I love trying new things if I can get a good deal, so when I saw I could try out the Love with Food subscription box for FREE with only $2 shipping? I figured I’d give it a shot! I was NOT disappointed.
Love with Food offers a monthly subscription box containing organic or all-natural snacks. Subscriptions start at $10 a month and each month focuses on a seasonal theme. For every box sold, Love with Food donates a meal to a food bank to help end child hunger. So tasty, all-natural organic snacks at a great price, plus you get to help people!
The box came like this:
Super cute, right? I was so excited when I saw it on the table after work that I couldn’t wait to open it up. May’s theme was Fiesta! Fiesta! due to Cinco de Mayo.
The box came with a pamphlet that included a couple of coupons and a description of each of the snacks, included their dietary classifications such as gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, organic, etc. so you could easily tell which products would be safe to eat for those with allergies. I wanted to try something right away, so I tried the Go Organics hard candies. (What’s funny is I found these exact hard candies at both Christmas Tree Shops AND Home Goods later that week.) The Blood Orange flavor brought me back to my childhood, but I can’t really pinpoint why. My first thought was my Pop-Pop, but in all honesty I think it was my Gran, with her never ending supply of Life-Savers, that was called to memory. The other flavor, Iced Mango Mint, was also really good, despite me not liking the sound of mint and mango together. Also pictured is the Vintage Bee Creamed Honey with Hibiscus, which as of this writing still sits in my kitchen. It’s creamed honey, it’s guaranteed to be delicious!
I gave the Inka Crops Inka Corn Salt & Vinegar Corn Snacks to The Hubs, as I’m NOT a fan of salt & vinegar flavor. It tastes like burning! He inhaled them, and said that while they were tart from the vinegar powder, the starch and fat of the corn kernels sort of evened everything out.
The PBthins Peanut Butter crackers by Bell Plantation were good, but I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase them. I love PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, but these were a bit dry. The flavor was reminiscent of sunflower seeds, which I liked, but wasn’t wowed by.
The Home Free Mini Lemon Burst Cookies were tasty, but again, not something I would go out of my way to buy. They weren’t particularly mini, either. They were a nice size and had a great crunchy texture, which was surprising for a gluten-free product. (Of course, I have very little experience with textures of gluten-free products, so don’t take my word for it!) I did like the serving size for these, which was three cookies and only 50 calories. Great if you want a little something after dinner but nothing too sweet or too high in calories.
Both The Hubs and I really liked these Spinach & Kale Corn Chips by The Better Chip! We split the bag since it contained 2 servings. About the same calories as potato chips, but non-GMO and gluten free, and they were really tasty! I was very well behaved and only ate one serving, but I definitely could have eaten the whole bag myself. Self-control is helpful!
I also gave The Hubs the Dick & Jane Baking Company SMART Educational Snacks. They apparently have lessons in English and Spanish on them and are a nut-free all-natural snack. He said the flavor was good, but they were chalky. The only true failure of the box!
I’ve decided to start getting this subscription box and pausing my Graze subscription indefinitely. I like how Graze has all of it’s portions individually laid out for you, but I’m getting a little bored of the selection as of late, and I really liked the variety in this box! Plus I really like the idea of some of my money going to charity. The Hubs is in agreement, especially since I never share my Graze snacks with him!
