Learned something new just now.
No, seriously. Just now.
I was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I saw an article from The Hungry Dudes called [New Product] Mitten Crate. Well, actually what caught my attention was the announcement that they were giving away TWO Mitten Crates for November. They are picking a winner on November 10, so if this is something you’re interested in get your rear end over there. You don’t have to live in MI!
I gotta tell you, I’m in love with Michigan food. I was born here but we relocated to OK when I was pretty young. So my grandparents would always send my mother a care package a few times a year with her favorite MI treats. When we would come back for summer vacations and holidays we would always pack our cooler with the same treats before packing the car for our 1600 mile trip home.
I’ll say it again. I’m in love with Michigan food.
Sure, I loved Oklahoma food too, but there is something different about Michigan food that I have never been able to put my finger on. Memories? Maybe. Family? Could be. Either way, I was excited to see a subscription box service just for Michigan food. Now that I am back you would think I would have plenty of MI food at my disposal. Not true. Small town living at its finest.
I was a little bummed I had not heard of this service sooner. 🙁 With all the subscription box companies that flood my website emails begging for attention…. 😉
By the looks of their Facebook page the website was launched in August. Ok. Maybe I don’t feel so bad for not hearing about them sooner.
Ok. I do.
In all fairness I live in a
small tiny town an hour north of Detroit. I’m not likely to be privy to any Detroit information this far away which is where all the good foodie information seems to come from with the exception of Traverse City (gosh I love that place!)
Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you guys because I am super-duper excited about Mitten Crate and I want nothing more than to help spread the good word. This isn’t a paid review or any type of sponsorship. Just pure joy and excitement for something great happening in my state!! Check out their Facebook, lots of great product photos there, too.
What a cool crate! Isn’t it funny how we love certain states’ food? (I love food in various parts of NY that you can’t find in NC. Where is my crate for that?) 😉

This crate looks really good. I have not seen this one before. The food looks good.
Shop with Me Mama (Kim) says
how fun and what a great service. Glad you found them!
I didn’t know that Michigan had a lot of foods you couldn’t get elsewhere. What a neat subscription box!
How fun to find food from where you grew up! I miss Pittsburgh food, but it doesn’t transport well!
Ann Bacciaglia says
This looks like a great box. I love to try new foods. i will have to check out Michigan food.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
Well, now that’s a cool little sub box!! One I’d actually enjoy too! 😉
I think I’d actually enjoy and keep this sub box! I get some and man do I get disappointed quick! Michigan food, huh?
What a fun idea! This would be great for a gift for all of my in-laws.

Carly from The Puzzled Palate says

Pauline Cabrera says

My family lives in Michigan and my hubby is from the UP of Michigan – there are some really tasty foods in Michigan. I entered the contest – hope I win.
That looks like a fun gift package. I have not visited Michigan but I would love to visit there.
WOW< that's a lot of great products in there! You scored big!
Travel Blogger says
As a fellow Michigander I LOVE this! So cute.
It’s amazing and they give back to the food bank in Detroit and the area.
Krystal's Kitsch says
That is SO adorable. Anything in a box is all right with me!
I’m hoping to get a subscription for Christmas. It will save me from hunting stuff down at the store. They rotate MI products but not as often as this box would.
That’s packaged so cute! I like the selections in your box, the Crunch Granola is really calling my name.
what a cool crate! I love it! I need to look into this
April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition says
Subscription boxes are so cool! It would be really nice to be able to get a taste of home if you lived far away.
What an awesome delivery! I love getting stuff in the mail like this too!
Looks like you have found a great thing. Thank you for sharing.

I’d never heard of this kit before. Sounds like a great subscription!
