AUGUST 2016 LOVE WITH FOOD

monthly snack subscription

Love with Food is a monthly snack subscription that puts together healthier snack alternatives. The snacks are usually organic, gluten-free, and free of preservatives. There are 3 box options with prices that correlate to the type of box you choose. I signed up for the tasting box, the most affordable option. For less than $10 a month, I receive about 8 snacks and sometimes more. For each box that is purchased, this company donates a meal to a food bank! I have been subscribed for a little over a year now and have been happy with this service and recommend them especially for households looking for healthier snack options!

overall:

I enjoy this subscription and love seeing this cute red box filled with treats each month! Not all of the snacks are a hit but the majority of it is yummy. I do love that this company uses percentage of their proceeds for a good cause, that is why I do not feel that I am wasting my money if I get a snack I do not enjoy. What did you think of this month’s box? Rate this box with your comment below!

    Thanks for the detailed unboxing! I was wondering what to expect from a typical box and this seems a like a cool way to sample treats before buying the full size :)

    I love the post and the review. This company give to a great cause which for me may take up for the fact that the snacks might take some getting used too! Supporting a worthy cause does out way flavorlessness, lol!
