[UPDATED REVIEW] After a 2 month delay for my first box (and then a third month for 'lack of inventory' but the compromise of a free upgrade), I received my first box in 3/17 - Israel! The box had a great combo of salty + sweet snacks (plus a little wooden dreidel!), and the little fact booklet is a great touch. The snacks were a little less exotic than I'd hoped, but still interesting and fun. I still wish they'd include more small non-edible items a la the dreidel I received with this box, but if you enjoy learning about other cultures and aren't hard-up for that $25, I definitely recommend it.

Ordered in Dec '16 and due to holidays was told my first box wouldn't arrive until Feb. After getting super excited, received an email in early Feb saying they'd run out of that month's box and I'd get a free upgrade to the $25 box for March. 'Kay. The box is really neat - 12+ snacks all from a specific country, with a little booklet discussing the culture and giving lengthy descriptions of each snack (also includes a recipe/local game, and a link to a playlist of local music). Each month's country is a surprise which adds to the fun. One of the snacks on the list wasn't in the box. The snacks are varied (salty, sweet, chips, etc) and in this first box I didn't receive anything as weird/exotic as I'd maybe hoped for. I won't say it's overpriced but it could be a tad bit cheaper, and it'd be cool if they added some trinkets or stickers to the mix. It was never my intent to go with the $25/mo option ($300/year!!!) and I think the $13 option (comes with 6 snacks instead of 12) might feel less worthwhile once I switch back to that, especially since I'll know I'm missing out on half the goods.

Really just junk food in a box from different countries. It is nice but not worth the fee per month especially when you could get all the same stuff for cheaper online.
