Ugh... I really really need to get out in my yard and do some landscaping. I want to, need to do it, but it's just so freaking hot! On top of that, the mosquitos and wasps are god awful and I'm terrified of stepping on a snake. In other words, I am not an outdoor person. I do like my yard to look nice though and the trees that line my driveway are in desperate need of trimming. Perhaps I can drag my butt outside once this ridiculous heatwave breaks. Until then, I occupy myself with boxes like My Texas Market.
My Texas Market, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a Texas based artisan subscription service. The cost is $35 per month (save 25% off your first box with coupon code MAIL25) and includes an array of products from vendors and small businesses throughout Texas. It's like the best of a southern farmers market carefully tucked into a box!
Ok, so, I am ridiculously excited by this first look. I see sweets! Lots and lots of delicious sweets.... Yum!
July's theme is How Sweer It Is and that's super appropriate considering that this is their 1st 'birthday' box. The information card gives you details on each item featured in this month's box.
EcoBabe Cupcake Candle --- This is the only non edible item in the box this month but it is cupcake scented! This is a brand new scent to their line of natural soy wax candles. They're infused with a natural fragrence blend of essential oils and are free of any animal byproducts.
Blue Heron Farm Goat Milk Caramel --- Oh sweet lord... Can I just dive into a vat of this gooey goodness?! I'm serious... It's that amazing. The is a creamy caramel made from goats milk and it's fabulous on apple slices. The company is a small scale, humane, and thoughtful goat dairy farm. They pride themselves on running a profitable farm while treating the land, animals, and people working there with dignity and respect.
Bona Dea Outrageous Oat Cookie Mix --- Yeah, I need to bake these immediately! This mix is free from gluten, dairy, eggs and nuts so it's allergy friendly. It's a great base mix that you can add lots of little extras to. I'm thinking of drizzling some of the caramel into mine!
EMZ Jamz Peach Jam --- Oh! Peach jam! Made in Austin using all local ingredients, this sweet peach flavor is really delicious. I fully intend on adding it to some toast at breakfast.
Cornucopia Popcorn Patriot Pop --- I'm dead... The perfection has killed me. I mean, HOLY CRAP!! This is one of the most amazing things I have ever eaten and I need more... Lots more! It's candied! A mix of white sweet corn, cherry, and blue Rasberry flavors, the level of deliciousness here is indescribable.
No doubt about it, this is my favorite My Texas Market box ever. I love all of it but the popcorn and the caramel put it over the top. I don't think I've ever gotten anything in a subscription box that was half as scrumptious and mouth watering as those two items.
