From Thai with Love Subscription Box Review - Sept 2014 Package

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).

From Thai with Love Subscription Box Review - Sept 2014 Items

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!

From Thai with Love Subscription Box Review - Sept 2014 Jumbo

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!

From Thai with Love Subscription Box Review - Sept 2014 Fitne

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!

From Thai with Love Subscription Box Review - Sept 2014 Sun Snack

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.

  1. The tea can be used as bath sachet or you could use it has a facial steam. This is what I do with questionable tea from subscription boxes, as long as there isn’t eucalyptus or ginger(which can irritate skin)you should be good to go.
    P.S. Thanks for subscribing to the “odd ball” boxes. I appreciate living vicariously, as I have too many food allergies to subscribe myself.

  2. Aww, my hubby would probably enjoy this and there is no place we would could buy this sort of thing locally!

    I won’t sign up though because we need to be able to see ingredients lists and apparently they don’t include a card explaining that in English. :/

  3. Interesting idea, but I’m not convinced about the value. Maybe it’s the absence of finishing touches like packaging and info cards that is turning me off, but it just doesn’t feel very polished. I don’t want to come off as snotty either, but handwritten labels just don’t say “quality control” to me. Since this is food related I tend to be more critical, but I guess I could see a niche market for this.

  4. My exchange daughter sent us a package from Thailand when she got home and include Pad Thai mixes for my daughter. Well she guessed at how to make them because everything was in Thai and she included a bag of dried fruits that my daughter brought to school and got the whole biology class to eat mystery fruits. I’ll post a link to this page and see what she says about these treats!

  5. Oh come on Haley, drink the laxative tea! Take one for the team. Lol. =D
