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.

20170712_200206

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.

20170712_200215

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.

20170712_200229

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.

20170712_200222

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.

20170712_200240

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.

20170712_200251

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.

20170712_200301

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.

20170712_200306

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.

20170712_200313

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.

20170712_200321

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.

20170712_200328

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.

 

 

 

Love With Food June 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.

Well, this looks like an odd mix of items.  The box does feel heavier than it has other months so we’ll have to see what else is hiding in there.

There is a card in the box that tells you the theme for the month, You Got This and a little bit about why this works for June.

20170612_184145

FlapJacked Protein Smoothie With Greek Yogurt Mix

This is a vanilla bean flavoured mix that you add to a cup of milk.  I guess you can add this into a normal smoothie as well if you wanted to.  I haven’t been drinking many smoothies lately because I just had them too often and now cannot be arsed to make them anymore.  This doesn’t expire until September of 2018 though so I can keep it in the cupboard and on that day I need a smoothie I can whip it up.

20170612_184224

Janice & Melanie Original Cheese Straws

I’m pretty sure I’ve had these before and they are a salty delicious snack that I liked.  They say you should have them with wine and cheese and I can’t see the point to that.  They are quite rich but I’m good with that.

20170612_184241

Lance PB&J Toasty Crackers

This is a grape jelly and peanut butter sandwich made from crackers.  Why would someone market this and not just make it at home?  I get that it’s convenient but it’s so simple and cheap to just do.  You could even pop them into a ziplock bag and BOOM….portable. I don’t get it.

20170612_184252

Zouq Jubilee Mix

These are the kind of thing that I’m sure I won’t like because they are too spicy and then they become something I find delicious.  I just had a similar mix a few days ago and enjoyed it so I’m looking forward to this one now.

20170612_184304

iwon! Nutrition Protein Chips

These are sriracha flavoured so I will not eat them.  I don’t enjoy that flavour and the last time I had these chips in a flavour I did want to eat, I couldn’t get past the texture and taste of the chip itself.  I will give these to my Hubby and see if he’ll want them.

20170612_184314

Beanitos Baked White Bean Crunch

Someone, please explain to me why they make snacks that are mac & cheese flavoured?????  Who wants to have a chip thing that has that flavour?  Beyond that, these are a baked bean chip that has 4g of protein and no trans fats.

20170612_184329

Shine Organics Elevate Squeeze

This is another item I will not eat.  In no way do I want to squash out mush into my mouth.  All of this seems like a horrible idea.  This is just icky to me all around.

20170612_184340

Daelmans Stroopwafel

These make up for the stuff above.  I don’t warm them on my tea like you are supposed to, I just eat them as is.  They are chewy and gooey and wonderful and they sent me two!  Happy!

20170612_184350

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps

I LOVE THESE!!!!!!!!  I buy them all the time, so getting a bag in any box makes my day.  They are the absolute best way to have a pretzel and I cannot say enough good things about them.  Buy these if you ever see them!!!

20170612_184402

Mediterra Bell Pepper & Green Olive Savory Bar

Well, this also sounds disgusting to me.  Sometimes I think people just make up blends of things, call them healthy, and hope people buy them because it might be good for you.  I have nothing to say about this bar.

20170612_184408

Divina Fig Spread

I have received a few of these before and I have no clue what to do with them.  Do I spread it on toast?  Mix it with something?  If anyone reading has any ideas I am open to them.  I do like the taste of figs so I want to try this but I really don’t know how.

20170612_184415

Angel Mints

These are a hard peppermint.  I was hoping that they would be chewy but they are in fact like those pastel pillow mints that everyone’s grandma always had.

20170612_184424

Minute Ready To Serve Brown Rice & Quinoa

I have never tried the ones of these with quinoa but I use the plain rice ones all the time.  These are great to make as an easy side dish when there are other things going on and you need to eat now.

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.

 

 

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.

20170528_175806

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.

20170528_175823

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.

20170528_175830

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.

20170528_175857

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.

20170528_175907

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.

20170528_175914

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.

20170528_175922

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.

20170528_175929

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.

20170528_175946

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.

20170528_175955

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.

20170528_180004

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.

The box arrived safely and hopefully full of goodies!

The theme this month is “Be The Change”.  They want you to find one small thing that you’d like to change and just go ahead and do it.  The snacks for this month are all-natural and hopefully changing the way snacking happens.

180 Snacks Almond Pops with Blueberries and Almond Rice Pops with Mange

These look like they are going to be amazing!  They are little clusters of almonds, rice, and fruits that are baked until crunchy.

20170517_183641

Sensible Foods Apple Harvest Crunch Dried Fruit

I have had something similar to these before and really liked them.  They have a different texture than you would expect and it makes them delicious.

20170517_183703

Crown Nut Co. Maple Bacon Flavored Almonds

I’m not sure this could get much better.  Almonds are great, bacon is great, and the addition of maple can only make it better.

20170517_183714

Ginny Bakes Organics Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are gluten free and obviously organic.  It’s a great sized snack and it’s hard to mess up a chocolate chip cookie.

20170517_183723

Wonder Well Water with Peach

The only ingredients in this are water and flavour.  We always need juice boxes for Bug’s lunch so this will get used up that way.

20170517_183733

Dang Toasted Coconut Chips

Both of these bags are Salted Cacao flavoured.  I would like them better if they were plain toasted coconut.  I’m sure these will be tasty though and a much better choice for a chocolate fix than some other options.

20170517_183744

The GFB Dark Chocolate Coconut Balls

These are a soft ball made from dates and covered in coconut.  They are a super concentrated form of energy snack and give you 100 calories per package.

20170517_183752

Artisan Tropic Plantain Strips

I have never had a plantain strip before, I wonder if they are like banana chips?  These are seasoned with sea salt and I’m hoping they will be good.

20170517_183802

Kitchen Crafted Sprd

This is a mayo type condiment that is Creole Kicker flavoured.  It’s probably really good in a BLT.  I am okay with things that are a little spicy so I’m hoping this fits that instead of being crazy hot.

20170517_183810

Loacker Milk Chocolate Bar

Does this not totally look like a Kinder ripoff to you????  It has a cream filling and wafers and the pail of milk on the package.  I love Kinder so this seems like a win.

20170517_183818

Kashi Chewy Nut Butter Bar

I’ve had other Kashi bars but haven’t even seen this type before.  It also sounds delicious, kinda like most of the items this month.  All bars like this end up in my desk to handle the hunger attacks that hit in the afternoon.

20170517_183827

Surf Sweets Organic Fruity Bears

These gummies have no artificial colours and flavours.  They also appear to be coated in sugar, making them my favourite type of gummy.  There are only five in each bag so the chance of me eating both in one go.

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’m also glad to be caught up in my reviews!

I take the picture after but the box comes wrapped in plastic so it’s protected.  Inside t is as full as ever.

The theme for March is Happy Go Lucky.  They say they want to encourage us to worry less and smile more, helped by the snacks in the box.

20170314_195902

Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs

These are a white cheddar flavoured bag of things that look like Cheetos but are made from chickpeas.  White cheddar is not one of my go-to flavours but these are probably good.  They are gluten-free, kosher, vegan, and non-GMO.

20170314_195912

Tasty Organic Emoji-Shaped Chocolate Cookies

Well, how can you go wrong with a cookie?  There are six face shapes in the bag and I can’t wait to eat them all!

20170314_195925

Wise Popcorn x 2

I love popcorn.  I would eat it all the time if that was an option.  These are sea salt flavoured, which is great.  They don’t have a bunch of calories per bag either.

20170314_195935

Ruger 2 Wafer Waffles

I have no idea what these are but it looks like a waffle shaped version of these wafer stick cookies.  They have a vanilla cream filling and I think I might just eat these now.

20170314_195943

18 Rabbits Date, Pecan, & Coconut Bar

This is a very dense feeling bar.  It has a combination of good things and no refined sugars.  It is a little high in calories but I think it’s probably filling so it balances out.

20170314_195955

Enstrom Almond Toffee x 2

These are a milk chocolate version of this.  It feels hard and crunchy inside the package.  I like all of the things in this so I’m sure I will enjoy these.

20170314_200011

Chocolatreie Monbana Chocolat Salon De The x 2

In tiny little letters, it says this is a traditional chocolate drink.  I think it’s just hot chocolate really.  It’s not the right season here for me to be craving hot chocolate so these will live in the cupboard for a bit.

20170314_200024

Route 11 Potato Chips

Ooooooo….. dill pickle chips!  Nice.  This is a rather tiny bag of them but they are kettle cooked and have no trans fats.

20170314_200033

Torie & Howard Chewie Fruities

These look like Starburst chews.  They are organic and have more enlightened flavours like blood orange and honey.

20170314_200042

Wild Garden Snack Box to Go

This is a box containing veggie chips, which I love, and hummus, which I hate.  I think I’ll pull the chips out and toss the dip.  It’s a great idea though for people who like both of them.

There are two types of little loose candies in the box.  There are three Espresso Candy and two Treehugger Bubble Gums.  I can’t see myself eating the coffee flavoured ones but I love the gum.

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’m also glad to be caught up in my reviews!

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.

The box was nice and full again.  The other bonus is that I am FINALLY caught up on these boxes and don’t have one waiting in the wings to be put up on the blog.  So excited.

The card included gives you the theme for the month, Follow Your Heart.  It’s all about doing things that keep you motivated and giving into courage and strength to try new things.

20170213_140657Annie Chun’s Original Seaweed Crisps

These look interesting.  They have a rice chip on one side and seaweed on the other.  I eat rice chips all the time and I eat seaweed in sushi so I think I’ll like these.  They have a light seasoning of salt, which can only be good.  They are also vegan, gluten free, and cholesterol free.

20170213_140705Blue Diamond Mini Nut-Thins

I wish this was a bigger bag!  These are a mix of almond and rice baked into a cracker.  They have a touch of salt on them.  They are wheat and gluten free.

20170213_140713Laughing Giraffe Organics Lemon Snakaroon

I like anything coconut and I like macaroons so I think this little ball is going to be delicious.  It covers many dietary options as it’s vegan, non-GMO, organic, and gluten-free.

20170213_140723Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle

They sent two bags of this and I’m happy to give them a go.  These are salted caramel with dark chocolate drizzle.  They seem like they are going to be a very thin crunchy brownie with deliciousness on top.  Let’s hope so.

20170213_140733Hagensborg Chocolates Truffle Pig

They sent two flavours of this one, Dark Peppermint and Milk Caramel.  Truffles are not something I would normally seek out but I will try one of these and if I don’t like them then I can give the other to Hubby.

20170213_140740Heavenly Organics Mint Chocolate Honey Patties

I have no clue how they make this with only honey, chocolate, and peppermint oil.  Shouldn’t there be more things to hold it together???  Due to this, they are gluten, dairy, and soy free.

20170213_140809Iwon! Nutrition Protein Chips

It’s hard to tell but I think these are like a tortilla chip.  They are cinnamon french toast flavour, and I’m not sure that will be very good.

20170213_140817Watusee Foods Organic Chckpeastos

I do like roasted chickpeas but this is not a flavour I would ever eat.  I’m not sure what I’ll do with these since my husband and kids won’t eat them either.

20170213_140825Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash

Who doesn’t want to eat little moustaches?????  I cannot remember what speculoos tastes like but I don’t think the Belgian’s do desserts bad, ever!

20170213_140834Pretzel Perfection Twice-Baked Pretzel Sticks

YAY!!!! I love the salty goodness of pretzels and I don’t think these will be that spicy.  The whole bag is only 110 calories and they are gluten free.

20170213_140841Snikiddy Baked Mac n’Cheese Puffs

I honestly do not know what to make of these.  Why would I want to eat crunchy macaroni?  Getting past that these are made with non-GMO corn and rice, they have no corn syrup, and are certified gluten and wheat free.  I think these will go to the girls because I fell they will be not to my taste.

20170213_140859Yum Earth Organic Lollipops

They sent an assortment of flavours of these pops.We have Watermelon Wet-Face, Googly Grape, Blueberry Tooberry, Strawberry Smash, and Pomegranate Pucker.  They are creative with the names if nothing else.  I don’t eat these very often so these will go straight into the girls treat bag.

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’m also glad to be caught up in my reviews!

 

 

Love With Food Deluxe January 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.

I’m getting closer to where I should be with this box!  This is January’s and I was a little concerned since the right side of the box looks like it was soaked with something.  Opening it up, I could see nothing damaged or leaking so I guess it was all good.

The theme for this month is Seize The Day.  It’s all about making changes and resolutions by implementing new routines and habits.

20170224_194722Honey Stinger Kids’ Organic Waffle

I have no idea what kind of odd waffle this is but it’s chocolate.  It has no artificial colours, preservatives, flavours, or HFCS.  It kind of seems like it’s an energy bar.

20170224_194730Goodie Girl Quinoa Choco-Chip Cookies

I’ve had these before and while they will never take the place of a “real” chocolate chip cookie, they do in a pinch.  They are gluten free and only 130 calories for the package.

20170224_194744Emmy’s Organics Organic Coconut Cookie

They sent two flavours of this, vanilla bean and dark cacao.  They feel like a chewy cookie through the package.  I like coconut and I’m hoping these will be similar to a macaroon.

20170224_194813Silettante Chocolate Covered Toffee

They always seem to include a group of small candies in the box.  This month there is three of these in Creamy Latte, Mocha, and Espresso.  I guess that makes them coffee candies.  These will be good when I just need a quick fix to get me through a craving.

20170224_194823Creme de Piroline Cream Filled Wafers

OMG!!!! I love these things!  You can normally only find them at Christmas around here and I never buy them because I will eat the whole package at one time.  This is a little pack of two, with a dark chocolate filling.  I’m going to hide these away and savour them one day when I get a few minutes alone.

20170224_194833Red Plate Foods Free From Vegan Granola

This granola looks good.  It is made wit oats, applesauce, cranberries, maple syrup, and some spices.  I think this will be delicious added to my morning yogurt and might be more filling than the plain yogurt I’ve been eating.

20170224_194841Aloha Daily Good Greens Dietary Supplement

I have stopped drinking smoothies so I’m not sure when I will use this up.  It is chocolate flavoured.  I simply canot just add it to water and drink it.

20170224_194857Door County Original Potato Chips

Who doesn’t love chips?  These are kettle chips that have only three ingredients, potatoes, sunflower oil, and salt.  I’m hoping these are super crisp and salty, just the way chips should be!

20170224_194918Dave’s Sweet Tooth Crunch

I have had the milk chocolate version of this before and holy cow it’s good.  The peanut butter one is probably just as good.  I’m both sad and glad that the packages are small this time.

20170224_194929Thinables Cinnamon Swirl Cookies

These look interesting.  This whole bag only has 100 calories!  They feel super tiny through the packaging but as long as the taste is big, that’s what matters.

Truvia Sweetener Samples

They sent out a box of seven packets of granular sweetener and 2 packets of Nectar.  I have a confession to make…..I think stevia tastes horrible.  I have never tried this brand before but I’m so wary!  The Nectar might be better since it’s blended with honey but stevia changes the taste of everything you put it in.  It tastes to me like a chemical even though I know it’s less of one then whatever makes up Splenda.

20170224_194952Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Crackers

These organic Maple Carrot Crisp crackers are puzzle shaped so you can play with your food as you eat.  They have Vitamins A, B, C, and D and are non-GMO and nut free.I’m not sure if the girls will eat them but I know I probably will.

20170224_195110Prince of Peace Ginger Candy and Ginger Honey Crystals Instant Tea

I know ginger candies are good for you but I don’t really like the taste of them.  I think I might save these for a day I feel nauseated.  The instant tea will probably be good but again it would not be my first choice.

My sisth 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.

Love With Food Deluxe December 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.

Hey look I’m getting closer to being in the right month of this!  The box is full once again and off the top, the snacks look good!

There are two cards in the box this month.  The top one is letting us know that the box was curated by Tiffani Thiessen.  She has a cooking show so maybe that’s why she’s doing this too.  The second one is a Holiday card from the company.  This obviously would have much more sense if I’d opened the box in December, as it should have been.

20170205_192634Luna Whole Nutrition Bar x 2

These are sample sized bars of Canadian Made goodness.  These are a dark chocolate hazelnut flavour and are gluten free and non-GMO.  I’ve had other Luna Bars before but not this flavour and type.  I’m sure that I will like these ones too.

20170205_192643Salmas Corn Crackers x 2

These seem to just be a regular cracker if crackers were made of corn.  There are three in each pack.  They are 80 calories per pack and have 0 fat and sugar.

20170205_192655Horizon Organic Fruit Snacks

Like I mentioned the last post, I love all things gummy so I’m going to eat these and not even worry about it.  As the package says, they are certified organic and give you 100% of your vitamin C for the day.

20170205_192708Nib Mor Bar

This seems to be a piece of dark chocolate cacao nibs.  I don’t care much for dark chocolate so I think this will go to my hubby.  It is gluten and GMO-free.

20170205_192726GoGo Squeeze Yogurtz

Shelf stable dairy freaks me out.  Milk is made to go bad!  I think (make that know) that this will go to the kids.  I do not like these squeeze tube things in any type and am pretty sure our family is keeping some of the yogurt companies in business with the amounts the girls eat in a week.  To make it even worse for me…..it’s banana flavour. Egh….

20170205_192738Off The Cob Chips x 2

These are a type of tortilla chip made with sweet corn.  They are non-GMO, Gluten free, have no msg, are kosher, and low sodium.

20170205_192835Veggie Pasta Chips

This might be a very odd thing.  These are pieces of pasta that are baked into a chip.  I hate kale but I’m thinking the spinach and broccoli will cover that up.  These are a vegan snack and also non-GMO.

20170205_192849BarkThins Snacking Chocolate

These look amazing!  This is dark chocolate and almonds with sea salt make into something like a bark.  Chocolate and almond is one of my very favourite things and I’m not sure these are going to last the evening.

20170205_192911Lucy’s Ginger Snaps

I have no idea how they even made these.  They have no peanuts, tree nuts, milk, or eggs.  How do you make cookies without milk and eggs???  It’s a good thing I like ginger snaps.  My Baba always had a jar of them in her cupboard and they are a happy memory for me.

20170205_192931Horizon Organic Cheddar Cheesy Deluxe

This is not something I ever expected to receive in this box.  Mac and cheese is not a snack.   That being said the girls love mac and cheese and usually have it for lunch once a week.  The cheese sauce in this is not a powder but an actual sauce so that is different.

20170205_192951Baron Peppermint Bark

Peppermint bark is one of those things that only appears around Christmas and I try to not gobble as much as I can in one month.  This one is made from premium milk chocolate and has raspberry in it as well.  I will hide it and sneak a piece when I need a moment to myself.

My fifth 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.

 

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.

20170203_213910Nutryttiva Banana Bar x 2

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.

20170203_213922Marlo’s Bakeshop Chocolate Chip Brownie Biscotti

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.

20170203_213929Tasty Brand Organic Fruit Snacks

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.

20170203_213940SunRype Fruit To Go

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.

20170203_214002Zouq Jubilee Mix

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.

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.

20161013_175318

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.

20161013_175329

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.

20161013_175339

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.

20161013_175351

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.

20161013_175405

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.

20161013_175413

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.

20161013_175420

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.

20161013_175429

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!

20161013_175438

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.

20161013_175445

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!

20161013_175451

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!

20161013_175502

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.
