Love With Food – September

on September 27, 2013

Yay!
This month our favorite box was curated by celebrity chef, Ming Tsai!
He chose foods that are gluten-free – we had no idea there are so many!
Not only that but Love With Food and Chef Tsai are working
together to help end childhood hunger in our country.

1 in  5 Children in the USA go hungry every day
For every box purchased a meal is given to a child in need!

September Theme: Hunger Action Month

Millies Savory Teas in ‘Indian Spice’ and ‘Spicy Tortilla’
Retail $13.95 for a tin of 15 – Sample Value $1.86

These smell wonderful!  Unfortunately, the flavor isn’t as strong.
We found them way too mild tasting.  We opened one and tried
rubbing it on chicken – thinking we might get more flavor – but it was a no go.

We think if they upped the flavor profile these would be great.

Dipin Pepper & Artichoke Bruschetta
Retail $17.88 for 12 – Sample Value $1.49

This rocks!  My hubby is not a fan of bruschetta and he gobble this down!
Has a wonderful roasted red pepper flavor that is VERY pronounced!
We plan on getting these for him for work – they are that good!

Wild Garden Hummus in ‘Roasted Garlic’
Retail $15.99 for 24 – Sample Value $.67

This is great humus!  Love the package – super easy to use.
We are thinking of getting a case of these – they will be great
for snacks and trips.  PS sorry for the canned photo – mine did not turn out.

Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars in ‘Blueberry’
Retail $16.09 for 12 – Sample Value $1.34

We are not fans of blueberries – so my hubby and I weren’t too
thrilled with this.  Our kid usually likes them – but he didn’t
care for this at all.  If you like blueberries you may dig it
otherwise, we will take a pass on this.

YumEarth Fruit Snacks in ‘Banana, Cherry, Peach & Strawberry’
Retail $4.49 for 5 – Sample Value $.90

Our kid usually hates gummy candy – which doesn’t break our hearts.
These he loved!  At all but the two we sampled – and couldn’t stand – go figure!
It’s great that they are organic and have vitamins – so we don’t
feel bad letting him eat these.  We may get them as treats.

Cosmos Creations in ‘Cinnamon Crunch’
Retail $2.49 for 2.5 oz bag – Sample Value $.70 for .7 oz bag

These are odd.  They technically taste good – but if feels like you are
eating a stale cinnamon roll.  It’s not a pleasurable snack.

Bare Fruit Apple Chips in ‘Cinnamon’
Retail $25.38 for 24 – Sample Value $1.06

They are dehydrated apples.  Nothing special really.  Taste good but we can
make them ourselves with local organic apples.

IMG_4892

Organicasaurus in ‘Cheddar Cheese’
Retail $24 for 16 – Sample Value $1.50

These are tasty and fun.  Our son loved them and they aren’t
super unhealthy.  Nice cheesy corny flavor!

Licious Organics Raw Cookie in ‘Cherry Berry’
Retail $1.30 – Full Sized Sample

This was hands down our least favorite thing in the box.
It was very gritty and the flavor was cloying.
The kid spit it out if that tells you anything :-/

Total Value for our September Love With Food box – $10.82

This was a nice assortment of snacks for work and for school lunches.
And, as always, we feel good about helping children get a meal!

On a side note – we purchased two subscriptions for friends as
gifts and they love them.  With the holidays coming up this
might be a great gift idea for some on your list that may be
hard to buy for.

that delivers 8+ gourmet food items to your door.
They offer a rewards system for reviews, referrals and purchases.
