Is it me, or does Treatsie send out a lot of toffee? I’m not complaining, especially when it tastes this good! The salt in this really pops, and it tastes fabulous. There are pecans in the toffee, but I barely tasted them. Since I’m a huge salted sweets person, I think this is my favorite toffee from Treatsie yet!
Oh man, these are good! Dangerous too, since they’re so easy to eat repeatedly! They’re very chocolatey, and taste exactly like my favorite part of an Oreo cookie – the cookie part (so much better without the cream!). These are really similar to some chocolate crisp cookies that I received in my November Snack Sack, just without the extra dusting of sugar. I liked those so much, I made them at home, and these are making me want to pull the rest of the dough out and bake some more!
The truffle filling is filled with popping candies and freeze dried raspberries. Though it is named “bubbly” bar, I don’t taste champagne – I think the reference is to the popping candies! It’s delicious by the way – I don’t like a lot of fruity flavors in my chocolate if it overpowers or competes in anyway, and the flavors are balanced so nicely here!
This was delicious! The salted caramel flavor was very light, but added a different twist to what would otherwise be a standard truffle filling. The chocolate on these bars is amazing and the filling was incredibly smooth.
Verdict: The value on this Treatsie box was about $17.94. I received two of the candy bars in the Treatsie Special Edition box but I kind of figured there would be some crossover for this month! The toffee was an awesome find, and the cookies are a newish favorite of mine, so this box was great for me, even though the value is a bit lower than the price paid for the subscription if you pay month-to-month. I always love my Treatsie boxes though if I’m being honest – they’re one I look forward to every month! There was a bit of a Valentine’s theme to the box, which is nice, even though we’ve past the holiday now!
