October Love with Food

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 Jump Start the School Year.        

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 or referring new members. 

The not so good:

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

Contents of box with full size retail price listed in parenthesis:

7 pack Numi Organic Pu-erh Tea sampler. Value = $3.99

3 Nature's Kick Blackberry Blossom Honey Straws. Value = $0.09 (1000 $87.00) - Sometimes when I want a little something sweet I cut one of these open.  I figure it's better than a candy bar. 

1 Cranberry Orange Cookie from Natasha's Health Nut Cookie. Value = $1.24 (6 pk. $7.45)

.75 oz. bag Mountain Mambo Mix from Enjoy Life Foods. Value = $0.56 (6 oz. $4.19)

1 oz. bag All-Natural Cheddar Cheese Baked Fries from Snikiddy. Value = $0.83 (6 bags $4.99) - These are soooo good.  I hope they sell these on the Love with Food site soon.

3.2 oz. Applesauce from Go-Go Squeez. Value = $0.71 (4 pk. $2.83) - I've had these before and they are really fun to eat.  The top is like a straw and it's a nice little fun midday snack.

1.2 oz. bar Acai Strawberry Sesame Strips from Mrs. May's Naturals. Value = $1.00

The total value of this months box is $8.42.  This is on the low side for this particular company.  The usually are more near the $10 mark.  I'm a yearly subscriber so my cost is $10 so the price difference and the fact that they donate a meal makes the value fine by me.  All the goodies in this months box look delicious!
Verdict: overall I love my Love with Food boxes so it's a keeper    

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