Love With Food February 2017

Love with Food (referral link) is a US based monthly snack box that looks for the most unique, organic or all-natural snacks. There are no artificial colors or flavors, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, or high fructose corn syrup. There are three different box options:

Tasting Box (US only) free shipping, 8+ snacks, donates 1 meal to hungry children–$10/month

Deluxe Box (US & International) free US shipping, $3.99 International,  16-20 new snacks each month, donates 2 meals to hungry children–$19.95/month

Gluten Free Box (Us & International) free US shipping, $3.99 International for the first 5000 sign-ups, 10-12 celiac safe & mostly dairy free snacks, donates 2 meals to hungry children–$24.99/month

Each purchase earns you points that you can then redeem towards free boxes or products. Charges go through on the first of the month, regardless of when you sign up for your first box.

This months theme was “Follow Your Heart”. They say: “It’s just three words, but following your heart is no small thing! Whether it’s hunting for a new career, starting a relationship, or simply resolving to do something you’ve never done before, following your heart takes courage and strength – and, let’s face it, some seriously good snacks to keep you motivated. Consider this month’s box as fuel for following your heart wherever it may take you! 

The Goods

Too Berry Blueberry Lollipop–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
Is it possible for a lollipop to taste TOO much like blueberry? We think not. And we know you’ll agree after tasting this one.

Strawberry Smash Lollipop–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
Sure, this might be candy, but after tasting the big strawberry flavor of these pops, everyone will be making an excuse to try one.

Googly Grape Lollipop–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
There’s a reason why lollipops are a classic treat. This is the reason why.

Pomegranate Pucker Lollipop–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
This ain’t your mother’s lollipop. Get ready for your inner kid to fall in love with pomegranate.

Watermelon Lollipop–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
Of course, you’re totally over lollipops. They’re for kids. Except this one, which is delicious enough for anyone.

Seriously, how amazing do all of these flavors sound? A sucker is a great treat when you’re wanting something sweet. It’s lower calorie and lasts for awhile, which helps you snack less!

Lemon Snackroons–Dairy Free, GMO Free, Organic, Soy Free, Vegetarian
The one problem with these lusciously lemon bites? No GMOs, gluten or processed stuff.

Milk Caramel Truffle Pig’let–Gluten Free, Vegetarian
Delectable caramel with smooth milk chocolate. The only thing wrong with this truffle is that it’s only one bite!

Dark Peppermint Truffle Pig’let–Gluten Free, Vegetarian
The perfect single bite of rich dark chocolate and peppermint. It’s a classic for a reason.

I’m definitely excited for the milk caramel truffle, but I gave the other two to Ian.

Seaweed Crisps–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian
Still not sure about seaweed? These fresh, crispy snacks will make you a forever fan.

I got some seaweed treats awhile ago, but never got the courage to eat them and eventually I threw them out. Let’s see if I can work up the courage this round! It definitely does intrigue me.

Nut Thins–Gluten Free, Vegetarian
The perfect foundation for cheese, fruit, or your favorite dip awaits.

Baked Mac n’ Cheese Puffs–GMO Free, Vegetarian
Because who doesn’t want the taste of mac and cheese 24/7.

I don’t dip my crackers, but I think I will enjoy the Nut Thins on their own. I’m also a fan of sea salt so I have high hopes! Now, don’t get me started on the Mac n’ Cheese Puffs. I haven’t tried them yet, but I am SO excited to. This is definitely my type of snack.

Tomato Basic Chickpeatos–Gluten Free, Dairy Free, GMO Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
If you’re still behind the times and think chickpeas can’t be a grab and go snack, these crunchy bites will catch you up.

Mint Honey Pattie–GMO Free, Kosher, Organic, Soy Free, Vegetarian
Your eyes don’t deceive you. These treats only have three ingredients – not that the taste would ever give that away.

I like chickpeas, but I’m not as big on the basil flavoring. These will likely also end up going to Ian. As for the other snack, I’m intrigued by the combination of mint and honey. I like peppermint patties so I’m curious how the honey flavor will mesh with that.

Chipotle BBQ Pretzel Sticks–Dairy Free, Vegan, Vegetarian
Crunchy pretzels with a smoky twist. Just try not to eat the whole bag in one sitting.

Cinnamon French Toast Protein Chips–Dairy Free, GMO Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
You know how they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day? These sweet, crunchy, energy-packed snacks are like breakfast anytime.

Pretzels. Chipotle. Need I say more? The protein chips are also interesting. Cinnamon French Toast sounds like a great combination, and it seems like a good way to get more protein!

Salted Caramel Brownie Brittle with Dark Drizzle–Vegetarian
Your dreams of taking brownies on the go has come true. Plus caramel.

I’m going to have to see how prominent the dark chocolate drizzle is, but the salted caramel sounds delicious. I’m excited for these!

 

Mini Cookie Stash–GMO Free, Kosher, Nut Free, Vegetarian
Not only sweet, crunchy and delicious, but also completely adorable.

How fun are these cookies? Butter Cookies are also generally delicious, and it seems like most treats made in Belgium are tasty.

Final Thoughts

This was such a great month! There are a few treats I won’t be eating, but generally this was a total win. They have been doing great with offering a variety of different treats with chocolate, chips, crackers, sweet, salty etc. I’m going to enjoy eating these snacks while I’m following my heart and accomplishing some goals!
