This is my first (and last) box from Love With Food. Why is this my last box, you ask? Well, it’s not that I didn’t enjoy this box, but because I prefer not to spend my money on food subscriptions. I got this box for only $2 with a promo code (and you can too with the promo code YUMMY), so I felt like it was too good of a deal to pass up!

While I enjoy trying new foods (and I will basically try anything at least once), I know that I will throw away anything right away if it’s not something I enjoy. Thus, I worry about wasting the food that are sent to me, which is why I limit food subscriptions unless there’s a really great code available!

Honey Waffle by Meli – This was delicious! I thought it would be crunchy, but with the honey sandwiched between the two waffles, it turned out to be softer and very indulgent. If you like Biscoff, you’ll love this. The honey really added a nice earthy depth to the waffles themselves.

Organic Energy Bar by Bumblebar – I haven’t tried this yet, so I can’t say if it’s good or bad. But I love almonds and so I’m hoping this is tasty! The info card says that it is made with nuts, sesame, flax, vanilla, and cinnamon. It’s also gluten free!

Heart-tee by Wild Hibiscus Flower Co. – Have yet to try this as well but it’s a 100% pure hibiscus herbal tea, which means it is caffeine free! YAY! I love caffeine free teas because that means I can drink them any time during the day and not worry about not being able to fall asleep at night. I don’t normally enjoy floral teas but I do like hibiscus-flavored drinks, so I think I’ll enjoy this.

Almonds with Cranberries, Honey, and Sea Salt by Sahale Snacks – Haven’t tried this either, but bring on the almonds! Not so sure about the cranberries but I think this could work. It’s a small packet that’s great to bring on the go if you need a little protein boost during the middle of the day.

Fiordifrutta Organic Fruit Spread by Rigoni Di Asiago – This one was a bit misleading because the outside says “strawberries” but the sample I received is actually apricot! Personally I would have preferred strawberry jam because it’s my favorite, but my mom’s favorite is apricot so I’m giving it to her instead! I actually make apricot jam for my mom during apricot season because she just really loves it (and because it’s so easy to make!), haha. Me? Not so much.

Creamed Honey with Chocolate Mint by Vintage Bee – I love chocolate mint-flavored sweets! (Andes mints are the best). This actually reminds me of those flavored honey sticks you can get at the farmer’s market or at one of those specialty grocery stores. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m saving this for dessert!

Orchard Blend by Sensible Foods – THIS WAS SO GOOD. I thought I wouldn’t like it because I do prefer fresh fruit, but I inhaled this entire bag just before writing this post. The intensity of flavor in crunch dried fruits is intense and I love it. The peaches were the best part, the apples were like apple chips, and the apricots got a little lost in between. I think I’m going to have to go and buy this because I seriously love it.

Popcorn by Crave Canyon – I got the Hatch as Met Its Match flavor, which is aged white cheddar and hatch green chile. I love, love, love savory popcorn, so I was really happy to see this in the box. But unfortunately, the green chile is kind of off for me. It’s not very spicy, but it’s a heat that builds and then goes from your mouth to your nose. I can certainly appreciate the kick it brings, but it’s not for me.

The entire April box! 😀

Overall value: I didn’t do a value break down for this box because I was too lazy to go find each individual product. :p However, I will say that I definitely got my money’s worth!

Overall enjoyment: Out of the products I’ve already sampled, I really loved the honey waffle and the orchard blend crunch dried fruits. But I don’t see myself spending $12 a month on this box. I’d rather get another Birchbox (for the Birchbox points!) or venture into Ipsy (just to try them out) with the same money. But this is by no means a bad box! I think they really do send great products for you to try and if you’re looking to expand your snack repertoire, this is a great box to sign up for.
