The information card this month and a rooster that was half asleep. The theme for the box is “Morning Glory”. I am typically not a breakfast person, but I have enjoyed eating breakfast, while I was on vacation last week. My husband loves breakfast and he would eat breakfast for dinner if I made it.
The inside of the information card has full color photos and descriptions of everything in the box.
There were eight recipe cards included in the box. They all contains ingredients from this month's box. The Hatch Chile Chicken Tortilla Soup, the Fennel and Maple Sausage and the Brown Butter Maple Pumpkin Muffins all look especially yummy.
Blackberry Patch Pure Maple Syrup $9.95 This is all natural syrup and it is made in small batches. I have had fresh syrup when I vacationed up north and this tastes just as good. This is a thinner syrup than I have had before, but it's still really good.
McClureâ€™s Pickles Bloody Mary Mixer $8.00 I don't like tomato juice and I rarely drink vodka, so this is all for my husband. He is excited to try it, but requests some vodka first. This looks really delicious, even from someone who doesn't like Bloody Mary's.
Teapigs English Breakfast Tea $10.00 My husband is the resident tea drinker in our house. This English tea is a combination of Assam, Ceylon and Rwandan. It is a black tea and has a slightly bitter taste. C thought it just tasted “okay”.
The Gracious Gourmet Hatch Chile Pesto $10.00 This pesto is made with garlic, cilantro and onions. While this was put in this box for breakfast dishes, I am going to use it as a marinade for dinner. You can also use this with pasta, salads and many other dishes.
Callieâ€™s Charleston Biscuits Buttermilk Biscuit Mix $7.00: I love biscuits with strawberry jelly, or with a sausage patty. I put dough around a hot dog and those are great for a brunch. This will be used for sure.
The Jam Stand You're My Boy BLUE-berry Bourbon Jam $10.00 I have had other Jam Stand product in subscription boxes, and they have all been very tasty. This is blueberry jam that is also made with vanilla and bourbon. My husband tasted this and LOVES IT. His quote was “Woah, there is some bourbon in those berries.” He said you can smell the bourbon but taste the berries.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $54.95. This was a very nicely curated box. All the items went well with a breakfast theme. While I am not really a breakfast person, I like that I could use some of the items for dinner (the pesto, and biscuits). My husband enjoyed the jam and the syrup the most. Remember, when you sign up, you will also get a recipe box. You can see my first box, that included the recipe box HERE. If you want to try BiteBox, click HERE.
