The total value of the Hatchery box is $19.84. I was happy to see the value at the $20 mark. I am also happy to see that these products are all new to me. I can't wait to try the elixir. You can drink it plain but they also included a recipe that uses bourbon, so I'm going that route. I'm also very curious about the pickled carrots. I only hope it's not too hot. They suggest putting it on oysters but I kind of like my oysters plain. I don't drink bloody mary's but it also says it's good in Micheladas which is a beer based drink. I may give that one a try. I am not sure what I'm going to do with the tattoo's but I think just for fun I'll put them on and see how long before the boyfriend notices.
Verdict: This looks like it's going to be a fun box.
