Little Seed Farm – Farmstead Milk Soap (Grapefruit Lemon), 4.7 oz. – Value $7.00

As soon as I saw this artisanal packaging and that adorable goat, I knew this would be amazing soap. This soap is all natural and smells so refreshing. I washed my face with it and it was super soft, had a nice lather, and rinsed off completely leaving no residue behind. Clearly, I take my soap seriously. Highly recommend!

Soberdough Brew Bread Mix – Honey Wheat – Value $8.95

This bread was just slightly sweet and light. I don’t like a super dense bread so this was definitely a good match for me. This would be delicious toasted with jam or with this peanut butter (or both).

Nut Butter Nation – Honey Vanilla Peanut Butter, 12 oz. – Value $4.00

This peanut butter is delicious and just has a hint of vanilla/honey. It’s sweet, but not too sweet and also not super peanut tasting as well. I spread it on a piece of my freshly made Soberdough bread and that was such a great combination.

The Nashville Jam Co. – Peach Salsa, 16 oz. – Value $6.95

I really liked this salsa. I wasn’t sure about it because I am just not someone who likes a fruity salsa (i.e. mango). However, this was very mildly peach and still had that spicy kick to it.

Willa’s Shortbread Cookies – Butter Pecan – Value $6.00

Shortbread cookies already happen to be one of my favorite kinds of cookies, so I was obviously pleased to see these gems in my box. They are little bitty cookies which is actually nice because you can have several and not feel as guilty about it! These are perfect to have with coffee or tea for breakfast or an after dinner sweet snack. So good!

Nicoletto’s Pasta Co. – Rigatoni, 16 oz. – Value $6.99

As far as pasta goes, this one was pretty on par with the ones I usually use. It cooked fast, though admittedly I did overcook it because it did fall apart a little. Totally my fault for walking away. Too impatient to wait!

Nonna’s Marinara Sauce, 16 fl oz. – Value $8.00

Okay, I am not one to get overly excited about much, but let me tell you about this amazing sauce. I am from an Italian family and my mom happens to make incredibly good spaghetti sauce, but this sauce is pretty close on my scale right now. Typically, I am not a fan of the jarred sauces you can buy in the grocery store, but this Nashville local is far from what you would find in the store. I cooked it on the stovetop and poured it over this Nicoletto’s pasta which was quite good. Yummy!

Trubee Barrel-Aged Honey, 7.5 oz. – Value $14.00

I am by no means a honey connoisseur, but this one is really really tasty. It had a slight floral taste, not too overbearing, but I could get a sense of the whiskey. This honey would be really nice in a hot toddy in the fall or drizzled over some really delicious vanilla gelato.

Everly Pomegranate Berry Hydration Mix, 2.1 oz. – Value $12.50

This drink mix was pretty good, though I think I could have put more in my water. I don’t particularly like sugar-free mixes, but as far as they go, this one was good. I also happen to really like most things that are berry and/or pomegranate flavored. Next time though, more powder!

Batch Flour Sack Towel – Value $10.00

This towel is very big for a kitchen towel and has a super cute floral print on it. It’s thin, so I wouldn’t necessarily use it to dry anything, but it would be nice to dry hands. Overall, cute!

Verdict: The approximate value of this month’s Batch Family Deluxe box is $90, the actual cost is $99. Regardless of the monetary value, I think given how excellent all of these products are and how highly I would rate them, it was worth it. The packaging, products, and uniqueness of the box make this a great choice if you are looking for something special to gift yourself or someone special.

What do you think of the latest Family Deluxe box from Batch?

  1. Welcome aboard Chelsey! I use to make a basic but good spaghetti sauce. So I may have to look into this box based on your description.

  2. Really nice looking box but the price is to high. I checked out their website to buy a few things and the shipping is more than the items i wanted. I live in NC , so its not like its traveling across the country.

  3. I didn’t know Batch was still around! I subbed to a few boxes when it came out and it was alright the value wasn’t great. I LIVE for Willa’s Shortbread though, it’s amazing!! And this would be a nice box at a lower price point. $99 is very steep.
