Treatsie March 2015 Standard Box (with Extra Sweets Coupon!) Review

Unlike some subscription boxes, Treatsie is not about providing lots of samples at a discount. Rather, we strive to help you discover high-quality sweets you love from the most talented chefs around the country.

I signed up for Treatsie since they have a coupon (EXTRASWEETS) right now that gives you “Double Sweets” when you purchase your first monthly box. I signed up for the Standard Box which is “up to $25 value in each box for just $15” plus $4.95 for shipping.

Our customer’s favorites from the last 3 months that are included in your first monthly box when you use the coupon code EXTRASWEETS when subscribing.

Here’s the example of the Standard Box they have on their website:

I do not eat a lot of candy but I was interested to try some high quality artisan sweets. And with the coupon granting double sweets, I couldn’t resist!

Unfortunately, what I received really did not feel like “double”. Here’s what I got:

  • J&M Foods Triple Chocolate Cookies – $8 (2.5oz)
  • Quin Fruit Lollipops (4) – $7
  • Sticky Toffee Pudding Co. Millionaire Shortbread – $3.50 (2 oz bar)
  • Zingerman’s Candy “What The Fudge?” Bar – $6 (3 oz bar)
  • Lambrecht Gourmet Southern Pecan Toffee – About $6 (3oz)
  • Avenue Sweets Caramels (5 Various Flavors) – About $0.50 each
  • Seattle Chocolates Birthday Cake Batter Pieces (4) – About $0.40 each

The total value is about $35, which is pretty decent for the $20 price. But I still felt like the ‘double sweets’ deal was misleading since the standard box shows about 4 ‘large’ items, while my ‘double sweets’ standard box only had 5 ‘large’ items and a handful of chews.

Despite this, my boyfriend and I LOVED the selection in our Treatsie box ESPECIALLY the Millionaire Shortbread. The box was a great treat for us to enjoy and we were somehow able to make it last for the entire week by only having a small amount each night as dessert.

Overall, I think this is a fun and unique box. We do not buy sweets, as we both try to eat healthier, but this was definitely a nice escape.
