Let’s see what’s inside the October 2018 “Bake” GlobeIn box!
Everything was shipped in a larger than usual green & white GlobeIn box.
A peek inside!
A small info booklet featured full color photos and background information on all of the products included in the box, as well as the artisans who created them.
Enamel Mixing Bowl, India ($15)
When I saw the theme reveal photo for October, I immediately noticed this bowl and was so excited to find that it was included in the box. I absolutely love the white and gray color scheme with the pop of blue along the rim. The bowl is made of enamel painted stainless steel and measures 8 inches in diameter and about 3-4 inches tall. Perfect for mixing, using for popcorn, or corralling fresh fruit.
Ceramic Sugar Canister, Morocco ($18)
Store your sugar in style with this hand-painted ceramic canister made by Moroccan artisans. The piece measures roughly 6 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. I love how it’s even signed on the bottom by who I’m guessing is the artist who painted it. 🙂
Olive Wood French Rolling Pin, Tunisia ($20)
I’ve been wanting to make homemade cut-out cookies with my girls for a couple years now, but it always seemed so daunting to have to dig out and maneuver our big ol’ rolling pin. Yes, I find baking that intimidating. 😉 However — now that I have this simple, yet brilliant French rolling pin I have no more excuses! Made from solid, hand-carved olive wood, the rounded edge of this design ensures no annoying indents or marks on your dough. It’s also a lot lighter and easier to store away. 😀
Ceramic Measuring Cup, Tunisia ($18)
Another hand-painted ceramic piece, this 1-cup measuring cup is not only functional, but equally decorative as well. Use it to easily measure dry goods like flour, sugar, and cocoa powder.
Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons, India ($12)
I already own a couple sets of measuring spoons, but this is by far the nicest. Made of durable stainless steel, this 4-spoon set includes 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, and 1 tbsp. A great kitchen essential that will get many years of use in our home.
Luna Rica Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar (Bonus item)
GlobeIn also included a bonus item in October’s box — A Luna Rica bar made with wholesome ingredients including cashew butter, fruit, and nuts. It’s gluten free, non-GMO, and vegan-friendly!
With the big baking season just around the corner, October’s “Bake” themed GlobeIn box has me all excited for the holidays (and the yummy treats they bring!). My favorite items this time were the enamel stainless steel mixing bowl, stainless steel measuring spoons, and olive wood French rolling pin. I’m SO ready to make some awesome vegan cut-out cookies this year! — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first Premium box with coupon code “WELCOME“!
