Amazon Prime Surprise Sweets Box #2 Review – February 2017
You’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to buy this box – If you are not already a Prime Member, start a Free 30-day trial. It’s currently on invitation-only mode – so sign up today and request an invitation and be next to get your prime button!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Amazon Prime Surprise Sweets Box
The Cost: $18 (You’ll need to buy a Dash Button first for $4.99 – and your first box will only be $13.01)
The Products: Each box is filled with artisanal sweets and treats from small-batch makers across the US.
We just keep pressing the button! So far, no duplicates! This is an on-demand Dash button box. You order the dash button for $4.99, then press it anytime you want a new Prime Surprise Sweets Box. (And you’ll get $4.99 in credit back to you toward your first box.)
Like most subscription boxes, you’ll get an information card that details each sweet in the box. They have made one update – they now add the value of each item to the card.
Sweitzer Candy Shop White Viennese Crunch – Value $7
The first treat in the box is a 2.2 oz toffee crunch. I love toffee – and the toffee in these candies is really amazing. The peanuts on the outside are also really flavorful – A+ for me!
POPLANDIA Cinnamon Apple Churro Popcorn – Value $4
This is the absolute highlight of the box – and one of the best things I’ve received from this subscription.
It tastes exactly as the name describes it. There are even small, chewy, apple pieces in the popcorn mix – this is some of the best popcorn I’ve tried in a long time.
Veruca Chocolates Dark Chocolate + Sea Salt Tiles – Value $10.50
The last full-size treats are dark chocolate sea salt tiles.
While I’m not the biggest dark chocolate fan – the sea salt really pops in these – they’re delicious.
B.T. McElrath Chocolatier: Salty Dog Bite – Value $.70 on Amazon
I’ve received this as my bonus bite in 3 of my 4 Amazon deliveries.
They’re similar to the dark chocolate tiles if they included small toffee bits – they’re good, but I’m hoping to get something different!
Verdict: This box is definitely not a value subscription box – you’re looking at only getting a couple more dollars of value versus your cost. This box is best for discovering small-batch chocolatiers and companies – which I have loved so far! If you’re looking to discover new brands and buy from small companies – this could be a good subscription for you.
