One of the best parts of this subscription is that it is charitable. For every box that is purchased (including subscriptions), Love with food donates a meal to a population that is needy.
—The October theme was Monster Mash and for our family the timing on this box could not have been more appropriate. As I was rushing A to the emergency room yesterday, our postman handed me this box. We actually took it with us because we missed dinner to head out. Most of this box was gone by the time we arrived back home. We pay for this box each month and I think very highly of Love with Food. They have great customer support and a wonderful purpose.
The harvest moon is bright, the fall air is crisp, and jack-o-laterns are lit – so we’ve selected monster worthy snacks that will have you doing the Mash… the Monster Mash in no time! That’s not all you should be dancing over, you just donated one meal to feed a hungry child in the USA … AAaaaUUUUuuuu!
Item One: Jelly Beans by Surf Sweets
- We ate these on the way home and B was in love. They taste great and I will definitely purchase these in the future. I have never seen a company that claims they are free of the top 10 allergens.

• Free of the 10 Most Common Allergens
• Made in a Nut-Free Facility
• Dairy Free/Casein Free

Item Two: Original Cheese Straws by J&M Foods
- My husband was not a fan but I really liked these straws and think they would go wonderfully with a bowl of soup. Love with Food also included a coupon for J&M foods.
Items Three and Four: Honey Almond Butter and Chocolate Almond Butter by Justin’s
- Justin’s Butters are already a family favorite. I could eat the Chocolate Almond Butter plain and we make PBJ with the Honey Almond Butter.
Item Five: Buttery Shortbread Squares by Clairesquares
- I had to break this shortbread square up in to four pieces. Everyone loved it! I only wish I had coffee when I ate it as I think it would pair well.
Item Six: Organic Falafel Chips by Flamous
- Original Falafel Chips seem to be a nice alternative to regular chips. I ate these with my daughter in the hospital parking lot and I wished the whole time I had a nice salsa or dip to go with them.
Item Seven: Cinnamon and Sugar Bananinha Banana Bar by Nutryvitta
- I gave this to the little ones after taking a small taste. The Nutryvitta Bananinha no sugar added is produced with selected fruits, with a strict quality control. In Brazil, this product is provided to public schools for school meals, it is also a great snack, especially popular with athletes. Despite being ill my 2-year-old did eat this product (he love bananas).
Item Eight: Harvest Snapea Crisps by Calbee
- We at these today with our PBJ sandwiches. I think Snapea Crisps are a nice alternative to less healthy choices such as chips. Surprisingly they were very good and my four-year-old gobbled them up. The company gives these highlights when choosing their snacks:
I am very happy with this month’s Love with Food box. As always I think the value is pretty on par with what you pay, but the reason I subscribe is because Love with Food is a great way to try healthy snacks and help a great cause. –J
