Every New England Sack box comes with a wax-sealed, folded information card that lists each item and offer details about the companies and location where each item is produced.
This is a set of 5 photography note cards, featuring New England in Autumn! I think this packaging is so nice. (See below for photo of the actual cards!)
These are the cards, unwrapped.
Couture’s Maple Shop Pure Maple Syrup 3.4 fl oz, value: $3
Amelia’s Chowda Shack Clam Chowda Mix – 6 oz, value: $7.95
I love “real” maple syrup. It’s generally more flavorful and less goopy than super-processed syrup. My parents absolutely love this brand and it’s what my family has used for years!
Clam Chowder is one of my favorites. Especially in this colder season, soups are popular in my house. I really like soup mixes, too – they take half the work out of the process!
Couture’s Maple Shop Pure Maple Candy value: $.35
The Primitive Home Wooden Sign – value: $9.99?
This sign was designed exclusively for the New England Sack and isn’t listed on the Primitive Home’s site, so I guesstimated the value from similar signs by them. I think it’s cute, and makes such a nice hostess gift to bring with you to a family Thanksgiving dinner!
The maple candy was promptly eaten after photos were taken! It was great and made by the same people who make the syrup.
New England Cranberry Colonial Cranberry Sauce – 12 oz, value: $6.99
Kenyon’s Old Fashioned Apples & Spice Pancake Mix – 20 oz, value: $6.82
Cranberry sauce is essential for holiday meals, and I’m always happy to have some that isn’t canned.
You have no idea how excited I was when I saw this pancake mix in my box. Pancakes are my family’s tradition for family breakfasts or holiday mornings – plus, I can use the syrup that was also in the box!
Verdict: I loved this New England Sack box! Every item (save for the maple candy) is a full/purchasable size, and definitely fits well into its Autumn in New England theme! Plus, I know I’ll use everything in the box. The value comes out to $49.10, which I’m definitely happy with.
