Batch Charleston Subscription Box Review

April 8, 2015

Since signing up to be part of the Eat Local Challenge with Lowcountry Local First, I’ve been on the lookout for cool, local Charleston goodies. I happened to stumble upon Batch Charleston, a subscription box that curates Charleston food products according to a common theme.

This month’s theme was “Just Brunch” and included goods that one would eat during brunch time.

Now if this doesn't pump you up, what will?!

When you first open up the box, there’s a sheet that highlights the products and the purveyors, so you can get to know a little bit more about the products included that month.

Everything comes packed nicely and attractively, and I was so pumped up about the Geechie boy grits. Those are going to come in handy when I have company over this weekend!

What to use first?!

The first thing I broke into was the Benne Wafers. They were delicious.

So yummy.

So yummy. Very selfie. Wow.

The coffee was yummy and rich and was just what I needed to wake me up in the morning.

And it was especially delicious in my coffee mug from the Charleston Tea Plantation!

I haven’t gotten into the jam yet, but I can’t wait to grab some bread from Browns Court Bakery and slather it up!

I love me some strawberry preserves.

I’m having friends in from out of town this weekend, and I’m going to cook up these grits with red onions from Ambrose Farms, butter and garlic from Blackbird Market, and maybe some cheese from the Johns Island Farmers Market!

All in all, I was pretty happy with my Batch subscription. April’s theme is “On The Verandah” and May’s is “Picnic Basket,” which both sound super fun. I’m especially excited for August’s “Chef’s Choice” box. The boxes ship for $34.99 a month and includes free shipping, so it’s a great way to open yourself up to new local experiences!
