Instant Thai Tea Mix – from Thailand – 12.3 oz, value: $8?
Schwinder Orange Cake – from Germany – 14 oz
I’ve never tried Thai tea, so I don’t know how I’ll like this mix. It’s definitely worth a try.
I just have to say that this is a really big cake! It seems kind of like a sponge cake you could pick up at the store. The chocolate coating is better than usual, though.
Gonsalves Coconut Bon Bons – 12 oz
Aviateur 6 Almond Fingers – 9.25 oz, value: $3.46
These almond fingers are really good! They taste like regular lady fingers, just nutty. I’ll have to look up more ways to eat them or things to eat them with.
Inca’s Food Fried Hite Hominy Corn – from Peru – 4 oz
Roasted Rice Candy – from Korea
This Fried Hominy Corn tastes similar to corn nuts. They aren’t my favorite, but I think my mom will like them.
Nestle Violet Crumble – from Australia – 1.76 oz, value: $3.14
Chocofreta – from Greece – 1.34 oz, value: $.60
Les Anis De Flavigny Rose Mints – from France – 1.75 oz, value: $5?
Violet Crumble is a honeycomb bar covered in chocolate. It’s very cumbly and melts in your mouth.
This Chocofreta is my favorite discovery in the box! It’s similar to wafer cookies you’re probably familiar with, but the chocolate in this is so smooth and flavorful. This got eaten immediately!
I think I’ve seen these rose mints in another subscription box before, but I don’t remember which. I’ve never tried rose flavored mints before, but I guess it’s time to try them out!
Verdict: I definitely think this was an interesting box from Global Delights. I like the variety of items a lot, and it got me to try some things I would never have found otherwise. Not everything is for me, but I also found some new things I love. It’s hard to get an exact value due to the nature of the box, but I think the amount of products and difficulty to find everything adds up to at least the value of the box.
