Hamptons Lane is a fantastic new gourmet/foodie subscription box. August’s theme is Ice Cream Sundae Barand you can still pick up this box through the end of August. As soon as I saw this box, well, we had to have an actual ice cream sundae bar! This box actually came (again) in a large outer box, because the ice cream container didn’t fit!
We received the fabulous Hampton’s Lane booklet describing each and every item – with recipes on the back – plus:
Sweet Treats Ice Cream Tub by Tovolo ($10), which will be perfect for our ice cream creations (the maker is currently packed or I would have done something entirely ridiculous, FYI, I recommend the technique pioneered by Jeni’s) or to take to the local creamery!
And also the Red & White Extra Wide Paper Straws by Kikkerland ($9) which are super sturdy and will hold up for 3 hours. I’m thinking root beer float personally but who knows!
Edible Pretzel Spoons by Foodiespoon ($13) These are so cool – and not normally available at retail. I think three were broken and these survived. I think they sent extra knowing that some wouldn’t make it. Everyone loved them. I was the stupid one who kept eating my spoon.
Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee Caramel from Fat Toad Farm ($14) Featured in my husband’s sundae, this is a goat’s milk caramel made in Vermont (just like him!) with cold brewed coffee.
Tovolo Tilt Up Ice-Cream Scoop ($10.60) THIS IS A SERIOUSLY AWESOME ICE CREAM SCOOP! I even scooped ice cream straight out of the bucket straight from the back of the freezer, and my hand is all carpal-tunneled right now. It totally lived up to all its promises.
Vanilla Finishing Salt by Didi David Food ($8) Featured in my salt-fiend Vanilla Pretzeled Salty Peach Sundae! Delicious, a MUST try, the salt is perfect for fruit. What, you never heard of that? It’s a thing, I promise.
You can still get the August Ice Cream Sundae Bar box! Just visit Hamptons Lane to pick this up – a totally great value. I cannot wait until next month – this is now officially my entire family’s favorite subscription box!
FYI – How this box works.You still get the savings from the subscription box model (it’s $45 per month including shipping) but you can skip the month if you already have the items or aren’t interested in the theme – you’ll know what’s in the box ahead of time! Just go ahead and register for a new account and you should get monthly emails letting you know what’s in the box until you are ready to pick up a box!
The Description: Each month, Hamptons Lane curates an amazing box of artisan foods, kitchen tools, and serveware for the food lover. Each month is different – spotlighting a different region, food, ingredient, skill, or activity – and you can always skip if you don’t want that month’s box, free of charge.
The Price: $45 per month
The Coupon: Get $10 off your first box! Just use this link to save! FYI because you aren’t charged immediately, this will show up on billing day, but it will be there when you are charged.
