My August Knoshbox arrived on the 26th of August … which is about the time of the month that I receive the Knoshboxes (sometime between the 20th and the 30th of each month … except for February because … there’s only 28 days in February!) I was a little concerned when I received it because the box was dented up and there is a sticker on it that says “glass” so … I was a little worried that I’d have something broken in my box.
Fortunately, this wasn’t the case. The “glass” that the sticker referred to was a jar of honey with the honeycomb. Mmm! The “theme” of this box … even though it isn’t really mentioned on the card insert … seems to be items you might find at a County Fair! Or at least … that’s what the items in the box seem to be saying to me.
There are a couple of familiar items, including Cherry Vanilla flavored Cotton Candy from Spun City and Maple Kettle Korn from Bureau’s Sugarhouse. I’ve tried and reviewed both of these items previously (to check out the reviews, just click on the item), so I won’t be writing reviews for them again. But I certainly will be enjoying them again because these are seriously yummy treats!
The item I’m most excited about is the Salt Water Taffy from Salty Road. You may recall that I previously reviewed the Salty Peanut flavor of Taffy from this company and I absolutely loved it. The flavor I was absolutely DYING to try from this company is Bergamot … and guess what’s in this month’s Knoshbox! Yes! Bergamot Taffy from Salty Road! Yay! Just another reason why I love Knoshbox more than all the other boxes out there.
Two other items round out this month’s box: a package of sundried, sweetened cherries from All Good Provisions and the aforementioned jar of honey from Full Bloom Apiaries.
So, even though this box has a couple of repeats … they are repeats of previously sampled favorites, so I’m not complaining. I love my Knoshbox this month!
