Love With Food Gluten Free box October 2015

Love with Food
October 2015 box

What is Love With Food?
Love With Food helps you discover new organic or all-natural snacks delivered to your door every month. Our subscription membership starts as low as $10/month. Every month, Love With Food members will receive a curated box of unique, hard-to-find tasty snacks which varies based on seasonal themes.

For every box sold, we donate a meal to several food banks such as the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength - No Kid Hungry. Join us to help end child hunger one meal at a time!

Say goodbye to boring grocery selections and start discovering your Love With Food experience!
This month’s theme is ‘Touchdown Treats.’ It’s October, and we’re heading into the height of the US football season! This month, Love With Food partnered with World Champion Pro Football player Steve Weatherford to bring us some FANtastic gluten-free snack to munch on while we’re cheering on our favorite team!

I really love the fact that this month, for every box sold through Love With Food, a donation was made to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. Having been born and raised during my childhood years in Central New Jersey AND having to have used food banks myself during my teenage years, this charity is very close to my heart.

Let’s take a look at what’s inside. (Please note: I was unable to get photos this month. Between a SLEW of packages being delivered that day and Mama Melissa needing one of the wrappers for a project she was working on, the wrappers/packaging were destroyed before photos could be taken)

ADULT COMPLETE PACK BY SMARTY PANTS
All the vitamins to power through the fourth quarter, plus no GMOs and a hit of sweet fruity flavor. Talk about the perfect game time treat.

Was kind of a disappointment, since there were only two in the package. But they were just the right amount of sweetness to them
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO

CHOCOLATE SALTED CARAMEL PROTEIN BAR BY LUNA
This salty-sweet chocolate-y treat is packed with 12g of protein to get you into the endzone every time.

Last time I ate a Luna Bar, it was nasty. But, just like the SoyJoy bar, they must have changed the recipe. I really liked this. It almost tasted like a chewy granola bar.
TASTE: 9.5/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free

SALTED CARAMEL SQUARES BY TAHANA CONFECTIONS
What better way to keep up the energy to cheer for the home team (and celebrate National Caramel Month) than with this perfect salty-sweet fall treat!

This was just a caramel square. No other way to describe it. Almost melted in your mouth. I really enjoyed this.

CHEDDAR AND PEPPER PREMIUM PUFFED CORN BY COSMOS CREATIONS
Lighter-than-air puffs exploding with cheesy, spicy flavor - the perfect halftime (or anytime) snack that won’t weigh you down later on.

These reminded me of a smaller, spicier version of Chester Cheetah's Puffcorn. Very light, very airy. The cheddar and pepper flavors compliment each other very nicely.
TASTE: 8/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free

HOME COOKED SALTED VIRGINIA PEANUTS BY HUBS
When you think gametime, you think peanuts, right? These crunchy, perfectly salty nuts will make you feel like you’re cheer from the 50-yard line.

Tasted JUST like Planters peanuts. I didn't see much, if any, difference.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO

FRUIT CRISPS BY BROTHERS ALL NATURAL
No time to grab fresh fruit for a healthy third quarter treat? These crisps are the next best thing with no added sugar in an easy-to-eat package.

FROM THE BACK: What in the world are Brothers-All-Natural Fruit Crisps?
We start with luscious FRESH fruit, straight from the best growing regions in the world. We then send it directly through our state-of-the-art FREEZE-DRIED process that gently removes the water from the fresh fruit and transforms it into a delicious, delightfully light, and flavorful crisp. As always, we simply use fruit, nothing artificial, and definitely no added sugar… just fruit, THE BEST FRUIT!
Finally, the perfect anytime snack.
Brothers-All-Natural Fruit Crisps are perfect for trips, school lunches, at the office, or just to eat around the house.

I love dried fruit. it’s easier for me to eat without all the drippy mess of the juices. I received two bags of these -- Fuji Apple and Strawberry & Banana.
My favorite of the two bags was the Fuji Apple flavor. Dried apples are one of my favorite dried fruit to begin with, and these had TONS of real apple flavor to them. The freeze-dry method didn’t take any apple flavor away, like some other dried fruits are known to do.
I’m not overly crazy for the Strawberry & Banana flavor. I like the freeze-dried bananas, but the strawberries tasted WAY too tart for my liking. It seemed like the freeze-drying took some of the sweetness of the strawberries with it. What I DID like was eating a handful of each at the same time gave me a nice Strawberry-Banana yogurt flavor, which is my favorite yogurt flavor.

BUFFALO STYLE REAL CHICKEN JERKY BY CHEF’S CUT
Bench Boring jerky forever with this spicy, protein-packed snack perfect for chowing on during commercial breaks. Trust us, you’ll be back for more.

I am a chicken fanatic. I personally identify as a pollo-pescetarian. I probably could eat chicken, turkey and seafood for the rest of my life and be fine with it.
That being said, I LOVED this jerky. It was just the right amount of spice for me, but it didn't make my mouth burn while eating it.

SEA SALT SWEET CORN TORTILLA CHIPS BY OFF THE COB
Change your chip game and sub in these snacks. With a balance of salty and sweet and no artificial stuff, they’ll be the all-star of your party.

FROM THE BACK: Every summer for the past 50 years, my family has been farming the best sweet corn in Ithaca, NY. At 22, I launched this company to bring that amazing sweet corn taste to you.
Why sweet corn?
A delicious summertime treat, sweet corn is often boiled or grilled and eaten right off the cob! Hand picked during 3 days of peak ripeness when its kernels are soft & sweet, Sweet corn gives our chips a delicious sweet & savory crunch!

In all my years of eating corn snacks, I've never had a snack like this. These were round corn chips, but it didn't have the tortilla chip, or even the corn chip flavor. There was a touch or sweetness to it, and that flavor enhanced the sea salt flavor, for a really awesome flavor.
From what I see, there is only one flavor, Sea Salt.
Enjoy $10 off 12 packs at offthecobchips.com. Use discount code: TOUCHDOWNTREATS (expires February 7, 2016)

GLUTEN FREE PASTA BY LA ROSA
Nothing brings people together like football -- and some serious pasta. This stuff tastes just the real thing, so everyone is sure to be a fan.

I love pasta... absolutely LOVE it. Even though I'm half Polish, I wonder if my family isn't actually part Italian, with the amount of pasta I can eat.
But whereas normal pasta is made from duram wheat flour, this pasta is made from corn and rice flour...
AND IT IS SO GOOD.
I ended up making this, melting butter into it, and then sprinkling a GENEROUS helping of Outer Spice Original blend and mixing it all together... OMG, Heaven in a bowl. I could NOT taste a difference between this and duram wheat-based pasta.
TASTE: 10/10, although that doesn't do it justice.
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO

I really don't see disabled people having a problem eating these snacks, barring any chewing/swallowing issues. The hardest thing I see would be opening the box and the individual packages. Cooking the La Rosa pasta may also be difficult for someone not steady around a stove.

The Love With Food Gluten-Free box has merged with Taste Guru. Please visit this link for more info.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Love the variety in this month's box. I like how I got snacks, fruit, meat AND a meal in the same box.
