Discover Our America – With Food Products
Discover Our America sends out boxes each month from a different state. Each box has carefully picked products to help you experience each state in a new way. You also receive a photography-filled overview of the state, highlighting its unique history, geography, culture and places to see.
This box would be great when you are going someplace new and want your family to get excited. It is also great to teach them about all the states in ways they will understand and remember.
Discover Our America is a group of travel-loving Michiganders who wish they had enough available time or funds to visit all 50 of our great states. It occurred to them that even if they did, it’s unlikely they would have enough time or insight to discover and experience what makes each state truly shine.
So the idea came: let’s bring the states right to our doorsteps. They’ve created a fun and unique way to discover, experience and celebrate our America every month.
I received this box from Georgia! It was full of all kinds of great products that we all enjoyed! There is a pamphlet explaining each product. There is also a great book, the one in the picture above. This has colored pictures of the land, towns, places to visit, and lots more. You will learn a lot about the state in this easy to read booklet. I love all their “places to experience”, it gave us ideas of places that we did not know anything about and will be visiting the next time we are there.
These are full-sized products so the whole family can give them a try.
These came sealed in the plastic bag inside the box. These little crackers are small. They are a combination of sweet Vidalia onions and cheese grits. We have tried grits and I must say they are not on our top 10 list. We all tried these and again, not on the top 10. We have traveled a lot and have never seen these anyplace before, so they were very unique.
This is my husband’s favorite. He loves southern sweet tea and so does my granddaughter, Morgan. This will get used a lot this summer. If you have ever visited the south you will soon realize if you want unsweetened tea, you need to tell them because the normal is sweet! This product is sweetened with Splenda so it has zero calories. Each bag flavors a quart, so definitely full-sized!
Another wonderful southern tradition is their barbecue sauces. Everyone in the south makes their own and I think we have tried well over 1,000 restaurants with barbecue specialities. Each one is great and unique. This Georgia’s Vinegar Barbeque Sauce is no different, it is really good. We used ours on chicken and it reminded us of visiting my extended family in Kentucky!
If you have ever been to Georgia then you have seen all the billboards advertising peaches. So it is only fitting to have a delicious Peach Cobbler Jam from Blackberry Patch. We all loved this and will be getting more the next time we are in Georgia!
The final product is the Georgia Grinders All Natural Creamy Peanut Butter. Peanuts are another thing you will find advertised all over Georgia, so this product will be made fresh! It is very good but thinner than most peanut butters on the market. Not soupy thin but not like peanut butter in the store. I was surprised that Desiree tried it and really liked it, just like hubby and I. Because it is packaged so fresh, the flavor is slightly different, but not bad at all. What is really unique is that it is made with peanuts and sea salt, that’s it!
So now that you have seen this box, what do you think of it. I think it is great! I would love to get a box from each state. You can order by subscription or just order a specific state. The next time you are going on vacation, announce where you are going with a Discover Our America box with the family!
