Yummy Earth Organic Suckers – Value $1.25?
I received 5 Yummy Earth Organic Suckers. The flavors are blueberry tooberry, strawberry smash, googly grape, pomegranate pucker, and watermelon wet-face. These suckers are a nice, manageable size. They are approximately the size of a quarter and pretty flat. I find that smaller suckers are easier to eat, so these are great for that. I tried the blueberry flavor and really enjoyed it.
Hemp Hearts Manitoba Harvest – Value $0.75
These hemp hearts are raw shelled hemp seeds to be sprinkled on salad, cereal, or yogurt. These are packed with omegas, vitamins, digestible proteins, minerals, and fiber. The flavor is very nondescript and would work well in any of the suggested serving methods, or even thrown into a smoothie or muffin.
Kitchen Crafted Sprd Marinara Mia Spread – Value $0.36
This spread is basically a mayonnaise with tomato flavoring. I can see how this would be a great dip for french fries or spread on a sandwich. I asked my husband to sample this and he thought the flavor was really great.
Pork Clouds, Rosemary & Sea Salt – Value $1.50
I have received these pork clouds in several sub boxes, and my husband always enjoys them. I am obviously not a fan, as a vegetarian, but if you’re a meat eater, you’ll likely enjoy this snack.
Blue Diamond Mini Nut-Thins, Cheddar Cheese – Value $0.47
Unfortunately, I was not a fan of these.There was a really odd aftertaste and I just didn’t enjoy the flavor.
Watusee Foods Chickpeatoes, Tomato Basil – Value $0.80
These snacks were also a miss for me. I didn’t enjoy the flavors at all. The texture was as you would expect – nice and crunchy – but the flavor just didn’t come through well.
Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle, Salted Caramel – Value $0.94
Brownie Brittle is always great – and adding salted caramel to it is even better. I really love the crunch and the flavor that is always present in Brownie Brittle.
Laughing Giraffe Organics Lemon Snakaroon – Value $0.79
I’ve tried these before and I had the same verdict then as I did this round of tasting: the flavor is very good, but the texture could use some improvement. They’re a bit mealy and dry – I think if they were to either make these chewy or crunchy I would enjoy them more.
Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash – Value $1.20
Speculoos cookies are always great in my opinion. These were not a disappointment – they had the nice cinnamon and caramel flavor that is the hallmark of this flavor. These were nice because they were small, bite-sized bits of goodness.
Verdict: My Love with Food box was a bit of a disappointment this month, just because of the number of items that I either didn’t like or that I was more ambivalent toward. Despite that, they always do a great job of curating the mix of sweet and salty, which is something that I look for in a snack box. The value this month was around $8.00. This is on the lower side of what I usually see with Love with Food – but the value is generally always below the $9.99 month-to-month charge for the box.
