Oohh, look at this cool stuff! This month is dedicated to the all-American pastime! Was it a grand slam, or did they strike out? Let’s take a closer look and see!
Roost Crate sends 4-6 items each month such as jams, honey, sauces, snacks, candles, soaps & scrubs, unique home & kitchen items, and coffee & teas. I loved the variety of items that were included in this box and couldn’t wait to give them a try!
There was a card introducing the monthly theme, which was “Take Me Out to the Ball Game!”
The flip side of the card had the product information, value, and a short bio about each company featured, and announced next month’s theme, which is “Renew & Rejuvenate.”
Roost Crate Baseball Cap ($18) A baseball cap is just the thing for this month’s theme, and this one features the Roost Crate logo embroidered on the front.
I will keep this handy for outdoor excursions and trips to the pool.
Peanuts, get your Healthy Gourmet Kitchen Chili Lime Peanuts ($4) here.
These babies had a little bit of spice and a delicate lime flavor and were packaged for handy travel.
You know how the song says “buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack”? I don’t like Cracker Jack, but Kernel Cravings Butter Toffee Cashew Caramel Popcorn ($7) is so tasty!
The butter toffee popcorn has a hint of vanilla and the butter toffee cashews make this fancier than the usual caramel corn offerings. Plus the resealable bag is perfect for toting along in a bag or backpack.
T & J Handcrafted Cotton Candy Sugar Scrub ($15) This stuff smells wonderfully luxurious and made me feel 5 again.
I scooped some into my hand and applied all over, paying extra attention to elbows and knees. I rinsed and then toweled off and didn’t need a moisturizer. Plus I smelled divine. I’m going to need a bigger vat.
I thought T&J Handcrafted Soap Ginger Ale Cold Process Soap ($6) worked well. It sudsed up and rinsed off, but it also stained my white washcloth, so use an old or dark one if you like. The clay helps exfoliate and detox the skin while the scent of lemon-lime soda was barely there and therefore not overwhelming!
I loved this month’s theme and the way Roost Crate pulled it all together! They hit it out of the park! You don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy this box. The March box had a value of $50, which means it hit their promised target value, too. Some of these items can be ordered online, but others are only available in the NY area. If you like natural and delicious products that you might discover while wandering the farmer’s market, then give Roost Crate a try and let me know what you think of this box in the comments!
