Treats is a monthly snack subscription full of snacks from around the world. You can expect to receive eclectic and interesting snacks that you’ve never sampled before (unless, of course, you’ve lived in the featured country recently)! The Standard Pack offers 4-5 snacks, while the Premium box offers 8-10. This, of course, is the Premium Box. It’s quick to enroll, and you’ll get your first box within a few days of when you subscribe.
The packaging is simple and elegant. Tissue paper keeps the contents a secret until you are ready to dive in.
The box always includes a beautiful postcard welcoming us to this month’s Treats destination. Usually, it is a shot of one of the most iconic landmarks of the country. It doesn’t get much more iconic than the London Bridge, which welcomes us to The United Kingdom!
The box is filled to the top with goodies! Everything comes in its original packaging, often solely in the language of the featured country – sometimes it’s just as much fun to see the unique package styling as it is to try the snacks! The box is always so full, that they don’t need to use any extra packing material.
DEAL: You can save 15% on your first month with coupon code HELLO15.
This month’s box is British-themed! The introduction card tells a little about the snack culture and points out some of the flavors or snack styles that are popular or unique to the destination.
Treats now includes an additional card that gives, even more, info on the destination country and its culture. There is also a blatant giveaway of next month’ s destination – looks like we are off to the UK!
There’s also a recipe card for making traditional British Fish & Chips at home! It’s a fun idea, but it looks a bit involved for the ready-to-eat snack crowd likely to enjoy Treats.
There is also a handy info card that gives the name and maker of each treat, as well as a short description of each.The blurbs give you a sense of what to expect, but you’ll have to check each treat’s label (and possibly hire a translator) for more detailed info on ingredients and nutrition. Even with the card, the only way to truly appreciate everything is to taste it!
Everything in the box. The composition of each Treats collection depends on the local snacking culture, but there is usually a good mix of sweet and savory and individual and family packs.
Tayto Salt & Vinegar Flavour Potato Chips. I can sum up this snack in three words: crispy, sour, and salty. I like the great balance of tastes and it doesn’t make us stop munching.
Guinness Burts Chips ($1.45) Irish stout-flavored chips sounds interesting! These crispy potaties are flavored with barley and hops, that gives it a bittersweet taste.
Custard Creams By Hill Biscuits. These are yummy vanilla-flavored cream sandwiched between two crumbly biscuits.
These little snacks are creamy! Some connoisseurs like to twist the biscuits apart and enjoy the center first, like an oreo!
Shortbread Fingers By Walkers ($0.71) These shortbread fingers are the most popular product from Walkers. They’re made of wheat flour, butter, sugar, and salt.
It’s crunchy and crumbly, but what I really liked about this snack is its rich buttery taste.
Treacle Toffee By Walkers ($1.58) Made from glucose syrup, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, black treacle, vegetable oil, butter and salt, these wrapped treats are more akin to American caramel rather than hard toffee.
Treacle is a syrup made from sugarcane and is basically just a bit lighter than black strap molasses, and it’s one of this sweet treat’s main ingredients.
Milkybar Buttons By Nestle ($1.08) It’s a delicious variation of the famous Milky Bar. These yummy morsels are perfect for sharing and a great sweet snack.
I remembered Milky Bars from Nestle and I didn’t know that they’ve done button versions of the creamy white chocolate, not until we got this box!
Cadbury White Buttons ($1.37) This looks similar to the Milky Bar buttons yet there’s always that distinctive taste of Cadbury chocolate that makes it easy to tell them apart.
So milky and chocolaty!
Can you tell them apart? These two are great for sharing!
Drifter By Nestle ($1.25) I’m loving this wafer coated in chewy caramel. It’s smothered with all the chocolaty goodness that can never go wrong.
These fine fingers are chewy because of the caramel, and I also like that it’s wafer-centered because it added some crunch. Really fun and delightful!
Cadbury Whole Nut Chocolate Bar ($1.20) Nut and chocolate lovers won’t let this one pass, that’s for sure.
The rich and creamy Cadbury chocolate with whole nuts inside is the real deal. Well, any nuts paired with Cadbury chocolate will always be a great treat!
All segments of the bar is nut-filled.
Look at those whole nuts! It’s so addicting with the chocolate.
Aero Peppermint Bar By Nestle ($1.20) Chocolate and peppermint is another no-fail combination.
These are easy to break off for sharing. It’s really airy and it melts in the mouth too!
Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles By Nestle ($3.72) These fruit sugar sweets come in 5 flavors: blackcurrant, lemon, strawberry, lime and orange.
I just can’t let them melt in my mouth, gotta chew those fruity goodness!
This box from the UK is really full, and filled mostly with chocolates and sweets. The kids are really happy, and so am I! Everything is delightful, including the crumbly cookies. They’re all yummy and I don’t think they’ll stay long on our snack drawers!
