Sweet Surprises Subscription Box Review – May 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Bakery Charms Sweet Surprises Subscription Box - May 2017

Sweet Surprises is a monthly subscription box by Bakery Charms, a Hawaii-based jewelry store that offers realistically cute dessert jewelry and accessories. Every month they send you a Bakery Charms piece (usually a necklace) along with 2-3 extras, including an edible treat, related to the theme and a coupon code.

Each jewelry piece is handmade out of polymer clay and other materials by self-taught polymer clay artist, Jenn K. Lee. The Bakery Charms piece may be an exclusive subscribers-only necklace, an early release of a magnet/keychain, or a variation of a current bestselling ring, and it will be worth more than the cost of the subscription. The small extras are included to support the featured piece and increase the box’s fun and cute factors.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Exclusive Bakery Charms Rainbow Sugar Cookie Necklace – Value $22?

This month’s necklace features a sugar cookie with an adorable rainbow icing design! It comes with an 18-inch chain and lobster clasp closure. It rests right under my collar bone which allows it to peek out above basic tees or v-neck shirts. The piece is exclusive to the subscription but I found a similar style for $22 on their website here.

Bakery Charms sells their necklaces with silver plated chains or sterling silver for an additional cost. I assume this necklace comes with silver plated chains.

The attention to detail is amazing here. It’s a little difficult to see the cookie from the front since it’s loaded with icing, but if you turn the charm on the back you can see bits of rainbow sprinkles inside the cookie dough.

Rainbow Eraser Wheel

This interesting box houses an array of rainbow colored erasers. All of them are fun to look at but what’s extra nice is how well they erase pencil marks! No streaks, little to no shavings, all around functional erasers. I will be passing these on to my sister, who will surely have a use for them (with enough to share with friends) in grade school.

Rainbow Gummy Candy

I devoured the gummy right after these photos were taken. It tasted sweet, a little tart, and 100% delicious! I love how it looks almost identical to the necklace, too.

Rainbow Charm on Lariat

This is a small metal charm with a rainbow and raincloud. I am not really a fan of this bauble only because it’s hard to tell what it’s supposed to be. The raincloud and raindrops look mushy, and without the telltale stripes of color, the rainbow loses its charm as well. Good idea, but an only so-so execution.

DIY Rainbow Scratch Art Keychain

This is a DIY scratch art keychain kit. I love the idea! The kit is easy to make, quick and personalized.

Here is my scratch art. Well, “art” is an exaggeration here– I didn’t really try. I wish there were a few more hues than just the dark blue and the sliver of pink, but I’m being nitpicky here. If scratch art isn’t your thing, it can easily be substituted for a small photo or other art for the keychain slot. I’m pretty pleased with my creation.

Verdict: I really loved this month’s necklace! The craftsmanship and attention to detail are breathtaking, as usual. The extras have improved over the months too. For example, I really liked the addition of the scratch art keychain. While I try not to give much weight to the bits and baubles compared to the necklace, the curation feels more put together when the extras are higher quality, you know?

  1. I just lost my dog on Friday and this would be perfect. The whole “Rainbow Bridge” they talk about when loosing a pet. Can I still get this box?

  2. I loved your review! Looking forward to more.

  3. I love how you get so excited over the smallest things. Would be nice to be young again.
