Love With Food Deluxe October 2016

Love With Food is a monthly subscription box that sends out organic, all-natural, or gluten free snacks.  They want to help you to “Snack smart and Do good.”  They donate a portion of their proceeds to organisations that help end child hunger.  They offer three box types but only two are available in Canada.  You can get the Deluxe box or the Gluten Free box, starting at $16.50 a month.  Shipping right now is $3.99 a month since they just opened up international shipping.  If you really like your coworkers they have an office box for $99.  You’ll get 16-20 snacks a month,  meals given to children, and points earned to redeem for boxes or snacks.  I love getting snacks in the mail and to find ones that won’t completely destroy my weight loss attempts is a good thing.  I’ve been watching this one for a while and was so glad they now ship to Canada.  Let’s open it up and see if the wait was worth it.

This review is very late, and that’s all on me.  The box came on time and I keep putting it off and putting it off and now I’m doing a review for an October box in January.  The box comes all wrapped in plastic and once I did get in it was packed full.

The don’t include an info card but there is a little card that talks about the monthly theme and lets you know about the shop.

Westminister Bakers Co. Whole Wheat Snack Crackers x 2

These are teeny tiny little crackers.  Each pack is 100 calories and made of whole grains.  These should be tasty with some cheese I think.

Brothers All Natural Fruit Crisps Fiji Apples x 2

These are obviously Halloween themed, which would make complete sense in an October box.  There are only 20 calories per bag so they are quite good for snacking.

Dick & Jane Educational Snacks x 2

These are a vanilla flavoured cookie that has the presidents of the USA on them.  The thought being that as you stuff your face you are learning things.  These have 130 calories per bag and hopefully they will be tasty.

Beanitos White Bean Chips x 2

There are two different flavours of these chips in the box, Sweet Chili & Sour Cream and Garden Fresh Salsa.  I think these are going to be great and make up for a craving of regular chips.  They are 100 calories per bag.

Divina Fig Spread x 2

I have no idea what you would do with this.  Is it like jam?  I like figs.  These are a mystery and one day I will be brave enough to give them a go.

Awake Energy Granola Bar

This is a Dark Chocolate Caramel caffeine and vitamin bar.  I’ve never tried the Awake bars before though I have seen them in my local stores. This will be saved for a day when I need some get up and go and don’t have time for anything substantial.

Walkers Shortbread

If you’ve been reading for a while you will know that I hate shortbread.  This is going straight to my Hubby and he can add it to his pile of shortbread from Christmas.

Everly Strawberry Lemonade Drink Mix

This is a great addition for me.  I am always looking for ways to get more water into my day and I just can’t do it by drinking plain water.  These are going to come to work with me and keep me going and away from the coffee shop!

Almond Roca

I’m eating this right now!  I rarely buy these and they only show up and Christmas anyways.  This will be the only one I had all season and I’m going to enjoy it.  If you don’t know, an Almond Roca is a toffee that has chocolate with it.  Delicious.

One Potato Two Potato Sweet Potato Chips

This bag is one of the higher calorie count items in the box at 300 calories for the whole thing.  They are just potatoes fried with salt on them.  I’m going to enjoy these too!  I don’t much care for mashed or baked sweet potatoes but I love them fried!

Lundberg Family Farms Rice Chips

This box is finishing off in a great way for me.  I love rice chips too!  These are sea salt and that is all they need to be delicious.  So happy right now!

Annie B’s Handmade Caramel x 2

There are two flavours included, Apple and Butter Rum.  Both sticks are soft and will stick to my teeth but I think they will be yummy.

My third box gave me even more of the things I love to eat.  I am so happy to be getting this box and finding snacks that are at least in the realm of better for me.  They have great shipping notices and the boxes come wrapped in plastic so no one can peek in and nab your snacks.
