Update: the first Goodie Box is entirely gone, but you can email us to be notified about the second one, which will be released in August. The price is $49, and the value will be approximately $150. 

There seems to be subscription boxes for everything these days, but we thought our readers would be most excited about that one that focuses on food, drink and a wealth of other goodies from Houston restaurants and other small businesses. So, we’re happy to debut the Houston Food Finder Goodie Box. Only 25 of these boxes are being made, and there are only 14 9 0 left.

Houston Food Finder has some wonderful business sponsors, but like many other journalistic endeavors these days, our publication owes a whole lot of its existence to its supporting readers, too. It’s one of the important ways that we’re able to pay our writers, editors, social media assistants, graphic designer, website developer, etc. To that end, these boxes are only being offered to readers who are substantially supporting our work.

So, what’s in the box? Here are just a few teases:

  • A beautiful, hardcover cookbook by a notable Houston author
  • Restaurant gift cards
  • A full-sized jar of spice rub developed by a top Houston chef
  • Gourmet salt
  • A jar of spicy sauce that we absolutely love

How can you snag one of these special boxes, valued at approximately $200 each? There are three ways:
Boxes are ONLY for residents of Houston and its suburbs (Katy, Sugar Land, etc.) ages 21 and up. These cannot be shipped. If we see some out-of-town demand, next time we’ll ensure these are shippable. The first two courier dates are June 24 from 4 to 8 p.m. and June 25 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. We’ll contact each recipient to see if either time slot works, but if not, we’re happy to arrange delivery on a different date.

If these sell out, you can bet there will be another one in a few months — and it will be first offered to our best supporting readers. Thanks so much in advance for your support, and we hope you love the box!

Also, we greatly appreciate these sponsors that have already committed items to the mystery boxes:

Houston-area restaurant and other small business owners that would like to contribute items to the box and provide in-kind support to our work should email us. Because there are already a few bulky items, we recommend sending smaller items, such as gift cards, certificates or samples. It’s a great way to get your brand into the hands of some of the most passionate patrons of Houston’s food and beverage scene.
