Attention Foodies! Today, I bring you a completely new deliciously mystical subscription box catering to your sweet tooth. You know my love for monthly boxes so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that a premium dessert box was on the leash. Say hello to The GingerBread Box for the ultimate ‘sugar rush’ experience in UAE.
Though I couldn’t make it to the Taste of Dubai event, dear Safiyah from The Gingerbread Box sent over a hint TOD goodness to my office. The Gingerbread Box is a mystery box subscription with 3-5 gourmet & artisan sweet treats designed to satisfy the most ridiculous of cravings & take you on a journey to sugar heaven.
Subscription packages are monthly, three or six months with prices ranging from AED 89-99 per month (shipping included). Price worth paying for the ultimate ‘cheat day’ experience with premium brands, gourmet bakeries, and chocolate connoisseurs.
So how are the desserts? Here’s a quick rundown of everything that was included in this Taste of Dubai inspired subscription box.
COOKIES & CREAM GOURMET POPCORN BY POPCORNPOLIS: This popcorn is ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY AMAZING. Yes, I am typing in all caps. As soon as you open the bag, you smell OREOS. The popcorn is FRESH and crunchy. The crushed oreo cookies that’re layered on just taste SUPERB! I can’t stop raving about it. You can taste each and every layer. It’s a delight to munch on. I’ll definitely order more and so glad I was introduced to this company.
CHOCOLATE CAKEPOP BY CUP N CAKES DUBAI: It’s cakepopolicious – Not only was this chocolate cakepop appealing but also finger licking delicious. The melted milk chocolate colored in red was enough to fly me off to the wonders of Candyland.
LEGENDARY BROWNIE BY OUSHE GOURMET BAKESHOP: These chocolatey rich & moist brownies taste so good & melt in your mouth right away. It smelled absolutely intoxicating and felt like a party in my tummy. I’d say it’s more like fudge – but for that reason, it makes one of the most delicious brownies I’ve ever had
ASSORTED COOKIES BY BOULEVARD GOURMET: The fresh cookies were the biggest hit in my office, a royal treat indeed from Radisson Blu Hotel in Deira Creek. GingerBread Box delivers as it claims of serving Premium desserts.
SMORES JAR BY LOOSHIS: Unlike the traditional messy Smores that I love, these came in a jar (the mini mason jar caught my attention from the very first moment), maybe the idea behind was to introduce us me to a more civilized way of eating them. Though it was filled with Nutella, peanut butter, marshmallow goodness, it has to be my least favorite treat among the lot mainly because of the packaging.
Should I Buy This Box?
Verdict: This was a pretty solid box from TGBB! All of the treats were delicious, but I particularly enjoyed the Cookies & Cream Popcorn and Chocolate Cakepop. In terms of cost, this subscription doesn’t offer extremely superb value for 99AED, But I think it’s a lot of fun to explore new brands launching in UAE via GingerbreadBox. Honestly, receiving a giant box of sweet every month always puts a smile on my face!
