Bourbon and Boots Subscription Box Review – July 2013
A few weeks ago, My Subscription Addiction reader Brittany alerted me to a new subscription box from Bourbon and Boots – and of course I had to try it!
The Box: Bourbon & Boots Box
The Cost: $42 a month
COUPON: Use coupon code THANKS2013 to save 5% on any subscription plan.
The Products: These boxes will be filled with only the things hand-selected by the Bourbon & Boots staff.
Woody’s Mild Bar-B-Q Sauce – Value $8
McClard’s Bar-B-Q Sauce – Value $7
TIP’S Dry Barbecue Sauce – Value $6? (I couldn’t find this anywhere online).
While I would have liked to see a little more variety of items in this box, I’m sure if these are the BBQ sauces Bourbon and Boots selected for the box, they must be amazing. We’re excited to try all of them! (Apparently, the dry sauce isn’t sweet and syrupy like a typical BBQ sauce).
Never Trust a Big Butt and a Smile Pork Print – Value $20
Sadly, this item arrived a little bent (maybe i can flatten it out). I’m not sure if this print is for me, but I definitely like some of the other prints from the Drywell shop!
Verdict: I signed up for the 3-month subscription and used the 5% off coupon, so I paid $39.27 for this box. The total value of this box is about $41 (not sure if I got the price right now the TIP’S dry BBQ sauce). I would love to see a little higher value from this box in the next two months of my subscription. Oh, and I hope they start to include a card on why they selected each item for the box! Did you get the first Bourbon and Boots box? What did you think?
UPDATE: Looks like I missed this email, but it sounds like Bourbon and Boots will be sending out an additional item or two for the July box. Here’s a screen shot of the email I received on August 2nd (Subject line: July Bourbon & Boots Box Update):
I’ll let you know when I find out more!
UPDATE 2: The July Box addition arrived on August 22nd:
The additional item for the July Box was this set of 2 Napkins from Oh Little Rabbit (Value $10). These are printed on organic cotton, and really well made. Here’s a better look:
I’m really happy with this extra item for the July box. Now I just want the August box to show up soon!
