MunchPak boxes are so cute!  The little cartoon snacks and the airplane are just too fun.  The box is really heavy cardboard, which for a snacks subscription is great.  Getting smashed treats wouldn’t be fun!  They also send a little card with the name of the person that curated my MunchPak for me.

This box was choc full of snacks from all over the world.  They did not send an informational card with the box, but the snacks are quite easy to find on MunchPak’s website.

Haribo Gummy Berries – $3.00

These are so good!  Haribo makes the best gummy bears (in my opinion) and these were the best gummy candy I’ve had in a while!  I loved the outside coating on the berries that gave the gummies a bit of crunch, and then the inside was soft and flavorful.

Lotte Kancho – $2.00

I got these in my September Treats Box and I loved them!  They remind me of the little panda biscuits I used to buy a lot as a kid!

Wellmade Fruit Assorted Candies – Kiddie Mix – $2.00

I haven’t tried these yet because I’m not really a fan of hard candies.  I do keep hard candies in my purse to give to my friend’s children, so these will have me stocked up on candies for them for a while!

Burbon Petit Soft Chocolate Cookies – $3.00

When I pulled these out of the box I was so excited!  The little animal on the front looked like it was holding a fig and so I thought these were fig cookies.  *sad face*  They’re not…they’re chocolate filled cookies.  I will definitely enjoy these chocolate cookies though and go buy myself some Fig Newtons since my subconscious apparently wants some!

7Days Croissant Hazelnut – $3.00

A few years ago I went on a trip to France and stayed in a hotel that provided breakfast.  The breakfast spread was amazing:  crepe station, cheese galore, pastries, yogurt…anything you can think of that is quintessentially European for breakfast was there.  Me, being completely obsessed with pain au chocolat…that’s all I ate.  Now for the shameful part:  I would split them in half, warm them up and then add slices of brie inside.  Let me tell you…that was the HIGHEST calorie breakfast in the world (I will never say if I ate more than one a morning…) but it was delicious.  So, I said all of that to say that this croissant was not that.  What it WAS is a very good prepackaged item if you want a hazelnut croissant on the go and you don’t want to go to the coffee shop.  It doesn’t have the flaky layers but again, it’s a good prepackaged alternative.

Cheetos Horneados Bolitas – $3.00

The first time I ate a few of these, I thought they were flavorless.  The second time I ate some of these, I realized they are very good.  The first time was all my fault…I ate the Takis chips below and then ate these.  Big mistake.  The Takis are so insanely flavorful that these paled in comparison.  I would definitely buy these and eat them!  They are lightly spicy Cheetos puffs and they’re great!

Velikovi Salt Sticks with Olives – $1.00

These are basically just pretzels.  They have the tiniest flavor of something else added to them but would never have pinpointed it as olive.  They’re a bit saltier than regular pretzel sticks, so I think they would pair well with a creamy dip.  Hummus would be amazing!

Takis Cucumber and Habanero Tortilla Chips – $3.00

I mentioned this a little bit already but these chips are insanely flavorful.  This was my first time trying Takis and I might be hooked.  These were amazing.  I’ve never tried a chip this flavor, in fact, I’ve never seen a chip this flavor, but I will be tracking it down in no time flat.  These were hands down my favorite item in the box!

Lotte Happy Promise Choco Pie – $1.00

I received these in one of my last Treats shipments and they’re great!  I was happy to see one in my MunchPak and it will be eaten happily.

Umaibo Corn Potage – $1.00

I haven’t tried this yet; I am saving it for a friend who likes different snack foods.  MunchPak says that this snack is extremely popular in Japan and it is corn flavored.

The Verdict:  This Original MunchPak has a value of about $22.00.  The cost of the box is $19.95 so the value of the box exceeds the cost of the box by a few dollars.  I think that’s a great value for the different snacks that you get to try in the box.  There were snacks in this MunchPak from Japan, South Korea, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Mexico, and Bulgaria.  I would never be able to find an assortment of snacks from this many countries at any one grocery store around where I live.  The variety of sweet vs. savory was great; I loved the balance!  If you like trying snacks from around the world I would definitely recommend MunchPak.

What did you think of this month’s MunchPak?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. I received the corn flavored snack as well. (What is up with the tubular cheese puff-texture snacks?? such a strange idea yet so popular!)

    It tastes EXACTLY like sweet creamed corn. With just a liiiiittle hint of sour cream & onion flavor. I loved it, but my hubby thought it was disgusting lol.

  2. I paid for multiple customizations on my box and they were not honored. Most of my box was candy and sweets, both of which I asked be excluded. I also find the lack of product information to be a major drawback, especially when many of the products have, understandably, no English on their packages. I addressed these issues with customer service and have not received a reply. Subscription cancelled.
