I love the fork attached to the inside lid! The enclosed product card includes details on each item and the best before dates. Depending when your box arrives, you generally have 1-2 weeks to enjoy the items in the box.

The packaging was a bit more secure than last time. Along with the cardboard separator and crinkle paper, each item was wrapped or covered with bubble wrap. The loose packaging was really my only complaint with my last box, and they've taken steps to solve that issue. 

Cake-Ology Red Velvet Cake Jar
A soft red velvet cake mixed with vanilla icing.
This was tasty, although the icing was very sweet. I love the cake in a jar concept. Great party favour idea!

Desserts Plus Chai Tea Gourmet Marshmallows
A fluffy marshmallow with a refreshing taste of chai. 
This is the only thing in the box I didn't care for. The marshmallows were good and soft, but the chai flavour was a bit overwhelming.

These truffles are surrounded by a chocolate shell that keeps the cake soft and moist.
I'm mortified by the state of these truffles. I wasn't able to pick up the box from the post office right away, and then when I did get it, I dropped it. Hard. It seems that the truffles took the brunt of the abuse. Thankfully, they still tasted fantastic. The mocha one was my favourite.

Jonnies Sticky Buns Salted Caramel Brownie
A soft chocolate brownie drizzled with a caramel topping.
This was delicious. The brownie was dense and chewy - just how I like them. The salted caramel topping was a nice addition. I'm bummed I had to share half with my boyfriend!

Shortbread in the shape of a  moustache with chocolate icing.
This was a great item to include in the November box. The Movember cause is huge at my workplace.

A mocha flavoured biscotti dipped in chocolate. Perfect for dipping in coffee! 
This was great biscotti. Not rock hard like some, with a hint of mocha flavour. The chocolate dipped end was a nice bonus too. 

The November Bakers Krate included six items from bakeries all across Winnipeg. I really liked the variety of the items and the creativity behind some of them is impressive. My favourite is the brownie, followed by the red velvet cake in a jar. I might have to steal that idea.

  3. I love the treats but I just can't justify the $30 cost for five treats and two truffles... I know it's not their fault that shipping is so pricey. Too bad, I would have loved box.

  4. I guess it is indeed expensive for a few treats and 2 truffles, but to me it is the element of surprise that makes it worth it. Plus I try to stretch out the treats for a week :)
