Love with Food- May 2013 Review

Hello Everyone! I'm back, and officially a graduate of College with my Associate degree in Humanities and Social Sciences for Psychology (: Yay! I am now free to catch up and review everything!

With that said, here is my review of the Love with Food May Box!

                                                  Theme: Happy Mother's Day!
Love with Food- May Box!
Replacement Box I received. Only difference: Blueberry Almond Crunch.

Items in box:

May's Mystery Item  by Mrs. May's Naturals - Got it in the Coconut Almond Flavor & Blueberry Almond
My opinion:  These are fantastic! Great on Yogurt, or to simply munch on as it is.  They are almost like granola- pretty yummy. Do note that the are not too sweet, and hold a nutty aftertaste.

•Authentic Almond Biscotti  by Biscotti Bari
 My opinion: My mother and my friend think these are the best. I have to say, I agree! The Almond flavor gives it a nice and comforting taste.  Great with a hot cup of coffee (or tea).

•All-Natural Strawberry Preserves  by Bonne Maman
 My opinion: Received this in a Goodies Company Box, and still have not tried it.  I'm assuming it's like jam, so it'll most likely will taste good. Hopefully.  I admit, I am a bit tempted to try this in vanilla yogurt- Yikes!

•Hand Drip Single-Origin Coffee  by Caffe Borsa
 My opinion: Is it possible to adore coffee? I am a HUGE fan of coffee, and I knew, the instant I saw this, that I would just immediately fall in love with it. Mmm. More please? (:

•Latte Candy  by Bali's Best
 My opinion: Pretty good! They have a nice creamy milky filling in the center, whereas the outer candy part gives it the coffee taste- a true latte flavoring in the making. Not something I would have constantly, for I prefer drinking my coffee, than eating it!

• "Great Full" Vegan Sweet Potato Cookie  by The Cookie Department
  My opinion: Whoa. Just Whoa.  This is amazing and super yummy!! This tastes like an oatmeal cookie with tiny pieces of cranberries in it. The cookie is soft, while the cranberry gives it a chewy taste.  Very Filling- and very much recommended.

•Original Cajun Seasoning Blend  by Slap Ya Mama
  My opinion: I LOVE spicy seasoning! This reminds me of the Creole Seasoning I received in a Crave box- was simply magnificent. It tastes amazing mixed into rice, soups (Mmm! Especially in chicken flavored soup), and meats!

•Tomato Crunch  by Snapz Crisps 
My opinion:   Have not tried these. This is the only item in the box that I'm hesitating on trying.  I'm not a fan of tomatoes, and I don't really enjoy dried out food. Heard it tastes good in a sandwich or salad, so we'll see!

Overall, I LOVED this Month's box!! Chances are, I will try to stick with them again for next month (My birthday month). Here's hoping it'll be a good one as well!

Hello everyone! So, I'll be back to posting reviews after my graduation and finals are done and over with! Yay (:
So till then, I have found a rather snatchable deal on Plum District.

Plum district is...
"an e-commerce platform and media property focused strictly on Moms and their needs. We are By Moms, For Moms, a community of moms connecting other moms to products and inspiration to make our lives easier. We’re here to spark the sort of connections that make mom’s day by offering great values for her and her family."
You can snatch up deals that are discounted 50 to 80% off! Just sign up/subscribe.

The current deal that caught my attention is for Healthy Surprise, a subscription service for healthy snackers. The coupon given is a free coupon for 20$ off ANY subscription plan for Healthy Surprise.

 The cheapest payment plan is 33$ + 6.99$ Shipping (Starter Box).  With the 20$ off coupon, the box comes down to only 19.99$- A pretty sweet deal, considering how you can feed 1-2 people with some of the best healthy snacks out there!

If you would like to see an example of what Healthy Surprise sends out for the starter box, you can check out a previous review here.

The best part? The coupon expires in July- it gives you enough time to do your research and decide whether you want to get it or not. (:  So why not subscribe to Plum District? Trust me, the deals are really worth it (especially if you are looking for some good gifts for a mother).

Anyways, if I find anymore deals, I'll be sure to alert you all! Till then, Congratulations to any other College Graduate that will be graduating this month- Best wishes to you all.
