This month the state is Michigan! Discover Our America included a guide book of sorts for the Great Lake State, and included items that are all made in Michigan.
This caramel corn is really good. It’s made ‘the old fashioned way,’ but I don’t think I would know the difference since I’m not a connoisseur – I just know it tastes great. I love that Discover Our America found a few items from Detroit!
Martha’s Fudge Sea Salt Taffy – $2.80
This is really good taffy. For some reason, I’ve been getting a lot of taffy in boxes lately! I used to eat taffy a lot as a kid, but it isn’t something I buy as an adult, so it’s nice to get it every now and again! This taffy is chewy, and super flavorful – perfect.
Faygo Rock and Rye Soda – $0.50
This is like a blast from the past. I spent a summer in Edmonton with some friends when I was 16, and they had red cream soda – I never really found anything similar to it when I got home, but I always remembered it! This is exactly like it! It tastes a bit like cherry bubblegum and cream soda. I wouldn’t drink it every day, but it’s a nice treat every now and again!
This was quite good! I made this cold brew style – the cheater way, in my french press. I’ve been drinking it in the mornings with some almond milk and simple syrup and it’s really good! This is a lighter roast coffee, which I enjoy!
Cherry Republic Wild Cherry Tea – $4.31
This tea was delicious! It is a black tea with cherry infusion and it was great with a bit of cream and sugar. I always add cream to my black tea – it’s just better! This tea comes in a small container that seals that is perfect for traveling – I’m definitely going to reuse the container when I’ve used all the tea.
Sanders Sea Salt Caramel Bar – $0.70
I’ve received these before in subscription boxes, and I always love them. They’re absolutely delicious. Sea salt caramel with chocolate is my absolute favorite, so of course, I loved this.
Zingerman’s What the Fudge? Bar – $6.00
This candy bar has a layer of milk chocolate fudge, muscovado caramel, and malted milk cream fondant. To be absolutely honest, it was a bit too sweet for me, but I can tell it is made from high quality ingredients. I think most milk chocolate fans would love this one!
Verdict: I won’t beat around the bush here: the value of this box is $22.99, which is well below the cost of the box. I love the idea of this box, and I think they are off to a good start with the items curated for this month. I hope they are able to raise the value in the coming months, since that is an important piece of getting new subscribers and the success of the box!
I think this box would be a lot of fun to get every month and learn about one of the 50 states with school aged children! Each month you’ll get a new state to learn about, with treats to sweeten the deal.
