At first glance I was really impressed with this month’s box. It is jammed pack with goodies from brands I know and many I’ve never heard of. I was pleasantly surprised to see a bag full of candy even though I am not a big fan of hard candy it is the perfect package to hand out in groups or a gathering. The theme this month is Road Trip and it fits perfectly with my travel needs for next week. I will most likely be taking all of the snacks with me on my trip.
August 2015 Getaway Tasting box
Theme: Road Trip
Total Snack items: 8
All of the snack items are perfect for travel and I will really appreciate them as I wait to board the plane. I can have the Kind bar for a boost of energy, share the popcorn with my husband as we enjoy a movie on the flight. Eat the Rosemary crackers with the Fig and Walnut Pie as we wait for our bus. The Sesame Cranberry Peanut Butter is perfect for my daughter who can only consume puree foods this will ensure she gets a boost of natural energy after a long flight. We can add the herbal tea powder to our water and enjoy the Garlic Onion snack while we lounge at the pool.
Below I list the snacks in the order listed on my information brochure. I also include website links to the snack companies if you want to check them out. Usually they have more flavors on their website so be sure to check them out if any of these sound yummy to you. This is my overview for August 2015 Love with Food Getaway Tasting Box.
I hope this review is helpful in your search for snacks!
|1. Asiago, Parmesan + Cheddar Popcorn||479º|
|This company has the perfect popping temperature for popcorn at 479º hence their company name. It makes me wonder if they have the perfect tasting popcorn.This sample weights about .05 oz and is a good sized snack for 2 people to share. The flavor of this popcorn sounds scrumptious, three cheeses on Non-Gmo popcorn that is made without rBST and antibiotic-free dairy products. It is gluten-free, has no trans fat, no artificial anything, and made from whole grain. The full size for this flavor is 4 oz and cost about $4.00. I’m sure they have other awesome flavors too, hold that thought–I just checked out their website and boy do they have interesting artisan flavors! Some of the other flavors include: White Cheddar + Black Truffle, Toasted Coconut Caramel, Farmers Market Herbs, and some limited edition such as Pumpkin Pecan Praline. I can’t wait to try these!|
|2. Apple Hard Candy||Goorganic|
|I am not a hard candy fan but boy was I surprised to see a whole pack of them. It’s better than getting 1 or 2 like they usually do in previous boxes. Love with Food has sent other flavors from this company and I noticed this company recently created a website. This is awesome for candy lovers this product is certified USDA Organic, gluten free, preservative free, trans fat, cholesterol, high fructose corn syrup, just amazing stuff for a hard candy. This apple flavored one taste a lot like green apples too.|
|3. Sesame Cranberry Peanut Butter||Wild Friends|
|Another interesting product with an interesting flavor and they have tons more other flavors on their site. Some of these flavors include: Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter, Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter, Honey Pretzel Peanut Butter, and Maple Sunflower Butter, Organic Chocolate Sunflower Butter, and much more. This one is vegan, dairy free, 0 trans fat and no preservatives. These flavors bring a whole new level to breakfast toast. I will be giving this to my daughter as a snack since she will be traveling with me in a foreign country and she can only eat puree foods.|
|4. Roasted Broad Beans||Enlightened|
|Garlic and onion known for giving you stinky breath but so good in any savory dish. I am not sure how this snack will taste, it can either be too salty or completely addicting. This snack is gluten and soy free and contains only 5 ingredients. On their website this company is known for their crips and ice cream. I will definitely try this out but not as a late night snack.|
|5. Popped Salted Carmel||Kind Bar|
|This is a company I’ve heard of before and often purchase their granola bars. They sell these in bulk at Costco and the ones I’ve gotten were the Dark Chocolate Chunk bars. I like their clear packaging and you can see what the product looks like. I’ve never tried this flavor but it sounds yummy. It is gluten free, Non-Gmo, and they have ingredients you can pronounce. This company is awesome because every month they donate $10,000 to an important cause or organization, check out their website for more information.|
|6. Rosemary Croccantini||La Panzanella|
|These are Italian styled crackers, I haven’t open them but I can feel through the wrapping they are long and thin. I think there is about four pieces in there, they feel light and airy as well.|
|7. Lemon Rooibos Iced Herbal Tea||Stash|
|This is a nice travel size item and perfect for on the go since it requires no brewing. I will pour this into my bottle of water and drink this on my trip.|
|8. Fig and Walnut||Fruity Pie|
|This brand doesn’t have a website but I seen some of these sell on Amazon. This one in particular is the fig and walnut flavor. It is gluten-free, has no added sugar, and no colorings. It only has 2 ingredients and looks like a fun snack and healthy for you too.|
