This month the destination is Maryland!


When I think of Maryland I think of the sea! This box reinforced that for me, and I loved it! My Dad was born and raised in Maryland so it definitely has a special place in my heart.


Waxing Kara Breakfast Bar Soap Bar – $9.00

This bar of soap came wrapped in a little muslin sack, perfect for gifting. It has “Soothing oatmeal, honey, and the added benefit of anti-bacterial cinnamon essential oil” in the soap, and I think it smells amazing. When I used it, I found that it was very moisturizing and not drying like standard bar soap. 

Firebird Bath and Body Saltwater Body Lotion – $9.00

I could not stop smelling my hands after using this. The consistency of the lotion is very light, almost whipped, but it doesn’t feel heavy or cloying. It goes on really smoothly, and hydrates for quite a while. I can’t quite place the scent, but I would guess that the scent comes from the jojoba in the lotion. They describe it as sea water, salt air, and driftwood for the scent, but I don’t catch those notes at all.


Here’s a closer look at the soap and the lotion – they make the perfect pair!


Dolle’s Candyland Salt Water Taffy – $4.99

This taffy is Neapolitan flavored: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. I found that the consistency was very chewy – but not hard – it is exactly what taffy should be. I enjoyed each flavor, but definitely preferred the strawberry. 


Fisher’s Popcorn – Caramel Popcorn with Crab Seasoning – Value $4.25

When I first saw that this had crab seasoning on it, I was a bit weirded out. I tried it though, and didn’t really get more flavor than just a salted caramel, which was great. I enjoyed the flavor of the caramel, mixed with the crunchiness of the popcorn. This is caramel popcorn done right!


Annapolis Candle – Bay Breeze – $8.00

This candle smells amazing. It is exactly what you imagine a bay breeze would smell like – fresh, brisk, and clean. This is definitely one of my favorite items in the box, second only to the saltwater lotion! This is a clean burning, soy candle.

Verdict: The value of this Hammock Pack is about $35.24, right over the cost of the box. I really enjoyed all of the items included and think that the value of this box is reasonably good; you’re definitely getting your money back. The saltwater lotion and bay breeze candle were definitely the highlights for me – they both smell so great.

Are you from Maryland? Do you think this Hammock Pack did your state justice? I definitely loved it!

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. Wow this looks like a really great box that I never seen before. I love a mixed box. I loved that they added a candle and any box that adds a candle to my box I fall in love. I love that there is shipping included too. These sorta boxes always cost like 50 plus. So 32 is a really nicer price. Such a great review.

  2. I’m from the Eastern Shore—actually in Delaware, but only 1 mile over the Maryland state line. I think this box is a great representation of Maryland! The only thing missing is a small can of “Old Bay” seasoning & something with a Blue Crab…they did try to throw it in with the Fisher’s popcorn, so I guess it is in there. Nicely Done.

  3. I love fishers popcorn, we are able to buy variations at the local country market ( NW MD Area) Bergers cookies would be a great addition too.

  4. I love Fisher’s Popcorn. We buy it by the bucket when we visit the beach. I have to admit I’ve never had it with crab spice.

  5. Anyone know any coupon codes for the first box on a monthly subscription? I think I might subscribe. This looks like a great box.

    • I’ve never seen coupon codes. I message them to ask and they never answered me.

  6. Caramel and crab popcorn? I had to read that twice. I love the idea of crab seasoned popcorn…but not caramel crab. Glad it tasted good, though!

    • I think it was just the spices they use on crab – not really crab flavored popcorn! I could be wrong though!
