This month’s theme for their Tasting Box was “Love is Kind”, an excerpt from their insert’s message: “It’s a new year, which means a new chance to live your best life, and what better way to start that with a little kindness?”
Inside the box:
- Corn and Sea Salt Chips by The Better Chip: “Who knew a chip so simple would be so addictively delicious. The perfect partner for salsa or queso, although you’ll love them on their own. Non-gmo, gluten free, vegan, and dairy free.”
- Mini chocolate by Ritter Sport: “The only thing wrong with these bites of chocolate-wrapped heaven? You’ll always be left wanting another. Or three.” Yeah, no kidding! There was only ONE in the box 🙁
- Handmade Sea Salt Caramel by Annie B’s: “A balance of rich sweetness and salt makes this the perfect bite of indulgence after a long day. Gluten free.” This one was yummy, but nothing different than what I’ve tasted before in a lightly salted caramel.
- Cherry Flavored Hard Candies by Goorganic: “Ready for a candy that packs an irresistible taste, no GMOs, and organic ingredients into one bite? The wait is over. Gluten free, non-GMO, vegan, organic, dairy-free”
- Granola Cookie 2 Pack by Nothing’ But Foods: “The kids will think they’re pulling one over on you. You’ll know they’re eating oats, nuts and all the good-for-you stuff they THINK they don’t like. Gluten free, non-GMO”
- Original Premium Smoked Pork Snack Stick by Dimario Foods: “If you think this smoky, salty, scrumptious stuff is going to be like the boring jerky you’re used to, you’ve got another thing coming. Dairy free.” I’ve had something similar before, tastes a little like andouille sausage, but in a mini slim-jim form.
- Mini Wafers by Loacker: “Light and indulgent at the same time – the perfect dessert to pair with a cup of coffee, although you’ll probably go back for more.” Again, I would definitely go back for more, but there was only one.
- Tomato & Onion Bruschetta by Dipin: “Tired of mindlessly munching on the same boring old crackers? Easy fix, just dip them in this flavorful Mediterranean dip and be amazed. Gluten free, vegan, dairy-free.”
So there were things in the box that I liked – of course the sweets -chocolate, wafers, and caramel, but for the hard candies, which I won’t touch as I don’t like hard candies in general. I haven’t tried the cookies or chips and bruschetta yet. I wish for the smaller items, they’d put more than one, but I guess since this IS a tasting box…
This marks the last box I’m getting from Love With Food, it’s not because it was bad or anything like that, but it just wasn’t for me and was time to rotate to a different food box subscription. My experience with this subscription was on the fence, they had things that I liked and things that I really didn’t care for, so I don’t think I’ll resub in the future.
However, I love that they donate to food banks around the US and admire their goal to reach one million meals donated. As a company they have a great mission.
If you’d like to sub up with Love With Food, here’s the link (you can get 40% off your first box). It starts at $7.99 per month for their tasting box, but they have other plans and boxes available.
