LOVE WITH FOOD arrived this week!
This month's theme is Flavors of the World. Each item originates from a different area.
Each box purchased also provides a meal to a hungry child in the US. You give some - you get some!
Made in Hawaii from nutrient-rich cassava, these gluten-free, non-GMO chips contain 30% less fat than regular chips.
I have to admit that I had to look up to see what cassava was. I had not heard of it before. It is also called yuca or tapioca root. I guess it's where tapioca comes from. I used tapioca flour and now this makes sense and I know where it comes from. Cassava is a starch so it makes sense that it would get used like potato here. These will be interesting to try.
This bag is Sea Salt & Vinegar flavor - yum! They also come in Pizza, Barbeque, Lime Chili, Thai Curry & Lime, Swiss Cheese, Herb & Garlic, Natural, Sweet & Sour and French Onion. Wow! That is a lot of different flavors.
PASTA CHIPS BY VINTAGE ITALIA
Pasta chips are made with Durum Wheat Seminola Flour, italian herbs and are baked, not fried.
These are Marinara flavored.
Since these are made with wheat, I will probably only try one and pass them on. Truthfully, it's not something that looks that interesting to me anyway.
A Scottish tradition since 1898. Walker's still uses the same family recipe and just 4 simple, all-natural ingredients.
These also contain wheat, but guess what? I'm going to eat them anyway because I LOVE SHORTBREAD! I have loved shortbread for as long as I can remember and it's something I have a hard time resisting. We can buy this in any store so it would have been cool if they had found something else "Scottish" but maybe not everyone can get it where they live?
TACO & BURRITO SEASONING BY DESERT GARDENS
Head south of the border, and put some kick into your tacos, burritos or nachos with this all-natural spice blend.
I like these spices. I have gotten some other seasonings from this company in other boxes. This will get put to good use. Who doesn't love Mexican food?!
An American classic gets a makeover with organic ingredients and Indian chai spices including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and clove.
Now I love macaroons, but chai spiced ones? I'm not so sure about these, but I definitely will enjoy trying them and see what they taste like. It's hard to top a well done macaroon so I have my doubts, but I have been proven wrong, over and over and over again in my life! There's no reason to think that this time would be any different. The whole reason for getting the box is to try new things, right?
These all-natural lollipops, adored by generations of French children, are the perfect little indulgence for any time of day.
The flavor of this lollipop is Milky Grenadine. What? What would that even taste like? This is something that French children like? This should be interesting. As I've said though, this is why I like these boxes because this is not something I would ever try otherwise. What if it becomes my favorite flavor of all time? I would never had known about it otherwise.
The uniquely intense ginger grown in the Mt. Bromo, Indonesia, gives these candies their signature kick.
I'm not a huge fan of ginger. I've had ginger chews from Trader Joe's and I couldn't eat them. Pretty yucky. I know ginger is supposed to be good to settle your stomach.
The yellow one has a mango flavor, so maybe that one will taste a little better. I will try these just for the adventure but I'm just saying - I will probably not like them! Haha!
EARL GREY TEA BY TAYLORS OF HARROGATE
An English classic from Taylors, an official supplier to the British royal household.
Well earl grey tea isn't too exciting and I would have preferred something more unusual for the English selection - like maybe some Dip Dabs! I'm just saying!!!
Also included, were some coupons for the items found within. Most boxes will include some type of coupon or a discount code to use on the company's web site.
