Here's the Box Breakdown
first look in the latino box
Our first glimpse inside the Latino Box. This Box is so colorful... LOVE!


what's in the latino box
Everything that we received in the October Latino Box. This is probably the most amazing variety of colors ever! We love how these different candies and sweets are from all over Latin America, not just one region!

So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert that detailed each item in the original box

Our word list for the month, the reverse has a word search!

And a fun (and disco-esque) Latino Box sticker


These Columbian plantain chips are extra crunchy and addictive! We bet you can't eat just one! These are the salty variety (we like both but prefer the sweet). Yummy!


We didn't know quite what these were when we first unboxed them but they just happen to be traditional Argentinian sweet biscuits

These are DELICIOUS! They have a deep molasses like sweetness and it's suggested on our box insert to pare them with an yerba mate


Triple layers wafer cookies from Brazil you say? LET US AT THEM! This was a large package... almost 6 ounces. Definitely enough wafers to go around!


"Snappy and Delicious" pineapple soda. This soda was founded in 1905 and is from Cuba. We shared this with Mr. I'm Not a Tree (the big soda drinker in our house) who thoroughly enjoyed it!


We've seen these before but had never tried them. These are mango flavored lollipops covered in chili. So will they be sweet? Will they be spicy? We had no idea!

This is what happens anytime we're eating... notice we are in a corner where this child has backed us into! But about the lollipop... it's immediately salty followed by sweet. The ONLY thing we've ever tried that tastes even remotely like this is pickled mangoes which our stepmother covers in salt.... and it's still not quite the same!


We LOVE toffee so we tried one of these right away and then shared with the kids. These are made with real fresh milk and then flavored with pecan! They are chewy and so scrumptious!


This package is everything! We can look at this package and assume this is a wafer cookie but honestly it's so much more!

This Peruvian wafer is covered in chocolate and filled with vanilla cream and is absolutely decaden! 


We haven't had a chance to try this yet but it definitely sounds like it's going to be tasty. Nougat paste and peanut filled wafer! This cookie is also from Argentina


These sandwich cookies hail from Peru and are filled with Lucuma cream. Lucuma is a subtropical fruit that grows in the Andean Valleys. We had never heard of it before - knowledge baby!

So very yummy! We ate them all, they just might be our box favorite!


From Puerto Rico! These yummy little candies are chewy and sweet with a mashup of pineapple and coconut flavor. 

These remind us of a lot of the raw snacks we've tried in the past! 


These are like fruit filled cookie bars... the kids delighted in them! We aren't sure if there are other flavors out there but we received strawberry

They kind of look a bit like a hot dog.. but definitely much sweeter!


This Columbian caramel spread is great on toast and straight from the container! Ours got knocked open in transit but from the looks of it, it tastes good!


Coated in Chili and sugar these taste sort of... like a fruit roll up and are not a hard candy like you think when you first see it.


This chocolate coated sandwich cookie is FILLED with dulce de leche. It seems like the Argentinian snacks tend to be more milky and rich while the snacks from Mexico are fruity and bright! Interesting to us!


Made simply from 100% Venezuelan Cacao.

And absolutely phenomenal!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Latino Box is an amazing assortment of items. If you're looking for a taste of home this box is great because they pull a lot of items from a number of places but it's also great if you want to try new things because there's an amazing variety! The presentation is so good - this box is so colorful and you know we are suckers for that stuff! Quality is awesome. And curation is astounding there is simply SO MUCH in this box! We love it! 

Don't forget use code LATINOBOX10 for 10% OFF (good for either box) your box or ASHELI for $5 OFF (original box only)
