I’m kind of obsessed with international candy and snack subscription boxes lately. Ever since a friend sent me ah-freaking-mazing candy from Switzerland years ago, I’ve been convinced that the rest of the world has far better junk food than we do!

Back then, though, we didn’t have all of the nifty subscription boxes that we have today, so I never really had a chance to test that theory. It’s definitely on my to-do list this year, and I know just which boxes I’ll start with. Check them out below! I even included unboxing or review videos when I could find them.

Japan Crate (Japanese Candy & Snacks)

Japan Crate

I know, I mention this one A LOT, but it’s probably my all-time favorite international candy box ever. I lived in Japan for two years back in 1999-2001 and I still miss all the yummy snacks and candy. The stuff we have in stores here just isn’t the same because of how its imported (exposed to extreme temps, frozen, thawed, sits for ages, etc).

Japan Crate actually ships directly to you from Japan, so you’re not getting stuff that’s been sitting around in some warehouse for months on end. Everything tastes exactly how I remember it!

I found this great unboxing review of the January 2022 box on YouTube, check it out:

  • What you get in each box: Depends on the box size. The Original box comes with 10 items, including at least one DIY kit.
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Cost: $33.45+
  • Options (Sizes): Original (10 items) & Premium (full-size candy plus other fun Japanese items). They also have a few other boxes, including one with noodles, one with Japanese stationary, and one with  gachapon capsule toys.

2. MexiCrate

MexiCrate

MexiCrate is one of the most popular Mexican candy/snack boxes on CrateJoy. In fact, it’s so popular that it usually has a “low stock” warning. So if you’re thinking about trying it, I’d grab it asap. Given the sheer number of positive reviews (4.5 stars total with 340+ ratings), I think it’s a pretty sure bet that you’ll love it.

It comes in three sizes, but the Mediana is the most popular. At just around $18 for a jam-packed box (figuratively, not literal jam), it’s surprisingly affordable, too! Check out the video below from the brand itself for more info:

  • What you get in each box: 15-25 Mexican candies and snacks.
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Cost: $17.99+ for Mediana (average) box, but they have a smaller option for $7.99+ and a larger one for $26.39+

3. Bokksu Box (Japanese Snacks)

bokksu japanese subscription box

I know I already recommended a Japanese candy box, but I feel like this list wouldn’t be complete without Bokksu. It’s high on my wish list, especially after hearing friends rave about it.

Like Japan Crate, it features unique snacks and treats from the Land of the Rising Sun, many of which come from small businesses that have been around for centuries. It costs a bit more than Japan Crate but it also comes with more stuff in each box.

Your first box celebrates the Seasons of Japan and you can actually see pretty much everything that’s in it on Amazon. After that, you’ll get the same box as other members centered around a specific theme.

I really like this review from YouTube, it gives you a good overview of the first box:

  • What you get in each box: 20-25 “premium Japanese snacks.”
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Cost: $49.95
  • Options (Sizes): Only one.
Bokksu - Authentic Japanese Snack & Candy Subscription: Classic Box
  • DISCOVER JAPAN THROUGH SNACKS! Every month receive a curated box of high-quality authentic Japanese snacks. We curate each box around unique themes of Japanese culture, festivals, flavors, and cities to help Members discover Japan with each box.

  • PARTNERING DIRECTLY WITH MAKERS: Every box sold helps the family-run Japanese snack makers we work with thrive and grow! We partner with a variety of makers across Japan to bring you regional snacks and flavors, and create new Bokksu-exclusive snacks.
  • IN-BOX GUIDE: A Culture Guide is included in every box that details each product's origin story, flavor profile, common allergens, and if it's vegetarian-friendly. Plus special content every month on Japanese culture, travel, language, or our snack makers!
  • RELIABLE SHIPPING: Your box is shipped directly from Japan with free shipping and tracking included so you’ll know where your Japanese snack box is on its journey to you!

4. The Premium Pack by Treats (General International Candy)

Treats

If you’d rather try a variety of different international candies throughout the year rather than just from one country every month, The Premium Pack is a good way to go. Each month focuses on a different country and includes at least 10 snacks from that destination. It’s basically like a passport for an “Around the World in 12 months” snacking adventure.

  • What you get in each box: 10+ snacks and candies from the featured country, plus postcards and other small items.
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Cost: $25.95+

7. IndiFix – A Monthly Box of Indian Snacks & Treats

IndiFix - A Monthly Box of Indian Snacks & Treats

IndiFix claims that they’re the only Indian snack subscription, and from what I could find they’re right. Each box features an outstanding selection of everything from candy to cookies and even soda, all straight from India.

Everything in the box is 100% vegetarian, too! Even better, your purchase give back. For every box sold, they donate at least one meal to an Indian child in need. Check out the unboxing vid below for a closer look.

8. Canadian Snacks Subscription

Canadian snacks / Food Box

I was on the fence about including Canada because they’re not really what I think of when someone says “international.” Then again, I live in PA, so I could actually drive to Canada faster than I could to, say, North Carolina. But since I included Mexico, and since some of you live MUCH farther from the border,

If you’ve never tried Canadian candy, you definitely want to check this one out. I have friends who’ve sent me quite a few goodies over the years. My favorites are Smarties! They’re nothing like our version. These are more like M&Ms, but tastier (and that’s saying something because I do love M&Ms).

  • What you get in each box: 10+ items, including candy, chips, and other yummy Canadian treats.
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Cost: $29+
  • Options (Sizes): Just one

9. Turkish Munchies Maxi International Snack Box (Turkish Treats)

kiwigrub subscription box

This one is actually just a one-time box versus a monthly subscription, but it still deserves a mention here. I have some gift card money left from Christmas, so I’m thinking about grabbing a box. It has pretty good reviews!

Each box comes with 21 different full-sized premium candies and snacks from Turkey, all of which meet strict European standards for food. I like that you can actually see what you get in the box, but that could be a drawback if you prefer surprises.

  • What you get in each box: 21+ full-sized items
  • Frequency: One time
  • Cost: $28.95
  • Options (Sizes): Just the one on this listing, but they have a ton of others in their Amazon store.
Maxi International Snack Box | Premium and Exotic Foreign Snacks | Unique Snack Food Gifts Included | Try Extraordinary Turkish Gourmet Snacks | Dark Space Themed Box | Candies from Around the World | 21 Full-Size Snacks
  • ❗WARNING ABOUT EXPIRATION DATES: Turkey uses DAY-MONTH-YEAR expiration date format. So, MONTH and DAY digits are replaced compared to the US. To avoid misunderstandings, we apply additional US-format expiration date label over snacks (MONTH-YEAR format). If you see an original Turkish expiration label of 01.07.2022, it means 1 July 2022 and not 7 January 2022.
  • 🍪7-DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: We not only guarantee your satisfaction but also guarantee that you will receive a full refund within 7 days of purchase if you do not like our snacks. No questions asked. Just drop a message via Amazon messaging and your refund will be initiated (The policy applies for the first order and first box only).

All products go through quality tests as per European Regulations. Cherry picked for your taste buds. Nothing mediocre can get into our international snacks box! The product is not a manufacturer-created variety pack and will not be sent in the original manufacturer's packaging.
  • 🍪ALWAYS FRESH. It is known that many international foods end up before the end consumer just before their shelf life expires. This is not the case for us! Our snack variety boxes always come fresh from monthly replenished Amazon stocks. We strive to keep our stocks as fresh as possible by frequent imports.
  • 🍪GOOD CHOICE FOR FOREIGN / INTERNATIONAL SNACKS. Turkish treats are very famous in Europe and you will have the opportunity to taste them here in US at your dorm room, office, school or college. You will never be served one-bite small treats in this box! Great choice that works for all!

10. Bulgarian Treats Subscription Box

Bulgarian Treats

I was on the fence about including this one, too, because it doesn’t have any reviews yet. However, it’s affordable enough that I think it’s worth taking a chance on. Everyone needs to start somewhere, right? Plus, it’s pretty unique!

Each box comes with 10-12 different snacks, sweets, candies, cookies, biscuits, and such from Bulgaria (but it ships from the UK). If you subscribe for 6 months, they also throw in a mystery bonus. That said, given their “newness” and lack of reviews so far, I’d recommend just trying out one month first to make sure you like it.

  • What you get in each box: 10-12 Bulgarian treats
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Cost: $25+
  • Options (Sizes): 2, but one is a beauty box, so really only one.
10 International Candy & Snack Subscription Boxes You Need to Try

As you can see, I stuck to subscriptions that are mostly filled with candy and snacks. If you want to expand into entire meals, there are a TON of different boxes you can try for that, too. CrateJoy has a whole category for international flavors.

Oh, and don’t forget to look for coupon codes above the “subscribe now” buttons on each listing. You can usually find some good deals to get your first box at a deeply discounted rate.
