It’s no secret that I enjoy candy. Whether it’s snacking on YumEarth sour beans or dipping into my secret chocolate stash, a sweet treat is often a nice rewards after a day at the computer. So it may come as no surprise, that when we got the opportunity to review Bocandy – a new subscription box that delivers candy from around the world every month – the answer was “Yes.”
If you’re not familiar with subscription boxes, here’s a quick run down. When you subscribe to a subscription box, every month (or sometimes every week or every quarter) you’ll receive a surprise box of products. What’s in your box will depend on the type of subscription box you choose – whether it’s clothes, beauty items, or in this case – CANDY!
A few days prior to the delivery, we received an email from Bocandy with our tracking number and a little bit of information about all of the candies included in this month’s candy delivery. We don’t usually find out about what’s in a subscription box until it arrives, but in this case, knowing what was coming made it that much more exciting to finally receive our Bocandy subscription delivery.
Our first Bocandy delivery arrived through USPS in a red bubble mailer.
Opening the mailer and pouring candy out of it was just as fun as it sounds.
Next, it was time to survey the candy that was in this month’s Bocandy subscription box.
Do you see those tiny foil-wrapped, pink and yellow candies? I was SO excited to see these. I’d tried these Chipurnoi Glitterati candies in my younger years during a trip to Italy and loved them so much, that I took handfuls of them as I was leaving the restaurants I had dined in. I didn’t think I’d ever see or eat these fruit candies again once my stockpile had been depleted.
I know many of you might recognize the familiar gold packaging of the Haribo Gold Bears, but what you might not know is these are from Germany! These are definitely my favorite gummy bears, so this candy was another hit for us.
I wasn’t familiar with most of the other candies but I am looking forward to trying them all – especially the Fazer Mints from Finland and the ROM bar from Romania. Also included in this month’s Bocandy were:
- Walker’s Toffee from England
- De La Rosa Marzipan Peanut from Mexico
- Ptichye Moloko from Russia
- Coconut London Roll from Malaysia
I loved the variety and quantity of candy that arrived from Bocandy and I can wait to discover new candies from around the world in the upcoming months. Bocandy subscriptions start at just $13 a month, with free shipping. With 8 months subscriptions, the price drops to $11 a month (an $88 one-time charge.) Bocandy also offers 4 month subscriptions for $48 ($12 a month.)
Do you want to give the Bocandy candy subscription box a try? How about try it for free? For a limited time, you can get a free Bocandy delivery – just pay $3.49 shipping.
