September Love With Food Gluten Free Box

I have been hearing about Love With Food for awhile so I decided to try it out. Because of my limited diet choices I know a lot of these boxes I am not going to get to eat all the foods but I give them to someone in the house.

Love with food is a monthly food box where members receive hard to find tasty snacks. They deliver 8 or more organic, all natural snacks for as little as $10 a month. For every box they sell, they  donate a meal to several food banks such as the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength – No Kid Hungry. You can earn points by doing reviews on your box or inviting others to join. You can then use your points to shop for the snacks you love in their shop.

The first thing I tried from this box was the Betty Lou’s Gluten Free Blueberry Fruit bar. It was really good! I have always likes the fruit flavored  newton like cookies and this was really good.  I have actually gone and looked at the site thinking of buying more of these. Because I can’t eat eggs or dairy right now these felt like a nice little treat for me.

Carter and I shared the bag of Bare Fruit Crunchy Cinnamon Apple Chips.  If you know 3 year olds you know they can be picky, but Carter loves these and tried to eat the whole bag. They were like eating a real apple, not as much cinnamon as other dried apples I have eaten so more of the natural flavor. I really liked them and think I may get some of the smaller bags to put in the kids lunches and carry in the diaper bag. I think all of the kids would actually really like these.

Because me and the little boys can eat dairy I let the 3 older kids split the bag of Good Boy Organics Organicasaurus Cheddar Cheese Puffs. They said they were good, Not as cheesy as cheese puffs though. I don’t normally buy cheese puffs so these would be a nice alternative but because the older 3 are older and not really into the dinosaur shape, I doubt we will get these again. I do like that they are organic and non-GMO but sadly, the cheese does it in for us.

This next one is something I really want to try. I really like bruschetta but have not ever eaten artichokes so I am not sure how it will taste but its Natural Roasted Pepper and artichoke bruschetta dip. I think it should be really good with a French bread but it is only a small container so not something I could do for everyone! I think it would be good on some crackers too but my kids ate all the triscuits.

Wild Garden Roasted Garlic Hummis Dip. I will  admit I have never eaten hummis and am a little nervous to try it, I don’t even know what you put hummis on? But I will give it a shot and see. Maybe some crackers? Oh yeah, the kids ate those.

I really wanted to try this. But it contains coconut and the last time I had some coconut Mason was miserable, so another thing I can’t eat. Its a Licious Organics Cherry Berry organic unbaked oat cookie. They are nut,  gluten, soy, dairy and wheat free. It was egg free also(Mason has issues with the eggs I eat) but the coconut makes it not an option for me. I will probably let one of the little boys eat it.

Now these next ones are definitely something I am not so sure on. They are sipping broths from Millies Savory Teas. I think they are meant to be more of a broth drink rather than an actual tea because of the flavors(and the website says so). If you need to be on a liquid diet for some reason these would be a nice alternative. I am really not one to make broth and just eat it but maybe I will find  a use with a dinner recipe.

I sent the YummyEarth Organics fruit snack with Riley to school and forgot to ask him what he thought of them. But since he didn’t complain I have to think he liked them 🙂 I was looking at their site and they have a 50 pack you can get for about $35, they are a little more expensive than the ones I typically get. I do buy the better quality ones not the cheap ones full of crazy ingredients I can’t pronouce so I might think of getting these. I love the idea of the bulk package! These fruit snacks are made with real fruit extracts and no gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, or artificial colors and dyes.

The last thing in my box is something I really would like to try so I am saving it 😉

Its from Cosmo Creations, Cinnamon Crunch. The package says it is heavenly morsels of bakes corn with all natural ingredients you can pronounce. One the girls on my box group said this was really good.  I might try this soon as we are going to attempt to add dairy back in my diet to see if Mason is having an issue.

This was my very first Love with Food box and I was really happy with it.  I think the choices I got were great, even if I couldn’t eat them all, someone in the house will. If you would like to try Love with Food click here.  Right now I am only on the monthly plan which is $12 a month plus $2 shipping. They also offer a deluxe box which has 16-20 snacks, free shipping and is $19.95 a month. I saw a review for the deluxe box and it has multiples of some of the items I received and other things I didn’t. I think for the extra $5 its probably worth it to upgrade since you get free shipping.
