Organic Heirloom Cinderella Pumpkin Seeds – $2.75

Organic Heirloom Jarrahdale Pumpkin Seeds – $2.75

How fun is this?!  I love the idea of having a garden, and actually just planted some onions, shallots, and herbs in planters!  I am debating growing these, or passing them off to my sister who has a greener thumb than I do.  I’ve never seen or tried Jarrahdale pumpkins, and want these to flourish so I can try them! 

Copper & Kraft White Pumpkin and Lilac Candle – $6.95

This scent is so unusual, but I really like it!  I never would have picked pumpkin and lilac to go together, but the scent is unexpected and quite fresh.  It is actually a perfect spring scent with the lilac added to it.  This is a hand poured, soy candle. 


Grow Ornament – Primitives by Kathy – $1.84

This is a very cute ornament.  It would be cute in a garden on a little stake, for sure!  Maybe if I hang this near my pumpkins, I’ll actually keep them alive?  Like a constant command to “GROW!”  (Yes, I realize plants don’t read, just indulge me a bit.)

Pumpkin and Oatmeal Face Mask – Megan’s Soapbox – $4.50

I just tried this mask to give a full review of it.  The product picture on Etsy shows this mask being pretty smooth – my mask was very chunky.  The chunky texture of my mask made it a bit difficult to put on and remove.  I did feel a slight tingle, but that’s typical of enzymatic masks in my experience.  My skin felt quite smooth after using this, but I use acids and retinol on a daily basis, so your mileage may vary. 

Creamy Pumpkin Soup – Maggie and Mary’s – $7.50

I made this for lunch today, and it was quite delicious.  It is savory with the underlying spices of cinnamon and nutmeg – the flavor reminds me quite a bit of pumpkin ravioli or pumpkin gnocchi dishes! 

Verdict:  The value of this Pumpkin Batch box is about $26.29, which falls a bit short of the cost of the box.  I do think of the seeds as a bit higher value than is assigned to them – if you can get them to grow, you’ll have pumpkins in the fall!  Even with that, it does seem to be a bit of a lower value box, and I’d love to see the value come up in the future for subscribers.  

I think this was a great spring box for pumpkin lovers – with a nice spring scented candle, seeds to plant, and a soup for those last cold snaps during the spring!

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 think starting with this box they lowered the monthly price to $24.99. I had 2 three month subscriptions and recently cancelled. I did get a few boxes I really liked but the value was not there at the higher price. I probably would revisit them in the Fall/Winter season.

    • As much as I love Pumpkin I realize It extends mostly to food items; the candles and knick knacks are not interesting or useful–though I can see me enjoying the seeds–I have a great squash section in my garden every year! Price point needs to be lower or value needs to be there for gift consideration. Nice review, though!

  2. Seven dollars for a tiny candle??? Do they actually sell any?
