I’ve been trying to eat healthier and stay on my fitness routine this summer, so I resisted the temptation to sign up for Treatsie, a sweets subscription service. Too bad my resolve only lasted 3 months…But okay, is it possible to say no to a free box of candy?? Treatsie was running a promotion for a free box with any monthly subscription, but unfortunately that code has expired. The new promo code gets you $10 off, which is still a great deal.
Treatsie is a subscription service that delivers $20-$25 worth of high-end artisan sweets each month. They source from a lot of small, independent companies, and only feature treats with high quality ingredients. The regular Sweets subscription is $15/month, plus $4.95 shipping and handling. Use promo code FRBUCO01 to get $10 off your first box!
They also have a Chocolate subscription for $39/month, plus $6.95 shipping and handling. You receive 5-6 full sized gourmet chocolate bars, which is a bit too pricey for me. But if you’re interested, the promo code CHOCOBOX50 to gets you 50% off your first box!
I was initially concerned about chocolate melting in the mail, since we’re talking about Texas heat which is serious business, but my box came in a very heavy insulated FedEx package with ice packs. All the items were actually kind of cold when I opened it up, so I think they’ve covered their bases really well with that.
I love that they list all the values for you as well as how much a full sized item would cost. I’m also a big fan of their shop, since I hate it when I fall in love with a product in a box and have no way of repurchasing!
Such beautiful packaging. I’ve been on the lookout for good subscription services to gift, and this one is at the top of my list. I think it would be a great one to give for the holidays. Am I thinking too far ahead?
Seattle Chocolates Truffle Bars (3) | $3.50 each
Delicious! And I’m loving that they’re all full sized bars. I got one Milk Chocolate bar, one Dark Chocolate bar, and one Total Toffee bar. Hands down my favorite is the toffee; I adore anything with toffee in it. These truffle bars are also non-GMO and gluten-free.
Raley’s Confectionary Treatsie Variety Mix | $6.00
Just looking at pictures of this place makes me want to visit and see the candy being made! These rock candies are so adorable, and the fact that each piece is made by hand makes it so much more special. The mix contains a bunch of different flavors including: lemon, grapefruit, pomegranate, cherry, watermelon, mango, and 9 others. I haven’t been able to try them all out yet, but the ones I have tried have been awesome!
Look at how cute these pieces are!
Shotwell Candy Co. “Old Fashioned” Cocktail Caramels | $3.50
Adorable packaging! I got three caramels in the little muslin bag, and they’re pretty big pieces. I love that this is inspired by the “Old Fashioned” cocktail, and it is infused with aromatic bitters, Kentucky bourbon whiskey, and orange extract. How fun!
Added this picture just so you can see how beautiful these caramels are!
Shotwell Candy Co. Hand-Crushed Espresso Caramels | $3.50
Equally delicious as the Old Fashioned ones. These have crushed espresso beans sprinkled on them, so it’s an interesting play with texture as well. I want to order a box of these for the office; they certainly helped keep me awake this morning!
This box was like made for me. I love caramels and hard candies, and the toffee chocolate bar was totally perfect. I couldn’t be more happy! But then again, I can’t imagine too many sweets that I don’t like. Maybe licorice? The total value for this box is $23.50, which is pretty good for a $15 food box. I’ve always considered food boxes to be less about value and more about the curation, so I don’t hold them to the same standard as a box like POPSUGAR Must Have. And besides, I got this box for free since it was my first, so absolutely zero complaints from me! Can’t wait to see what’s in the August box!
