Love With Food is a fun monthly food subscription box that lets you discover new & exciting all natural and/or organic snacks. Subscriptions start as low as $10/month and with every purchased box, a meal is donated to a food bank.You also get to review every item in your box after trying to earn points. These points can then be used in the Love With Food store to purchase more of what you love!
Each box also has a theme and this month the box was curated by Chef Ryan Scott with the theme "Flavors of Fall". Here is a breakdown of the goods:
Tuxedo Popcorn from Kukuruza: Holy bleep is this gourmet popcorn good! I'm almost upset that I ate it as it has put all the grocery store popcorn that I usually consume to shame. The tuxedo flavor is caramel corn with a drizzle of white chocolate. AMAZING! If you go to their site they have a couple dozen more flavors to choose from. I'm particularly excited to try the maple bacon flavor... yum bacon.
Green & Black's Organic, Dark 70% Chocolate: Yes! Dark chocolate is a fav of mine and 70% provides just the right amount of sweetness. This chocolate was so delicious with a glass of Bota Box RedVolution wine. Oh, haven't tried it? I suggest you do ASAP. Nothing is as glorious as wine & chocolate! The two bars received even came in a cute little brown satchel (how classy is that?!).
Maple Fudge from Laura Secord: This fudge melted in my mouth. The butteriness of it was unreal. I only got a teeny tiny bit of it though as my darling children devoured the rest before I could even go in for seconds...
Ginger Twist Tea from Mighty Leaf: This tea bag is a work of art! What impressed me before I even steeped it was the elegance of the bag itself. The detail put into this tea bag is unlike anything I've ever seen before. Plus, you can see every ingredient! I felt so fancy steeping my cup of morning tea! Let me to you, the smell while steeping alone was a gift. I'm really taken with this little tea bag and will be purchasing more in the near future.
Almond, Apricot, and Yogurt Bar from Eat Natural: This was way too sweet for me. Although because of that reason my kids gobbled it up. I will probably be making a purchase soon to include in their school lunches.
Rosemary Sea Salt Shortbread from Dancing Deer Baking Co.: Oh wow guys... this hits all the taste buds. I am a sucker for a shortbread cookie and this sweet & savory combo does not disappoint! I literally shook the crumbs into my mouth to make sure I got every last morsel. I don't know who at that company decided it was smart to mix rosemary, sea salt & shortbread together but they should get a raise! So good!!!
Sweet Corn Crunch for Sensible Foods: First question, how the heck do they make these? The website says they are "crunch dried" ...I have no idea what that means but "please sir, may I have another?". These were delicious! Bonus plus plus, my kids sucked them down like little Hoovers. I've been struggling for weeks to find a edible vegetable to fit in their Planet Box lunches and now I think that problem is solved! Bravo Sensible Foods. You now have a new customer.
Authentic Indian Spice Blend for Arora Creations: Arora Creations is the first ever USDA certified organic Indian grocery line in the US. We here in the Dalman house love Indian food. Our favorite being butter chicken. This spice blend is for Bhindi Masala. I believe Bhindi Masala in traditionally made with okra but since I don't care for okra unless it's battered & fried, I will probably make using string beans. Haven't used it yet but plan to include it as a side at our next Indian feast. I will update this post once that happens.
Sweet Potato Popchips from Popchips: I'll be honest. I wasn't thrilled when I saw these in the box. I've tried other flavors of Popchips in the past and have been very disappointed. However, having said that, these sweet potato ones are great. I'm not sure what it is about the sweet potato that makes it so good prepared like this but it's great. The chip is nice and crisp and the flavor has a touch of sweetness. I will be looking for these in my local grocery. I've really need to find alternatives to satisfy my snacking habit, this fits the bill!
