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!)

New England Sack Subscription Box Review - Nov 2014 Chowda

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 Sack Subscription Box Review - Nov 2014 Sauce

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.

  1. Thanks for reviewing this box! I missed out on it but was able to get the December box- posted pics to my site- and I loved it so much that I went in for the six month subscription! I love that all the items are from small businesses/entrepreneurs. I also felt like they put a ton of care/effort into the packaging and experience. The stamped sack, the wax-sealed item list, etc. Can’t wait to see what the next few boxes will be like!

  2. My December holiday sack is arriving on Monday. I can’t wait to see it. I’m hoping for some delicious treats and a nice decoration.

  3. No pressure, but could you please add this to the MSA Subscription Box List. I’d like to add it to my Wish List.

    As for my thoughts on the future of this box, I hope they stick to mostly food. Some paper products (like cards, napkins, prints…) or accessories (like socks, a scarf…) would be fine, as long as I still got some food items. NE food is the hardest thing for me to find in my area. Just regional differences I guess (I’m in the mid-Atlantic region).

    I’m not a fan of the plaque. It’s cute but it’s something I could find anywhere.

  4. I signed up for this at a discount for the 3 month plan before it launched. The owner made sure that we received our sacks in time for Thanksgiving which I thought was nice. My sack arrived on November 13th. There is an item representing each NE state which I thought was a great way to debut the box.

    The maple syrup is Grade A Amber. The maple candy was eaten right away 🙂 The cranberry sauce has very few ingredients in it. I hung the wooden sign in my dining room which is painted a golden yellow. It looks great there. The cards are gorgeous.

    I think New England Sack did a wonderful job in selecting items. It was nice to receive items related to Thanksgiving. I also like the pairing of the pancake mix and syrup.

    Don’t wait to order the Holiday sack! They gave out vague hints on Facebook and it looks like a great box. I can’t wait to receive it!

  5. I thought this looked like a good representation of NE. I would save that sack to pack my shoes in my suitcase when travelling!

  6. This box looks great! Right up my alley, I love locally made things, whenever I go on vacation my souvenirs are always locally made things I can’t get at home.
