December Hatchery Box

Hatchery is a subscription box for small batch food products from independent makers. This is always a great way to be able to try artisan type food products without ordering in large quantities. Each month you will get 5-6 products. The price of this box is $20 a month w/shipping included. I found a deal through Gilt for half off a 12 month subscription so each box cost me $10.  

Price: $20 a month

This box is available to the US and Canada. 

The good: 

Variety: You get to try a variety of items without having to order from lots of places. 

Not just food: They also included mixers for drinks!

Info: They product a booklet with info on each product/company. 

Need a Gift: They offer 3, 6 and 12 month gift subscriptions.

Instructions: They include recipes and or uses for the products in the box. 

Need More: They have a marketplace where you can shop your box!

The not so good:

Discounts: No discounts for long term subscriptions. 

This is how the box looks when first opened. Each piece individually wrapped. 

The artisan products.

Tattly Tattoo's.

Contents of the Hatchery Box:

1 oz. LA Culinary La Sriracha Racha. Value = $1.00

2 oz. Element (Shrub) Chai Pear Herbal Elixer. Value = $4.75

2 oz. The Craic and Blonde Hot Haitian Pikliz (pickled carrots & cabbage). Value = $6.67

.5 oz. Del Viejo Datil Pepper Seasoning. Value = $1.28

.5 oz. Jolene's Jar Bloody Mary Boost. Value = $1.14

Tattly Temporary Tattoo's. Value = $5.00

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.
