The Products: 8+ snacks that are organic, all natural, GMO-free, gluten-free, or free from artificial ingredients
Ships to: US
Each box comes with a brochure detailing the theme and the items selected for the month. This month’s theme is “Starry Nights,” and the box comes with a reminder to celebrate the quiet moments in life.
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.
This month’s box also included a Love with Food “Snacking Star” magnet.
Garlic Olive Oil Pasta Chips by Vintage Italia (1 oz.)- value $.77
Mini Chocolate Chunk Cookies by Back to Nature (1.25 oz.)- value $.67
I’ve tried Pasta Chips before (in another flavor), and I think they’re tasty. They’re baked, and the texture is crisp and crunchy. I like this flavor a lot, but it’s definitely not for the faint of heart- these chips were very garlicky!
Back to Nature Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies are free from corn syrup and made using rainforest alliance certified chocolate chips. They’re small and crunchy. They were good, but I tend to prefer soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies.
Hummus and Quinoa Chip Snack Pack by Wild Garden (2.26 oz.)- value $2.50
This gluten free snack pack came with a packet of quinoa chips and a squeezable container of hummus. The hummus was tangy, which I liked, and I thought it went well with the quinoa chips. I love the convenience of the squeezable hummus pack, and I appreciate how easy this would be to eat on the go.
Green Tea Tropical Tea by Mighty Leaf (1 bag)- value $.42
Sour Beans by Yum Earth Naturals (20 g.)- value $.65
Now that the weather has turned warm, I’m craving iced tea instead of hot. I’m looking forward to drinking this cold. I think the tropical flavors will make a very refreshing iced tea.
I love sour gummies, and I’m so happy to have discovered a natural version of my favorite candy! Sour Beans are made with real fruit extracts, no artificial dyes or flavors, and contain 100% RDA of vitamin C. They’re not quite as puckering as other candies (Sour Patch Kids, for example), but I still really enjoyed them.
Pure Butter Shortbread by Walkers (1 oz.)- value $.71
Lemon Zest Luna Bar Mini (.81 oz)- value $.63
I’m a little surprised but see Walker’s Shortbread in this month’s box but certainly not disappointed! These cookies are delicious, and I’m always happy to have more on hand to serve alongside a cup of tea.
Luna Bars are created just for women, with a special balance of vitamins and minerals. For a healthy late-night treat, Love with Food suggests swapping milk and cookies for one of these mini bars.
As always, Love with Food included a handful of coupons and promo cards.
Verdict: I enjoyed this month’s Love with Food Tasting Box. I was really excited to discover the Sour Beans, and I thought the hummus snack pack was a fun addition. Sadly, the box seemed a little light to me this month. By my count, I only received 7 snacks instead of the usual 8+. I don’t mind too much (the snack pack could technically count as two snacks, I suppose), but I thought it was worth mentioning. This month, the value comes to just over $6. The Love with Food Tasting Box doesn’t provide sky-high value, but I think it’s a great way to discover products that are healthy, delicious, and junk-free. 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.
