Ozzies Abroad Opinion

Well, you know we are all about bragging rights. We believe this product can give us bragging rights in front of our friends overseas. Down Under Box great is for showing off some Australiana because the products come very well presented. It’s perfect as a gift to your friends or in a corporate setting. The only thing is a bit of a small selection of products but they have the main ones. We checked out other companies and Down Under Box is actually good value. The other companies charge more for products and shipping and prices are in USD. The other companies don’t present products nicely so Down Under Box is the winner in the gift and value department. So we reckon its pretty good.

  1. What a great idea! We visited New Zealand 14 years ago for a wedding. It was there that I was introduced to TimTams! On my word – so delicious. It’s not even an experience you can describe. Do you also bite the corner off each TimTam and suck your coffee through it? Sigh – I could eat a whole packet right now!
    Can you believe I actually saw TimTams in our grocery store here in Zimbabwe Victoria Falls?? Who would have thought that possible? They are pricey and it’s the small package. Even still – I did get one – just to remember my holiday.
    I’m sure this kind of box would do the same for anyone far from home with a bit of nostalgia. Or up for a new experience. I was surprised they don’t have Arnott’s biscuits. They were fantastic too! Great review of this unique food box.

    1. Thanks For your comment all the way from Zim. Yes, Tim Tams are awesome and one of the number 1 things Aussies abroad miss. And yes, we bite the corners off and such coffee through them 🙂 

  2. It is ironic that I ran across your review, Now I am gonna have to try this out on my next paycheck! Although maybe I shouldn’t base my opinion off of some treats on whether or not I am gonna continue researching on moving to Australia, I wanna try these out!

    Do they have a price converter to see how much AUD equates to in USD?

    1. Hi Chris, if you try these treats you will move to Oz, for sure. It’s about $45 USD and they can get it to you within 5-14 days.
