The coconut flavor was definitely strong with these dragees, so if coconut isn’t your thing, these probably won’t be either. The coconut filling was covered with smooth chocolate, so the best comparison taste wise is probably an Almond Joy.
This is two cake like cookies with a honey filling sandwiched between, and then covered in chocolate. I would compare this to the quality of Little Debbie Cakes in the States, as that’s what it is most similar to. It’s much like a moon pie, just substitute the marshmallow filling for something similar to honey frosting. I liked it!
I liked these a lot! The cookie on either side is not too sweet, which is a nice foil for the inside, sweet cream filling.
Fujiya Fruit Lollipops
The little ones I gave these lollipops to enjoyed them! I am not a sucker person, so I didn’t waste them on myself. It looks like I received honeydew and grape flavors; I’ve never seen honeydew lollipops before!
Soletti Maxi Sticks
These are good, basic pretzel sticks. There’s not much to be said about pretzels – they’re nice and salty as they should be, with a good crunch!
OLZA Prince Polo Hazelnut XXL Milk Chocolate Bar
This was really good. It is quite similar to a hazelnut KitKat in texture, and the flavor was great. This is a pretty big candy bar – I couldn’t eat all of it at once.
Verdict: This is a really fun, international snack box, for a reasonable price. I do wish that there was more of a focus on telling you what you’re receiving. Last month, I received an email from the company with a list of items I could receive (some of which I didn’t receive, and I received others that weren’t on the list), and there was a little note inside with a webpage to go to, where all of the items that were emailed to me could be found. This month, I didn’t receive an email (I even checked my spam), and there was no note inside.
Aside from that small complaint, I have enjoyed my BoCandy boxes, and I think they’re a nice, cheaper alternative to MunchPak or Treats!
As far as value goes, this one needs to be determined on a case-by-case basis, for you personally. Since the treats are from all over, and aren’t necessarily accessible in the States, the values aren’t readily available. I think if you would pay $2.50 per item (I’m counting the suckers as 1 item here), this box might be for you!
