Here is the welcome letter from the creators, Josh & Brent. This month’s box is “a taste of spring”. According to the letter they eat a lot of salads this time of year, so the box revolves around salads. I’m a salad lover myself so this is a good fit for me.
I’m a vinegar fan so I was happy to see this! The recipe card recommends using it to make Josh’s favorite Honey Mustard, so I’m going to try that out first. I’ve never had an apple rosemary vinegar before so I’m curious to see how the mustard will end up tasting.
According to the website this is one of their bestsellers & has been featured in Country Living. I love how the bottle has a vintage feel. I made a salad the same day I received this box just to taste it, and unfortunately I didn’t like it on the salad as much as I had hoped I would. It was delicious just not the bomb. However, I’m going to try it on ice cream next time (per suggestion from creators) and also try it with cheeses.
One of the things I love about this box is the recipe card they include. I like having suggestions on how to use some of the products given.
I love honey & can never have enough, so I’m always happy to receive more. The website says this honey was featured in “Hot Honey” in People Magazine and I can see why because it is delicious! Thanks to this sub, this brand is in my top favs for honey. Right now it’s out of stock on the website so other people must like it a lot too.
I’ve yet to meet a ranch I don’t like, but this was one of the best ones I’ve had! It had a slightly different taste but was so good. Ranch goes fast in my house so we’ve already used the majority of the bottle! I think the goat milk is what sets it apart from normal bottled ranch.
Beekman 1802 Heirloom Garden Seeds – $17.75
I thought this was a great addition to the box! It’s unexpected but a very nice surprise. I really like the designs on the seed packets! They are almost too pretty to throw away. The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Garden Seed pack includes: Mortgage Lifter Tomato, French Breakfast Radish, Heirloom Lettuce Mix, Scarlet Nantes Carrot and Chioggia Beet.

Verdict: I really liked this month’s Beekman Specialty Food Club box! I truly enjoyed every product given and the heirloom garden seed pack was a great surprise bonus! I estimate the cost of this box to be $59.70. That’s higher than the purchase cost & higher than last month’s box value. However, I’m not sure who would spend that much on seeds although the artwork is beautiful. Overall I was pleased with this month’s box and will use every product so I’m happy! Now that the box value is rising I would definitely recommend this to any food lover.
