Sugarfina Mystery Bag May 2019 Review
Tequila Grapefruit Sours, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $8.50
These were a new one for me, which is always exciting as a Sugarfina connoisseur. These are inspired by Palomas and infused with Casamigos Reposado tequila, and they have a tart grapefruit flavor that pairs deliciously with the sweet sugar crystals.
Chocolate Bacon Pretzels, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $7.50
These bad boys are mini pretzel bites coated in dark chocolate and then dipped white chocolate and soy bacon bits. These were tasty like a regular chocolate covered pretzel, but I didn’t actually taste a strong bacon flavor.
Peach Bellini, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $7.50
These are one of my all-time favorite treats from Sugarfina. They have a juicy peach flavor with a sweet and tart sugar crystal coating, and the heart shape feels a lot classier than those peach flavored rings I devoured as a child.
Hello Kitty Bow Gummies, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $8
These strawberry bow gummies are soft and juicy while still having a good texture for chewing, and they are flavorful enough that only a few satisfy the craving for a sweet snack. Plus, the packaging is adorable.
Hello Kitty Mama’s Apple Pie Gummies, Small Candy Cube – Estimated Value $8
These have the same adorable Sanrio packaging, only if you want to buy these they’re only available in a bento box. These taste like Hello Kitty’s favorite dessert (her mama’s apple pie!), and they were juicy and had a good texture.
Champagne Bears, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $8.50
I would say these are the most popular Sugarfina offering, but they aren’t my favorite. These are made with real Dom Perignon champagne, and they taste almost like a sprite, only without the carbonation and not as sweet (I feel like I just described champagne, but I have never really actually drank champagne so I can’t be sure). I prefer my candy to have a bit more flavor or texture pizazz, so these are a pass for me. If you don’t have a crazy sweet tooth like I do, though, you will probably be happy with the sweetness level of these.
Marzipan Eggs, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $7.50
If you like marzipan, you will like these. If you don’t like marzipan, pass your cube to me. I had actually forgotten what marzipan tasted like when I got these so I bit into them thinking there would be chocolate. There is no chocolate to be found here, but I really enjoyed the strong almond taste with the crunchy outer shell. This cube was actually the first one out of the box that I completely finished.
Pink Pineapples, Small Candy Cube – Retail Value $7.50
These are fun. They have a firm, but pillowy texture that is a bit different than your regular gummy, and they taste like fresh pineapple juice. These would be really tasty in a summer-themed cocktail!
Pink Bunny Tails, Small Candy Cube – Estimated Value $8.50
Honestly, I am sad that these aren’t currently available – they were one of my favorite treats in the box! They are strawberry gummies that almost have a marshmallow texture (but with a bit more firmness that makes chewing them more satisfying), and they are rolled in sugar crystals. These are another treat that was hard to stop eating.
Baby Carrots, Small Candy Cube – Estimated Value $8.50
These gummies were another delight- they taste like a juicy orange and the tart sugar crystals add a nice texture contrast. Plus, I am in love with the adorable packaging of these Easter-themed cubes.
Hello Kitty Pink Chocolate Bar – Retail Value $9.95
Hello Kitty Milk Chocolate Bar – Retail Value $9.95
Bunny Bark Pink Chocolate Bar – Estimated Value $9.95
Bunny Bark Milk Chocolate Bar – Estimated Value $9.95
The pink chocolate bars are French white chocolate infused with natural color and topped with rainbow sprinkles, and the milk chocolate bars are French milk chocolate topped with rainbow sprinkles. Though the Hello Kitty and Easter packaging are different, the chocolate bars taste the same (that is, both milk chocolates and both pink chocolates). These weren’t bad, but I am a fan of dark chocolate more than milk or white, so I felt like these were missing a little savory to balance out the sweet. My pink Hello Kitty bar arrived partially melted but considering the heat that we experience here in south Louisiana, I was actually impressed there weren’t more chocolate casualties.
The Verdict: This mystery box was absolutely epic. If you’re not already a big fan of Sugarfina you may think this is much ado about not a whole lot, but if you’re all aboard the Sugarfina train like I am this box was full of favorites and new goodies to explore. For $60, Sugarfina promised a value of $120 for this box, and they technically came twenty cents shy with my math adding up to $119.80. Since I had to do a few value estimates, I think it is fair to say that the promised value has been met and I feel like the queen of candy land.
