Say goodbye to boring grocery selections and start discovering your Love With Food experience!
There’s so much to be thankful for this month: Fall weather, reunions with family, and most importantly delicious food. Love with Food is here with enough scrumptious snacks to make everyday feel like Thanksgiving. Need another reason to be thank-full? Every box sold donates meals to food banks around country.

I really love the fact that this month, for every box sold through Love With Food, a donation was made to a food bank in America. Having used food banks myself during my teenage years, these community services are very close to my heart.

Let’s take a look at what Love With Food was thank-full for this month!


^^Entire box -- Excuse the catalog, I didn't see it in the box.^^



COOKIES & CREME DREAM PROTEIN D’LITES BY NOGII
Need to power through that frenzied grocery shopping trip right before Thanksgiving? This sweet, crispy, energy-packed bar is here to the rescue.

Tasted like crushed oreos blended into a ‘brownie’ like treat. I didn’t see much energy that I gained from it, but it still tasted great.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free


MEDITERRANEAN BEAN PASTA AND VEGGIE KIT BY MODERN TABLE MEALS
This pasta is sure to put a new twist on your Thanksgiving traditions, and with delicious sauce and seasoning and zero GMOs, it’ll be a new favorite.

This tasted almost identical to the Mediterranean Green Lentil Rotini With Garlic Herb Sauce & Mediterranean Citrus Seasoning, which I’ve already reviewed here, just with a different name. I think I liked this MORE though, just for the fact *I* prepared this to instructions and it seemed to have a better taste.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO


WHITE CHOCOLATE AND CRANBERRY COOKIES BY WOW BAKING COMPANY
The sweetness of white chocolate, tartness of cranberry and comfort of soft cookie. Talk about a great way to spread the love to all your loved ones.

I actually did not like these… there were soft and tasted okay, but I thought the cookie part tasted too plain. Mama Melissa LOVED them, even though she HATES cranberries, and ended up eating these herself!
TASTE: 6/10 for me, 9/10 for Mama Melissa
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free


ORIGINAL ANCIENT GRAIN OATMEAL BY PURELY ELIZABETH
There’s nothing like comfort food to remind you what you’re thankful for. With no GMOs or gluten, this grain-packed goodness is sure to make the list.

I actually got the Apple Cinnamon Pecan flavor of this. While it was delicious, I did have to add sugar and milk to it to make it edible for me. The natural sweetness of the apples and cinnamon was lacking for my taste. If you don’t mind unsweetened or just naturally sweetened oatmeal, this will be right up your alley, but for me personally, it wasn’t sweet enough.

TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Organic, Vegan


JERKY BY FUSION JERKY
A twist on regular jerky with enough spices and big bold flavor to show everyone that you’ve taken this holiday thing to the next level.

I reviewed this brand of jerky previously and really enjoyed the flavors, so my tastebuds were doing a dance of joy when I saw the bag. I received the Lemon Pepper Chicken Jerky, which was my 2nd favorite flavor.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free


DATE SNACK PACK BY DATE LADY
Get ready to forget everything you thought about boring, flavorless dates. You’ll be thankful for these rich, fruity bites long after they’re gone.

I don’t know what to think of these dates. They don’t taste too bad; really sweet and tender. But the pits in the middle put me off from them. Chomping on a pit is not high on my daily to-do list.
You can get one full bag of dates with any order from ilovedatelady.com by using the code DATELADYLOVE
TASTE: 6.5/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Vegan


BAKING SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE MINI CHIPS BY ENJOY LIFE
The baking possibilities are endless -- just add a little imagination. But whatever you make, it’s sure to get serious thanks from the whole family.

I had a bit of an issue with these at first, but I just want to say that Love with Food’s customer service is AWESOME and took care of my issue promptly.
That being said, I liked these chips. Very chocolatey and actually on the sweet side for being semi-sweet. I couldn’t tell a different between the gluten free chips and normal baking chips. I plan to use the remaining of these to make Chocolate Chip Sugar cookies for the holiday company we’re having.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Vegan


WILD RICE CEREAL BY SIMPLY NATIVE FOODS
Need a power-packed breakfast before tackling the Turkey Day cooking? This cereal has enough antioxidants and fiber to get you through it all.

Sadly, I am not allowed to cook this while certain people are home. I need to sneak around JUST to make myself Ramen noodles or even boil my chicken for my chicken salads. If I ever DO have the opportunity to make this, I will come back and edit this.
TASTE: Unable to rate at this time
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO


TURBINADO NATURAL CANE SUGAR BY MAUI BRAND
Tip: Add a pinch of this to a warm mug of David’s Tea (any flavor will do) on a rainy day too remember why you’re so thankful fall is finally here.

This was interesting. It has the sweetness of normal sugar, but the texture of coarse salt. I didn’t see any difference in taste when adding this to a cup of coffee.
TASTE: 9.5/10
PERFECT FOR THESE DIETS: Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Vegan

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.

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

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

    1. This was actually a 'small' box. December's box (which I'll be posting a review for later today) had 14 items!!
