Orange Glad: June 2014 Review

After receiving such an amazing box last month, I couldn’t wait for this month’s Orange Glad (who kindly sent me this box to review) to arrive! And when it did, I was pleasantly surprised to see a revamped look of their packaging. It seems like many subscriptions are rebranding this summer!

If you’re not familiar with OG, it’s a monthly subscription that starts at $13/mo. and includes all kinds of amazing desserts (and they’re not always as bad for you as you think.. so you don’t feel AS guilty eating them). Check out the goodies in June’s box below!

The Cravory Salted Caramel Cream Cookie
The Salted Caramel Cream Cookie ($3) was my favorite item in June’s box! A cookie filled with vanilla chips, salt, and caramel, this one didn’t last long at all! I’ve never tried this combo of ingredients in a cookie before but I’m very interested in trying to replicate these now!

Sconehenge Baking Co. Luscious Lemon Bar
I love lemon cake, bars, etc. so I was pretty excited to find the Luscious Lemon Bar ($4) upon opening my box. I have to admit I was a little disappointed that there was a shortbread crust, as I prefer the whole bar/cake to be super soft, but nonetheless, I still really enjoyed this one!

Cheryl’s Buttercream Summer Cookie
I’m very familiar with Cheryl’s Buttercream Cookies ($5) – I’ve sent quite a few of their cookie greetings to my friends! These are very tasty and I love the different designs you can get them in (this one is summer-themed). Loved seeing them included!

Lily’s Bakery Shop Hamantashen
The name sounds familiar, but I’ve never tried Hamantashen ($2) before. At first glance I thought it would be similar to a cookie with raspberry filling (that’s what it looks like) – and it did. This kosher dessert was pretty good but the cookie part was much different than expected (not as sugary or soft). I guess that’s where these differ from normal jelly-filled cookies!

Rip van Wafels Traditional Amsterdam Wafel
The Traditional Amsterdam Wafel ($1.60) was the only pre-packaged item in June’s Orange Glad box, having a 6-month lifespan until expiration (like a dessert would ever last 6 months in my house)!  It was noted that this treat (think flattened waffle cone with thin syrupy layer) is especially fab when heated up, but I’m not a big fan of warm desserts so I tried it at room temperature and it was delicious! What’s even better is that the Wafel is only 150 calories!

I think it’s impossible to go wrong with Orange Glad – their sweet treat finds are the best! Since they’re California-based, most of their finds come from the west coast, which is nice since I don’t get out there often!

What types of desserts would you like to see in upcoming Orange Glad boxes?
