Love with Food Tasting Box August 2018 Review
August’s theme is “Reach” and encourages you to throw your hands in the air and reach for the stars! Regardless of if it’s a new job, a new school year, or a new hobby – you CAN do what you set out to do (especially with some tasty, and healthy treats!).
This box doesn’t include a booklet containing item info, but the information can easily be found on their website – the link is included on the insert card. They also encourage you to show off your box on social media, for the chance to win a special snack box!
This 220 calorie bar pack is gluten-free, GMO-free, organic, and wheat free. It’s a standard size bar (around 4″ long) and has a chewy brownie-like texture. It’s not sweet at all, but very chocolaty. It was satisfying for my chocolate cravings, but not my sweet tooth. It had a pretty pleasing texture and taste though and would to satisfy a mid-afternoon craving. Honestly, I picked up more coconut texture than salt flavor – but did keep picking it up and taking additional nibbles as I wrote this review!
RX Nut Butter Vanilla Almond Butter by RXBAR – Buy a box of 10 for $15.99
This yummy treat even came with a 20% off + free shipping offer for RXBAR! Yay!
This package contains 190 calories and is dairy-free, gluten-free, organic, and vegetarian. Note that it does contain egg whites – so it’s not a vegan product. I didn’t pick up much of the vanilla – to me it just tasted (and looked) like creamy almond butter – but I very much liked it and it would be fantastic in a smoothie!
Kettle Corn Popped-Corn Snack by PopCorners – Buy a box of 40 1-oz. bags for $35.00
OK – so these are delicious too! With the texture of a rice cake, taste of kettle corn, and look of a tortilla chip I can’t help but think about the recipe possibilities for these! I think if you put out a giant bowl of these and some sweet type of dip (just spitballing here – but thinking something made out of cream cheese and chocolate) you’d be the talk of the town. You will not be able to eat just one of these.
The 0.5 oz package that I received (which was about 8 chips – and not enough!) was 60 calories and is dairy-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, nut-free, vegan, vegetarian, and wheat-free.
The Sahale nut blends are dairy-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, kosher, organic, vegetarian, and wheat free. This 1.5 oz. pack has 220 and is comprised of nuts, dried fruits, and spices. I loved the tartness of the lemon in contrast to the sweet dried fruit, and the spicy black pepper to round out the nut flavor. These were a big hit for me – taste and texture were on fleek (are we still saying that?)
Bubble Gum Filled Pops by TreeHugger – Buy 25 for $11.99
The package comes with 4 varieties – sour apple, cherry, pineapple, and grape – all made with natural colors and flavors. I received a cherry pop – and it tasted like a cherry lollipop. I don’t like things filled with chewing gum, so I wouldn’t purchase these on my own but it was an OK addition to this box and it is kind of fun to suck on a lollipop while you’re working on an excel spreadsheet – it brings a little bit of childhood to a mundane adult task.
These pops are dairy-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, kosher, nut-free, soy-free, vegan, vegetarian, and wheat-free – so you could feel pretty good about passing them on to the kiddos in your life.
Fruity Oat Bar (Banana) by Beech-Nut – Buy 5 for $10.00 (currently out of stock)
I couldn’t find this exact variety on sale online – but it’s a stage 3 toddler food recommended for 12 months and up – I know they sell beech nut at mass grocers and big box retailers, so I’m sure they aren’t hard to find in stores. This bar was actually pretty tasty, almost like an oatmeal version of banana bread. I didn’t think I’d like it – but I did.
Gourmet Popcorn by Oogie’s – Buy a variety pack of 16 – 1 oz. bags for $22.95
This pack contains 150 calories and about 3.5 cups of corn! That’s a pretty filling snack size – and I loved the movie time butter flavor. It tasted just like the buttered popcorn that you’d get at the movie theatre – and it’s gluten-free, GMO-free, organic, and wheat-free. This bag won’t see the sunrise – especially if my toddler gets his little paws on it!
This is an odd-ball to me – we do a lot of cooking with coconut oil in my house, but these tiny little packs don’t seem very useful. I guess some people might use them if they travel, or to quickly add some good fat into their smoothies, etc – but it’s like getting a single-use foil sample lotion to me – it’ll just sit in a drawer somewhere and probably never really get used.
And finally, there is a coupon for Bubbies Hawaii Mochi Ice Cream – it’s valid for 1 free ice cream pack (any flavor up to $10). I think that’s a generous coupon! Their website has an item locator that indicates where their products are sold – and I learned from that site that it is sold at the whole foods near my home. I’ll throw it in my wallet and pick it up the next time that I’m in the store. It’s valid until the end of the year – so plenty of time to redeem!
The Verdict: Love with Food Tasting is a great way to be introduced to new snacks and brands that you might not find at your local grocery store. I enjoyed tasting most of the 9 items that I received, and I think it’s a steal at a low price of $9.99/month (esp. considering the $10 coupon I got for the Mochi at Whole Foods!)
