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 have a graze subscription that I love. I’d really love a subscription to chocolate chip cookies since I am a self – proclaimed cookie monster!

  • Tea. I usually buy what i like in large quantities but that means I don’t often try anything new.
    A crochet subscription would be nice but then I’d have to find a home for everything I made.

  • We used to have a toilet paper subscription, too! We weren’t very good at figuring out the right schedule, so we stopped it when we have two whole cases in the attic. But now we have an amazon subscription for dog food. The rate of consumption on that is much easier to calculated. It’s so nice to no longer have to make emergency runs at meals times.

  • I wish I had a subscription to a monthly craft item. I could make one craft object a month that would satisfy and inspire my creativity but not boggle me down since I would have a month to complete it!

  • I subscribe (for my lactose intolerant husband) to Digestive Advantage from Amazon. Every three months the shipment shows up in my mailbox. No more scrambling to find it locally, which is almost impossible.

  • I subscribe to a CSA where I get one local chicken every two weeks. I also subscribe to The Heirloom Gardener magazine. 🙂

  • I’m intrigued by subscriptions these days.. I recently signed up for Stitch Fix, which sends 5 clothing items a month – I’ve gotten 4 boxes so far and loved them all. I’m also a knitter and have a monthly subscription for a ‘skein of the month’ club from a cashmere club. So the idea of a kitchen subscription is very appealing….

  • The only thing I currently subscribe to are a few magazines, but I would love to subscribe to one of those monthly wardrobe sites where they send you fun new clothing and jewelry to try every few months.

  • I subscribe to Nature Box ( They send you a box of snacks every month. You can pick them out or the company will send you a surprise box. I like them because they donate food for every box you order and they have great tasting, more natural snacks. It is way better for me than the vending machine and since I have limited time to make things at home, it is a life saver.

  • I wish I could subscribe to a wine club of some sort – an easy way to check out new wines. OR, there’s a Bark Box for dogs that looks fantastic!

  • I love the idea of subscriptions–getting a surprise in the mail every month–but I never seem to get around to signing up for one. Maybe the kitchen box will be the exception!

  • Just got a snack food subscription! I’m excited to try different healthier snack foods and to get fun mail each month!

  • I subscribe to Tea Time magazine. Love all the scone recipes- savory and sweet with jams to pair and tea suggestions for each.

  • I have an Amazon subscription for everything from toilet paper to toothpaste! It’s amazing! For Christmas, I plan to get my husband a salami of the month subscription.

  • I have a CSA subscription for vegetables and fruit. The small batch plum jam recipe of Marissa’s saved my plums this summer! I can’t wait to eat the resulting jam!


  • I have numerous magazine subscriptions, but I would LOVE to have some kind of CSA or fruit subscription – where tons of seasonal fruits and veg show up at my door waiting to be canned.

  • I subscribe to magazines, as I am a magazine junkie. HGTV Magazine, O magazine, Readers Digest, Mother Earth News, More…you name it.

  • Loving reading these comments. So many things I never knew you could subscribe to! I would love a hand bag subscription or a birch box subscription. For now it is Portland Monthly Magazine and Better Homes and Gardens.

  • This post is making me realize I need to subscribe to more things 🙂 I love the idea of a recipe-inspired subscription service!

  • I’m part of a flower CSA, which is lovely. i think i would benefit greatly from a “seasonally appropriate footwear” subscription.

  • I would love to have one of those monthly wine subscriptions. Yummy! The box looks like a fantastic collection of goodies-thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  • Last year I subscribed to a snack box which was delivered bi-weekly to work and was a nice way to get new treats.

  • Ohh the Kitchen box is such a cool idea, thanks for the sweet chance btw!) Sooo… I have two really wonderful subscriptions that I pretty much adore… one is this wine club that send a different bottle ever month & the other is a rad company that sends something chocolate every other month… the months that have both are yummy! Lol)

  • Wow! that is the cutest box subscription I’ve ever seen!
    In my time I have subscribed to a coffee club (i don’t drink coffee, but it came with an awesome drip maker), a specialty food subscription, a book subscription for my girls when they were younger. And admit it, who hasn’t had a Martha Stewart Living magazine subscription?!

  • This is very appealing to me. I’ve been wanting to subscribe to a local organic fruit n veggie box, I might jus do it. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  • I subscribe to a bi-monthly shipment of random candy from Japan! They have so much interesting stuff that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world, and while I could buy it online on my own, I wouldn’t know what to choose. I love the surprise component.

  • I don’t currently have any subscriptions, but I think a seasonal seed subscription would be fun to add variety to the garden.

  • Besides magazines, I have a monthly subscription for tea (, and I’ve even given gift subscriptions to various people.

  • Just discovered
    Great subscription service they send you GMO-free, organic snacks. Every box they send out they donate one to local book bank. I got my first box last week and had great snacks from companies I had not heard of and products I’ve wanted to try. I got the first box free and every month after is only $10. Thanks

  • I subscribe to a couple of magazines, but would love to have a subscription to A Kitchen Box! It sounds like fun, and I love to play in the kitchen with new ingredients and things 🙂

  • I think the last thing I subscribed to was carfax when I was looking for a car. I let my csa box go because they were more concerned about their beer and wine making than they were with the produce that they were sourcing for the box, one gets tired of receiving rotten tomatoes and lemons.

  • A Kitchen box subscription sounds wonderful! I currently subscribe to several cooking mags and have a standing Amazon order for Weleda Skin Food- best dry skin cream ever!

  • I subscribe to:
    1) My local CSA: Every other Friday I pick up a gorgeous bundle of fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables, enough to last me two weeks.
    2) My monthly hair color: have you tried ? They custom mix your color and ship it to you according to your requested frequency. Waaaaay better than the drugstore stuff!!
    3) Dog Food: Through Amazon I subscribe to monthly delivery of my dog’s great big 30-pound sacks of dog food. Having the UPS guy drop it in my foyer sure beats driving to the store, lifting it off the shelf and into a basket, then up out of the basket onto the checkout counter, then BACK INTO the basket, then lift it from the basket into my car, drive home and (final heavy lift!),drag it into the house!!
    Yep, I love scheduled subscription services!!

  • Love my Amazon Prime membership for everything and also my son’s diaper subscription at the Honest Company that are delivered right to my door.

  • We belong to two wine clubs… I would love a subscription to a coffee club….try out new blends, varieties of beans! Need to look into it!

  • Like most people, I subscribe to magazines (waaaaaay to many) and newspapers. I do have a subscription to Consumer Reports and that has save us may times. My favorite subscription is to Amazon Prime. I use the music to get me through the work day and what canning maven doesn’t love getting jars shipped free only to receive them in two days?!

  • I had a wine club membership and that was fabulous! It was like Christmas when the fedex guy showed up. I also subscribe to Martha Stewart living and cooks illustrated magazines. Pick me!

  • I subscribe to really fancy men’s razors. They cost a whole heck of lot less than the women’s ones in the store.

  • I wish I could subscribe to Ibuprofen. It’s something that we use regularly and never seem to have when the big headache hits.

  • I would love to subscribe to all those wonderful food magazines but it will just be a waste as I do not have the time to read them all. I was given a subscription to Real Simple and Food and Wine magazines. I love them both!

  • I would love a subscription service for toothbrushes and toothpaste, so I never have to remember to buy them regularly!

  • I subscribe to cat food on Amazon, and you’re right – it’s a great way to never run out! Love the Kitchen Box idea, thanks for sharing it with us.

  • What a great giveaway! I used to subscribe to Quilty Box which had a new project and supplies each month. Unfortunately they no longer are doing it.

  • I would love a book subscription – one that knew how long it would take you to finish each book, and just what you’d be in the mood for next!

  • I have a nail polish subscription. I have too much nail polish! But it’s still cheaper than weekly or even monthly pedicures. And I can decline a box anytime.

  • I subscribe to a Pet Box each month for my cat. I also have a subscription to Yoga Journal. I would love to check out a Kitchen Box. The products are amazing. Thank you for the opportunity to win!!!

  • I have a CSA subscription and totally love it! We get a plentiful amount of veggies and I freeze what we won’t eat up in time.

  • i subscribe to both a Community Supported Fishery and a meat CSA. Both are so great!

    Also way too many magazines, of course!

  • I’ve been thinking about getting the “bean club” subscription from Rancho Gordo beans. Yum! Plus my toddler loves beans.

  • I subscribe to so many magazines! But I would love a cheese of the month (like Zingerman’s) or gourmet food of the month subscription.

  • We have 2 wine club subscriptions. With 2 little ones in the house, we don’t get out wine tasting very much and this brings the wine to us!

  • I do a “wintertime CSA” of local fruits and veggies that someone else froze at their peak of ripeness. It’s a little bit of sunshine each month during the long winter.

  • I subscribe to–I get two credits a month for audio books (most books are 1 credit). This is great so I can read while I cook, clean, knit, sew, etc! Love it!!

  • I subscribe to the Oprah magazine and the local newspaper. I love the idea of subscriptions. Who wouldn’t want to see a lovely box each month with all kinds of goodies inside? Your kitchen box caught my eye! I’m in love with the jars and their lids!

  • I have a subscription for dog food so my dogs never have to go hungry because I’m a ditz. 🙂 I also have an Amazon subscribe & save for toilet paper, which is very helpful!

  • We subscribe for a favorite breakfast cereal that is rarely stocked locally, those great Corazonas oatmeal cookies with plant sterols, better price on cats’ Breeze litterbox supplies, and TP – so nice not to lug it around!

  • Boringly enough, I only subscribe to magazines.

    But I have been intrigued by a number of possibilities.

    Block a month quilt kits.

    Fresh flowers.


    Plants and bulbs.

    I think of all of them the quilt block a month would be the one I would most likely subscribe to.

    Until now.

    I just got my vintage French copper jam pan yesterday and I’m itching to use it. So a food in jars subscription from the kitchen box is sounding pretty good to me right now.

  • I subscribe to Crave. Healthy snacks arrive once a month and my boys look forward to it each time. Deep in our teen/pre-teen fussing and fighting years, they put all else aside to decide which ones they’ll eat first and then they actually SHARE!!! I could kiss the CraveCrew for that part alone!

  • I would love to subscribe to Stitch Fix somewhat more consistently. I’ve ordered a couple boxes for fun, but the clothes are a bit expensive so I’ve held off on really committing.

  • Have just relocated clear across the country so have put my Amazon subscriptions on hold for the time being. Daughter just learning to can, so this sounds like a super idea for her birthday or Christmas gift!

  • I subscribe to a Fiber of the Month club. I spin wool into yarn with a spinning wheel or sometimes with a spindle:)
