Candies

Lychee Candies – $3.82

These hard candies taste really good. I have never tasted a lychee fruit so I’m not sure if they taste just like it or not. They are fruity, sweet and even a little floral and remind me of a strawberry flavored candy.

Cocomels Sea Salt Coconut Milk Caramels – Value $2.50?

I was so excited to find these in my BoCandy box. I’ve wanted to try them ever since Liz reviewed them in her May Cozy Reader Club subscription. They lived up to my expectations and may have even exceeded them. Wow! I love caramels and I love coconut. These are sweet, soft, and chewy and you can really taste the coconut. Plus they have just a hint of sea salt. I’ve already ordered myself more!

Cookies

Byrd’s Chocolate Cheesecake Cookies – $3?

I was expecting these cookies to be soft since they are called cheesecake cookies and cheesecake is such a smooth creamy texture. They were dry, crumbly chocolate cookies with a white “cream cheese powder” sprinkled on top. Nothing about these cookies was reminiscent of cheesecake to me and I didn’t care for them at all.

Prestige Cake Bar in Strawberry – $2?

This cake bar was dipped in chocolate and was a yellow cake with a layer of strawberry spread in the middle. When I cut it open you could hardly see any filling, but you did get a fruity taste. I thought the cake was kind of dry but my son enjoyed this.

Strawberry Cake

This is what the bar looked like cut open. As you can see, a lot of the coating stuck to the wrapper.

Megehka

Megehka Honey Cake – Value $1.50

I’ve never seen one of these honey cakes before. From what I could find on the internet these are made in Bulgaria. The cake is like a round flat disc dipped in chocolate. The cake itself was very dry and I couldn’t get any honey flavor at all. I don’t know if mine was stale or if this is the texture it’s supposed to be, but I found it to be disappointing.

Megehka Sliced

This is what the Megehka looks like inside.

Verdict: I have mixed feelings about my first Bocandy box. Though it’s called a candy box a lot of what they send is more cookie/snack-based. I enjoyed both candies they sent very much, but didn’t like any of the cookie/cake items this month. I also don’t see the value this month matching up with the cost of the box. I received about $13 worth of items for $15. While I appreciate the curation and enjoy learning about new candies and snacks from around the world I would like to see the value go up next month.

What do you think of Bocandy? And do you think Cocomels are the greatest thing ever too?

  1. Don’t worry, its fall now- we will be back to Chocolate and gummies.

  2. BYRD’S famous cookies apparently have been around since 1924 so during some special on a website I bought an order which came with a nice glass cookie jar with the BYRD logo. Was surprised when I get a small, dry, bland, crumbly, factory made little cookie which tasted like it came from the original 1924 batch. Still have the cool jar, but cannot for the life of me figure out why they lasted so long in the cookie world with such a tasteless product?

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one that feels this way…

  3. I have subbed and cancelled 2-3 times now and last a month before cutting out again. the value just has never been there with their boxes TBH

  4. I’ve had the same experience – not enough candy, too much dry snack cakes. The snack cakes have been more prevalent the last few months, maybe because of it being summer and being hot. I know snack boxes struggle with shipping things that won’t melt. They have a Japanese candy box too – I wonder if that one is more candy-focused? I cancelled my sub last month – glad I did. thanks for the review!

    • Thanks for reading and sharing your experience, Jenn. Dry snack cakes are not fun. This was my first month – I’m hoping for better next month!
