Subscription Box Corner: April 2015 Love With Food Review!

Love With Food - Snack Smart. Do Good.
Love With Food (the link above is a referral link, but don't feel like you have to click! the rest of the links below are non-referral links) was having an "only pay shipping" sale last month, and since the box was only $2, I jumped at the chance to find a subscription service that could finally replace my beloved Goodies Box. Let's dive right into this box since I have now had a chance to try all of the tasty goods!
As always, a box shot! I like that it's red, it sets it apart from other subscription boxes I have seen. Looks like each order gives 1 meal to someone to help fight hunger in America, an added bonus of the service! This is such an awesome cause and concept. Follow them on all their social media listed above!
The openings right off the bat...
Like most subscription boxes these days, Love With Food includes an insert detailing the contents of each box. I love this one! Product information, a brief description, ingredients, very cool!
this "snacking star" is a magnet! I ripped it while trying to pop it out, though. :(
In my very last Goodies box, I received a package of olives like this. Oloves are the same concept from a different brand! I am addicted to olives, so this was right up my alley. The garlic and basil flavors were melded perfectly against the saltiness of the green olives. I ate them straight from the package! The only thing I disliked were they were a teensy bit greasy, which was sort of crazy. There was a watery liquid (not much), and there was oil in there, too. Not a major complaint, though! 4.5/5.
I know I have asked this before, but where do we stand as a collective on the word "yummy"? Okay? Skeevy? Anywho, YUMMY Earth's Natural Sour Beans are much more like gum drop than jelly beans, but they were still really tasty. Not sure sour, though. Still, I could eat a lot of these in the drop of a hat. Almost disintegrating in your mouth because they are natural. Good treat! 4/5.
Mighty Leaf's Green Tea Tropical tea was good, but I'm not a huge fan of hot fruity teas. This was an interesting sort of pineappley tasting tea, but nothing I would personally ever purchase again. I think fruit tea fans would like this a lot, though. 2.5/5.
Back to Nature's honey graham sticks were little tiny graham crackers with a huge crunch. These were good, but rather uninteresting. I think they key here is these are made with natural ingredients and nothing crappy. Honestly, they tasted just as good, though I think they could have been a bit softer. 3.5/5.
Vintage Italia's Pasta Chips\ were amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!! The flavor was insane on these bad boys. They tasted like crackers with a great snap, but they were a bit more airy than crackers. WOW. I was blown away by how good these were and need to get some ASAP. The Garlic Olive Oil flavor is NOT for garlic haters, folks...nothing else to say but damn. Amazingly good. 5/5.
Wild Garden's sea salt quinoa chips and traditional hummus duo was good, but not great. The chips tasted stale, but this isn't the first time I have experiences quinoa chips like this. Maybe that's just the texture, like a stale rice cake only made from quinoa instead. The hummus on the other hand, while not as authentic as it probably should have been, was lemony and garlicky and good. 4/5 for the hummus, 2/5 for the chips.
I chuckled to myself when I saw this Luna bar in here. Deb from It's Always Something is a huge Luna bar fan and I almost saved it to send to her! But, I figured I needed to try it. Ehhh, it tastes like a health bar. The bright, tangy lemon really helped convince me I wasn't just eating twigs and protein. 3/5.
Walker's shortbread cookies are some of the most amazing cookies on the planet. Since they are only made with butter and flour and sugar and salt, well, you can guess why we don't keep 'em around the house. Pure, buttery goodness in every last bite. Melt in your mouth, not too sweet but not salty, the perfect shortbread cookie. Mmmmmm. 10/5.
I am quite pleased with my first Love With Food experience~ Only a couple of minor misses for me, and everything else was quite good! Yay! Have you ever tried Love With Food? Does this look like a good box to you Anything stand out as something you might want to try? They seem to have a lot of sales, so if you're interested in trying this box, sign up for their emails!
