Baklavva Subscription Box Review + Coupon – January 2016
Baklavva is a subscription box that sends out…wait for it…baklava every month. There are three subscription plans: 1 lb., 2 lb., and 3 lb.
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.)
The Subscription Box: Baklavva
The Cost: $18/one pound, $32/two pounds, $48/three pounds
Shipping: $5.99 shipping on the 1 and 2 pound boxes, free on the 3 pound boxes
Ships to: US only (Excluding Alaska and Hawaii)
I have had a lifelong love affair with baklava. The crispy layers, drenched in sticky honey, mixed with spices and nuts is just heaven in my mouth. Unfortunately, it’s never had a moment, like cupcakes or macarons, but it is rave worthy nonetheless. If you like baklava, you know that it isn’t always the easiest treat to find.
With the 1 pound subscription, they promise 14-16 pieces in each shipment. My shipment had 14 pieces of baklava, so this box is right on target so far. They say that if you store the treats at room temperature, they should last about 14 days, and they also give recommended freshness times for the refrigerator and freezer.
Baklavva – Walnut
You really can’t go wrong with original baklavva. It is just the right amount of sweet, crispy, and flaky. This version is walnut and it is fabulous as always!
Bird Nest – Cashew
These are really delicious. I am impressed that this company can send so many different types of baklavva, with the same general ingredients, and make each variety just a little different. This was a bit more crispy than the traditional baklavva, and I really enjoyed it.
Burma – Pistachio
This is pistachio Burma. It is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The flavor is amazing, and it isn’t overpoweringly sweet. I have received the cashew Burma in a previous shipment, and I love the fact that the send the same treats with different nuts as the centerpiece.
Fingers – Cashew
I really love these. They have the same flavors as the original baklavva (just different nuts), and they’re a little easier to eat because they layers aren’t sliding all over the place!
Verdict: The value of this box has to be individually determined. I think the cost of the box is very reasonable for the products included. The cost breakdown per piece is about $1.49 when you factor in the shipping for a one pound box. Baklava is easily $3.00 a piece where I live, due to the expensive nuts and honey used to make each piece – which makes this a steal in comparison. There has only been one box that had a variety I wasn’t fond of – it’s more of a rarity! I loved every variety in this box.
With that, my recommendation is usually the same for this box – if you love baklava and can’t access it easily where you live – I highly recommend this subscription!
