MADISON – Following previous successful holiday promotions, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) announces a new “Boxes of Fun” series through the Something Special from Wisconsin (SSfW) program. These curated boxes make it easy for Wisconsin consumers to give fun, unique Mother’s Day gifts while supporting local Wisconsin businesses. Boxes can be purchased online at https://somethingspecialwi.square.site/

May boxes are available in four varieties: Snack Box, Pamper Her, Mother’s Day Love, and Morning Madness. Box prices range from $59 to $89 and include products from a variety of SSfW member businesses such as Slide Gourmet Potato Chips, Ugly Apple Café, Addicting Pretzels, Palo Popcorn, Honestly Cranberry, and many more.

“It is more important than ever to support Wisconsin businesses, and Something Special from Wisconsin is just one way to do that. When people spend their hard-earned dollars on Boxes of Fun, they’re helping local businesses across our state,” said SSfW Program Director Lois Federman. “Each dollar spent is an investment in not only a local business but also in Wisconsin’s economy.”

To date, more than 500 Boxes of Fun were shipped to consumers across the United States. Boxes traveled to destinations as far away as California, Florida, and New York, providing an opportunity for dozens of SSfW member companies to grow their sales and reach new customers.
