A few weeks ago I received a box full of treats from countries all over the world thanks to Bocandy.
Bocandy is a subscription box to international candy. They don’t just throw random candies in the box, they handpick the best stuff to send out. Boxes start at $15 a month
If you’re in the US, an American military base, Puerto Rico, or any of the other territories, you’ll get free shipping. Everyone else is going to pay a subsidized rate. International shipments may take longer to arrive, and the contents of the box may differ from that of the domestic versions due to government restrictions.
Bocandy was an idea that came about when friends tried buying international candy and found out it was not only hard to find, but also really expensive. They started buying it in bulk, and shipping it to their home base in Detroit. From there they add it to boxes and ship out to subscribers!
International Candy Subscription Box – $15/month
6-9 candies each month from around the world. Bocandy International Candies are selected from Asia, Europe, Europe, and Australia, each month is a surprise!
Asian Candy Subscription Box – $20/month
6-9 Candies each month from Japan and Korea. Will include snacks from Japan, South Korea, and other Asian countries. Great for the summer months!
Bocandy Premium – $40/month
A mixture of 20+ international and domestic snacks. These treats are mostly indie brands and include a beverage! Great for families! Please note that Premium Boxes do not include free shipping.
So what was in my box? Deliciousness!
I tried the Korsarz Coconut Dragrees (Poland) first.
These are small chocolate covered coconut flavored balls that taste amazing.
Next I tried the Eugenia Junior Cu Lapte Si Miere (Romania).
Based on my googling, these are cookies with milk and honey. This marks the first time Bocandy has used candy from Romania! These are similar to an oreo, but the cookie part is softer and the cream is sweeter due to the honey. These are REALLY good!
Salty Sticks (Bulgaria)
These are essentially pretzel sticks, although I did find them to be a little less salty than the ones here in America. The taste was slightly different from what I was used to, but not bad.
OLZA Prince Polo Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Confection
This is seriously my new favorite candy bar! First of all, this XXL bar is HUGE! There are four layers of crispy wafers layered with hazelnut milk chocolate, and then the entire thing is covered in milk chocolate. I guess the texture similar to a kit-kat bar, but the taste is MUCH better! Plus I’m a sucker for anything hazelnut!
Medovina Honey Linzer (Bulgaria)
This product is rich milk chocolate covering a moist honey cake. It has a sweet taste – similar to a honey glazed doughnut. I also believe there might have been some cinnamon in it.
My box also contained Hand Suckers (Japan) but I have not tried them yet.
