Sweets GiftBox January 2018 Review
This month’s card is all about finding your “Pure Bliss” in the New Year. I love that the information card also highlights each product with a little detail.
Let’s see whats inside!
The Cookie Department: Great Full (Sweet Potato, Cranberry, & Oatmeal), 3 oz. – Buy a 12-pc box for $34.95
This vegan cookie is probably the best thing I have ever eaten. I wasn’t sure how this was going to taste once I saw that it had sweet potato in it. Sometimes I find sweet potato to have an odd flavor baked down and blended with other ingredients. However, the mixture of sweet potato, cranberry, and oatmeal made this rich-in-antioxidants cookie divine! It was super soft from the oatmal like it was freshly baked. There was a light spice and tartness from the cranberries that made this really taste like a homemade dessert. I loved this so much I am considering buying a box to have on hand!
Fran’s Chocolates Crunch Bar With Roasted Nibs, 1.1 oz. – Buy 12 bars for $46.00
You might be wondering like I was, what are roasted nibs?! Well, they are fermented cacao beans that have been cleaned and lightly crushed. They have a super bitter chocolate taste to them which was the star of this chocolate bar. Honestly, I couldn’t get past how bitter everything tasted, like a burnt coffee almost. I had a few bites of the bar and while I enjoyed the overall crunch, this just wasn’t the type of sweet treat I enjoy.
Cannoli Chips Cinnamon & Sugar, 5.1 oz. – Retail Value $7.98
Cannoli chips where have you been all my life?! Each chip was so crunchy yet they melted in your mouth like an actual cannoli. The chips were perfectly seasoned with cinnamon and sugar. They were sweet but not overpowering. I could see these being great topped with ice cream or even used as decoration on a cupcake. For me, I ate these right out of the bag and could not put it down!
Becky’s Blissful Bakery Sea Salt Caramels, 1.16 oz. – Buy a 4 oz. bag for $9.99
I love caramels! These gluten-free caramels are buttery and so sweet. They are creamy and honestly melt in your mouth, which is probably why I ate this whole bag on my own in a day! The sea salt cuts through the richness to provide a very decadent flavor that I truly loved.
Chocolate Moderne Champagne Chic, 1 oz. – Buy a box of 4 for $13.00
These are double chocolate, yes double, champagne truffles. The rich filling is made with chocolate ganache and a rare champagne pressed from chardonnay grapes. Honestly, I have become a truffle snob over the years as my Dad often travels to Switzerland bringing home incredible truffles for our whole family to enjoy. However, these truffles were right up there with some of the best that I have tried! The champagne really shined in the rich creamy filling and the double chocolate layer made the outer shell just break apart at each bite. More of this, please!
Verdict: I think the Sweets GiftBox keeps getting better and better! I thought I loved the December box, but then came the January box and I have found a new love. I more than enjoyed each of the treats featured this month, and am going to be buying more of each very soon. Plus, I know a lot of family members that would love these treats as well so I will be keeping these links handy to purchase as gifts for them down the road. While it may seem that you aren’t receiving a ton of treats each month, the value really comes in being able to taste test such high-end treats that, from what I could find, many only are sold in bulk.
