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 month it was Nick.
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. On to the snacks themselves!
These fun little candies are made in Spain. They are gummy candy swirled with creamy and fruity flavors.
This cookie is from Guatemala. The main part of the cookie is described as shortbread, and the inside is a fruit jam. These were unlike the shortbread I am used to – similar only in that they’re both very dry cookies. I wouldn’t reach for this snack regularly – if at all. It wasn’t my favorite!
These chips are from Mexico. They are shaped a bit like fusilli pasta and the texture is very similar to the cinnamon twists that Taco Bell serves – they’re very airy. The flavor was decent, but I didn’t taste chili in them at all, they just taste like cheese!
These crisps are from Ireland. I loved the flavor! A bit like sour cream and onion chips, but just different enough to appreciate the cheese flavor thrown in!
These are from Greece. I have received a 7 Days product in every MunchPak I’ve gotten so far. These would be wonderful with spinach dip, in my humble opinion – they’re a bit like bagel crisps.
Lindt was the first ‘good’ chocolate I tried growing up. When you are raised on Hershey’s chocolate, you develop an appreciation for other chocolate quickly! I was lucky enough to be in Germany last week, and I got to tour the Lindt chocolate museum in Cologne. It was so interesting to see all of the work that goes into making these chocolates. I am always a fan of their truffles, so these were an excellent addition for my box!
This candy bar is from Guatemala. It has layers of cookie and layers of chocolate. The closest thing I can compare this to is a KitKat bar, but it’s not quite the same!
These little chocolate cookies are from Japan. They were quite good, but maybe a little stale tasting. The flavor though was excellent – they reminded me of Cocoa Pebbles!
These are also from Japan. The outside biscuit is chocolate while the filling inside can be chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla. The flavor of these is great, and I would definitely purchase these to snack on when I’m craving crunchy chocolate!
Chocolate Ice Cream Treat – $1.00?
I couldn’t find this treat on the MunchPak website, partially because I can’t read the outer packaging at all! It was a small ice cream cone, with chocolate ganache inside and it was delicious! If I had to guess, I would say this was a Japanese treat.
The MunchPak website doesn’t specify a location for this one, but the packaging says “From Belgium.” This was a fun addition since when we were in Belgium on our trip, I bought 3 huge Vital nougats to bring home! I had not tried nougat before our trip, but I am a huge fan! This one has little papaya and pistachio pieces in it – and it’s delicious!
The verdict: This MunchPak has an approximate value of $23.00, which is spot on the price for this subscription. Since the items in each box can vary, the value fluctuations person to person a bit. This was a good box for me, and I enjoyed the variation of sweet and salty. It was really fun to see products that I saw on vacation in my box! The one thing that I think would be helpful for this subscription is an information card with the products listed, but I do understand how difficult that could get with all the product variations. With that said, I love my MunchPak shipments!
