Love With Food January 2015 Review and Unboxing, Plus get a FREE BOX!

 Love With Food is one of those subscriptions I've been getting on and off for quite some time, but I rarely get around do doing a review for it! I feel like since I recently canceled a couple of the snack boxes I was getting, it's now time to give a little spotlight to a really affordable, fun, snack box that also gives back with every box sold! Plus, they give away free boxes for the first month...and that kind of makes me love them! ;)

The Deets
Love with Food is a $10 a month (+$2 shipping) subscription box that features organic and/or all natural snacks delivered to you monthly. For every box sold, they donate a meal to a food bank in an effort to support the end of child hunger. I think it's an absolutely wonderful cause and makes me feel good about subscribing to them!

Get a Free Box!
 Love with Food offers new subscribers their first box for free! (You just pay $2 shipping) and you can cancel at anytime with the quick click of a button on their site. If you want to try one out for yourself, you can do so by using THIS LINK.

This month's theme was "Live, Laugh, Restore" and it contained 8 different snacks!
What does 2015 have in store? All good things! While now's the time for New Years resolutions and looking forward, give yourlsef a little love for what you've already achieved. With the purchase of this box, you helped to feed a hungry child. If that's not a great way to start off the New Year, we're not sure what is!
Love With Food always includes lots of coupons and information on the snacks featured in their box. This month, there was also a $40 voucher for hellofresh.com, which is awesome!

Wai Lana Cassava Pops
Ok I LOVED this snack! These taste a lot like a potato chip and popcorn had a baby. They have 70% less fat than regular potato chips, and only 100 calories! The ingredients are few (cassava, tapioca starch, sunflower oil, sea salt, cane sugar, sesame) and the taste is big! Seriously I would never crave a greasy chip again if I had these on hand. I'm definitely picking up more of these from the Love With Food website!
Somersault Snack Company: Somersaults in "Salty Pepper" 
If you like sunflower seeds, you will absolutely love this snack! They kind of look like little bite-sized cookies, only their made from sunflower seeds and grains. This flavor is intense, so if you're not into super-peppery things, these might not be for you. The first few I ate were a nice mix of salt and pepper, but toward the end of the bag, I needed a drink like never before! Not my favorite snack in the box, but they were pretty tasty before they got too intense.

Big Slice: "Energy" Kettle Cooked Apples in "Raspberry Hibiscus & Green Coffee Extract"
I've seen these kettle-cooked apples around recently, so I was happy to see them in the box this month. This Raspberry hibiscus and green coffee extract flavor sounded like the least enticing of them all, but My fiance was more than willing to dig into these first. They're kind of mildly sweet, but there isn't a very distinctive flavor here. Definitely not bad-tasting at all, but more of a basic apple taste. With such a weird flavor profile I thought they'd be much different. I do like how the bag is resealable, and I am pretty tempted to try the cinnamon french toast flavor of these!
Luna: Chocolate Dipped Coconut Mini Bar
Luna bars have been around forever. Some of them are great, and some are pretty gross in my opinion. This one was practically sinful! I am usually iffy on coconut. I'm not into Mounds/Almond Joy type things but I love coconut flavor in my desserts. This bar was super delicious, chocolately and a little coconutty. Perfect treat to keep you going after a workout or while you're running errands!
Stash Tea: "Breakfast in Paris" Tea Bag 
I was admittedly a little bummed to see a singular Stash tea bag here. This brand is easily accessible in almost every grocery store I shop at, and they're pretty low-price. I would have rather tried some hard-to-find artisan tea, or at least have a few bags of this one, but hey- I'll toss it in the tea jar, where I keep all the other tea bag samples I get! 
Bobalu: In-Shell Almonds
I love nuts and seeds. My Fiance jokes that I'm like a little squirrel because I'm always nibbling on cashews or sunflower seeds! I do love almonds when they're mixed with something else (like chocolate!) but I'm not too keen on them on their own. This is a bag of salted, in-shell almonds obviously, so they're really not my thing. Not a bad thing to get in a box though! I just wish they were pistachios or cashews! 
Britt: Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs
Oh my gosh, these should just be called little bits of heaven! These are made with cacao that comes straight from the Costa Rican rainforest. They're like crunchy little dark chocolate bits that taste best a few at a time. The chocolate is dark and the natural cacao can be a bit bitter if you dump these in your mouth in large quantities. The chocolate is absolutely delicious though, and I've already bookmarked these so I can pick more up asap!
Alter Ego: Velvet Truffle 
This truffle is made with Peruvian chocolate, is 99.97% organic and 81% fair trade. It's a lighter chocolate that has a caramel flavor with a slight vanilla undertone to it. Absolutely delicious, and perfect for someone who likes a milder chocolate!
Overall Thoughts
This month's box was packed with snacks and lots of fantastic coupons! While there was no particular theme with the snacks themselves this month, I found that let there be a much wider variety. Awesome selection of sweet and savory, and I even found some snacks I liked enough to buy more of, which doesn't happen often! All in all, a very successful Love With Food box! So much so, that instead of canceling and subscribing month-to-month, I think I'm going to let my subscription roll into February! Hoping for a Valentines Day box with lots of Chocolatey goodness!

Don't Forget!

  1. I'm jealous of pretty much everything in this box. This is reminding me I need to hunt down Somersaults! I tried them in a couple of Vegan Cuts boxes and loved them.

    1. I definitely thought this was a great box, especially for $12 shipped, it's way too good to pass up. The Somersaults were awesome! I ate too many of them at once and whoo were they peppery, but still very tasty!
