Update after subscribing for 4 months. This is such a cool subscription box and a lot of fun to receive. Would be an amazing gift for anyone interested in Eastern Europe. I feel like I got a lot of good things to try and I ended up liking most of it. I like that there's a good variety of flavors and countries. I only wish that 1) it had more savory items and 2) that it included a booklet or paper list of what is in my box with info about the snack and maybe the country of origin. They do have descriptions, but you need to go to the website and try to match up the pictures with the items you got. I love the souvenirs! I did keep getting the same handfuls of small candies (I do like them - but still).
I was very surprised with the quality of the products inside, even though I knew it was popular. Not many subscription boxes have this kind of value. And it's not just the prices. It's definitely a feel-good subscription and I can see why it's so highly rated!
I chose the Swan Crate, which is the more elegant style rather than cute. I loved everything that came in my first box. :) I got a really good variety of things, from bookmarks to notebooks to pretty packing tape. Very lovely to receive such a lovely curated collection. I will be keeping this subscription for a while.
