Love With Food July Subscription Box Review


Love With Food is a subscription box service that delivers 8+ all-natural snacks each month for $7.99. I love this box because each box purchase donates one meal to hungry children in America. (Note: I do get points from the referral link above if you use my link to sign up.)
One other reason I love this box? It came shrink-wrapped in plastic, and as you can see in the photo above, it was a very wet day when it was delivered. THANK YOU, LWF!
This box contained eight treats, as well as a coupon for a free Lean Cuisine.
Bare Simply Toasted Crunchy Coconut Chips
Honey Stinger Kids’ Organic Sour Citrus

Let’s start with  my favorite thing in the box – the Bare Simply Toasted Crunchy Coconut Chips. I’d show you what they look like, but I inhaled them. They are small, crunchy chips. The only three ingredients: coconut, cane sugar, sea salt. These were so good that I ordered more of this and other flavors online.

Next up, the Honey Stinger Organic Chews. These are pretty much fruit gummies, with “natural lime ade, grapefruit and sour cherry flavors.” There were more grapefruit in my bag than the other flavors, which is a bummer, because it’s my least favorite citrus fruit. But the flavor of these are really good, not artificial at all. I’m pretty sure these are better for you than Gummy Bears, and they taste better, too!
TRUE Lime, Grapefruit, Orange and Lemon (not pictured)
Lemon Almond Biscotti
Glee Gum Pop (orange)

This is the second time I’ve gotten packets of TRUE crystallized citrus in a subscription box. No complaints from me, though! I used the lemon almost immediately. It’s great to carry around and add to water in places where a lemon or a lime aren’t available. It’s even a great addition to a mixed drink if, say, you’re out of lemon juice. It does take a few minutes to dissolve completely in cold water, but it’s worth it.

I was a bit sad that the Lemon Almond Biscotti was so small. Okay, so it’s like a cookie, and that’s probably the serving size, but I could have eaten twice that and still wanted more. There were a lot of nuts in it, and it was nice and crunchy.

Then there’s the Glee Gum Pop. They are gluten-free, vegan and made without artificial colors or flavors or sweeteners. My flavor was orange. And boy was it! We’re not talking about an orange Tootsie Roll Pop here. This was ORANGE, like solid orange juice. Without a doubt the best sucker I’ve ever had … on the outside. The gum, on the other hand, was absolutely awful. It was too liquid-y when I first got to it, so it was really sticky and messy. It finally solidified, but then it had no flavor. I’m much prefer these pops without the gum.

Bear Naked Coconut Almond Curry Granola
Fruigees Organic Fruit Snack (24 Carrot Orange)

I haven’t tried the Bear Naked Coconut Almond Curry Granola yet. Honesty, I’m a bit leery of it. I do like curry, and I like coconut, and those things do go together. But with the granola? I’m not so sure. I’ll have to get back with you on that one.

Fruigees Organic Fruit Snack is my first foray into squeeze snacks. It doesn’t say anywhere that it’s for kids, but it looks like it’s for kids. I don’t have kids, so I ate it. It’s the color of the packaging, kind of creamsicle-ish, with the consistency of a melted smoothie. The flavor was very much like the V8 Splash beverages with carrots. Sweet, but not overly, and you can’t taste carrot, only orange. Probably not something I’d buy.

One Potato Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ Chips

The final item is the One Potato Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ Chips. I’m not really a fan of kettle chips because I think they’re too loud and crunchy, but I’m sure Chris will dig into these in the next week. I would guess they are barbecue chips with a hint of sweetness.

You can buy some of the individual products on Love With Food (I’ve included the links to those), or you can buy this specific box for $15. I recommend just getting a subscription and going with what you get. I love the surprise anyway.
Overall, I think this box is a great value, not only because of what it contains, but also because of the donated meal. Can’t wait to see what’s in the next one.

In the Meantime paid for this box.
