The box comes with a card detailing the items included!
Marlo’s Original Biscotti – Value $10-12 on Amazon (based on 24=count delivery)
I was introduced to both coffee and biscotti by my grandpa – I now drink coffee all the time, but I still have a love/hate relationship with biscotti. It has to be just right for me to crave.
There are 5 individually wrapped biscotti in the box.
The biscotti are absolutely perfect for me. They are softer than a normal biscotti, but not soft enough that they fall apart when dipped in coffee – and the taste is better than any other biscotti I’ve had!
Each biscotti is made with chocolate chips, toasted walnuts, and chocolate covered raisins.
That name is a mouthful – and so are these little bites.
These are perfectly bite-sized and crunchy. The pepper is there for a little kick – but I’m not sure that people who dislike pepper will taste it enough to dislike these.
Vosges Chocolate Blood Orange Hibiscus Caramels – Value $10
Is there a better combination than orange and chocolate? Yes. Just add caramel!
We got a pack of 5 of these bite-sized, chewy, chocolate-covered caramels. The blood orange is there, but subtle. I’m loving the combination of all three ingredients.
B.T. McElrath Chocolatier Salty Dog Bite – Value $.70 on Amazon
The last item is marked as a bonus item on the card. Similar to the Laurie & Sons candies, this is a crunchy, toffee bite – just without the pepper.
I love toffee – and the little toffee crumbles were really the perfect addition to this chocolate.
Verdict: My values come to around $27-29 of candy for $18. The value is ok – but this also feels like a nice tool for high-end candy discovery. I’ve never tried any of these brands, but I feel like I could start a subscribe and save for any of these sweets and be happy. I can confirm that there are more than one variations for the box – we ordered 3 to test it out – we received 2 of the same boxes and 1 different one – but I’m not sure how many variations exist.
