Q: I want to order this box. is there any way I can have a set of nesting dolls added to my order or will they be in one of the coming 3 boxes? Asked by Christal M., December 2020

The Russia Box answered...December 2020

Hi Christal,
Spasibo (thank you) for your question! If you order now, the box you will receive will contain a Matryoshka keepsake box (which is a larger Matryoshka souvenir that is not a nesting doll - you can see it on our store website under the "what's inside" tab). This item is limited and we are just about out, so please order right away to receive that souvenir. If you are specifically interested in a Matryoshka nesting doll, please email me when you order and we can add one to your box).
Thank you,
Juliana @The Russia Box

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).

My family and I love to travel but have never been to Russia, I figured this would be a good way start to learning about the culture. I love that it didn’t just come with candy, it came with savory food items and a little nesting doll toy (that kids will fight over if you have more than one so be prepared). I will say though, while some of the candy blew me away with flavor and uniqueness, a lot of them were very repetitive in flavor and style. All of that being said though; very fun experience for everyone that I will be doing again soon by popular demand!

This was a great box with a good mix of different candies and treats from Russia and other surrounding countries. I am addicted to the mushroom shaped cookies and was delighted to find them at a local grocery store. I absolutely loved getting a non food treat and have hung up the spoon in my kitchen for decoration. Definitely give this one a try!

Wonderful box! We asked to get in early on this shipment since our adopted Russian daughter was having her 16th birthday this month, and Juliana was so helpful and we got it in time! Vera was so happy to see all the wonderful candies and snacks!
At first I was a little disappointed in the size of the box, but we found out that it was packed FULL of goodies!
A great selection of items, and not the typical Russian candy. We especially liked the cranberry ПРЯ́НИК (Pryaniki Gingerbread cookies), and we think they will go even better with the Raspberry tea!
The Matryoshka doll was very cute and well made. Everything was fresh and very tasty. We will certainly be keeping our subscription. I can't wait until next month! Thanks!

Honestly, I was disappointed. I'm Russian, left Russia when I was 16, so maybe thats why, maybe my expectations are too high. I was not impressed, majority of candy were not the candy I'd get in Russia. Not your usual/traditional. For someone who would wanna try the candy(non Russian) it'd be ok but they'd probably think Russian candy sucks. "Korovka"was the only candy I liked. Everything else is already in English and doesnt taste that great, American candy is better. Waste of my money

Privet (Hi) Hakunamatata,
I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your Russia Box. As a new subscriber you may not know, but all of the snacks and souvenirs included in our boxes are actually made in Russia or in Eastern European countries. Sometimes, the snacks are labeled in English so that their names and ingredients are understandable in English speaking countries, sometimes not. It depends on the manufacturer. If they are not, English translations and information about the snacks can be found on our website under the "What's Inside" tab. The snacks vary every month, so over time you are likely to see a wide variety of Russian & Eastern European snacks, more traditional and more unusual and unique. ...

Not a Fan Personally
