For some reason, I was expecting crunch in this candy bar, and it’s definitely not crunchy. It is honey and hazelnut flavored nougat, with a chocolate outer shell. It’s very good, but probably not my favorite item in the box!
This was really good! I tend to prefer caramel with dark chocolate because the bitterness of the chocolate is nicely foiled by the sweetness of the caramel, so you’re not getting a tooth-achingly sweet treat. This one was not super sweet, and I really enjoyed it!
As I said above, I like dark chocolate with caramel, so this was my favorite!
Quin Candy – Dreams Come Chew – $12.00
These are SO good. I’m sad that they’re so expensive, because these are like Starburst but 1000% times better because they’re actually soft and chewy. The flavors are amazing too!
My first bite, I thought: “meh, crumbly cookie,” by my second bite though, I started thinking “This is REALLY good.” There are layers of flavors here: buttery (and I mean very buttery) shortbread, chewy, sweet caramel, and then a hit of chocolate on the top. This is really something special, and I found myself regretting the fact that there was only one in my box, and that I ate the whole thing in one sitting. Do yourself a favor, and try these.
I was nervous about trying these, because I am a cookie purist – no nuts in my cookies! The nut flavor in these is really minimal, so minimal that I couldn’t taste it. So I enjoyed these, but if you’re looking for a nutty cookie, these may not be it.
Verdict: This Treatsie box has a value of $21.68, which is pretty standard for Treatsie boxes. I really loved several of the items in this box, so overall this box was a win for me! I would definitely buy two of the items on my own to snack on (the Quin chews, and the Clairesquare), and the others, I enjoyed but wouldn’t pick them myself!
