on this post telling me at least one thing you think you would order.  Please provide an email address so I can contact you.  The giveaway will end Wednesday, February 3rd at 11:00 p.m. eastern time.


Love iHerb! One thing I would get is Ultima because we like to use it and don't buy it much (a bit expensive). It's an electrolyte powder but doesn't have carbonates.
Coconut flour & chia seeds, 2 things I've been wanting to try. brennakate @ gmail :)
I never knew they existed. It is always nice to have alternative ways to shop.
We would like to Try the Larabars. We have looked at them a few times and still have not tried them.
We order Gultinos Pretzels when ever we can. We love those. The pricing for them is not bad either.

Thank You
Live Laugh and Enjoy!

Oh my so much I would order! I think if we won I would try the Chocolate Truffle brownie mix and those Larabars!

Thank you so much for sharing this site. Some of the staples we use in our home are much cheaper!

My son loves the Glutino pretzels and breakfast bars! I'd want to try the Lundberg Risotto's we haven't already had the pleasure of sampling ... which would mean all of them except for the Italian Herb & Alfredo :)

I am sorry to see the Glutino Chocolate Dream sandwich cookies discontinued as I had bought them in the past. I saw them for the first time at a Raley's supermarket. I would like to try the Glutino wafer cookies. I have tried the pretzels and they are good but so expensive.
ooh I have not heard of this site either until today. thank you for sharing! if I won, oh my, the things I would buy! One very important thing on that list would be the Glutino, Sans Gluten Free, Wafer Cookies, Vanilla Flavored/Chocolate covered wafers. Oh sooo good!
Thank you for sharing the give away with us!
thanks for sharing this link - i had not heard of this company before. i would love to try the risottos.
I was not familiar with their site but it looks fantastic. I would love to order the cherry pie Lara Bars and the Whey Too Good Brownie Mix!
Love IHerb- I buy tapioca flour and guar gum!
love love LOVE larabars!

I would go for one of the Glutino breakfast cereals. I miss cereal sometimes now...so probably the honey nut.

I would definitely buy the Lara bars and the risotto. I am supposed to stay to a gluten-free diet for fibromyalgia and I bet this would help. They have so many wonderful products!
I love Aubrey Organics shampoo and conditioner and iHerb has a great price on it so I think I would stock up on it! My favorites are the Green Tea shampoo and the Honeysuckle Rose conditioner. Thanks to you and iHerb for a generous giveaway!
I would love to try the gluten free pantry mixes! Thanks for the giveaway!
I would order the 'Himalaya USA, Chyavanprash with Honey', I LOVE honey + it looks fantastic!
I'd love to try the brown rice syrup and the rice cakes. My favorite Lara bar is the cashew cookie, I've been hooked on those for about 4 years now. cookingTF@gmail.com
I would try The lundberg wild rice blend. :)
I just recently ordered for the first time from iHerb and was very pleased with their products. I would love to buy some Xanthan gum and millet flour!!
Have bought from iHerb before as a 3rd party on Amazon. Love Lundgren, love Larabar. I would buy either of these from their site.
I would go for the Glutino pretzels and certified GF oats!
I would buy xanthan gum, quinoa flour, tapioca flour to name just a few things. Would love to win. Thanks!
I like the Bob's Flaxseed Meal and am a huge fan of Larabars. virlseribo1@gmail.com
Thanks for the heads-up on this website; I hadn't heard of them, either. I am super-interested in their site now. Much of what I have to travel a half-hour to buy they carry, and only $4.00 for shipping? Or free shipping for orders over $40?! I think I'm in love. :)

Thanks for the contest!
I'd get some Larabars (they have some kinds I haven't tried yet!) or some breakfast bars/easy food. I've been looking for yummy (gluten free) items to stash in my desk or grab when going out the door. (palila at gmail)
I hadn't heard about this site either. The prices look good, and they carry gluten free items that I haven't been able to find locally ~ including sorghum flour and tapioca flour. I would love to be able to stock up on my baking staples. Thank you!!
I've never heard of this site, thanks for sharing. I would definitely order Lara Bars (my fave) and probably some glutino pretzels. Before going g-free I ate whole wheat pretzels a lot. It's a great site, I'll probably be ordering from there!
I would love to try coconut oil and soba noodles! Thanks for the great blog.
I would like to try the country wild rice, the pantry browines and the soba noodles.
Thanks for sharing this site.

Thanks for sharing about this company. I've never heard of it either. We are new to the gluten free diet so there are a lot of things we would like to try. The Glutino pretzels look yummy and I'd love to try the Lara bars too. I've seen them at our grocery store but never bought them.
Hi Linda,

Thanks for the giveaway! I've had an ongoing shopping list from iHerb saved for a while, I need to place that order! I'd really like to try some of their supplements as well as a couple different brands of coconut oil.

Thanks again! ~Aubree Cherie
I would love to try the Xantham Gum, I'm a gluten free newbie, but I love to bake.

i've been wanting to experiment with different flours, and it would be so wonderful to get everything from the same place! we all know that you have to mix lots of flours, depending on what you're making, but it's often hard to find the ones i need (arrowroot, teff, millet, sweet rice, to be specific!)
I would really like to try the tapioca flour. I always see its needed in many recipes and never actually got it yet. I would also like to trya type of sesame pretzel - such as glutinos.
Thanks so much for another great giveaway!
Oh my gosh. Ok, so I'm like a kid in a candy store. Flour, mixes, bars, pasta! Everything! But really, the chocolate truffle brownie mix will be in my dreams tonight. Am I still drooling?

Thanks for the chance
I've never heard of this site before but the prices seem really reasonable. I would like to try the coconut flour. Thanks

I had never heard of iHerb... but if it is a place that I can consistently get my Bannana Bread Lara Bars I will be a happy camper! I loooooove that particular variety and the closest place that I can (occasionally) get them is over 70 miles away!
I love iHerb! I would order the quinoa flour to make some muffins.
:) Meghan
Wow, I would definitely stock up on some almond flour and sorghum flour for my baking! The prices are fabulous! I can't believe I've been paying so much at the HFS...glad I know better now :) Thanks Linda!
I'd love to get the Lundberg, Rice Chips, Fiesta Lime!

calidreamin87 (at) gmail (dot) com
I'd love to stock up on some mixes (Bob's Red Mill, GF Pantry) as well as snacks like Larabars and Glutino pretzels!

kochac22 @ yahoo . com
We are new to the gluten free diet, so I would try any of the pantry items, breakfast cereal or bars, the Lara Bars, alt flours. Too many to say for sure...so much to try. Thanks for the site/info, I'm sure it will be helpful on our journey.

I would like to try the quinoa flour. I haven't tried it yet!

I think I would order the Now Foods, Whey Too Good, Brownie Mix!

chalcedonia at gmail.com
I would try quinoa or almond flour... haven't decided yet. (my email address is visible in my profile)
I would like to try the nutrional yeast flakes from the site!

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Not sure what I would get, but do they ship to Hawaii? Susette
Oooh. They have a great selection! I would for sure get some coconut flour. I love that stuff!

thegoodeatah at gmail dot com
I would like to try several things (of course!). Glutino Vanilla Dreams Sandwich Cookies or Glutino Shortcake Cookies Shortcake Dreams, or Glutino Honey Nut cereal.
Wow - my first foray into gluten-free recipes, and I found this blog. How lucky is that? Just today my doctor told me to start gluten-free cooking and baking so almost anything on that wonderful site would be new to me. I know I need some Xanthan Gum and those Larabars look scrumptious - a handy treat to have in my purse when out and about to avoid forbidden items.

Thanks so much for investing time and effort into this blog. I've bookmarked it already!

Anneta B (I don't know how to leave an email for you that won't be published with my comments, but I will be checking back. I do live in OP KS so that can sort of identify me.)
I would definitely order some amazing grass protein powder and some larabars!! Great giveaway!!! :)
My email is melindapollard@gmail.com
LARABARS!!! My favorite on the go snack! I also wouldn't mind several different gf flours... I've been experimenting in the kitchen lately.
