Shipping is free but they currently only ship within the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Taste and Curiosity boxes I've tried (read all my reviews here) and the France box was no different! They always do a wonderful job of sending treats that I can't wait to devour. They also include a magnet with an inspirational quotation in each box to remind people to pursue their dreams!
The France box had six treats total and two of them were from one of my favorite brands, Michel et Augustin. The box was mostly sweet snacks, but I'm certainly not complaining about that!
- Nougat de Montelimar - This is a soft nougat bar with a mix of honey and almond. I haven't tried it yet but I love nougat inside of candy bars so I'm sure I'll enjoy this as well.
- Michel et Augustin Cookie Squares in Milk Chocolate and Melty Caramel - I first tried Michel et Augustin while I was in a Starbucks in New York City. My brother and I stopped in for a treat and I grabbed the lemon squares and they were fantastic. The Milk Chocolate and Melty Caramel cookies are even better! I wish there were more than just four in a package. They had a shortbread base with chocolate covering a caramel topping. I really could eat about a thousand of these!
- Michel et Augustin Rectangle Crackers - I didn't know Michel et Augustin made savory snacks, too, so I was really excited to try these. They were just as delicious as the cookies! They're little mini crackers with green olive and rosemary flavors. I love dipping fresh bread in rosemary and olive oil and these tasted just like that.
- St. Michel Madeleine - I had heard of Madeleines before but I had never tried one. To be honest, I thought they looked a little bland, but I was so wrong. This soft and moist sponge cake was so rich and delicious! The brand has been famous in France since 1905.
- Carambar - These candies are traditional chewy caramels that are hard at first but soften as you chew them. They became famous for the corny jokes on the insides of the wrappers. I haven't tried them yet but I love caramels and I will no doubt love these, too.
- St. Michel Sables - I normally don't like coconut, but these crispy coconut biscuits were light and had just enough flavor. They tasted great with my morning coffee.
- Magnet - This month's magnet says "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different," a quotation from Coco Chanel. She's certainly a great choice to represent the France box.
Bottom Line: I loved every single treat in the Taste and Curiosity France box! I wish I had more of everything. I'm definitely going to look into buying more Michel et Augustin and madeleines!
