Treatsie April 2015 review

I still had some store credit to use and they were offering some of my favorite brands! I just couldn’t resist. I really loved the Dallas Caramel Co armadillos and they were selling them along with the horned toads, so I got double just to make sure I got my share of armadillos. I already re-ordered the Tahana Confections caramels before and I’ll probably keep getting them. This time, they also changed up their packaging and info card a bit.

Treatsie is $15 per box + $4.95 shipping and comes with artisan candy from 3-4 brands (I am grandfathered in for $15 for 2-3 brands and fewer items). That means about 6 or 7 different flavors of treats (or 4 or 5 for me). Boxes are sent monthly with no option to skip. They offer a referral link program to earn store credit.

B. T. McElrath Chocolatier chocolate bites in Super Red, Buttered Toast, Prairie Dog, Dark Chocolate Caramel: Yuuuuummy! What a luxurious bite of chocolate with each of these. They’re very firm, crisp pieces bursting with flavor. I found the bite-sized pieces to be perfect so I sure hope they offer them like that. These are wonderfully tasty morsels.

Tumbador chocolate Pretzel Poppers, Corn Nut Dragée, & PB&J: Adorable packaging, but I couldn’t figure out how to open those boxes without ripping them entirely (oh wait, I just used the bottom instead). The pretzel poppers have a nice powdery coating and are larger. Both the poppers and the corn nut dragée are delightfully crunchy and fun to eat. The chocolate bar had a surprising layer of raspberry pâte that was sort of like fruit leather, so when I tried to break off a piece, it wouldn’t break. The peanut praline is contrasted against that with a nice crunch. This is a great twist on PB&J, though I’m not into those snacks.

Malvi Marshmallow Confections cookie sandwich in Vanilla Salted Caramel: Wow, these are rich. Each sandwich is a fluffy, crumbly mouthful of sweetness. The vanilla is fragrant and the salt helps even out the sweetness. They’re more heavy than my typical fare, so one at a time is more than enough.

Dallas Caramel Company ArmadillosHorned Toads: These are made from the same ingredients – caramel, dark chocolate, and pecans. I prefer the armadillos because of the crunch of the dark chocolate and pecans against the soft caramel. With the horned toads, the caramel and chocolate are swirled so the whole thing is softer. I enjoy crispness though. Unfortunately the deal to add this to my box did not allow me to separate the two and only get the armadillos that I really wanted (so I just ordered twice as much instead).

Tahana Confections caramels in Salted & Vanilla: When I was ordering this, I mistook the salted for ganache with sea salt (my ultimate fav). Alas, I didn’t get my favorite flavor, but I do love the fragrance of their vanilla and I certainly like the salted too. Next time I’m getting just vanilla and ganache again, since those are my top picks!

I love the treats and have been getting better about eating them all instead of trying to hoard some for a rainy day. I mean, what sort of rainy day am I waiting for anyway? Which treats would you want? To get Treatsie, sign up with my link and get your first box free!
