FatDog Inc Handcrafting Mustard – 9 oz (Full Size!), value: $7
Vance Family Soy Candle in Portland Rose – 2 oz, value: 3.17
I’m not a mustard fan, but I love that this is a full-size product from a small business – this will be gifted!
Candles are something I love to get in boxes. I’m always reluctant to buy them myself, and if I don’t care for the scent they make great gifts! Soy candles are my favorite, and this Portland Rose scent smells very casual and clean. I think it’s my favorite item in this box.
Wooly Beast Designs Magical Forest Shea Butter Soap – sample, value: $1?
YoshiniG Creative Geometric Animal Blank Greeting Card – value: $2.40
The Noble Spice Sweet Black Masala – 1.2 oz sample – value: ?
I smelled this spice mix as soon as I opened my box. It would have been helpful for the attached informational card to give a hint about what it should be used with, but once I went online and realized the box was BBQ themed, I figured it should be used for BBQ/grilling.
Verdict: Overall, I really liked this Tique Box. Local boxes are one of my favorite categories of subscription boxes. The value comes out to about $18, which I can’t say I’m happy with. I like the concept and the products, but I feel like they could do so much more for $30 or $34/month.
