Love with Food Review

Posted on Jul 23 2013 - 6:10pm by Susan Bewley

Are you someone who loves food? I will freely admit that I am – I'm one of those girls who enjoys cooking at home and experimenting with new treats I found at the grocery store. Recently, I discovered a subscription box that was perfect for foodies like me – the Love with Food Box. This box features yummy foods that were hand selected by this company, allowing you to try yummy, all-natural foods at a discounted price. Curious about trying out this food box, I reached out to Love with Food, who was nice enough to let me review one of their boxes!

 

Love with Food: The Cookie Department Great Full Cookie

In my house, everyone loves cookies. When I saw this cookie, I was curious and scared at the same time. I had never tried a sweet potato cookie, and I have learned that vegan desserts are very hit or miss. While the sweet potatoes made me a bit cautious, I do love dried cranberries in desserts! I wouldn't say the cookies are bad, but they are very bland. They have a very slight sweet potato taste. While I think they could use a bit more of a sweetener and maybe some more cranberries, they aren't bad when it comes to vegan desserts.

Love with Food: Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserve

If you haven't tried Bonne Maman jam or preserve, you are missing something. I tried this jam for the very first time during one of our trips to Jungle Jim's (if you live in the Cinci area, go – now!) and have been in love sense. In all honesty, we don't buy any other store bought jams now, and its only replaced when we can find homemade varieties at farmer's markets. Having already tried the strawberry preserves and knowing they were amazing, I couldn't bring myself to open this little jar. It is just too cute!

Love with Food: Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning

Okay, how can you not laugh at the name of this seasoning? I saw this while traveling and giggled when I first saw it. This is another product I have tried before, and I have to say it's a great seasoning salt. A bit on the salty side but very very yummy!

Love with Food: Snapz Premium Tomato Crunch

This was another one of those products in the Snapz box that wasn't really too sure what to think of, especially since I'm not a huge tomato fan. I love cooking with tomatoes but I normally don't eat them straight. I won't lie, they were about what I was expecting of dried tomatoes. They taste like rubbery tomatoes and are very sour. Definitely not something I would recommend! I'm very glad I tried them in this box first so that I know to avoid these in the future!

Love with Food: Biscotti Bari Authentic Almond Biscotti

Oh my, where do I start with this biscotti. Let me start with saying that it is one of the best store bought biscotti's I have tried. They don't really compete with homemade, but it's close! These biscotti's have a very nice, amaretto-like flavor and chunks of real almonds. While I would normally only eat a biscotti with coffee, this is one of the few I would actually eat as a plain cookie.

Love with Food: Bali's Best Latte Candy

Being a coffee household, we couldn't wait to try these little candies. Being the nice blogger I am, I let my husband try it. He loves coffee flavored candy. When he first put it in his mouth, he had to disagree with it tasting like a latte – more like espresso! While he only had one piece to try, he seemed to think it was pretty good!

Love with Food: Mrs May's Mini Crunch Cranberry Almond

These were the mystery item in this Love with Food Box. When I first saw these little cranberry almond crunches, I was curious to try them. I have to say they were disappointing. What's so bad is that they were almost perfect! My problem with them is actually the sesame seeds. They seem to throw off the whole taste of these treats and overpower the cranberries. To say the least, this was a bit of a bummer.

Love with Food: Hand Drip Premium Coffee – Sumatra

Even though I'm a big coffee drinker, the Caffe Borsa Hand Drip Premium Coffee was a bit odd to me. I had never heard of brewing coffee like this so, it was a totally new experience. Making the coffee itself was interesting, but a fun experience. I could see this being really useful people who are on the go, traveling, or wants a yummy cup of coffee in the office. Best of all, it tastes great!

Love with Food: Overall

Overall, I have to say that I loved the Love with Food Box. It allowed me to try a variety of fun, interesting food that I never would have tried if it wasn't available in the box. At $10 a box, this subscription box really felt like a steal. If you are looking for a fun, inexpensive box to exposure you and your family to some healthy treats, I highly recommend checking out the Love with Food Subscription Box!

    That does all sound good. I have actually tried the jelly and it is good. Not too sure about all of the items, but since they do not give you a lot of them and you can taste them and then buy them if you want. I have to admit the biscotti does not sound good, but it is a sample…

    Thanks!

    This sounds like a great box service!  I am particularly intrigued by the coffee that you got – I am going to have to track some down…

    That's a good idea. I can't tell you how much money has been wasted trying some different food only to hate it and throw it out. The tomato snack? I'll pass!

    This sounds like a great idea, we are always looking for new (healthy) snacks to try. The tomato crunch and the almond and cranberry crunch sound delicious and like something my kids would be willing to try.

    You had me at cookie! This is a great way to get myself to try new snacks, I always seem to gravitate towards the same snacks.

    Oh my! I love all the goodies your received. The slap ya mama cajun seasoning made me laugh.

    Very good idea of this box with goodies, here in Brazil there are box glam but still not seen any of goodies, so the makes, but its an excellent idea

      I know some of the boxes will ship overseas, you just have to ask. I can’t remember which one does it off the top of my head but they usually put the natural products that can handle going through customs and the trip overseas.

    Only those who are good cooks and love food can appreciate the taste of good stuff cooked by others. Loved the way you present the dishes 🙂

    Some very nice goodies.  A great way to try different things.

    You wrote a really great review, I would like to try a number of these things now! Thanks

    A great idea and a wide variety of food to try for all tastes to enjoy.  Too bad about the cookies – my family loves cookies.  The tomatoes actually interested me.  I've never heard of anything like this but love fresh tomatoes.  This would be a good way to have them on hand all the time.  Nicely done review to give us a real look at the products.

    I absolutely enjoyed/devoured the box of items I got a few months back. I ended up trying it because I wanted to see what the little chocolate truffle turtle looked like-I am weird like that. I had to giggle when I saw your "Slap Ya Mama" Cajun Seasoning, this would be something I would buy just so I could tell people I used it in a recipe.  I think the favorite part of the box that I got was the Blueberry Crunch {similar to your Cranberry Almond}. Love With Food really does give some interesting and tasty treats in each box-plus I really admire what their mission is.

    I love the idea of a subscription box. Would be great as a gift for someone or myself and I intend to try it out 🙂

    I have always been tempted  to try a subscription box but have not followed through yet. This one is not overly expensive so this may  be my first try.

    These are all fun and healthful food I want to try.  Thank you so much for recommending.
