Love with Food‘s theme for April was Love is Joy! Love With Food is a fun snack discovery subscription available in three versions: classic tasting box, deluxe/family size, and gluten-free. We purchase the Deluxe box, because we have a big family and more snacks = more fun!
Joy is an almost perfect word to describe the almost indescribable idea of love. It’s pure happiness and utter excitement. And both of those things apply to delicious snacks too, right? Obviously. This month’s box is jam-packed full of goodies that we know you won’t be able to help loving. So spread the love (and joy) around!
For 2016, each month of Love With Food will feature a “Love Is…” theme! FYI, you can see our reviews of all 3 varieties of Love With Food boxes here.
The information booklet contains both the ingredients for each item plus color-coded keys indicating which are non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan! Though they offer a Gluten-free box, it’s nice to have this kind of info handily starred for households with mixed dietary profiles.
There are also other promo cards included in the box.
Skeeter cookies are always tasty, and nut-free! These are perfect for my daughter to take in her lunchbox when she wants to sit with a friend at the peanut-free lunch table.
Laiki Black Rice Crackers: These are interesting and unusual – I’ve had them a couple times but they’re tasty and different and just made with black rice, oil, and salt.
Honey Stinger Gluten Free Organic Cinnamon Waffle: A new variety! This one’s gluten free and full of carbs, carbs, and more carbs! Organic carbs! These were a really huge hit and we all wanted more!
Bali’s Best Green Tea Latte Candy: I’m not a fan of tea, and my husband isn’t a fan of green tea, so we’re passing these on to a friend. While we don’t care for them, they have a serious cult following!
Pasta Chips Rosemary Flavor: I’m 99% sure that this new flavor launched exclusively in Love With Food. I love Pasta Chips and I ate the whole bag!
Rhythm Superfoods Roasted Kale Smokey Bacon: These were weird on several fronts. First of all, they’re bacon-flavored, yet vegan. Also, instead of curly kale it’s lacinato kale, so it was flat and flakey. It was interesting to try, but we didn’t finish the container.
Here’s what the Roasted Kale looks like. I was impressed that they all arrived intact.
Nutryttiva Banana Bar: These are made with just bananas and lime juice! Both my and my 5 year old love them – we’re both crazy about anything banana.
Nature’s Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar: These are one of my favorite snacks and I was excited to get them in single serving snack sizes – they’re perfect for keeping in your desk for a mid-day snack attack when you want sweets but the stone ground whole wheat brings down the glycemic load by just a touch.
Boulder Canyon Coconut Oil Kettle Chips: I was really excited to try these – I love kettle chips and coconut oil. What could go wrong?! Unfortunately neither me nor my husband were impressed. I tried the second bag hoping to like them better, but they were a no-go for me.
This wasn’t my favorite box from Love with Food, but we generally love most months. It provides a lot of variety at not that much cost (we subscribe to an annual plan). Our must-buys from this box are Nature’s Bakery single-serving. They’re really good (and if you’re wondering, the TJ’s newtons don’t even come close to these).
If you’re looking for a longer subscription, use coupon code HELLOSUB20 to save $20 off any 12 month plan! (That’s $6.32/box for tasting, $14.83/box for deluxe, and $18.32/box for gluten-free).
