From makeup lovers to dog owners, it seems like there’s a subscription box for everyone these days! For a few years now, I’ve heard great things about Mitten Crate, a food-themed subscription box that’s filled with Michigan-made snacks, recipe starters, and other edible goodies. The concept is a fun idea that’s tailored not only for gift giving, but also for people who enjoy discovering and sampling unique, thoughtfully-curated products.

How Mitten Crate Works

There are a few ways to enjoy Mitten Crate:

1.) A one-time delivery to you or a friend

2.) An ongoing subscription with free shipping (that can be canceled at any time)

3.) A three-month subscription (receive a discount for purchasing three months at once!)

Once you sign up, Mitten Crate will send a box filled with a surprise assortment of Michigan-made food products right to your door (subscription orders ship out on the 15th of each month, while one-time orders ship weekly). All you have to do after ordering is simply sit back, wait for your delivery to arrive, then enjoy!

Mitten Crate was kind enough to send me their latest box to try out, along with a special coupon code and giveaway for you, my lovely readers! Read on for a taste of what types of products you could find inside your Mitten Crate and learn how you can scoop up a FREE subscription for you AND a friend!

The Unboxing: What I Received In My Mitten Crate

Sugar Daddy Premium Kettle Corn (Pop Daddy Popcorn)

Michigan-Made Gift Idea: Mitten Crate Subscription Box - [via Wading in Big Shoes]
Brad and I are on a kettle corn kick right now, so we were both excited to see this little bag of Pop Daddy kettle corn upon opening our Mitten Crate! Specializing in GMO-free, gluten-free popcorn, Pop Daddy sources its corn directly from two family farms—one in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and one in Sunman, Indiana—before popping the final product at its manufacturing location in Highland, Michigan. Made with tender, premium yellow popcorn, Pop Daddy’s Sugar Daddy kettle corn is created in small batches to ensure a great texture and flavor that’s unlike popcorn produced by larger manufacturers.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (Cooper Street Cookies)

Based in Birmingham, Michigan, family-powered Cooper Street Cookies merges a great-grandmother’s recipe with a commitment to using healthier, all-natural ingredients. Just one of eight Cooper Street Cookies flavors, this oatmeal raisin variety is dairy-free, nut-free, low-sugar, low-sodium, low-calorie, and free of trans fats. Cut into long, thin strips, these crunchy cookies are very similar to biscotti and extremely addictive.


Pumpkin 5-Spice Marshmallows (The Detroit Marshmallow Co.)

These melt-in-your-mouth, Pumpkin 5-Spice marshmallows from the Detroit Marshmallow Co. are not your average s’mores toppers. Handcrafted at the company’s micro-bakery on Mack Avenue in Detroit, these sweet treats are composed of all-natural, organic-when-possible ingredients that are sourced mostly in metro Detroit. This ensures both incredibly-fresh flavor and support of local Michigan food artisans, classic brands, and growers.


Hot Cocoa With Peruvian Cocoa & Dominican Ground Chocolate (Fresh Coast Chocolate Co.)

Michigan-Made Gift Idea: Mitten Crate Subscription Box - [via Wading in Big Shoes]
I’m excited to try this cold-weather treat! Featuring Peruvian cocoa and Dominican ground chocolate, this hot cocoa mix from Fresh Coast Chocolate Co. is created in small batches in Traverse City. Ethically-traded and sustainably-grown cacao beans are turned into chocolate, which is then transformed into a full-flavor hot cocoa mix. With organic ingredients and no added milk powder, this cocoa is also naturally gluten-free and vegan-friendly.

Detroit Jerk Seasoning (Detroit Spice Company)

Michigan-Made Gift Idea: Mitten Crate Subscription Box - [via Wading in Big Shoes]
Anything that makes cooking dinner a little easier (and faster) is a home run in my book! Originally developed and sold at Detroit’s Eastern Market, Detroit Spice Company products deliver unique flavors that are a tribute to the Motor City’s diverse cultures and tastes. All that flavor in one little container—can’t beat that!


Chocolate Covered Dried Tart Cherries (Benjamin Twiggs)

Michigan-Made Gift Idea: Mitten Crate Subscription Box - [via Wading in Big Shoes]
It’s no secret that Traverse City is known for cherries, so naturally, this Traverse-City based company has some of the tastiest chocolate-covered cherries around! Founded in 1966, Benjamin Twiggs focuses on the finest local ingredients, including products that revolve around not only cherries, but also blueberries, raspberries, and other bountiful Michigan crops.
