Orange Glad is back with another collection of fabulous sweet treats. Woo hoo! I can’t tell you how much I look forward to receiving this box each month. The September shipment arrived in a branded box containing two small ice packs to keep the goodies cool. Inside the second white box, the featured desserts were carefully wrapped and packaged. There was also a card that described each of this month’s items. Let’s check them out…
These delicious Raspberry Twists are the perfect companion to a warm cup of coffee. The buttery pastry is filled with ribbons of sweet raspberry jam and silky cream cheese. The combination is crazy good! I really enjoyed the light, flaky texture. Irene’s Bakery is an all natural food manufacturer delivering the highest quality artisan bakery and prepared foods products.
This sweet treat is sure to give you an extra jolt in the morning! The Awaken Baked all natural cookie contains the caffeine equivalent of one shot of espresso. It features a unique blend of organic coffee, chocolate chips and sea salt. I absolutely loved the chocolate-espresso flavor and the soft texture. I’ll wake up to this cookie any day.
As a self-proclaimed foodie, I enjoy unique, gourmet ingredients. I was a fan of this shortbread cookie that delivered a delicate floral taste. The lavender baked into each cookie is picked from the fields at Eatwell Farms in Dixon, California. The cookies themselves are bite-sized and very buttery. The lavender flavor may not appeal to everyone, but I liked it.
I have a soft spot for meringues, so I was excited to taste these gourmet goodies from Studmuffin Desserts. This online bakery offers tasty artisanal baked goods prepared from scratch. I thought the meringue itself was melt-in-your-mouth good, but I didn’t care for the addition of the chocolate chips. The texture and flavor would have been better off without them.
This cinnamon roll is huge and more than enough to feed two people. I popped it in the microwave to warm it up before sampling it. The pastry was very fluffy and the cinnamon paste had a nice flavor. However, I didn’t think there was enough frosting and the cinnamon roll wasn’t as sticky or moist as I would have liked.
The month proved to be another tasty shipment from Orange Glad! I enjoyed the variety of desserts from bakeries across the United States. My favorite item this month was Irene’s Bakery & Gourmet Kitchen Raspberry Twists. The pastry had a great fruit flavor and the long twist was fun to eat. This subscription makes a great gift and I’ve already given it to my friends who have a serious sweet tooth. Did you receive the September Orange Glad box? What did you think?
