Just in Time for the Holidays – Awesome Mitten Crate

Michigan Made Gifts - The Awesome MittenWe’ve teamed up with our friends at Mitten Crate to create “The Awesome Mitten Crate” for Michiganders near and far to buy and gift this holiday season.

The Awesome Mitten Crate has been carefully curated and filled with our favorite Michigan made goodies. Plus, keeping with Mitten Crate’s mission, for every crate that is purchased, three meals are donated to families in need through Gleaner’s.

Wondering what’s instead our crate of Michigan made awesomeness? Check out photos below:

Noteware Candy Company‘s Michigan Shaped Chocolates: Don’t worry, it does include the Upper Peninsula as well – it just didn’t make it into this picture! Noteware Candy Co is based out of Manistee and produces so many delicious candies, it was hard to pick just one to include.

The Awesome Mitten was born when I moved back to Michigan from Nashville, TN in September 2010. Almost immediately, I became frustrated. I couldn’t figure out why there weren’t more Michigan residents singing our states praises! I was so irritated, I wrote a Letter to the Editor. Three weeks later, I had started a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a landing page for the website, determined to do something to make Michigan residents aware of all the cool things going on in their own state.
