The Goods

Love With Food January 2017

Original Potato Chips–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Nut Free, Vegan, Vegetarian

You can’t beat a classic like a crispy, salty potato chip – especially when the ingredient list is only four items long.

I love the crunchiness of chips so these are a total win! I love getting healthy versions of the snacks I like. They are also really tasty, definitely a great alternative.

Honey Stinger Organic Waffle–Organic, Vegetarian

No, really. This deliciously chocolate-y treat is the perfect fuel for the kids’ busiest days. It’s a win-win.

Coffee Trio TruffleCremes

The perfect kick of rich chocolate with a hint of a coffee kick. Get ready to taste your next candy obsession.

Creme de Pirolouline–Vegetarian

Crispy wafer, dark chocolate in the perfect shaped cookie to make you look super fancy. Your sweet tooth is about to lose its mind.

This Truvia sample didn’t really go with the item in the next picture, so I’m not exactly sure what it is. That’s an item that we ended up just throwing out this month. I’m excited to try the waffle though and the other items are right up Ian’s alley!

Emmy’s Dark Cacao–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, GMO Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian

Just the right touch of sweet with the perfect touch of chocolate – and exactly zero hints of artificial anything.

Emmy’s Vanilla Bean–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, GMO Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian

Warm vanilla flavor + sweet coconut – GMOs and gluten = maybe the most perfect cookie ever.

Aloha Chocolate Blend Supplement–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, GMO Free, Organic, Soy Free, Vegan, Vegetarian

Hey, sometimes it’s hard getting your veggies every day. This supplement has your back – not to mention a great taste.

Truvia–Dairy Free, Nut Free, Soy Free, Vegan, Vegetarian

Why use sugar when you can use a completely natural, ZERO-calorie substitute that is just as superbly sweet.

I wasn’t interested in the Emmy’s snacks, so Ian took one and the other one went into my box of reject snacks. I’m curious to try the other items. I don’t usually have supplements, but I’m thinking it would be good for a chocolate peanut butter smoothie! I’m iffy on the Truvia, I don’t really use sweeteners for anything, but I will hold on to it for the time being.

Granola–Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Gmo Free, Nut Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, Soy Free

Just try to keep from eating the whole bag of this allergen-friendly, crunchy, sweet treat all in one sitting!

Ginger Honey Crystals & Ginger Candy–Dairy Free, Vegetarian

If you weren’t hooked on the uniquely spicy and sweet taste of ginger already, you’re about to be.

Ian got both of these products. He LOVED the granola and actually checked to see if he could get more somewhere. He’s also the tea drinker in the household, so I’m sure he will find use in the ginger honey. He’s also more preventative with colds than I am, so this seems like it would work well for that.

Smart Crackers–Dairy Free, GMO Free, Nut Free, Organic

What makes a cracker smart? Half a serving of veggies per serving. Not that you’d even know it. Go on. Just try one and get back to us.

I haven’t tried these yet, but I’m definitely curious!

Love With Food January 2017

Quinoa Chocolate Chip–Gluten Free

This isn’t a gluten-free cookie. This is a cookie makde without gluten, but with all of the taste you love. Taste it and you’ll see the difference.

Thinables–Kosher, Vegetarian

Packed with fiber and half the calories of other cookies (but all of the sweet goodness you love), these cookies are a win-win-win.

I’ve had the Goodie Girl brand before. They weren’t anything special and definitely not a replacement for the real thing. I can see these being a decent alternative though. It’s definitely better than nothing! I also really enjoy cinnamon flavoring, so while I haven’t tried the Thinables yet, I definitely will.

Peanut Butter Crunch–Gluten Free, Kosher, Vegetarian

The classic peanut butter/chocolate combo gets a kick of crunch. Get ready to get obsessed.

Milk Chocolate–Gluten Free, Kosher, Vegetarian

Melt-in-your mouth chocolatey taste with a crunch you’ll never be able to quit. Don’t leave this stuff unattended for too long.

So far I’ve had the milk chocolate (yay for milk chocolate!) and it was pretty good. A bit chewy/sticky, but it made for a great snack.

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed this month’s box! There was a great mix of sweet and salty items, and a mix of Andrea and Ian items, which is always a bonus! I had actually canceled this sub before receiving this box in an effort to mix things up a bit, but I resubscribed after realizing just how much I enjoy this box. It gives me enough treats for the month that I don’t have to go seek out items at the grocery store, and it’s probably much healthier than what I would pick out!
