Who doesn’t love trying international candy? I was lucky enough to discover one of the very best international monthly subscription boxes for candy, and the service goes by the name of Bocandy. I decided to give this box a try because it promises a nice variety of candy from around the globe.
The first thing that I noticed about the box when it arrived was how great the packaging design was. It was a simple design that fit perfect with the candy selection inside of it. I couldn’t help but try a little of everything and there wasn’t a single item in the box that didn’t taste amazing. There is clearly a lot of thought that goes into the candy selection for each box.
Something else that was really nice about this box was that it had a few bigger candies inside of it, but there were a ton of little pieces of candy in the box too. That means you get to share some of the international sweets that come in your box (if you want to). The whole idea for this box is brilliant and well thought out. Bocandy is a brilliant subscription box that lives up to it’s promises. For more information or to subscribe, check out their website at www.Bocandy.com.
Most subscription boxes contain food or snacks delivered to you once a month. We found a really unique box that provides you with handy tools to help you around the house and with projects. The Handy Box is a very cool idea, it’s a box sent to you once a month containing tools and products that can help you around your home.
In The Handy Box that we received that were some really awesome and practical items. The furniture markers are something that we use frequently and run out of all the time, so to get some of those was a relief. One of the coolest items in the box was the 3x magnifier with 12 LED’s. It’s basically a large magnifying glass with built in lights to help you see in dark situations.
As far as the value, this box will give you more value than the price tag for the subscription. This is a box that I could see subscribing to for a father or grandfather as a gift, but also a box that can be used by literally anyone because there are times in all of our lives when we need tools to make things easier.
This is a one of a kind subscription box that exceeded my personal expectations. I’ve tried to guess at what is inside of a box before for food subscription boxes, and that can sometimes be easy based on the regular content that is sent out in the boxes, but there is no way for me to even begin guessing with this box. It’s sure to be a surprise every time!

Mixes are not that uncommon anymore, with the internet being a conduit for artist and DJ’s alike to celebrate their creative freedom. One mix in particular is making a scene on Vimeo and has already been chosen as a Staff Pick. This mix celebrates over 50 years of the cassette tape by combining classic music with some of the top hits of today’s time. It’s a brilliant combination that we think you will agree, works very well together.
The artist who were featured in this mix were talented, but think about it, the person or people behind making the mix have to be talented as well. To take songs that don’t sound like they would go together well and put them into one song and have it sound fantastic takes a lot of skill! So go ahead and enjoy one of the coolest mixes on the internet!
