Today I’m writing my first of many food reviews, Bocandy September 2016 Subscription Box Review. I decided that I love these monthly subscription boxes. They let me try new things without going overboard with shipping and I don’t break the bank. This box was not sent to me as gift or for a review, so this is my honest review; and this post does not contain any affiliate links. So let’s get down to it. I will first tell you the process as to how to order than I will tell you how long I waited for the box and in the end what to expect and my review of it.
Bocandy September 2016 Subscription Box Review
Bocandy is a monthly subscription box that sends international candies and snacks straight to your door. They claim to ship hard to find, exotic and new candy. You can choose from three boxes: Bocandy Big Snack Box $20, Asian Candy Subscription Box $20, Bocandy Starter Box $9.99. Even though on their site they claim to have four, I was only able to find three boxes. You can choose to pay for the boxes in one of the four option: Month to Month, 3 Month Prepay, 6 Month Prepay, 12 Month Prepay. All subscriptions will automatically renew until cancelled. I placed an order for the Bocandy Starter Box since it was the cheapest and it claimed to send 5 to 7 delicious snacks from all around the world. This is the perfect starter kit. So I said, ok, if this is the starter kit then I will be able to get an idea of what to expect for the bigger boxes. Bocandy Shipping: it’s free to the US, military bases, and Puerto Rico. Everyone else in the world has to pay for shipping. My shipping the Europe cost $10, what is the same price as the box.

Since this shipping was from the USA, I waited about 2 – 3 weeks or the box to arrive. The box looked small (refer to the pictures) so I didn’t expect much. I got eight pieces of product, I am not sure if this was a mistake since the max I was suppose to get was 7, I think they gave me by mistake 2 samples of the same product. Here is what I got in each box with pictures of what the candy looks like. I didn’t get any letter or information concerning the candy but this is what I found online in addition to the labels.
Bocandy Starter Box September 2016
Orion Mini Cola Candy – These tiny candies should taste like Coca Cola but they don’t. They do have a soda taste something like caramela and sprite.
Kabaya Juicy Cider Candy – There are 15 pieces and each one is the size of the cap.
Meisan Popping Cola Candy – It contains grape flavored pop rock candy with white hard candies.
Nordic Sweets Swedish Peppermint Candy Stick – very christmas like and very delicious.
Thomas the Tank Engine Grape taste Chewing Candy – very delicious tastes like grape.
Dutch Bakery Windmill Cookies – They are so yummy that I like them more than the typically swedish gingerbread cookies.
To sum up my Bocandy September 2016 Subscription Box Review, I would like to add that considering the price and the products that I got, the box costs me $20 per month what is more than the retail value of the box ($17-18). Even though this are good sizes of candies, I have to say that it just doesn’t pay off for me due to shipping. I will not be ordering this box again since it doesn’t pay off for me, but if you are located in the USA, this could be a fun box to try a few months in a row.
We in our house liked the candy in this order.
