Orange Glad Sweet Box Gourmet Desserts October 2014 Review + Discount Codes!

My Orange Glad box for October just arrived and I'm not wasting any time! This review needs to get written before I polish off the whole box.  If you missed my September review, please click here for all the details and pricing information.

This box of sweet treats is one of Orange Glad's best yet.  The only downside (upside?) is that most of these items are quite perishable due to their freshness and lack of preservatives.  That means you sort of have to go on a sweets binge every time an Orange Glad box arrives.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Inside the outer box is a smaller white gift box tied with a big yellow ribbon and nestled in a bed of brown crinkle shreds.

And here are the goodies...five baked treats and confections from sweet shops around the country!

The enclosed card pictures each item, gives information about it and tells you how quickly it should be consumed (very important, since these are all fresh items).  How often does anyone give you a FUN eating goal?

The first item to disappear from this box was a small package of two red velvet cake marshmallows. I like marshmallows and I love red velvet cake but this still seemed to be somewhat of an odd pairing to me.  That didn't stop me from scarfing them down, however.  (What a trooper I am!)

Next was a package containing two Burnt Sugar and Fennel Shortbread cookies from Lark Fine Foods.  I was skeptical about these but somehow, that combination worked and these vanished.  I give all the credit to the burnt sugar!

Orange Glad often packages one or more of their goodies in cute little striped bags tied with string.

Inside the bag is a luscious piece of "Harvest Carrot Cake" from the Fine Stonehenge Baking Co. This looks good but there's almost no frosting; isn't that against the law?  Oh well, I'll take one for the team.

The next item is a Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Handmade Tart from Megpies.  Although it looks like a gourmet Pop Tart, the taste and texture are the opposite of a Pop Tart....pure artisanal perfection.

I have saved the best for last....Pumpkin Pie Fudge from the Mill Fudge Factory.  I don't think I would ever cancel a food subscription that included some fudge in every box....would you?

That's it for October.  I thought Orange Glad did a great job of curating flavors and treats for a Fall oriented sweet treats box!

If you would like to join the sugar rush, use my code CHERYLOG3226 for a $5 credit on a new subscription.  You can also use code YUMMY10 for a 10% discount off a store purchase or new subscription.

If you've tried Orange Glad, let me know what you think!
