Brrr! This shot of St. Petersburg, Russia looks as cold as it does gorgeous! I’m guessing there’s at least one tasty Russian treat inside the box…

I love that this box gives you items from an assortment of countries. It’s a change of pace from boxes that focus on just one country. Being from different countries usually means different flavor profiles—I get bored easily with snacks, so I love when a box shakes things up!

Inside the booklet, there’s a product list complete with images and fun colors. They do a great job of explaining what makes each product special, as well as some details on how to enjoy each food.

Ooo, this is interesting. I really appreciate that they took the time to explain this quirk of eastern European foods. I’ll admit that I don’t always check the expiration dates of snacks when they arrive, but I appreciate the fact that the box had it covered!

Sal de Ibiza Potato Chips, 45g – Value $2.95 (Buy a 125g bag for $5.95 on Yummy Bazaar)

Ugh, how amazing are potato chips? These light, crisp snacks from Sal de Ibiza are picture perfect—they’re pretty much what I imagine when I think about potato chips. The packaging is dreamy, too. (I’d never have expected to say that about a potato chip bag!)

Check out our review of the Yummy Bazaar World Sampler Box for March 2017!

According to the info card, these chips are made from super think “Agria” potatoes hand-simmered in sunflower oil. I did notice that these chips are a bit on the oilier side, but not so much so that it’s distracting. The star of the show, of course, is the Ibizan sea salt. The flavor is light, not too sharp, and totally addicting. My only qualm is that I wanted a bigger bag!

Tea Biscuits by Spartak, 3.5 oz. – Value $2.95

I’m a cookie fan, and I’ve just started to explore the world of biscuits. I love how biscuits have the satisfying crumble of a cookie with less sweetness.

I love the patterns on these square biscuits! On the first bite, I caught on to the most prominent flavor of these cookies, which is vanilla. But there’s also this odd fruit flavor that creeps in, which I didn’t expect. I can’t put my finger on what the flavor is, and the ingredient label only mentions “fruit medley.” It’s not a strong flavor by any means, but it threw me off a little bit. I probably would’ve liked them better without it.

2 Packs of Mustard Green Peas by Triko, about 0.34 oz. each – Total Value $0.47 (Buy an 8.46 oz./25-pack bag for $5.85 on Yummy Bazaar)

I was a little surprised to find a Taiwanese snack in a box focused on eastern Europe. I didn’t worry about it for long, though, since these peas were so good!

First of all, these individual snack packs look way more elegant than a snack pack should be. There’s even a silver-stamped seal on each one! These teeny tiny peas have been roasted, so they’re almost herbal in flavor—they really didn’t taste like peas at all. I didn’t pick up on the mustard aspect of this snack, but they’re tasty nonetheless!

Russian Chocolate Dobrjanka Funduk Chocolate Waffle, 1.5 oz. – Value $1.50

Now, let’s get to my favorite item in the box. I love all things chocolate, and this little morsel satisfies all of my dreams for a chocolate treat.

You can think of this confection as sort of an amped up Ferrero Rocher. It doesn’t have a strong hazelnut flavor, but it does have a super-crunchy outer layer, as well as layers of wafer just beneath it.

The best part of this treat, though, is the chocolate cream center. The chocolate flavor is rich and decadent, and the texture is just thick enough without being stiff or truffle-like. It tastes a bit like a really fancy frosting might taste. Yum!

Fior di Frutta Strawberry Fruit Spread by Rigoni di Asiago, 18g – Value $0.82 (Buy a 250g jar for $11.41 on Amazon)

This sample of fruit spread comes in a little “folder” that looks like a jam jar. Cute!

I love that this item isn’t just a tasty find, but also a healthy one! It’s sweetened with apple juice, which is actually the most noticeable part of the flavor. This smooth spread had as much apple flavor to me as it did strawberry. It lacked the dessert-like, super-sugary aspect of most jellies and jams, which I’ll admit, bummed me out since that’s what I love the most about these kinds of products. But I also enjoyed the fact that this was a healthier product, so no worries.

I feel like this was a product that I might actually look for and buy for my pantry in the future! Toast and jam is a great snack, and I like the idea that I’d be making it with a real Italian product.

Georgia’s Natural Traditional Georgian Spice Khmeli Suneli, 1 oz. – Value $3.95

The final item in the box is this spice blend from Georgia. I was expecting snacks, but I’m pretty happy that this pantry item is in the box, too!

Check out our review of the Yummy Bazaar World Sampler Box for March 2017!

The flavor in this blend, which the info card says is fantastic with fresh green beans (YUM!), tastes like a delicious cross between warm, earthy falafel and a rich curry. It has a heat to it, which sneaks in as sort of an aftertaste. I like using spices instead of adding unnecessary salt or fat to recipes, so I’m eager to try this spice in some dishes!

Verdict: I really loved this Yummy Bazaar World Sampler Box! The variety of flavors and products (pantry picks, savory snacks, sweet treats) was awesome, and I enjoyed getting to go on a little flavor vacation to several different countries via just one box. Plus, I thought the value was great. The box is only $9.99 a month (with free shipping to the continental U.S.), but the products inside have a value of about $13.00. What a fun way to experience different cultures!

  1. The packaging on the green peas says they’re garlic roasted instead! They are my favorite snacks of all time they’re absolutely addicting.

  2. Great review! I gifted this box for Christmas and have been dying to know more about the products and the info cards included. The recipients seem to be enjoying the boxes, but of course I don’t expect detailed reviews and pictures from them every time they get one. 😉 Thanks for doing this!

    (Side note: this might sound silly, but it almost even seems worth it just to experience the beautiful and unique packaging of these items!)
