You’ll find an info sheet included in your box that details what you’ve received and a little about each brand.

Brandini Toffee Chocolate Almond Toffee Popcorn package closed

Brandini Toffee Chocolate Almond Toffee Popcorn, 2 oz – Buy a 7.5 oz bag for $8

This popcorn was so good! It almost seems like caramel corn, but it’s coated with toffee. I think that makes it fantastic because I don’t really care for caramel popcorn but I love toffee in general.

This popcorn also has roasted almonds mixed in and is drizzled with chocolate – so good!

Cape Cod Provisions Sweet Cravings Crème Brûlée Truffles package closed

Cape Cod Provisions Sweet Cravings Crème Brûlée Truffles – 2.6 oz, Retail Value $5

Who doesn’t love truffles? I can eat them all day, every day. These have a white chocolate ganache and vanilla center, to mimic the custard of Crème Brûlée, and they’re coated in milk chocolate.

Just delicious!

G Mommas Butterscotch Oatmeal Bite Sized Cookies package closed

G Mommas Butterscotch Oatmeal Bite Sized Cookies, 1.5 oz – Buy a pack of 8 this size for $12.99 or a pack of two 5.5 oz bags for $9.99

These oatmeal cookies are actually quite crunchy/crispy, which is important to note because generally oatmeal cookies are expected to be soft and chewy. That being said, these are very tasty!

The fact that they’re bite-sized means they’re perfect for sharing (but you won’t want to).

Julian’s Bakery Belgian Pastry Waffles with Belgian Chocolate packaged

Julian’s Bakery Belgian Pastry Waffles with Belgian Chocolate, 2.47 oz – Buy a variety pack of 15 for $29.99

This waffle is so good! It has great flavor and Belgium chocolate chips in it.  It’s almost made with pearl sugar that caramelizes as the waffle is baked, leaving it with a crunchy coating.

The taste, texture, and flavor are all top notch for this treat.

Oven Arts Baking Truffle Brownie packaged

Oven Arts Baking Truffle Brownie, 3 oz – Buy a 12-pack for $41.88

This brownie looks quite simple, but it’s actually super decadent!

The top is light and flaky, and the inside is super dense and flavorful. It’s made with dark chocolate, real butter, and vanilla extract. You’ll definitely want a glass of milk with this.

Tony’s Chocolonely Milk Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Bar packaged

Tony’s Chocolonely Milk Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Bar 6 oz, Retail Value $5.49

It’s not typical for me to fall hard for milk chocolate but this one is great and high quality.

This one has crunchy caramel bits and has real sea salt and it tastes fantastic.

Lake Champlain Chocolates Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar packaged

Lake Champlain Chocolates Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar – 3.25 oz, Retail Value $5

This bar is fair trade, which is awesome. Even more awesome is how yummy it is.

It’s a really smooth dark chocolate with pockets of rich peanut butter inside. My husband called this “fancy Reese’s.” Divine.

Verdict: I really enjoyed this Holiday Surprise Sweets box from Amazon Prime! I got 7 items, so that averages to $3.86 per item, which is a great bargain considering their retail values. All of the included sweets were right up my alley, and higher quality, as well! I’m happy (who isn’t, after eating chocolate?).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, this box is now sold out. However, the Feels like Treat Weather Box and Munchin in a Chocolate Wonderland Box are still available, along with the  Amazon Prime Surprise Sweets box.

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $27, including free Prime shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $3.86.

  1. I’m ticked at Amazon saving all their best treats for these holiday boxes which sold out quickly while giving me the usual crap (retail value LESS than $18!) in a box purchased just one day prior. In a dozen boxes, I have never gotten a single bar of chocolate. Just endless tasteless whoopie pies, gummies, rum bundt cakes & dry as dust shortbread. Same tired repeats. I am done!

    • I just got my 2nd box and it had that Tony chocolate bar in it…

    • Just FYI… I got two of these exact same treats (the popcorn and the truffles) in my regular Surprise Sweets box. This just appears to be an extra SS box and nothing more.

      • Good to know. I’m glad someone’s getting the good stuff but I’m not. I’m done with these boxes unless they have a sale like a couple mos ago or I know ahead of time I’m finally gonna get chocolate. After the caramel apple bait & switch and the constant repetitions, I’m out. (Yes, I take my sweets seriously!) 😅

    • Ugh. That rum cake is the worst!

  2. I think the reg box is a better deal or I feel I get more for less. I nuts about this boxes and I never get the same thing. I have ordered a few full size items too. I loved those oatmeal cookies,omg yum! Once I get one box I feel lonely amd want to press the cool button again. Plus it’s like the ship it super fast. It’s here 2 days later.. Love these boxes more then any other box like it. I sent one family and they should get it tomorrow…I hope it blows their socks off and mine will be here today….I’m in love, can’t you tell! 😂😂😂

  3. Based on your RVs, I’m getting a total RV of $24.72. Am I missing something? That doesn’t seem like a deal if you’re paying more than the box is worth.

    • yup.
