OrangeGlad includes a really beautifully designed booklet to accompany the sweets, that gives a little information on the individual artisans and the goodies themselves. This month the design was a bit different as far as layout goes – the size was the same, but instead of being stapled on the long side, it was stapled in the middle and opened up, instead of out, so to speak.
Theo Hazelnut Crunch, 1.9 oz. – Value $3.00
This candy bar is 45% milk chocolate and contains hazelnut brittle inside. It is gluten and soy free (soy free is hard to find in chocolate!) and is kosher.
Theo Bread & Chocolate, 1.9 oz. – Value $3.00
This candy bar is 70% dark chocolate and has toasted bread crumbs inside. It also has sea salt added in. This is supposed to be a ‘unique take on pain au chocolat.”
Both of my candy bars came a bit melted. I let them set to harden, so I didn’t make a mess before photographing. You can see on the back of both candy bars though that they were melted and re-solidified.
Flavor wise, I was underwhelmed with both candy bars. The Bread and Chocolate bar could have used a bit more sugar (or less dark chocolate) and the hazelnut was just average.
Who doesn’t like speculoos cookies? I do not know a single person. These are fabulous, as always. I do think I prefer Biscoff, but these were a nice change and they are gorgeous to boot!
These were really great – all of the delicious flavors of speculoos together with the delightful flavor of vanilla was perfection. When we were in Paris this year, I bought a speculoos eclair – the flavors here were reminiscent of that!
Alfajores are a traditional Argentine treat, made from vanilla cookies and dulce de leche. These alfajores are a little soft, which made it difficult to eat them without making a pretty big mess BUT they were so delicious! OrangeGlad and Wooden Table Baking Co. call the cookie a shortbread type cookie, which I think is isn’t entirely correct. It is either not correct or it is a different shortbread that I am used to here in the states! It’s a very soft, vanilla cookie – delicious, but not traditional shortbread.
Verdict: This month’s OrangeGlad has a value of $13.99. I think that’s really quite low for a $25.00 a month box, so this month was somewhat disappointing. I really did not enjoy either chocolate bar either, which was also disappointing. The cookies though were all delicious. I think having a value this low isn’t going to set well with subscribers, but I may be incorrect!
