April Love with Food box

Yay April is here!  I've been having un-boxing withdrawals for the last couple weeks.  I am having fun with all the trading Little Black Bag and can't wait to show you my treasures this month.  For more on LBB click here or here.
Yesterday I received my Love with Food box.  For those of you new here Love with Food is a really cool monthly food/snack subscription.  The best thing about this program is for each box purchased they donate a meal to Share our Strength no Kid Hungry.  For $14 (shipping included) a month you will receive a box of 5+ unique gourmet hard to find items.  If your taste buds like what you taste them you can access the members only area and buy the item at Love with Food at a special discount.  Last month I received these amazing fig bars from Nature's Bakery and promptly ordered more to keep in my little snack bowl.  Each month is a different theme.  For instance February was sweet treats, March was hikers essentials and this month is Bunny Hop into Spring.  I am very excited about my treats this month and can't wait to try everything in the box!


The good: 


The price: $14 a month, you gets lots of treats AND you are donating a meal.  Can't beat that!

Need a gift. You can send a 3 or 6 month gift subscription to a friend.  Who doesn't love getting tasty treats in the mail.

Variety. There is lots of variety in the products and if you are food adventurous you'll like this.

Discounts.  You earn points that you can use towards the purchase of full size products.

The not so good:

Skip a month.  There is no option to skip a month.  If you don't want a box then you have to cancel your membership.

Picky eater?  You don't get to pick your items.  I actually don't see this as a problem but picky eaters may.

Here is my April Love with Food box


 I received a priority mail envelope and inside was this pretty red box with my tasty treats.


This is the inside of my box.  Lots of yummy treats to try.  



1oz bag of Annie's Bunny Grahams
4 Ferrero Chocolate eggs
4 packets of Impra Masala Green Tea
2 Mom's originals chocolate dipped pretzels (dark chocolate and milk chocolate)
2oz bottle of Oliovera Meyer lemon olive oil
2 oz bottle of Oliovera Raspberry Basil vinegar
The TeaRoom Chocolate Company Chocolate Sampler pack containing 4 samples (Pina Colada, Masala Chocolate, Midnight Mocha and Mayan Pepper Chai)


Verdict.  I'm going to keep this subscription.  The samples will be great to keep at work, in my snack bowl at home or in my purse for when I'm running errands all day.  $14 a month is a great deal AND you donate to a fantastic cause.

**I pay for these boxes myself and am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Love with Food
