I am not sure if I’ve mentioned, but I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so when Candy Packs came to me about their candy subscription box and offered me a box to review, I was so happy to say yes. What I liked about Candy Packs was that they find unique candies from across the globe for you to discover.
The Cost: $24.95 a month, including shipping for 1lb (larger sizes available)
The Products: Each month, Candy Packs will send you three different candies from around the world for you to try.
I like that the information card gives you detailed information about each candy including where they found it and what it tastes like.
I always thought I could stand some pretty sour things – until I tried this. I lasted maybe 10 seconds before I had to spit it out. No one in my family was able to handle the sour. I even have a cute video of my daughter taking a very tentative taste and her surprised reaction. In the end, we had to wash off the sour crystals for us to enjoy the candy inside. This makes a great gift for someone who really wants something unique or wants to see if they can handle what I consider the most sour candy I’ve ever come across.
These creamy caramels were delectable. Soft, creamy and full of flavor. I would have liked to have a box with just these! I liked that all the different flavors were included, but would have liked more of each flavor to try.
The outer shell of this candy reminds me of buttered rum for some reason. The inside cream is so delicious. It truly does taste like eggnog. It’s not something I would go out and buy, but I would definitely take a piece if I were ever offered more!
Thoughts: I thought this was such a fund discovery box. I love learning about the different candies from each country and I think candy is a really great way to learn a bit more about the everyday culture and taste preferences of each country. I definitely feel as though these candies represent what each country is about from my own experiences being in each country. I really cannot wait to see what other countries they will include next!
