Hello, Michigan! Discover Our America’s inaugural box contained products to help celebrate and experience all that is Michigan.

Inside look at the booklet:
I love the concept of this monthly subscription, getting to check out fun foods from different states. Discover Our America was just launched in April with Michigan being their very first box. While I had heard of several of the companies, I didn’t realize they had ties to Michigan.
Each monthly box is $39.95 and includes free shipping. I thought I should mention that this box had a value of $22.12 and was missing one product, Zzang! What the Fudge? Bar from Zingerman’s Candy ($6), that would have brought the retail value to $28.12. I have reviewed many subscription services and normally the value exceeds the cost of the box. This is the only Discover Our America box I received, so I am unable to see if future boxes had a retail value that exceeded the cost of the subscription.
