August 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 Backyard BBQ.

Contents of box with estimated value/retail price listed:

Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust barbecue seasoning. Value = $2.00

.8 oz. Good Boy organics Bops Sea Salt potato chips. Value = $1.50 - These are baked, not friend and you can tell when you eat them plain. If you dip them then they are great. 

1.5 oz. Aunt Sally's Creamy Pralines. Value = $2.33 - I went to this store in the French Market in New Orleans. They are very sweet. This is creamy version and I prefer the ones with a little more nuts in it. 

Project 7 tube of fresh mints. Value = $1.00

single serve container El Pinto Medium Salsa. Value = $1.00

.75 oz. Sahale Cranberry, Sesame Seeds + Honey Snacks. Value = $1.00

Rip van Wafels Caramel Filled Amsterdam Wafel. Value = $1.25 - I love these things. Put it over a hot cup of coffee to soften it and it's delicious!

.75 oz. Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps Lightly Salted Green Pea Crisps Value = $0.79

The total approximate value of this box is $10.87. The theme of this box is backyard bbq but I'm not sure all the products match the theme. The pralines, Sahale snacks, Wafels and mints aren't something I would see at a barbecue. With that being said I still thought this was a great box. I know we will enjoy all the products in here. The mints are from Project 7 and what I think is cool about their company is they plant a fruit tree for each tube purchased. I wonder where my tree is?

Verdict:  The Love with Food boxes are about even in value but they send some fun products so I think it's a great box.

  1. I'm so upset, the salsa leaked all over and I opened up the box only to find everything covered in mold! Gross! I've contacted customer service but no one has responded yet :( I love this box, but they're customer service leaves much to be desired.

  2. I can't believe it has mold, that's awful! Did you ever hear back from them?

  3. The salsa + mold issue happened to me as well and they offered to send me a new box and refund my purchase price (the $2 promo code box) after I sent them a message with pictures attached about it. Great company!
