Let’s see what’s in May’s Love With Food Tasting Box!
I love seeing this bright red package perched inside my mailbox every month. Snaaacks!
A peek inside — looks very promising!
The info card/booklet reveals everything included in the box, as well as full ingredient lists and nutritional info for each item. I was pleasantly surprised to see that every item but one was vegan-friendly. Woo!
PB Thins Peanut Butter Crackers – Well, hello there peanut butter crackers. You look quite tasty. I haven’t tried these yet (over my cookie intake for the day), but I have a feeling they’re delicious. So happy to see that they’re both vegan and gluten-free. Oh, and only 100 calories per serving. Score!
Smooze Coconut & Pink Guava Fruit Ice – SMOOOOZE! I love these things! I first discovered them in a Love With Food box about a year ago and ended up buying more from their shop. I’ve never tried this pink guava flavor, but if it’s anywhere near as good as the pineapple one, I’ll be getting my hands on some more ASAP.
The Better Chip Spinach & Kale Corn Chips – I *think* I’ve had these once before and I *think* they were pretty good. (That really helps, right?) The ingredients include whole grain corn masa flour, spinach, kale, and sea salt.
Inka Crops Sea Salt & Vinegar Inka Corn – Okay, I KNOW I’ve had these before. They’re super crunchy roasted corn kernels flavored with all natural ingredients. I’m not a huge fan of salt & vinegar snacks, but I’ll eat ’em.
Vintage Bee Hibiscus Creamed Honey – This is listed on the info card as being vegan, but being that it’s actual honey, it’s technically not. That said, some vegans do consume honey if it’s ethically produced, so… Yeah. This contains just two ingredients: raw honey and hibiscus flowers. You can spread it on toast, crackers, or even desserts for an extra touch of sweetness.
Home Free Mini Lemon Burst Cookies – I love Home Free cookies so I was excited to see these in the box. Even more so since this is a flavor I’ve never seen before. All of the other flavors I’ve had have been delicious and are all free of many common allergens.
Go Organics Hard Candy – Two pieces of organic hard candy were included. One in “Blood Orange”, the other in “Iced Mango Mint”. These are made with all natural ingredients and are both vegan and gluten-free.
Dick & Jane Baking Company Smart Educational Snacks – This is the only obvious non-vegan snack in the entire box. I’m totally fine with that though, because these “smart cookies” will make a nice treat for my kiddos. They may not know how to read, but they can sure eat cookies.
Honestly, when I saw the fiesta theme I didn’t have high hopes for many (if any) vegan-friendly products… The fact that all but one (well, two if you count the honey) are vegan made me want to bust out some maracas and have a lil’ fiesta of my own. 😉

May 2015 Love With Food Review
I love this month’s box. LOVE. Is it mainly because almost all of the items are vegan? Yes. Yes it is. haha However, there are plenty of vegan-friendly products they’ve sent in past boxes that I wasn’t a fan of (I’m looking at you, seasoning packets). This box was full of cookies, chips, an ice pop, candy… I mean, what’s not to love?
What do the stars mean?
★ = Crummy ★★ = Just Okay ★★★ = Good ★★★★ = Awesome ★★★★★ = Extraordinarily Awesome
