Love With Food Deluxe November 2017

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.

Once again this box arrived in good time but I put it off and put if off so I’m doing a review of a November box in February.  The box did arrive slightly crushed but nothing inside seemed to be damaged in any way.

The theme this month is Love Is Food.  It makes sense since this would have corresponded with American Thanksgiving.

These bars have the equivalent of three bananas in each one.  They appear to be mixed with chocolate. They are non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and have no preservatives.  Each bar is 83 calories.  I don’t much like bananas but these bars feel like they are soft and I’m sure they are good.

This is going straight to my husband.  I hate the thought of anything I need to dunk into something else to make it edible.  The whole dunking thing makes me crazy.  It is such a gross activity.  Why would you ever want possible chunks of solids in your liquids?  Horrifying.

These are a soft gummy candy chew.  They are gelatin free, so no bone marrow to be found.  They are also fat, gluten, and nut free.  I think gummy candy is one of my main weaknesses when it comes to food so I’m happy to see a somewhat healthy version.

I love these!!!  I almost never buy them because they seem too expensive for me to justify for a snack but I’m so glad to get one in the box.  This one is apple raspberry flavoured.  These have zero fat and only 50 calories.

20170203_213948Shine Organics Revive Pouch

I can honestly say I have never had one of these pouch-type foods in my life.  I buy the yogurt ones for the girls but not the fruit and not ever for me.  This blend is made of pear, celery, coconut, lime, green tea, and chia.  It will supposedly help my mind and body stay on the right track.  I’m uncertain about this one.

This is a bag of trail mix.  It says it is a spicy blend of rice flakes, peas, and lentils.  It has about twenty other ingredients as well and four of those are spicy things.  I think I’ll like as long as it’s not super spicy.

20170203_214013PB Thins Peanut Butter Crackers x 2

I don’t have much to say about these.  I think they will be tasty and I like peanut butter.  They feel like they are about an inch square and crunchy.

20170203_214027Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps x 2

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love these so much!!!!! I eat them all the time and they are delicious!  This might be the best thing in the box.  They have all the salty goodness of a regular pretzel but they are flat.  All of the love for these.

20170203_214038Wise Cinnabon Popcorn x 2

This is cinnamon roll flavoured popcorn.  That might be okay.  I eat a lot of popcorn so there is very little that I shouldn’t like about this.

20170203_214052Mrs.Thinster’s Cookie Thins

I think I would like these if they were any other flavour than Pumpkin Spice.  I have had thin cookies before from another brand and enjoyed them.

20170203_214117Go Organic Chocolate and Ginger Toffee x 3

Tossed in the bottom of the box were these three little candies.

My fourth 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 being 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.
