Love with Food Review & Giveaway
Today I want to tell you about a product I had the opportunity to review this week, “Love with Food”. Here’s a pic of the pretty red box that arrived at my door.
“Love with Food” is a monthly subscription service that delivers samples of gourmet food to your door each month, allowing you to try all kinds of new and different products. And who doesn’t like a surprise. It’s fun to open up a box of “Food with Love” and discover new and great products. The benefit is you can try out products and if you like them you can go online at “Love with Food” to order more of the products you love. Also, for each box that is purchased, they donate a meal to food banks all across the country to help combat childhood hunger. Now that’s something to feel good about.
The Story Behind “Love with Food”
“Love With Food” was born from adversity and a desire to help others. After escaping an abusive relationship, Aihui Ong set out on a journey to find herself. She globetrotted around the world. She explored many cultures and went on many adventures and while experiencing many spectacular sites it did not go unnoticed the devastating poverty she witnessed around the world. This would later become a driving passion for Ong, who now donates a meal to feed the hungry for every “Love with Food” Box sold.
After twenty countries and twelve months later, Ong returned to America still searching for that something to give meaning to her life. After meeting with a good friend who was fighting breast cancer, Ong realized how blessed she truly was. Around the same time, Ong was inspired to do something after one of her other friends lost her food-producing business that ended in deep debt.
This stirred something in Ong to start a business. Her love of food and technology collided into what has become “Love with Food”. She poured her passion into promoting passionate food producers, feeding the hungry and providing smiles to customers faces.
My review of the August “Love with Food” box
I received the August “Love with Food” box. The theme for August was Travelin’ Treats. My box contained the following:
- Dried Montmorency Cherries by Cherry Bay Orchards
- Coconut Toffee Peanuts by Sconza Candy
- Vegan Lemony Lemon Cookie by the Sun Flour Baking Company
- Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie by the Sun Flour Baking Company
- East Shore Key Lime & Ginger Mustard
- Skinny Dipping Pretzels by East Shore
- Key Lime with Ginger Mustard by East Shore
- Gin-Gin candies Super Strength Ginger & Caramel by The Ginger People
- Tangerine Glee Gum
I love all the products except for the key lime ginger mustard, but blame it on my taste buds. I just have never cared for gourmet mustard, but everything else in the box was delicious. My family and I all shared the cookies and the consensus was they were really good. My favorite from the “Love with Food” box was the Lemon Cookie and the Coconut Toffee Peanuts. Yummy! I’m planning on ordering more. I really liked the dried cherries. They were very moist and not overly dried out. They were a hit with my daughter who doesn’t even like Cherries. And the Tangerine Glee Gum was a hit too. All in all we really enjoyed all the products except for the gourmet mustard.
I really enjoyed receiving the “Love with Food” box and getting to learn about companies that I had never heard of before. I think there is just something special about receiving a gourmet gift box each month and being surprised with tasty treats.
The “Love with Food” box would be an awesome gift to give yourself, a friend or loved one. This would also make for a very unique Christmas gift Idea. It’s a gift that would keep giving all year-long. Your recipient would receive a “Love with Food” box each and every month. A simple reminder of how much you care through out the year. This is one gift you never have to worry about being re-gifted. And you can feel good knowing that with every box purchased, “Love with Food” donates a meal to food banks all across the country to help combat childhood hunger.
