Hatch Has Met Its Match Popcorn by Crave Canyon – One 1 oz bag; value: $1.80
Heart-Tee by Wild Hibiscus Flower Co. – 1 tea bag; value: $.40
Organic Energy Bar by BumbleBar – 1.4 oz bar; value: $1.99
The Hatch Has Met Its Match popcorn is really tasty! It does have a small kick of spicy heat at the end, which is good to know if you are really sensitive to that kind of thing. Also, it’s non-GMO!
This Bumblebar Organic Energy Bar is really chewy and has lots of seeds and nuts. You can really taste cinnamon, sesame, and almond. I was happy to see that it’s gluten free, too! Bumblebar is also a company that is dedicated to ethical sourcing.
Fiordifrutta Organix Fruit Spread by Rigoni Di Asiago – One .8 oz packet; value: $.65
Orchard Blend by Sensible Foods – One .75 oz bag; value: $1.70
I can tell you exactly how this fruit spread is made; how much food is made through processes that you don’t even know these days? This is made from actual fruit, slow cooked into a spread and sweetened with organic wild apple juice and zero added sugar. The only thing that I was confused by was that the outside packaging is labeled specifically with the Strawberry & Wild Strawberry flavor, but my packet was Apricot. I think that may be just how the general packaging is, but it makes you have to work to see which flavor you’re about to open.
This orchard blend is another product that is just fruit – and fruit only! The whole pack is only 70 calories and they’re really great, crunchy fruit chips. They’re also kosher and gluten-free.
Almonds with Cranberries, Honey, and Sea Salt by Sehale Snacks – .75 oz; value: $1.25
Honey Waffle by Meli – 30g; $1.25
Vintage Bee Mini Creamed Honey with Chocolate Mint – .35 oz; value: $.40
I don’t usually care for snacking on almonds, but this snack pack from Sehale Snacks had cranberries and sea salt which made a world of a difference in flavor. I loved these and plan to buy more!
Initially, I was almost scared to try something that had honey, chocolate, and mint all together. However, this honey from Vintage Bee was actually pretty good! Personally, though, I was just not a fan of the mint. I could definitely see myself enjoying it more without the mint flavor.
The Verdict: One thing Love With Food always seems to do right is have a great combination of savory and sweet snacks to try. This month’s value was about $9.50; so far my experience with this box hasn’t been outstanding value, but the point is for excellent curation and for letting you try organic and natural snacks and treats that are new to you – so I’m still happy with this box!
