I’ve had my eye on the Orange Glad subscription service and finally (FINALLY!) I found a deal for it during this year’s Black Friday sales.
I’ve got a hideous sweet tooth which I try not to indulge. But I’ve decided to make this sweet box work in my favor. I’ve resolved that I will make the sweets that come inside last and try to limit myself to only these sweets during the month, if I can. That seems reasonable, no?
Of course having to wait to write this review also means I won’t be ripping open the package to devour them as soon as they come in…guess that helps too. -grin- (See my other reviews for Orange Glad here.)
THE DETAILS: This box retails for $19.99 a month, which includes shipping. It ships only within the U.S. This box is non-refundable, unless an item arrives damaged. With my six-month box deal, I got each box for about $10.98.
Here’s the first look. As always, you get the cute packaging and a monthly themed explanation card. It’s March so there I’m hoping these two packages have some St. Patty’s day items!
First up are these fluffy -looking Orange Glad Itty Bitties shortbread cookies. I couldn’t find these on sale on their website so I’m going to guess they have a retail value of about $3.
The next item is a sampling of Lark’s Fine Foods Russian Tea Cakes. These aren’t my favorite kind of cookies but I’m sure I’ll find someone else who’d like to try them. This is about a third of their normal serving so retail value is about $3.33.
This, on the other hand, is something that I can get behind! I love macaroons so Smackaroons Chocolate Almond Smackaroon looks scrumptious! Retail value is about $3.13.
A cake pop! And of the holiday persuasion! -smile- This one is actually red velvet (yum!) and is from Sweet E’s Bake Shop. Retail value for one is $3.75.
The final item in this box is Seattle Chocolates San Juan Sea Salt Truffle Bar. I’ll be squirreling it away for future snacking! Retail value is $3.50.
All said and done, the value of this box was about $16.71. Better than last month, and above what I paid with the discount, but again, not quite break-even with what I would have paid without a discount. Still, fairly well pleased with this month’s box!
Did you order a box this month?
