I was graciously sent these two boxes from Nadi at Candy Adriatico for review. It took a little while for the first one to arrive, but the second box came only a week after it was shipped. Faster than any of my subscription boxes here in the United States!! Candy Adriatico is a candy subscription company formed by a mother and son in Slovenia. They feature hand picked candies from the countries of Slovenia, Italy and Croatia. The boxes I am reviewing contain candies from all three countries. Other options are available however. You can receive a Candy Slovenia, Candy Italia , Candy Croatia or any combination of the three. New to their website is also a candy envelope, which features candy from previous boxes and new items as well. I believe it is available twice monthly.
Each box is a surprise and features up to 500g of candy. All payment is in euros and goes through Paypal. They also offer free world-wide shipping!
Let’s take a look at the box from March first. The theme to this box was “Think Spring”. Every box also features a lovely, collectible postcard. As you can tell, in the picture below, it was stuffed full of delicious treats!
On the inside box lid, lists all of the products contained within, but you can also check out their monthly blog for more information on the brands and candies. I will include that link at the end of this post.
This Bauli Croissant is from Italy. It was very flaky and had a delicate vanilla filling. Can you say deliciouso?
This was a wonderful full-sized bag of hard candies with a surprise hazelnut cream in the center of each. They are from a company called Sumi located in Slovenia. I really enjoyed these so much.
This Gorenjka bar was a true delight. It is coated with chocolate and contains a thin layer of orange jam on the top. Refreshing and sweet. There are no artificial colors or flavorings and this hails from Slovenia as well.
Here is the full display of all the treats included. The Bonko candies bag featured on the right had a variety of individually wrapped taffy type candies. I would best compare them to Starburst candies, but they taste much more natural and were in the flavors of pineapple, strawberry, apple and lemon. They also contain Vitamin C and are a popular candy with children in Croatia.
This bar of chocolate is from Italy. The best thing I could compare it to would be a Nestle’s Crunch. It was very different though. The chocolate tasted different than anything I have tried before, and the rice bits were more firm. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I apologize for the picture. These were delicious candies from Italy called Kinder Bueno. Kinder means children. They were wafer bars covered in milk chocolate with a wonderful hazelnut filling. The company is a line of chocolates from the famous Ferrero company.
The final item of the March box contained a very thin chocolate bar that is from Croatia that is from a company that has been around for 70 years. They are very popular with children and each contains an animal sticker to help feed their love for animals.
So that was March’s box. I was in chocolate heaven for sure. April’s box arrived only a few weeks later. The pictures of the products and the logo above , I have used with permission from Candy Adriatico.
April’s box theme was ” I Love Candy”. Everything is packaged so very nicely and securely. I can’t believe this arrived to me all the way from Europe in only one week’s time! Let’s look at the contents. Of course another lovely postcard was included with various scenes of the truly beautiful country of Slovenia.
These were addictive soft taffy hazelnut candies that were individually wrapped. Yes, I received a full bag and demolished them. They don’t stick in your teeth and have the most adorable squirrel logo ever. They are from a company called Sumi from Slovenia.
This item was truly unique to me. It comes from Croatia. It has a creamy cake- like banana filling and is covered in a delightful dark chocolate. Yes, it is banana shaped! I am in love with this particular snack!!
This was another full sized bag of individually wrapped truffle type candies. They are from the Gorenjka company and were not like any truffle I have tried previously. You have to try Gorenjka chocolate, it is like no other. They were filled with hazelnut cream. They were very hard to stop at just one. These are from Slovenia.
This candy was very interesting indeed. It is a Rum Bar from Croatia and the company Kandit. I believe there were two thin bars included within this package. The rum flavor comes on at the end of each bite and is subtle. I will also link both of my unboxing videos as well towards the end , if you would like to see what all these candies look like unwrapped and my first impressions from tasting them.
I just realized I still have some of these gems left. If you love all things sour, you are going to adore these Cedevita lemon candies. They are square shaped and actually contain 9 vitamins, including Vitamin C. It is literally a lemon explosion in your mouth. I think I need to take my vitamins. Yum!!! Thank you Croatia!
We received three of these Kinder bars. As you can see above, they are segmented. These come from Italy. They are filled with a creamy white milky filming and so very delicious. You can suck on these and they will melt in your mouth. These are candies to savor for sure.
The last item I received in this box were the two coconut candies from the Italian company Rovelli. These were very much like truffles as well, only with an out of this world coconut cream filling. It is so very hard to pick a favorite among all of these fabulous treats contained within these two boxes, but I would put these close to the top.
I would like to thank Nadi again for sending me these two boxes. My mouth had a very happy month in April!
Candy Adriatico ships every month on the 7th, and as I said before, they ship internationally. You can receive a month to month subscription, 3 months or 9 months. The cost of the box will vary due to the fluctuation of the euro. There are euro converters that are easy to find online so you can get an idea of what it will cost against your own country’s currency. You do get discounts if you go for a longer subscription.
Here are the prices:
1 month: 22.50 Euros, 3 months: 22 Euros per box, and at 9 months, it is 21 Euros. The candy envelope is 16.50 Euros.
