(Stay tuned for a special Valentine's giveaway towards the end of this post!)
So after searching around on My Subscription Addiction for a subscription box to try out for free or on the cheap to see if I liked it, I found this Love with Food box! They had a promotion going where the first month was free (except for shipping), so for all of this I paid $2!
The first thing I found upon opening my box was this pamphlet giving a description of all of the products inside! Isn't it cute??
It says... "What does 2015 have in store? All good things! While now's the time for New Year's Resolutions and looking foreword, give yourself a little love for what you have already achieved. With the purchase of this box, you helped to feed a hungry child. If that's not a great way to start off the New Year, we're not sure what is!"
And this was what I saw after moving all of the paper...
The first thing on top was Breakfast in Paris Black Tea by Stash
"Ideal for that sleepy Sunday Morning, steep yourself a warm cup with notes of lavender an d bergamot and melt into your comfy couch"
Gluten free, Vegan
Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs by Britt
"Straight from the Costa Rican rainforest, pop a few at a time and these bittersweet little babies will get you fired up for a fresh start!"
Review: I don't normally like dark chocolate, but these were pretty good! I liked them until I realized this tiny package is supposed to be 2.5 servings!!
Velvet Truffeles by Alter Eco
"Made with pure Peruvian chocolate, this sweet little treat is 99.97% organic, 81% fair trade certified ingredients and 100% to die for!"
Non-GMO, Gluten free, Organic
Review: Better than Lindor Truffles! They were creamy, melt upon contact amazing
In-Shell Almonds by Bobalu
"Move over pistachios. In-shell almonds are taking over your game! Crunchy, fun and full of protein, looks like someone's got a makeover for 2015"
Vegan, Gluten free
Not a fan of Almonds... gave them to my mom!
Chocolate Dipped Coconut Mini by Luna
"Looking for a little bar to get you through your big workout? Packed with all the right stuff to keep you going, you'll go (coco)nuts for this one!"
I would really like to try Luna bars, I just don't much like Coconut, and this is mom's favorite one, so she got it :)
Cassava Pops by Wai Lana
"At only about 100 calories per bag, these popped-not fried or baked-pups offer all the flavor of typical chips with a fraction of the fat."
Gluten free, Non-GMO, Vegan
Santa Fe Salsa Somersaults by Somersault Snack Company
"If seeds and grains are your new thing, you'll go head over heals for these tasty morsels."
Review: These were my favorite thing in the box!! They were big pieces full of sunflower seeds, and they were spicy, though I do wish a few more came in a pack!
Energy Kettle Cooked Apples by Big Slice
"A simple delectable way to get your 5-a-day, eat a pouch on your way to yoga and say bye-bye to those extra holiday lbs."
Non-GMO, Gluten free
Review: To tell the truth, these kind of terrified me at first! They are Green Coffee Raspberry Hibiscus flavor, and pink... but they actually taste very good :)
And at the very bottom on the box were all these papers, coupons, and TWO gift cards! A $40 Hello Fresh (a subscription box with all of the components for a meal) and a $15 Urban Remedy credit (towards $50).
So I had an idea... How about an early Valentine's giveaway???
This Giveaway will include:
$40 Hello Fresh gift card
$15 off $50 Urban Remedy gift card
25% off Cafe Britt
25% off Big Slice apples
$5 off $20 at Stashtea.com
$0.60 Stash Tea in store coupon
20% off Cinnful Sweet Heat Tortilla Chips by Chips Happen
$5 off a Love With Food Subscription
Lindor Truffles!! (because I couldn't let it all be healthy)
And finally, a Valentine's Day surprise!
To enter, subscribe to this blog, and write a quick comment on this post telling me you subscribed! It's that simple!
So in conclusion, I greatly enjoyed 5/8 products, am still inquisitive about the tea, and gave the other two products to my mom! Besides that, I received enough gift cards and coupons to pay for the original price of the box by themselves!
Guys, I think I'm gonna keep it!!
