January 2013 Love with Food box theme!

I love to travel and love trying new foods from around the world. It’s almost like this theme was made for me.

ITALY: I have never met a Biscotti I didn’t like, so that was a no-brainer Sunday morning coffee dunker!

COLOMBIA: Despite the “lightly salted” label, I expected the Plantain Chips to be sweet. Nothing too special there.

VENEZUELA: Do you know how excited I was to see this ChocoPod? I received one in a Birchbox of mine not too long ago. Then I used some Birchbox points to buy an assortment pack to share with my husband. My absolute favorite of the assortment pack was the Firecracker ChocoPod. I guess we were just meant to be together. 😉 You must try these Firecracker ones!

JAPAN: My husband swore these Tea Cookies were made of seaweed. Without the descriptions in the box, there was no way to know because the bag they came in was unmarked. When I received the list above in an email I forwarded it to him. His reply? “Common knowledge:  seaweed is composed of Black sesame & green tea.  *duh*”

FRANCE: The GoGo Squeez came in my October box, but I seriously didn’t mind getting it again. This is an excellent healthy snack on the go. And I had no idea they were made in France!

INDIA: I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Chai. One night this week, I made this to help stave off a binge while I was lounging around waiting for my back to heal.

BELGIUM: I love chocolate, so those New Tree Chocolates were a treat for me! They were perfect for work. {I usually bring one dark chocolate with me to work each day to have with my coffee.} The flavors were unique and something extra special.

I adore my Love with Food boxes and look forward to trying new snacks each month. I can earn points for reviewing the products and use them to order my favorites. In addition, for each box that ships out each month, LWF donates a meal to a hungry child. This is a win-win in my book.

Looking back, here are my Love with Food boxes from 2012:

December 2012 – Happy Holidays

November 2012 – Happy Thanksgiving

October 2012 – Jumpstart the School Year

September 2012 – Back in Skinny Jeans

August 2012 – Travelin’ Treats

July 2012 – United States of Summer: Americana Celebration – My First Box!
