This post contains affiliate links
Batch Nashville, who sent me this box to review, is a new subscription box that brings the best local goods and ships them all over the United States. Co-founders Stephen Moseley, Sam Davidson, and Rob Williams joined together to bring you hand crafted, artisanal, local products to your door. Batch Nashville is $31.98 a month and ships the beginning of the month. There is also Batch Memphis, which costs the same but brings the best Memphis has to offer.
Cost: $31.98 a month. You can order a seasonal subscription for an even better value. A seasonal subscription includes March (Family Tradition), April (Country Roads) and May (Grillin’ & Chillin’).
What’s in the box? Each monthly Batch is organized around a common theme and arrives to subscribers the first week of each month. Each month you’ll get your money’s worth. Batches are full of items that retail equal to or more than what youâ€™ll pay as a subscriber. Our commitment to you is delivering delight and discovery of the highest value.
When does the box ship? Boxes ship and arrive at the beginning of the month.
Batch Nashville arrive in a big brown box with the logo stamped on it. Batch Nashville ships USPS.
Batch Nashville included a big information sheet that included descriptions of each item. The theme for this box is movie night. The information sheet is titled “Credits”. On the back, there is a little movie written out with lines. It is really cute and very creative. I love the extra attention to the theme. I haven’t seen anything that creative in a box before,
The Bang Candy Company Handmade Marshmallows $5,00 The Bang Candy Company is owned and run by Sarah Souther. The box came with hand made marshmallows in the following flavors: Black Currant Cloves, Chocolate Chili, Matcha Mint and Orange Giner Cinnamon marshmallows with white and dark Crispearls. We tried the Matcha Mint and my 23 month old and I loved it! Hand made marshmallows are so much better than store bought.
White’s Elixirs Saigon Cinnamon Simple Syrup The White Brothers thought everyone should be able to create cocktails without having a chemistry degree. They created a line of hand crafted simple syrups that can be used to enhance cocktails, coffees, teas, sodas, foods and more. there is also a recipe for Eight Legs of Spice cocktail. I want to try it for a dinner party coming up.
Lisa’s Caramel Kettle Corn: Lisaâ€™s Kettle Corn is nut free, gluten-free, whole grain, kosher, and vegan. After battling Breast Cancer, Lisa wanted to start a business that was fun. Lisa and her husband Ron started in the popcorn buisness. The popcorn has a great flavor. It is light, flavorful and isn’t hard to chew. My 4 year old and I this and have ate half the bag so far.
Tempur by CG Artisanal Truffles: These truffles are packed in mini marshmallows to keep the truffles fresh. The marshmallows absorb all the moisture. My little boy loves eating the mini marshmallows. The company uses chocolates from Belgium to produce rochers with a strong 70% dark chocolate and a creamy 36% milk chocolate. My husband is hard to impress, but he really liked these.
Batch Nashville “And the Winner is” Napkins: These were made specifically for this box. These would work for movie night but also for an awards show or an athletic awards party.
Final Thought: This was a really fun box! I wasn’t able to get retail prices for most of the items. because they are locally available. I love that I can’t buy these products on Amazon. I love Amazon, but I have a strong love of thing locally made my hand. I love supporting small businesses. Batch Nashville has released the themes for the next few boxes: March (Family Tradition), April (Country Roads) and May (Grillin’ & Chillin’). They all sounds great to me and I am thinking of signing up for a subscription. If you are interested in signing up for Batch Nashville or Batch Memphis, click HERE.
