Bocandy is an international candy subscription. This is the January 2015 box. It actually comes in a mailing bag though. Or at least mine did. They are running a great deal where you can get your first month free.
What You Get: Six or more candies from anywhere around the world.
Haribo Gold-Bears– I love gummy bears so these are already gone. I’m slightly ashamed of that. Except they were just as delicious as the last time I ate them.
Canel’s Chewing Gum– I remember these from when I was a little kid. My grandma always had these around. These are the kinds of little gums that only have flavor for a short period of time. But eating the purple ones brought back memories. They’re Violet flavored.
Meiji Poifull Jelly Beans– These are raspberry, apple, lemon and grape flavored jelly beans. They are very, very sweet. They do have a lot of flavor, though.
Hello Kitty Biscuits with Chocolate Cream– We are having some friends over tomorrow and I’m going to give this to the little girl coming. Cute packaging and fun to eat.
Cloetta Kex Choklad– Wafer cookies dipped in chocolate. Not super awesome but fun to try something from Sweden.
Ricolino Bubu Lubu– This is marshmallow and strawberry jelly covered in dark chocolate. This wasn’t very tasty either but it is a certain size and shape that might make someone worried if they saw it on the ground in a corner…
VERDICT: This Bocandy box had a fun mix of strange treats. I like the generous handful of the smalled Canel’s gums. My favorite thing was the Haribo gummy bears but I liked the Hello Kitty snack addition and taste testing everything else. For me, I think I’m not adventurous enough to justify the $15 expense of this package but it would be fun to send to a far away nephew or something like that.
