My Texas Market December 2016 Subscription Box Review

img_4800

My Texas Market is a monthly subscription box containing 4-6 items from small businesses in Texas that focuses on small batch and artisan products that fit a monthly theme. Have you ever wandered around the farmers market and wondered what to buy? It’s like they selected the products for you and shipped them to your house! The subscription is $35 a month or you can choose a 3- or 6-month subscription and save a little dough. Right now if you enter promo code 10FIRST you can save 10% off your first box! You can also send the box as a gift or purchase previous boxes and some featured items in their Online Market. To subscribe to My Texas Market, click here. This box was sent to me for review purposes (thank you My Texas Market!!!).

This month’s theme was “Home for the Holidays” and featured items to help us get in a festive spirit!

The product information card is very detailed and this month it had a little bit of a backstory from the owners of the companies that were featured!

This beautiful Christmas card greeted me when I opened the box and looked rustic and colorful!

Plus, festive confetti! All of the glass items were well protected with shredded brown paper and bubble wrap.

This looks like it’s going to be a tasty box!

I tried Jammit Jam Cherry Clove Cabernet on buttered toast but I think there are more sophisticated ways to use the rest of the jar up. Maybe with cheese on a cracker or as a baste for chicken breasts, either way, this is not like the stuff from the store. It isn’t too sweet and the cloves give the chunky fruit an unexpected lift. Biscuits, that’s what I’ll put it on!

I haven’t tried The Barton Table Peppermint Chocolate Sauce on ice cream yet, but I am sure it is amazing. I just keep eating it one bliss-inducing spoonful at a time! Butter, chocolate, cream, and peppermint are an indulgent treat not to be confused with that stuff from the grocery store.

I love the simplicity of this rustic-looking Texas ornament from Bleu Willow Market! If you like Fixer Upper and Chip & Joanna Gains or make pilgrimages to Magnolia Market then give this website a look because it has a selection of farmhouse casual items.

This is the time of year when I frequently whip up small vats of Mexican hot chocolate and I usually top it with whipped cream out of a can but next time around I might try one of Michele’s Marshmallows to put it over the top. These bear little resemblance to the ones from the store and are pillowy soft and taste like brown sugar and vanilla.

There is just the barest hint of crackly texture as you bite into this gooey treat.

To wrap up this month’s box there was a deliciously scented Holiday Cheer Bar Soap from Kuhdoo Soap Co. The ingredients are so simple: saponified coconut oil, honey, oatmeal, Shiner beer, and fragrance oil. This soap smells sweet and spicy!

I ALWAYS enjoy getting my monthly taste of Texas! These products fit the theme so well and were tasty, seasonal, and scent-sational. I love that My Texas Market takes the time to visit farmers’ markets across the state and then picks the best of the best!
