Bocandy is a monthly subscription box that sends you a selection of international candies at an affordable price.
Each regular box will include 6 to 9 items (there’s also a “half box” that contains 3 or 4). Brands featured in past boxes have included Pocky, Dip Dab, Cadbury, Haribo, Kinder, Lucas, and more. Along with the treats, they also include a detailed product sheet with information about all of the items in the box.
Subscriptions are $15/month for the full size box (or less with multi-month commitments), and $8.50 for the half size (also less with multi-month plans).
Let’s see what’s in the August 2015 (full size) Bocandy box!
Everything was shipped in a small white box with a big Bocandy logo sticker.
The info sheet, while not much to look at design-wise, is packed with helpful… info. It includes a full list of the products included in the box, as well as descriptions and retail prices for each one.
Zotz Italy ($1) – These watermelon-flavored hard candies from Italy have a sweet outer “shell” with sour, fizzy innards. (Yep. Innards.)
Rountrees Fruit Gums Britain ($3.50) – Round fruit-flavored gummy candies that have the consistency of a jujube (as opposed to a less chewy gummy bear).
ETI Crax Turkey ($3) – Pizza-flavored snack sticks with “extra herbs”! According to the info sheet, the company that makes these also runs a free Turkish high school as well as an archaeological museum. Neat!
Choward’s Guava USA ($2.50) – I never would have guessed these guava-flavored hard candies were from the US. I was also surprised to see that they’re vegan-friendly. Awesome!
Bulgarian Chocolate Bar Bulgaria ($3.50) – Okay, obviously I couldn’t type the actual name of this bar (I even tried to Google it with no luck), so generic chocolate bar it is. It does look delicious though! It has what looks to be wafers sandwiched between layers of chocolate and peanut butter cream, topped with peanuts and coated in chocolate.
Meisan Soda Candy Japan ($1) – The info card describes this as tasting like dropping a bouillon cube into a can of Coke. Um… No. Just no. This one can stay over there in Japan. 😉
Peanut Butter Damy Mexico ($0.67) – Peanut butter flavored candies that are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Milkita Milkshake Candy Indonesia ($0.67) – Melon-flavored “milkshake” candies from Indonesia.
Anise Hard Candy Holland ($0.67) – I tend to only like anise in small doses (okay, mainly in Jingles cookies), since it’s so potent. Plus, these totally remind me of something an old lady would have at the bottom of her purse. 😉
Bocandy is definitely a fun, affordable way to discover new international candies and snacks each month. I love the variety of treats and the detailed info sheet they include.
