Treats ships their boxes wrapped in kraft paper which is fun to open! Inside, the snacks are wrapped with tissue paper with a sticker holding it closed, a post card from the location the treats are from, and an information card about the snacks. They also have quite a bit of information on their website if you want to explore there!

This month, the snacks are from Colombia. They always include a postcard that tells a little about the country and the snacks they chose. 

El Golpe Original by Yupi

These are really interesting. There are three different chip textures in this bag and the flavor is bacon (so I did not try these). There are wheat and plantain chips included in the bag – I wish they weren’t bacon, I love plantain chips!

Rosquilias De Quesito by La Nina 

These are large cheese ring chip type things, that are made with real cheese. The texture is quite interesting and I’m not sure I’m a fan of these. They are salty and cheesy – I just don’t think I like the texture!


Cocosette by Nestle

Here’s another coconut candy! These are chocolate coconut wafers and they were originally introduced in Venezuela in the 50s. Coconut lovers will enjoy these for sure. They’re wafers filled with chocolate and coconut, there’s no chocolate coating on the outside, so the coconut flavor really shines here.  

Jet Wafer by National Chocolate Company 

These are chocolate covered vanilla wafers that taste similar to those vanilla wafer cookies we have here, just covered in chocolate. I really enjoyed these, they tasted almost like they had a hint of coffee, and the chocolate was really good. 

Beso de Negra by Nestle 

These are chocolate covered marshmallow treats. One thing I have learned in my reviews of Treats, is that almost every single country has some sort of a chocolate covered marshmallow treat. It’s like a universal requirement of junk food or something! I had a taste tester try these and they liked them! Treats says that these are often used as a symbol of love or friendship in Colombia. 


Tostiarepa by Yupi

These are tortilla chips flavored with cheese and butter. That sounds amazing, right? In reality, they are very good, but I don’t taste the cheese or the butter – to me they’re just salty tortilla chips!

Achiras Del Huila by Achiras Del Huila

These are gluten free crackers made from achira flour. I’ve never heard of achira before, so I had to do a little research – achira is a root vegetable native to South America. The crackers taste a little like cheese and aren’t super salty. I think these would be really great with some sort of dip!


Supercoco by Turron

These are one of Colombia’s most famous candies. They are coconut caramel candies. I received a ton of these, as you can see! I did not enjoy these – they stuck to my teeth and were really difficult to eat.  

Bocadillo Veleno by Guyabas

The little foil wrapped square is guava paste wrapped with leaves of bijao. There’s a picture of it opened below!


I really enjoyed this, until I saw a teeny little bug crawling around inside the bag…needless to say I tossed the rest of it. I have no idea if it was a hitchhiker from Treats or it got in at my house – just check yours before you eat it! 


Morenitas by Nestle 

These are chocolate covered cookies, and Treats says that they are one of the most popular chocolate snacks in Colombia. I really enjoyed these and would compare them to chocolate covered graham crackers here in the States.

Fruit Chews by Frunas

These are very similar to Now and Laters! They come in four flavors: strawberry, cherry, orange, and lemon. They were a little hard to chew, but the flavor was great!

Verdict: As with all Treats boxes, the vast majority of these treats are not available widely in the United States, so I don’t give a value judgement for the box. I do think that this box is worth the money if you are interested in trying new things from around the world. I really enjoyed the treats this month and always enjoy the variety sent!

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. Tossed our foil surprise too. There was bugs in ours inside as I opened it from the leaf…..I jumped and shoved it back in the bag and tossed…..I wasn’t sure either if they where imported, but pretty sure they where. I canceled after that. I think it’s a great box to try different snacks and food, and love how they stick to one country or area,however we continually got busted up, melted, damaged items and now bugs was the last. Sad for us because it was so interesting and the curiosity bell rings when you know it’s been shipped and you can’t wait to see what’s in it.

    • Hi Christina, this is Roger with Treats! I’m so sorry to hear you found bugs in your Bocadillo, we’re very disturbed to hear that being the case! Would you mind sending me an email at I’d like to send you a partial refund because it sounds like your family was not able to enjoy the Bocadillo. Also, sorry to hear about some of the past items arriving in damaged or melted condition. That is unfortunately a risk when it comes to shipping items in a box, and we will take your feedback and try to protect the items better in the box before it is picked up to be shipped.

  2. This sounds like fun, and a nice assortment of sweet and salty snacks. Would probably notify them if I found a bug, since I am sure they would want to know for quality assurance. Thank you for the review!
