Orange Glad includes an informational card that details every item involved. One thing I also found interesting is that it also tells you how soon they recommend consuming it.
The Vagabond White Chocolate & Hazelnut – 3 oz (pack of 4), value: $4.50
Donsuemor Dipped Madeleine – .74 oz, value: $.65
Both of these treats were delicious, but my favorite between the two is the Dipped Madeleine. I liked the biscotti okay – I think it will be better with a cup of coffee!
Mighty Brittle Orange Blossom Flavor – 2.5 oz, value: $6
Sucre Macbubl – .74 oz
This macbubl is my favorite new discovery in the box! It’s described as an inside-out macaron. The outside is chocolate, then there’s a gooey chocolate ganache inside, and a crunchy delicious cookie in the middle. They don’t sell online (until June 2015), but apparently you can find them at Whole Foods!
This brownie has some espresso in it, and pieces of roasted walnut. This sounds like it would be especially yummy warmed on some ice cream!
Verdict: Overall, I was really happy with this month’s Orange Glad box. All of the treats were very interesting and I liked almost all of them quite a bit. The value adds up to about $16 (without considering a value for the macbubl, since I couldn’t find it). I wish it had a little more value, but I think this box tends to be more about discovery and featuring small businesses than value. Plus, they say they send 5 treats every time, so the box still meets my expectations.
