This month’s Treats destination is Greece! The packaging is simple yet neat, and you are always greeted with the flag of the featured country when you open the box. Tissue paper keeps the contents a secret until you are ready to dive in.
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.
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.
The box always comes with 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. This month, it’s the Parthenon Temple, Acropolis, Greece!
The box also includes another card that features some facts about Greece, plus a clue for your next month’s box.
This month’s featured recipe is Baklava!
There is also an 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.
Papadopoulos Petit Beurre Classic ($8.95) A delicious tasting bite-sized crispy cookies made with wheat flour, sugar, palm oil, glucose syrup, lactose, milk proteins, dry skimmed milk, salt, and soy lecithin. It’s the perfect treat to pair with coffee, tea, or they can be eaten simply to satisfy a craving for something sweet.

Baloo. Crunchy yet chewy butter caramel candies that contains an incredibly rich and milky caramel flavor. These candies are one of the Greek’s favorite caramel-flavored candy brands, and we got a whole bag!
Ion Choco Freta. This luscious choco-bar from Ion features a scrumptious crispy wafer filled with decadent milk chocolate and covered by yummy chocolate exterior. It’s so crunchy and very chocolaty!
Ion Choco Freta White. This choco-bar has almost the same feature as the Choco Freta above. The only difference is the coating, as it uses uses a creamy white chocolate to cover the bar.
