Love With Food (July 2014)

Love With Food helps you discover new organic or all-natural snacks delivered to your door every month.  This subscription membership starts as low as $10 per month.  Each month you will receive a curated box of unique, hard-to-find tasty snacks which varies based on season themes.  For every box sold, they donate a meal to several food banks such as the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength - No Kid Hungry.

Each month your Love With Food box will include a card detailing all of the products that have been chosen.

Apple Pecan Bar by 2 Degrees (1.6oz) was tasty and very nutritious.  It was moist and sweet and had great texture.  This particular bar contains brown rice sugar and flour, sunflower seeds, figs, almond butter, pecans, apples, etc.  They're all natural, gluten free, vegan, kosher, low sodium, and GMO Free (whatever GMO is... I'll have to look it up).

A great thing about 2 Degrees is that for every bar you buy, they give a meal to a hungry child.  So not only are you getting a delicious snack, you're also helping feed the hungry.  

Sea Salt Lentil Crackers by Mediterranean Snacks (0.75oz) were... edible.  Baked with protein rich lentils and naturally gluten free, the flavor on the outside was tasty, but the crackers themselves were bland, and the after taste wasn't great.  Also included is a $0.50 off coupon, which I seriously doubt I'll be using.  A little disappointing because I do love lentils.

Golden Lentils South Asian Snacks by Zouq (1oz) immediately restored my faith in the versatile lentil.  These sautéed wonders had a lovely texture somewhere between tiny crackers and sunflower seeds that you eat by the handful.  I could not get enough! 

Butter Crisp Love Minis by ginnybakes (1.25oz) tasted great, especially for being organic and gluten-free.  You could really taste the crispy, buttery sweetness.

Kids' Organic Mixed Berry Chews by Honey Stinger (0.8oz) were some of the best chewable children's gummies I've had.  They were very juicy and flavorable.

Dutch Cocoa by Somersaults (0.5oz) were... strange.  I wouldn't say bad, but I wouldn't find myself buying them.  Made with sunflower seeds, toasted grains and cocoa, they're a little dry and plain, but full of protein.

Chocolate Chip Fluff by Madyson's Marshmallows (size unknown) were absolutely amazing, and I hate marshmallows!  Soft but not overly puffy like most, these were not sticky sweet and the chocolate chips were the perfect touch.  These are definitely on my must-have list for sweet tooth cravings.

White Cheddar Puffs by Beanitos (0.7oz) are delicious.  Reminiscent of Cheetos' Puffs, the texture is crispy but softens immediately in the mouth.  However, the white cheddar flavor is far superior to whatever kind of cheese is used in Cheetos.  Naturally gluten and cholesterol free, they also have no preservatives or MSG, are certified Kosher and contain 3 grams of fiber.  I can certainly see these being a filling work time snack.  Also included is a $1.00 off coupon for a full-sized bag of chips or two bags of puffs.
