OrangeGlad includes a brochure that details the items included in the box and provides information about the month’s featured bakeries.
Lemon Pomegranate Brittle by Brooklyn Brittle (2.5 oz)- value approximately $3.50
This brittle definitely has curb appeal. Of everything in the OrangeGlad box this month, I found this to be me the most visually enticing. Happily, the flavors are great, too. The base of the brittle is crisp, and I like the fruity filling and crunchy glaze. I can’t pick out the pomegranate flavor (it just tastes “fruity” to me), but I usually feel that way about pomegranate snacks.
Salted Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookies by Velvet Rope Bake Shop (2 oz?)- value $2?
First of all, I love the packaging of these cookies. There isn’t a weight listed on it, though, so I’ve estimated it. The box included three cookies, and I’m pretty sure they’ll all be gone before the end of the day. They’re delicious, and I love the combination of apples, oatmeal, and salty caramel.
Two Moon Orange Chocolate Sandwich Shortbread (2.5 oz)- value $2.5
I couldn’t find this shortbread sandwich available on the Two Moon site, so I’ve used the value included in the OrangeGlad brochure. I love the combination of orange and chocolate, and I think these shortbread sandwiches are delicious. The shortbread is crumbly, without being too dry, and the orange flavor is well pronounced.
Petite Brownie Bites from Sugar Bowl Bakery (3 oz?)- value $1?
Again, there’s no weight listed on these brownies, so I’ve approximated their value based on the information provided by OrangeGlad. I like these brownies, but the brownie in last month’s box was so delicious that I think this one pales in comparison. I think I’ve seen these for sale at Costco, though, in case anyone is looking to stock up on more.
Maple Shortbread by Vermont Moonlight Cookies (2 oz?)- value $2.30?
I love maple, and these cookies do not disappoint! The maple flavor is subtle, and it nicely complements the buttery shortbread.
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 $12 (if my estimations are accurate), which is pretty typical for OrangeGlad and not great for the $19 monthly cost. You can save on your first month, however, if you use code SHOPSWEET. That will bring the cost of your first box down to $16.15.
Also, I want to mention that it looks like OrangeGlad has recently changed their subscription model. I no longer see 3 and 6-month subscriptions available on their site; however, the cost of their month-to-month subscription has decreased.
