It was a pleasant surprise seeing my box waiting for me when I got home from work. I tried the

...firecracker chocolate first. I was most excited about this, but was let down. I'm sure it would be good to some people. However it just made my stomach hurt.

The chocolate with cinnamon in it was delicious. The plantain chips were ok. They have a very strong after taste to me.

I still have the other yums in my box to try later!

I got my box today...I wasn't sure what to expect since this was my first month. I was a tad disappointed in the size of the samples. Those chocolates were TINY, although tasty. Glad I got this from Groupon...I will be letting it go after my three months are over.

 

That firecracker chuao was certainly interesting!

I feel the same way, glad I got to try it though

This box makes me sad. The first few were awesome, so I signed up for a year, but recently it seems to be more of a miss than a hit for me. (Though i did love December) The individual items were generally small and an already small box didn't seem filled. At least this donates a meal somewhere, I suppose. I'm also glad for the 500 points this month. It is good to be able to get something inexpensively from their store with points.

I got a gift subscription for Christmas, and my first box arrived today. It's really not bad...of course I didn't actually pay for it, so it was also free. 

 

I'll see how the next couple of boxes are before deciding whether or not to subscribe.

The box was small, the stuff was small, and one of my items was open. But guh

I too LOVED the plantain chips. I was so excited when I went to TJ Maxx the next day and found a full size bag for $2.99. :-)

I may ask you to mail me caseloads them ;) Because these are pretty darn good even for plantain chips. I've had some really /bad/ plantain chips before. These were excellent for plantain chips.

haha I could when I go back there :P and yes finding the perfect plantain chips is a challenge haha XD

post #41 of 49

Especially in a country where plantains don't grow :P

 

On a side note, drinking the chai tea. It's good, but too sweet.

post #42 of 49

ya good point :P did you add sugar?

post #43 of 49

Nope. I added some milk, but I usually taste before adding sweetener. And it still tastes sugary.

Finally got my box today and I logged into my account to give feedback, and lo and behold it says I've completed all feedback...which is not the case! Anyone else encountering this problem?

Maybe surveys aren't up? Or possibly, since they credited everyone 500 points for this box because it was missing the card, they aren't doing surveys this month?

That's definitely a possibility. I won't be losing sleep over it I guess. Anyway...not sure how I feel about the plantain chips. Way more like potato chips than I expected! Almost no banana flavor at all. Very odd. And those NewTree chocolates are teeny tiny! Not a bad box in terms of variety, but everything is so darn small! I'm basically making a little meal out of my box as we speak (not a very healthy meal, but whatever).

I got my box on Saturday and was able to leave feedback right away.

January's box was my first Love With Food box. I posted a review on my blog: http://rainbowglamour.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/love-with-food-january-2013-box-update/

 

My favorites are the Chuao Chocolatier chocolate and the Turbana plantain chips. Both of which I definitely will look into getting more of. I enjoyed the box overall, but it seemed to be lacking, in comparison to previous months. I only paid $2 this month with a coupon I found, but since I'm going to be paying full price next month, I'm a little hesitant to stay around. :/

Just read about this box on a beauty blog. I was able to sign up for my 1st box for free, just had to pay shipping. Can't wait to try out the snacks.
