Giveaway: A Kitchen Box + Discount Code

October 20, 2014

One trend that I’m very much enjoying these days is the rise of the curated subscription box. It used to be that subscriptions were limited to books, magazines, music, and occasionally, cheese. These days, you can sign up to receive all manner of items on monthly or quarterly basis.

A Kitchen Box is one such subscription box company. They focus on products and recipes designed to inspire you in the kitchen and they make sure to include something to see, taste, learn, and try in every box.

Recently, I teamed up with the folks at A Kitchen Box on a Food in Jars-themed box and it turned out even more beautifully than I could have imagined.

The box includes a gorgeously printed copy of my recipe for Orange Tomato and Smoked Paprika Jam, a pretty picture postcard of that jam, a packet of Sweet Smoked Paprika from Whole Spice, two Le Parfait 324 ml French Jam Storage Jars (you treat these like any other lug lid jar), canning labels, music downloads, and a grey flour sack towel. They also donate $1 from each purchase to Rogue Valley Orphanage Outreach.

Brooke and Ang from A Kitchn Box have offered one of these Food In Jars Box for this week’s giveaway. Additionally, they’re offering all Food in Jars readers $10 off the first month of any new AKB Subscription, along with a free Mini Box (while their limited stash lasts). If you want in on the deal, use the code ‘foodinjars’ in the coupon field at check-out.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me about either something to which you subscribe, or something you wish you could subscribe to (I once had a subscription to toilet paper through Amazon. It was an amazing way to never run out).
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm east coast time on Saturday, October 25, 2014. The winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog by the end of the day on Sunday, October 26, 2014.
  3. Giveaway is open to US residents.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left on the blog, I cannot accept submissions via email.

Disclosure: A Kitchen Box sent me one of the Food in Jars boxes for photography purposes. No additional compensation was provided.

  • I would love to subscribe to OliveBox or any of the other craft/stationery-themed monthly subscription boxes. I also just got a subscription to Martha Stewart Living for the first time in my life…at 35 years old.

  • i would love a pie of the month subscription, give me something to look forward to without having to make it myself

  • I tried a snack subscription once, but it was not nearly enough to have four snacks for a month for our family, especially for the price. I do love subscribe type shopping as it is for items I want at prices I want!

  • When my husband and I first moved to New York City, we got a subscription to The New York Times. We loved it, but it got too costly each week and we found we weren’t always reading it, so we stopped. Sometimes we think about getting just the Sunday paper again.

  • I would love to subscribe to a kitchen box! I am also subscribed to Southern Living, but am disappointed by that in recent months, so need to find a new magazine to get. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • I’m increasingly disappointed to with my subscriptions to Martha Stewart Living… they were much better a decade (or more) ago. I would love to subscribe to a service that delivered fresh bread on Saturday mornings to make amazing toast.

  • I am a magazine junky and subscribe to more than I can keep up with. I’d love a knitters box to arrive every month with a little project. Oh – and kitchen box sounds pretty great. I’m going to check them out now!

  • Fruit, my aunt gave me a years subscription to fruit. I think now that I better understand preservation I’d have appreciated it much more and much longer….way too many pears.

    Other subscriptions, wine, books, vitamins. Retired now and rediscovered shopping.

  • What a fun idea! I am a knitter and would love to subscribe to a sock yarn club. But I love this idea of the jars and recipe. Thanks!

  • I receive a couple of magazines each month and our local weekly newspaper. Recently, we started getting 5 gallon water jugs for a cooler in hubby’s home business. The kitchen box sounds fun!

  • I would love to subscribe to coconut sugar on amazon- probably should, but never brave enough to hit the button 🙂

  • A food in jars subscription! To have one jar of a fun and interesting jam/pickle/chutney arrive each month would be amazing! Your recipes look delicious, but I’m always reluctant to try them because I know I’d be the only one in the family to eat them, which makes it hard to justify the work and the mess. But, if I could subscribe and they would magically arrive, that’s another story…

  • We subscribe to two newspapers and several magazines. Several years ago I gave my parents a “fruit of the month” as an anniversary gift and they really loved it. A LONG time ago I subscribed to a monthly make up box–anyone else remember Cosmetique in the 1970s??

  • I agree with another of your readers- I would love a Food in Jars subscription with a couple of jars, a recipe, interesting labels etc

  • I currently subscribe to various magazines ranging from gardening through cooking to life and history. Would love to subscribe to a cleaning service or a garden helper or maybe a monthly general handyman…

  • It’s not in the budget now, but I would love to get a subscription to Field Notes notebooks for myself and as gifts.

  • I have a subscription to Birchbox. I’ve had it for almost 2 years now I think and I keep thinking I should cancel it, but it’s so fun to get beauty samples every month and it’s only $10. I’m really into the subscription box thing!

  • I have a subscription for gluten free cereal through Amazon. GF cereal is crazy expensive and this saves me lots of money.

  • I subscribe to Seed Savers and Organic Gardening to help me grow the best vegetables I possibly can for myself and my family.

  • In a perfect world, I would have monthly subscriptions to yarn and whiskey. In the world I ACTUALLY live, a subscription to toilet paper doesn’t seem like such a bad idea!

  • I currently only have *one* subscription going — a sock yarn at the end of each month from The Painted Tiger. No magazines, no products, just one scrumptious yarn, every month. I may give A Kitchen Box a try, though…sounds like fun!

  • I once subscribed to themed box full of things made in our state, it was a lot of fun! And too funny you mentioned the toilet paper, I use Amazon subscribe and save for toilet paper and paper towels each month. 😉

  • I subscribed to a company called Vegan Cuts for a while but the boxes started getting more “chips and snack-y” for my liking so I’m looking for a new box to subscribe to. I’ll have to check out A Kitchen Box!

  • I have two cooking magazine subscriptions as well as a subscription for razor blades (which is awesome and so much cheaper than buying refills at the store!).

  • I would call my CSA (community supported agriculture) box a subscription! I get a new box of freshly harvested veggies sent to me every two weeks from a local farm.

  • I would LOVE a subscription like this! I would also love a wine of the month club subscription. Or flowers. Or fruit.

  • We have subscriptions to magazines but the more essential one was to Amazon for coffee! Never run out. I never compared the price for toilet paper, I’ll check it out!

  • I’ve recently started subscribing to a Earth-friendly, non-toxic make-up oriented company. So far, lots of fun nail polish!

  • I subscribe to delivery of diapers/wipes so that I don’t have to make a special trip to the store or worry about running out. A Kitchen Box subscription sounds much more fun – definitely going to check it out 🙂

  • Ha – never really had a subscription to anything. I think new foods/snacks would be a fun one! I would look forward to mail.

  • Now that everyone is done with diapers in my house (happy dance!!) I no longer subscribe to diaper delivery….but it was heavenly when I did. No lugging boxes of diapers home from the store and monthly giant boxes for my children to turn into space ships, cities, race cars, you name it. I do love my Cooking Light subscription right now, though. 🙂

  • I love to have magazine subscriptions, since I am pretty much guaranteed quick reading material in my home at all times.

  • I’ve seen the rise of subscription boxes and have looked into some of them but haven’t actually tried any of them. It’s been a while but I really enjoyed my subscription to Reader’s Digest when I got it!

  • I’ve never done the subscription thing, but I’ve been leaning towards it lately. A wine subscription would be amazing, but I’ve seen where chefs are getting in the game too. How wonderful would it be to have a box curated by Mario Batali? Or Giada De Laurentiis? (I love my Italians!!)

  • I subscribe to a wine club from a local winery. Every quarter I get 3 wines from their current in season stash. They have a pickup party every quarter for the people who subscribe to go and pick up your wines with cheese and fruit and wine tastings of all their wines. It’s incredible and I love it!

  • I never thought I would need it but Dollar Shave Club is a subscription based service for razors! I never run out, I’m never using dull blades… and honestly, I’ve even gifted subscriptions to a few people (girls included!) who love it!

  • I subscribed to Stitchfix for a few months. I think the best part was the anticipation of getting a package (just for me) in the mail each month 🙂 Something dealing with food would be much more up my alley (and practical, too) 🙂

  • I subscribe to Nature Box and a local wine club. I love getting healthful snacks every month that I can chose and quarterly wine selection from the vineyard.

  • More cooking and home decor magazines than I count. At least 200 blogs. Two quarterly wine subscriptions — Southern Hemisphere for great finds from below the equator and Touring & Tasting for just about everywhere else!

  • I can’t think of any subscriptions I currently have. I wish I had a cheese and/or chocolate of the month subscription, or something cooking-related. I love trying new foods.

  • I subscribe to Fine Cooking and Mother Earth News. Formerly part of CSA but my own garden took over for that. Would love to have a themmed subscription to foodie items.

  • I subscribed to suburban organics (I think it’s called something else now) and it was awesome–like a csa that arrives in the mail. only stopped because i had trouble with the delivery guy getting through my work security.

  • We subscribe to a CSA box every couple of weeks. (From the Farmer) And an ever decreasing selection of magazines, ‘Organic Gardening’, ‘Urban Farm’, etc. And we have an every 8 weeks subscription to The Honest Company for an assortment of household supplies. We recently moved from the West Coast to the East Coast and it seems subscriptions are the only way to find the things that we love or need here.

  • I have a subscription for beauty products I use so I don’t run out. It’s nice not to have to worry about remembering to order.

  • Every year I plan to join a CSA and then I never get around to it, so that’s for sure on the list. I think a really neat idea, though I have no idea whether it exists, would be a spice club that includes a new spice or seasoning every month along with recipe suggestions.

  • I mostly just subscribe to magazines…. but Amazon will get their hooks in me yet for all of the pantry staple stuff!

  • I consider my various CSA memberships to be subscriptions and that’s how I explain it to people unfamiliar with the concept– though gladly, more and more people know what this is! Meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, grain, dairy. I get most of my food through these groups now and it’s fantastic. It’s a great feeling of connection and the quality is high.

  • The fresh produce boxes sound great!!!! I would love to find something “reasonable” to send to the grandchildren every couple months. I am only subscribing to magazines right now.

  • I wish I could subscribe to a year-round csa that was about 1/4 or 1/6 of a regular share size so I could make good use of every vegetable every week!

  • My CSA subscription is delivered each Friday morning. An added pleasure is that I can change the items in my box to meet the needs of a new recipe. That and a few magazines is what I get on a regular basis.

  • I’m gonna jump on the CSA bandwagon. I love my “subscription” and makes my life so much more delicious, nutritious, and overall convenient!

  • I love my subscription to Women’s Health magazine and on line (besides Food in Jars) I read knitting paradise and Rue La La everyday that I can. Just made chokecherry yesterday

  • I subscribe to JustFab because it gets me super cheap shoes and clothes, though I’m also subscribed to cat food through Amazon, haha. This seems way more fun than that, though.

  • I have a boring magazine subscription at the moment. Oh I also belong to a weekly CSA, but to never run out of toilet paper….

  • I “subscribe” to local milk – as in, I stop by the farm and help myself out of the tank whenever I like. 🙂

  • I wish I had a subscription for the kind of dog food I use. I need fifty pounds every two weeks- how great would it be to have it delivered right to my door!

  • I subscribe to a wine delivery service. It’s a fun way to try new wines that I don’t think I would try otherwise. Some I have loved. Some I have not loved. But, it’s been fun! Plus, we always have a bottle or two on hand when we get invited to someone’s home for dinner so we always have something to bring the host/hostess.

  • I currently have a subscription to Ipsy Glam bags curated by Michelle Phan. It’s a fun way to get full and delux sample/travel sized beauty products from various brands to try out based on a profile you fill out (skin type, hair and eye and skin color, what types of products you like or don’t like, etc.). A kitchen subscription box sounds amazingly fun! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  • I used to subscribe to the Citrus Lane boxes for my kids and they were SO much fun! I think I enjoyed them more than the kids did…

  • I am currently saving up to get a subscription to Stitch Fix. I also can’t wait until next wedding season to use “Rent the Runway”!!

    But I’m loving the foodie-centric boxes! I had never heard of this!

  • My husband gave me a birthday present of a year subscription for a monthly artistic letter from Paris. It touches my heart every time I get one.

  • I subscribed to Birchbox for a while – it was a very fun way to try new beauty products (and came with a box handy for gifts and storage!).

  • I subscribe to Stitch Fix, clothes picked for me by a stylist. Through Amazon I subscribe to sugar cubes for my coffee. I also subscribe to magazines that I get through Zinio on my iPad.

  • I subscribe to Sunset Magazine and both a digital magazine for quilting (like I need more quilting inspirations!) and knitting.

  • I subscribe to this service called graze which sends you cute little snacks. It’s helped me get avoid my office vending machine a lot more…

  • I subscribe to 2 things I love. sends me a box of 4 portioned, healthy snacks (dried fruit, seeds, whole grains, etc). I get it delivered to work. I also love, it’s like Netflix for clothes, size 10-32.
