Review: A box of different sweets every single month? Yes, please! I've heard of OrangeGlad for awhile now so it was really great to finally check it out. My mom was definitely a fan, and this one is one subscription service I plan on checking out again. If you subscribe, you get a variety of different sweets from around the United States for only $19 a month ($15 a month + $4 shipping). This is such a fantastic price for the amount of items you get.
Each package includes a booklet (shown in the picture above) that includes information about all the items (you get two of each item, another plus!). Each page has the name of the item you are going to taste, as well as information about the company that made it (where they are from and pictures of the chefs are included too!).
Another plus about the booklet is that the bottom of the page says Ingredients (all of mine noted to look at the label), as well as a Best by Date which is handy in knowing what you should eat first. One says to enjoy within 9 months while another should be enjoyed within 1 week, so it varies!
By the time I write this, my mom and I have tried most of the items in this box and there are definitely things I would love to try again. I'll have to search these companies online and see about online orders for the future!
The Hard Crack's Original Toffee Cookie Snack Packs were so amazing. My mom and I both loved these, and I seriously want more. Each pack comes with six thin cookies (three on each side). These are absolutely one of my favorite items in this month's box. If you like toffee, you are sure to love these little cookies. Each pack is perfect for a snack - or to share!
The other item in the photo (on the left and ride sides) are Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies from Selma's Cookies. I haven't tried this yet, but my mom had one the other day. She said it had too much raspberry for her taste, but if you love raspberry, then these sound perfect.
The box on top is Georgia Peach Cookies by Byrd's Famous Cookies. We received two boxes of these (again, each item had two of each - even though I only photographed one of each in the above photo) but my mom and I both thought they were too sweet for us. I liked them but we decided to share the other box with someone else.
In the bottom right hand corner, we have Citrus Mix Fruit Rock Candy by Raley's Confectionary, which I haven't had the chance to try yet either. I think they look really good though and I have a feeling I'll like these. I'm a fan of hard candy!
Finally, we have the item in the bottom left hand corner - Craft Beer Pretzel Caramels from Shotwell Candy. Along with the toffee cookies, these were mine and my mom's favorite item in the box. Each package included 3 individually wrapped caramels. Mmm mmm...I could use some more of these right now, but alas, we have eaten them all!
All in all, this was a fantastic box. Who wouldn't want a mix of new and exciting sweets at their door every single month? I really love that you get two packages of each item - plenty to eat and share if you wish, which is especially good if you are sharing with a family. I also love that it's only $19 a month in all which is a pretty good price for a food subscription box, I think. I will definitely check out more of these boxes in the future. I'd like to say I would subscribe every month, but you never know about money issues - another positive though is that you can skip a month (or cancel) at any time.
