Love with Food Tasting Box December 2017 Review
December’s theme is “Share the Love.” Love with Food is featuring Christine Ha, who goes by The Blind Cook, and is the MasterChef Season 3 Winner. They’re promoting her cookbook!
These little guys are so good. They taste like little bits of jam! They’re small and soft enough that you can pop a few in your mouth at a time and experience a nice boost of sweetness without having to worry too much about your chompers getting stuck together. I’m not huge on gummy candy because of the way it gets stuck in my teeth, and while these aren’t technically candy, they have a similar effect. So, I could only eat a few at a time, but they’re good to have on hand for fueling workouts! These guys are non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan.
Blue Diamond Hint of Sea Salt Mini Nut-Thins, 0.74oz. – Buy a pack of 6 4.4 oz bags for $4.99
These wheat and gluten-free almond and rice crackers are my everything! I keep a similar cracker from Trader Joe’s in my pantry 100% of the time, and eating a few is a highlight of my day, every day! These Blue Diamond ones are even crunchier than the ones I keep on stock, and I wish this little bag would last forever! The flavor isn’t too nutty, it’s almost similar to a rice cake, but with a much better consistency. So yummy dipped in hummus, with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese on top!
Candy Cane – Estimated Value $0.50
This candy cane is a nice little festive touch! It’s got the classic peppermint flavor to it, and I’m impressed that it arrived in one piece, knowing how fragile candy canes can be.
Dolcetto Chocolate Wafer Rolls, 0.53 oz – Buy a 12 oz. can for $10.78
These chocolate-filled wafer sticks will taste familiar to folks who know and love Pirouettes. To me, they aren’t to die for, as they’re pretty light, and I’m more of a decadent desserts kind of lady. But they’re a fun little sweet treat to have with a cup of coffee.
Munk Pack Coconut White Chocolate Macadamia Protein Cookie, 2.96 oz. – Retail Value $2.51
I’ve only ever tried a Munk Pack Protein cookie once and it was the double dark chocolate flavor, which was pretty much perfection to me. This coconut white chocolate macadamia flavor is really amazing in so many ways, but for a chocolate-lover like me, it’s second best. Things I love about this cookie: it’s non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan. I also love that it’s got a very soft, almost cake-like consistency to it, and somehow lacks that not-so-great protein powder aftertaste that prevents many-a-granola-bar from being epic. A drawback is that it has 18g of sugar in it, which to me seems like a ton for a health food snack, even if it is a cookie. Serving size is half the cookie, but to me, Munk Pack has high expectations of their consumers in thinking they’ll stop eating this delicious snack halfway through!
Bakery on Main Cranberry Almond Maple Gluten-Free Granola, 1.1oz – Retail Value $1.29
This granola is like a cross between corn flakes and trail mix. It’s awesome that it’s gluten-free, but it’s so sweet that I had a hard time convincing myself that I was snacking on something healthy. I would love it if this mix relied on the craisins for sweetness, but instead, it’s all topped with a sugary coating that gives it a sort of artificial flavor. Not my favorite in this box.
The Daily Crave Veggie Chips, 0.6oz. – Retail Value $0.89
These are pretty classic as far as veggie chips go. They don’t have a ton of flavor, but they also aren’t seeping with oil and are free of hydrogenated fats. To me, eating these chips is more for something crunchy to munch on than it is to really satisfy hunger. They’re simple and good!
The Verdict: I’m generally pleased with this month’s Love with Food tasting box. My consistent feedback with snacks claiming to be healthy is that I wish they would include a little less sugar. With the right ingredients, it just isn’t necessary to pump sugar in! That said, my favorite snack was probably the most sugary of them all, the Munk Pack Cookie. I had fun exploring snacks new and old, and look forward to seeing what Love with Food offers going forward!

Value Breakdown: This box is $9.99 a month with free shipping. I received seven snacks this month (not including the candy cane), which averages out to $1.43 per snack. That is an incredible value because these items purchased separately would retail far higher than that amount! To come close to the same cost you would certainly have to buy each item in bulk to get similar value.
