Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
[Thanks so much to Mitten Crate for providing the items featured in this post and giveaway!]

During the holiday season, I often fall into the trap of thinking that if my shopping experiences are too easy, I probably didn't pick out the right gifts to give. After all, if you didn't spend eight weeks making it, two weeks driving all over creation to locate it, or twice your budget paying for it, it's probably too good to be true, right?

To all my fellow gift perfectionists out there: Stop right now and take a deep breath. You are making this way more difficult than it needs to be.

One of my favorite things to give others is the gift of food. No matter who the recipient is or where they live, there is some type of edible treat out there that's bound to suit his or her fancy. And when that treat is a piece of home (whether yours, theirs, or both), that just makes the whole deal even sweeter.

Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
In a market saturated with subscription boxes, Mitten Crate always stands out to me because of its commitment to curating quality Michigan goods. Over the past few years, I've discovered some of my favorite local fare through Mitten Crate, and often gift and recommend many of those products to others as a result. The gist is this: You can order a monthly subscription box, one-time box, or even hand-pick individual products for a personally-curated order. And it's all delivered right to your front door.

This season, I'm bringing you an unboxing of one of my latest Mitten Crates (you can find more unboxings in these posts and periodically on my Instagram page), including details and photos to help you see what kinds of products you might find in a typical box. Plus, I've teamed up with Mitten Crate to bring you guys a big giveaway (THREE people will win!), so keep reading for details below.



MITTEN CRATE UNBOXING: WHAT'S INSIDE

Pop Daddy Pretzels (Garlic Parmesan Pretzel Sticks)

Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
I've become well-acquainted with Pop Daddy's kettle corn through Mitten Crate, and now the Whitmore Lake snack company has graced us all with Garlic Parmesan Pretzel Sticks! According to the card I received in my recent crate, these taste great when dipped in sweet jalapeño mustard (keep reading below for the perfect pairing)!

Oh My Lolli! (Xtreme Sour Palooza Lollirocks)

Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
These handmade Xtreme Sour Palooza lollirocks from Oh My Lolli! are fun for kids and candy-loving adults alike. Free from nuts, soy, dairy, and gluten, the candies in this stocking-friendly package are also a great option for people with allergies.

Crack in a Sack (Pumpkin Spice Flavor)

Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
Addicting as all-get-out, Crack in a Sack is a melt-in-your-mouth, gift-ready treat that's also gluten free. This pumpkin spice variety is likely seasonal, but you can't go wrong with the tried and true Original (caramel flavor), either.

Chunk Nibbles "Candy Coated Bliss"

Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
Chunk Nibbles pulls you in immediately with its tagline: "Candy Coated Bliss." Who can turn down that offer? A frosted combo of pretzels, nuts, and corn squares, this sweet treat makes a lovely party dish (and it'll save you the time you'd otherwise spend making that snowman mix!).

Backwoods Mustard Company (Sweet Jalapeno Mustard - Mild)

Mitten Crate Unboxing: What's Inside December 2018 (+ Holiday Giveaway!)
Ah, here we are—the complementary sidekick to our aforementioned pretzels! This Sweet Jalapeno Mustard from the Backwoods Mustard Company was developed up north two generations ago as a family deer camp recipe. The camp classic is touted as the perfect adornment for everything from smoked ribs to party dip.
