As many of you know, I love to have new experiences and try new foods. So I was super excited when, a few days ago, I received a cute little red box in the mail from Love with Food. Love with Food is a monthly subscription-based service that delivers a curated box of gourmet food items right to your door. This service gives you the opportunity to try samples of eight or more new and interesting high-quality products each month. The contents of each box is a surprise and varies based on seasonal themes. If the box contains something that you must have more of, Love with Food offers the full-sized items for sale in their online store.
Apart from sharing yummy goodies with its subscribers, Love with Food also donates a meal to a food bank for each box or product they sell.
I received August's box which had a "Travelin' Treats" theme. It contained the following items:
Key Lime with Ginger Mustard by East Shore
Skinny Dipping Pretzels by East Shore
Coconut Toffee Peanuts by Sconza Candies
Tangerine Glee Gum
Dried Montmorency Cherries
Gin Gins Super Strength Ginger Caramel Candy by The Ginger People
Vegan Lemony Lemon Cookie by the Sun Flour Baking Company
Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie by the Sun Flour Baking Company
I must say that I have enjoyed the pretzels and cookies. Even though I am not a vegan, I found these cookies to be tasty and not chalky at all. I'm not that big of a fan of ginger so I didn't enjoy the mustard or other ginger items much, but that is my own personal taste. I am guessing the heavy representation of ginger was due to the "Travelin' Treats" theme. My mother always made us eat ginger candy on car rides so that we wouldn't get car sick. All in all, I love Love with Food's concept of delivering goodies to your door, giving gourmet brands the opportunity to reach new audiences, and giving foodies the opportunity to eat more food.
