The Marvelous Food Company Review & Giveaway

The Marvelous Food Company

The Marvelous Food Company is family owned by Juliette and Skip Parker.  They have two young kids with food allergies. Their products were born out of a desire to make allergen free foods for their kids that tasted good, and that helped their picky toddler to eat the fruits, vegetables, and protein he needed. You can read their whole story here.

They produce two products: cookies and muffins.  You can click on the links to view the ingredients. You will find that both products contain wholesome ingredients.  A single serving of either product contains a full serving of fruits and vegetables.

Both products are free of major allergens. They have dedicated their mixing and baking facility to be completely free of: gluten, dairy, soy, all nuts, eggs, yeast, and corn.

Marvelous Food Products

Both products are moist and taste homemade.  As you can see from the photo, the chocolate mini muffins are very small.  They come in foil pouches with two muffins or cookies per pouch.  Be sure to look for the notch along the bottom edge to tear open the pouches.

It is recommended that the products be refrigerated, and unlike many baked goods, these are actually better cold.

Both products have good flavor.   They do contain garbanzo bean flour, which I am not a fan of.  But with the flavorful ingredients in these products, no one noticed a bean flavor.

My kids found the look of the muffins and cookies to be unappealing.  I agree, they don’t look particularly appetizing. However, I really enjoyed their taste and my youngest son, who is not gluten free, also enjoyed them.  Once he got over the look of them and gave them a try, he really liked them and would ask if he could have some for snacks.

My oldest gluten free son tried them but did not care for the taste.  He said they were bitter, but he’s not very good with flavors, and I think he didn’t care for the ginger that is in both products.

Both of these kids were shocked when I told them about the fruits and vegetables in the products.  They didn’t think they tasted like vegetables at all.

While these cookies and muffins were created with kids in mind, I think they make great snacks for adults too.

    I would love to win your giveaway today!! I receive your information by email and appreciate all you do!

  2. Kimberly Baham says

    I would kill (okay not literally, figuratively) for a snack product my girls could eat that meet their food allergy needs AND have fruits and veggies in them!!! So pick me, pick me! 😉 thank you for your reviews of gfree products…I could spend a small fortune through trial and error, so it’s like you are saving me money! Love it, now if we could just find a way to make gfree items not cost a small fortune! :) Happy Sunday

      Hi Kimberly!

      We agree GF/allergen free foods are WAAAAY over priced and we’re not sure why. We are able to sell a bag, which is 12 cookies or muffins, for only$5.99, far, far cheaper then everyone else. I think most company’s over charge cause they know that Allergen cunsumers HAVE to have their stuff and know that you don’t have any options to pay less so they have no need to make their prices competative. We’re here to change that and glad to do so!

  3. Kimberly Baham says

    I liked The Marvelous Food Company on facebook and gave you props for it on their wall!

    It’s marvelous to have a store-bought product without any of the major allergens to have on hand when I don’t feel like baking. Thank you from Holland, MI. “Liked” The Marvelous Food Company and reposted on Facebook.

  10. Cindy Moore-Sailors says

    I love any Gluten free foods that are corn and soy free as well. A great deal of GF products on the market utilize corn and soy ingredients and it makes my mouth hole sad that I can’t eat them. Heres hoping I get lucky and get some tasty vittles for free!

  11. Christine says

    Wow. A company with a dedicated CORN FREE facility (in addition to gluten.) I can finally feel safe about eating baked goods I don’t make. :-)

  12. Carrie Elsass says

    Thanks for the opportunity to win these tasty treats! Can’t wait to try them and have my 8 year old son try them!

  28. Kristi says

    I am new to this whole gluten-free situation as my 1 year old son was diagnosed with a severe wheat protein allergy! He barely got into tasting different types of foods when we were alarmed with an outbreak of allergy symptoms, including a horrid rash. So for something that he would be able to try and hopefully like in this journey right now would be great!
