Summer is not the time for me to get overly creative in the kitchen. Cool fruit salads, no bake pies, and loads of ice-cream piled high with summer’s best fresh fruits is what I am dreaming of. It’s hot and steamy outside and I am not trying to be too adventurous in the kitchen as it just kicks up the heat and makes me hot and bothered! I prefer to lavishly live life out loud and receive a yummy, sweet subscription box to my doorstep that offers luxury indulgences screams DANA! Have you see the other boxes I have received? OrangeGlad makes you say, “orange you glad you found their site?” Here is a quick preview of my July box from OrangeGlad.
First things first, the packaging has always been nice, but this box was extra special. Notice the bags that needed unwrapped in order to really get the pastry shop feel? Inside each striped bag that had a tie sealing it was a wonderful sweet waiting to be devoured by me. My initial thoughts about the July box were that the presentation had been stepped up just a bit. There had always been food individually wrapped, with brown shred, but this time, the bags added to the presentation and the thrill of what might be contained in each bag. While the index card clearly tells you what you are receiving you can’t help but get giddy at opening a crinkling small sack that contains a sugary surprise right?
Here is the actual box in my video so you can see all the products.
Here is what I discovered once in the box.
A muffin top and I am glad that it was in the package and not around my belly(lol) as it was huge. Created from Seattle’s Favorite Gourmet Cookies and Dessert Company – A Cranberry Muffin Top and it was fruit filled!
The Freedom’s Star Sugar Cookie was the perfect way to remember last week was the 4th and celebrate it all over again with a crunch and bit of color a wonderful burst of sugary flavor!
OrangeGlad created an Ice-Dream Sandwich which was simply butter sugar cookies and icing all in one cookie- Dreamalicious.
The Chocolate Maven creates some of the best Hazelnut Cheesecake Brownies I personally have indulged in, as the rich chocolate paves the way to a great taste of creamy cheesecake and hazelnut.
The prize in the package was something that I thought tasted like the pannetones we exchange at the holidays in our home, but it looked like a piece of cinnamon toast. Chocolate Babka from Lilly’s Bakery Shop. This was sweet, light and reminiscent of coffee cake, lighter. The chocolate in the was like dining in Italy for breakfast while sitting at your own breakfast table.
