Love With Food January 2017 Deluxe Box Review + Coupon

Love with Food is a fun snack discovery subscription available in three versions: classic tasting box, deluxe/family size, and gluten-free. I shared these snacks with my family of 3 (sometimes 4 when my daughter is home from college.) What sets this subscription apart?

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

FYI, you can see our reviews of all 3 varieties of Love With Food boxes here.

Love with Food’s theme for January was “Seize the Day.” If you want to know more about the snacks in your box then you can go to the website and see which snacks are gluten-free, kosher, vegan, etc.

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. Some of the coupons can be used in the store and some were for online purchases.

Truvia Calorie-Free Sweetener This sugar substitute is made from the leaves of the stevia plant and each packet is the sweetness equivalent of two teaspoons of sugar. This is handy if you like to take your sweetener along with you just in case you face an iced-tea sweetening emergency. Always be prepared!

Dave’s Sweet Tooth Toffee in Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Crunch were both very buttery and had almonds and a coating of milk chocolate.

I couldn’t really tell much of a difference in taste between the two flavors but both were yummy!

I brought along one of these bags of Door County Original Potato Chips to enjoy with my sandwich at lunch. They were crispy and salty and went through a double-cooking process before they made their way to my table.

Wow, I can’t believe this packet of Fiber Gourmet Cinnamon Swirl Thinnables has 15 grams of fiber! I didn’t care for them, however, as they had an artificial flavor, were overly sweet with an aftertaste, and had a weird texture, like chalk. I would rather get my bran from other sources.

These cookies look anemic compared to the picture on the package!

Shh, don’t tell my preschool students that Bitsy’s BrainFood Smart Crackers Maple Carrot Crisp are good for them. They clamored for more of these “dinosaur cookie crackers” that come in tangram shapes but they ate them so quickly that they didn’t have time to make art out the pieces. Even the adults who tried them liked the maple flavor!

I wish I’d had the Prince of Peace Ginger Candies last week when I had a visit from the stomach bug. Ginger is supposed to ease nausea but this is a little strong. I also tried a cup of Instant Ginger Honey Crystals, which I mixed with hot water. Sadly, this brought about memories of strep throat – my throat was ON FIRE! I couldn’t drink more than two sips and my throat felt painful for a while afterwards.

Crème de Piroline Dark Chocolate Creamy, dark chocolate filling inside of a flaky, sweet wafer cookie, so delicate and decadent.

At first, I wasn’t sure I liked Goodie Girl Quinoa Choco-Chip Cookies but they tasted better with each bite. Quinoa and rice flour are featured here, along with chocolate chips. Not exactly Toll House but not bad for a gluten-free treat.

The chocolate in Dilettante’s Coffee TruffleCremes Trio was so creamy and smooth, I was sort of glad, I guess, that there were only a couple of these because I may have ended up eating all of them at once. I only received 2 out of 3 flavors, mocha and espresso, can I have another box? No? Oh well, I tried.

I was running late one morning and grabbed Red Plate Foods Vegan Cinnamon Granola for breakfast. This blend of oats, applesauce, and dried cranberries was tasty and would be just as delectable in a yogurt parfait or straight out of the bag. Made in a dedicated gluten- and major food allergen-free facility.

I’ve tried a few different green drinks thanks to subscription boxes and Aloha Daily Good Greens in Chocolate has been the tastiest one so far. This blend of spirulina, cacao, moringa, and mushroom extract smelled like cocoa mix and was sweet thanks to coconut sugar and monk fruit extract. Still, this isn’t a sipping drink; I gulped it down and spied a bit of sludge in the bottom of my glass, but overall I think this is a tasty way to get some vitamins.

Honey Stinger Kids’ Organic Chocolate Waffle A year ago I had never heard of a stroopwafel, now I get them occasionally in boxes. Organic honey is sandwiched between two cocoa-infused cookies for a chewy treat. The chocolate flavor was light and the treat was filling.

I love that the snacks featured in my box are grab-and-go friendly and enjoyed two days of snacks thanks to Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies in Dark Cacao and Vanilla Bean. These are less like a cookie and more like a candy as the “flour” is ground almond meal rather than wheat. My favorite was the cacao flavor!

I relished my January Love with Food box! I appreciate the fact that Love with Food sends items that can be enjoyed by everyone, including young children. If you review your items for points and have an annual subscription it brings down the cost of the box, plus the coupons add to the value. 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. I simply grab a treat and stick it in my lunchbox and don’t have to think about it. My family enjoyed finding new favorites, plus Love With Food donates meals to charity with each box purchased!
