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 June was Live.
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.
Honey Stinger Organic Waffle in Caramel & Vanilla ($3.53) I didn’t open these yet because I’m sticking them in my carry-on for an upcoming flight! They are inspired by the Dutch stroopwafel – a waffle cookie that you can stick on top of your cup of coffee or tea to slightly warm and melt the filling, which in this case is honey.
Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash in Choc ‘O Chip – SIMILAR ($2.40) I couldn’t find this exact flavor online, but the cookie butter flavor is good too.
They are a little more shortbread-like than a Chips Ahoy, but have a similar flavor.
Wow Butter Peanut Free Natural ($1.85) My daughter thought it was crazy that we received a peanut-free item in this box along with a bag of peanuts. Wowbutter is good to take on the go and would be appreciated in nut-free zones such as schools. I usually buy peanut butter that is made of just peanuts and salt, but this sun butter has soy and palm oils along with sugar so it’s similar to Jif or Skippy peanut butters.
Westminister Bakers Co. Oyster Crackers ($0.18) are sort of like Saltine crackers and are nice to have on hand to sprinkle over soup, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Hubbard Peanut Company Home Cooked Salted Virginia Peanuts ($0.60) Classic roasted peanuts. This reminded me of when they used to give out a little packet when I would go on a plane ride.
Wholesome Surf Sweets Organic Fruity Bears ($0.38) I don’t usually care for gummy bears but these are so much better!
Here are the peanuts. I usually by lightly salted nuts at the store so these were too salty for my taste buds.
Here are the gummy bears. The sugar gives them an unexpected crunch and I appreciate that the colors come from real food and not artificial dye.
Janis & Melanie Key Lime Cookies ($4.20) I used to make a cookie similar to these, they were called Pecan Sandies and we had them every Christmas. These are inspired by Key Limes from Florida.
They have a crumbly shortbread interior and are covered with powdered sugar. They have a zingy lime flavor and were very tasty.
Ocean’s Halo Sea Salt Seaweed Snack ($1.17) The only time I voluntarily eat seaweed is when it is in the form of a California roll!
These were just so incredibly thin, and kind of fishy. Yes, I tried it, and almost spit it out. My daughter loved it though.
Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Co. Smoked Beef With Cheese ($11.24) My daughter loves beef jerky so she chose this snack to try first.
There’s a flavorful beef jerky on one side, cheese crisps on the other. Karina didn’t like the cheese but liked the beef. I liked the beef and thought the cheese reminded me of when you’re making something with cheese and it melts into the skillet and then turns crispy. Yep, kind of like that.
Beanitos White Bean Chips ($1.16) Poor Beanitos, they were shoved on top of the box and were flat as a pancake by the time they got to my house.
Turns out it didn’t really matter much, they were just in smaller pieces. I liked the flavor, like tangy lime and salt. I would buy these again.
Enlightened Sweet Cinnamon Roasted Broad Bean Crisps ($6.99) These are pretty high in fiber and are crispy broad beans with a cinnamon sugar coating.
At first, I was in love, I popped them in my mouth right after taking the picture (and before reading the ingredients). After my second mouthful, I correctly guessed that these had stevia in them, which always gives me a weird bitter aftertaste. If you’re OK with stevia then it shouldn’t be a problem.
I always enjoy the variety of snacks that I receive from my monthly Love With Food box! Sure, not all of them are winners in my book but then again, I have discovered lots of new favorites and you can’t do that without trying something new. I especially like that they are all individually packed and that I don’t have to buy a case of them online or spend a lot on a vending machine. There were 15 individual snacks (and the cinna beans had several servings in one bag) so this works out to about $1.33 per snack. Grab and go is also a big convenience factor and I love how easy it is to grab one and shove it in my bag on the way out the door!
