*In collaboration with Taste of Finland.
While living abroad the best day of the week is always the one when you get some mail from your home country. It be might letters, postcards or little packages from friends and family. Last week, a bigger shipment arrived for us from Finland. It was a Squirrel Candy Box from Taste of Finland full of Finnish candies for us to try out. That was for sure the best day of the week!
The box contains a lot of Finnish chocolate and some candy bars. We also got the Finnish speciality: salty black liquorice. I was a little surprised that our 5 year old who hasn't eaten it a lot before liked it. I guess it must run in the genes. My favorite is absolutely all the chocolate candies, while my husband went for the fruit candies.
TASTE OF FINLAND
Taste of Finland is a Finnish company which was established in 2017. It is easy to order Finnish products through them, for yourself or as a gift. Not all of the products are candies. They also carry cloudberry jam, rye chips, tea, coffee, Finnish mustard, Xylitol products and some other Finnish delicacies. Everything, even the shipping boxes, are made in Finland. The products can be shipped to Europe, North America, Australia and some Asian countries (see the full list here).
Among the ready boxes, you can now also order individual products and create your own box. With the sweets and savory things, Taste of Finland now also has some Moomin products like cups and bowls. I have sometimes given those as a gift to someone, and we also use them almost every day. There are five different gift boxes to choose from: Squirrel, Rabbit, Bunny, Bear and Fox. Adorable!
