Love with Food is a monthly subscription box that sends gourmet food samples to your doorstep. What I love about this company is that they donate a meal to a hungry child for each box you buy. Love with food costs $10/month plus $2 shipping, so it is a pretty good deal!

August 2013 Love With Food box

This month’s theme is Backyard BBQ. All of the snacks are “to help you chill while you grill” and it is right up our alley!



Snapea Crisps from Harvest Snaps – I loved these! B, not so much, and S will eat just about anything, so that doesn’t tell you much. They were light and crispy, kind of like a cheese puff, only made from peas. Again, I liked them, but I can see how it might not be to everyone’s liking. More for me!

Original Creamy Praline from Aunt Sally’s – This was very creamy and melts in your mouth. I liked it as a treat for sure!

All Natural Spice Rub from The Dizzy Pig BBQ Co. – B was very excited about this, and now he wants to try a bunch of other rubs, or even experiment with making his own. I guess he was really talking it up at work too. It’s nice to see him excited about a subscription box, ha ha! This was enough for two chicken breasts, and they were delicious. The rub had a slight kick to it, but it wasn’t too much for me (I like everything mild-to-medium, B likes things medium-to-hot and he still thought it had a kick) B asked me to take a picture of the cooked chicken to put on the blog, (he was proud of it) so here it is:



Crunchers from Sahale Snacks – This was a kind of trail mix snack with almonds, sesame seeds, and cranberries. It was a nice change from my usual snacks.

All Natural Salsa from El Pinto -We haven’t tried this yet, but I like how it is in a little container like a travel applesauce or pudding. It would be great to take on a picnic.

Sea Salt Potato Crisps from Good Boy Organics – I was not a fan of these. They are actually made from potato flakes and they taste like it. B finished these, and I got the Snapeas and we were both happy.

Sugar-Free Fresh Mints from Project7 -I did not expect these to have as strong of a mint flavor as they do. I was pleasantly surprised. And they aren’t very hard, so you can chew them pretty easily, which again was a shock to me do to the size of each mint. I’d buy more of these.

Amsterdam Waffle Cookie from Rip van Wafels – We are saving this for the weekend when we are both drinking coffee at the same time. It is recommended that you warm this cookie over a mug of a hot beverage before you eat it, so that is what we want to do!

I really liked this month’s box, and B was excited about it as well. We’ll eat everything, so that is a huge plus. In fact, most of it is already gone, ha ha!
