The box was heavy this month, and I couldn't wait to dig in.
There was a card on how to win a free box and a coupon for your first box, see details at the end of the review.
The information card has a description and pictures of each snack. This month, there was also a postcard from Mexico, this month's snack location. The postcard gave a general overview of what kinds of snacks are in the box.
I couldn't wait to dig in. Doesn't it just look yummy?
I didn't take pictures of the snacks outside the package, but watch my review at the end of the review, for a look at each snack and to hear our taste impressions.
Paleta Payaso by Ricolini: I really loved this treat, other than the really creepy clown, I HATE clowns. These are round thick chocolate covered marshmallow thick patties and the faces are made of gum drops. The snack on the right is a what it looks like.
Arcoiris by Gamesa: There are three packs in the bag, and each package has four snacks! These are square Graham Crackers with round gummy/marshmallows covered in coconut. My husband didn't even taste the coconut, quite amazing since we both hate it.
Paleton de Cajeta by Coronado: These are made of caramelized goat's milk and are a bit chewy with a slight chocolate/sweet taste. These used to be given to solders in the Mexican War of Independence.
Mini Mamut by Gamesa: There were four packs in the bag and each pack has two snacks. These are very similar to moon pies but they had more cookie/cake filling and not as much marshmallow.
Bubu Lubu: This bar is made of marshmallow and strawberry gummy/jelly and covered in chocolate. This was also really good and pretty much tastes how it sounds.
Takis Fuego by Barcel: This are a rolled corn chip covered in spicy powder. They are a bit similar to the Fire Cheetos, but these have a complex flavor, spicy and tart at the same time. I thought these were too spicy at first, but I love the flavor so much I don't care.
Ruffles Quesco by Sabritas: These almost seem like a snack I should be able to find at my grocery store. The cheese is a cross between cheddar + sour cream ruffles and the cheese on the Chees-Ums Pringles. I found out that Amazon sells these, so I am going to pick up another bag.
Carlos V Chocolate by Nestle: These are named after King Carlos V of Spain, and taste like a milk chocolate bar. It might taste slightly different from American milk chocolate, but still good.
Pulparindo by De La Rosa: First off, Treats sent an entire box of these, 20 packs! These are a fruit strip (made of Tamarind Fruit) and mixed with chili peppers. I really wasn't a fan of the chili pepper/fruit combo, so C will take the box to his office.
Cacahuates Peanuts by Sabritas: These peanuts are covered in a spicy powder, but are not nearly as hot as the Fuego chips.
Final Thought: This box was really amazing and I was very impressed with how many snacks was in the box. Many subscriptions just include one package of snacks, but Treats included several full size packages with multiples snacks. I don't know how they can send this box for just $24.95/month.
