May Love with Food Box

Love with Food is a monthly subscription box for food.  Each month is a different theme and you will receive 5+ gourmet food items. 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.

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

This subscription is only available in the US and ships from Santa Clara, California. 

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. 

                  
This months box theme is Happy Mother's Day

Contents of box with estimated value/retail price listed:

The Cookie Department Inc. Great Full Cookie. Value = $3.00 - This was kind of dry but tasted good. I liked the brown sugar and molasses flavor a lot.   

1 oz. Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves. Value = $0.38 - I've received this in previous boxes and it's good. I like the fig preserves best but they usually only send strawberry

1 pkg. Coffee Borsa Hand Drip Coffee. Value = $1.12 - terrible! I opened it gently to pour the water in and the whole packet opened and coffee grinds went every where.

(2) .10 oz. pkt. Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning. Value = $0.04/ea.

.46 oz. Snapz Crisps Tomato Crunch. Value = $1.49

1 Biscotti Bari Almond Biscotti. Value = $2.00?? - yuummmy

2 oz. Mrs. Mays Strawberry Pineapple Crunch. Value = $1.36

(2) Bali's Best Latte Candy. Value = $0.78

Cook coupon for 40% off your first order of soups. - I checked out the website and the soups look pretty good, except it's summer and hot here in California. I might order them anyway though.

Club W coupon for a free bottle of wine when you sign up.

The total estimated value of this months box is $10.21. On the card that came inside the box it said you could whip up a delicious meal in no time. I don't know about a meal but it has some pretty good stuff in it. I actually bought a jar of the slap ya mama seasoning when I was in New Orleans. I think I will just pour these packets in my jar. I bought a bunch of spices in New Orleans and actually haven't tried this one yet. I'm curious about the hand drip coffee.  Is it really better than my Keurig? We will see.

Verdict: Overall I love my Love with Food boxes so it's a keeper.

  1. I really liked the coffee, it was really smooth. I accidentily signed up twice for this subscription box, so I have one more month where I get two boxes. So I received two flavors of Mrs. Mary's. The coconut almond flavor and the pumpkin crunch. I thought I would like the coconut one better, but the pumpkin one was awesome. I can't really say it tasted like pumpkin, but it was tasty. They were both good, I just really liked the pumpkin one better. How was the strawberry pinapple? That sounds even better.

    1. I think my coffee bag may have been defective or already torn because it just fell open. The coconut almond Mrs. Mays sounds delicious! The strawberry pineapple one was ok but I didn't taste much pineapple.

  2. The snaps weren't very tasty. I thought the coffee was a little watery black, but I am super picky with coffee.

    1. I tried the snapz last night and I agree I didn't think they were good at all. I would much rather have a tomato on my salad or something.
