Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the March My Texas Market… it’s been a while so we are pretty darn excited!
Everything that we received in our “Rodeo” themed March Box! 
We love this spread!

So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert that tells us about each of the companies included in our box
Basic Foodism has a philosophy that food should only contain what is natural and essential. So it goes without saying that their all natural thick and spicy barbeque sauce contains real ingredients like tomatoes, onions, and garlic. It is also important to note the things it doesn’t contain like artificial preservatives, colors, and high fructose corn syrup. A delicious and bold barbeque sauce indeed!
Park Bark Republic of Texas Magnet
This very cool magnet was made from the wood of a reclaimed pecan tree (the Texas state tree). What a perfect gift for a Texas native! We love that this company offers an environmentally friendly alternative to normal wooden wares!
Kuhdoo Soap Co. Texas Gentleman Shave Bar
Using plant based oils Kuhdoo Soap uses ingredients we can pronounce. This is labeled as a shave bar but can be used to wash as well… the scent is beautiful and not masculine so we may just keep this one for ourselves! Check out their shop for all of their amazing goodies, we window shopped for quite a while!
Garden Dreams Houston Texas 2 Step Jam
We couldn’t find a price for this online. And while we haven’t tried it out yet we are definitely excited to. One of the perks of this blogging gig is getting to try different foods from all over and some of our favorites have been jams – so we have high hopes!
With the flavor of strawberries and some jalapeno this jam promises to add a little two step to our next jam on toast session!
Tejas Chocolate Single Origin Chocolate
We received the Bayou City Bar but any of their single origin chocolate bars was a possibility in the March My Texas Market Box
This chocolate bar made in small batches with minimal and pure ingredients had notes of Raisin, Malt and Black Cherry. The cocoa beans used are slow roasted in a clay brick oven and stone ground over days… basically made with muchas love
ATX Peppered Handmade Jerky
What Rodeo box would be complete without some good old jerky? This jerky is made with grassfed Angus Beef. It has no preservatives, no MSG, and is all natural!
The flavor is quite natural. almost earthy and just a bit of heat. The texture is softer than most other jerkies we’ve ever had. We think it’s pretty delicious!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. My Texas Market is a great way to try small batch, artisanal brands that we would otherwise never know about! We love the presentation, there is a careful consideration in the packing and we just love their very detailed box inserts. Quality is wonderful. Everything that we received is high quality and made from the best of nature. Curation is awesome! We received items that perfectly halo the rodeo season in Texas! Couldn’t have asked for a more tasty or fun selection of items. 
The My Texas Market Box is a great idea for a Texas native or the experimentalist who loves trying different products and food from small businesses. As far as box economy The My Texas Market Box costs $35 and while we couldn’t find a few of the items online we know with just the items that we could find totalled $34. We definitely think that this box is well worth it’s price.
