In my previous post, I wrote about how home sick for Texas I had been. In general, I found My Texas Market fun, but not a feeling of home. This box did not disappoint and I felt the Texan right away! Thanks My Texas Market!
The box and the items didn't disappoint.
First off was the Bravado Spice Co's Jalapeño Green Apple Hot Sauce ($7.00). A taste of home with both a sweet and spicy feel to it. Looks good. Smells good. Will have to do some grilling this weekend.
Next was this koozie from Stateline Designs ($5.00). Andrew and I read through each one of them and it was fun explaining the fun phrases and references to singers and songwriters. Some of these will not make sense to the non-Texan in your life, and some may be a little hard to read. Still, Beyonce and JJ Watt on the same beer koozie is entertaining. Bonus, Texas meets Club Beer (or Andrew's homebrew) is a nice cultural combination.
Next was SALSA!!!! This jar was from Salinas ($7.50). It is amazing here in Ghana to get a non-Tostito brand salsa. The hot scared me, but Andrew tasted and was impressed. Now all I have to do is find quality tortilla chips here that don't cost $8 a bag (mental note: start planning consumables shipment).
The box also contained a small bag of caramel candy from Dallas Caramel Company ($7.00)in three flavors: original, bacon, and chipotle. These were really enjoyable. The flavors didn't really come out so much, but they were definitely there. For example, there was a hint of bacon, but it didn't overpower the caramel. It could have been stronger. Nevertheless, these lasted about three seconds.
I haven't tried the lotion yet, but I am really digging the earrings. They're a good casual, nonformal heart earrings.
Overall, out of 10, on quality I give this box an 8, on cost 7, on appropriate for me 9, and on fun a 10. My Texas Market is $35.00 a month with a reduction to $100 for 3 months and $195 for 6 months.
