Try the World : Holiday Box
The Holiday box came after the Holidays... First, it wasn't wrapped in a red ribbon like other Holiday boxes I saw online. Also, I've been waiting for the Rome box for 4 months and never received it. I did however get he Rio box and the England box. That being said this box had a lot to live up to and I did enjoy that it represented food from multiple countries. I also noticed this box didn't have as many amazing goodies as other Holiday boxes. It didn't include: Favarger Milk Chocolate, Doce De Leite set, Les Confitures à L’Ancienneor or the HazerBaba Turkish Delight with Pistachio.
My box had Rip Van Wafels, Teas, Scandinavian cookie ginger snaps, Urbani Tartufi Truffle oil, Guylian Belgian Hazelnut Chocolate Truffes, Maison D’Armorine French Salted Caramel Chocolate, and Rendez-Vous French Fruit Flavored Candies in Peach, pear and cherry.
I've never been a chocolate person, however the Guylian Belgian Hazelnut Chocolate Truffes are fantastic! I wish that I had gotten the Doce De Leite set instead of the French Salted Caramel Chocolate, and Rendez-Vous French Fruit Flavored Candies... but I guess it wasn't meant to be. This has been my least favorite box so far, but mostly because it made no sense to get this in mid-January, it would have been better to get this in November (instead of my England box). The other winners are the Rip Van Wafels and the Ginger snaps!
