July Love with Food Box

Love with Food is a monthly subscription box filled with 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 off 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 Fun on the Boardwalk. Also this month they donated not one but TWO meals to food banks in Oklahoma.

Contents of box with estimated value/retail price listed:

Kukuruza Hawaiian Sea Salted Caramel Popcorn. Value = $2.50??? - Good popcorn.

.5 oz. Vermont Smoke and Cure BBQ Beef Stick. Value = $0.78 - The boyfriend ate this. He said they were a little greasy but good. 

1 oz. Lord Nut Levington Rebel Mary Peanuts. Value = $1.17 - A nice amount of spicy on these. The boyfriend didn't realize they had spice and took a big handfuls. Ha Ha

(2) Angel Mint Orange Salt Water Taffy. Value = $0.25/ea. - These were good, nothing spectacular but tasted like orange.

(4) Twangerz Snack Topping. Value = $0.25

Uncle Henry's Handmade Sourdough Pretzel. Value = $2.36 - This was ok for a nice crunchy snack.

Nature's Bakery Strawberry Fig Bar. Value = $1.75

NECCO Candy Classic Wafers Value = $0.22

The total approximate value of this box is $9.53 give or take a little for the popcorn. I thought this was a nice summer themed box. I haven't figured out how I'm going to use the salt topping yet. I'm not a added salt person but I hear they are delicious. I love the Nature's Bakery bars and this new strawberry flavor sounds good. I haven't seen NECCO wafers in ages. I actually don't care much for them but they boyfriend seemed to like them. Other people received hello fresh gift cards in their boxes. I didn't get one but that service is not available in my area. It seems like it would be a lot of work the separate out the boxes my region.

Verdict:  The Love with Food boxes are about even in value but they send some fun products.
