Amazon Is Sending Out Boxes Filled With Assorted Sweets
By Cooking Panda
For those of you out there with a sweet tooth who are also in the habit of (frequently) treating yourself, you might be interested in the new, sugary offer that Amazon has in store.
The online retailer’s new program is called Prime Surprise Sweets, and basically offers its subscribers the option to press a button and then receive a big box of randomly assorted small-batch candy that is made by “artisans across the nation.”
Here’s how it works:
Step one is purchasing the Prime Surprise Sweets Dash Button, which will run you $18. Amazon recommends you call this button your “sweet spot” and hide it somewhere nearby.
Next, when you’re hit with a craving for something sugary and coma-inducing, you just push your Dash Button and the program is triggered to send you your $18 box of candy straight to your doorstep.
Finally, enjoy your treats — every box is filled with a surprise assortment of candy, so you never know what exactly you’re going to receive.
If you’re anything like us, the surprise element is intriguing but also problematic; what if you end up hating your box? Or what if you have a peanut allergy, and you receive straight-up peanut brittle and a chocolate that looks safe, but is secretly filled with a peanuty-nougat?
Luckily, Amazon answered this all on its FAQ page. If you’re not totally satisfied, they’ll give you a refund if you call their dedicated Customer Service team. Additionally, some products may contain milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soy and/or gluten, and all nutritional facts for each product can be found on an insert in your box.
For the time-being, signing up to be a part of Prime Surprise Sweets actually requires an invite, although if you request to become a member to Amazon directly, chances are they’ll grant your offer within a month.
What do you think of Amazon’s new surprise sweet package? Will you be purchasing your very own sweet-spot Dash Button any time soon? Or would you rather stick with your tried-and-true candy favorites?
