Over on the other blog I write for, Simply Southern Mom, we’re starting a new Friday series. Not only can you look forward to Chronic Coffee Chat here on A Southern Celiac, you can now look forward to Gluten Free Fridays on Simply Southern Mom! I don’t know if you’re excited, but I sure am. Mom’s house is currently filled with different gluten free products just waiting for me to eat them and write about them. It’s fantastic.
I’ve always wanted to try the Love With Food Gluten Free box, but I wasn’t sure if I would like it. When we were offered a free box to try for Gluten Free Friday, I was ecstatic. Um, of course I want to try it (and potentially sign up and get them every month forever and ever.)
So, I was really excited when the Love With Food Gluten Free subscription box. So excited, in fact, that I made a Facebook Live video! I hate being in front of the camera, despite wanting to be an actress for most of my life, so this was a big thing for me.
Uh, Critter helped out a little. If you’re not up to watching a video, don’t worry. I’m going to talk a little bit about Love With Food, what we got, and what I thought.
Love With Food is a monthly subscription box full of snack food. For every box bought, Love With Food donates meals to hungry children. I am a huge snacker, so I’ve been eyeing the subscription box just about forever. Plus, you all know how I feel about companies that give back, right? There was just one thing: I wasn’t sure if I wanted to commit to a subscription. The Gluten Free Love With Food subscription is $20/month for a one year plan. It contains 10-12 Celiac safe snacks each month, most of which are dairy free as well. A lot of celiacs, myself included, are lactose intolerant, so dairy free is an added bonus.
This month’s box contained:
suckers from Yum Earth foods: I haven’t tried these yet, but I have tried Yum Earth’s Sour Beans, which are being featured in this week’s Gluten Free Friday. Spoiler: the Sour Beans are good.
Hagensborg Truffle Pig Chocolate Truffles: we received two of these. One was caramel and the other was peppermint. We’ve only eaten the caramel one so far, but for a good reason! It was so good that I’m scared to eat the other. If that doesn’t make sense, then you don’t have Celiac disease. I mean, you know that Celiac feel when all your tasty (expensive) safe snacks are gone and it’s back to plain potato chips or something? Once I eat the next chocolate, I won’t have any more of them, and I like them too much to let them go. If you can’t tell, these were my favorite thing in the box.
Blue Diamond NutThins Crackers: we received one snack size bag of sea salt NutThins and one snack size bag of cheddar cheese NutThins. I’ve had NutThins about a million times in the past, but I love a safe salty snack.
World Peas: In Santa Barbara Ranch and Texas BBQ flavors, these are small packs of flavored, crispy green peas. I haven’t tried them yet, but I did notice that they were vegan!
IWon Protein Chips: I haven’t tried these yet, but I’m super excited that they’re sriracha flavored. I can’t get enough of sriracha, as 2014-trendy as it is. Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for hot sauce in general. I’m also intrigued by the 20 grams of protein these potato chips offer per serving.
HomeFree Mini Cookies: I find salty snacks easier to acquire than decent-tasting gluten free sweets. That’s my excuse for eating a brownie for breakfast the other day. I mean, when am I going to come across another great gluten free baked good? I might have found it in these Lemon Burst HomeFree mini cookies. I’m saving them for when my sweet tooth strikes again!
FreeYumm Honey Oat Bar: I’m not the biggest fan of bars. They’re not what I generally reach for when I want a snack. So, this was the least exciting part of the box for me. I plan to have it for breakfast when I’m on the go, because I’m bad about skipping breakfast.
Annie Chun’s Original Seaweed Crisps: I like seaweed. A lot of people don’t like seaweed, but I love it. It kind of tastes like the ocean, but less gritty. These original seaweed crisps combine seaweed snacks with brown rice crackers, and it results in a weird salty, umami snack that I find myself weirdly drawn to. It’s great that a serving size is half a bag, because that’s how much I ate in one go.
The box also included two packets of cinnamon. I didn’t think to check the brand, because I don’t love cinnamon and never, ever, ever use it.
So, that’s my review of Love With Food gluten free subscription box. As you can see, it was almost entirely a hit with me! I love that two meals are donated to hungry children for every gluten free Love With Food subscription box purchased. I like that most of the snacks are dairy free along with being Celiac friendly. I think $20 is a fair price point for all I got.
What do you think of the Love With Food gluten free subscription?
