Love with Food December

The last of the Love with Food box posts. I was not happy that they changed prices on me after I locked in for a year and no refunds were offered and the quality of the items in the boxes were becoming less and less items that I actually would want to try… so I am moving on.  Try it Tuesday will never be the same.

Bunch o’ Berries Fruit Snacks

by Horizon Organic

Big fruity flavor comes in small packages. Don’t be surprised if the kids are craving these any time of day.

Can’t go wrong with fruit snacks and this was no exception!

Extreme Daily Dose of Dark Chocolate

by NibMor

This deliciously dark chocolate doesn’t mess around. 80% cocoa, organic and more than a little addictive.

LOTS of dark chocolate in this box and it all went to Mom!

Salmas Crackers

by Sanissimo

After tasting these deliciously crispy bites, you’ll swear there must be some magic hidden in those five ingredients.

These were pretty good!

Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Mini Bar

by LUNA

Chocolate, nuts and oats. A flavor combination that never gets old – especially when there are no GMOs and zero gluten.

More for Mom… she enjoyed.

Beef & Pork Pepperoni Seasoned Meat Stick

by Field Trip

13 units of Field Trip Beef & Pork Pepperoni Seasoned Meat Stick

The perfect boost of protein in a seasoned, salty package, with zero gluten and seriously addictive flavor.

This meat stick was nothing to write home about.  Decent.

Peppermint Bark Bar

by Baron Chocolatier

A flavor combination that the holidays just wouldn’t be the same without. But with no GMOs, there’s practically no guilt.

Also gave this to Mom. She liked it.

Baked Mac n’ Cheese Puffs

by Snikiddy

12 Bags of Zesty Baked Mac n’ Cheese Puffs by Snikiddy

The cheesy, comforting flavor you love in light, airy puffs you can take anywhere!

I’ve had these before as well and it takes a second to realize its not Mac and Cheese but they are good.

Ginger Snaps

by Lucy’s

12 Mouth Watering bags of Ginger Snaps by Lucy’s

Just sweet enough with a little kick of spice. Perfect for the season, or basically anytime you’re craving a cookie.

Love ginger snaps!

Love with Food November

My year with Love With Food is slowly coming to an end.  This is November’s box.  December will be the last one though I’m not sure when that review will be posted as I shuffled posts and these got pushed back because I am so slow at trying the snacks!

 

Cinnabon Popcorn

by Wise

Never be without the heavenly taste of cinnamon rolls again with this on-the-go poppable snack with all the sugary and comforting goodness you know and love.

I was hoping for more cinnamon taste on this popcorn, but it wasn’t bad.  Popcorn and Cinnabon are a few of my favorite things 🙂

Pretzel Crisps

by Snack Factory

Classic pretzel taste made into the perfect vehicle for any dip or spread. All it needs is a little imagination.

I’ve had these before and absolutely love them.  I’m tempted to buy a large bag of them, but also worried I may eat them all in one sitting.

Chocolate Bar

by AWAKE Chocolate

Like you needed another excuse to nom on some chocolate – but this is a great one. This bar has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, so say goodbye to the afternoon slump!

I didn’t feel much more AWAKE after eating this, but it was good.

SuperFruit Fruit Snacks

by Tasty Brand

12 Units of Tasty Brand Fruit Snacks

These are no ordinary fruit snacks: these are organic, acai and superfruit-boosted, perfect-for-any-age treats.

You can never go wrong with fruit snacks.

Peanut Butter Crackers

by Bell Plantation

Classic peanut butter taste, simple ingredients, and the perfect crunch. Get ready to meet your new favorite snack.

I’ve yet to try these, even though I am all about peanut butter! I’m sure I’ll like them.

Peanuts Power Pack

by Hubs

The perfect protein-packed power-up snack, with a touch of salt. Peanuts just got turned up.

Great protein pick me up, though a bit salty.

Chocolate Banana Bar

by Nutryttiva

12 Units of Chocolate Banana Bar by Nutryttiva

Don’t believe a bar made with just seven ingredients could be such an explosion of banana flavor? You will.

Mom tried this one and was not a fan.  I’m not sure what it is about us and anything in these boxes containing banana. *shrug*

Chocolate Ginger Chews

by GoOrganic

Rich and chocolate-y with a touch of spice, not to mention zero GMOs and 100% organic ingredients. No reason to feel guilty about splurging on a few of these.

These were great, just enough spice since I don’t really like spice that much and very tasty!

Love With Food : October

20161013_175209

We show love for the important people in our lives in a lot of different ways, and sometimes it might come off just a little bit… wicked. Maybe you love to tempt your friends and family with irresistible indulgences like cookies or candy?  Well, we think that’s the best type of wicked. So go ahead, be a little extra wicked this month with your Love with Food box… if you dare!

Sweet Chili & Sour Cream White Bean Chips
By Beanitos
Spicy and cool, salty and creamy – these chips pack in flavor like you wouldn’t believe

Mom tried these and enjoyed.

Garden Fresh Salsa White Bean Chips
By Beanitos
Taste meets genius in these chips with no need for dipping, and all the fresh spicy flavor you know and love built right in

Mom tried these as well but preferred the others.

Presidents Educational Snacks
By Dick + Jane Baking Company
Snacktime and learning all at once. What more could you want from a nut-free whole grain cracker?

I love all of these educational crackers that have come in my boxes. Taste great and you can learn too.

Almond Roca Buttercrunch Toffee
By Brown & Haley
While it’s hard to go wrong with chocolate candy, chocolate combine with almonds and toffee is about as right as candy could possibly be

This was very tasty.

Apple Caramel
By Annie B’s
This rich and buttery treat is the definition of indulgence. Is there any flavor combination more classic than caramel and apple, really?

Ooey, Gooey and delicious!

Original Chai Tea Latte Mix
By Oregon Chai
A warm blanket, Netflix and a cup of this soothing tea. Sounds like a perfect fall afternoon? We think so too.

Still waiting for the perfect afternoon for this but I am looking forward to trying it!

Fig Spread
by Divinia
Fruity and sweet, this Mediterranean treat is perfect to pair with cheese – although it’s really delicious with anything

Mom tried this. She loves fig.

Whole Wheat Snack Crackers
by Westminster Cracker Company
Don’t think getting whole wheat into your diet could be delicious? These poppable, crunchy bites are here to prove you oh-so-wrong.

Definitely yummy snack crackers.

Granola Bar
By AWAKE Energy
As much caffeine as a half a cup of coffee and zero artificial colors. Go ahead, give yourself a little boost

This was good, but I didn’t feel any sort of boost from it.

Love with Food September

 

20160913_183018

We never stop learning, no matter how old we are – whether it’s learning a new language, learning more about another culture, or just learning a new skill. But let’s face it, learning can be a hungry business! This month’s box is packed full of snacks that are perfect for enjoying while broadening your horizons. So go ahead – share your knowledge and share your snacks!

Organic Fruit Candies by GoOrganic
So good it’s hard to imagine they’re completely organic. Get ready to believe in miracles.

These were really good hard candies!

Sandwich Crackers by Lance
These are not your mama’s crackers. Real ingredients, real energy, and really delish.

Not a fan of cheese crackers, I prefer peanut butter, but these weren’t terrible.

Coco & Milk Classic Wafers by Loacker
A classic sweet combination wrapped in lighter-than-air wafers. So basically, heaven.

These were pretty good.

Bunches of Crunches Dark Chocolate Sea Salt with Chia by Bakery on Main
Granola meets dessert in these poppable, crunchable, irresitible snack.

Really liked this granola. A great mid day pick me up snack.

Caramel Apple Crisp Premium Puffed Corn by Cosmos Creations
Don’t think puffed corn could be so reminiscent of a classic comfort food dessert? Wrong.

These were probably the best in the box.

Organic Gummy Cherries by Black Forest Organic
The classic taste of cherries, made 1000% better as a gummy. Whoever said candy is just for kids never tried these.

These were really good but the suggested servings in the bag was 2.5.  That… didn’t happen.

Strawberry Raspberry & Walnut Bites by Orchard Bar
What could be easier than a snack bar? A snack bar that’s bite-sized! Not to mention gluten-free, 60% organic and non-GMO with NO artificial anything.

This was very very heavy on the raspberry so a bit on the sour side and I have little to no tolerance for that, but I enjoyed it.

*Also included was beef jerky which I can’t seem to find on the Love With Food site for details and I ate it first thing. It was a little bland compared to the slim jims I am used to, but wasn’t a bad snack.

Love With Food August

Toasted Coconut Toffee by Chimes
The creamy, caramel taste of toffee with a hint of fresh coconut milk. Drooling yet?

Since I am not a fan of coconut I gave these to my mom to try and she liked them.

Vanilla Powdered Peanut Butter
A little salty, a little sweet and all addictive – try it in your morning smoothie!

As of writing this I’ve yet to try it – but I am looking forward to soon.

Zesty Snack Mix by Sheffa
The perfect party snack – poppable, addictive, and energy-packed.

Another item snagged by Mom – she thought it was salty, but good/

Carnival Kettle Popcorners by Our Little Rebellion
These light, crunchy bites will transport you to a perfect day at the fair.

These kind of scared me at first – carnival kettle tortilla chips? But they were absolutely delicious

Crispy Rice Bar by EnviroKidz
They took the peanuts and gluten out, but kept in all of the yummy flavor.

I had a chocolate one with an adorable koala on it and it was very yummy.

Seaweed Snacks by Ocean’s Halo
Salty, perfectly crispy and unlike anything else. This will be the new favorite snack you never saw coming.

This one scared me so I gave it to my Mom to try and she loved it so much she bought more!

Fruit & Cream Smoothie Pops by Fru-licious
The irresistible smoothie taste you crave on those hot summer days is now available in your own freezer. Just pop this shelf-stable smoothie in your freezer and let the magic happen.

This was really good, I froze it and can’t complain about the tasty results!

Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies by Goodie Girl
The comforting taste and crunch of the cookie you love, without a single smidge of gluten.

Another item in this pack that scared me – but as usual – turned out to be very good!

Iced Tea Crystals by Pique Tea
The perfect refreshing summer drink is just one brew away.

Iced Tea is my favorite summer drink (ok, maybe even year round drink) and these crystals did not disappoint!

Love With Food July

20160715_162925

It’s the height of summer, which means that everyone is raring to get outside and enjoy all the sun, warm weather and freedom that this season has to offer. What pairs better with adventures than scrumptious snacks? Nothing,we say. That’s why we packed this month’s box full of bright, bold summer flavors that will be right alongside you are you hit the open road.

Barney Butter Snack Pack
Telling you what to eat this stuff with would be a disservice, because it’s good on everything. Fruit, crackers, toast – there’s no wrong choice.

Haven’t tried this yet, but I’m looking forward to it

Pure Growth Organic Popcorn
There’s popcorn and then there’s this organic, addictive, gluten-free stuff. Try it and tell us you can’t taste a difference.

I didn’t taste a difference… was I supposed to?

Pur Mints Mojito Lime Mint
These aspartame-free treats are no joke: Cool and refreshing with a big lime kick that feels like summer.

I am not a lime fan so I passed on trying these.

Luna Protein Berry Greek Yogurt Bar
The power of protein keeps you full and feeling good, so go ahead – indulge in the nougaty goodness of LUNA Protein for under 200 gluten-free calories

Shared this with my mom and we both enjoyed it.

Pretzel Perfection Twice-Baked Tomato Basil Pretzel Sticks
Crunchy, salty little bites of heaven with a touch of herbs and a taste that will have you reaching for more again and again.

One bite was all it took – for me to toss these in the trash. Not a fan.

Chef’s Cut Original Real Steak Jerky
Talk about a classic summertime snack. This jerky with the perfect touch of spice is easy to bring on the go, packed with energy and so scrumptious.

Probably my favorite item from this box! Very scrumptious.

Trujoy Sweets Organic Bunny Shaped Lollipop
Not only are these fruity treats all natural, but they’re totally adorable. Almost too cute to eat. Well, almost.

Definitely cute! And tasty.

Yumearth Naturals Sour Beans
The jelly bean taste you know and love, with a little something extra. All-natural never tasted so good.

Not a sour fan so my brother snagged these and enjoyed them.

Jimmybar
Simple ingredients that don’t mess around with any artificial stuff. No wonder this bar is so irresistible.

Another one I split with mom. She enjoyed it more than I did.

This month, share these scrumptios all-natural snacks with someone you love and celebrate all the flavors of summer yet to come!

Sinfully Thin Blue Corn Popcorn
Ever made popcorn for a “light snack” and eaten WAY too much? Hey, we’ve all been there. But with this all-natural stuff, there’s no need for guilt.

I enjoyed this blue popcorn!

Snapz originally crunchy premium apple crisps
You can’t get more all-natural than these crispy fruity bites made with real organic apples. Go ahead, have the whole bag.,

Shared these with Mom who enjoyed them and said “if they were at the store, id buy them”

Take your tea with a side of cookie indulgence. Buttery, dense and comforting, you’ll be looking for an excuse to have “tea” all the time.

Always a great day when shortbread is included in the box!

Torie & Howard Fruit Chews
Completely organic and all-natural, with genius flavor pairings made from real fruit. You’re going to want to savor these.

These were most enjoyable.

This was pretty good.

You Love Fruit Leather
Does dried fruit sound too simple to be your new favorite snack? You’ll never be so happy to be proven wrong by this sweet treat.

Another one that Mom tried and she didn’t like this one.

Wild Garden Sundried Tomato Hummus Dip
This stuff is so good, you’ll be tempted to just eat it straight from the package. Not that we’d blame you.

Mom snagged this one and liked it.

Snack Factory Original Pretzel Crisps
Everything you love about a cracker mixed perfectly with everything you love about a pretzel. Plus you can pair them with just about anything.

Been on a big pretzel kick this summer and these were great!

Love With Food Box April

20160414_164726

Joy is an almost perfect word for the almost indescribable idea of love. It’s pure happiness and utter excitement. And both of those things apply to delicious snacks too, right? Obviously. This month’s box is jam-packed full of goodies that we know you won’t be able to help loving. So spread the love (and joy) around!

 

Coconut Oil Kettle Cooked Potato Chips by Boulder Canyon
These will change everything you thought you knew about the humble potato chip – without any GMOs, cholesterol or gluten. Boom.

These were really great, a great addition to our memorial day cook out!

Fruit snacks by Go Organically
Organic. Authentic. Delicious. We believe Fruit Snacks should be made with real fruit. You’ll like what’s in it. You’ll love what’s not.

Brother tried these and enjoyed.

Black Rice Crackers by Laiki
Would you believe only three ingredients could make a cracker so addictive? Just one of these oh-so-simple crunchy snacks and you’ll be hooked.

Mom tried these… “they taste like nothing, but they are good. Not too salty. They are good” I tried one and have to agree.

Blueberry Acai Flax Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze by Munk Pack
Your preconceived notions about oatmeal are about to go down the drain with the first taste of this fruity, nutrition-packed deliciousness.

I haven’t had a chance to try this yet, but it was in another box and I enjoyed it so I am sure I will feel the same way once I get around to this one.

Green Tea Latte Candy by Bali’s Best
Your favorite refreshing drink made into a sweet-but-not-too-sweet, soothing, utterly mouthwatering morsel.

These were good. A little bit different since I’m not used to tea flavored candy but a nice change of pace.

Chocolate Chip Biscotti By Biscotti Di Suzy
Picture this: You + a warm cup of tea + this perfect crunchy, rich, sweet cookie. Sound too good to be true? Not anymore.

So good! Probably tied for my favorite in the box.

Gluten-Free Waffle by Honey Stinger
Waffles are’t just for breakfast anymore. Not when they’re a perfect balance of sweet, crispy, and gloriously gluten-free goodness.

The other favorite in the box. Can’t get enough waffles.

Banana Bar by Nutryttiva

You’re going to do a double take when you realize all this huge fruity flavor is packed into only two ingredients. True story.

This one grossed me out. It didn’t look appetizing and the lime included in it was probably what made me make such horrid faces once I did take a bite.  I didn’t manage to take more than that one bite.

Love With Food Box March

20160314_161021

This month, show someone you love how special they are and share these goodies. Then again, there’s nothing wrong with showing yourself a little love and keeping them!

Yummy Horizon fruit snacks are a hit with everyone. Certified organic and free artificial colors and preservatives, these make a great snack anytime.

Fruit snacks always seem to be my go-to for the first try in these boxes and these did not disappoint.

Rosemary and Sea Salt Port Clouds by Bacon’s Heir
Whoever says pork skins can’t be fancy has never been lucky enough to taste these addictive snacks. So share the wealth… or you know, just keep them.

Couldn’t get past eating one of these. 🙁

Lemon Wafer Bites by Dolcetto
Be prepared – these cookies are just the right balance of crispy layers and lemon-y goodness to make you wonder where they’ve been all your life

I think these were in a box once before and I enjoyed them then and now!

Original Naan Crisps by Stonefire Flatbreads
Authentically made, fire-baked, and addictively crunchy, these crisps are just begging for your favorite dip.

I think these were in a box before too.  I ate them without dip, but just as good!

Almond Roca Buttercrunch Toffee with Almonds by Brown & Haley
Watch out: This is not a candy for the faint of heart. This is pure almond-y, rich. chocolate. indulgence. You were warned.

These were really good! Two thumbs up

Shared this one with Mom. She approved.

Pitted Greek Olive Mix by Olympos
Everyone could use a little exotic Mediterranean flavor to spice up your day every once in a while, right? These olives are the answer.

Another one Mom tried. Thought they were too salty.

Peppermint Salt Water Taffy by Salty Road
There aren’t many ways to improve upon this magic combination of sweet and salty, but adding a refreshing hint of peppermint is one of them.

Brother tried this – and like it.
