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).
Love this mix of foodie items! Perfect mix of different kinds of items for both sweet and savory lovers!
I highly recommend this box! It was packed with Russian snacks and candies that I haven’t seen anywhere else! Everything was tasty and my kid had fun trying everything, as well.
The box arrived right on time and was densely packed with goodies- mostly candy, but we enjoyed them!
I ordered this for my brother for Xmas and he loved it. My only suggestion is that there should be an option to NOT have an email sent to the recipient telling them what it is beforehand.
My grandma Was overjoyed with this box as a 3 month gift and she is not one who is easy to please
Purchased this for my 15 year old. He is enjoying treats from another country.
Really a great box! I was hesitant to purchase, but the variety was great--my nephew will love it! The little trinket addition was great as well. Kudos!
Absolutely love the box! Filled to the brim with treats in such a cute/stylish box!
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!
I’ve always wanted to visit Russia since I was in first grade!! I’m 25 now and I’m learning Russian and Romanian. The person who makes this box makes me so happy I love it so much thank u for making me happy!!! Your box turkey saved my life.
I will say this box is packed FULL and is Definitely worth it's value for what you get! The items are fun, new and unique to us! The only reason I did take a star away is that it's a lot of sweets and to t much hard candy for my preference. I don't eat that much candy in a year, let alone in one month. This would make a wonderful, unique gift. I'm just not sure if this is a box that I would consume on a monthly basis with mostly sweets in it. I'm not a big sweet fan.. but if you like sweet snacks, this is a great box! It's definitely packed full and worth every penny as far as I can tell.
I’ve tried to contact seller through the email that they had provided but got a message back saying it didnt exist and when I tried to look up the items and origin of them with the website on the little card in the box it shows the photo I uploaded which is even stranger. The box was okay however my Russian family said it wasn’t truly Russian items so at the price it was disappointing.
