Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – November 2014 Info

This month the Destination is Seattle. The card included details each of the Seattle vendors included i the box.

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – November 2014 Bamboo

Herbivore Botanicals Bamboo Charcoal Soap in Tea Tree + Bergamot – Value $9

Red Leaf Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Body Wash – Value $8

I’ve used this soap before and absolutely love the natural scent. I’m not sure I’m loving the body wash fragrance though.

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – November 2014 Apples

J Co Co Vanuatu Coconut Pecan Origin Milk Chocolate Bar – Value $8

Simple & Crisp Apple Artisanal Dried Fruit Crisps – Value $5

This J CoCo chocolate bar sounds amazing (and it reminds me of Mean Girls and Glen Coco, so that’s always good). I can’t eat dairy but I’m sure my husband will love it.

These Simple & Crisp crackers are just dried apple chips in perfect form (AKA no little pieces). I’ve tried these before with oranges, and I think the apple crackers are my favorite. (They recommend pairing them with everything from wine, to cheese, to caramel).

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – November 2014 Salted Caramel

Lake Champlain Chocolates Salted Caramel Organic Chocolate Bar – Value $5

This bar was a bonus item not listed on the card since it is not from Seattle! (Made in Vermont). I’m sure most people would not complain about getting 2 chocolate bars in one box. (They’ll make good stocking stuffers!)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $35. That’s $5 more than what I paid, and what I’ve come to expect from Hammock Pack. (They typically send a value just over the cost). This box is more about curation for me, so I’m OK not getting a high value box from them. For me personally I couldn’t eat 2 of the items in the box, so this wasn’t my favorite Hammock Pack, but I still think it is a good one. What do you think of the November Hammock Pack?

  1. As someone who lives in Seattle these are not at all what I would have chosen for a Seattle box. C’mon! No coffee? No Theo?

    • Are you talking about Theo chocolate? That is amazing chocolate. It is the highlight of the Mother Earth News fair for my boys. They come every year with lots of samples and we always end up buying lots of chocolate. Yummy!

      I can buy it at Whole Foods if I want, but for some reason it tastes better at the Mother Earth News fair.

    • Right??? I’m from Seattle too and I don’t think this box captures the area very well at all. Two chocolate bars, and neither is Theo? Crazy.

  2. Liz, thanks for notating how the subscription is shipped. That is very useful information for those who have ‘difficulties’ with certain deliverers.

  3. Being a resident from VT I immediately saw the candy bar and got offended that it was in a Seattle box. I’m glad they didn’t actually list it as a Seattle item.

    Is that a hint as to the theme for next month’s box or is it just a bonus item?

    • I know, right?! I’m not from Vermont but I am from the east coast. We have tons of Lake Champlain chocolates in my local market so I was pretty confused. If it is a hint for next month’s box, than that is pretty cool. Hopefully it is because that makes the most sense!
