Subscriptions: Orange Glad July 2014 Review


Seattle's Favorite Gourmet Cookies and Dessert Co. Cranberry Muffin Top: I've never understood the "top of the muffin is the best part of the muffin" argument, but this looked like a pretty good pastry regardless. I had high hopes but when I bit into it, it just wasn't as good as I had expected. I think these would be amazing fresh out of the oven, but during shipping the condensation made it a little soggy and nothing grosses me out more than soggy pastries.

Lily's Bakery Shop Chocolate Babka: This bread was super duper rich, way too rich and dark tasting for me. If you like dark chocolate you'd probably love this but it wasn't for me. R liked it though which was good.

Chocolate Maven Hazelnut Cheesecake Brownie: At first I took a bite of just the chocolate part and it was way too dark for my liking. So I tried the whole thing and I ended up liking it. These too would be amazing fresh out of the oven but they lose a lot in the shipping process.

Gianna's Homemade Baked Goods Freedom Star Sugar Cookies: These were my favorite things in the entire box- I wish I'd have just gotten a box full of them! I'm a huge sugar cookie fan and even though they crumble they don't lose much taste while being shipped. I think I might order some more of these.

Orange Glad Ice-Dream Sandwich: This looked so good and I had such high hopes for it and it was just... not good. The only real flavor was sugar and it was just too much. I think if the filling had been a different flavor and there was more taste to the cookie it'd have been really good, but it was sugar on top of sugar and just not good.

I was so excited for this box and the past two months have been really meh. I'm going to give it a few more months and see how it goes but so far I'm not too impressed.


  1. I love the idea of this box, but it does seem like it would be tough to execute when you factor in shipping time! At least you did find one new favorite though!


    1. Yeah I wish they'd include more chocolate/ candy because that ships way better! I just love sweets, hahaha!
