July Love With Food Review

I want to start out by saying that I think Love With Food has been doing a great job lately. At first I was kinda meh with them, but I've thoroughly enjoyed the past couple of boxes. Love with food is a gourmet snack subscription box that has been around for awhile, well as far as subscription boxes go.  It is $12 a month, but the price goes down when you buy longer plans. This box is special because they donate a meal with every box, so that should make you feel awesome.

Use code FBGIFT for two bucks of your first month (basically free shipping). I didn't feel right putting coupon in the title of the post since it is only for two bucks.

 This month's theme was "Under the Boardwalk." I think they're trying to go with fun summer themes for now. 
(The thing on the top is an info card detailing all the products in the box)

KuKuRuZa Gourmet Hawaiian Salted Caramel Popcorn ($3.00?)- Salted Caramel seems to be all the rage, and I love it! Salty and sweet make a perfect combo in my book.  This was a lot better than the popcorn they sent in another box, because you could actually taste salt in this one!

Uncle Henry's Handmade Pretzel ($0.50?)- This was like a giant version of mini pretzels (like Rold Gold).  I liked it, but I think it may have been too crunchy.
Lord Nut Levington Spicy Bloody Mary Peanuts ($1.17)- I haven't tried these yet, but it sounds terrific, I love spicy things.

Nature's Bakery Strawberry Fig Bar ($1.75)- These were awesome. Kinda like fig newtons, only better. The strawberry flavor was definitely noticeable, and really complimented the fig. 

RealSticks BBQ flavor ($0.82)- I was a slim jim addict as a child, and this was like a step up from them. It had an awesome smoky flavor.  
Twangerz Snack Toppings ($0.25)- This was probably the most interesting thing in the box. It is actually different flavors of salt. The ones I got were Lime, Chili Lime, Lemon Lime, and Pickle. I had the Lemon Lime on some popcorn with some ranch powder and it tasted awesome.  

Angel Mint Orange Salt Water Taffy ($0.72)- I really like salt water taffy. This was no exception. It was sweet, soft, and delicious.

Necco Wafers ($0.20)- I find it funny that it says "The original candy wafer" on the packaging. Because there are literally no other candy wafers out there. And Necco things aren't very good, just for the nostalgia.

Hello Fresh $25 off "gift card"-  I am not sure if they deliver to my state yet, so I'll see if I can put this to use. 

The total value of this box was $8.41. This was a pretty sub par value, but I loved the products and how they matched with the theme.  And the meal costs something I'm sure, but probably not $3.50.

Verdict: Pretty good although the value was lower than usual.


  1. I agree about the theming. They are hitting it out of the park. I loved this box too!
