OrangeGlad, sweets from artisan bakeries, $22/month
Promo: LACOOKIES15 for 40% off or SPRING30 for 30% off
OrangeGlad is a subscription box that sends you goodies from bakeries around the country. It’s a great concept but it’s pretty expensive at $22 a month, in particular because they send very few treats. This box had a value of approximately $15. They do have coupons, though, and if you catch a good one and use it on a 6 month subscription, you can bring your costs to the low teens. I got this box with a $15 off coupon, so I only paid $7. It was worth it for that price.
Apparently the box used to have packaged much more nicely. It’s pretty utilitarian now. This is what it had:
Itty Bites from OrangeGlad
Chocolate Almond Macaroon from Smackaroons
Kiss Me I’m Irish Cake Pop by Sweet E’s Bake Shop
Russian Tea Cakes from Lark’s Fine Foods
San Juan Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar by Seattle Chocolates
Itty Bites from OrangeGlad, bag of 10, est value $5
These are cute and tiny little shortbread cookies. I’m estimating their value because they are not currently for sale at OrangeGlad. Unlike regular shortbread these were pretty short and came with instructions to eat right away (as if I wouldn’t). We all thought they were delicious.
This was your run of the mill macaroon. Delicious like macaroons are. I did find it a little dry, however, which is to be expected.
I love red velvet cake and this cake pop was very good – but also pretty generic as far as red velvet cake goes.
Russian Tea Cakes from Lark’s Fine Foods, 3 cookies, est. value $1.15
I’m a fan of Russian tea cakes and these were delicious – though a bit on the dry side.
San Juan Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar by Seattle Chocolates, value $3.5
This was probably my favorite item in the box. Oh so good. Unfortunately I left it out and my dog ate most of it. But I’ll keep an eye for these bars ’cause they are yummy.
Unsubscribing from OrangeGlad was quick and easy, just took an e-mail.
