There was a glitch in the computer system and my Orange Glad arrived late this month! Orange Glad is another dessert subscription box that delivers artisan treats to your door. You can get $10 off your first box (more than 50% off!) by clicking here!

Orange Glad does not include retail values of their products in their information card. They do tell you about each artisan/shop, the best by date of your treats, and the ingredients. I appreciate this touch! Because these items are made in local, small shops, I didn’t do a cost breakdown of this box. Watch my unboxing video HERE!

McTavish ice cream shortbread

McTavish – Ice Cream Shortbread

This was a buttery shortbread cookie with adorable round sprinkles on top. A good alternative to ice cream (since they can’t mail that)!

A Couple of Squares raspberry shortbread

A Couple of Squares – Raspberry Shortbread

This is softer and more buttery than the other shortbread in the box. The raspberry center is a nice touch, too.

The Art of Caramel popcorn

The Art of Caramel – Bananas Foster with Dark Rum Popcorn

This popcorn tastes just like caramel corn to me. After some bites, you can sort of taste the rum, but only if you’re looking for it. I don’t taste banana at all. That’s fine with me, because I love caramel corn, but don’t expect a strong banana flavor in this one.

Greyston brown sugar blondie

Greyston  – Brown Sugar Blondie

This is a huge blondie! It’s rich and very sweet. It has almost a cake or pastry like taste and texture. I could never eat this entire thing in one sitting.

Darling Gourmet Goodies biscotti

Darling Gourmet Goodies – Vagabond Biscotti

This biscotti is nice and crunchy like biscotti should be. The flavors all shine through. Some pieces broke off in shipment, but most of the 4 full size biscotti are still in tact.

I was pleased with the variety in this month’s box. Orange Glad definitely sends out more cookies/pastries than Treatsie so I think it’s a personal preference as to which one you prefer. I like both boxes and wish there was one that combined pastries and candies! I do like that this box included some chocolate, since it’s hard to put full size chocolate treats in boxes in the summer. I also like that you get to taste from 5 different artisans in Orange Glad, as opposed to only 3 in Treatsie. Which box do you prefer?! Leave a comment below!

More about Orange Glad: $15/month + $4 shipping. Orange Glad sends a selection of artisan baked goods (cookies, pastries, etc.) from across the U.S. carefully selected and packaged. Coupon: $10 OFF your first box (more than 1/2 off!) here.
