I have had a lifelong love affair with baklava.  The crispy layers, drenched in sticky honey, mixed with spices and nuts is just heaven in my mouth.  Unfortunately, it’s never had a moment, like cupcakes or macarons, but it is rave worthy nonetheless.  If you like baklava, you know that it isn’t always the easiest treat to find.

With the 1 pound subscription, they promise 14-16 pieces in each shipment.  My shipment had 14 pieces of baklava, so this box is right on target so far.  They say that if you store the treats at room temperature, they should last about 14 days, and they also give recommended freshness times for the refrigerator and freezer.

Baklavva – Walnut

You really can’t go wrong with original baklavva.  It is just the right amount of sweet,   crispy, and flaky.  This version is walnut and it is fabulous as always!

Baklavva4

Bird Nest – Cashew

These are really delicious.  I am impressed that this company can send so many different types of baklavva, with the same general ingredients, and make each variety just a little different.  This was a bit more crispy than the traditional baklavva, and I really enjoyed it.

Baklavva5

Burma – Pistachio

This is pistachio Burma.  It is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  The flavor is amazing, and it isn’t overpoweringly sweet.  I have received the cashew Burma in a previous shipment, and I love the fact that the send the same treats with different nuts as the centerpiece.

Baklavva6

Fingers – Cashew

I really love these.  They have the same flavors as the original baklavva (just different nuts), and they’re a little easier to eat because they layers aren’t sliding all over the place!

Verdict:  The value of this box has to be individually determined.  I think the cost of the box is very reasonable for the products included.  The cost breakdown per piece is about $1.49 when you factor in the shipping for a one pound box.  Baklava is easily $3.00 a piece where I live, due to the expensive nuts and honey used to make each piece – which makes this a steal in comparison.  There has only been one box that had a variety I wasn’t fond of – it’s more of a rarity!  I loved every variety in this box.

With that, my recommendation is usually the same for this box – if you love baklava and can’t access it easily where you live – I highly recommend this subscription!

What did you think of this month’s Baklavva shipment?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. Well, I’m not inspired to subscribe, but the post made me realize how many years it’s been since I made baklava and so I picked up some filo dough and will be spending the morning making a tray of it to share with my local friends, family, and coworkers.

  2. The individual treats look delicious but I noticed in the first picture they are slightly roughed up but overall in pretty good shape. I’m wondering with the upcoming warm weather if they package these well enough? I’ve had Baklava (sent to me from another vendor) arrive collapsed and soggy from heat “exhaustion”. Thank you for the tasty review!
