This month is Gulf Coast Summer: “This box is inspired by sun, sand, and the 600 miles of gulf coast that line the Lone Star State. As we say goodbye to summer, we hope this box inspires you to go out and soak up the sun just a little longer. Enjoy!”

Sweet Home Bath and Body, Foot Scrubby – $10.00

This is a loofah that is dipped in a homemade soap from Sweet Home. They describe it as “We create our foot scubbies by dipping Texas-farmed, natural loofah in our very own handcrafted soap. Formulated with nourishing cocoa butter and skin softening oils along with rhassoul & sea clays, this specially formulated soap includes our proprietary blend of peppermint, eucalyptus & tea tree essential oils plus menthol crystals…this natural foot scrubby packs a punch! Perfect for cleaning, exfoliating & reviving those overworked tootsies.”

Dallas Caramel Co., Sea Salt Caramels and Texas Drunken Nut Caramels – $7.50

I received 4 ounces of sea salt and Texas drunken nut caramels. I’ve tried Dallas Caramel Co.’s Armadillos thanks to Treatsie, and these caramels were soooooo good. They are everything that caramels should be – sweet, buttery, chewy, and absolutely delicious. 

TM7

The Food Scrubby has a little rope on it that makes it handy to keep in the shower. I will note that the first time I used it, the soap was a bit too thick to get any kind of exfoliation, but I think it will wear down and work very well!

TM8

Salve Naturals – Refresh Hydrating Mist – $9.99

I love refreshing hydrating mists; they’re perfect for cooling down, or adding an extra shot of moisture during the day. 

TM9

This isn’t my favorite (for my face) that I’ve tried, just because of the high content of mint in the spritz. My face did burn a bit after using it. I think this would be a great foot spray after a long day on your feet – it would be invigorating and feel great!

TM10

TM11

Yellowbird Sauce – Jalepeno – $11.99

This is a massive bottle of hot sauce. It’s 19.6 ounces! With that said, I really love the flavor, and think it would go great with pretty much anything. It was the perfect condiment to ship with the fish fry above though! I mixed a bit of it with sour cream and used it as a dipping sauce for my fried veggies!

South Texas Milling – Gulf Coast Fish Fry – $6.00

This fish fry mix is made with stone ground corn meal. It is seasoned with red pepper, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, and dried mustard. Since I don’t eat fish, I used this on a mixture of zucchini, mushrooms, and green tomatoes. It was really, really delicious! I usually don’t fry food because it’s mostly spectacularly bad for you, but it was perfect for my cheat meal. The green heirloom tomato was my favorite!

Verdict: This month of My Texas Market is valued at about $45.48. As usual, I enjoyed all of the items that My Texas Market included – they always curate the best boxes for their themes, and all of the items are high quality and fun. I really loved the caramels this month – but that’s not surprising – I just love sweets!

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. As a Texan myself, this box checks out!

  2. Great review, Bekki!

    • Thanks Chris!

  3. Thanks for the rec. on the mist. Never thought of this. Great idea. And I thought that the other suggestions you offered for the other items were very good and useful to me. I have been a subscriber with Texas Market for a while and have really enjoyed their curation.

    • My Texas Market is honestly one of my favorites! I look forward to it every month for sure.
