Love With Food- Feb Box 2013 Review

Hello everyone! So, I know I'm a bit late on this, but here is my review on the Love with Food February Box! Valentines Edition. Dun Dun duuuuuun.
 So starting with the February month, Love with Food changed their packaging- It is now left as it is, but inside a plastic encasing. Pretty cool!

What was inside:
[o] Jer's Squares -Original
Haven't tried these but I'm not a big fan of chocolate with peanut butter. Still, heard these were pretty good!

[o] Truffle Pigs by Hagensborg Chocolates  Caramel & Peanut Butter
Hmm. These Truffle Pigs were in a previous Love with Food box- though lasts time it was just milk chocolate. The Truffle Pigs are nothing but average chocolates. Not the best, but not the worst. They're a pretty good treat. Now with that said, the caramel one was amazing. I mean, caramel and chocolate is ALWAYS a winning combination. The peanut butter truffle was okay. Again, I don't really like peanut butter mixed with chocolate.

[o] Beanfield's Pico de Gallo Bean & Rice Chips
Yum! I was a bit hesitant on trying these, but these are really good! They have a spice to it, that isn't really spicy, but gives it a strong peppery type of taste.  It has a nice grain aftertaste.
[o] Millie's Savory Teas Tomato Basil Sipping Broth
Have NOT used this. First of all, I am not really fond of tea, and second of all...a sipping broth in the from of a tea bag? Hm. If it actually tastes like a broth, then I'm all for it. However, other review suggests that it tastes too watery, or just odd.
[o] Bobbysue's Nuts! Original Nuts
Ugh. I hate these. These were in a previous box, and it was just horrible. It's a heavy mixture of sweet meet spice. But I only tasted the sweet.
[o] Funny Face Flavored Dried Cranberries
I believe I got the strawberry flavored- haven't tried them yet, but my mother claimed they were yummy.
[o] Donsuemor Chocolate Madeleine
Whoa. Super soft, with a fluffy, and moist texture. Pretty good, especially with coffee! I was seriously tempted to order a whole box of these.
[o] Nektar Honey Crystals
Eh.. I don't drink tea, and I prefer regular sugar for my coffee. Wasn't used.

Overall this box was pretty good for me! I only paid 2$ due to a discount, so yay.  Worth the value.

Graze Box 5 Review- A nature/healthy snacks weekly subscription box!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to another Jaqtastic Review! Today, I will be reviewing my fifth Graze Nibbler Box. Surprisingly, I didn't rush into it as the first few. In either case, this was another 50/50 box. Oh and, this will be my last box I'll be getting till Mid March. (:

What was inside: 
Tutti frutti
blueberry infused cranberries, pineapple, cherry infused raisins and green raisins

My Opinion:
  My favorite item in the box!! The pineapples, though dried, had the most intense and sweet flavor ever.  The raisins were pretty awesome too. Yum! Will keep this in my Love List.

Cookies and cream
mini chocolate cookies, roasted hazels, white chocolate buttons and sunflower seeds
My Opinion: The chocolate cookies and chocolate buttons were the highlight of this snack. Scrumptious.  The Roasted Hazels were horrible and bland, where as the sunflower seeds were just nasty.  I'll keep this as a like only.

My thai
sweet chili sauce with baked soy bites
My Opinion:
I'm scared of trying these. I gave some to my moms boyfriend, and he described it as: Sweet and Sour.  Um. The smell alone goes along with his words- and let me tell you, it was NOT a pleasant smell. It kind of has a strong garlic and sour note. Hmm.. Prob will not like these, but will try them. Will keep them in my Try list.

Olive and rosemary bruschetta
mini tomato breadsticks, rosemary and garlic cashews and kalamata olive croutons
My Opinion: Uh. I'm not too sure about this one.  The tomato breadsticks were average, but were the best tasting item in this section.  The garlic cashews and olive croutons were horrible.  Especially the olive croutons- HATE olives, so bleh.  Gave these to my mom, and she loved these.  Will keep this in my try list.  On the plus side: My cat tried eating these. She shoved her head into it, grabbed a few, and rubbed her face and tongue on it. STOP IT TEDDY.


Overall, this was an okay box. I didn't hate nor love it.  Again, I will be putting  this on hold till Mid March due to all the food boxes I have received and have neither tasted nor review (Love with Food boxes and about 2-3 boxes of Goodies Co). So you can expect those to be the next reviews (:

P.S: Be sure to follow me on all my social media- I love to meet new people! (:
What is Graze?

To put it simply, Graze is a weekly subscription service, in which you choose from over 90 healthy snacks to be delivered to your home. There are two options to choose from- The NibbleBox and The LightBox. The best part is that it is ONLY 5$ a week. The downside? Graze is invite only. Sad, right?

Good news though, I have a referral code you can use to get your FIRST MONTH FREE. :D Great way to see if it suits your fancy. Here is the downside: Only 1 person can use this code. So hurry!
