Subscription Box Review
My first glimpse inside the Box from Misfits Market for the week. It’s important to note that all the packaging from Misfits Market is biodegradable and recyclable.
I like that they tuck everything in really securely. There’s also some cold bags that they include as well to ensure everything is as fresh as possible.
So what is all this stuff?
In lieu of sending out a list in each box of the items that we received you can find a list of the “rescued” fruits and veggies online. I do have the option of customizing my box so I had a pretty good idea what would be included in my package for the week.
The first item in my box are these two bio bags of green beans. I really like that Misfits Market doubles up on items in their larger boxes to accommodate for larger families like ours that may not have enough for a meal with just one bag. Another important thing to note is that all the produce in the Misfits Market package is non-gmo and organic!
The next item in our box is collards. These I always select when I have the opportunity – we slow cook them with a bit of brown sugar, vinegar, bacon and stock and they come out so fantastic! There were two bunches included in our Misfits Market Box for this week.
A new thing I’ve been selecting in my past couple boxes are grapefruits – this week I received two as I have in my past boxes. I love to have these for breakfast just cut in half! No sugar and I just scoop it out! They are so refreshing!
Next up are two rather small acorn squashes. I am not sure if this is why they were considered “ugly” in fact a lot of the items in my Misfits Market Boxes confuse me on why they were considered ugly! Having said that I love acorn squashes and think they are the absolute best of all the squashes out there! We slice them and roast them with a bit of butter, salt, garlic and pepper!
There were also SEVEN limes in my package. We really can’t get enough of lemons and limes in our house, they are the best for sauces and I just love the bright pick me up – plus ZEST! I was really surprised that there were seven included as well!
There were also two lemons that I selected for my box for the week. These are GIHUGIC! They do look a bit wonky but are absolutely edible! I love lemons and so do my older girls, we all really do just snack on them but of course they are great to cook with as well!
Next in my package are these two heads of green cabbage! These again are rather small but there are two … so there’s that! I love cabbage raw, cooked not so much. I typically make a very simple cabbage salad by shedding the cabbage very finely, adding some dill, onion, white or red wine vinegar and a drop or two of oil. It’s one of my absolute favorites!
Then there was one yellow bell pepper in my package. Kind of an odd / random addition but I did choose bell peppers (mostly because they are so versatile). We’ll definitely be enjoying this one!
I also selected red onions to be in my box for the week. There were three that were included in total. I think these are the best onions, the bite of them raw is fantastic making them great for sandwiches, salads and other fresh dishes.
One of the fruit varieties that I received in my box for the week are these six Gold Delicious apples. To be honest these may be gone already. My kids burn through fresh fruit which is absolutely fine by me. Once again, these look totally normal so maybe there were too many and the markets couldn’t hold them? I’m not sure why else they’d be considered “ugly”.
Next are two small summer squashes. These are tasty sauteed or grilled up in foil packets. I’ll be honest we ate these already with the green beans. We simply sauteed them all in a pan with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. They were super tasty!
One of the final items in my Misfits Market Box for the week are these two beets. This isn’t much but it’s just enough for my lunch! I know I say this every time I talk about them but glazing these with vinegar, sugar and corn starch is the absolute best way to enjoy them!
I also received six clementines. This is another item that won’t last very long in my house. These were delicious, both fresh and juice! We eat these just so, they make great finger foods for kids!
The final item in our Misfits Market Box for the week are these six Russet Potatoes. I’ll be honest I select Russet because they don’t have to be peeled and I’m lazy sometimes!
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me in great condition in this week’s Misfits Market Box. I should note that my box did arrive one day late due to Coronavirus.
Quality: I know this box is “Ugly” but I find the selection and quality to be top notch. Particularly considering the fact that everything is organic and non-gmo.
Curation: Since I was able to select each of the items in my box I have to say that the curation was excellent!
