  • No trans fats and hydrogenated oils
  • No high fructose corn syrup
  • Snacks are natural, organic or gluten-free

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.

DEAL: Use this link to save 25% on your first Love With Food Deluxe box! Or on your first month of the Gluten-Free box!

Love with Food’s theme for December was “Holiday with Tiffani” and featured snacks curated by Tiffani Thiessen! There were several cards inside this month including how you can find more info about the products in the box.

There were also a few coupons and discount codes in the box. This can help increase the value of your box if you plan on purchasing more of your favorite finds.

Bark Thins Snacking Chocolate in Dark Chocolate Almond with Sea Salt ($1.95) was a family favorite and had fair-trade chocolate and dry roasted almonds with a hint of sea salt. Big flavor from few ingredients, yum!
Next up is what I call “kid treats” and I see these regularly in the elementary school lunch room. I tried one of Horizon’s Organic Fruit Snacks in Bunch o’ Berries (79¢) and while I usually don’t like gummy things I thought this one was delicious and my daughter never offered to share the rest so I think she liked them too. She also let me try a bit of GoGo Squeeze Banana Yogurtz ($1.19) and although I didn’t care for it personally, what mattered was that my picky child liked it. Plus it’s shelf stable until opened so it doesn’t take up room in the fridge.
 I served Horizon Organic Cheddar Cheesy Deluxe Macaroni & Cheddar Cheese (similar one is $6 on Amazon) along with fish sticks and broccoli for a full dinner. I just had to boil water, drain the pasta after cooking, and squeeze the pouch of sauce onto the hot pasta and toss. My family thought it was a little bland. I thought the sauce was very silky but this isn’t the same as the one in the blue box, which my kids prefer. Personally, I like the frozen one from Stouffers.
I shared this bag of Veggie Pasta Chips in Spinach, Broccoli, and Kale ($2) with my husband on sandwich night and we both agreed that it was pretty good but a little bland. Lucy’s Ginger Snaps Grab n Go ($1.49) were just right, crispy and not too spicy with a surprising lemon flavor. I am amazed at how yummy gluten-free cookies can be!
I enjoyed Off the Cob Chips in Sweet Corn with Sea Salt ($1.36). They were sweet and salty corn chips and similar to Original Sun Chips.
Sanissimo Salmas Oven Baked Corn Crackers reminded me of oven-baked low-fat tortilla chips and had just a touch of salt. Luna Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bar ($1) has a crispy and chewy texture thanks to puffed grains and oats. The nutty flavor was mild and the chocolate flavor was good.
Ahhh, chocolate time is “me” time and I savored every bite of these babies. I managed to share Baron’s Premium Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark ($1.99) with my family and heard lots of “yums” and not much else since they were busy stuffing their faces. This tasted almost exactly like an Andes Thin Mint except there was a touch of crunch from the peppermint candies. No one else was around when I tried Nib Mor Daily Dose of Dark with Cacao Nibs (25¢) which was for the best since it was a single serving anyways. Smooth chocolate with crunchy bits of cacao nib isn’t really a treat, it’s a health food necessity, right? That’s what I’m going to keep telling myself.

I really enjoyed my very first Love with Food! This box had a bit of everything for families, such as gummy fruit chews, mac & cheese, and chocolate (YES!). This month’s box had a pretty good value, plus, if you review your items for points and have an annual subscription it brings down the cost of the box. Of course, you can always buy the items individually or in bulk but I prefer to pay a bit more for the convenience of having a variety of snacks to choose from. My family enjoyed finding new favorites, plus Love With Food donates meals to charity with each box purchased!
