Orange Glad Sweet Box Subscription: July 2013

I finally subscribed to a monthly subscription box you guys! It's called Orange Glad. It's a dessert subscription sweet box and it's NEW. I didn't want to suggest Orange Glad to my readers until I tried it. I received my 1st box Friday and love it. It's about $15 a month / plus s&h. The Orange Glad Team hand picks baked goods & confections from various sweet & bakery shops around the US and mails them to your doorstep. It's a great way to learn about and sample treats from different bakeries etc. *This is not a sponsored post. I paid for this subscription box and really like it.
They ship priority out of California via USPS (United States Parcel Shipping). An email is sent to you with a tracking number when your box is ready to ship (so you'll know when to expect your box). All the treats are moist & fresh because they're wrapped in a silver padded wrap (see below) and they use cold packs.
You receive a laminated 8 1/2 x 11" sheet card that lets you know what treats are in your box and their expiration dates (example: Please enjoy within 5 weeks). On the back of the sheet, it tells you the shop it came from, where they're located and a website address for each shop. It's really good in case you want to order more. I'm keeping my cards as references. There's also a sheet that lists all ingredients found in each treat (snack/sweet). They even sent these cute little miniature pins as a free gift. They don't tell you ahead of time what's going to be in your box. Every month is a surprise!
Ready to see what was in the box? This box contained 5 sweet treats!

S'more Bites - Sweet Lydia's (Lowell, MA) - 
Love, Love, SUPER LOVE these! They are SO GOOD! I've never tasted a bite size s'more that's so lite and good. They melt in your mouth. Excellent chocolate, a wonderful fresh graham cracker, delicious marshmallow and beautiful sprinkles. What more could one ask for!?! They're truly delicious. Also, the packaging & presentation was beautiful.

Alice's Stick Cookies (Los Altos, CA) -
Another winner were these cookies. They are buttery delicious. Think shortbread, but with pizzazz. They melt in your mouth.They're very light and not heavy. They have a fresh, wonderful homemade taste to them. These would go great with coffee, milk, tea or hot chocolate.

Complete Peanutbutterness - Yummes (West Carrollton, OH) -
This cookie is for the peanut butter lover and connoisseur of your family! Anyone that LOVES peanut butter will love this cookie. Really thick, creamy and rich peanut butter is sandwiched between two chocolate & frosted drizzled peanut butter cookies. You can't eat the whole thing in one sitting. Slice a section off and enjoy! It puts other peanut butter cookies to shame.

Chocolate Bark - The Secret Chocolatier (Charlotte, NC) -
I'm not even a chocolate bark fan and I loved these. Great tasting chocolate! Very creamy! Nice toffee crunch & chew in-between layers. My favorite was the white chocolate. Very good.

Brownie - Fat Witch Bakery (New York, New York) -
These brownies are listed as one of Oprah's favorite things! They've been featured on the Food Network and also The Today Show. It's a great tasting brownie. It's chocolatey, the consistency is good, it's moist and yummy delicious. Heat it, add a scoop of ice cream and watch your face light up :)

Orange Glad ships within the US only (see FAQ on their website).

This looks super!!I wish they had these kinds of boxes here, they could and I just don't know it. I loved all the little treats you got inside. I would have had them gone in no time!! It's nice that what comes will be a surprise as well, makes it more fun. I hope you have a great week doll :)) xx

P.S. am hungry now, hahahaha :)

Cee said...

I've always been a bit on the fence about monthly subscription boxes; I've tried a few and found myself disappointed as often only half of the products are things I really want/need. But how could anyone possibly not want/need baked goods? I'm so sad that Orange Glad doesn't ship to Canada, but I hope they become super successful and are able to expand their service north of the border because I would love to test them out! Thanks for a drool-worthy review, Kim :)

Mica said...

ooooh I hope something like this comes to Australia! WOW!

This is the only subscription box I've come across that I ever wanted to sign up for before reading all of the info on the website, such a great idea. Why do I live in Australia?! haha!

Jealous you get to enjoy it, it all looks so delicious! :)

Well you know from my blog that I have a sweet tooth so this looks like a very good idea. The chocolate bark and brownie look particularly scrummy but it's only in the US! I've not heard of anyhting similar in the UK.

By the way, Kim, do you get a credit for referring people? I know a lot of subscription services offer things like that :) if so, can you email me it? I might have to sign up for some upcoming birthday gifts and would love for you to get the credit for introducing it to us! xx

Nails My Dreams said...

Oh wow!! A dessert subscription box?? I want one! lol. I wish someone in my country will make one too. Although given the delivery services here, I think the desserts have a high chance of being squashed and ruined... I can't wait to see the next box. lol.

i'm so glad this isn't available here - i'd totally subscribe and it will absolutely ruin my eating! they look delicious kim!

Holy **** ! Those peanut butter cakes look absolutely incredible ! I wish we had something like this in the UK.

It's tough to find good sweets online here. Especially those peanut butter themed. I don't think the UK has caught onto these trends.

We can't even get Peanut butter m&m's.
