Each month comes with an information card that includes details about each sweet in the box.
Mrs. Prindables Triple Chocolate Petite Caramel Apple – Value $10.99
The first sweet I tried in the Prime Surprise Sweets Box is this chocolate covered caramel apple. Mrs. Prindables sells a petite size, which serves 1-2 people and a jumbo size, which serves 3-4 people.
Despite being called petite, I found this to be the same size as what you may buy at a local fall festival. The granny smith apple is dipped in caramel and then coated in white, milk, and dark chocolates. The taste is incredible!
Annie B’s Triple Threat Popcorn, 3.6 oz. – Value $4
Gourmet popcorn is one of my favorite snacks and I enjoy different flavors mixed together. So this mix of caramel, cheese, and white cheddar is an easy win. The popcorn tastes fresh and each bite is full of flavor. I can’t put this bag down!
MarieBelle New York Running Espresso Bar, 2.82 oz. – Value $8
This bar is made of Honduran Trinitario 70% cacao that is infused with espresso. And wow is it good! I also love the cratered design in the chocolate. Overall it’s a high-quality treat that I will eat in small doses or share because I can really feel an energetic boost and try to refrain from caffeine if at all possible. This bar is definitely on the pricier side but the beautiful packaging mixed with the chocolate goodness would make a great gift or party favor.
Moonstruck Chocolate Co. Milk Chocolate Truffle Collection, 2 oz. – Value $10
This four-piece truffle gift box is another win (and potential gift, maybe for Mother’s Day?)! The collection includes a Bailey’s Irish creme truffle, Mayan truffle, which is coated in crushed almonds and cinnamon, milk chocolate truffle, and honey vanilla truffle.
Each truffle is rich and creamy and truly awesome – I wish Amazon would have sent the 24 or 40-piece collection 🙂 Moonstruck is also sold on Amazon, but this collection is currently unavailable for purchase.
Fran’s Chocolates 64% Dark Chocolate Bite – Bonus! Value $0.69
The Prime Surprise Sweets box also included a bonus bite from Fran’s Chocolates. The single bite is 64% dark chocolate, vegan, and pretty good.
Verdict: For $18 (and free Prime shipping), I received about $34 worth of fantastic sweets. I am so thrilled with this box and am pleasantly surprised that Amazon sent brands not really found on their marketplace. I love discovering small and artisan US brands and the Prime Surprise Sweets box definitely delivered this month. I now have five more brands to consider when thinking about gifts (especially with Mother’s Day coming up!).
