This month’s tasting box is all about welcoming the fall season and using it as motivation for rededicating yourself to your goals.
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 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.
They threw in a coupon, too! Sweet! This is totally getting used.
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.
There’s a coupon for this product, too!
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!
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.
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).
