Orange Glad is a subscription box going after my sweets-loving heart. Their focus? Dessert.
A dessert subscription box?! How is it possible I didn’t subscribe before now?
With a subscription to Orange Glad you will receive five full-size gourmet desserts each month. Like most boxes, the treats they send out each month are a surprise.
Here’s what I received in the May Orange Glad Box:
Cranberry Orange Welsh Cakes – I’ll be honest with you. I opened up the box, took one look at these Welsh Cakes, and decided they’d be the last treat I’d try. I couldn’t imagine I’d like them all that much, but are these little treats ever surprising! According to the description, Welsh Cakes originate from Wales and are a cross between a cookie, a scone, and a pancake. If you heat them up for 20 seconds before consuming they are absolutely divine! I didn’t know that these existed, but now I may try to make them for myself. (Fun fact: They’re made on a griddle like a pancake!)
Baking Betty’s S’more Cookie & Peanut Butter Cup Cookie – To show what care Orange Glad goes to when shipping their boxes, these cookies were packaged together in a small padded freezer pack. This packaging not only prevented the cookies from breaking in the box, but it also kept the chocolate from melting. These cookies were really tasty! I enjoyed the peanut butter cup cookie (the smaller cookie) and gave my husband the s’more cookie. We both enjoyed our treats.
Cici’s Italian Butterhorns – When I first opened up the box I automatically assumed this was rugelach, based on the shape. I assume that a butterhorn is related to rugelach, but the taste was different. Butterhorns are hand-rolled cookies that are filled with cinnamon, sugar, and walnuts. They’re also coated in sugar and have a light buttery taste. They’re a little bit messy because of all of that sugar, but are they ever delicious! Apparently these cookies are great with morning coffee. From experience I can tell you that they also make great mid-afteroon snacks. 🙂
Fine Sconehenge Ultimate Brownie – When “gluten-free” became a thing a few years ago I remember trying a few gluten-free items and thinking they were pretty disgusting. My, how times have changed! Two weeks ago I picked up gluten-free cookies from a bakery here in Chicago and thought they were some of the most delicious cookies I’d ever had. Now, writing this is the first time I realized that the Fine Sconehenge brownie I’d happily and quickly consumed was also gluten-free. It was so tasty I didn’t notice the missing gluten. (Which is not to imply gluten has a taste necessarily, but since I don’t have a gluten intolerance I don’t normally seek out gluten-free snacks.)
While this was my first Orange Glad Box, I have to say that I am pretty impressed. I eat a LOT of desserts, but managed to find two new favorites just in this one box! Everything included was truly delicious. I’m not sure I will seek out these specific bakeries and place online orders, but I’m really happy to have learned about and tried each of the items that was included in the box.
Orange Glad costs $15 per month (less if you pre-pay for a 3 or 6 month plan) and shipping adds an additional $6.95 to the cost. Breaking it all down, each dessert cost about $4.39. That’s a little on the high side, unless you really love trying new desserts. (I plan trips out of town just to try new dessert locations, so I definitely think I fall into this demographic!) This new subscription box would make a fun dessert gift for your favorite dessert lover, whether that be yourself or another loved one!
My only complaint with Orange Glad? I wish I’d received more desserts! They do offer an option where for $12 more per month you can receive double the treats. I believe you will receive two of each treat in the box, which means you don’t have to divvy up your box to see who gets which treat!
I can’t wait for next month’s box to arrive!
