Love With Food June 2014 Review

My June 2014 Love With Food box showed up a few days ago. I haven’t posted a Love With Food review in a few months, but I am going to start posting them monthly again. After Citrus Lane, Love With Food is my second favorite subscription box. Love With Food has a theme each month, and this month’s theme was “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” I am not sure all of the food totally fit the theme, but I did like the food in this month’s box.

Love With Food June 2014

Love With Food June 2014

A lot of the snacks did remind me of summer, such as the cherries, baked fries and popcorn. My husband and I already ate everything in this month’s box, and I can honestly say there wasn’t a single snack that wasn’t good. My two favorites were probably the popcorn and cherries.

Love With Food June 2014 Information Card

This month’s information card. Always helpful for learning more about each snack, and also about the companies that manufacture them. This month’s box came with 8 snacks, which I thought was a good amount.

Love With Food June 2014 (3)

YumEarth Organics Fruit Snacks

I’ve had these fruit snacks before, but the not the the pineapple, raspberry and mango. These are really good and I also like that they are organic.

Love With Food June 2014 (6)

Gum Balls by Tree Hugger Gum

I liked this gum ball, but I wish they had included more than one as it didn’t last very long. If they had included a few then my husband could have tried one as well.

Love With Food June 2014 (7)

Cheddar Baked Fries by Snikiddy

These were really good, I would buy them again if I saw them in the store. I like that they are baked instead of fried. For being baked, they still had a lot of flavor.

Love With Food June 2014 (2)

Snap Back Cookie by The Cookie Department

I love ginger snap cookies, so I was excited about this one. It is really good! I am not sure what is “detox” about it, but it was a very good cookie overall. Tasted very fresh as well.

Love With Food June 2014 (8)

Chicago Mix by G.H.Cretors

I love both cheddar and caramel popcorn, but I wasn’t sure if I would like them together. I actually just picked out all the caramels and ate them, and then ate the remaining cheddar ones. Still I thought both flavors were great!

Love With Food June 2014 (1)

Montmorency Cherries by Stoneridge Orchards

Cherries are my favorite fruit, so I loved these! I think these would be an especially good snack in the winter when cherries aren’t in season.

Love With Food June 2014 (5)

Good For You Granola by Jolly Oak

I really liked the flavor of this granola, and also that is was non-GMO. This another one I would buy again if I saw it in store.

Love With Food June 2014 (4)

Dolcetto Chocolate Cookies

These were a great tasting chocolate wafer cookie. My husband like this one a lot as well.

~~~

Citrus Lane June 2014 Review

I was surprised to see three packages when I arrived home today. The one I was most excited to see was my Citrus Lane June 2014 box! Claire was also excited to see it, I think she is starting to catch on that sometimes boxes in the mail mean new toys. This box is  for a 17 month old girl.

Citrus Lane June 2014

Citrus Lane June 2014 Box

A few weeks ago Citrus Lane let us pick which wet bag we wanted. I like the feature of picking an item each month, but all of the wet bags were Minnie Mouse themed so I didn’t feel like there was actually a huge choice this time around. I do like Minnie Mouse so it’s no big deal for me.

Here is the Bumkins wet bag I received. I thought this Minnie Mouse print was the cutest of all the prints available to me. I find carrying a wet bag in my diaper bag an absolute must. Great for carrying dirty clothing. I think this would also make a good snack bag.

Hape is one of my favorite toy companies out there. Their toys are all very well made, and I love the old fashioned feel to them. I think the copter we got was very cute, Claire was excited about it and loved spinning the rotor. The wheels make it a good toy to push along the ground as well.

To be honest, when I first saw this book I thought it was a bit creepy that there were holes where the eyes of the animals would be. Claire, however, thought the book was awesome, and spent a while looking at me through the holes in the book. Definitely a fun and interactive book for a toddler.

Although I have a lot of bandages in the cupboard, none are as cute as these. I’ll have to remember to use these next time Claire has an “ouchie”. These also reminded me about Mr. Men and Little Miss, which are cute children’s books I will have to look into introducing to Claire at some point in the future.

Citrus Lane June 2014 (5)

Plum Organics Mighty 4 Snack Bars – $2.00

Claire loves snack bars, and in my opinion Plum is one of the best baby food companies out there.  I know both of these will be eaten within the next day or two.

Citrus Lane June 2014 (7)

Information Card

Also included were a few coupons. I know I will be using the $1.00 off on Plum Organics coupon.

~~~

The total value I got for this month’s box was $35.66. This is a little on the low end based on past boxes, but think the selection was good and all the items will get used.

Citrus Lane May 2014 Review

I have been a bit behind in reviewing my boxes, but before I post some of my old reviews I wanted to post a review for our May 2014 Citrus Lane box. Citrus Lane is still my favorite box, and May was another good month as usual!

Citrus Lane May 2014

Citrus Lane May 2014

For some reason my box didn’t have an information card this month. Not that big of a deal but I do like reading the descriptions of the items included in my box.

Citrus Lane May 2014 (4)

Goodbyn Snack Container

 I have a few containers like this, but I’ve lost some of their lids so it’s always nice to get a new one. This is the perfect size for small snacks like cherrios or blueberries.

Citrus Lane May 2014 (5)

Green Toys Stacking Cups

 Stacking cups are a great water play toy, and I love the designs of these ones. Green Toys is one of my favorite companies. They make a lot of nice products and I feel good about the plastic being recycled.

Citrus Lane May 2014 (1)

Crocodile Creek Ball

Citrus Lane let us pick the design of this ball, so I choose the globe since I liked how it showed native animals of the different continents. This ball seems like it will hold up well and will be good for outdoor play.

Citrus Lane May 2014 (3)

JasmineSeven Fresh Feet Wipes

 This wall the only item I wasn’t too excited about. Wipes are useful, but I don’t see the point of wipes just for feet. To me skin is skin and you should be able to use the same wipes wherever.

Citrus Lane May 2014 (2)

Back to Nature Honey Gram Sticks

I have had these before and liked them, now that Claire is older and has more teeth she may be able to eat them as well.

So overall another nice box. I especially like the stacking cups and ball, so for those alone I feel I got my money’s worth. I signed up when Citrus Lane was last having a sale, so I got a good deal on a 6 month subscription.

Love With Food March 2014 Review

I am late in reviewing my Love With Food box this month, as well as some other boxes. Once we settle down from moving I should have more time for my blog again. Until then my updates may be a bit sparse. We ate all the food in this box already so I can review everything in it. For some of my reviews I haven’t had time to try everything, but not the case this time. Oh except the seasoning, I haven’t figured out how to use that yet.

Love With Food March 2014

Love With Food March 2014 Box

This month’s box had a theme of “Flavor’s of the World” and like suggested, included food from all over the world. The Walkers shortbread cookies are a cookie I have loved for years, I even used my Love With Food points to order more of them. My two other favorite items were probably the pasta chips and the Earl Grey Tea.

Love With Food March 2014 (9)

Flavors of the World

As always Love With Food provided a nice information card with the name and a brief description of all the items included in the box. This month’s box had 8 items, which is average for a Love With Food box.

Love With Food March 2014 (5)

Wai Lana Chips – Sea Salt and Vinegar

I liked the chips themselves but not the flavor I got. I have never liked vinegar as a chip flavor, I find it too overpowering. I wish I would have gotten a different flavor, but what can you do? My husband seemed to like these OK.

Love With Food March 2014 (7)

Shortbread Fingers by Walkers

If you have never tried these before I highly recommend them. I am not even a big fan of shortbread, but these are exceptionally good. Like I mentioned above, I had enough Love With Food points to order these. I can’t wait until they arrive!

Love With Food March 2014 (2)

Taylors Earl Grey Tea

Earl Grey is a flavor of tea that has grown on me over the years. I used to hate it, but now it is one of my favorites. For Earl Grey tea, I found this one to be exceptionally good.

Love With Food March 2014 (8)

Ginger Chews by Chimes

I am not a big fan of ginger so I didn’t try these, but my husband did try them and liked them.

Love With Food March 2014 (1)

Lollipops by Pierrot Gourmand

This lollipop was “milky grenadine” flavored. I couldn’t imagine what that would taste like, but ended up liking it. I wonder what other flavors this company makes? I would be interested in trying some of them.

Love With Food March 2014 (3)

Taco and Burrito Meat Seasoning

I am a vegetarian, so I wasn’t too excited about this one. Even if I wasn’t I am not sure I would use this. I prefer to receive ready to eat food, rather than something I have to cook or use as an ingredient.

Love With Food March 2014 (6)

Pasta Chips by Vintage Italia

These were really good! They are made out of semolina flour, and did have a pasta taste and consistency to them. I love marinara sauce, so the flavor on top of the chips was also a winner.

Love With Food March 2014 (4)

Emmy’s Chai Spice Macaroons

These were good overall. I liked that they were Non-GMO verified and organic. The flavor did taste like chai. My husband especially liked these. I think I would probably buy them again if I saw them in a store.

Citrus Lane March 2014 Review

My March 2014 Citrus Lane box marks the 12th box I have received from Citrus Lane. I am excited that I have been getting their boxes for an entire year now. I have received a lot of great items and learned about a lot of new companies through my monthly boxes with them. As with all their other boxes, I think the March 2014 box had good value and a nice variety.

If you aren’t familiar with Citrus Lane, they are a monthly subscription box for children from age newborn to five years. Each month you get 4-5 items for your child, and sometimes something for Mom as well. The items are always a surprise, and the value is usually significantly above the price you pay. It’s also a fun way to learn about and try new products. The price of a box is between $21 – $25 a month depending on how many months you pay for.

Citrus Lane March 2014

Citrus Lane February 2014 Box – 14 month old girl

Claire turns 14 months this month, and so this a 14 month old girl box. I like that I have been receiving toys and books that she can grow into. This month’s box contained a lot of my favorite things to receive in a kid’s subscription box. It had a nice book, a toy, and baby food. It also came with a useful first aid kit. The one item I wasn’t that excited about was the lotion.

Citrus Lane March 2014 (7)

You Are My Baby Book from Chronicle Books – $8.09

We had the safari version of this book before, but Claire eventually destroyed it. I think the way this book has a big flap and a small flap makes it easier to destroy than a normal book, so I am really hoping this one lasts. The concept is very cute though, the bigger pages show the mommy animal and the smaller pages show the baby animal.

Citrus Lane March 2014 (2)

Push Pull Toy from Hape – $13.99

Hape is another great company I have learned about through subscription boxes. This month Citrus Lane had the option to choose one of the items in your box. We got to pick from a few different animal versions of this push pull toy. I had trouble deciding, but ultimately went with the elephant. All of the options were cute.

Citrus Lane March 2014 (4)

Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion from Weleda – $13.20

To be honest I wasn’t that excited to get another body lotion in this box. I like body lotion, but it takes a long time for me to go through it, and I still have a lot of body lotion we haven’t. I do like the Weleda company for the other products of theirs I have tried, so I am sure we will end up using this eventually.

Citrus Lane March 2014 (1)

Medi Buddy from Me4Kids – $5.99

It never would have occurred to me to get a travel first aid kit, but now that I have one I think it is an incredibly useful item to have and I am glad I received it in my box. It contains various first aid items, and also some stickers. The box is a good size to keep in a diaper bag, or you could also keep it somewhere like the trunk of your car.

Citrus Lane March 2014 (3)

Stage 2 World Baby Pouch from Plum Organics – $1.50

Plum Organics is my favorite baby food company, they make a lot of interesting baby and toddler food, and I love that all of it is organic. I have seen these World Baby pouches in a few different stores, but Claire has never tried this particular flavor. If she likes it I will probably try to pick up a few of the other flavors next time I am at the store.

Citrus Lane March 2014 (5)

Citrus Lane March 2014 Information Card

As usual, a detailed information card was included in the box. The total value I got for this month’s box was $42.59, so it’s definitely a great value considering the box (depending on what deal you get), costs only about half that. If you are interested in trying Citrus Lane you can click here and use the coupon code SAVEHALF to save 50% off your first box.

February 2014 Bluum Box Review

My February 2014 Bluum Box arrived yesterday, and as usual I was excited to see it, as was Claire when I opened it and showed it to her. I think Bluum Box has been doing a good job keeping up the quality of their boxes in recent months. My box this month is for a 13 month old girl.

If you aren’t familiar with Bluum Box, they are monthly subscription box of baby items that costs between $25-$21 a month. If you are interested in finding out more about Bluum Box, you can check out their website here. If you use my link, you can save 50% off your first box.

Bluum Box February 2014

Bluum Box February 2014

Bluum Box sends out an e-mail around the time you are supposed to get your box. Sometimes I read it so I will know what we are getting and sometimes I don’t so we will be surprised. This month I got the e-mail the same day I got the box so I ended up being surprised with what was inside. I thought this month, like recent months, had a nice variety of items.

This bath book and rubber ducky was my favorite item in the box. We only have one other bath book so we can certainly use more. The rubber ducky is also cute. I like when I receive books for Claire in general, and I include bath books in the book category.

Bluum Box February 2014 (1)

Manhattan Toy – Cozies Plush – Grey & White Dog – $12.99

I am usually not overly excited to get a new stuffed animal since I think it is very easy for kids of have tons of them. I would rather get something a little more interesting or unique. That being said this plush is cute and Claire seems to like it.

I like this cream, but I already have a lot of it. It is a nice diaper cream, I just get it in boxes or as a sample frequently, and it takes us a long time to go through it.

Bluum Box February 2014 (2)

Nature’s Bakery – Fig Bar – Whole Wheat Raspberry – $1.25

I haven’t tried this one yet but it definitely looks good and I am almost certain I will like it. It is nice when a little gift is included for Mom, especially when it is food.

Bluum Box February 2014 (4)

Earth Friendly Products – Baby Ecos Stain And Odor Remover – $3.99

I wasn’t that excited about this product since I am not sure I will ever actually use it. Claire’s clothing does get stained, but it seems like just putting it in the washer takes care of the stains most of the time. I will store this away for later and may use it eventually.

~~~

So overall I liked the box. It wasn’t my favorite Bluum Box ever but I still think it was worth the price. The total I got for this month’s box was $39.60, so even if you pay the full $25 it is a good deal. Interested in trying Bluum Box or just learning more?  You can save 50% off your first box by clicking here.

Nibblr Box February 2014 Review PT 2

So I got a second nibblr box this month and I wanted to post a review on it. I am always excited when I get a new nibblr, as that means I will have interesting snacks to eat for the next few days. As usual, I liked the variety included in this box, and thought all the snacks were tasty. This box was kindly provided by nibblr, as always, all opinions are my own.

Nibblr February Pt 2

I like how everything fits so well in the box, the box is small enough to fit in the mail box, which I like, especially in the rainy weather. The box had a nice variety of fruit, nuts and even some chocolate.

If you are not familiar with nibblr, they are a subscription snack box that delivers to your home or office. Each box contains four portioned controlled snacks. You can choose where and how often you want to receive your box. You can customize which snacks you receive by rating which you like on nibblr’s website. The rating options are “love”, “like”, “interested” or “no thanks.” The boxes are $5.99 each, or less if you choose to prepay for either 4 or 12 boxes. If you’re interested in trying nibblr, you can use the code PLUSONE to get your first box for free.

Nibblr February Pt 2 (1)

Coco’s First Date – This one contained almonds, dates and coconut chips. I thought it was a good flavor combination, I especially liked the coconut.

Nibblr February Pt 2 (2)

PB&J – This one is just like the description implies, it tastes like you are eating a PB&J sandwich. It contained grape infused raisins, peanut butter wafers, and peanuts.

Nibblr February Pt 2 (3)

Turtle Twist – This was my favorite of this box. It contained dark chocolate, walnuts and caramel bits. An excellent combination, I especially loved the dark chocolate.

Nibblr February Pt 2 (4)

A, B, C’s - This one contained all dried fruit, which is nice being that it is still Winter and it’s still hard to find decent fruit in the grocery store. It contained apples, cranberries and blueberries. I’ve missed eating blueberries so it was nice to have some.
