This month’s theme is Back To School. “Fall is our favorite time of year [here] at My Texas Market, so get ready for a full celebration of the fall season, starting with September and the beginning of a new school year. This box includes a fun mix of local goodies for studying and snack time, for fueling busy mornings and de-stressing from long days. And even if school isn’t on your calendar, you can still enjoy everything in this box. Enjoy!”
Sasha’s Hand Poured Hand Sanitizer Spray – Value $4.50
This hand sanitizer is designed to be sprayed onto the hands and then rubbed in. The scent I received is lavender and it definitely smells of lavender and alcohol. I really like the formulation – it’s not too drying! I think I would prefer a different scent, though.
Sweet Design Thyme “Inspired” Bookmark – Value $12.00
This bookmark is made from the stem of a vintage silver flatware piece. The text was engraved on, and the top piece is folded over to keep your spot in your book!
Here is the bookmark in action (on one of my new, favorite cookbooks). I really like this bookmark – it’s very cute and vintage looking. I will likely use it for cookbooks since I use my Kindle for other reading.
Kitchun You’re the Apple of my Chai No-Grain-Ola – Value $3.00
This granola has a host of healthful, nutritious ingredients. It is grain free, gluten free, soy free, and dairy free. The flavor is great – very autumnal!
Kitchun Holy-Coco-Cacao No-Grain-Ola – Value $3.00
This is also grain, gluten, soy, and dairy free. It has vegan chocolate in it, along with a host of good for you ingredients. The flavor of this was a little less enjoyable for me.
Goddess of the Sea Bath Soak by Sam Wish – Value $10.00
If you ever wanted to be a mermaid this is the bath salt for you. It has spirulina to turn your bath water blue and calendula flowers to float along the top of your bath water as the Epson salt dissolves. It has a few essential oils mixed in for scent and health benefits. I enjoyed using this – baths are a rare treat and a new product is a nice excuse to relax for a bit!
Whole Note GF – Create-A-Muffin Mix – Value $3.00
This mix is gluten free and has 14 grams of whole grain in each muffin. It is easy to use – just add two eggs, milk, and oil, along with your chosen muffin flavorings.
I opted for pumpkin spice muffins (I know…so basic) so I added 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, about 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and a dash of vanilla.
From start to finish, this took maybe 30 minutes. 5 minutes to mix and 25 to bake! Once they came out of the oven, I showered them with powdered sugar and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. They were really good. I do not eat gluten-free as a rule and I couldn’t even tell these were gluten-free. They were delicious!
Verdict: My Texas Market puts out one of the best-curated boxes each month. They stick to their themes, include high-quality products, and always meet the box value. They only ever promise $35.00 value and they consistently hit that amount or above (this month’s value totaled $35.50). I love a good, consistent box, don’t you?
