Greyston Bakery Walnut Fudge Brownie 

Greyston provides individuals in Southwest Yonkers, NY with employment, skills and resources to help them escape poverty. This delectable Walnut Fudge Brownie is made from a delicious combination of unsweetened and semi-sweet chocolate and huge chunks of walnuts. This rich, chewy treat does not skimp out on the nuts! I loved every chocoaltely bite.

Cafe Valley Bakery Petite Chocolate Chip Muffins

What better way to start your mornings than with these petite chocolate chip muffins? Each adorable, bite-sized muffin is packed with chocolate chips that give the treat a sweet balanced taste. I was really impressed with the fluffy, moist texture as well. These muffins would pair perfectly with a warm cup of coffee or tea. YUM!

Wicked Whoopies Red Velvet Whoopie 

Oh my goodness! I was so excited when I saw this giant whoopie pie. Soft red velvet flavored whoopie cake shells surround a thick layer of sweet fluffy cream filling. The chocolate taste of the cake combined with the luscious center is almost too good to be true. Wicked Whoopies offers over 20 mouth-watering varieties of Whoopies pies, and I want to try them all.

Greyston Bakery Brown Sugar Blondie

I already mentioned the awesome work that Greyston does in the previous description. The bakery also has an Opening Hiring policy that begins with an apprenticeship program. This Brown Sugar Blondie features light brown sugar, semi-sweet chocolate, and a hint of vanilla extract. The soft texture is great and the blondie packed tons of flavor!

Truffle Cake Co, Sinful Red Velvet & Peanut Butter Paradise

NOTE: My Orange Glad box was left outside for a few hours on a hot day which caused the truffles to melt and change shape. Normally, the truffles are perfectly spherical and gorgeous looking!

The Truffle Cake Co. is a family-oriented business started by Mariam Hart in Gainesville, Florida. These delicious bite-sized desserts are carefully crafted in small handmade batches using only the finest ingredients. The Sinful Red Velvet flavor is super rich and chocolately and the Peanut Butter Paradise variety is smooth and packed full of nutty flavor! I love them both.

verdict

The April Orange Glad box is a total winner! My favorite item from this month’s shipment is the Wicked Whoopies Red Velvet Whoopie. It’s so light and fluffy, shareable, and not to mention totally FUN to eat. But seriously, all of the featured desserts in this package were absolutely yummy and oh-so enjoyable. I look forward to Orange Glad every month…it’s the perfect treat!

Punk-Inspired Necklace

This blinged out necklace will add some serious rocker edge to your look. This piece features a braided black rope adorned with jeweled embellishments and gold dangling pieces. The gold-colored chain is adjustable as well, making this statement necklace perfectly wearable for any woman.

Dangle Earrings

Hello, gorgeous! These dangle earrings are the perfect pairing to a sleek evening outfit. The length draws the focus down to your neck and collarbone, which is totally flattering. I love the small bead pieces at bottom of the earrings too. I’d pair these brown-gold colored earrings with a classic black cocktail dress.

Monogram Hair Tie

Say goodbye to boring hair styles with this adorable monogrammed hair tie. This accessory features a no-snag black elastic band and a circular jeweled piece with your initial. Keep your luscious locks in place while looking stylish at the same time. I used this hair tie with a fishtail braid and it looked great!

Teardrop Earrings

These versatile teardrop earrings are the perfect spring accessory. The earrings have a delicate gold-colored teardrop shape which is enhanced with some small gems and beads. The overall look is really chic and these earrings would go well with a number of different outfits. I can’t wait to wear these this weekend!

Wow! I was totally impressed with Jewel Spring. Each piece of jewelry fits my personal style and has a unique, modern look to it. My favorite item this month is the punk-inspired necklace.
