MiamMiam Box May 2016 box

MiamMiam Box is a monthly subscription box that delivers only the latest and tastiest French snacks right to your door.  “MiamMiam” is how they say “yum yum” in France — like “mmm” and “yum” together!  The subscription has three levels:  Mini, Original, and Maxi — and each has unique and hard-to-find French treats based on seasonal themes.

The box was in a priority mailer, not in the cute custom designed boxes they show on their home page.

MiamMiam Box May 2016 (1)With every MiamMiam Box you subscribe, they donate a portion of their proceeds to ActionAgainstHunger.Org. The Maxi box equals 2 donations to a food bank!

MiamMiam Box May 2016 review

Everything in my May MiamMiam Box! There was no information card about the items or themes. I subscribed to the Maxi box, described as “about 4 lbs of exclusive and premium French snacks, food, treats, swags and much more!” Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what the other subscription levels comprise.

Brossard Le Mini-Cake Aux Fruits: These were like a soft and spongey fruit cake, with bits of dried fruit like a panettone has. Not my fave!

LU Napolitan:  I love anything from this brand and this made up for having fruitcake in the box – the center was a dense chocolate cream.  Like a Napoleon, it was layered — and it even had frosting and sprinkles (take that, Little Debbie!).

The packages for three were loose in the box and although they were a bit beat up the items turned up ok. I think they could pay more attention to this with some packing material.

Milka: This tasted suspiciously exactly like a Japanese moon pie knock off in another box (that isn’t like a moon pie at all!). It’s a spongey cake with creamy chocolate goo injected into it and tasty.

LU Granola Bar – Extra Sablée: I think this means extra sandy? This is a dry sort of crumbly shortbread bar that bears absolutely no resemblance to shortbread covered in chocolate with a bit of a caramel flavor!  It tasted a bit like a graham cookie, and it certainly wasn’t granola!

LU Prince Gout Chocolat: Mmm, love these! Typical dry biscuit cookie totally loaded with a creamy chocolate center. Yum.

Delacre 1891 Le Sprits: well I suppose this is like a spritz (extruded) cookie with one half covered in chocolate. It was kind of dry and crumbly.  It has a taste and texture that is reminiscent of pie crust.

Delacre 1891 DeliChoc: My husband’s eyes got pretty saucer like when we spotted these in the box. He loved them – and anything with white chocolate!  They are constructed like a Petit Ecolier, but with a thick dry and seemingly unsweetened biscuit.

St Michel Caramel Butter Biscuits: These palmiers were really fantastic – flaky, crispy, buttery, with a sheen of hard caramel. I ate as many as I could stuff into my body at one sitting, it was totally shameful.

Clement Faugier Gourmet Chestnut Spread – Creme Marrons: Chestnuts, vanilla, sugar and water – this is an extremely common French treat!  In France, it rivals Nutella as a crepe filling.  Ardèche is where the best is made and this was a really nice premium item for the maxi box.

This box had 5 multi-serving packages plus 7 single-serving packages. I didn’t do a cost breakdown but this is pretty good for an imported treats subscription!
