Will there ever be a Love With Food box that I don’t love? Time will tell, but probably not. Who doesn’t want a box of tasty snacks showing up once a month for just a few bucks? And with their new lower prices it’s tough to top it. The theme this month was “Road Trip”, and as usual I am laughing at how nothing fits the theme. It happens every month. I’m not sure why they bother when “Box Full of Snacks” is really the only theme they need.
There are 3 different subscription options to choose from: the regular tasting box ($7.99-9.99/month), a deluxe tasting box with twice as many samples ($16.50-$19.99), and a gluten-free option ($19.99-$24.99). As a bonus, LWF donates a meal to a hungry child for every box that they sell. They really are awesome. Alright already, let’s get into this month’s box:
Rosemary Croccantini by La Panzanella – I normally don’t like dry Italian crackers, but these have enough rosemary to give them character. Brian and I scarfed them down when we were particularly hungry on an hour long drive to meet a friend for dinner, and they did the trick. We didn’t die from terrible texture or flavor. That would be a shitty way to go.
Peanut Butter by Wild Friends – I’m just going to put this out there: it’s chocolate coconut peanut butter. It tastes like a samoa Girl Scout cookie. It is basically a perfect food.
Lemon Rooibos Iced Herbal Tea by Stash – I never make tea (that’s what Starbucks is for), so all the tea I receive gets set aside and given to my dad who makes tea all the time. I’m never tempted to try to make tea, but this one was intriguing to me, primarily because you don’t have to do anything but dump it into cold water. I’m not sure that really breaks my No Making Tea lifestyle, so maybe I’ll find myself “making tea” after all.
Asiago, Parmesan, & Cheddar Popcorn by 479 Degrees – This popcorn was awesome. I meant to share it with Brian, but it was too awesome. Sometimes when snacks taste that good I lose the ability to stop eating them halfway through like a responsible snacker. Brian, if you’re reading this, this is the first time you’re hearing about this bag of popcorn. I’m sorry, I couldn’t stop and I threw away the evidence.
Popped Salted Caramel Bar by Kind Healthy Grains – Kind bars are super tasty, but generally not that satisfying. This bar was not only super tasty, but also very satisfying. It got me through an intense morning workout and I wasn’t even hungry until 2 hours afterward. If you know me, you know that’s laughably improbable. WELL LOOK WHO’S LAUGHING NOW.
Apple Hard Candies by Go Organic – I was surprised to see a full sized bag of candy in my snack box. Someone at LWF must be drunk and generous this month, because there are like 30 candies in there. I don’t typically like hard candy but the least I could do was try one, and I liked it enough to eat a lot of them.
Roasted Broad Beans by Enlightened – I don’t know what broad beans are, but they are tasty when roasted and doused in salt. The pack I received was garlic and onion flavored, which was alarming. Usually it’s one or the other flavor, rarely are we granted a combination of the two. #Blessed
Fruity Pie – I guess when your brand name is also your product name you are pretty confident that you’ve got a good thing going. This is supposed to be like a fruit pie, but healthy and portable. I don’t think it tasted like a fruit pie at all; it sure did taste healthy. I would say this was my least favorite snack in the box. Certainly not great enough to act like the Prince or Madonna of snack boxes. That’s just arrogant.
Final Rating: A
There is nothing to dislike about a box of snacks that predictably shows up every month. I enjoy all the snacks, despite the occasional Fruity Pie they include. This month’s clear winner was the popcorn, followed closely by the Samoa-esque peanut butter. This month they started emailing spoilers for snacks, which I find adorable. Love With Food, if you’re listening, you are the best.
