February Love With Food Box- Happy Valentines Day

Love with Food is a monthly subscription box for food.  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.   

Love with Food has provided a code for $2.00 for my readers.  Use code TREASUREVIP

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 Happy Valentine's Day     

Also this month I received an email saying they are celebrating of their one year anniversary and first Valentine's Day and as a thank you they are sending me a free one year subscription to Everyday with Rachael Ray.  How cool is that.  The only thing is I already have subscription that doesn't end until later this year so I'm hoping they can just add the year onto my existing subscription.  

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. 

All my Love with Food treasures. 

Contents of box with estimated retail price listed:

Hagensborg Chocolate Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle Piglet. Value = $1.00

Hagensborg Chocolate Milk Chocolate Caramel Truffle Piglet. Value = $1.00

.75 oz. package Funny Face Naturally Flavored Cranberries. Value = $0.60 - These are really sweet and delicious. 

1 oz. bag Bobby Sue's nuts. Value = $1.50

1 Millie's Savory Teas Tomato Basil Sipping Broth. Value = $0.86 - This was really not very good.  It was super salty and was like drinking salty watered down tomato broth.  I took one drink and tossed the rest. 

(2) .1 oz. Nektar Naturals Nektar Honey Crystals. Value = $0.20/ea.

Donsuemor Chocolate Madeleine. Value = $0.57 - Soooo good! Like a nice flurry chocolate cake in Madeleine form. 

.45 oz. Jer's Squares chocolate with peanut butter. Value = $1.00

The total estimated value of this months box is $6.93.  The value is a little low side but but there are some pretty cool specialty products in here.  I have a yearly subscription so the difference is only $3.00 which is acceptable considering the meal donation and the items that were sent.  I've had the piglets before and they are super yummy.  I've also received the nuts in another box at some point and enjoyed those as well.  I didn't like the tea broth at all but I'm glad I got to try it this way instead of buying a whole box.   

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. 


  1. Hey, I just started my own blog, want to check it out pretty please. I feel bad about this advertising ugh, But I sincerely want to know what you think about it. Thanks!

    1. Don't feel bad at all! I've never heard of Peckish box - it's amazing how many subscriptions are out there! I subscribed to your blog. Looking forward to reading your reviews. I think blogging is fun and it's a way to justify my subscription box addiction.
