July Love with Food box

Love with Food is a monthly food subscription box.  The price is $10 plus $2 for shipping a month or you can sign up for a 6 month plan and shipping is only $1 or a yearly plan and shipping is free which makes the boxes an even $10.  In addition to yummy treats for every box sold they donate a meal to a hungry child.  I've enjoyed all my boxes so I signed up for a yearly membership.   

Each month is a different theme and you will receive 5+ gourmet food items.   You don't get to pick you items so it's a complete surprise.  If you like what you get then you can log onto the Love with Food website and order the products at a special discount.  This months theme is United States of Summer.    

The good:

The price: $10-$12 is a reasonable price to pay for yummy treats AND you're donating a meal. 

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

Variety: You get a lot of variety in each box. 

Discounts: You can earn points for discounts off future full size product purchases by submitting reviews on their website. 

The not so good:

Skip a month: Skipping is not an option.  If you don't want a box you will have to cancel. 

This is my July Love with Food Box. (sorry it's a little blurry, the boyfriend was hovering over my shoulder telling me to hurry up and take the picture so he could eat the food)

Contents of box.  Full size price and size listed in parenthesis.

2 oz. jar of Chipotle Ketchup with Organic Agave Nectar by Montebello Kitchens. value = $0.89 (13.5 oz. $5.99) 

Full Size 1.5 oz bag of Organic Blue Corn "ForChia" chips by Whale Tails. value = $1.39 - very tasty

3 Yummy Earth Lollipops. value = $0.20/ea (40 for $7.99)

Full Size .42 oz. bag of Sweet Corn Crunch-Dried snack by Sensible Foods. value = $1.66 - I love, love, love these!  It reminds me of sweet corn only I'm sure this is much better for you.  

2.5 oz jar of Milk Chocolate Hot Fudge Dessert Topping by Sanders Candy. value = $1.07 (10 oz $4.29) 

1 tea bag makes 32 oz pitcher of Sweet Orange & Citrus Sunburst Green Iced Tea by Mighty Leaf Tea. value = $4.66 - I've tried this before and really enjoyed it.  I've never tried this flavor but I like green tea so I'm sure it will be tasty.  I like the big giant tea bag that makes a large pitcher!

1 tea bag for one cup of organic Spring Jasmine tea by Mighty Leaf Tea. value $0.66

6 pieces of patriotic popper candies sweetened with organic cane juice and brown rice syrup. flavors are cherry, white pina colada and blue mint.  value = guessing about $0.10/ea

The overall value of this months box is $11.53.  This is a great value no matter which level you subscribe at.  I bought some Kobe Beef hot dogs the other day (I couldn't resist) so maybe I will give the chipotle ketchup a try with them.  I'm definitely interested in buying some more sweet corn crunch!    

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Love with Food.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
