Love with Food Deluxe Box Review + Coupon – April 2016
Love with Food is a monthly snack and food sampling subscription box. They send only natural and organic snacks and donate a meal to charity for each box sold. 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.
Nature’s Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar (1 oz x 2) – Value $1.24
These are like Raspberry Newtons only much, much better. I’ve had a lot of Nature’s Bakery snacks from subscription boxes and I pretty much like all of them.
Nutryttiva Banana Bar (1.06 oz x 2) – Value $2
I’ve had these quite a few times from Vegan Cuts (I think). They do taste like banana although it’s a bit more satisfying to eat a real banana. (On the other hand, these have a much longer shelf life…)
Bali’s Best Tea Candy in Green Tea Latte (3 candies) – Value $0.36
There are usually a few small candies in a Love with Food box. These are new to me and they were fun to try, although I am not usually a fan of tea flavors with sugar and milk.
Pasta Chips in Rosemary (1 oz) – Value $0.90
Pasta Chips are a food subscription box staple. I’ve never actually seen them in a store but I will happily eat them when they come. They are more like crackers to me (just made from semolina flour instead of regular wheat flour). This is a new flavor that isn’t available to buy yet so I’ve just listed a price from other flavors.
Rhythm Superfoods Roasted Kale in Smoky Bacon (0.75 oz) – Value $5.77 (?)
These are vegan so there’s no actual bacon in them! To me, they mostly tasted like barbecue potato chips (which is a good thing). Like most kale chips, they are super low in calories, which is also nice. I can’t find these on the Rhythm Superfoods site or the Love with Food shop so I guess they are another new flavor. I took the price from an Amazon listing of their kale chips which I assume have a similar value.
Laiki Black Rice Crackers (0.74 oz x 2) – Value $2.50
I’ve had these before and I like them. They remind me a bit of Bugles in terms of texture.
Boulder Canyon Coconut Oil Kettle Cooked Potato Chips in Sea Salt (1.25 oz x 2) – Value $1.73
I should preface this by saying I never buy potato chips. So of course I thought these were delicious. They did not taste like potato chips cooked in sunflower or safflower oil, but neither did they have a strong coconut flavor.
Skeeter Shortbread Mini Cookies (1 oz) – Value $0.77
Skeeter Double Chocolate Mini Cookies (1 oz) – Value $0.77
I’m not the biggest fan of packaged cookies but these were all right. Love with Food usually includes a few allergy-friendly treats and these were nut free.
Honey Stinger Organic Salted Caramel Waffle (1 oz x 2) – Value $1.88
I loved these. I’ve had another flavor of these before. The texture is perfect – they just melt in your mouth. And they are like pure sugar to me. One of my favorite items from the box.
Every box comes with some coupons and/or product literature.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $18 for the April 2016 Love with Food Deluxe Box. This is slightly under the cost of the subscription but not so unusual for a Love with Food box. I was happy this month because I liked most of the items. And one reason I subscribed to Love with Food was so I’d have snacks to split with my husband. There were a lot of duplicates this month so he could take one to work and I could take the other – this actually made me happy even though it comes at the cost of variety. Also don’t forget there are a lot of deals for subscriptions and you can review the items for points that can be redeemed in the Love with Food shop, so that makes the subscription a little bit better of a deal.
What do you think of the April 2016 Love with Food box? What’s your favorite snack subscription?
