Olive & Sinclair Sea Salt Dark Chocolate – 2.75 oz, value: $7
I was happy to see two full-size chocolate bars in this month’s Treatsie box. However, I just don’t think I’m a fan of these specifically. I’m not crazy about white chocolate to begin with, but I found it to be a less creamy white chocolate and it had much brighter notes to it – It was almost borderline tangy. I’m an avid lover of sea salt and dark chocolate, but I thought there was either too much salt or the chocolate itself was so dark that it wasn’t sweet enough to counter the sea salt. I loved taking bites of this with some fresh cherries I had around, but on its own it didn’t work for me.
Salty Road Bergamot Salt Water Taffy – 3.5 oz, value: $7
Brittle Brothers Gourmet Cashew Brittle – 3 oz, value: $5
Salt Water Taffy isn’t my thing, so this beautiful box will be gifted to a friend!
The Verdict: Treatsie’s price value for this month’s box is spot-on at $26, and I’m happy with that value. I really want to like this month’s box – and I’m sure there are people who love it – but unfortunately it just didn’t match my taste this time around.
Which item did you like best in this month’s Treatsie box? Do you agree or disagree with me about the chocolate bars?
