Love With Food Deluxe July 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.

So this is a really late review of this box but I just got distracted by the shiny new boxes that arrived after it did.

Bandar Garlic Naan Chips

I randomly grabbed naan chips in the grocery one day and became addicted.  They are so delicious and I have to say they are now my favourite type of cracker.  These ones are garlic flavoured but that isn’t going to stop me from loving them.  These won’t last very long.

The Daily Crave Veggie Chips x 2

Veggie chips are a close second to those naan chips in my loving list.  These chips are gluten-free, vegan, kosher, non-GMO, and have no dairy, artificial flavours, or hydrogenated fats.The packaging is a fake newspaper that tells stories about people who do things while after eating these chips.

Cosmos Creations Salted Caramel Premium Puffed Corn

Okay, now this makes three things right off the top that I love.  Popcorn would easily be one of my desert island foods.  Caramel corn is not really my favourite flavour but I do like it.  This package is made with non-GMO corn, is gluten-free, has no HFCS, and supposedly has no hulls or kernels in it.

Dick & Jane Educational Snacks States & Capitals

I received the president’s version of these cookies in a box a long time ago.  I don’t know that I learned much from eating them but they tasted good.  These are made with whole grains and are vanilla flavoured.

Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash

These are something else that I’ve had before and they are amazing!  I have only had speculoos in these so I can’t say if it’s that flavour I like or if it’s the cookies but I am not going to turn these down.

Nothing But The Fruit Real Fruit Bites in Concord Grape & Raspberry Chia

These sorta look like dog treats.  I guess they are a type of fruit leather that has been cut into cubes.  Each package contains a full serving of fruit.  These are also vegan and non-GMO.

Emmy’s Organics Dark Cacao Organic Coconut Cookie

This feels like a soft round brownie bite.  It also happens to be grain and gluten free and vegan.  Sometimes these little nuggets are super tasty and sometimes they are crap so we’ll play the game with this one once I eat it.

Aloha Organic Protein Bar in Peanut Butter & Jelly

This seems delicious!  And then I read the back and it says it’s made with peas and pumpkin seeds.  I’m still hoping for the best and I’m sure it can’t be that bad.  The peanut butter taste should cover most of the odd flavours I think.

Teddy Soft Bakes

I don’t know if this is one giant bear in a box of a bunch of smaller bears.  It says it has a chocolate filling and it’s made by the teddy Grahams people.  I like Teddy Grahams, well the chocolate chip ones anyways.  This may end up being a snack for the girls, who I think will like it.

Watusee Organic Chickpeatos

These are also something I’ve had before and I think they are disgusting.  I don’t really like chickpeas at the best of times and adding tomato to that is worse.  I don’t really have anything else to say about these.

Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops

They included two of these in the box, both blueberry tooberry flavour.  These will go straight to the girls candy bag.   I just can’t be bothered to eat sugar this slowly anymore.

Ocean’s Halo Coconut Seaweed Strips

I think these might be horrible.  I find the things with seaweed to be so fishy tasty that I vomit.  I do like coconut and seaweed in like sushi but just on its own, it’s not so nice.

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.  This was my last box and I have enjoyed the variety of snacks that I got to try.  Not all were winners but the majority I ate and liked.
