Subscription Box Insanity: Hamptons Lane (Apr. ’15)

Hamptons Lane

Hamptons Lane

My husband and I, well more so he than I, are closet foodies. He loves to watch the cooking channel and sometimes pulls together some interesting, if not tasty, concoctions. It’s one of the reasons he’s so dear to me.

In any case, I actually got a subscription from Hamptons Lane as a bit of a surprise for him. I wasn’t sure how it would be though, so I plan to poke through things first and maybe reveal things here and there as a nice surprise for him.

This box promises to provide “the food lover with the tools they need to enhance their culinary experience as chef, entertainer, and eater”. We certainly look forward to testing that out!

Subscription Box Insanity: Orange Glad (Mar. ’15)

Orange Glad: Simply Sweet

Orange Glad: Simply Sweet

I’ve had my eye on the Orange Glad subscription service and finally (FINALLY!) I found a deal for it during this year’s Black Friday sales.

I’ve got a hideous sweet tooth which I try not to indulge.  But I’ve decided to make this sweet box work in my favor. I’ve resolved that I will make the sweets that come inside last and try to limit myself to only these sweets during the month, if I can. That seems reasonable, no?

Of course having to wait to write this review also means I won’t be ripping open the package to devour them as soon as they come in…guess that helps too. -grin- (See my other reviews for Orange Glad here.)

Subscription Box Insanity: New England Sack (Jan. ’15)

New England Sack

New England Sack

Hi Readers! Really excited to bring a review to you today of a new box! Called the New England Sack, they just launched with their inaugural box in November. While I missed that box, I was able to purchase the December box and several months thereafter. (See my reviews for other months here.)

I’m a Midwestern transplant to the Mid-Atlantic region, with a long-time fascination of New England. I love the culture and lore, not to mention the beautiful scenery one can find in the coasts and forests (both features of which are somewhat foreign to me having grown up surrounded by flat farmland). So it was a bit of a no-brainer to at least try a box that promised to bring small batch, artisan products from local, New England small business owners.

You know me…I’m a huge fan of supporting entrepreneurs!
