Love with Food Feb 2013

I first heard of this subscription box through my friend over at Mrs. Fisher's Fancy Free finds. I got my first box for only $2. They are normally $12/ month. For that price you receive 8+ NEW gourmet foods delivered right to your door. You can find out all about them on the Love With Food Website.
Oh, did I forget to mention each box you get donates a meal to a child in need. Always a plus!
At first glance, I almost hugged my mailman! Getting a pretty red box with LOVE written on it just makes anyone smile. The theme for this month of love is
Spicy and Sweet Valentine's Day
My first Valentine's Day Card..... The product list. I don't like reading these until after I have been surprised by all the contents. I love surprises almost as much as I love chocolate. I think that is why I noticed this little piggy as soon as I opened the box!
Hagensborg Truffle Pig
Almost too cute to eat!!!! Almost!!!!
 I got 2 of these one in peanut butter and one in caramel. YUM
The kids hovering over my shoulder noticed these little cuties.
Strawberry flavored cranberries from Funny Face.
These were very yummy. I thought it was a little odd eating a cranberry that tasted like strawberries but I understood since cranberries are so tart the strawberries gave them a nice sweet taste. Naturally flavored makes them a fun and healthy treat!
Gluten free and 1/3 less fat than other tortilla chips.
I liked these spicy chips. They tasted like exactly what they say....
beans and rice with some pico de gallo. They were not like corn tortilla chips in the way that corn chips are so very crunchy and thick. These were a little thinner so therefore a little more crumbly. (Only way I can describe it)
Who isn't nuts about nuts?!?!
I love Bobby Sue's Nuts!!! I scarfed these down so fastI couldn't even take the time to tell ya how they tasted. They were awesome!
Tomato Basil Sipping Broth
The card describes this as a "first -of-its-kind sipping broth is a blend of savory herbs and spices infused with loose leaf green tea". Sounds strange to me but also sounds wonderfully delicious! I am waiting for the perfect quiet moment here at the homestead to have a cup of this super cup 'o broth.
Nektar Naturals  Honey Crystals

I thinbk these little packets of honey crystals from Nektar Naturals is a great creation to sweeten up that perfect cup of hot tea. I will try these very soon.
Donsuemor Chocolate Madeleine
I remember an episode of FRIENDS where Ross tried a madeleine their manny made. He dubbed them cloud like I beleive. I am not sure how madeleines should taste because I ha never had one until now. I am not too crazy about it. The texture was good and light but I didnt care for the chocolate after taste. I'm not sure what to think of these. Maybe you guys could give me your input.
A simple chocolate square with huge taste. I just love peanut butter and chocolate! This was no different!
Overall I love this subscription box! Another nice discovery service. I love trying new foods I otherwise probably wouldn't have seen in my sleepy little town!
I hope you all enjoy my reviews.
Disclaimer: I purchased this box with my own money and all opinions are my own!


  1. Awesome review! I am glad I got to enjoy it with you! I am going to give them one more month and then go from there =-)

  2. Thanks for this review. I just received the February Love with Food box for $2, too, yesterday. I really enjoyed the chips, as well! So far that's all I've eaten. I hope I enjoy the madeleine more than you. lol

  3. I loved the Madelaine it tasted like moist Chocolate cake to me!
