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!

Cravebox Resoultions — Ring it in the Healthy Way

It has finally arrived! The Resolutions box was priced at $15, my most expensive so far and boy was it worth it. I earlier blogged about being healthy this new year as one of resolutions and it seems like cravebox read my mind. You know me so well.

Inside the box:

resolutions

1) Mary Kay’s TimeWise Repiar Volu-Firm Eyecream- This is a full sized product valued at $40! I will start trying this tonight and have a review up after 1-2 weeks of use. This is for deep lines, wrinkes, sagging lids, under eye darkness, puffiness and so much. I am super excited to try this!

2) 2 cans of the new 10 calorie drinks-  7 up & A&W Root Beer — this honestly seemed a little weird having in the box. They probably could have saved cost in etting a coupon instead of shipping them. None the less I will end up using these or someone in my household will.

3) Cocoa Via – Daily supplement variety sample pack to health support healthy circulation. These seem intersting I’ve never tried or heard of them. There are 4 packets all in different favorings.

4) Zone Perfect’s Perfectly Simple Peanut Crunch Nutrition Bar

5) SunRype’s Fruit Source- 3 bars of all natural 100% fruit and veggie bar. Hmm Interesting.. I’m interested and scared to try them at the same time. I like that these are 2.5 serving of fruit per bar! I got 2 in mango strawberry & 1 in Strawberry.

6) SunRypes Just Fruits & Grains Strawberry Mango. This is 2 serving of fruit and no added sugars.

7) 1 sample of Celestial Seasonings Metabo Balance Wellness Tea– a Green Tea Supplement. I love this brand for my teas so this will be put to good use.

8)Pantene Silky Moisturize Whip in a sample size. I already got one of these in the teen box so not as excited.

9) Lastly, a Wholly Guacamole Chip Clip with a bunch of coupons. 1 free product of any Wholly Guacamole product, yes!  .75 off a box of Celestial Tea, $1.00 off a box of Perfectly Simple, 1 free Smart Ones Product (up to 4.00).

What do you guys think of the box? I was expecting a box of multi vitamins and nutrition bars. I like their idea of a full sized eye cream better! Check out Cravebox and their upcoming boxes.

I got my Winter Favorites Cravebox a little over a week ago but I’ve been wrapped up with festivities and shopping. Getting down to business the cost of the box is $14 and well over worth it!

1) Camball’s Golden Butternut Squash Bisque- This came with a recipe card. This retails for about $3.99

) Mary Kay’s Lip Gloss- I received the Red Pass 3 ion (Shimmer) lip gloss which is the perfect holiday color. This itself retails for $14! This is my first time trying a Mary Kay product and I have to say I am impressed with the product, it had good staying power and the color was as beautiful on as it seems in the bottle.

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.

Image

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?

Wakey Wakey- Coffee Lover’s Cravebox

I stalked my mailbox the day this was suppose to arrive, thats how excited I was.

The Coffee Lovers (<3) Cravebox was $12

Image

I was expecting different coffee samples so I was surprised when I received only one coffee bag. Still completely worth it!

These are full sized items, which is way better than receiving small sample sizes. I think its cute how they decided to make it a coffee gift bag of sorts, with the little things one takes with coffee. If I wasn’t greedy I could have used this as a gift that a number of my friends would have loved.

I received:

1 Bag of Tully’s French Roast Coffee 

1 Bottle (375 mL) of Sugar Free French Vanilla Torani’s Syrup – We are looking forward to opening this and using it around christmas time with our family. We loved the last bottle we had received with Cravebox which was salted caramel. They also included a $1 off coupon.

Barbara’s High Fiber Cranberry Medley Cereal– This was a single serving with cranberry (as the name suggests) and pomegranates. I already ate this and its pretty dang good, sweet and the right amount of crunch.

2 Biscotti’s from Bakery Brothers 1 in Almond & 1 Cranberry Blueberry Almond 

This box beside the coffee (we are still working on our first bag) has already been put into good use. So I personally really like this box. So here’s to dragging myself up in the morning and brewing a nice strong roast so that I am less likely to hurt someone in the early hours of the day. Cheers!
