Love with Food -- August Box

post #1 of 83
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know what's going on with the Love with Food August box?  I knew July's was going to be late because they sent out that email, but why haven't we received August's? 

 

They used to be super consistent and I always got my box between the 5th and 7th of the month...but today's the 8th and the website hasn't updated yet, so I'm wondering if they've even shipped yet.

This was the e-mail that I got on July 8th, so I assume that they hope it will arrive by the 10th, and you've been lucky to get it earlier.  I have never gotten a shipping notice.

Every month, we strive to ensure your box will arrive before the 10th of each month. Unfortunately, for this month, we were not able to do that. Due to the storm in Virginia, which caused the Governor to declare a state of emergency, one of the products featured in the July box was not able to ship to our warehouse in California in time. As such, we can only ship out July boxes during the week of July 16th.


We sincerely apologize for the delays. To all our members on the East Coast region, we hope you and your family are safe.

Got my box today! I'm excited to try everything except the mustard, peanut butter cookie, and pretzels. Three of my least favorite things in one box, yikes.

post #14 of 83

I wasn't sure about the mustard b/c it wasn't sealed properly. The darn lid was loose to begin with and there wasn't any protective seal. :( I think I'm just gonna toss mine. Such a shame. I love mustard. 

 

Other than that, we loved everything else. The cookies didn't last long in my house. lol.

Anyone tried the Gin-Gins?  Do they actually help at all with motion sickness?  Because if they do, I'm buying a freaking purse-full!

 

Love the coconut toffee peanuts and the dried cheeries -- so yummy!

post #16 of 83

Although I enjoyed both boxes (July and August) I am trying really hard to eat healthier, so I may cancel this one soon. I noticed next month will have a 'snacks for after your workout' theme so I may keep it for September, but I dont like that all the snacks are super sugary and unhealthy..

Those peanuts were so good. I can't find anywhere that sells them!

post #18 of 83

The peanuts really were delicious! I had a small handful, went to clean up a bit in the kitchen, and by the time I had gotten back out there 5ish minutes later, my husband had finished them all, so I definitely need to get some of those. I also loooooved the lemon cookie!

I am on the look out for healthier snacks too. Where did they say that it's for after work out cause if it's confirmed I will sign up for September!!

Also, if anyone has a referral code they can send it to me via pm.

It said so in a little flyer in my August box. I can refer you :)

LwF has great customer service. Our box was missing the Lemon cookie so they sent us another whole box!

I got a free box in April and loved it. I'm considering resubbing because what i've seen so far seems great. But I wanted to ask what you guys think of the price, is it worth $12 to you? And are the items fairly healthy? If not I could probably just go pick up junk food crap on my own lol.

Healthy as in diet food, no. Healthy as in less processed foods, yes.  : )

I think it's worth the $12. I have never done an actual price calculation however. Maybe someone else has?

I haven't tried those specifically, but I have tried a few other things quite like them and they do help me when I get nauseated in the car.  Ginger naturally helps settle a stomach, and these are nice and portable.  I tend to keep them on hand.  World Market or Asian markets usually has something similar for sale at any given time.

Did they send anyone else a reusable tote bag? It came with this months box for me.

I dont agree with this, most if not all of the products I have received are processed.
post #27 of 83
And unhealthy, but tasty. Just not good for u. Lol
post #28 of 83

Haha I don't think they're healthy either. I kinda meant that it's stuff/brands you don't see in the big mass market stores. (At least in my experience) Misuse of the word processed. Eep.

: )

post #29 of 83

I don't think Love With Food is healthy at all (though I wish it were, as I just ate the entire Sanders Milk Chocolate Hot Fudge topping from last month).  It does however typically have small batch products that are at least made with ingredients I can pronounce.  They aren't organic, but neither do they contain chemicals that I don't know what they are.  I didn't get a reusable tote.  Hope it is cute and fun!

I am so exciting to get this box! It's really funny I was talking to a guy co worker about all my beauty boxes! He wanted to have a fun box to come home to so he got this and recommended me to get it! Fun to see a guy get excited so I'm excited to get it for sure:)
