The light blue box

Izard Chocolate
Original Caramels

Super soft, buttery bites shine with classic caramel flavor and visible vanilla bean specks.

Why we love them:

If you’re looking for a true caramel flavor, look no further than these pillowy bites of deliciousness. While I have a soft spot for sea salt caramels, these are authentic and delicious without a trace of salt. And they’re so soft – they melt before you can even wonder if they will get stuck in your teeth (they won’t).

Grey Ghost Bakery
Chocolate Espresso Cookies

Sophisticated, rich, and mellow. Decadent chocolate with a kiss of espresso creates an indulgent treat.

Why we love them:

Coffee always intensifies the flavor of chocolate and these are the perfect balance, even if you are a diehard “no coffee” person. The sugar on the outside makes for a satisfying crunch. Enjoy these cookies with a cup of coffee or tea. If you like them, check out this recipe to turn them into German chocolate sandwiches.

Grey Ghost Bakery
Cinnamon Pecan Cookies

A new take on a southern tradition: Buttery cookies are rolled in toasted pecans and cinnamon for a delicious crunch.

Why we love them:

I’m a sucker for pecans and these cookies have just the right amount of them, and they work perfectly with the cinnamon for a lovely afternoon snack.

Raley’s Confectionary
Acid Drops Hard Candy

An old-fashioned sour candy with plenty of flavor. Assortment contains green apple, orange, cherry and raspberry.

Why we love them:

Tart, sweet and perfectly popable make these candies so much fun. Throw the bag in your car for a sweet pick-me-up during that boring evening commute.

Chewie Fruities

Organic candy chews in delicious flavors such as meyer lemon and raspberry, pomegranate and nectarine, blood orange and honey.

Why we love them:

Chewy without being sticky, these chews are what Starburst wished they were. Plus these flavors are deliciously high end without being pretentious. Give me all the Meyer lemon and raspberry and nobody gets hurt.

Finally Ginger
Original Ginger Cookies

Sugar and lots of spice makes everything nice. Baked with three kinds of ginger, indulge in these spicy and sweet cookies.

Why we love them:

These cookies remind me of Christmas and the smell of a gingerbread house. They are crisp without being crunchy and not exactly soft, but they’re perfect. The occasional speck of whole ginger makes for a spicy surprise!

Belgian Boys
Caramel Stroopwafels

Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The best of both worlds is given to you in an authentic Dutch waffle cookie filled with an irresistible caramel filling.

Why we love them:

First, just say the word “stroopwafel” out loud, and once you stop giggling, let’s get down to taste. Crunchy and chewy? The Dutch know what’s up. And these are as fascinating as they are delicious. Bonus points for finding a new way to deliver caramel. I had to eat both waffles before I could finally figure out why it tasted familiar – Biscoff. These are like chewy, cinnamon-y waffle-y Biscoff cookies. I’ll take another.
