CC Made Classic Artisanal Caramel Popcorn, 8 oz. – Value $8.50 (buy a 3 oz. bag for $5)
I love caramel corn! This handmade treat has real butter and pure cane brown sugar in the recipe, and folks, you can tell.
The caramel is laid on thick, so every single bite has a satisfying crunch and a sweet, slightly savory taste.
I thought I’d start with a bite or two, and several handfuls later, I realized just how deliciously addictive this snack is!
Heritage Lemon Infused Shortbread, 4 oz. – Value $11.50 (buy an 18-piece box or 12-piece tin for $19.50)
I have simple tastes when it comes to cookies. I’m always the one ordering the shortbreads from the Girl Scouts each year, rather than the fancy peanut butter and Samoa flavors. So these shortbread cookies are right up my alley!
These cookies follow the Scottish tradition of shortbread, but stateside in South Carolina.
I love the thoughtful packaging!
I loved how crumbly and savory these cookies were, though I could’ve done without the hint of lemon. Again, I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to cookies! That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy two or three of these cookies with my morning tea!
Everton Toffee Toasted Pecan Butter Toffee Pretzels, 4 oz. – Value $4.00 (buy a 6-pack for $24 or 9-pack for $36)
I’m not the biggest fan of toffee, so I wasn’t sure I would like these. But wow was I wrong!
These pretzels are drizzled in a nutty, buttery toffee, which acts almost like a hard, more buttery caramel. The saltiness of the pretzels is the perfect compliment for the sweet toffee and the hint of nuttiness from the pecan? Delightful!
Grey Ghost Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies, 4 oz. – Value $4.99 (buy a dozen for $8.99)
Chocolate chip cookies might be my favorite treat of all time. These all-natural cookies were fantastic, too. They’ve got a hint of pecan mixed in for extra nuttiness and molasses to keep them chewy and rich.
My favorite thing about these cookies, though, is the coating of sugar crystals. The sugar crunches with every bite and is a sweet introduction to what’s to come. Alongside a cold brew coffee, these cookies were pretty next-level.
Verdict: For $18 (and free Prime shipping), I received about $29-worth of fantastic sweets. I loved exploring these new brands and flavor combinations. I’ve got quite a sweet tooth, so seeing this box arrive gets me seriously giddy. If I had any complaints at all, it’d be that I could’ve used more chocolate. But that just makes me excited to see what appears next!
