We just keep pressing the button! So far, no duplicates! This is an on-demand Dash button box. You order the dash button for $4.99, then press it anytime you want a new Prime Surprise Sweets Box. (And you’ll get $4.99 in credit back to you toward your first box.)

Like most subscription boxes, you’ll get an information card that details each sweet in the box. They have made one update – they now add the value of each item to the card.

Sweitzer Candy Shop White Viennese Crunch – Value $7

The first treat in the box is a 2.2 oz toffee crunch. I love toffee – and the toffee in these candies is really amazing. The peanuts on the outside are also really flavorful – A+ for me!

POPLANDIA Cinnamon Apple Churro Popcorn – Value $4

This is the absolute highlight of the box – and one of the best things I’ve received from this subscription.

It tastes exactly as the name describes it. There are even small, chewy, apple pieces in the popcorn mix – this is some of the best popcorn I’ve tried in a long time.

Veruca Chocolates Dark Chocolate + Sea Salt Tiles – Value $10.50

The last full-size treats are dark chocolate sea salt tiles.

While I’m not the biggest dark chocolate fan – the sea salt really pops in these – they’re delicious.

B.T. McElrath Chocolatier: Salty Dog Bite – Value $.70 on Amazon

I’ve received this as my bonus bite in 3 of my 4 Amazon deliveries.

They’re similar to the dark chocolate tiles if they included small toffee bits – they’re good, but I’m hoping to get something different!

Verdict: This box is definitely not a value subscription box – you’re looking at only getting a couple more dollars of value versus your cost. This box is best for discovering small-batch chocolatiers and companies – which I have loved so far! If you’re looking to discover new brands and buy from small companies – this could be a good subscription for you.

What do you think of the AmazonPrime Surprise Sweets Box? Are you still waiting for your Dash Button?

  1. Just wanted to let people know that Amazon was great about refunding the $ of items that did not please. I received rock hard salt water taffy and really bitter/burnt tasting smoked almond toffee this box (plus some chocolate I haven’t tried yet). I called the #, talked to an service rep and they refunded me the cost of those 2 items (almost $11). I wouldn’t do this for something I didn’t care for (like the fancy raspberry marshallow), but if it is something I can’t eat and don’t think anyone else would eat, I appreciate Amazon’s willingness to correct it.

  2. You guys! I FINALLY got my invite! I haven’t been this excited about a sub box in awhile and I signed up to be on the waitlist on January 1st, so this is big! I was trying to figure out a way to get invited and finally I thought I should buy some candy from Amazon and it will show them how much I want sweets. It worked! I purchased those yesterday, received my invite today. Now it could be totally unrelated but it does seem like curious timing.

    • YAY! Enjoy!

  3. Eric, I think yours is the dark viennese because mine is white with toffee bits and no regular or dark chocolate on it. Great review, thanks!

    • Oh – that would make more sense. I was wondering why the card said it was white chocolate. Either way – delicious!

  4. I received this exact box last week. I love everything but I did put the toffee up for swap because I don’t eat it because of sensitive teeth.

    • I will totally swap with you for that toffee. It looks so good!

      • Yeah just search for it on the swap site and request, Nicole! 😉

  5. I am so gonna go to that store and buy a few different favors of that amazing looking popcorn. Yummy… This was the best box yet and it looked like it was worth the 18 price tag. I would been over the MOOOOn.Thanks Eric… Great review…

    • omg that popcorn is soo yummy and the decent size bag says one serving. I digged in last night and ate about half and was like I must of ate a crapload of calories already. I saw the whole bag is 1 serving and was relieved. It was a satisfying late night yummy…

      • I totally agree – the popcorn was unbelievably good! It’s a good thing we only got a little bag of it!

        • So true, Eric lol

        • Eric, did you guys do a march push yet? I’m so tempted but was hoping to see one of your awesome reviews first.. 😛

    • Thanks – this was easily one of my favorite Surprise Sweets!

  6. I went ahead and ordered the button today. Let’s see what I will get next week 🙂

  7. I received my first box on Monday and I received the exact same box as you guys did. The popcorn is off the charts good. The bag looks small but I’ve been eating from it every day and it’s still half full. I liked everything in the box but it’s going to take me a while to go through all the chocolate. I want to push the button again but I’m trying to hold off. Now I want to go to Portland just so I can stand in the Poplandia store and sample every single flavor.

    • I had the same thought about Poplandia! The popcorn was just soooooo good!

  8. I was a little peeved that I wasn’t getting an invitation after a month and i am a long time prime user with proven dash button usage. So i went to the request an invitation, hit it, refreshed my browser, hit it again, 3 times… My phone dings and i have an email from amazon to order the dash button. So apparently bugging them to death works.

  9. I loved my first box. You haven’t reviewed it yet, so maybe you’ll get it next. I received it last week and I just pushed the button again tonight. I fear that this is going to be dangerous for my weight. I did really enjoy the last box, but thank goodness I didn’t eat it all myself. Looking forward to what I get next.

  10. I’m going to double check that I’m still on the wait list! Signed up over a month ago! There sure must be a demand for this button!

  11. I ordered my Sweets dash button after your last review as well. Just received my invite a few moments ago, and placed my order. They give you 5 days to respond. If you haven’t received your invite, be sure to check your spam.
    I used the regular shipping to get the video credit. I can wait a few days for the button, and I treat myself to a movie with my credits when I am not in a rush to get something.

    Thanks for the info!

  12. I signed up for the wait list after your last review and can’t wait to get my dash button! 🙂 I checked to make sure I’m still on the wait list and I am. This all looks amazing!

    • I spoke too soon! I JUST got my email to buy the Dash button! I signed up for the wait list on 2/8, so I only had to wait 10 days. Ordered it and can’t wait to get it!

      • Yay! Have fun – it’s addicting to press that button!

  13. If you signed up back in early January for the waitlist, you probably have to sign up for the waitlist again. I clicked on the link in this post to just read the Amazon page again and saw that my waitlist spot had expired and I had to click to get added again! I clicked to get added to the waitlist again in early Feb. I have been on the waitlist from the beginning, twice now, and am still waiting. I checked today and my waitlist status is still active (not sure if it expires after 30 days or what, but I will keep checking!)

    • I have been consistently checking on my status and it still shows since the first week of January that I am waiting for the invite. It is very frustrating because I cannot even re-request it. I tried reaching out to customer service and got the generic you have to wait. At this point I’ll have to buy my own sweets.

      • I also reached customer service aince I ordered in the beginning of jan. But others got it already signing up at feb. they told me I am still on the waitlist and that availabily depend on location. So I imagine others in my state are still waiting too. Maybe it is the same with you.

  14. The forum has been buzzing about this popcorn, too!

    • It seriously is the best item in the box!! I can’t believe how much you get in one serving! Soo yummy!!

  15. I have been waiting since January…. still no email.

  16. I just got my button yesterday, and of course, I pushed it! I hope I get this box…😋

  17. Finally got my button after signing up in January and then re-signing up. Of course, we pushed that button the second it was set up. Really delicious treats – champagne dots, chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles, a S’mores caramel bar and a little square of dark chocolate. Nothing that has been reviewed here so it is nice to know they make the boxes pretty random. Going to push the button again…

  18. Right after you posted about this the first time, I signed up for the dash. Got my email a few days ago (it went to my spam box as a fyi) and I got the dash yesterday! Just set it up and ordered! I would have never known about this so thanks for posting about it!

  19. Still no button 🙁
