From Thai with Love Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014
From Thai With Love is a new subscription that sends you snacks and treats straight from Thailand!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: From Thai With Love
The Cost: $14/month + free shipping
The Products: 3-5 Thai treats or snacks, along with some small items they throw in.
Ships to: Everywhere in the world!
Big Sheet Seaweed Chilli by Tae Kae Noi – value: $.55
Heartbeat Mango Drops
Apparently, fried and processed seaweed is a really big Thai treat (much like potato chips are here in the West), so it makes sense for them to include some in this subscription! (They also wrote a short article about this item and brand here!)
Also, these Mango Drops are mango hard candies – mango isn’t my favorite, so these will get passed along to a friend!
Chocolate Banana Pocky – .88 oz, value: $.89
Herbal Infusion Lychee Slimming Tea – 1 tea bag, value: $.50
Gummy Berry Cola
Pocky is a very popular Asian treat (even here in America) and has been one of my personal favorites for years! This Chocolate Banana flavor is new to me, though. These were definitely eaten shortly after the photos were taken!
Lychee tea is definitely something I want to try but this tea is also a laxative, so I don’t think I’ll use this!
SunSnack BBQ Sunflower Seeds – .53 oz, value: $1.38
SourBerry Gummy Drops
These sunflower seeds were much spicier than I expected! They were good, but definitely have more of a kick than you’d think.
Verdict: Overall, I liked this box from From Thai With Love. I wish there had been a sheet included in the package to help explain what things were (or at least list them), but I really liked the variety of snacks they sent. I was definitely introduced to new things and even got to try a new flavor of an old favorite!
Also, I find that – for boxes like this one – cost breakdowns are both rather hard to do and maybe not quite as relevant (to me, at least). When it comes to boxes like this, I find that you pay for the experience and exposure to new, cultural snacks more than for a good bargain like your goal may be for other boxes.
