Each item is featured on its own page alongside ingredient information and a “use by” date.

OrangeGlad-March-2016-Moravian

Salem Baking Company Meyer Lemon Moravian Cookies (2.75 oz.)- $4.99

Moravian cookies are something of a local treat in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. For those who’ve never had them, traditional Moravian cookies are crisp, thin, and taste a bit like speculoos cookies (full of spices like ginger, cinnamon, and cloves).

True to form, these are nicely thin and crispy, but they’re flavored with meyer lemon instead of the traditional spice blend.

OrangeGlad-March-2016-Theo

Theo 65% Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Bar (3 oz.)- $4.99 (on sale for $3.25)

This limited edition bar from Seattle-based Theo is all about spring! It’s smooth and creamy, and I like the addition of coconut and almond.

This bar is also gluten-free, non-GMO, fair trade, and organic.

OrangeGlad-March-2016-Caramels

3 Kids and a Kitchen Caramels (3 caramels)- $1.65

I’ve tried this brand of caramels before, thanks to OrangeGlad, and I’m a fan!

OrangeGlad-March-2016-CaramelLabel

This little packet contains a selection of salted and old fashioned caramels.

OrangeGlad-March-2016-Claire

Claire Squares Jammy Jacks (2.2 oz.)- $6.99

Jammy Jacks are a twist on traditional Irish flapjacks. The chewy bars have a layer of raspberry jam in the center, and they’re kind of like a dessert version of a chewy granola bar.

OrangeGlad-March-2016-Pig

Truffle Pig Piglets (3 truffles)- $3

First of all, I absolutely love the name of this snack, and, to make things even cuter, each  small truffle is pressed into the shape of a piglet. The bite-sized sweets are smooth, creamy, rich, and packed full of flavor. I love them!

Verdict: This was a fantastic OrangeGlad Sweet Box! The Moravian Cookies, Theo bar, and truffles were all delicious, and I think this box had an excellent balance of items. From chocolate to truffles and cookies to caramels, this box had a little bit of everything! According to my estimates, the retail cost of the items in this box totals almost $22. That exceeds the cost of the box, so I’m pleased.

Yay! I’m so glad this box had a great review because I gifted a one month subscription to a person on the forums exchange we just had. Makes me happy it was worth it!

I agree. This was one of the best boxes in a while. The only thing better than Meyer Lemon Moravian cookies is Spice Moravian cookies. (I’m from NC but I would love them anyway).

I absolutely love orange glad. They have exceptional customer service.

My favorite part that I feel should be included in the value especially compared to the standard sub box is they ship with two day shipping so you get your treats very very quickly ensuring they arrive fresh.
