March 2020 Gramma in a Box Review

I always look forward to reviewing Gramma in a Box, but this subscription is especially wonderful during the COVID-19 outbreak and everyone staying inside. Keep reading to see what goodies were in the March box!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

This month the box came with a little added protection and was shipped within a bubble mailer (past boxes were sent with just the box.

Gramma in a Box sends all the food ingredients you'll need to create three candy and cookie crafts. The only things you'll need to supply are simple items like a bowl and spoon for mixing.

Here are the pricing options:
  • Monthly: $20 per month (first box is only $10)
  • Three Months: $55 every three months (save $5)
  • Six Months: $110 every six months (save $10)
  • 12 Months: $220 every 12 months (save $20)
Shipping is free to the U.S. and taxes are included. If you want to cancel, do so by the 25th of the month. You can also try one box for $20 without a renewing subscription.

The March box was appropriately themed for St. Patrick's Day! The boxes contain enough supplies/ingredients to make 15 to 20 individual snacks. The crafts are fun and simple to do on your own or with your family.

The first craft was Shamrock Pretzel Pops. All of the crafts come with instruction cards that have ingredient and allergen information on the other side.

This project involved melting chocolate in the microwave and then using it to attach three pretzels to the pop rod, and then adding candies and sprinkles for decoration. I love how they come together to look like shamrocks!

The second craft was Marshmallow Pot O'Gold Cups and used up the remaining melting chocolate. I mixed the mini marshmallows into the chocolate then added some to each of the six foil cups. Top with the golden sprinkles, and you've got tiny pots o' gold!

The third craft is always cookies and the March batch was St. Patrick's Day Cookies. The cookies are pre-baked and sealed for freshness, but it's recommended that you complete your crafts within a week of receiving the box to maintain the best level of freshness.

The cookies are shaped like pots o' gold and different sized shamrocks with white, gold, and green sprinkles and icing. These were fun to decorate and even more fun to eat! The cookies are a delicious, buttery sugar cookie and are always a hit with my family.
Bottom Line: Gramma in a Box sends three creative candy and cookie snacks right to your door for an affordable price. The crafts are a great way to spend some time with your loved ones!

Check out this recent comment that Terry, the owner of Gramma in a Box, received, which shows how meaningful this box is:

“I want you to know how much I appreciate your Gramma in a box! Last month I was able to make the February goodies with my grandkids because I was visiting them. This month they were supposed to come visit me, but the Coronavirus made that impossible. So we did it via Skype today, and my 10 year old granddaughter completed all 3 recipes with very little help from me, but we shared lots of laughs! It was the highlight of my very secluded life (at the moment)! I don't know where you get all the tasty and pretty decorations! So thank you for supplying these kits, and giving me all the credit with the kiddos! We are all looking forward to next month!!”
