Subscription Box Review

My first glimpse inside the My Russia Box for the month. This is such a bright and colorful box – I couldn’t wait to see what was inside.

Everything that came in the My Russia Box for this month. What a cool – and varied collection of items.


So what is all this stuff? 

My box insert does not list the items in the box but the items are listed on the Russia Box’s website.


The first item in my box is a microwave dinner! This “Dinner Express” Buckwheat and Mushroom dish is prepared a bit like Ben’s Ready Rice. You just steam it in the microwave. Penny (my 14 year old) ate this for breakfast (yes I live in the Matrix). She said it was tasty so this was a real winner!

Here are the nutrition facts from the package.


Next up in my box is this package of 33 Cows cookies. These came in assorted flavors in boxes for the month but I received vanilla. These are a delicious, buttery shortbread and the cow is stamped on them as well. I shared these with the kids but easily could have eaten the entire package.

And of course the cookie nutrition facts.


Next up in my package is this large package of tea. The flavor is “Splashes of Champagne” which sounds absolutely delightful. This is a two and half ounce bag with a blend of black and green tea with dried strawberries as well as strawberry flavor.


Then there’s the Spartak White Chocolate Bar. This candy hails from Belarus and is creamy and milky flavored.

I shared this with the kids as well!


Then there are the Roshen Milk Butter candies. There were a total of ten of these included. These taste a lot like a Wether’s Original and I have eaten them all already – no shame in my game!


Then there are these three apricot filled chocolate. This was definitely the most unique snack that was included in this package. Penny really loves apricots and enjoyed this snack!

What an interesting flavor!


Also included in my box are two Ukrainian Roshen Milk Chocolate Bars. These looked very decadent, I was excited.

Inside these are filled with caramel. The candy I’d say these are most like are Caramellos.


Then there are these 9 Barbaris hard candies. These are fruity and good – kind of like those little strawberry candies. These come from Belarus


There were also nine of these gummy candies included. These had a very unique flavor, it was a bit like honey.


The final snack in my box for the month is my FAVORITE! These are Joizy, a chewy Ukrainian candy in different fruity flavors.

Each one was white on the inside.


The final item in my box for the month is my souvenir. This is my tea service themed decorative magnet. There was a blue and white alternative available as well. This is super pretty!


So in summary

Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me perfectly in my box from The Russia Box

Quality: This box does exactly what it sets out to do – deliver authentic Eastern European snacks and cultural items right to your door each month

Curation: I really liked the assortment and I love that they included the microwave dinner as well. What an interesting inclusion.
