July Treatsie Box

Everyone loves a treasure and a treat is definitely a treasure. Treatsie is a monthly subscription box that sends out high end sweets that you wouldn't normally find at common grocery stores. The nice thing about Treatsie is they support small business by sending out their items and including them in their online store. Every month they send 3-4 artisan sweets from small, independent vendors. The cost of the box is $15 plus $4.95 shipping making it a total of $19.95 a month. Each box has a guaranteed value of $20-$25.

This subscription box is available in the US only. 

The Good:

Sweet Tooth? This will definitely fulfill your sweet tooth need. 

Support small business: Supporting small business is super important. 

Want more? Treatsie has an online shop where you can buy the items from the box and they frequently have sales. 

Gourmet items: These are definitely not item you would find in your local big supermarket. 

Value: The guarantee valued is more than the priced paid. Awesome!

The Not So Good:

Skip a month. I didn't find any info on skipping months. 

This is the box that was inside the shipping mailer. Also the mailer was thick with a cold pack in it. 

This is in the inside of the box with the description card. 


Contents of Treatsie box:

Shotwell Candy Co. Hand Crafted Espresso Caramels. Value = $3.50 - I can't resist a handmade caramel. The espresso was a nice mix, not to strong but definitely noticeable. 

Shotwell Candy Co. Hand Crafted "Old Fashioned" Cocktail Caramels. Value $3.50 - can't go wrong with handmade toffee. 

Raley's Confectionary Treatsie Variety Mix. Value = $6.00

Seattle Chocolates Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar. Value = $3.50 

Seattle Chocolates Dark Chocolate Truffle Bar. Value = $3.50

Seattle Chocolates Total Toffee Truffle Bar. Value = $3.50 - This chocolate bar is really thick and I liked the crunchy toffee inside. 

The total value of this box is $23.50. I thought this box was delicious! I loved that they sent full size chocolate bars although that's the last thing I need to be eating. So far I've only had a piece of the toffee one but that dark chocolate has been calling my name. Speaking of chocolate I thought it was super cool that they put a cool pack in the package. When I opened the envelope the cool pack was melted but the chocolate wasn't. It's been in the upper 90's so the chocolate would've for sure melted without the cool pack. Also the pack is reusable and I'm definitely going to reuse it, so bonus! 

Verdict: This is a great box if you want gourmet sweets.
