If you’d like to find out more about what to expect read our review on the September Box or October Box… Don’t judge, it’s not a subscription worth cancelling. It’s a sweet, sweet sin we’re happily indulging in.
Overall you can expect to find three 500ml tubs jam packed with sweets. One artisanal homemade product and a variety of loose treats inside the box. The one thing you can be certain of is that there is zero space wastage and your box will be jam-packed with delicious goodness.
Each and every box is professionally branded and packed to the brim. You don’t have to worry about treats falling out and the added bonus is that the treats remain a surprise until you remove the Washi Paper. The three tubs found inside can also be re-used for your tools, hair accessories or pretty much anything small and loose lying around.
It’s clear that the Sweetie Box owners genuinely love what they do and take great care in providing you not just with tasting pleasure but also a visually appealing delivery.
I honestly feel like I am selling this company to you but in truth I’ve just had a marvelous experience with them. Not only is the service fast, efficient and professional but so is the personal service. You can find them on Facebook and Instagram where they post regularly to keep you informed about deliveries and also tease you with treats from previous boxes. If you’re expecting to find spoilers from what’s to come don’t hold your breath, these sweet masters know how to keep a secret.
Most of the need to know information is on their site so you’ll never really have to deal with customer support. However, if at some point you choose to end your subscription or contact them with a question or query you can expect a swift response within 24 hours. As with all things they do the customer support is first class and you’ll end the conversation with a smile and a happy heart.
Sweetie Box is a highly recommended subscription box for anyone who loves sweet treats and discovering new things. The box is filled to the brim and you’ll never open it only to be left with disappointment.
The only thing to be weary of is that you have to unsubscribe at least a month before the next box arrives or you’ll have to pay for that box. On the bright side you get to tease yourself with just one more delicious box of goodness before you say goodbye to it.
If you’re trying to watch your weight stay away! You might think you have self-control but once you open that box and feast your eyes on all the delicious treats waiting for you there’s no going back.
