Treats Box is a brand new international snack box based in the US. The August 2015 selection is fantastic and I’m already impressed by the snack sizes included. This box will send you treats from all over the world. You can receive anything from strange flavors of familiar treats to treats you’ve never heard of or seen before.
The Cost: Premium Box- $24.95/month, Standard Box-$12.95/month
What You Get: Either 4-5 or 8-10 fun treats and snacks from around the world.
Kasugai Fruit Gummy Assortment– This is a big package of individually wrapped sweets. The gummies are very tasty and come in Strawberry, Lychee and Mango. My favorite is the Strawberry.
Calbee Baked Shrimp Chips– It took a lot of willpower to force myself to try these but they ended up not being bad at all. They didn’t really taste like shrimp which was a good thing. 😀
Jagabee Butter Soy Crisps– These look just like french fries and taste… not bad but mainly like salty butter. They were strangely addicting.
Glico Giant Caplico Strawberry– This is like an ice cream cone with a mousse-like strawberry substance as the ice cream. Unfortunately, this melted and didn’t have it’s form anymore. It’s not my favorite texture to begin with but it tasted fine.
Uha Puccho in Cola– I really like cola-flavored Japanese candies. These were a little weird consistency-wise but I still ate them. I like Puccho.
Morinaga Milk Caramel– These are really good caramel flavored chewy candies. I like them a lot, too. This box had so many things I ended up loving in it!
Amanoya Himemaru Japanese Rice Crackers– I ended up loving these! They were so good. “Were” being the key word there. I’m glad it was such a big bag because I didn’t mind sharing. They have sort of a puffy, cheeto sort of texture I liked a lot.
Uegaki Kaki-no-tane– These are shiny little rice crackers. I love these things. They aren’t super easy to find and not all brands are created equal. These are perfect. I made the mistake of pouring this huge bag into a bowl and setting it out for the guys. I grabbed a handful for myself and it’s a good thing I did because they scarfed the ENTIRE bowl!! What was I thinking?! /sigh
Meiji Watapachi Melon Soda– Okay, so… I need more of this. It’s like a block of cotton candy with poprocks inside! How do I get more? I’m a sucker for sour candies and this was like all my favorite things in one fell swoop! I have to figure out how to find more of these. (I ended up buying more of these on candysan.com)
Glico Pocky Tsubu Tsubu Ichigo– I’m already a fan of Pocky (especially chocolate) and these are heart shaped sticks with pinky, strawberry goodness on them! This is a big box with 2 individual packages inside. One package is already eaten. Hey, it was my birthday! 😀
VERDICT: Treats Box has a truly excellent combination of both savory and sweet flavors in this box. I love that! This is the Explorer box and it had ten items in it and I think it’s absolutely worth the price paid for it. I can’t say that for all snack boxes either. But these were large bags of treats that will last quite awhile (or will if you don’t leave them out where a pack of guys can get to them). I’m very impressed with this box and I’m excited to see how future boxes turn out.
