Love with Food Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Feb 2015 MardiGras

Each box comes with a brochure detailing the theme and the items selected for the month. This month’s theme is Mardi Gras, and the box (appropriately) included a string of plastic beads.

The brochure provides a quick description of the items included in the box and clearly outlines which items are gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, etc. I like that they display this information so prominently.

Love with Food Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Feb 2015 Chips

Snikiddy Baked Mac N’ Cheese Puffs– .75 oz, value $.94

Boulder Canyon Olive Oil Kettle Cooked Potato Chips– 1.5 oz, value $.85

I love cheese puffs, and these were delicious. They’re baked, in addition to being non-GMO and gluten free, but I thought they tasted just like (or better than) their fried counterparts. I’ll be keeping an eye out for these in the grocery store.

The kettle chips were also really tasty- and extra crispy like I expect good kettle chips to be.  They’re also fried in olive oil and free from cholesterol, trans fats, and MSG.

Love with Food Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Feb 2015 Rise

Dolcetto Petites Lemon Wafer Bites– .7 oz, value $.83

Rise Almond Honey Protein Bar– .97 oz, value $1.04

Dilettante Toffee Crunch– 2 candies, value $.87

I was so excited to try these lemon wafer bites that I ripped open the package a little too vigorously and sent them flying across the room. Oops! (Luckily, I managed to salvage most of them.) Each bite is a crispy wafer pouch filled with lemon cream. The texture and flavor of the wafer is similar to Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes, and I thought the slightly tart lemon filling was nicely in balance with the sweeter cookie shell.

The Rise protein bar contains only 3 ingredients: almonds, honey, and whey protein. I think that’s incredible! I’ll admit that it wasn’t the prettiest protein bar I’ve seen (it looks like a log of dried peanut butter), but the flavor was excellent. It tastes exactly like what it’s made from.

These Dilettante Toffee Crunch Truffle Cremes are delicious. They’re silky and chocolaty with crunchy toffee bites mixed into the filling.

Love with Food Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Feb 2015 Monbana

Chocolatiere Monbana Hot Chocolate– 1 sachet, value $.69

Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning– 2 packets, value $.04

Divine Milk Chocolate– 2 .18 oz candies, value $.50

This hot chocolate was created by French Master chocolatiers using 32% chocolate. In the spirit of full disclosure, I feel I should admit that I am a big hot chocolate snob. I make it with real chocolate, so powdered hot chocolate mixes rarely do it for me. That said, I thought this one wasn’t bad, and it gets pretty solid reviews (4/5) in the Love with Food shop.

One of my best friends is from New Orleans, and she puts Tony Chachere’s on EVERYTHING. So, for me, these little packets were perfect for the Mardi Gras theme. If you haven’t tried it before, the Creole seasoning is a mix of salt, garlic, red pepper, and other spices. You use it like a seasoned salt. Thanks to my friend, I’ve tried it on lots of foods before, but I particularly like it on French fries and scrambled eggs.

Divine Chocolate is the only fairtrade chocolate company owned by its cocoa farmers, and I think it’s always nice to know that the people behind a product are receiving a fair wage. These milk chocolate pieces are smooth and creamy, but my preferences lean more toward dark chocolate. I think my local Whole Foods carries Divine Chocolate, so I might pick up a dark chocolate bar to try the next time I’m there.

Love with Food Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Feb 2015 Coupons

As always, Love with Food included a handful of coupons and promo cards.

Verdict: Overall, I really enjoyed this Love with Food box. I thought the Mardi Gras theme was fun, and I like that it was something a little different. (Valentine’s Day themes seem to be most popular in February, but can be tricky if subscribers don’t receive their boxes in time for the holiday.) Given the theme, I think it would have been nice to see another New Orleans or Louisiana brand featured, but that’s just a matter of personal preference. The value of the items adds up to $5.76, so if you’re looking for a high-value snack box, this isn’t it. That being said, I think Love with Food is good at choosing snacks that are delicious, and I like that their online store makes it easy to order more. It’s also nice to know that for each box purchased the company will donate a meal to a hungry American child. For me, knowing that my snacking has a charitable impact helps make up for the lower-than-ideal value of the box.

What do you think about the February Love with Food box?

  1. I agree the deluxe box used to be filled with goodies and now it seems like I’m getting a lot of duplicates and am no longer receiving anything new. I’ll give it one more month and if it’s still disappointing I’ll cancel.

  2. This subscription is a little disappointing to me after receiving Urthbox and Naturebox. The snacks seem like pure junk (mostly chips and chocolate), and the value is low. I enjoy seeing new non-GMO and natural options, but once my subscription expires I will be cancelling.

  3. Loved the snacks, as always, but bummed that I just got mine today. I really could have used that seasoning yesterday in my chicken gumbo. And I guess I’ll hang on to the beads until next year…

  4. My box arrived today which I opened up in front of my boys. Not much left LOL.

  5. I absolutely love this box, I mainly buy it for my 2 year old who eats everything and I just love how every month is different so that way she doesn’t get tired of the same snack every month and its a lot healthier then pringles and lays

  6. I enjoyed getting this box. All the snacks were yummy, though the only real novel one was the mac & cheese puffs. But it’s a very low value box – so I unsubscribed after my first box.

  7. I was subscribed to this and did enjoy many of the items. However, the value just isn’t there and there are many local places for me to purchase snacks. So I did not renew.

  8. I don’t know why I love this subscription so much since the value is always low. I still just love it! lol Maybe it’s because I rarely dislike any of the snacks they choose, and I munch on them over a period of several days. And agreed, that 3-ingredient bar was delicious!

  9. I really liked this box, but the value seems especially low. I’ve bought Boulder potato chips before and never for 84 cents, they were at least $1.50 for a single serve package. But I guess if you ordered all the items from Love With Food’s website it would be really cheap. That said, I still love this subscription and love getting introduced to new snacks. The deluxe box had pork rinds and cupcake batter cookie chips, like the cookie chips from last month that were delicious.
