Treats International Snack Subscription Box Review: Croatia And Serbia

PR Sample - Remember my review of Treats? Well, they reached out to me again. They said, they had a treat box that I would like even MORE than the Japan box! Say whaaat!?! I could not pass that up. I said, SEND IT TO ME! I opened the box and there was a BEAUTIFUL card that said, 'these snacks are from Serbia & Croatia'. Crickets <Silence> You should've seen my facial expression! PRICELESS! I've never had a Serbia or Croatia ANYTHING! Well let me tell you! Serbia and Croatia have some REALLY DELICIOUS SNACKS! This box had me dancing. My mom took half my snacks (and you're talking about a PICKY EATER)! I'm so glad they sent me doubles! Below are my thoughts on each and a discount code just for A Very Sweet Blog readers. Thanks Treats!

These puffed snacks taste so good! They're light. Not heavy. They have a light, smoke (bbq) and seasoned taste. They are airy like Cheetos cheese puffs. I ate the entire bag. Excellent! I wish I had more! They'll make you throw away your potato chip bag.

These are pretzel sticks. I liked the fact they didn't taste salty. Sometimes that is what turns me off from pretzels. They were fresh, crunchy and tasty.

Think...a sugar wafer...that's drenched in chocolate! Crisp, light and chocolatey! LOVED this snack. 

As soon as you open the package, you smell authentic banana! It even looks like a banana. 
Yummy chocolate and the filling is very fluffy.

It looks like a Nestle Crunch candy bar, but it's YUMMY shortbread cookies and chocolate. 

It's marshmallow, covered in chocolate with a graham cracker crust. SO GOOD! 
I loved that they were individually wrapped. 

Isleri + Eurocrem
This made me love vanilla wafers again! It's a vanilla wafer, then a vanilla wafer drenched in chocolate and then a chocolate filling. Tastes DELICIOUS!

Ki Ki Plus
At first I thought the packaging said Kim Kim! How VAIN OF ME! LOL I'm tearing these up! Two flavors! Pineapple & Cherry! Each contains Vitamin C and have a true FRUIT TASTE! It doesn't taste artificial.

Kras Animal Kingdom
How cute are these! They are milk chocolate bars with cute animal packaging. I'm finding that International chocolates are not as sweet as the American kind. I prefer it. You can taste the true cocoa.

My mom tried these, because she LOVES coconut! She said it was a rich coating of milk chocolate and the coconut tasted yummy and true to taste :D

This is a solid milk chocolate bar on a stick! I loved the cute animal figure.

Any coffee lovers out there? This has a mocha coffee filling within a sugar wafer. 
The mocha is VERY LIGHT! Awesome snack.

Kinder Happy Hippo (GERMANY)
Ok! So I bit his nose off! It was either that or his butt! LOL SO DELICIOUS! It was suggested that I freeze it, but with the remodeling going on in my house I never did. But this tasted so good! It was like molten chocolate cake! Chocolate plus cookie! Loved it.

  1. Well, gonna have to go to Serbia and Croatia for sure just for the snacks, because they look that tasty!

  2. Oh my gosh I was drooling by the end of this post! Every single thing you got is something I would eat in a heartbeat haha, there was chocolately goodness galore. My least favorite thing about getting snacks from other countries is when you love something and it's impossible to get your hands on again (though I'm making it my mission to try and hunt some of these down: Munchmallow please!)

  3. haha I think I would have made that face at first too Kim! I've never thought what kind of snacks would come from there...

    That kinder hippo looks so tasty! We have kinder bars that are like that, just plain chocolate bars, but the wafer is on the inside and the chocolate is on the outside. That's like the reverse, would have been so tasty! :)

  4. I remember seeing these on your Snapchat and drooling along with you when I saw them. I have a Croatian friend and I can't say I've ever seen any of these, if I have I've probably forgotten. I have tried those mocha wafers though. My mum sometimes buys them and I kinda hate them. They always taste stale to me. But it could just be the way the store stores them or perhaps they don't travel well to this side of the world lol.


  5. I'm getting a kick of the name like Bananko to funny.

  6. Oh my, they have the most delicious treats indeed, Id like to try the box too, no wonder ur mom took her part too!:P We have happy hippo too in Italy and always thought was italian lol, there is also a chocolate version (outside) and that is to put in the fridge, the one u have I also prefer to taste in ambient temperature. Kisses Kim! xo

  7. This was so fun to see! I love and eat all of these and I have been loving all of these since my childhood. What was your fav? do tell:):)!!!
    Croatia has some really excellent quality food brands, so I'm happy you got the chance to try them....and now you can understand what a struggle it is for me to resist eating all the time;)....but seriously, we're totally foodies here and in this whole region ( Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, BIH, Montenegro etch) one can really dine like a king!

  8. just one thing...I don't think that Kinder hippo is a Croatian or Serbian product....Kinder is a well know Italian brand that was originally developed in Germany...but the rest of the products are all local.

  9. I can honestly say I've never tried anything from both these countries which makes me kinda sad now esp after seeing all these treats. You got an awesome package there, Kim! I want everything, please! hehe

  10. Wow - so many amazing yummy treats! x

  11. omg, delicious :D I want to eat it all now ahah

  12. The concept of this box is just amazing Kim. I love how they make treats and snacks from around so accessible!

  13. Everything sounds soo so good! We have Kinder Hippos here in the UK & Kinder Bueno's are my favourite chocolate bars!
    Pretty Mad Things .. xo

  14. I loved your last review of the Japanese snacks, Kim, but this one is even better; I spent some time travelling in Central and Eastern Europe in 2009. One of the things I still remember most was the food, from the delicious meals to the simplest snacks bought at the grocery store checkout. Nothing was "healthy" the way we think of healthy in North America, but it was all fresh and natural and so delicious. Everything in this box sounds so good. And I love Happy Hippos, yum!

  15. Oooh it looks sooo tasty ! <3333

  16. OMG these Serbian and Croatian kids have the best luck ! they get some amazing goodies in their lunchbox ;)
    A few weeks ago I tried some Cheetos like chips made in Guatemala - and I have to say they were amazing… unfortunately we are exposed to products that have the mean$ to get to you and we miss out.

  17. OMG I loveeee Kinder Happy Hippos!! All the other snacks sound amazing! Especially the banana chocolate one!!

  18. You got me drooling over cosmetics, now you have me drooling over proper food too! I love it!

  19. Why Kim Whyyyyy... now im sitting here in bed wishing I had a chocolate or everything in this box.

  21. That is so freaking amazing, Kim and I can only imagine your expression, my jaw would literally drop if I were you. I never had anything from Croatia and Serbia so dang, this is a damn good box! And I just check the website and they are shipping to Canada too! Yay!

  22. I can understand why mom had to try some. Everything looks so yummy!
    I am sure you could hear a hair drop when you heard where the treats were coming from!
    Kisses and hugs, Kim.

  23. So cool to see these different snacks! They all look fantastic, I want the hippo one and the mocha coffee! Drooling over these. Who knew Serbia and Croatia were making such awesome snacks!


  24. Ok so now I'm hungry...thanks! lol! These look so tasty, especially the Kidy bar. I adore coconut!

  25. I love the concept of this subscription like who doesn't like snacks. I have to be honest I got hungry just by looking at this post. All of these goodies look so good.

  27. you are so lucky!! all of these look yummy! what a great gift package :)

  28. Lucky you to have tried all those sweets from Croatia and Serbia. I would like the chocolate and marshmallow ones.

  29. OMG all these treats look delic, but especially the chocolate ones! Dang, if I wasn't trying to budget I would so sign up. Hmm, maybe when I see where I stand at the end of the year I will order a box.

  30. Oh wow, what a great opportunity to taste some unusual foods you may have never had before! Although I've never tasted anything Serbia/Croatia (or at least, not that I know of!), I DO recognise that tasty German Kinder Hippo ;) haha

  31. All that chocolate!!! Oh my gosh, I need or all LOL! Everything looks so good Kim, and I've never heard of any of these!

  32. So interesting! And yes, you are right, it's not often when we come across something from these countries. :) Now I am wondering if you are going to get anything Russian... Our chocolate has always been pretty good and we have a few other things similar to marshmallows, special chocolate bars and fruit jellies that I adore (and they used to be very natural, too - not sure about now, though)
    Anyway, thanks for the intro - I did recognise the Hippo, but everything else was new (but waffles and puffy thingies reminded me of something Russian - hence a memory report above). :) :) :) :)

  33. Haha, so cool you like Happy Hippo, Kim! It's actually the first time I read to freeze it.. huhhh?? :-DD Anyway... Kim Kim Plus looks like something similar I've tried before. The other treasure were new to me as well. All in all really versatile box to try. <3

  34. Yum! If these were at a supermarket, I would get so intimated because I'd never know which ones are good.

    xo Jo

  35. The Kras Animal Kingdom chocolates look so cute and yummy ;-)

  36. happy snacking indeed! these look delicious! :)

  37. love these! is the bananko filling hard? reminds me of violet crumble...
