The items in the box:

This months theme: My New Years Resolution: Eat More Sweets!

1.) The Crispery Chocolate Brownie Crispy Cake:I have tried this brand in the past and it never disappoints. If you are a huge Marshmellow Rice Crispy Treat lover than you will love these! They make them in all different flavors and they are HUGE. Since they are so big I ate it over multiple days and in a plastic baggie it held up well and did not get hard at all. I was a huge fan of this flavor as well since I love Brownies. This was my favorite item in the box. $4.95

2.) Theo Organic Fair Trade Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: I was skeptical of these at first since I have tried other organic peanut butter cups before which were very bitter and gross. However, I actually enjoyed these one's. It taste's like a little bit of a healthier version of a Reese's and I noticed the chocolate cup was a bit more thicker than on a Reese's. Due to the price, I would probably stick with Reese's over these but if you are looking for a good Organic PB Cup than I would highly suggest trying these out. $2.29

3.) Bobo's Bites: Apple Pie: I have seen these at the store before and I must say since they are vegan I was hesitant since I have tried a few vegan treats before that just tasted horrible (this was a few years ago, so maybe brands have learned how to make vegan taste better). This actually was not bad. I would not say it made me crave another one- I feel like it was missing the type of sugar or sweetener that makes you but it was a nice small snack to bring to work. $1.09

4.) Lovely Caramel Chews: I am not a huge caramel person. I enjoy it in a twix bar but am not into caramels themselves and hate all the chewing. I passed these on to my boyfriend who loves caramel and he liked them. This was also a great size bag that if you wanted to save it and give it to someone for Valentine's Day you could. $4.59

5.) Chocolate Covered Potato Chips: These were in SweetsGiftBox packaging but if you looked on the label it says that they were manufactured by Asher's Chocolate. These were SO good. I absolutely love chocolate covered potato chips. They were broken up into small pieces and I liked it since they were easier to eat and also they lasted longer since I did not eat so much at one time. The chocolate was spot on and mixed with the salted chip, yummy! $3.49 (estimated)

Total Value: $16.41 I thought this box was another hit. It is hard to say whether this box was better than last months as I enjoyed many things in each box and was able to gift what I did not want. I thought this box was great since it mixed in some unhealthy treats with some organic and vegan treats. It is a nice mix to have since not everyone likes the taste of some vegan things but it is nice to try them out anyway. My values are estimated and are online prices so the prices might be a bit more inflated in store and you have to remember that online you most likely have to pay shipping. Still I would like to see a little bit of a higher value- either an additional item, a couple of samples, or some coupons for the brands in the box could be thrown in to add a bit more value to the box. Overall though this is a great box if you are looking to try new treats.

  2. Your price are kind of low. Crispery is closer to $9.50.Lovely is closer to $8.00.

    1. Hi SZQ- you are right. Sometimes they are high. I know a store around me sells them in store for around $5, I saw them at the deli one time (for some reason), but that might have been a special promotion.
