Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Cool Beans Box. Howdy right back at ya’
Everything that was included in the Debut Cool Beans Box Market Club Quarterly.
This box, inspired by Fall Fairs and Festivals in the Texas Prairies and Lakes is an amazing collection of items!
So what is all this stuff?
Our insert that details each of the places we go on our trip and the items we picked up along the way!
The Cool Beans Box Mission Statement and our Howdy Y’all card!
Handcrafted in China Springs,Texas this soap is LARGE and will last us quite a while. The Orange Clove scent is a welcome change from more traditional soap scents as well!
It’s a gorgeous bar with a mottled orange and brown coloring
This is PERFECT for our Mother in Law! She is French and living in Texas! Totally gifted this to her. Also, in the unboxing we said we weren’t sure where El Paso was in the Texas regions.. it’s in Big Bend Country…
A perfectly adorable spatula you can find here
The back has standard measurements on it.
One of the stops the Cool Beans Box took was to the Texas State Fair in Dallas
Made in Red Oak,Texas this miniature pecan pie was delicious! Found at none other than the Texas State Fair how could one possibly resist! Love the tiny little tin that it came in!
Perfect size for one person. This was scrumptious!
All natural goat’s milk soap in the shape of good ol’ Texas!! Beautifully blue colored and made from all natural ingredients in Franklin, Texas
Great as a gift or a decorative hand soap. Comes in this Texas Bluebonnet scent as well as Red Currant, Lone Star Leather and Texas Peach
Another item procured at the Texas State Fair is this Toasted Pecan Pepper Jam from JJ&B Extraordinary Artisan Spreads. Located in Dallas, Texas JJ&B makes so many delectable sounding jams and this one is no exception!
Can be eaten on crackers or with cheese. You can alternatively use this as a glaze for meats as well. We think our favorite thing is that this jam has just six simple ingredients!
What a tasty sounding treat! Check out their website for some beautiful pictures of what a lavender farm looks like! We haven’t had a chance to make these yet but Lemon Lavender Scones sound fabulous!
A delicious smelling coffee scrub for all over your body! We’ve done coffee scrubs before and find them so amazing! But the addition of the hazelnut adds a creamy scent that cannot be beat!
Add in coconut oil and we’re left with this nourishing scrub that exfoliates and hydrates at once!
This all natural lip balm has beeswax and mint with just a hint of rosemary. Very nice!
Found at the “Come and Take It Festival” in Gonzales, Texas. Gonzales, Texas held the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico. This historical line was spoken during the battle. We had to do a bit of internet searching but found out the whole story here
This Texas Travel Map is an excellent addition to this Texas themed box!
Another Texas event guide for festivals, concerts, exhibits, parades and all things fun in Texas!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Cool Beans Box Market Club Quarterly is so full of amazing items we can’t believe it! We love everything included and the variety is amazing as well! We love their dedication to small women owned businesses as well. The presentation is fantastic. The box is gorgeous and everything arrives exactly as it should. The quality is fabulous – all handmade items made in small batches from the very best that Texas has to offer. And finally curation is PERFECT. Definitely a great way to bring everything together with the tour of festivals throughout the Prairies and Lakes of Texas!
