Love with Food is a monthly snack subscription box that comes in either Tasting or Deluxe sizes. The Tasting size gives you 8-10 snacks and costs $9.99 per box ($7.99 with an annual plan). The Deluxe size gives you 16-20 snacks and costs $19.95 per box ($16.50 with an annual plan). I’ve tried Love with Food in the past, but ended up cancelling my subscription due to the cost. I usually just wait around until they send me a discount promo code : )

The February 2016 box celebrates over 1 million food boxes donated to charity and features snacks “just for you.” To be honest, I don’t really know what that meant. It was just a random assortment of snacks with no real coordinated theme. However, they offered me $5 off for Valentine’s Day so I was happy! Overall, this was a decent box. There was only one item I had no real interest in and the others looked promising.
Boardwalk Kettle Corn Popped Chips by Popchips – Mmm these were a perfect lunchbox snack. They satisfied my sweets craving and the 110 calorie bag didn’t make me feel guilty after I ate the whole thing.
Montmorency Cherries by Stoneridge Orchards – Eww cherries! I hate them in all forms. This is the one item I will not even bother trying and will be giving to someone might actually appreciate them.
Power Up Trail Mix by Gourmet Nut – This trail mix is delicious! It was not only a great combination of nuts and dried fruit, but a good size portion too! I spaced it out over three afternoons.
Stellar Strawberry Non-Dairy Fruit & Veggie Blend by Ruby Rocket’s – I had high hopes for this Go-Gurt-like item, but it didn’t meet my expectations. I assumed it’d be more yogurt-y and creamy, but the non-dairy nature pushed it toward gross baby food. I didn’t even finish the tube.
Choco Liege Wafel by Belgian Boys – Another full-size treat! I’ve eaten real waffles in Belgium, so I was curious how this packaged version would hold up. Folks, it was incredible!! I’m actually going to search for these online to buy more. Soft and chewy with high quality chocolate glaze. It’s even better heated in the microwave for 10 seconds. There was none of that processed taste you normally find in mass-market baked goods. A definite winner.
Googly Grape Organic Lollipops by YumEarth – I’m not crazy about lollipops (or hard candy in general), but I’m hoping these organic ones will taste better than normal.
Milk Chocolate Truffles by Baron Chocolatier – Maybe these didn’t hold up well during shipping, but I thought they would taste a lot better. I’d still prefer a Lindt truffle or Gertrude Hawk Smidgen!
Sea Salt Caramels by Liddabit Sweets – Wow, these were chewy! They had a strong caramel and sea salt flavor and I was satisfied with just one.
I was fairly pleased with this box, especially for the $5 price. I knew ahead of time that I’d be getting the chocolate truffles, so the other unknown items that I loved were a bonus. Once again, I enjoyed the variety and still think this box is a great way to sample new snacks before purchasing a full size bag.
