Love with Food – November 2012

Standard

Okay, so I was going to start saving my subscription box posts for what I plan to call “Subscription Box Saturday”, but my Love with Food box just arrived! And I just couldn’t wait to share.

Why?

Because Love with Food is doubling its donations for the month of November to support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

You see, each month, a meal is donated to a hungry child for every subscription box of Love with Food that is shipped out. Not only have I loved the samples I’ve received, but I’ve loved this mission from my very first box.

But in November and December, for every box shipped, Love with Food is donating TWO meals to food banks located in the hardest hit areas of New Jersey and New York.

If you’ve even had an inkling of checking out what this subscription box of fun snacky samples is all about, why not try it now and help out your fellow Americans at the same time? Even better, get some great gifts out of the way by subscribing friends and family. Just a few clicks and you are done to treat yourgift recipients who live across the miles. And it’s the only $12 per month gift you’ll ever be thanked for… over and over again!

Now… for what came in the box:

Thanksgiving 2012 Love with Food Box Contents

This month’s fall favorites come from Amy Roloff of Little People, Big World on TLC. I’m not familiar with the show, but I know I’ll be familiar with these treats real soon!

I haven’t tried a-one-of-them, but here they are {clockwise from top left}:

  • Fruit.0 Organic Fruit Snack – Mango Pear Pineapple flavor – This feels like juice in the pouch, but I’m guessing is more like the GoGo Squeez Applesauce I received in a previous box.
  • Mini Crunch from Mrs. May’s – Cranberry Almond – 100 calorie snack with minimal ingredients. This is going in my lunch for an afternoon snack at work!
  • Inka Corn – I’m not sure what to make of these. The package reads “Roasted Giant Corn”. They kind of look like giant corn nuts {if I remember correctly what those look like}. This is a salty snack I’m likely to share with my husband.
  • Pumpkin Spice Tea from Stash Tea Company – I’m *almost* over the big fall pumpkin craze. Almost. I’ll give this a shot at work as well.
  • Chocolate Chunk Cookie from Skeeter Snacks – You had me at “Cookie”. Oh, who am I kidding? You had me at “Chocolate”.
  • Truffle Piglet from Hagensborg Chocolate – I bring one piece of dark chocolate with me to work every day. Yup, this will be the one I indulge in tomorrow!
  • Original Mulling Spices Blend from the Aspen Mulling Co.“DIRECTIONS: Mix contents with 8 oz. cup of Apple Cider or Juice, Red Wine, Tea or Brandy. Serve Hot or Cold.” Can you guess which one I will be doing? 😉

It seems that I am missing two items from my box that are listed on my insert: Turkey Bak Kwa Jerky from Little Red Dot Kitchen and Bhakti Chai.

I don’t want to seem ungrateful, most definitely during the month of gratitude. After all, one of the reasons I receive these boxes is to donate to a good cause. Still, I don’t know if they ran out or just missed these items, so I’ll still let Love with Food know…

This month also came with a few discount vouchers:

In case you’d like to see what’s come in my past boxes, here’s a link list, along with my favorite snack from each!
