I love the Love with Food subscription service, I’ve loved the boxes they’ve sent me, and the fact that they donate a meal to a hungry child every time a box is purchased. In fact, I’ve fallen in love and purchased many of the brands featured in the Love with Food boxes- for example I recently bought a whole ten pack of those corn snacks they sent in their last box and I wrote about here.
However, this months box – for me – was pretty disappointing. While the products weren’t terrible per se, they weren’t thrilling or interesting, and they certainly were not the yummy goodies that I associate with their monthly boxes. The product I was most excited about was dried cherries – and that for me is saying a lot. That being said, I want to make clear that some people will love this months box – but personally I feel the products, and selection were lack-luster.
Feel free, as always, to let me know what you think in the comments below! And before I show you what I received, I’d like to let you know that I will continue to subscribe to Love With Food because one unimpressive box doesn’t spoil the fantastic experience that I’ve had so far as a subscriber! So here’s what was in this months box:
Skinny Dipping Pretzels by East Shore, Key Lime with Ginger Mustard by East Shore, Vegan Lemony Lemon, and the Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie by the Sun Flour Baking Company, Dried Montmerency Cherries by Cherry Bay Orchards, Coconut Toffee Peanuts by Sconza Candies, Gin Gins Super Strength Ginger Caramel Candy by The Ginger People, and Tangerine Glee Gum.
The mustard was good, as were the pretzels. As I said, the products weren’t terrible – it’s just that speaking from a point of value – I can get a larger bag of pretzels at the bodega up the block for a dollar. The Glee gum is a product that is widely available, and the sample was tiny. The Coconut Toffee Peanuts just didn’t deliver for me – and again, I could get a similar product in my local bodega. The Vegan cookies weren’t amazing, and the two Gin Gins samples weren’t impressive either. The cherries were delicious, but I just don’t feel like the most impressive product in my Love with Food box should be dried cherries- a widely, easily acquired, not special product.
