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!

This has been an excellent box for Russian major son (and us by extension as he is good about sharing). The treats are not all just dime candy (though there are a couple of those in every box and they are great), but also actual desserts and great snacks. The small trinkets that are in the boxes are not super fancy but are very interesting and are not junk.

We have also figured out that the rest of the world is actually better at candy and snacks than the US, which is sad (Step up your game, America. We are being beaten in snacks by literally the entire planet).

This box is also an EXCELLENT value compared to other crates. We are allowing our subscription to auto-renew for the foreseeable future.

I recorded a video trying this box with my friend and brother. The two enjoyed it, but I had my own issues with the box. It wasn't very similar to the ones I've seen of the previous boxes, so I was disappointed. It was shipped pretty fast compared to other crate's I've tried. It had a few small but good snacks in it. It had a soup in it that wasn't my favorite, but the other two loved it for some reason. There was a small handpainted item that resembled a spoon, which everyone fought over. I'm not sure if it's worth the price, considering I could have bought a ton of snacks here in America. That said, it is worth experiencing, and its kind of like opening a present. Children sometimes expect more in the present, so they are disappointed, even if the present is the awesomest thing in the world.

Zdravstvuite (Hello) Hannah,

Thank you for your feedback! I'm sorry to hear that The Russia Box was not a good fit for you. We strive to make a unique and delicious box for our subscribers to enjoy each month. The box this month contained 2 lbs of snacks and treats, 8+ different item types, including an extra large item, 4 large items, 1-3 medium size items and 10-20 small items. In addition, The Russia Box contained an authentic, imported, Soviet era Azerbaijani, Russian or Ukrainian cultural item. We love our subscribers and strive to provide excellent customer service! I have reached out to you via email regarding your order. Thank you for giving The Russia Box a try!

The Best Thing Ever!

I loved this box! Great selection, especially if you have an Easter European background. It was exactly what I wanted and what I was expecting in terms of the products! My significant other loved it too. It was sent and arrived super quick, even though I had ordered it after the cut-off period for the month according to the description- I was so pleasantly surprised to get it earlier! I had also originally forgotten to enter the discount code and emailed the owner- she quickly responded and reimbursed me. Thank you! Amazing, really looking forward to the next box!

I purchased this for my husband who loves all things Russia. Each month it's a huge deal when we get the new box. The little gifts are always fun and we love trying all the treats. Some we wish were sold in the states and some we wish we didn't taste, but it's always an adventure to see what's in the box. My husband just asked me to renew his subscription for Christmas. He likes it that much :)

My Russian husband enjoyed this box! It was a great way to bring Russia to him since we can't go there now. The Petrushka chocolate covered wafer cookie, sushki-shaped pretzels, and chocolate roll were all hits, but everything was good. The vintage Soviet Petrushka pin was also a nice surprise! Juliana was also very responsive to our questions; great customer service! I will come back for sure.

I spent a couple summers in Russia to study and I love the culture so much. I really miss it! This box brought back memories and made me feel such joy! Great curation, truly something for everyone. The “lifestyle” addition was too adorable each month.
