This month the destination is Georgia!
Loose Sugar Bakery – Praline – $2.50
Loose Sugar Bakery is based out of Harrison, Georgia. What says the South more than pecan pralines? Not much!
I am going to preface this by saying: I’m not a pecan person. The only nuts I like are cashews and pistachios and one of those doesn’t even belong to the nut family. With that said, this was an excellent pecan praline. The praline part was so delicious and flavorful – it reminds me of my Grandma’s pecan pralines!
Bacon’s Heir is a company that specializes in Chicharrónes or fried pork skin. They are a Georgia based company and have had their products in multiple subscription boxes lately! I’ve received these exact pork rinds before, since I don’t eat meat, I pass these along to my friends and they rave about them!
This Atlanta based company partners with an organization that provides jobs for women exiting the sex trafficking trade in Atlanta and produces all vegan and cruelty free products. These bath salts smell amazing – it’s not a sweet smell but a medicinal flowery smell. I am doing a terrible job describing this, but I really like the smell! This sea salt soak also has hibiscus petals and essential oils in it and it is a massive size. This will last me a long time!
This company is based out of Decatur, GA and the owner has been on Shark Tank with her product. At first glance, the process for making these pancakes is a little more labor intensive than normal pancakes – you have to separate the eggs. I hate separating eggs, so I went with the vegan recipe! I used cashew milk and oil to make my waffle. It came out really nice texturally, but the flavor was very faint. I think while eating my whole waffle I caught two hints of salted pecan and no bourbon flavoring. Still, it was a good waffle and these would be cute to put in a gift basket for a housewarming party!
Emily G’s Peach Marmalade – $1.50
Emily G’s is based in Dunwoody, GA and started with four jam flavors at a farmer’s market in 2008. I’ve only ever tried orange marmalade, so I was excited to try peach marmalade. I really enjoyed this on toast and I think it would be excellent with a cheese plate as well!
Verdict: This Hammock Pack has a value of about $31.00. That’s right under the cost of the box plus shipping, so I am happy with that value. This was my first month to get Hammock Pack and I really enjoyed my first box! All of the companies were based in The Peach State and they even included a peach jam – because you can’t have a Georgia box without peaches!
