Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Discover Our America Box.
Since we don’t get to travel too much we were extra excited for this box!
Everything that we received in our Discover our America Box.
This first month takes us to…. Michigan!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert. This details everything that we received
Our Michigan pamphlet
They seriously covered every base here. It was places to see. weather, history and geography. It even included information on the great lakes which in case you aren’t aware are 1/5 of the Earth’s fresh water!
Mackinac Island Fudge
Salt Water Taffy
One of the more colorful items in this subscription box was this Salt Water Taffy.
This recipe dates back to the late 1800’s and is made on Mackinac Island
Typically we pass off the flavors we don’t like so much ie: Root Beer, Licorice to the kids… because they’ll eat anything!
We struggled though, because every flavor of taffy was phenomenal! The perfect taffy type as well… just chewy enough and a good bit of salt!
These certainly didn’t last long. Here is one of the more fruity flavors (we enjoy those the most!)
Zingerman’s started as a delicatessan and specialty food store. It branched out into the sweet world and created this little delight!
It came in a box and then wrapped in this silver foil. We knew immediately this was more than your typical candy bar
Inside was the most genius mix of milk chocolate fudge, muscovado caramel, and malted milk cream fondant. Making this a truly rich and decadent dessert
The most popular Michigan Popcorn Company since 1923 and still using the same recipe for it’s caramel corn
We received a three ounce bag of this yummy sweet treat
We haven’t had a chance to try this yet, however we definitely relish the opportunity to try new coffees and this one… is made for hardworking humans and we’d like to think that that’s us!
This company was founded at the headquarters of the Becharas Brothers Company. A Detroit company since 1914
Ask us if we mind receiving tasty little confections like this?! Heck No!
Sander’s Candy is a staple and has been around since 1875!
The salt to caramel ratio (yes that is a thing because we said so!) is perfect!
We’ve heard of Faygo but have never had an opportunity to try it. In Michigan they call it Pop we call it soda though, so excuse our mispronunciation. Faygo is now distributed in the US, Canada, and Europe.
We’ve been informed that another Michigan Born installment are big fans
We didn’t let this fact sully our experience though. And we immediately fell in love with the cream flavored soda! So glad we received a cream soda too! It’s one of the only sodas flavors we like!
We love to try new hot teas and wild cherry is about as new as we can think of! With a black tea base and Wild Cherry Extract as a flavoring you can’t go wrong!
They came in a nifty plastic container and were pre-bagged for our convenience!
It has a good deep black tea color and has a rich flavor with just a hint of cherry tang. Thoroughly enjoyable!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Discover Our America Box is a fun way to learn more about the greatest place ever, USA! We love this concept and feel that something like this is educational in a fun and interactive sort of way. The presentation is excellent. Such an informative booklet and the box was carefully packed (there were even two for extra safe keeping). The quality is amazing. The companies that were included are time tested and some of Michigan’s most treasured traditional brands! The curation – spectacular! What an awesome array of items. And we have to admit we are bowled over by the pamphlet. We love the thoughtful nature of this box and the deliberate selection of all of these fantastic items and we can’t wait to see where Discover Our America goes next!
As far as box economy the Discover Our America Box costs $39.95 and while we couldn’t find prices for each item included in this box, we feel that most of what we’re paying for with a subscription box such as this is the curation and brand awareness aspect. We really feel like this box is bringing something brand new to the table!
