OrangeGlad included a brochure that details the items included in the box and provides information about the month’s featured bakeries. This is a change from the card they normally send. I like the new brochure, and I think it’s nice to have a little bit more information about what’s in the box and where it comes from.
Simply Good Chocolate Chip Biscuits by A Couple of Squares (1.1 oz)- value approximately $1.20
These cookies were crisp, crunchy, reminiscent of shortbread, and SO buttery! I think this is a great twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie.
Almond Toffee by Toffee Talk (2 oz)- value $6
One of my favorite things about OrangeGlad is the packaging. Their own packaging is great, but the items they feature very often have interesting packaging, too. This toffee is a great example- the bow is so cute! Toffee is a favorite of mine, and this was delicious. I love the combination of rich toffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and almonds.
Hot Cocoa Cookies by Zesty Cookie Company (1.8 oz)- value approximately $2.33
These Hot Cocoa Cookies are made with cayenne. I love spicy chocolate, so I was very excited to try these. The flavor was excellent, and I thought there was a perfect amount of spice. Unfortunately, though, I wasn’t crazy about the texture of the cookie. I was expecting it to be soft, but it had a dry, crumbly texture that didn’t really work for me.
Original Brownie by Fairytale Brownies (3 oz)- value $2.66
This was a fantastic brownie. It was somehow fudgy and light at the same time, and the flavor was very chocolaty. It might be the best pre-packaged brownie I’ve ever had.
Dreams Come Chew by Quin (.5 oz)- value $2.75
I’ve sampled Quin candies before, and I’m a big fan. These fruity chews are new to me, though. The flavors are: cherry, strawberry, tangerine, and lemon. Sadly, my packet only contained lemon and strawberry. I loved them, though, and I’m considering buying some more just so I can try all of the flavors!
Verdict: I really look forward to OrangeGlad’s Sweet Box every month. I think the curation is excellent, and I enjoy trying baked goods from across the country. This month, the value totals approximately $15, which is pretty typical for OrangeGlad and not great for the $21.95 monthly rate. However, if you use the coupon code mothersday40s to save 40% off your 6-month subscription, it brings the per-box cost down to only $11.97- a much better deal!
