UK's First Wonky Bread Box Service! - Updated March 2022

Information was updated in March 2022 to reflect changes to their referral scheme, a new Wonky biscuit box to their product range, and a price increase to £8.99, from £7.00.




Wonky Bread Box Saving

Earth & Wheat are a Wonky Bread supplier! They gather fresh bread that the baker's regular customers may reject, often due to the products being the wrong size and shape or due to excess stock being produced, and every Wednesday, they send you a box of tasty bread straight to your door!


The concept is pretty simple, they gather up bread that would typically go to waste, and you get delicious bread at a great price, all the while knowing that you are helping fight food waste!


You can choose a weekly or fortnightly delivery, which is excellent as you may not get through a whole box a week (Each box is 2kg of bread products), so it allows you to spread the deliveries out. All the bread is fresh and so can be frozen!


I have, of course, tried out the service, as I do for the majority of the products and services I recommend, and I can confirm it's really good!

I received:


Corn Tortilla Wraps

Wholemeal Wraps

Focaccia

Crumpets

Wholemeal Pitta


All of which arrived in fab condition and, as advertised, very fresh! The Focaccia made fab lunchtime sandwiches, the corn tortillas were fab for our Mexican Night, and were used with Mexican style chicken and veggies and were super soft and yummy. A few of the crumpets have been enjoyed for brekkie and will, I'm sure, over the coming days! Everything else is in the freezer and will be used in the coming days.





The service costs £8.99 per delivery (up from £7.00 from 1st April 2022), We've gone with the fortnightly delivery service, as the bread will last us a couple of weeks, and so it is costing us £4.50 ish a week from now on, which is reasonable!


I got my first box at a discount, and as an opening offer, they were offering £1 off for new users and a referral scheme to provide your friends with a discounted first box; however, it does seem that since the site moved over to a new design and system, at the end of 2021, this has been dropped, which is a shame. Still, hopefully, it will be back again at some point.


For every box ordered, Earth & Wheat also donate a meal to UK food banks to help fight food poverty, so that's a pretty decent generous gesture by the company. also, the company claims that every box you rescue helps save our planet, rescuing around 3240 litres of fresh water and 3053 grams of CO2 from going to waste, and why the company uses the tag "The first wonky fresh-bread box that helps save our planet."


As a consumer, being able to stop or pause the service is essential; I have tested many a subscription service, and sometimes the companies make it hard to cancel or pause a service, which I find to be annoying and does leave me with a negative feeling, however, I'm pleased to say, you can easily pause or cancel your Earth & Wheat subscription at any time, so you aren't stuck in a never-ending subscription service, which is reassuring; however, I do not doubt that our family will be enjoying this service for months to come!




As an update for 2022: Earth & Wheat have also introduced a Wonky biscuit box to the Wonky lineup, which costs £8.99, and includes 6 x 300g separate bags of vegan biscuits, ideal for dunking in a cup of tea! They do state that you may get some vegan choccy bikkies in the selection; sadly, I didn't get them in my box, but as the offerings differ from box to box, you may get lucky :)
