Few experiences are as luxurious as slicing into a loaf of freshly baked bread right at home. However, baking (or buying) fresh bread or pastries isn’t always convenient. Luckily, there’s a food subscription service that can help. Enter: Wildgrain.

The Wildgrain reviews have been excellent, with people praising its quality. But this isn’t your average food delivery box. It’s all about quality bread and pastries, and as a professional baker, I knew I had to put it to the test! I baked my way through three loaves of bread, English muffins, brioche buns, croissants and even brownies from Wildgrain Bakery Box to see how the service and products stack up.

What is Wildgrain?

Wildgrain is a food subscription box, but unlike meal delivery services, such as Marley Spoon or HelloFresh, Wildgrain is dedicated to delivering breads, pastries and fresh pastas to your door.

Each item arrives frozen and should be kept that way until you’re ready to bake and serve. They’re individually packaged, and the bags can be reused after the bread has baked and cooled. The $89 monthly subscription includes one box of products, and you can skip a box or pause your subscription at any time.

Wildgrain partners with small bakeries to produce their offerings, all of which are made with wholesome ingredients that are non-GMO and free from artificial flavors.

How We Tested Wildgrain

To put Wildgrain to the test, we ordered a one-month subscription to the Wildgrain Bakery Box. The box arrived with items still frozen. It came with three loaves of sourdough bread, packages of English muffins, brioche buns and croissants, and a small tray of brownies. (Keep in mind that each box is different, so next month’s will have a different selection.) I put all of the items in my freezer at home until I was ready to bake and eat them. The instructions for baking are on the back of each package. I assessed the products based on convenience and flavor.

Baking the breads was very simple, and I loved that there was no thawing required. They went straight into the oven, and once done, each loaf had a lovely crunchy crust and a tender, soft center. The flavor of each bread was incredible, but the cranberry pecan bread, in particular, was a favorite.

The brownies were quick and easy to bake when I needed my chocolate fix. They were gooey as can be and packed full of flavor. They had the ideal combo: crusty edges and a soft center.

The English muffins were dense, but had such a wonderful flavor. I paired them with butter and jam for a delicious breakfast. The brioche buns were on the drier side and crackly on top, but the sweet flavor was absolutely delicious. I loved utilizing them for sandwiches.

Although all the contents of the Wildgrain Bakery Box were easy to bake and absolutely delicious, it was the croissants that stole the show. I could hardly believe that croissants from the freezer could produce such a beautifully golden final product. They were buttery and flavorful with the perfect balance of flakiness and tenderness.

What Other Reviewers Had to Say

Wildgrain is quickly gaining popularity—and for good reason. Customers’ rave reviews note the great flavor and quality of the breads and pastries.

One five-star reviewer, Ali, says, “Everything arrived still frozen, and everything tastes amazing! I love having so many breads on hand to have with meals, and these breads and pastas don’t make me feel bloated or super full. After trying a few things, I had to increase the frequency of my deliveries! The croissants are wonderful!”

Another customer, Julie, says, “Everything has been high-quality and easy to bake. I loved having warm baked bread whenever I need it. The pecan cranberry sourdough and the brioche rolls were our favorites.”

Final Verdict

The quality of the products is wonderful, with beautiful textures and great flavor. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a bread baker or simply searching for a way to avoid separate trips to the local bakery, it’s a fantastic way to try new breads and pastries and keep them consistently stocked.
