Before we delve into the details, I just want to say… this is an amazing subscription. The variety is fantastic, the packaging is fantastic, and the individual information cards are fantastic. One of my favorite things to do is to try out new food, especially from different places/cultures/countries. And of course, I love candy. So this is a subscription that I immediately had to sign up for after seeing what the first box included.

Just FYI, your first box, no matter when you start, will always be this box – Around the World in 30 Sweets, so if you like what you see here, you’re in luck! You can go to their website and sign up and get everything you see here. When I signed up, I chose the “one-time gift” option, but because this was so good, I had to sign up for their monthly subscription. This totally blows Candy Club of the Month out of the water, in my opinion.

When I signed up for their monthly subscription, I could have started again with this box… and let me tell you, I seriously considered it because I ended up really enjoying a lot of the candy they included. 😄 But ultimately, I chose the second option, which lets you start with the next box.

Also… I ate some of the candy before I took these photos so when the info card says “x pieces assorted”, they didn’t forget anything… it was just that I couldn’t help myself. :p

Taiwan – Hi-Chew: I love these, haha. The green apple ones are the best.

Austria – Pez

Netherlands – van Melle Advocaat

Norway – Licorice Caramels

Ukraine – Roshen Jelly Sweets: THESE ARE SO GOOD. I had to stop myself from finishing the entire packet so that I could actually have something to photograph. 😄

Russia – Mishka Kosolapy

Indonesia – Milkita (milk shake candy)

Malaysia – Okio Gummies: These were also AMAZING. Seriously, so much flavor and so perfect.

Poland – Krowki Cream Fudge

South Korea – Fruit Hard Candies from Daylight Confectionery Company

Singapore – Meiji Hello Panda: These are actually mini panda cookies filled with cookies so less like candy and more like dessert, but I’ve had these before and they’re not bad at all.

Turkey – Haribo: I was confused as to why Haribo was being counted as Turkey’s candy, but the info card says it’s because Turkey is the country where Haribo is manufactured. 😄

France – Maison Pecou Jordan Almonds: Kind of disappointed with this because there was so much more potential for a French candy, but oh well.

England – Walkers Nonsuch English Creamy Toffees

Switzerland – Milka Milkinis: I love Milka! Their chocolate is so smooth and delicious.

Japan – Green Tea Kit Kats: These used to be such a commodity and I’ve actually gone to Japan to purchase them before, but now I can easily buy them at several local stores so I’m kind of over them. 😄 But make no mistake, these are great and a must-try!

Thailand – Kopiko

Ireland – Jelly Bean Factory Jelly Beans

Hong Kong – Lucky Candy: I’ve definitely had these before and I love them. 😄 The hard crunchy outside is a great contrast to the softer taffy inside. All strawberry-flavored, of course!

China – White Rabbit: I’m sure most people have heard, seen, or tried this before! It’s really not the best candy in my opinion, but the rice paper is the best part.

Morocco – Fresch Chewy Dragees

Argentina – Arcor Fruit Taffies

USA – Bit O Honey: LOL I have never had these before, but I guess I can try them now.

DSC_0725EVERYTHING!

Overall enjoyment:This has just become my favorite food-related subscription box, beating out Love With Food. It is so unique and so thoughtfully curated and SO DELICIOUS that I just had to give it first place. I highly, highly, highly recommend this to anyone who loves sweets and isn’t afraid of trying new things. This is an experience that would be hard to replicate because you’d have to hunt down all the different kind of candies they included in here. I can’t wait for my next box… which sadly, does not ship out until July 1st, so I guess I need to try to make all of this last until then. 😄

  1. I remember getting Sixlets during trick-or-treating when I was really young, so when I saw them at a Dollar Tree in SD one day, I was like, “ooh!” and then very disappointed when I ate them….lol.

    I’ve never even heard of the American one.

    I would’ve preferred candy originating from the country rather than candy simply produced in the country. Those Japanese candies coming in Taiwanese and Singaporean packets…

    BTW, you skipped Belgium. 😛

    1. LOL OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE I FORGOT BELGIUM. 😄 (hehehe thank you for the heads up).

      Yeah, Sixlets aren’t very tasty. 😦 I was disappointed – some of them tasted like whoppers and were gross. But yes, I totally agree – I definitely would have preferred candy that originated from the country too.

      PS – you should do reviews on all of the awesome Japanese foods/snacks you’ve been enjoying. :p
