Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle by Sheila G’s, 5 oz. – Value $2.98

I love most things chocolate; so I knew these would be a hit when I pulled them out of the box. The flavor is quite nice and the cookies are pretty airy, so I don’t feel too bad about eating so many of them… which I am did.

S’mores Marshmallow Rice Treats by Crispy Cakes, 6oz. – Value $9.75? (based on a similar product)

I was unable to find the exact version of this product, so my value is an estimate I found from a similar product. I love s’mores and I love marshmallow rice treats, so this one was sure to be a hit. It’s gooey and delicious and not overly sweet. It’s also very large, almost the size of my hand! This one is a winner and I’m excited to share with friends.

Mango Salt Water Taffy by Salty Road, 3.5 oz. – Value $10.00

I’m not the biggest fan of salt water taffy but enjoy mango flavoring, so I was optimistic about this treat. After tasting one, I really didn’t enjoy the creamy flavor and you could really taste the salt, which I also didn’t like. I’m sure these are great for any salt water taffy fan, just not for me!

Super Fruit Chews by Lovely Candy Co., 2 oz. – Value $1.67 (buy 12 bags for $19.99)

These super fruit chews are made with real fruit and are all natural, which I appreciate. There are 3 flavors received in this packet: blueberry, cranberry, and raspberry, all of which are delicious, chewy and remind me of summer – this treat is a winner in my book!

Root beer flavored lollipop – Value $2.58? (based on a similar product)

I was unable to find the exact product, so my value is an estimate. I’m not the biggest fan of anything root beer flavored, so I didn’t have too high of hopes for this lollipop. I’m happy to report that I actually enjoyed the flavoring and almost ate the whole thing!

Verdict: This was my first experience with the Sweets GiftBox; I enjoyed it for the most part but would have exchanged a few of the treats for something more up my flavor alley. The estimated value received was $26.98, which exceeds the cost of the box, $25 + free shipping. I would recommend this box for anyone who has a sweet tooth that likes finding new treats each month.

  1. I received expired items a couple months back. 2 of them! One had expired over a year ago. I reached out to customer service and they said they would reimburse me. Never received anything.

  2. Looks delicious!

  3. Wow, very similar to what Amazon Sweet Surprises has been sending. I hope they don’t put small companies like this out of business!
