One of the treats was large and took alot of room inside the box, otherwise would have liked more of a variety. Wish I had recieved the sour cream and greens instead of the crab flavored Flint.
Zdrastvuite (Hello) Wesley,
Thank you for your feedback. We strive to bring a wide variety of delicious snacks and lifestyle items to our subscribers every month in every box. Sometimes we feature a larger item due to numerous requests for drinkable and salty snacks (since Russian snacks tend to be on the sweet side). This month we featured a bottle of Sea Buckthorn drink that is very popular in Russia and challenging to find in the US. But rest assured, each month the items introduced in the box will vary in size and flavor to give you the opportunity to experience many gastronomic adventures!

Pros: It’s interesting to try new candies. These candies and chocolate are rare to find in my city. My favorite item in this box is the tea. The tea has 20 tea bags, so it’s enough for me to drink for a while. I also like the russian doll, it’s a bit small, but still looks cute!
Cons: the cherry alcohol candies leaked everywhere, and the liquid is sticky. so I have to wipe everything in my box.
Zdravstvuite (Hello) Rita,
Thank you for your feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed trying new candies. This month's box contained some amazing, hard-to-find items including a box of tea that a lot of our customers have been asking me to include, since tea is a large part of the Russian tradition. The other rare (and customer requested) item in the box was the hand-painted Matryoshka doll that is actually made of up of 3 separate dolls that fit perfectly within each other in the traditional Russian folk manner. Due to the extensive labor that goes into hand-painting the unique Matryoshka dolls, this is the first time we were able to include a multi-tier doll, and we are very excited about it! I'm sorry...
I had high expectations. It was a fun experience to try new snacks that I can’t get here in the states and it’s worth checking out.
Zdravstvuite (Hello) Jennifer,
Thank you for your great feedback! We strive to make a unique and delicious box for our subscribers to enjoy each month. We're glad that you had fun experiencing new snacks and flavors from Eastern Europe!
