RVA To Go Box Giveaway

Today we're excited to be hosting a giveaway for this complete collection of locally made Richmond goodness from RVA To Go:


If you haven't heard of this new company, let me tell you, Richmond's got it going on! The RVA To Go concept is a gift box filled with your choice of Richmond-made edibles.

They bring the best of RVA's food and snacks to people around the country and the world. Everything offered is strictly made in or around Richmond — you can choose between 5, 7 or 10 items to fill the box with for a flat fee, then it's packaged and shipped free to the recipient of your choosing!


RVA To Go offers a range of locally made edibles from coffees and preserves to peanut butters and chocolate bars. Tim's personal favorite is the Texas Beach Bloody Mary mix (big surprise there, right?) and if we're speaking for me — they even have Ukrop's Bakery rainbow cookies, butterstar cookies and White House rolls as shippable options!


Can we just back up for a sec? Rainbow cookies and White House rolls!? As a born and bred Richmond gal, can I just tell you how amazing it would have been to be able to order a tub of Ukrop's rainbow cookies while living in Brooklyn? And I won't even try to tell you how excited my best friend and roommate at the time, Emily, would have been if White House rolls had been included. Let's all just have a moment of silence in both regret and thanks that RVA To Go boxes didn't exist during that time-frame in our lives.


Don't ask me how all of the products fit neatly into the shipping box (it's definitely an art), but think about how fun these boxes could be as a "taste of home" for those off at college or camp, an out of state job or even someone new to Richmond who could use a proper introduction to all the local goods we have to offer. Perhaps a box filled with coffee and chocolates could serve as the perfect birthday or Valentine's surprise for that someone special?


The following RVA products from some of our favorite local purveyors are included in today's featured giveaway box, a $60 value:

Blanchard's Coffee specialty RVA blend coffee
Reginald's original roast peanut butter
Route 11 sweet potato chips
Agriberry's “Agriblend” (50/50 blackberry and red raspberry) preserves
Rostov's Coffee & Tea English breakfast tea blend
Netties Naturally super snack bar
Gearhart's blueberry chocolate bar
RVA stickers, pin-back button and pencil
