February Love with Food - A Kiss to Build a Dream On Deluxe Box

Love with Food is a monthly subscription box filled with food. They now offer a deluxe size version of the box which contains 16-20 new snack foods. The price of this deluxe version is $19.95 a month with shipping included. You can also sign up for a 6 or 12 month plan each which will save you a couple of dollars a month. Also for each deluxe box purchased 2 meals are donated to hungry children in America. I decided to cancel my regular snack size box and subscribe to just this larger size box.

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

The good:

Bigger is better? I know some people don't like that the regular box is so small but it also comes with a small price tag. This deluxe box would be better suited for those with more than 2 people in their house. No more fighting over the tasty snacks!

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:

Value: The first box they sent had a really low value but the boxes that followed have been great. 

A Kiss to Build a Dream On!

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

.7 oz. bag Mario Camacho Snack olives in Savory Pepper. Value = $1.33

.7 oz. bag Mario Camacho Snack olives in Hint of Garlic. Value = $1.26

(3) Gavottes Dark Chocolate Crepe Dentelles. Value $0.30/ea. - So flakey and delicious! 

(2) 1.5 oz. bags of Beanitos Restaurant Style White Bean Chips. Value = $0.98/ea.

(2) 1 oz. Emily's Chocolates Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries. Value = $1.10/ea. - I was surprised that these were more tart than sweet. Still tasty though. 

(2) 1 oz. Back to Nature Honey Graham Sticks. Value = $0.75/ea.

snack size TCHO Pure Note Dark Chocolatey. Value = $0.73 - finally! dark chocolate!

(2) snack size TCHO Mokaccino milk chocolate. Value = $0.73/ea.

(2) .6 oz. Biscotti Di Suzy Chocolate Chip Biscotti. Value = ??

.5 oz. Black Truffle + White Cheddar Popcorn by 479 Degree Popcorn. Value = $1.59 - Love, love, love this popcorn and it's only 100 calories for the bag. 

2 pk. Guylian Chocolate Truffles. Value = $1.09

Coupon for a Free Build Your Own Meal Kit from Revolution Foods. Value = $4.99

Love with Food Chip Clip. Value = $2.00

The total approximate value of this box is $21.0 plus maybe a dollar for the biscotti. I didn't think they were going to make the $20 mark until I saw the coupon. I hope it's something I can find in the stores I shop at. I'm also excited that I actually like all the stuff in this months box (except the olives but the boyfriend likes those). I was super excited about the popcorn because it's one of my favorite flavors from 479. I love having biscotti with my coffee and these are just the right size. I've had the TCHO chocolate before and I've even driven by their store in San Francisco but have never gone inside. I hear they give free samples there, I might have to check it out. I actually sort of hid this box for a couple of days so the before wouldn't devour it while I was at work. I had to make him promise that if he opened the popcorn to save me some and now that I'm typing this I think I should have just taken it with me.

Verdict:  This Love with Food box had some great snacks in it. I'm still happy with the larger size box.
