This month, the theme is Backyard Barbecue:  “Time to fire up the grill and take the party outside.  This is the perfect time of year for sunshine, sweet tea, and good times with the ones you love.  Enjoy!”


Kellie’s Baking Co., Mason Jar Brookie – $5.00?

I could not find this exact item on Kellie’s Baking Co. website, so I’m guessing as far as value goes.  (There’s a picture of this open below.)  The top has marshmallows, and then the bottom is a mix between a brownie and a cookie.  It was really good, but I think it would have been better warmed up!  They mention that this should be eaten right away, so make sure to eat yours if you haven’t already!

Spaulding’s Specialty Spices, Smoke on the Barbie Rub – $8.00?

This spice rub has sea salt, smoked sea salt, smoked paprika, garlic, basil, thyme, onion and black pepper in it.  It smells amazing, and tastes great sprinkled on top of my avocado toast.  I realize that’s not the intended use, but I don’t BBQ often!  We’re having an unseasonably cold spring, so I don’t even know when I’ll be able to use my grill without being drenched.  



White Cloud World Teas – Peach Paradise Tea – $6.95

This tea smells amazing.  It has peach, apple, hibiscus, elderberries, rosehip peel, passionfruit, and sunflower in it.  The tea once brewed was really flavorful, and sweet without added sugar (I still added some, who do you think I am?!).  I really enjoyed this tea!  This is 2 ounces, and should make quite a few pots for me!

Larry’s Bag of Smoke, Hickory Smoke Bag – $5.95

This little bag is meant to be soaked and then placed on your BBQ to flavor whatever you’re cooking like hickory smoke.  These are handmade in Katy, Texas, from fallen branches along Larry’s property.  It smells great, and I can’t wait to be able to put it to use this summer.  With all of our rain, I would look like a drowned rat trying to use it right now!


Benjamin Soap Co., Bug Repellent – $6.67

This bug repellent is made with cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut and castor oil, citronella, clove oil, peppermint oil and eucalyptus oil.  It smells like a citronella candle, to be quite honest – which probably means it is effective at warding off bugs!  This is a perfect item to throw into a BBQ box, because what is a bigger irritating than mosquitos eating you, while you’re trying to eat?

Stellar Gourmet Foods, Texas Triple Threat Mustard – $6.99

This is really interesting!  The mustard has grapefruit, habanero, and tequila in it.  Avocado toast is my go-to food right now, so I went ahead and used this instead of my normal green peppercorn dijon.  It was really good – the slight sweetness from the honey and grapefruit contrasted nicely with the habanero!  It isn’t something I would use every day, but I’m happy to have it!

Verdict:  This month of My Texas Market was really fun!  I love how they always stick to their themes really well, and barbecue is always a good theme for heading in to summer!  The value of this box is going to be a guess, since I had to estimate on two of the items, but I came up with $39.56.  That is pretty standard for My Texas Market – they don’t promise a high value, but they promise to always meet the cost of the box, and I’ve found that to be true every month!  

Did you receive My Texas Market this month?

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. I received my dessert jar with no labels on it. I would have no idea what it is except for the product card. I can’t decide if I should eat something without a label on it?! I haven’t opened it yet, but I’m glad to know what it’s supposed to look like!

  2. Seriously, what is with marshmallows these days? They are turning up everywhere. They are like the next bacon or something. I have been lucky to avoid them thus far (they are not vegetarian).

    • I know! I can’t eat them either, but luckily I’ve only gotten them once (PSMH resort) and I was able to swap them.
      Hopefully the marshmallow thing fades soon… but then again, who knows what will be the next “it food”

    • I’m a vegetarian too. Just wondering if any others here have received vegan marshmallows in any box? I haven’t, and I’m curious to try some. Also, has anyone tried Dandies marshmallows? They’re vegan. I’ve seen them at Whole Foods, but haven’t had them yet.

      • Dandies are awesome. I’ve been using them for years.

        They do not melt as well as regular marshmallows. You can make Rice Krispie treats with them but it will take a bit more effort. They don’t really melt in your hot chocolate, either. But they are great for roasting (which I do on bamboo skewers over a gas burner on my stove).

        There are also Sweet & Sara vegan marshmallows at Whole Foods but they are kept in the refrigerated case and they are more of a dessert/candy item (some have flavors) and they don’t come in convenient package sizes for recipes.

      • I really like Dandies. They taste just like regular marshmallows, although slightly less fluffy. But if you cook with them or put them in hot chocolate, you won’t even notice. They do go stale fairly quickly though.

      • Thanks for the info! I like marshmallows mainly for roasting, so Dandies sound great. I’ll check out Sweet & Sara’s too, I’m always up for a new dessert. 🙂
