Sweets GiftBox UFO Crunch – Value $5?

The first snack I tried is an exclusive toffee popcorn. It tastes like your classic, but higher quality caramel popcorn with clusters of popcorn coated in thick toffee. In addition, there are almonds and pretzels mixed in, the latter of which I have never experienced before! The pretzels added a bit of salt and extra crunch, and overall this snack was very good!

Two Moon Lemon Shortbread Cookies, 3 oz. – Value $9.37?

Two Moon is a bakery located in Brooklyn, New York. I received two lemon shortbread cookies, which unfortunately arrived broken into several pieces. The taste, however, is awesome. There is a light lemon flavor which is combined with the standard salt and buttery flavors you would expect from a shortbread cookie. The cookies taste very fresh and I’m happy Sweets GiftBox included a small-batch maker!

Mayana Space Bar – Value $8

I’ve never tried Mayana chocolate before, but have read great things in Bekki’s reviews! The Space Bar is a combination of vanilla-bean nougat, almonds, fleur de sel caramel, and 66% dark chocolate. Overall it is very good and you can taste all the various flavors, but I’m not sure it’s worth the price tag.

The bar itself is about 4″ long and has small circular “craters” on top. It is solid but soft enough to cut through easily. Look at those layers!

Vintage Confections Outer Space Marshmallows – Value $5

These marshmallows are adorable, but wow, they are expensive for what they are! Sure, there is edible sugar paper atop each marshmallow, but at the end of the day, I didn’t taste the difference between these and your traditional grocery store marshmallows (which a 24 oz. bag retails between $3-4). I do think it would be cool to roast these on a camping trip while looking up at the stars, but other than that, the value isn’t there for me with this treat.

Vintage Confections Cotton Candy Lollipop – Value $3

This lollipop is adorable. The info card says it is cotton candy flavored. Although really good, I’m not sure that’s what I taste. Either way, the galaxy design is cool! I’m enjoying this very much and like that it compliments the marshmallows (both are produced by Vintage Confections).

Verdict: This month’s Sweets Giftbox has a value of $30.37, which is $5 higher than the cost of the box. I thought the space theme was cute and there was a nice mix of sweets. Although the marshmallows didn’t wow me, I was happy to discover new brands and finally try a Mayana bar!

  1. I received this box in terrible condition with the snacks all broken. The popcorn was all over the box. I can’t get ahold of their customer service either.

  2. This reminds me of the Amazon Sweets box. I really like this one you’ve reviewed but I like anything planet related.

  3. That Mayana Space Bar looks delicious!
