Torres Caviar Potato Chips (1.41 oz.)- $2.15
I’m so excited to see Torres Potato Chips in this box! I received a full-sized bag of Torres Black Truffle Potato Chips in my first ever Yummy Bazaar Full Experience box, and I still have dreams about them. I don’t like the caviar flavor quite as much as the black truffle, but they’re still yummy (albeit a little fishy).
Japanese Bread with Hokkaido Cream by D-Plus (2.8 oz.)- $1.65
Based on the name of this snack, I expected this bread to have a creamy filling, but I think it’s just made using Hokkaido Cream. It was soft and a little gummy.
Russian Borscht Seasoning by Magya Vostoka- $1.45
This item isn’t currently for sale on the Yummy Bazaar site, so I’ve used the price listed on the info sheet. Yummy Bazaar often sends out spices and seasoning packets, and I think it’s great that they send out items that can be incorporated into meals. I’ve made borscht a few times myself before, and I’m excited to try making it with this seasoning packet.
Dark Chocolate Coconut by Next Nature- $1.95
I’ve received a few different products from Next Nature recently, and I’ve been really impressed! I’ve tried the chocolate covered cherries and chocolate covered espresso beans, but I think this one might be my favorite.
Palais des Thes Tea Bags (2 bags)- $.52
Tea isn’t always the most exciting item to find in a subscription box, but I’ll certainly put it to good use. I drink tea pretty regularly, and I like to keep a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge during the summertime.
Russian Chocolate by Alenka- $.50
This is another item that’s not yet listed on the Yummy Bazaar site. The chocolates are crunchy and delicious!
Boongabband Cake by Orion (8 oz.)- $.99
The last item in this box is Boongabband Cake, a Korean fish-shaped pastry. I really enjoyed this! The cake was soft and filled with chocolate.
Verdict: I think this is a great box from Yummy Bazaar’s Destination Food Club! I enjoyed every single item this month, and I had a great time discovering new treats from around the world! In terms of value, the retail value of the items comes in at $9.21. That just about breaks even with the cost of the box, so I’m pleased.
