MatizAuthentic Spanish Paella Rice ($7.95): Gathered from within the Albufera National Park, this rice is naturally ideal for absorbing liquid without becoming creamy or losing its texture – qualities making it perfect for paella!

La Catedral Premium Organic Sweet Piquillo Peppers ($9.95): Sweet and smoky roasted red peppers. Piquillo peppers are a classic Spanish accompaniment, perfect for working into tapas or serving with meat and cheese.

Chiquilin Paella Seasoning ($4.95): Smoky and slightly spicy seasoning to make preparing the classic Spanish dish easier. This jar should make quite a few paella!

Palacios Authentic Spanish Chorizo Iberico ($12.95): This pack has a giant loop of the fiery, paprika-laden sausage.

ChocoHigos Dark Chocolate Figs ($9.95): Tender, plump, and chewy figs enrobed in dark chocolate. Pajarero figs make these family-made treats more tender than expected.

Ines Rosales Sweet Olive Oil Tortas de Aceite ($5.45): These traditional tortas are made by hand using the original 100-year-old recipe. Dusted with sugar and flavored with anise, these look like a flatbread but eat more like a butter cookie.

Pablo Garrigos Ibanez Spanish Turron ($9.95): Delicately crunchy roasted almonds held together in a light milk chocolate slab. Very elegant and delicious, the combination is neither too dark nor overly sweet.

The figs are individually enrobed and came piled in a tub. The Tortas were individually wrapped loosely within the outer, hermetic packaging. The Turron comes as a single slab – I love that you see the face of the sliced almonds on the top of the bar.

This subscription box is so wonderful in that it provides a broad gastronomic exploration of a country at a time, and it’s easy, fun, and usable. Everything from Yummy Bazaar has always been top notch and really fresh – they’re an impressive company and the subscription is even more so. This was a nice box with a pleasant combination of classic and atypical items – and the value was about $61.15!

Also FYI – you can also skip or cancel at any time – and they will accommodate most special diets if you need. They have a $9.95 per month Mini Sampler box too! Have you tried Yümmy Bazaar? What did you think of this month’s box?
