March 2021 Gramma in a Box Review

The March Gramma in a Box had a St. Patrick's Day theme, of course! The cookie and candy craft box is always a fun way to share delicious sweets with my family.

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

Gramma in a Box was created by Terry, who wanted to be able to share sweet treats with her grandchildren who had moved out of state. The subscription allows everyone to send a box to their loved ones, or complete the crafts with them if you live close to each other!

The box usually comes with enough supplies to create 15 to 20 individual treats, but this month's info card announced that, starting in April, subscribers will now receive a dozen cookies in each box!

Gramma in a Box sends all of the ingredients you need to create three projects. The only items you'll need to provide are basics like a bowl and a spoon for mixing. Here are their pricing options:

  • Monthly: $22.50 per month
  • Three Months: $67.50 every three months
  • Six Months: $135 every six months
  • 12 Months: $270 every 12 months

You can also purchase a single box for $25 with no subscription. You can save 10 percent on subscription plans with the auto-debit option.

Shipping is included in all price options. Boxes ship on the first of the month and cancellations must be submitted by the 25th of the month to avoid the next month's charges.   

The first project was Shamrock Pretzel Pops. To assemble them, I melted the chocolate discs in the microwave and then dipped the "U" shaped end of each pretzel into the chocolate and connected three pretzels to form a shamrock shape. I added a little extra in the center to attach the stick and chocolate candy in the middle. These are so cute and such a creative idea!

The second project, Crispy Pot 'O Gold Cups, involved mixing the remaining melted chocolate with puffed cereal and scooping it into the paper cups. I then added gold and other colored sprinkles for decoration.

The third project is always cookies, and the March cookies were St. Patrick's Day themed. As stated earlier in the post, starting in April boxes will contain even more cookies - a full dozen! The cookies are pre-baked and shrink wrapped in plastic to maintain freshness, but be sure to do your crafts within a week of receiving the box for optimal freshness.

The cookies were shaped like pots of gold, shamrocks, and leprechaun hats with yellow, white, and green icing. There were several sprinkles of different shapes and colors, too.

Bottom Line: Gramma in a Box always has fun and creative cookie and candy crafts. The projects are simple enough for kids of all ages to share with adult loved ones and are a great way to bond and show someone you care!
