Fisher’s Popcorn Caramel Popcorn 2 oz. – Buy a 12 pack for $17

Oooh, caramel popcorn! This is something I definitely would never make at home (unlike regular popcorn), so this is a sweet treat I’d have to purchase anyhow when I get the hankering.

There are only five ingredients in their caramel popcorn which is just enough now that I see them listed out. Their popcorn also is gluten-free and is made with no preservatives.

I immediately noticed how insanely buttery the caramel really is, but I like it! It’s made with pure cane sugar, so it’ doesn’t taste like chemicals. It’s hard not to eat the whole bag.

Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cake in Chocolate Chocolate Chip, 4 oz. – Get a 4 count sampler pack for $19.95

I’m trying to recall if I’ve eaten a rum cake in recent memory, and I can’t come up with anything. I did semi-recently have a chocolate bundt cake made with red wine though, and that was tasty, so I have some high hopes for this one.

It comes vacuum sealed in plastic which first made me think I would need to heat it, but it’s just for freshness.

The package says that this is best served at room temperature with some coffee or tea, so I decided to make a cup of tea to go along with it. The cake stayed super moist, thanks to the vacuum seal and it’s extremely rich with chocolatey flavor. Definitely glad I have the tea to mellow out some of the sweetness.

Grey Ghost Bakery Lemon Sugar Cookies, 4 oz. – Value $4.99

Dang, these are some good cookies! Like the rum cake, these are also really sweet, so I suggest having them with tea as well. Plus, lemon cookies and tea are just meant to be enjoyed together.

You get six cookies in this short little plastic tube that has an inner package to keep them fresh in transit.

The lemony cookie itself has these large sugar bits in it, but they are soft instead of hard.

Bequet Caramel Salt-Chocolate Caramels – Value $6.99

Lastly are these salt-chocolate caramels that hail from Montana. The package is 4 oz. and contains about 10 individually wrapped caramels.

Salt and chocolate is a wonderful combination in my book, and this flavor delivers the marriage of sweet n salty.

The caramel is ultra-soft and melts in your mouth. It’s not too hard and sticky like some others that stick to your teeth. I can only eat one of these though before my sweet tooth is satiated.

Verdict: My first Prime Surprise Sweets was a short n sweet little collection of random treats. I got four items in this box, which at $18 puts them at a value of $4.50 each. That seems fair to me since the retail value of each is higher than that, so it looks like I’m getting cut a sweet deal via Amazon. I also like the idea of just pressing a button anytime I need a surprise delivery of saccharine snacks.

Will you be hitting the dash button for more Prime Surprise Sweets?

I was thinking of pressing my button last night, but I really wanted a chocolate heavy box.

I figured out how to see what you’re getting and you can cancel if you don’t like it. You have to go to your orders, but not on the Amazon app. Doing it on the computer or your browser app (it worked on my phone when I signed in to Amazon on chrome) and clicking on your orders will show you everything that’s coming in the box. And like I said, you can cancel if you don’t like what you’re getting.

Michelle

thanks, I just ordered one so I’m going to check!

Ginny

Thanks! I would’ve done this on my last box. I am also waiting for the chocolate box, but it’s still way too hot down here. 😕

Zo

That 2 oz. bag of Fisher’s sells for $1.49. I’ve seen them in regular grocery stores. I’ve put them as extras in a few swaps.

Aleece

I received this exact box as my first box too. I absolutely LOVE lemon anything, but those cookies had ZERO flavor and the last thing I’d describe them as, would be sweet. Wonder if I got a bad batch? Curious if they send they have set boxes they send 1st, 2nd, etc.?

Shana

i just got this box today, and loved the cookies! made the mistake of trying it right away and couldn’t help having a second! maybe yours is a bad batch?

Amber

They have one box that is sent out for a certain period of time, and then it will change to something else. I’ve gotten 3, but if I had pressed the button when you did, I would also have gotten this box as well.

Joy

Total RV seems like it’s $18.39, which is fair, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a deal. I do love those caramels.
