OrangeGlad April 2015 Review and 40% Off Coupon Code!

There are so many good things in the April 2015 OrangeGlad Sweet Box! One of which is perilously close to being completely demolished before this review even gets written. The nice thing about OrangeGlad is that they send you treats you probably won't find anywhere else. I suppose that's both good and bad because then it's hard to get more but if it's hard to get more that means you can't eat too many. Right?

The Cost: $21/month

What You Get: Five deluxe size, carefully selected gourmet treats and sweets delivered once a month.

Zesty Cookie Company Hot Cocoa Cookies-So... I was thinking they'd taste like hot chocolate. No. My throat is currently burning. These have cayenne pepper in them. And chocolate. They taste like coconut until your mouth starts burning. I admit to being a wimp when it comes to spice, though. I made my husband eat these and didn't even notice!

A Couple of Squares Simple Good Chocolate Chip Biscuit- These are crispy and buttery. They have mini chocolate chips in them but these taste mostly of butter. I wish there were more chocolate chips.
Fairytale Brownies Original- Ohhh, thisss is amaaaazing. Soft, squishy, chocolatey goodness. So moist and delicious! My favorite kind of brownie. I just noticed on the packaging that it says you can put it in the microwave for warm brownie awesomeness. I hope I manage to save some in order to do that. Wow. Yum!

Toffee Talk Almond Toffee- This looks like almond roca to me, tastes like it too. I love almond roca so I have no complaints. Plus the packaging is so adorable.
Quin Candy Dreams Come Chew- This brand has popped up before in OrangeGlad. Last time it was lollipops that were basically flavorless and uninteresting. These, on the other hand, are packed with Cherry, Strawberry, Tangerine and Lemon flavor. The lemon is a little too much like Lysol but the rest were fabulous. They're chewy and sugarlicious. These were my favorite thing in the box until I tried the brownie. Now it's a tie.

VERDICT: OrangeGlad is a lot of fun and a good way to add a little spice to your dessert life. I like that they send so many baked goods, too. The variety is always great so there's sure to be something for everyone to love. I still think it's too expensive at the $21 price point so I only buy when there is a coupon code.

There's a coupon code now! Sign up here and use code MOTHERSDAY40S and get 40 percent off your entire subscription! That means if you get a six month, it makes your boxes a little over $11. And at that price, the boxes are totally worth it! I usually get a three month sub with these deals just because it seems more sensible to only spend $34 on dessert than $74 or whatever it is. I think the code is good til 5/2 so you've got time to debate with yourself. :)

  1. I loved the fairytale brownies! I actually ordered some for Mother's day for my mom!! I was slightly surprised at how much I loved it!! The Quin chews were great too! I think Lemon was the only one I haven't tried yet! That hot cocoa cookie was too much for me too, I can't handle spicy very well either ;)

    1. That brownie was so good. I ate half and then put the other half in the microwave for 10 seconds. So good! Your mom is going to love you!
      I'm glad Im not the only one who can't take too much spice. I'm serious, my throat was burning for like ten minutes and I only took two bites! I'm such a wimp. /sigh

  2. I ordered a one-off box last month and went to cancel and my account said I didn't have a subscription open...so I assumed that I canceled and forgot. Then they charged me for this month- I e-mailed them and they refunded me without an issue (yay good customer service) but it seems they sent me this box anyway! LOL- not complaining though! I agree about the spicy cookies...wtf is with that? Why ruin a good thing? LOL I loooved the candies although my hubs ate the lemon ones. The consistency is so unique! The brownie was so SO good- freakin sinfully good! LOL. I wish they had larger portions like they used to though- I feel like it's a bit overpriced for what they've been sending lately :( This was a pretty good box overall though

    1. They are so nice! I accidentally bought two subscriptions because I clicked the button twice and they emailed me and asked if I had meant to do that. I said no and thanked them for letting me know and they refunded the second accidental charge. SO nice!
      Yah, that brownie.... Good thing there was only one!
      The sale price is the only way these are worth it, in my opinion. Full price? no.

  3. Every time I think I'm out, they try to pull me back in with an awesome box like this! BUT I HAVE TO STAY STRONG (lol). Even with that 40% off promo code, I have to stay away from Orange Glad because I basically eat everything in the box within two days every single month (oops). XD
