This month’s box had a patriotic look and all of the items were nestled in brown paper squiggles and the glass items were protected with bubble wrap. There was even a mini American Flag on top, which can be seen in my final photo.
There was a card introducing the monthly theme, which was Uncle Sam! This is perfect for July and our nation’s birthday!
The flip side of the card had the product information.
Roost Crate gives back to their community by partnering with Capital Roots to give a portion of their proceeds to local farmers and vendors. They included a card that shows how you can win a bonus item in your next box by sharing your photos on social media.
There was an insert that mentions next month’s box – Roost Crate is turning 1 year old and Ice Cream Social is the theme!
Everything in my box! Roost Crate sends 4-6 items each month such as jams, honey, sauces, snacks, candles, soaps & scrubs, unique home & kitchen items, and coffee & teas. My box smelled really good, too!
Lodgical Homestead Creations Happy Birthday America Muffin Mix I’ve lost count of how many days it’s been 100°+ in my town. This is pretty typical for my part of Texas so I just don’t turn on my oven from May-September. I am going to save this for Veterans Day.
The instructions and fresh ingredients were listed and the back says it’s good until December. There was a lot of white powder in my box, I think it came out of the holes in the top of the bag.
The Hudson Standard Strawberry Rhubarb Shrub Syrup One of my favorite pie flavors, in drink form! A shrub is a drink made with a sweetened vinegar based syrup and this one featured two of my favorite fruits. I mixed it with sparkling soda and it was sweet and vinegary and refreshing on a hot day. The syrup can also be used in a homemade salad dressing or you can mix it with rum or bourbon. There was even a card included that gave a recipe for a strawberry margarita!
Collar City Candle made these cute little votives that are red (cherry), white (lemon), and blue (raspberry) and they smell fruity and are too cute!
Uncle Sam’s All American Chocolate Factory Blue Raspberry Fruit Slices The theme even extends to the candy this month!
I’m not into jelly candies but my daughter really liked the blue raspberry flavor!
T & J Handcrafted Soap Bomb Pop Bath Bomb How cute is this bath bomb? I couldn’t find it listed for sale on the site so I think this is a Roost Crate exclusive.
My bomb pop was a little worse for wear but once you throw it in the bath it’s all good. I haven’t tried it yet because it’s in the hundreds here and I don’t want a bath plus it smells so good that it is just sitting in my office as a kind of air freshener! I just left it on the plate after I took the photo and I love the blue raspberry scent!
The final item this month isn’t actually from New York and is listed as a bonus item on the info card. Udderly Smooth Hand Cream is non-greasy and has a light, pleasant scent and I can always use some hand cream!
What a fun theme this month from Roost Crate! I even learned a bit of history about Uncle Sam and have a bonus American flag that sits on my table next to my bath bomb/air freshener. The items all went extremely well with the theme and I have a new refreshing drink for the hot days ahead. Some of these items can be ordered online, but others are only available in the NY area. If you like unique 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!
