Llwynog Says:

I was a little worried when I got an email from Love With Food about Andew Zimmern curating this month’s box and the theme was “Weird, Wild, & Wonderful Foods”. I was a bit nervous I’d end up with dried squid snacks and chocolate covered grasshoppers, which I probably would have tried, but might not have enjoyed. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find instead an interesting array of items that all sound tasty.

I haven’t tried everything yet, but of course I went for the caramels first. Or “cocomels”, rather. These are dairy-free, made with coconut milk, which gives them such an interesting flavor and texture. Definitely my favorite thing in the box.

I also snacked on the Salt and Pepper nuggets.

They’re a bit like a sunflower seed cracker. The flavor is really nice, transitioning from salty, to peppery, to garlic-y. They’re a bit dry on their own, but I think they’d be pretty tasty dipped into hummus or something.

I’m planning to take the packaging suggestion and rub the fennel pollen on pork chops this week. It made my whole box smell amazing.

This month, Love with Food contributed a meal via Open Arms of Minnesota for each box purchased.
