TREATS International Snack Subscription Box Review

Friday, October 2, 2015

PR Sample - Wouldn't it be cool (also delicious) to try snacks from other countries each month? I've always enjoyed tasting goodies from around the world, thanks to really nice blog buddies. Treats is a subscription box service that sends their subscribers a box of snacks from a different country every month! How cool is that!?! No traveling necessary! HaHaHa They will send you snacks from different continents such as ASIA, EUROPE, AFRICA, NORTH AMERICA, SOUTH AMERICA, and AUSTRALIA. Let me show you what was inside the box they sent me! I received TEN snacks from JAPAN! Not only did I get to try some great tasting snacks, but now I know the names of some Japanese snack companies! I also got to admire some very pretty packaging! Look below for a special COUPON CODE just for A Very Sweet Blog Readers!


 Morinaga - Milk Caramel Candy

These are AWESOME! Boxed and individually wrapped, these rich tasting caramels taste delicious. They're fresh, chewy and dare I say better than Brach's!?! Yes, they are!

Uha - Cola Puccho

Another candy that was in my box, was Cola Puccho. They taste like gummies, but have a center of liquid cola that bursts in your mouth! These tasted really good! Chewy, sweet & sour all mixed together. 

Glico - Pocky Tsubu Tsubu

I call them Pocky sticks! LOL I've tried these before, but in a different flavor. These crunchy strawberry flavored snacks are really tasty. They kind of remind me of a yogurt coated cookie. 

Glico - Giant Caplico Strawberry

It seems like Glico makes a lot of cute Asian snacks :) Who can resist a strawberry ice cream cone? It's strawberry with a chocolate center. All of it is crunchy. Tasty, but I can't compare it to anything. LOL It's not overly sweet, but I prefer Pocky :)

Meiji - Watapachi Cotton Candy

I didn't read the Treats "What's Inside Your Treats Box?" card before diving into these treats! I kind of wanted to be SURPRISED by the different tastes. I could not tell by the packaging, what was inside! I was kind of scared because there were monsters all over it and various things coming out of all of their mouths! HaHaHa I reached my hand inside and still felt spooked! Is this seaweed? LOL Then when I pulled it out, I said well it looks like cotton candy (candy floss). It tasted really good! It has a watermelon taste to it!

Jagabee - Soy Sauce Potato Crisps

This was another favorite for me! If you're familiar with Andy Capp Fries, these are similar but BETTER. They don't have as much seasoning. It says soy sauce etc. but you can't taste it. It just tastes like really good baked potato fries. Do these come in a BIG BAG? Because they are absolutely yummy!

 Calbee - Baked Shrimp Chips

Okay, so there was ONE snack I didn't like at all! This one! I love shrimp, but not these! I tried shrimp crackers a couple of months ago and didn't like those either, so I must not like Asian shrimp snacks in general. They look like puffed crunchy sticks! I just don't like the smell or taste. :(


Amanoya - Himemaru

Rice crackers are usually very bland. Well not these! They have a light seasoning on them that gives them a tasty kick! Great crunchy snacks.

Uegaki - Kaki-no-tane

I've had these before, thanks to Little Luxury List (see here)! But what I didn't know about, were the different varieties. These are the rice crackers, but she sent me the ones with rice crackers & peanuts. Really tasty snacks!

Kasugai - Fruit Gummy Assortment

And finally GUMMY'S! FRUIT GUMMY'S! Throw everything you ever thought a gummy candy was OUT OF YOUR HEAD! These will have you dancing! Want to know why? THEY TASTE LIKE REAL FRUIT! I never ate gummy candies before because many taste so artificial and are rubbery. NOT THESE! I'm glad this is a big bag. Three flavors in these lychee, mango and strawberry. They're also GLUTEN FREE...LOVE!

Hiya doll...this looks so brilliant!! I would try a box like this. I've seen some of these snacks before, but never tried them, they look great! Am glad you enjoyed your box. Shrimp flavours don't usually go well with me either, it always has a weird taste to me. Happy weekend doll xx

Lilli said...

Really?! Oh lol this is the coolest thing ever, always wish for a service like this, glad to know of it! And no wonder is from u lol!:) Happy weekend! xo

Jackie Harrison said...

Laughing so hard in your description about the cotton candy one I love cotton candy great review doll.

Nerline Germain said...

Good morning, Kim!
I wonder if they also have snacks from ANTARCTICA. Lol. Just a joke, people! When I was in grade school, back in Haiti, there only were five continents, but now they have 7. The reason is because America was not divided between North and South. It was just America. I cannot even remember when Antarctica was added. Haha!
Okay, back to the snacks! They look delicious. I love each package. And I think it is a great concept. I love the cultural aspect of it. And who does not like a good snack?

HAPPY WEEKEND, KIM!

Pamela RG said...

Oh my, I would try any snacks too. I like the shrimp chips, those are addictive.

Julie's Lifestyle said...

Hi Kim,
How fun to belong to that club and get all of those fun snacks from all over the world! I love that idea and thanks for sharing it with us.
I hope you have a wonderful fall weekend.
Thanks for the sweet visits.

This box sounds so cool, Kim - and delicious! I love that the one you got featured Japanese treats, because that was a great way for me to know how varied the selection was. Here in Vancouver we have a much greater access to snacks from Asia than almost any other city in North America and there were still things I had never heard of! I'm usually hesitant to sign up for monthly subscription boxes but I may just give this one a try - I do love snacks ;)
xox,
Cee

Gabrielle said...

Ah! I had no idea this service even existed! I'm always keen to try sweets from other countries (and in fact often prefer them!), so this would be an ideal subscription service to try out. I often hear/read about bloggers sending other bloggers sweets from their country and so I'd imagine they'd love the idea of this :)

OMG . you've got treats for a month !
How amazing that this service is available, I am wondering if the products have sanitary registration or if they would be held up at customs or FDA..

Ivana Split said...

These treats look so good. I'm not sure I could try these those... I'd most probably get addicted and frustrated I can't just pop to the shop :(
Great idea though!

jo said...

Hi Kim, I don't generally eat snacks, but these sound good! I love shrimp chips, maybe that brand isn't good and who doesn't like gummy candies.

Why is it I always find the food posts when I'm hungry?
Lol I haven't heard of Treats although I have heard of this concept! Sooo cool :D

Also, smart move by you not accepting his friend request (in reference to that comment you left me on my last post lol). Ugh! Men! xD Lol I do hope I one day find "Prince Charming" or someone along those lines, but for now, I'm satisfied with where I'm at and the people that are brought into my life. Albeit it is fun to collect these memories/stories along the way lol

Lauren Carter said...

I love this concept! So fun! I've only tried Pocky in a cookies and cream flavor, but all of these snacks sound pretty tasty.

Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

yum! My kids and I love Pocky sticks. They used to sell that and some of those snacks in our local Asian supermarket before they closed. I'm hoping another one might pop up soon because we miss our snacks.

Beauty said...

This is such a cool idea; I have never heard of snack box subscription before; I bet these all tasted yummy.

Jane said...

Oh this is a kind of subscription box that would be very worth it :)

daisyperson said...

Yes, I do want the box! It looks amazing!
