DSC_0092

I LOVE everything Vermont, Vermont is a little gem that has so much to offer and so many people don’t know so when I was given the pleasure of chatting with Jessica of Scrumptious Secrets of Vermont I just KNEW I had to spread the word about her subscription box.

Scrumptious Secrets of Vermont is a Vermont themed subscription box, the mission was simple, to bring Vermont’s all natural goodies to the world, this dream came true through a product during Jessica’s Senior Design class at Stevens Institute of Technology. She hand picked a team to help her and the team she picked had worked really hard their senior year to launch the site. Scrumptioussecrets.com launched successfully on March 23rd, 2015. Since graduation, Jess has continued working hard to ensure that her customers and community can finally taste the scrumptious secrets of Vermont. While Scrumptious Secrets of Vermont is based currently in New Jersey, Jessica grew to love Vermont(as many people do) on her many trips to her Grandparents in Cambridge, VT.

Some of the supplies they work with are Benito’s Hot Sauce,Blake Hill Farm, Garuka Bars,Ravenscroft Farms, Stir Chocolate, Vermont Peanut Butter Company, and Vermont Kale Chips.

I had the pleasure of receiving one of their subscription boxes to review.

Review:

I was SUPER impressed with the package I received. As a Vermonter I really feel like it highlighted Vermont in a great manner. There was a little packet that came with the box that listed a little background info on each company and even contained recipes that use the items.  The box uses 100% recycled paper and sylvacurls(which can be composted) as an alternative to packaging materials. A portion of the profits will be given to Hoboken Grace which is a church who serves the Hoboken Community.
