Contents of the boxes are subject to change, dependent on product availability at the time. The contents of each cycle of box may vary dependent on product supply. The items in the box will be in rotation and we reserve the right to change the contents at any time.
The contents of The Handmade Treat Company box will offer a variety of products and it is your responsibility to decide whether or not it is suitable for your dietary needs. The box is not suitable for vegans, as it will contain a combination of products, as well as those that contain honey. Many of our products do contain nuts and so would not be suitable for those suffering from nut allergies.
Please note that some products are manufactured in a facility that produces food containing gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts and soya. It is the customer’s responsibility to consult the labels of the individual items for allergy information. Please consult product manufacturers for further information regarding factory/production conditions. We are not liable for any reactions caused from consuming any of the contents of the box.
