Orange Glad is a monthly subscription box that features gourmet desserts. Cookies, brownies, cakes, candies — if you’ve got a taste for sweets, this is totally a box for you!
Orange Glad carefully selects the yummiest treats from sweets shops and bakeries all over the country. Each dessert box will contain five deluxe gourmet treats delivered fresh to your door. The info card indicates when you should eat each treat in order to ensure maximum freshness.
I was recently sent June’s Sweet Box for review, and while I didn’t expect any of the items to be vegan (they’re not), I was still excited to see what was inside. (Plus I love giving my family all the goodies that I can’t eat!) Alright, let’s see what they sent this month!
The “main” box had another, smaller box inside of it that contained all of the sweets. Fancy!
As always, the info card listed everything that was included, along with their ingredients on the reverse side.
Cheryl’s Buttercream Summer Cookie – I’ve heard of Cheryl’s Cookies before and word on the street is that they’re pretty awesome. This one is a buttercream sugar cookie shaped like a flower and decorated with bright yellow frosting. My husband is a huge fan of super sweet, frosted cookies so I’m sure he’ll love this. (Oh — just an FYI — Cheryl’s is on Ebates! Get 9% cash back with every order. Woo!)
Fine Sconehenge Baking Co. Luscious Lemon Bar – I don’t think I’ve ever actually had a lemon bar, but this looks really good. I should have taken a photo of the side view to show you the creamy, lemon-y goodness inside. It has a shortbread crust and is dusted with powdered sugar (which got kinda gooey in the heat). I’d love to try a vegan version of this. Mmm.
Rip Van Wafels Traditional Amsterdam Wafel – I’ve gotten one of these in another box (I think it was Love With Food) and saw nothing but rave reviews on ’em. It’s suggested that you enjoy the waffle treat with a hot beverage and place it on top of the cup so the steam warms it.
Lily’s Bakery Shop Hamantashen – This is a traditional cookie that’s often eaten during the Jewish holiday of Purim. It’s a triangular pastry with a fruit-filled center. I’m not sure which fruit, but the ones available on their site are poppy seed, raspberry, and apricot. They’re all made in Lily’s kosher bakery in NYC.
The Cravory Salted Caramel Cream Cookie – This cookie is made with salted caramel made in-house at The Cravory. It’s full of rich vanilla chips and sprinkled with a dusting of sea salt.
Every time I review an Orange Glad box, I desperately wish someone would come out with a vegan version of it. (You hearing this, Orange Glad? Do it!! 😉 ) I would kill for a monthly box of vegan baked goods. Getting all of these treats and not eating them is a wee bit torturous. Yep. Torturous.
Orange Glad is $15/month plus shipping (less with longer subscriptions), but you can get your first box for 10% off when you click here and use the code “YUMMY10” at checkout. Not sure how long that code’s good for, so when it expires, you can get 5% off your first box when you click here and use the code “ROSEBUDS5“. Oh, and you can also order a box with double the treats for just $12 more!

The butter cookie was sooooo good! This was a great box, I actually cancelled my subscription but think ill re-sub now. I don’t know if I can handle seeing blog posts of these boxes and not being able to eat any of it.
haha Yeah, it’s hard being vegan and not getting to taste any of it! 😉
