Love With Food Deluxe May 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 organizations 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.

I feel so bad that I never get around to reviewing these boxes on time.  They really do ship on time and I take full blame for waiting to get them up on here.  The box was full as usual and I can see chips on top so that’s a good sign.

There are two cards in the box this month.  One is the normal one that tells us the theme, Savor Every Moment, and the other reminds you that Mother’s Day was in May.

Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Twists

Pretzels are one of my favourite snacks.  I do have a preference for the straight ones but curvy pretzels are better than no pretzels.  These ones are obviously gluten free and made with corn starch and potato starch.   The bag has 110 calories so a nice size for a snack.

Jackson’s Honest Sea Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips and Sweet Potato Chips

These are the chips I could see from opening the box.  They are fried in coconut oil, which somehow makes them healthier than a regular chip.  They are non-GMO and have some organic ingredients as well.

La Panzanella Multigrain Croccantini

I think this is a cracker-type product.  They are low fat, cholesterol free, and vegan.  There are four thin crackers in the package and they do have salt in the ingredient list so I’m sure they will be tasty.

Enlightened Garlic & Onion Roasted Broad Beans

Bean snacks can go either way for me.  Some of them are great and then the next ones I try are so horrible that I can’t get them out of my mouth fast enough.  I’m not sure how these ones will fall in that spectrum but I will give them a try.

Dolcetto Petites Cookies & Cream Wafer Bites

These look delicious!  I can’t wait to try them and I hope they meet my expectations.  These are a bite sized cookie filled with vanilla cream filling.  Everything about this makes me want to eat them right now and forget about finishing this post.

Yummi Bears Complete Multi-Vitamin

These are made for children and thankfully there are two of them in this package so I can give one to each kid.  These are sugar-free and have natural fruit flavours and colours.  There is also a coupon attached to the package, which is an easy way to get me to buy more of them.

Lance Peanut Butter Bite Size Sandwich Cookies

The cheese version of this that is made by Ritz are things I can eat by the boxful.  I’ve never actually the peanut butter ones though,  These are gluten free and the peanut butter is real.  Shockingly, they actually say that there are partially engineered ingredients in them.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

Bakery On Main Maple Multigrain Muffin Instant Oatmeal

With Fall and Winter coming, the need for oatmeal in the morning is growing.  Besides the oats, this also contains flax, chia, quinoa, and amaranth.   I don’t mind those things when they are added in like that.  This should be a good treat from the normal oatmeals that we have.

Mandy’s Rich Chocolate Cookie Thins

There feels like there might be five cookies in this package.  They are dusted with a caramel sugar and according to the package the best thing you can eat.  Let’s face it, it’s a cookie and I’m going to eat them and that’s all that matters.

Madegood Chocolate Banana Granola Bar

These are the smallest little granola bars ever.  They have the longest list of things they are free from that I have seen.  They are also made in a factory that has never touched anything that could be an allergen ever.  I could put these in the lunches for the girls but I think they will come to work with me so I avoid the cupcakes in the cafeteria.

Wowbutter

I have a confession.  I hate these.  I have tried it before and think they taste nothing like peanut butter and I can’t stand them.  I can try to see if the girls will have them on toast I guess.  Ick.

Banza Chickpea Pasta Mac And Cheese White Cheddar

I do not eat mac and cheese all that often.  My kids eat it every chance they can.   I think we can substitute this in with some hot dogs and not hear about it.  The only thing that will get questioned is why it’s white and not yellow.

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.  I only have a few boxes left and I still enjoy seeing what shows up.
