August Candy German

Who loves food and candy from foreign lands? I do, I do! That's why I was super excited when Candy German offered to send me a box to review. And yes it really came all the way from Germany.  Each money Candy German will send you 6-8 handpicked German confections, that will including anything from chocolate, wine gums, cookie, gingerbread, etc. The price of the is in Euros on their website so be aware of that when ordering. The monthly price is €29 which is about $38.00 with shipping from Germany included and there are options for 6 and 12 month plans at a little discount.

Price €29 or $39 a month with 6 and 12 month plans. 

I believe this ships worldwide and ships from Germany.

The good:

Love foreign goodies: I know I do! I love seeing what flavor combos other countries come up with.

Need a unique gift: They offer gift subscriptions. Perfect for someone who may have just moved form Germany or loves German treats.

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is a little high for a monthly box but would be a nice treat every once and a while.

This is what the box looked like when I opened it. It was shipped in a plain brown box but they are designing the outside of the box so that should change soon. 

All the German treasures inside the box. 

Contents of German Candy Box:

Haribo Gummy Bears, fan edition. Value = $4.79 - The boyfriend was excited to see this. Apparently he's a gummy bear guy. 

Sallos. Value = $3.99. - this is a hard candy that taste like black licorice. 

Be Happy, Knusprige Kleine Doppel-Kekse (crispy double cookies). Value = $2.00- not a lot of flavor but I liked them. 

Mini Nussecken (mini corners). Value - $?? - These were ok, a little try but tasty - especially the hazelnut

Choco Nippon. Value = $2.00 - the only thing than could've made this better is dark chocolate but only because I love dark chocolate. The rice was really big which I liked. 

(2) Knoppers (hazelnut and cream candy) - Value = $1.29/ea. - The type of sugar wafer candy things are one of my favorite types of candy. 

Riesen Karamell. Value = $?? - basic caramel candy. 

Schoko Drops. (chocolate drops). Value $1.99 - These are like giant m&m's.

The approximate value of the items in this box is $20.00. I actually found quite a few of these items at an online shop called German Deli. They also have a store in Texas. I was unable to find a couple of the items online so that price is very much and approximate. I had to use google translate on some of these which was kind of fun in itself. I was surprised shipping only took about a week, I was expecting it to be much longer for some reason.

Verdict: I'm probably not going to subscribe since it's so costly but I would consider it every now and then for a treat.
