Love with Food‘s theme for March was Healthy Grocery Finds. If you’re unfamiliar with this subscription, it’s a fun snack discovery subscription and inexpensive. We get the Deluxe box, but if you use my link, you can get the Classic Size box free (pay $2 shipping). You can also save $10 on your first Gluten-Free box by using this link.

I admit – this is probably my least fave theme ever from this subscription. I want more goodies, less groceries. The box was curated by Megan Roosevelt, Founder of Healthy Grocery Girl and plant-based Registered Dietitian.

There were 3 classic box versions (Healthy Snack Finds, Healthy Food Finds) this month so I picked Healthy Grocery Finds Classic Tasting Box to compare to.

Hemp Hearts (1 in classic, 2 in deluxe) I honestly have Hemp Hearts coming out my ears. They’re fantastic and healthy and we use them in oatmeal.

The Good Bean Roasted Chickpeas with Sea Salt (1 in classic, 2 in deluxe) These are great portion control packages – useful because my husband has an issue with these! He’ll eat the entire bag in a sitting.

Two Moms in the Raw Almond Butter Cacao Truffle (1 in classic, 2 in deluxe) Now here’s a healthy goodie we can get behind.

Spice Hunter Herbes de Provence (0 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

Miracle Tree Tea (1 in classic, 2 in deluxe) Organic Moringa tea.

479 Simply Sea Salt (0 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

BOPS Sea Salt (1 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

Bare Apple Chips – Fuji Red (0 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

Annie’s Chocolate Bunny Grahams (1 in classic, 0 in deluxe) Not in Deluxe.

Mango Fig Bar by Nature’s Bakery (1 in classic, 0 in deluxe) Not in Deluxe.

To be honest, before I started writing this review and doing the box to box comparison I knew something was just off about this box.  I gave extensive feedback to LWF about the deluxe box after the first boxes were so disappointing. I don’t know why we’re back to that (good news, the classic box is still fun and your first one’s free!).

Trujoy Sweets Choco Chews (3 in classic, 5 in deluxe) These were super sticky and a bit hard – I had to immediately brush my teeth but I also owe my dentist a visit.

Finally, something to get excited about!

180 Snacks Nutty Rice Bites with Cranberries (1 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

180 Snacks Cranberry Pomegranate Clusters (0 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

Fruigees Nothing Beets Cherry Fruit Snack  (0 in classic, 1 in deluxe)

I was really happy with the 180 Snacks and the fruit pouch – but terribly disappointed that faves like Annie’s and Nature’s Bakery weren’t in this box.

    I don’t know what happened with the Deluxe box this month, but mine had no descriptive info pamphlet and 5 of the items listed on the site as being in the Deluxe box were missing – I had other items instead (which of course meant I wasn’t able to earn points for reviewing those). I was missing the choco chews, Nothing Beets Cherry, Cranberry Pomegranate Clusters, Fuji Red Bare Apple Chips, and the popcorn. Instead, I had 2 of the Annies chocolate graham bunnies, 2 of the Nutty Rice Bites, 2 Casava Pops (didn’t we have those a few months ago?), a mini 2 Degrees Chocolate Banana Bar, and an Orchard Blend Crunch Dried Fruit (I know we had that a while back). Reading reviews for the Deluxe box, lots of similar complaints about the same items missing. Oddly, all of the items were showing as available in the shop, so I can’t imagine why they weren’t in the boxes. When I emailed LWF, I got no real answer but they did give me extra points “for the inconvenience.” Personally, I don’t like the roasted chickpeas (and like you have more than enough) or hemp hearts, and I didn’t care for the “truffle” thingy, so I’m not a happy camper this month. I hope they don’t let this person curate any more boxes – seems like they got a bit carried away with the different tasting boxes and ignored the Deluxe one.

      i think they just got carried away and forgot the principles of the deluxe box that they promised last year. that it needs to have all the premium items that the classic box does and that’s a big DUH. yes we had cassava pops earlier. my kids love the orchard blend – i buy that crap by the case!

        Well, I was happy to have the Annies bunnies, and I also like the orchard blend, so I’m not upset about those being in the box. I just wish they’d remember what they’re supposed to be doing and not randomly substitute things like this. It’s bad enough when I get a different flavor item than the one I’m asked to review, but this was ridiculous. Hoping for better next month.
