OrangeGlad includes a booklet that details the items included in the box and provides information about the month’s featured bakeries.
Each item is featured on its own page alongside ingredient information and a “use by” date.
Raley’s Citrus Mix Rock Candy (3 oz.) – $5
I received this item in last September’s Orange Glad box, so I’m a little surprised to see it featured again. I enjoyed these citrus candies, though, so I’m not disappointed.
La Petite Occasion Salted Milk Chocolate Caramels (2 oz.?) – $4.13?
Caramels often pop up in Orange Glad boxes (actually, it’s pretty rare to receive a box without any), and, luckily, they’re one of my favorite treats. These are creamy and rich, with a nice salty chocolate flavor. FYI- There isn’t a size listed on this package, so I’ve estimated the weight and value.
Soft-Baked Original Biscotti by Marlo’s BakeShop (1.25 oz.)- $1.50
Marlo’s BakeShop’s “Original” flavor biscotti is a mix of chocolate-covered raisins, walnuts, and chocolate chips with a cinnamon sugar topping. My husband is a big fan of biscotti, so he immediately claimed this treat. He ate it with a cup of tea and gave it two thumbs up.
Le Waf Leige Waffle (3.5 oz.)- $4
This is a pretty good-sized waffle! Orange Glad recommends heating it up in the microwave for 15 seconds before eating, and I definitely agree. I took a nibble before heating it up, and I prefer it warm.
The Crispery Chocolate Sprinkles Crispycakes (6 oz.)- $4.25
Speaking of good-sized treats- this Crispycake is HUGE. I’m not sure if you can tell from the unboxing photos, but it takes up almost half of the box!
It’s soft and gooey, with a nice crunch from the puffed rice cereal. Rice crispy treats aren’t usually one of my favorite snacks, but this is just too much fun to eat. Orange Glad recommends cutting it into bite-sized pieces, but I say just go for it.
Verdict: Wow, this might be my favorite OrangeGlad Sweet Box yet! I really enjoyed the waffle, citrus candies, and crispycake, and I love that the box was full of so many large treats. Value wise, the retail cost of the items in the box is just under $19. Since that breaks even with the cost of the box, I’m pleased with the value, too.
