Orange Glad November 2015

This month, we got:

Shotwell Candy Co. – Tennessee Toffee

Seattle’s Chocolates– Thanks-olate Bar (Milk Chocolate and Toffee)

Dottie’s Delight– Maple Caramels

The Poisoned Apples – Salted Toffee Chocolate/Shortbread/Caramel Bar

Studmuffin Desserts– Bleeker Street Brittle

I loved the bar from The Poisoned Apples the most this month! I was only mildly satisfied with the box as a whole, though. So many items had toffee, so if you’re not into hard/toffee stuff, you probably wouldn’t get much use out of this box. Plus, Orange Glad usually sends at least 1 (or more) baked items like cookies or brownies, and that was missing from this box. I’m hoping for some cookies for December!

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.

August 2015 box

August 2015 box

I enjoyed the assortment of treats in this month’s box. Last month, I preferred Orange Glad to Treatsie and would recommend it of the 2. I love how you get to try 5 different artisan’s treats and I love the detailed brochure with information about each artisan. This box is a nice subscription box experience overall.

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

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 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

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 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!
