Love with Food is a fun snack discovery subscription available in three versions: Tasting Box, Deluxe (family size), and Gluten-Free. They also offer an Office Plan for sharing with your co-workers. 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
DEAL: You can try Love With Food by using this link to get your first Deluxe Box for $5 off or get your first Classic Size Box for $7.99. You can also save 25% on your first Gluten-Free box by using this link. As always, Love With Food donates meals to charity with each box purchased.
Love with Food’s theme for December was Share the Love with Christine Ha. There was info on how you can earn points for reviewing your snacks and then redeem your rewards points for more snacks. 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. You can find this month’s info here.
There were several handouts this month with info on some of the products and even a couple of coupons and discount codes.
Everything in my box! I love to grab a snack from the box and stick it in my tote without a second thought. No Ziplocs needed and I don’t have to worry about change for the vending machine.
Blue Diamond Mini Nut-Thins Hint of Sea Salt I buy these all the time and love that they are not as salty as other types of crackers. They are good all on their own – no dip needed.
I love the mini size of these crackers, they are cute. I usually buy them by the box, but it was nice to have a portion-controlled serving.
The bars were dense and chewy. The apple one had a classic sweet apple flavor while the berry bar tasted like berries. My daughter and I agreed that we prefer Lära Bars but it was a nice change of pace.
Munk Pack Double Dark Chocolate Protein Cookie I wasn’t expecting peanut butter to be the first ingredient so be careful if you are around those with nut allergies. Also, the package says it has 18 grams of protein per cookie, which is two servings. If you eat the whole thing at once then you are also eating 360 calories!
I shared it with my daughter. Although it is cookie-shaped, it is basically a protein bar and tastes similar to other bars. It would be good heated for a few seconds in the microwave and served with a glass of milk.
Beanitos Original Black Bean Chips I’m quite happy with regular tortilla chips thank you very much but these do have an impressive amount of fiber – 6 grams for the whole bag. There’s a consistency issue that I can’t seem to get over but my daughter said they tasted like chips.
Fruigees 24 Carrot Orange Organic Fruit Snack was interesting. I thought it tasted like apricot jam and the consistency was almost like blended jello. My daughters seemed to like it though and it is mostly made of fruit juices.
Pop Art Thai Coconut Curry Gourmet Popcorn What a creative popcorn flavor, but then, Pop Art claims that you can paint popcorn with bold flavors, and they certainly did that here! I wasn’t sure if I would like it, but it had a bit of curry powder flavor and was a little sweet. Overall, it went together very nicely. My husband didn’t like it, and my daughters refused to try it. I had a couple of pieces fall to the floor and picked them up and threw them in a little trash can. My crazy cat stuck her head in the trash and pulled them out and ate them!
Dolcetto Chocolate Wafer Rolls I received three rolled wafers that had a creamy filling inside. My cookies were intact and perfectly crispy, however, the filling didn’t taste like chocolate at all and had a chemical after taste. My family said they were fine.
Bakery on Main Cranberry Almond Maple Granola This was a small serving so I ate it as an evening snack. It was very crunchy and I was surprised to see that it was made with navy beans!
Vegan Rob’s Wild Rice Chips are made with sprouted brown rice flour and feature quinoa, chia seeds, and flax seeds.
I shared these with a friend (there are 1 1/2 servings in this bag) and she thought they tasted like “veggie” chips. I guess they make a nice change from regular potato chips.
Nothing But the Fruit Real Fruit Bites in Strawberry and Mixed Berry I usually find some kind of alternative to sugar and dye filled traditional “fruit” snacks in this subscription. Each bag is considered one serving of fruit, although I think of them purely as a snack. The flavor is a little tart but very good and my daughter really likes them.
SunButter Creamy Sunflower Butter I’ve never tried SunButter before now, but I know the school cafeteria where I teach serves it instead of peanut butter in sandwiches. My usual natural peanut butter is made only of peanuts and salt, and the first thing I noticed about this product is that it contains sugar, so it was too sweet for my tastes. If you are looking for an alternative to Skippy or JIF then this is very similar. It tastes like roasted sunflower seeds, but the consistency was similar to those other PB’s.
Wholesome Organic Peppermint Candy Cane I haven’t managed to try these yet, I plan on giving them to my daughters instead. I am happy to see that the color is provided by fruits and not dye and it is sweetened with cane sugar and brown rice syrup.
There’s always a nice assortment of snacks in my monthly Love with Food! I’m kind of hesitant to try new things at the store and don’t want to buy bulk items on the internet so this lets me try items I wouldn’t normally go for. There’s always something for everyone, with several items going directly to my kids. If you review your items for points and have an annual subscription it brings down the cost of the box, plus the coupon codes add to the value. Of course, you can always buy the items individually or in bulk but I prefer the convenience of having a variety of snacks to choose from. Love With Food donates meals to charity with each box purchased.
