They offer a smaller “tasting” box with 8+ snacks per month, a “deluxe” box with 16-20 snacks per month, and a gluten free box with 10-15 gluten free snacks per month. This is a review of the deluxe box.

Each Love with Food box comes with a brochure listing all the products. I really like that they list all the ingredients here and indicate which are vegan, gluten free, etc.
Wellaby’s Cheese Ups (0.9 oz x 2 bags) – Value $2.24
These were hollow but they *looked* big, which was almost enough to fool me into feeling like I had eaten more than I really had. Plus, cheese flavor is almost always an instant win for me.
Dolcetto Petites Lemon Wafer Bites (0.7 oz x 2 bags) – Value $1.33
I think we had another flavor of these some time ago. They’re crispy on the outside and have lemon filling. I was really in the mood for sweets one day and these hit the spot without having too many calories.
Lundberg Sriracha Rice Chips (1.5 oz) – Value $1.08
I’ve had these before in another flavor. Although I love Lundberg rice and buy it regularly, I’m not sold on these chips. The texture is too chewy and not chip-like enough.
Horizon Organic Fruit Snacks (0.8 oz x 2) – Value $1.81
Always happy to get vegetarian gummies. These did stick to my teeth pretty badly, though.
Sensible Foods Apple Harvest Crunch Dried Fruit (0.32 oz) – Value $0.90
This is a pretty simple snack, just freeze dried apples. They were good, and I like the small size of the package for limiting sugar intake, but there is not much making them stand out to me in a sea of similar products.
Sensible foods Roasted Edamame Crunch Dried Snacks (0.65 oz) – Value $0.81
These had great protein and fiber levels and were very low in salt. Unfortunately, I didn’t think they had much flavor, either. A little more salt would’ve helped, I think.
Brown & Haley Almond Roca Buttercrunch Toffee (0.42 oz) – Value $0.21
Of course this was gone in two seconds. I’m normally not too excited about toffee (and to be honest, it was the chocolate that got me…), but this was actually pretty good, even with a strong toffee flavor.
Woodstock MiniMe’s Organic Rice Bites (2.1 oz) – Value $1.25
These are basically miniature rice cakes with one side coated in chocolate. If you like rice cakes, they feel decadent. If you don’t like rice cakes, coating one side in chocolate is probably not going to make you come around…
Pork Clouds Fried Pork Skins in Rosemary and Sea Salt (0.7 oz) – Value $2.33
I guess this is the risk you take when subscribing to most food boxes – the chance of a non-vegetarian item. I left these in the kitchen at work and they disappeared within a day.
Stonefire Naan Crisps (0.5 oz) – Value $0.42
These reminded me of how much I miss going to Indian restaurants. (There’s not a good one near where I live now without a long drive). And they’re pretty good, even without any dip.
Pork Clouds Fried Pork Skins in Malabar Black Pepper (0.7 oz) – Value $2.33
This is another one that went on the office kitchen table. (I don’t eat meat and my fiancé isn’t interested in pork rinds).
Enlightened Roasted Broad Beans in Sea Salt (1 oz) – Value $1
I enjoyed these. They had protein, too, but were more flavorful than the edamame. I would buy these again.
Smashpack Protein Pack in Orange Peach (5 oz) – Value $3
OK, I was not a fan of this. It is an energy bar in pouch form. It definitely tasted like orange and peach. But. It had the texture of body cream and there was some odd cheesy undertone (this is mostly made from whey protein) that I couldn’t quite place.
Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter (0.6 oz) – Value $0.82
Coincidentally, it was peanut butter sandwich week for lunch (we have a rotation). I used this instead of peanut butter one day. It was good (but then, I love almonds!).
Every box comes with some coupons and/or product literature.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $19.53 for the March 2016 Love with Food Deluxe Box. That is pretty close to the value of the box and about what I’ve come to expect from Love with Food. Keep in mind they have deals available all the time and that you can review the items in your box for points that can be used for further snacks in the Love with Food shop. I liked some of the new items quite a bit (the roasted broad beans and the toffee were special favorites) and most of the brands were new to me, so I’m happy.
