I've tried other snack boxes on the market, should I expect the same from The Russia Box?

Be prepared for a new kind of an experience!  A lot of international snack boxes around are made or sponsored by American corporate companies for American consumers using foods mass produced in other countries or made in the US.  As the result, authenticity is often obscured by quantity or packaging. The Russia Box is the real deal!  It is a small business, not backed by corporate sponsors or companies.  We use small business imports within the Russian and Eastern European communities, and support folk artists in Russia and Eastern Europe by importing traditional and genuine folk art pieces.  We create an authentic experience and curate a unique offering.  

What if I have food allergies?

The items included in this box or package may contain or have come into contact with WHEAT, EGGS, PEANUTS, TREE NUTS, MILK, SOY, SHELLFISH and other allergens.  We do not accept any responsibility for any allergic reactions you might have. If you have food allergies, please take the necessary precautions.  

The date on my snack has past, has it expired?

Russian/Eastern European labeling often shows the date of creation of the product, not the expiration date.  The expiration date will depend on the product and is not always listed by date. The date may be date/month/year or month/date/year.  If you have any questions, please refer to the information sheet sent with your package or box, or please contact us.

Can I return or exchange my box?

Due to the perishable nature of our subscription boxes and packs, we cannot accept returns or exchanges.  Once you make a payment for your subscription or prepaid plan, it is non-refundable and the contents of the boxes are non-exchangeable.  We make every effort to check all the items in your box for quality before your box is sent out.  However, if you receive any damaged items, please contact us and we will make it right by you.  Please be prepared to send us pictures of the damage.

Will my box renew automatically?

Your monthly subscription will renew every month until you cancel before the 29th of the month.  Your 3 month or 6 months prepaid plan will renew every 3 or 6 months until you cancel before the 29th of the month.  It is your responsibility to cancel the subscription before the renewal date.  We reserve the right to cancel the subscription at any time.  For any questions, please contact us and we will be glad to assist you.
