I first heard about The Gingerbread Box when they participated at the Taste of Dubai Fest this year. A very exciting concept indeed, its like a Glambox but instead of beauty products you get sweet treats!
As a person who has sweet tooth, The gingerbread box is a perfect way to treat yourself on cheat day. There are themes in which you get to try at least five different sweet treats, these themes are a surprise and are only revealed when you get the box. Also the sweet treats are gourmet and unique finds from nook & corners of UAE.

April TGB Review
At first I wasn’t sure of what to expect, I mean this is my first dessert box and after all I didn’t have anything to compare on. At same point of time I was extremely excited to know what sweet treats I am going to receive.
The mystery was unveiled when I received my box, it was a quick delivery. So this is how it looks like..
When I got the box, I felt like it was a present from me to me. So much fun to try out five gourmet delights for a mere price of AED 89 onwards. If I were to order these individually the sweet treats would certainly cost more.
My box contained very unusual mix of some well known brands. I have heard of most of these but had not tried them. In a way this box is kind of a sampler to me. As a food & lifestyle blogger I should be aware of unique finds and TGB curators have done that job already. There was a card mentioning the theme & also explains the contents of each products and allergy information which is essential.
My box contained the following products:
Russian Tea Bread by Baker & Spice – A perfect crisp bread full of nuts and my favorite fig. Delight to dip with some tea or have it by itself.
Artisan Rock Candy by Candy Me: Colorful candies full of flavor.
Irish Rose Shortbread by Zo’s Kitchen – an absolute delight, these little wonders are perfectly flavored with rose. I am not a person who loves flowers in my food but this shortbread was just subtly perfumed & delicate in taste.
Legendary Gluten free Brownie by Oushe: I am a brownie fanatic and very particular about them. I bake them but cant perfect them. However I think I found the perfect ones. These legendary brownies have been featured in this box for two months for a reason. Soft, moist, gooey & gluten free!
Glazed Zucchini Chia Cake by Barsalata : Who said cakes aren’t healthy? Mine had Zucchini & chia which are two of my favorite ingredients and perfect for that cheat day treat!
Check out the slideshow below for all the goodies I tried.
Overall, TGB has been an amazing experience for me. Two big finds from the box were the Barsalata Glazed Zucchini & Chia cake & the Legendary Oushe brownies. Both of these I had heard of but never got a chance to try until now. A bit disappointment was the Artisan candies which were nice but not exciting enough. Different though. Also the box contains product supplier information & discount vouchers which is great for orders post first trial.
If you are someone like me, cracking head on what to gift your loved ones, TGB is a great option. Your loved ones can enjoy the goodies, feel special & if you are lucky they might share some with you too! Fun idea isn’t it? Be it a guy or a girl everyone (well almost) loves sweet treats and TGB’s special curated boxes can just be a perfect surprise.
P.S: The box was provided to me for reviewing purposes, however the views remain unbiased as always. xx
