Global Delights, who kindly sent me this box to review, is an international food subscription box. Each month you will receive at least seven international food items from a wide variety of food types from a multitude of countries. Foods will range from cookies and candies to soups and entrees.
Global Delights ships via USPS Priority Mail and took the standard two days to arrive.
I couldn’t really tell what anything was from the first look, but that is what I like abut this box – that I’m not familiar with anything!
Global Delights doesn’t have a theme, however, they do have an information card which lists the products included, as well as, the country they are from. Here is what the August box included:
~Pastry Rings – Russia: I wasn’t sure what to expect from these, but they taste like those round ring bread things that are in Chex-Mix, except on a bigger scale. WB and I both liked them well enough, but I didn’t think they were anything I would need to get it I went overseas.
~Lychee – Japan: Lychee is a tropical fruit and these were yummy. They were like a cross between a fruit snack and like Dots candy.
~Guava Bars – Columbia: Hmm. I don’t know about these. They weren’t as bad as I expected, but they weren’t a Luna bar either. They are wrapped in leaves which I thought was neat and are like a giant square of gel like guava. I should have taken a picture out of the package. I think the consistency of it bothered me more than the taste.
~Frankish Cream of Spelt Soup – German: Cream of Spelt huh? I thought it looked like broccoli cheese soup ;). Does anyone speak German that could translate the front of the package? Because I want to know what else is in this.
~Brazil Nut Toffee – England: I so should have read the instructions on this first because I opened it and could not figure out how to break off a piece. The label clearly says you should “whack” it then unwrap it! Makes sense. Anyway, this was delicious and I loved it.
~Strawberry Wafers – Portugal: I love wafer cookies. I am a fan of all flavors and these strawberry ones were great. They are thinner than the ones we have here (at least the ones I have tried), but they are very very good.
~Marshmallow Cookies – Mexico: On one hand I can see the attraction to these cookies. They look fun and not too many cookies have marshmallows stuck on top. But I thought they were a bit (a lot) odd. The cookie part itself was good (it was soft which I wasn’t expecting) and the marshmallows were good (I swear they had like sugar or something on top), but together I just don’t know. WB was a fan!
I didn’t do a cost breakdown on the Global Delights box since it wasn’t easy to find any of the items. Plus if I could I didn’t know what to do about shipping since I know I can’t get some of these things locally. There were seven items in the box which would work out of $5 per item since the box is $36. That seems a tad on the high side, but we had a great time trying everything so you have to factor in the experience factor as well!
