Love With Food Review

Have you ever tried Love With Food? I tried it out by signing up when they had a super good coupon. According to their website, they provide "organic, all-natural snacks" each month. They have a couple of sizes, and I chose the larger size box, which usually goes for $19.95 a month, with a small discount if you purchase multiple months.

It might sound ridiculous, but I really liked that the box was bright red and cute. Part of the fun of subscription services is getting a kind of present in the mail.

The box had a really good variety of snacks, and plenty of snacks in it. If you compare the prices of these to retail value, I am sure you would get your money's worth. Organic and natural snacks are pretty expensive, and the box came with several each of both sweet and savory snacks.

There's also a card that explains all the snacks:

You can go on the Love with Food website and do reviews of the snacks as well. You get points for the reviews that you can use to buy full-size items on their site.

So I was pretty excited to receive this box, and while I do think it is a good value, unfortunately none of the snacks were anything I was particularly excited to discover. A couple of the snacks were just weird or gross, like some food bars and a "breakfast cookie" that had coffee beans crushed up in it. It really tasted like eating a baked good that had fallen into some coffee grounds, and not in a good way. 

Most of the snacks were just fine, but average tasting, like some gluten-free cookies and some mini-packs of almonds. Maybe if you need to be gluten-free, you would be excited to try average-tasting cookies if you had a hard time finding cookies at all, but they tasted pretty much like any cookie you find in a vending machine. There was only one standout product to me: Jer's Squares chocolate squares. They were super yummy and had a kind of unique blend of textures.

I have a limited budget for subscriptions, and I live in Seattle where there is no lack of natural or organic foods on every street corner. So in the end, I decided to cancel my subscription to Love With Food because I didn't think it was interesting or unique enough to subscribe to for me personally. I wouldn't say NOT to get it. I do think the dollar value is there, and it might be a bit more interesting to someone who is passionate about discovering new organic and natural brands. It's just not particularly for me.
