This month the destination is Maryland!
When I think of Maryland I think of the sea! This box reinforced that for me, and I loved it! My Dad was born and raised in Maryland so it definitely has a special place in my heart.
This bar of soap came wrapped in a little muslin sack, perfect for gifting. It has “Soothing oatmeal, honey, and the added benefit of anti-bacterial cinnamon essential oil” in the soap, and I think it smells amazing. When I used it, I found that it was very moisturizing and not drying like standard bar soap.
I could not stop smelling my hands after using this. The consistency of the lotion is very light, almost whipped, but it doesn’t feel heavy or cloying. It goes on really smoothly, and hydrates for quite a while. I can’t quite place the scent, but I would guess that the scent comes from the jojoba in the lotion. They describe it as sea water, salt air, and driftwood for the scent, but I don’t catch those notes at all.
Here’s a closer look at the soap and the lotion – they make the perfect pair!
This taffy is Neapolitan flavored: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. I found that the consistency was very chewy – but not hard – it is exactly what taffy should be. I enjoyed each flavor, but definitely preferred the strawberry.
Fisher’s Popcorn – Caramel Popcorn with Crab Seasoning – Value $4.25
When I first saw that this had crab seasoning on it, I was a bit weirded out. I tried it though, and didn’t really get more flavor than just a salted caramel, which was great. I enjoyed the flavor of the caramel, mixed with the crunchiness of the popcorn. This is caramel popcorn done right!
Annapolis Candle – Bay Breeze – $8.00
This candle smells amazing. It is exactly what you imagine a bay breeze would smell like – fresh, brisk, and clean. This is definitely one of my favorite items in the box, second only to the saltwater lotion! This is a clean burning, soy candle.
Verdict: The value of this Hammock Pack is about $35.24, right over the cost of the box. I really enjoyed all of the items included and think that the value of this box is reasonably good; you’re definitely getting your money back. The saltwater lotion and bay breeze candle were definitely the highlights for me – they both smell so great.
Are you from Maryland? Do you think this Hammock Pack did your state justice? I definitely loved it!
