Treat Chest comes in a cute box that looks like a wooden chest.

First Look.  I looked for an information card, but there was not one included in the box.

074

Rock Candy est .65 cents $5.30 total A multipack of 8 Rock Candy sticks were included.  There were no flavors marked on the package, so I am not sure what all the flavors.  My boys tried the blue, which were blueberry and my boys said they were fantastic.

Kookaburra Liquorice Strawberry & Cream Bites

Kookaburra Liquorice Strawberry & Cream Bites $2.59  These licorice bites are soft and chewy, and have a nice strawberry cream flavor.

Albanese 12 Flavor Gummies

Albanese 12 Flavor Gummies $2.19 These are fatter than other gummy bears and contain flavors like Wild Cherry, Strawberry, Pink Grapefruit, Orange, Mango, Lemon, and Green Apple.  They are gluten free, fat free, and have low sodium.  These soft bears had a great (almost natural) flavor and were total hit with my family.

Jelly Belly 30 Assorted Jelly Bean Flavors

Jelly Belly 30 Assorted Jelly Bean Flavors $5.50  The classic Jelly Belly in a 7 oz bag.  With over 30 flavors per bag, there is something for everyone.  I personally love the juicy pear and buttered popcorn.  What are your favorite flavors?

Taffy Town Frosted Cupcake Taffy

Taffy Town Frosted Cupcake Taffy $1.93  Soft and super fresh, this taffy is frosted cupcake flavored and was my husband’s favorite treat in the box.

Giant Smarties

Giant Smarties  .18 cents bulk price, roughly  .40 cents retail  It’s hard to tell by the picture, but these Smarties are twice the diameter as regular Smarties.  My boys gobbled these right up!

074

Final Thought: The total value of this box was $17.91.  The Rock Candy may sell for a bit more, but most of my prices came from the manufactures’ online store.  While the candy was really tasty, I was really disappointed in the retail value.  This box cost $32.99 including shipping and $17.91 doesn’t come close.  I am not sure what happened to the promised $54.00 value.  While this box provided a really fun movie night treat, the value needs to improve.  If you are interested in checking out Treat Chest, use this link.

    OUCH! Sounds like they’re using tourists-will-pay-anything-for-candy-on-vaca prices!! Movie night with movie theater concession prices! Thanks for the heads up-it looks delicious but I’d be SO angry at the cost of this one. Will wait for better value.

    Yes, it was disappointing for sure :(.
