Before I attended my first Blogher conference earlier this month, I was under the impression that I’d be networking with an assortment of brands and bringing home tons of swag.
But when I arrived and looked over the list of roughly 100 sponsors, there were exactly two that piqued my interest.
One was Hot Wheels, in honor of my son who has been fascinated with little cars since birth, and the other was Love with Food.
What’s not to love?
Love with Food is a subscription service that sends you a box of unique gourmet foods every month. Each box is priced at ten dollars and you can subscribe for one, three, six or twelve months. Here is what the August box contained:
Skinny Dipping Pretzels, Key Lime with Ginger Mustard, Vegan Lemon Cookie, Vegan Peanut Buter Cookie, Dried Montmorency Cherries, Coconut Toffee Peanuts, Ginger Caramel Candy, Tangerine Glee Gum, and love, of course.
The cool thing is, for every box purchased a meal is donated to help end child hunger. To date, Love with Food has donated over 8,000 meals!
When I received a complimentary August box, I brainstormed many ideas for how to enjoy it and most of them involved giving it as a gift. Throughout the year I am always looking for reasonably-priced gifts that I can give as thank yous, get well soons, and just becauses. Especially with the holiday season fast approaching, I think these boxes would make a great gift for foodies, teachers, in-laws, neighbors, and folks that you have no idea what to get. And the best part is that every purchase supports a good cause, so it’s a win-win all around.
I ended up throwing our box in my backpack to enjoy on a family hike. With thirteen of us crowded around the picnic table, everything disappeared from the box quickly, but not mindlessly. We all stopped to really taste and appreciate each product. My personal faves were the pretzels dipped in mustard and the vegan lemon cookie. Now I can go back to Love with Food’s website and order full-size versions of the products I liked.
