My Texas Market March 2017 Subscription Box Review 

img_9870

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!!!).

The items were wrapped in bubble wrap and there were brown paper squiggles to keep everything safe.

Everything in my box!

I found some inserts and loved the card with info about bees!

March’s theme was “The Bee’s Knees” and is all about our small little buzzy friends. My name means “honey bee” so I have a fondness for bees and honey. This card also says that April’s box theme will be “Blackberries & Bluebonnets”!

My Texas Market includes a card with a little info about the products and their producers, plus where they are located and instructions for their use.

Desert Creek Honey Raw Texas Honey Or as I like to call it, “liquid gold.” This is so good and has a pure, sweet flavor that is so much better than the stuff that comes in little bears from the grocery store. I used it on a wafflewich – toasted Nutrigrain waffles spread with peanut butter, sprinkled with raisins, and drizzled with honey. It’s also possible I just dipped a spoon inside and stuck it in my mouth. PS – if you really want your honey in a bear-shaped bottle you can find it on the Desert Creek website!

SRSLY Chocolate + Two Hives Honey This is a special product that joins two Austin-based companies to produce a delicious item.

The chocolate ganache features honey rather than sugar and the outer shell is made of dark chocolate for a sublime bite of bliss.

Mind Your Own Beeswax Candle Company Citrus Sunshine Aromatherapy Candle is made from beeswax and pure essential oils and has a sunny, uplifting fragrance. I like to burn candles while I’m blogging to help me focus and relax.

Gretchen Bee Ranch Lip Balm in Sweet Orange is silky smooth and left my lips soft and nourished. It is made with beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet orange essential oil and smells delightful.

Moore Honey Pure Beeswax Bars are made from 100% pure beeswax that has had dirt and other debris filtered out. It has a delicate scent and a quick search on Pinterest led to an assortment of “recipes” that call for beeswax. You can DIY your own lip balm, lotions, candles, and even solid perfume!

I ALWAYS enjoy getting my monthly taste of Texas! I loved the bee theme and the products were all of high quality and fit the theme PERFECTLY! Texas has some wonderful makers and this box features them to great effect. I love that My Texas Market takes the time to visit farmers’ markets across the state and then picks the best of the best!
