Instead of listing out the snacks, you can head to their website for more info, or to reorder something you loved.
Pure Growth Organic White Cheddar Popcorn (Mickey Mouse), 0.5 oz – Value $0.62 (buy a box of 8 for $4.98)
I happened to review the Love With Food Tasting box this month and received this popcorn there as well. In addition to being gluten free, this is also organic and popped right here in the ol’ U S of A. The white cheddar flavor is super cheesy and hard to stop eating once you start. Luckily this is a small bag so I can’t go totally overboard.
Delallo Gluten Free Lasagna – Value $3.95
Pasta is bae, so I am super stoked on these lasagna noodles. Can you believe I’ve never made lasagna though? It doesn’t make sense, I know, but now I am destined to! There is a recipe on the back, but I have one of my mom’s recipes, so I may go rogue. These noodles are made with corn and rice flour instead of the traditional wheat which is a joy for all of the gluten free buddies out there! I’ll have to report back to let you all know how it goes!
Burt’s Bees Protein + Healthy Radiance Powder in Vanilla – Value $2.77 (Buy a pack of 10 for $27.72 on Amazon)
Did any of you know that Burt’s Bees made protein shakes? Me either. I suppose that’s because it’s new! This packet is to make a single serving vanilla flavored plant-based shake. My track record with enjoying protein powders is at zero, so I will be passing this on to a friend who uses them. I do enjoy Burt’s Bees products, and trust them, so if I were going to start drinking protein shakes, I’d definitely try this. There also happens to be a coupon for 20% off at Amazon included which is a nice perk of subscribing to Love With Food.
Surf Sweets Watermelon Rings, 2.75 oz. – Value $1.99
Whoa- these are super good! I love gummies (peach rings are my fave), and these are unbelievably soft and sweet, without any artificial flavors, or corn syrup. They’re also vegan, so I can share them with some friends that don’t partake in animal products. Hearing all of that makes one think you may lose some flavor, but I’m here to tell you that they’re just as tasty as a gummy filled with all sorts of ickiness! The watermelon flavor is excellent and I can almost feel watermelon juice running down my chin when I’m eating these.
Fruit leather is a great on-the-go snack, so I’m glad to see this brand that I’m unfamiliar with. Each strip contains about 1/2 cup of fruits and veggies, so you can rest assured that you’re getting at least one serving when you nosh on one of these while in the car. The only ingredients are organic fruit and veggie purees (like apple, strawberry, and sweet potato), so there’s no added sugar or hard-to-pronounce stuff.
Veggie Go’s Fruit and Veggie Bites (Strawberry, Chia Seeds, and Beets), 0.5 oz. -Value $1.40 (Get a pack of 5 for $6.99 from Amazon)
Another product by Veggie Go’s are these lil bite sized snacks. Similar to the strip, these have one serving of fruits and vegetables without additives, just in a different form. I immediately felt the crunch of the chia seeds, which I enjoyed. These are really delicious and taste just like drinking juice! Yum!
You also receive a coupon $1.00 off of three products and for 15% off anything on their site.
Lundberg Family Farms Rice Chips in Sea Salt, 1.5 oz. – Value $1.43 (Get a case of 24 on Amazon for $34.38)
You can definitely taste the rice flavor in these tortilla-like chips. They’re made with brown rice so they have a “healthy” taste to them, but are salty as well. These don’t really do it for me alone, but would be great with some hummus, no doubt!
Barney Butter Almond Butter, 0.6 oz. – Value $0.50 (buy a 24 pack for $11.99)
I also received a sample of this in the Love With Food Tasting box, and thoroughly enjoyed it! Perfect for some toast topping in the morning.
True Made Foods Vegetable BBQ Sauce x 2 sample packets – Value $2.00? (Not sure how many ounces I received, so I’m taking a wild stab)
Upon opening this month’s Love With Food Gluten Free Box, I started singing a song I call “Barbecue Explosion” due to one of the two of my BBQ packs being punctured and leaking a bit of savory sauce on to some of the other snacks. Luckily, it wasn’t too bad, but I’d like to take a moment of silence for that sauce….
First off, this is made entirely of vegetables and includes tomato, butternut squash, carrots, spinach, and onion. I opened it up and dipped a chip in to discover that it’s incredibly flavorful and tastes just like a sauce made from fewer veggies. Their included coupon mentions that they have 50% less sugar than leading brands which sounds like a good idea. Is it weird that I’m dipping Rice Chips into it right now?
Made Good Chocolate Banana Granola Bar, 0.85 oz. – Value $0.78 (Get a box of 5 for $3.89 on sale at Plum Market)
I will admit to you lovely people that I do not normally eat breakfast. I love breakfast food, but I love sleep more, so I won’t get out of bed with enough time to make anything before work. This means I am starving by lunch, or rely on quick snacks to throw in my bag in the a.m. This granola bar by Made Good basically tastes like a bowl of banana oatmeal with chocolate in a bar form. I enjoy bananas but generally don’t go for banana-y things even though this is scrumptious.
Vermont Smoke & Cure Beef & Pork Stick in Cracked Pepper, 1 oz. stick – Value $1.37 (get a case of 24 on Amazon for $32.85)
I got a couple of these exact beef and pork sticks last month in Degustabox, so they must be working the subscription box circuit. These are a great option if slim jims gross you out like they do me. The meat used in these are vegetarian fed, with no added hormones and no antibiotics. You can taste the quality here.
Hungry Buddha Coconut Chips in Pumpkin Spice with Turmeric, 1.4 oz. – Value $2.06 (Buy a case of 12 for $24.76)
I don’t understand the whole pumpkin spice craze, so I could have done without this flavor, but it’s actually very subtle. You can still taste the coconut and even a little bit of the turmeric. Quite lovely, indeed. I will always love coconut chips in a snack box!
Wonder + Well Water with a dash of Organic Watermelon, 6.75 fl. oz. – Value $1.06 (Buy a case of 32 for $33.99)
There is something weird about this. I mean, it’s watermelon flavored water in a juice box, but beyond that. The ingredients say “Purified water, organic watermelon flavor and organic natural flavors”. “Watermelon flavor” sounds suspicious to me. I’m not a fan of this and would rather drink water, but it looks like this is marketed for kids. Meh.
Angel Mints x 2 mints – Value $0.76 (buy 2, 6 oz. boxes for $12.99)
I’ve never heard of these, but am feeling them. I can’t explain the texture to you, but I’ve had something similar, probably when getting the check at a restaurant. It’s sort of that chalky/chewy sort of deal and the mint flavor is nice and breath-freshening.
Verdict: Love with Food Gluten Free box certainly has a lot in it! I took quite the journey of flavor and came out on the other side less hungry and with the knowledge of many new foods I had never tried (and some I had). I calculated the value to be $22.04 which is below the cost of the $24.99 box. This is more of a way to try out new foods that you may like, more than to get a deal, it seems. Love With Food also donates a portion of the proceeds to help fight childhood hunger in the US and around the world (like Feeding America and The Global Food Banking Network), so you can feel good that your snacking habits help at least a little bit!
