Hello! It’s been too long, dear foodies! I’ve been meaning to review my June “Love with Food” box. But I’ve been distracted… I ended up taking this box with me to work and all these items were perfect for snacking in the office. Speaking of work, I will be moving into a new office! No more cubicle! But rather a shared office ! Yipee! Okay, first up, the coupons. And then my review! 🙂

Love with Food (June 2013)
Pretty box. What did I get?
These two larger items were the first items that caught my attention. They also turned out to be my favorite foods from this month’s box!
Roasted Seaweed Snack, Olive Oil
I have been eating these snacks FOREVER! I love them! I usually get them at the Asian supermarket … either with grapeseed oil or kimchi/spicy flavored. This particular pack met my expectations, crispy, thin, salted just right and perfect for a light snack! Rating: 8/10
Sweet Plaintain Chips by Turbana
Crunchy, sweet & salty means perfect for snacking! Each chip is bite size, maybe the size or a quarter or dollar coin. Stamp of approval from me (not that that means anything :P) Rating: 8/10
Flavrz Organic Citrus Hibiscus Drink Mix
I mixed this liquid drink into about 12-14 oz (I’m not quite sure how to measure that cup). You can kind of see the light, translucent coloring. It’s not as sweet as I imagined. Not too bad… however, I don’t think I would purchase these drinks. It tastes a bit weird after a bit. Rating: 5/10
smooze! All Natural Cocount + Mango Fruit Ice
Dairy-free and made with coconut water. Left it in the freezer for just an hour or so and then took it out to enjoy. A light creamy tight of consistency. The mango/coconut flavors were perfect together. Loved it! I could see this being a perfect snack for summer gatherings or a nice treat for kids. Rating: 6/10
pur pomegranate mint gum
Sweet and yet minty. A light sour taste also (from the pomegranate, maybe?). I like the flavor… however, the gum became hard pretty fast… Rating: 4.5/10
SoyJoy Mango Coconut Bar
I received one of these bars in my very first Birchbox (I think November 2012? Maybe?)… eh. I am not a fan. A lot of my friends seems to enjoy these, but they are too dry and not flavorful, IMO. Rating: 3/10
SurfSweets Fruity Bears
Nice little gummy treats! Just wish the sample pack contained more than just 5 little bears! Rating: 6.5/10
Do More Bars Pineapple Coconut Cereal Bar
Gluten free. Your typical cereal bar (almost rice krispy esque but not quite). Pretty good! Rating: 7/10
Other little bonuses:
- $50 wine gift card – meh
- Beach Trip Drink Recipe Card
- SoyJoy Coupon
Overall, a decent box! The value came to around $14.00 which actually just fits the $12.00 + $2.00 shipping cost of each month’s box. This was my very first food subscription box. I’m more of the kind of person who likes to get ingredient to make large meals … so I don’t think I’ll be staying with this subscription, but if you like to experiment with snacks, this seems like a perfect box!
