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

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

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 May was Thrive. 

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 a few handouts this month with info on some of the products plus 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.

Napoli’s Pizza Chips In Parmesan & Romano ($3.99) are made from pizza dough and this bag had several servings in it.

The chips are even shaped like a slice of pizza! Very yummy, with a cheese and herb flavor and a medium-weight, crispy chip.

Pork Clouds Rosemary & Sea Salt Fried Pork Rinds ($1.31) I’m not really a chicharrones person but I did give these a try and then gave the rest to my husband.

They are pieces of fried pork skin with rosemary flavoring. One of the ones I tried was light and crisp and the next one was hard and I had to spit it out.

Tru Women You’re Mocha Me Cocoa Plant Fueled Protein Powder ($2.50) is a powder that you mix into 8 ounces of water and then shake the heck out of it and drink it up. It has an impressive 5 grams of fiber and 15 grams of protein (about 1/3 or your daily requirement for protein). I haven’t tried this since I am not a fan of stevia, which this is sweetened with to keep it low in calories.

Fruity Smart Sweets Gummy Bears ($4.17) is made with stevia instead of sugar and I’m not a fan of the aftertaste, however, my daughter liked them just fine.

They look like traditional gummy bears but get their flavor and color from natural sources.

Made Good Vanilla Crispy Squares ($1.83) These are similar to Rice Krispies treats but taste better than the prepackaged ones they sell at the store (homemade treats are still the best!).

Of course, this version is different from the other since it is vegan plus it has “vegetable extracts” that are supposed to make it comparable to a serving of vegetables. It didn’t taste like spinach, in fact it had an almost caramel-like flavor to it.

Loacker Cocoa & Milk Wafers ($1.42) are a classic treat from Austria.

Crispy wafer cookie is layered with a delicious creamy filling. Yum!

Stoneridge Orchards Montmorency Cherries ($1.34) Oh these were so good!

These are made with cherries, sugar, and sunflower oil. They were plump and sweet, like a raisin, but softer and it tastes like cherries.

You Love Fruit Simply Mango ($2.90) My daughter liked these and she’s not really a mango fan. I liked them because they reminded me of the homemade exotic fruit leather my mom used to make.

I wasn’t expecting these to be shaped like circles! They really did taste like fresh mango, so good.

Sheffa Mint Chocolate Granola Bar ($1.78) It looks like some subscribers may have received a mocha-flavored bar but I received mint chocolate! This bar is made with oats, chocolate, and puffed rice.

The bar was crumbled into pieces but this was a pretty good-sized chunk. I liked the chocolate and I’m usually a fan of mint but it was kind of weird to have minty oats.

Ruger Xoxo Wafers ($0.72) are similar to the Loacker bar shown previously but are smaller and with less flavor.

I received one in Chocolate and another in Hazelnut and they were very small – built-in portion control!

Next up are two chewie treats. I tried Salty Road Passion Fruit Saltwater Taffy not knowing what flavor it was supposed to be and never could guess it. I let it melt in my mouth and it got saltier as it melted and you could kind of crunch the sea salt flakes! Chimes Ginger Chews are candy-like and had a bold flavor that ended up burning my tongue so I only ate about half of one.

Love With Food is always a fun box to receive and even though I have been getting this box for over a year, I still find new snacks in here along with old favorites. This is a nice box to share with family, since fruit leathers, fruit chewies, or gummy fruits are often sent, along with indulgent treats and non-boring flavors of traditional products. The best part for me is the convenience since I can grab a snack and go, but I also appreciate that Love With Food lets me try new items without purchasing a multi-pack of something my family may not like.
