The Box:

The design of the box is specific to Vancouver with its blue design. It comes fairly medium sized and the products are neatly packed. This box was sent to me for review purposes.

The Products:

Hooray Truffles

Our Dark and Intense Truffle is our original and most popular variation. It is our simple, naked, unadulterated winning ganache, hand dipped in 75% dark couverture, showcasing the deep, rich undertones and the perfect bite of our fairtrade, organic, Peruvian couverture.

These truffles are simply to die for. They are vegan, organic and soy free, and you know you’re eating healthy because yes, its DARK chocolate! My boyfriend and I finished these up in one sitting (each box comes with 4 truffles). I was also amazed that one of the boxes was infused with essential oils- I didn’t even know this was possible and it tasted amazing. The fruitiness was not too intense at all; it brought the perfect flavor to the creamy and smooth chocolate.

Just Candles Co Luscious and Suit & Tie

This won’t last long!! This is our women’s scent. Luscious is a beautiful white candle. Notes of Pear, Vanilla and Musk – this will make you feel like you are having a day at the Spa!

This candle reminded me of spring time- it smelled like sweet flowers  and just made me feel all-around calm. I love that the wax from these candles can also be used as massage oil- so its almost like you’re getting a dual purpose in one.

Our men’s Valentine’s candle is oh so sexy!! A Scarlett red colour with notes of Black Pepper, Leather and Musk.

I LOVE this scent. The candle came in a cute little tin, and the scent basically reminded me of a man. It smells like a men’s cologne with a gorgeous hint of musk and leather.

The Result

This was my first time receiving the Vancity Box and I definitely enjoyed the promise of hand crafted, locally made goods. I am completely passionate about supporting small businesses and I love receiving a Canadian box with amazing homemade goodies; it makes me proud to be Canadian! I love candles almost too much, so boxes can never go wrong sending candles to subscribers. Chocolate is almost always a must in a subscription box, especially organic, vegan, and locally made chocolate (AKA healthy chocolate)! I would have liked to see more items in this box for its price of $49.95, but I was still very pleased with the quality of the items.
