Love with Food– International Delights Theme

January’s Love with Food is themed as International Delights. This might be my last box for a while, regrettably. I am going to slowly savor and cherish this. If you would like to join Love with Food they are $10 and for every box you get they donate a meal to a hungry child.

This months box:

1) Turbana’s Natural Plantain Chips- I’ve never actually had any type of plantain chips, so i’m curious about these.

2) Newtree’s Organic Chocolate in Milk Chocolate with Cinnamon & Dark Chocolate with Belgian Biscuits. These are very itty bitty but look interesting.

3) GoGo Squeez – Apple on the go in AppleStrawberry. I’ve been wanting to try one of these suckers!

4) Firecracker ChocoPod– with sultry sea salt, smokey chipotle and dark chocolate. Best part? Its only 50 calories. It looks very tempting.

5) David Rio’s Tiger Spice Chai- this will have to get in line I have tons of other samples I have yet to try.

6) Kyotofu’s Modern Japanase Dessert (3 flower shaped Shortbread Tea Cookies)– this is a gluten free treat. Kyotofu’s has actually received New York’s Best Cupcake Award from New York Magazine.

7) Lastly, Biscotti’s di Suzy’s Almond Anise Biscotti

That’s it folks!

Holiday Time- Love with Food Box

The Holiday box of Love with Food arrived a few days ago but the holiday preparations have been keeping me busy. I really liked the holiday box, just because there were so many yummy goodies to try. Have a look.

What the box contained:

1) Bag of 479 Sea Salt Caramel

2) Nunes Farms Honey Cinnamon Almonds

3) Nikkis Gingerbread Boy Cookie

4) 4 Taffy Town’s Salt Water Taffy Candy- this is pretty amazing stuff!

5) Big Chocolate Dipper’s Belgin Milk Chocolate Dipped Nutter Butter Cookie (whew that was a mouthful).

6) Kara Chocolates’s Candy Cane Milk Chocolate Truffles- I have to say I loved these, they melt right in your mouth. I would end up comparing the quality of the chocolates to Lindt.

7) Madecasse Chocolate’s 2 mini chocolates

8) Hill’s Brothers Mocha Mint Cappuccino Mix

9) Inserts for Ecomom ($10 credit for first time users), Craft Coffee’s 10% off (code LOVEFOOD), Cloud Mom, and Virgin Wines

I am pretty impressed by this box, it had the box completely filled with great samples. I was considering canceling my subscription after next month to cut down on costs, but now I’m re-considering. This month Love with Food also donated 2 meals for every box to NY & NJ Food Banks for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Moms: I have two Ecomom credits available from Love with Food that I have no need for. The first two people to reply (subscribed users) can have them! 

What do you think of this box? Have any subscription boxes that you love?

Love with Food – Box Opening & Giveaway

‘ello everyone,

I’m a little proud of myself for posting something before 12 a.m. but I was super excited to show my first box of Love with Food & my do my first giveaway.

About Love with Food: Yes yet another subscription box. This tag line description is a way to “discover great food for a great cause”.

The box is $10 a month plus $2 for shipping ($12 total) for 8+ tasty bites. The best part? They donate a meal for every box that is bought. So every month, my subscription box gives me a yummy food surprise & a meal for someone else. This month due to Hurricane Sandy, Love with Food will be donating 2 meals per box delivered.

Thats not all! Every subscription earns you points (counting on the plan), every review earns you 5 points, and there are many other ways to earn points. You get free shipping for a annual plan & $1 shipping for a 6 month plan. This is my first box and I have yet to review any of the products and I already have 600 points. You can than use those points to buy products from their website of the item you sampled. How cool is that?!
