Happy Dance! My August Tasting Box is Here!

This month, the theme of our tasting box is:  Childhood Faves, All Grown Up.

The childhood favorites box includes:  the cutest jar of ketchup ever from Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup, Marshmallow Crunch Bar from Full Bloom Baking Company, two Simple Squares (coconut and rosemary flavors) from Simple Squares, four pouches of nut butters (honey peanut butter, maple almond butter, classic peanut butter and chocolate hazelnut butter flavors) from Justin’s,  North Fork Sweet Potato Chips from Martin Sidor Farms, and Frrrrozen Hot Chocolate Mix from Serendipity 3.

The first thing I noticed this month is that there’s chocolate in there!  As a chocoholic, I tend to get giddy at the sight of chocolate.  But, I’m just as excited to try some of these other items, including the scooping ketchup, which is a product I’ve been intrigued by for months, but haven’t yet ordered.  Perhaps this sample will be the gentle nudge I need to order some!  I’m also very happy with the nut butters, as I saw these in Chuck’s Produce recently and considered purchasing some … again, these samplings might be just what I needed!

Also included in the box is a map card. Since my previous scans of these cards were pretty difficult to read, I’ve decided to discontinue including them in my post.

I’m so excited I don’t know where to start with these goodies!  Yummy!

    With the exception of the ketchup(too sweet) and the sweet potato chips(dry/bland), this has been one of my favourite boxes so far.
    The Frozen Hot Chocolate(I made with coconut milk – rich. just awesome.) and the Marshmallow Bar(so buttery and good!) were FANTASTIC.
    I can’t wait to see what they have lined up for Fall. I’m hoping for a good balsamic, maybe some pumpkin, apple, and fig related items.

    Oh… some balsamic vinegar would be awesome! I would also love to try anything fig… one of my favorite fruits but something I don’t usually have because the rest of my family doesn’t really care for figs.

    I actually loved the ketchup, and it is certainly one of my favorite items in the box thus far. I also loved the maple almond butter… Oh my goodness. And the marshmallow bar was amazing also. I haven’t yet tried the coconut simple bar, two of the nut butters, nor the frozen chocolate, but, I do look forward to those soon. (my trusty blender that I’ve had for years recently died, so I need to break down and invest in a new one). But even without having tried those, I would have to say that this is my favorite box thus far.

    Thanks again for the comments! I love hearing other peoples thoughts on these boxes because I absolutely love them!
