PopCorners in Original White Cheddar, 1 oz – Buy a 40 pack for $25.00 on Amazon

I’ve had PopCorners before, but never in this delicious flavor! I love white cheddar popcorn, so I’m not surprised I liked these. Think of PopCorners as the midpoint between popcorn and a tortilla chip. They still have the light, almost fluffy vibe of a piece of popcorn, but with the shape and crispy crunch of a tortilla chip. This item was a winner for me!

RX Bar in Chocolate Sea Salt, 1.83 oz – Buy a box of 12 for $25.99 here

RX Bars have been popping up everywhere! I don’t know if I’m just starting to notice them or if they’re just now having their big debut, but I’ve been seeing them at stores and inside a few subscription boxes. Either way, I’m not complaining! These bars are chewy, a little bit sticky, and for being just about the size of a credit card (but pretty thick), extremely filling. I loved the dark chocolatey taste of this bar and the bit of texture the occasional almond and crunchy sea salt provided. You can kind of tell it’s a “healthy” bar, but for being so simple, it tasted surprisingly decadent.

2 Welch’s Fruit Rolls in White Grape Strawberry and Berry, 0.75 oz each – Buy a 42 pack for $16.98 on Amazon

Fruit snacks aren’t really my thing, but I can see these snacks being a fun reminder of the good old days of elementary school lunches and after-school snacks. According to the card that came with these two snacks, these Welch’s snacks have fruit as their first ingredient, include lots of vitamin C, A, and E, and are gluten- and preservative-free. That said, I’m still not convinced they’re the healthiest option, but for 70 calories a piece, they could be a quick way to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Harvest Snaps Lightly Salted, 0.75 oz – Buy a pack of 36 for $32.74 on Amazon

Mmm, I’ve really grown to love these kinds of snacks. These pea crisps are fluffy, almost like a corn puff might be, and while yes, they do have a pea-ish aftertaste, the main flavor is savory and salty. These particular crisps struck me as being a bit bitter, but they satisfied my cravings for something salty while being a bit better for me than a bag of potato chips.

Taffy, 2 Pieces – Value $1.00?

I wasn’t sure what to make of these unlabeled little goodies. I do believe they’re taffy, though I’m not sure the brand nor source. The white-wrapped one seemed to be vanilla flavored, while the orange-gridded one had a predictably orange flavor. They both were super stiff and chewy, which isn’t my thing necessarily, but if you enjoy those kinds of candies, then I’m sure they were a good surprise!

Biscoff Cookie, 0.2 oz – Buy 10 packs of 36 cookies each for $32.74 on Amazon

I love these cookies! I’ve only ever had them on planes, really—they go great with coffee or tea—so it was a happy surprise to see one in this box. This two-bite cookie kind of left me wanting more, by which I mean the toasty caramel flavor and crispy, crunchy texture were so awesome, I wish I had a second (or third… or fourth…) to polish off. I didn’t know that this brand was made with all-natural ingredients, but I was pleased to read that on the label!

2 Pieces of Bali’s Best Tea Candy in Green Tea Latte – Buy a 32 piece bag for $5.26 on Amazon

This was super interesting! Just as the name suggests, this is a hard candy that really truly does taste like tea! I’m not much of a hard candy person, but I am a fan of tea and green tea/matcha flavors especially. So this was a neat little treat.

Truvia Nectar, Sample Size – Buy a 10.58 oz bottle for $8.88 at Walmart

I’ve never tried this artificial stevia-based sweetener before, so it was nice to have the chance to try it. Apparently, it includes honey, which makes sense, given that the taste is very much like a lighter, thinner honey. I liked that there wasn’t any weird artificial aftertaste to it, but I feel like for me, I’d probably just reach for the real thing (honey) rather than go for this version of it.

The Verdict: I liked checking out the products in this Love with Food tasting box. Not everything was a hit with me—I wish it wasn’t so heavy on the candy/sweets—but I did enjoy the PopCorners and the RX Bar a lot. For me, many of these snacks were familiar, so the “discovery” aspect wasn’t totally there. But I would be excited for someone who hasn’t tried a few of these snacks to get to check ’em out! 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, you might not get exactly what I received (based on availability). Get it here.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $9.99 with free shipping, and it contained 11 individual items. The average cost of each item, then, is about $0.91. While that still seems like a lot for things like the candies and the Truvia samples, it is less than I know certain products to go for (for instance, I rarely see a single RX Bar for sale for less than $1.00).

  1. i just cancelled so my sub wouldnt auto renew in jan. i was hoping they would have another deal the end of the year but this box isnt worth the money to me anymore. i’ll just keep it at degusta for now.

    I love those peas and will eat the pop snacks, but no more fruit rolls please. they are too gummy and don’t like.
    oh, i’ll eat the cookie eventually

  2. I subscribed last year and enjoyed this box, but canceled recently due to the skimpy items and too many fruity and sugary items. And I’m sad to read the comments about the points because before I quit, I did redeem points for things like chocolates, even previous boxes with free shipping. I can see how that wasn’t cost effective for them.

  3. Agreed. I’m super disappointed that they changed their points program without giving any notice or explanation to their customers. I have been a loyal subscriber for a long time and I will probably not renew because of this. The shipping prices to redeem rewards are now ridiculous too.

  4. I bought this for my son with the $13.50 deal for 3 months. I was highly disappointed. I would not have been happy if I had paid full price for this. I was not expecting full size by any means, but this was skimpy at best. No new discoveries either.

  5. I was a subscriber, but decided to not renew my subscription after they made changes in the point system and didn’t let their subscribers know in advance.
    For me, the best part of the subscription was being able to redeem the points for anything in their shop, and now not only they created a separate section to list (the few) products available with points, but also decided to start charging twice the shipping than the regular shop.
    After this shady move, I decided to subscribe to Graze instead.

    • Really!?!?!? I unsubbed a few months ago but didn’t hear about this or realize it. Wow. I decided not to renew just because the Tasting box (at least) started to feel even more “light” and random than usual and there were so many repeats or boring things (Welch’s roll ups?!?!). But I would have really kicked myself if I still stuck with it and then discovered the points/shop changes. Whew. Does anyone know if they have new management or something? Just seems like things are changing and not in a good way….

    • I just noticed this too ! $9 for shipping no thanks, I have one month left then I’m done. I subscribed to degustabox and really like It so far.

    • Gabriela, What changes did they make in the point system?
      This does look like an underwhelming box. I’m not going to continue to subscribe after my six months runs out.

      • Now you can only use the points to redeem to a limited number of products (in the Rewards Pantry section), and they charge $8.99 shipping to send your reward.

        • wow.. the shipping charge is ridiculous. I won’t resub when mine is up. I also have the deluxe box and I’ve been with them years, but I loved the points system. Too bad.
