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.
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.)
Each month comes with an information card that includes details about each sweet in the box.
Boston Strong Whoopie Pie – Value $5 (based on a dozen)
This is out-of-this-world DELICIOUS! These are made by the Maine company Cape Whoopies!
The cookie cake is very soft while the filling is smooth and sweet. Add in the fudge, and you’ve got a big-time winner.
Cookie Monstah Peanut Butter Cup – Value $5.50
When it comes to sweets, my first choice is always something with Peanut Butter involved – so you can imagine the size of my eyes when I saw this!
These are large – each one weighs 5.5 ounces.
This milk chocolate peanut butter cup is filled with peanut butter, but also chocolate chips and bits of cookies and cream cookies! Combined with the whoopie pie – this box is an easy winner!
Cashew Almond Toffee Popcorn – Value $8
Besides peanut butter – toffee is next in line for favorite sweets! Think caramel corn, but with a drizzled toffee topping instead of caramel – wow!
What I like most about this sweet popcorn is that it wasn’t too sweet. It also includes almonds and cashews for a little extra flavor.
jcoco Black Fig Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bar – Value $7.50
This was my least favorite of the month. That wasn’t a surprise since it was up against some of my favorites, and dark chocolate is never my go-to chocolate.
It didn’t have printed nutritional facts – so Amazon included it on its own.
They’re shipped in 3 parts – which is good for whatever kind of portion control you’re trying to achieve with a sweets box :)!
Each bar has a bit of pistachio and fig in it – but I wouldn’t say it’s packed in. The fig does add a nice flavor pop to the dark chocolate.
Jammy Jacks – Value $2.33 (based on 3-pack)
The last item was a bonus item! I was happy to see this full-size sweet as a bonus instead of the single, small, bites from previous boxes!
These were ‘fall apart in your hand’ fresh – and it echoed in the taste! This oat bar is covered with caramel and includes a raspberry jam to really pop out some flavor – absolutely delicious!
Verdict: This was, by far, my favorite Surprise Sweets delivery, ever. I hit all of my favorite notes with sweet treats – and those treats were all SO good! The value is good, too – at close to $28 in value this month – better than all of my past shipments. I’m excited to see where they take this subscription, but I’ve loved discovering new and smaller brands.
