As mentioned before, I always love featuring businesses and brands with a “heart”. When I conduct product reviews, that is one aspect I do like to look at. I love to see how a company gives back. This is why I was more than thrilled to learn that Love with Food is definitely one of those companies who gives!
Join Love with Food’s monthly Best Bites membership, and each month you will receive one of their “Best Bites” boxes filled with 5-6 tasty gourmet food samples. For every box sold, Love with Food donates a meal to the No Kid Hungry program, which helps fight hunger. The Best Bites membership is just $14 per month, which includes shipping. You can earn points through the program to receive free products and samples! Plus you’ll have access to member only discounts for full size versions of each product. If you would like to give the membership as a gift, there are also options available for 3 or 6 month memberships to the program. You can cancel any time! Each month has a theme that the samples all center around. For instance, for the month of February, the theme is “Treats for your Sweetheart”.
Love with Food generously sent me their January Best Bites sampler box! The theme had to do with healthy snacks, which is right up my alley since I’m currently on a health food kick. I was excited for the opportunity to sample various snacks that would go right along my new health food kick.
I love that the box includes a card describing the foods you are sampling. One of the first samples I tried was the Chocolate Mint Truffle Tea by Mighty Leaf Tea. As someone who loves chocolate, this caffeine-free Rooibos tea was absolutely delicious and satisfied my chocolate craving, while packed with antioxidants. The Stretch Island Fruit Co. Fruit Leather was absolutely perfect as a mid-day snack while at work. Naturally sweetened with a half serving of fruit, I was happy to see it was only 45 calories. The “Plain Jane” Peanut Butter Granola by Nuts About Granola was absolutely perfect to mix in with my yogurt. It gave my yogurt that perfect “crunch” and a little more substance. Plus I just love the taste of peanut butter and cinnamon. The Pacific Sea Salt flavored Somersault Snacks were these little nuggets made of sunflower seeds and grain packed with that perfect crunch. Sahale Snacks ‘ Almonds with Cranberry, Honey, and Sea Salt was a nice trail mix to take with you on the go!
My absolute favorite item included in the box was the Ginger People’s Ginger Chews. They included both the Original flavor and Spicy Apple flavor. These chews were soft candy with that spicy pop of real ginger flavor! They were hot and peppery, just the way I like them. The Spicy Apple flavor had a nice hint of apple that wasn’t too overpowering to the ginger flavor I love so much.
