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. My box was packed by Albert (which is a little funny – as that is my husband’s name), and they included a little poem.
These are from Thailand. I always get excited when I see Pocky in my boxes! I’ve loved these little chocolate covered sticks forever, and I don’t foresee that changing any time soon! These were delicious (as are all varieties!) – creamy and chocolatey!
These are from South Korea, and there were four crackers in my box. This is probably one of the weirdest, yet most delicious things I’ve been exposed to in my short time of reviewing snack boxes. I can’t even think of anything these are similar to here in the States, but we’re missing out! It’s very light, but not fluffy – I neeeeeed the strawberry one!
This is from Italy. There’s no way to put this kindly – I couldn’t get it out of my mouth fast enough. I thought it was absolutely disgusting. The chocolate was waxy, and fake tasting. I hope I just got a bad one.
These are from the good ol’ US of A! These remind me of Nerds, but chewy. They’re good, but not my personal favorite. They’re very fruity!
These are from Japan. I was a little bummed that I received the grape flavor, since it’s not my favorite, but they’re delicious! I have seen Hi-Chew around for a while, and just never got around to trying them. I might have to pick up a few more flavors the next time I see them! They’re a little softer than Starburst, and the flavor really whacks you in the face.
This is from Thailand – it is essentially the Thai version of the sour strips you could get at the mall in the big bins at The Sweet Shoppe in the 90s and 2000s! It definitely tastes of watermelon, and watermelon (again) isn’t my flavor of choice – so I’ll pass the remainder of it along to a friend that will appreciate it in it’s entirety.
These are from Italy. Ok, I’m nervous to try these after how bad the candy bar from this brand was. Here goes nothing…yeah…they’re pretty dry and flavorless. Very crumbly, and the filling is not really creamy at all. They might go ok with some English Breakfast tea or something, but they’re definitely not the best.
These are from Thailand, and they’re delicious! They really do taste like pizza (lets be real though, nothing could ever take the place of pizza) and the crunch factor is nice!
These are from the Philippines. I was expecting these to be a bit savory, so I sat down with them to eat with my PB&J [I just started back to college, so I’m on a starving college student’s diet…JK I actually like kid food (none of you are surprised, are you?)] and a few puffs in, I decided I needed something a bit more savory with my sandwich. These are delicious, and they really do taste exactly like creamed corn, but they weren’t what I was expecting! If you love creamed corn, or sweet corn flavors, you will LOVE these.
These are from the Philippines as well. As soon as I opened the bag, the smell of garlic smacked me in the face. I love garlic more than is probably healthy for you, so these are absolutely a win for me. They’re probably most similar in texture to Corn Nuts, but SO much better – I can actually bite these without worrying about my teeth breaking in half. They have a Hot Garlic flavor that I would love to try next – I think I see a trip to my local Filipino market in my future!
Verdict: My MunchPak this month has about a $22.00 value. I think that’s pretty good for a snack box, and I enjoyed the vast majority of the items I was sent. The Boy Bawang snack is probably one that will work its way into my household many, many times. I really enjoy seeing the variety of countries that I get snacks from. I was in my World Market the other day noticing that they had quite a few of the European snacks that I get shipped, but not many of the Asian snacks – these boxes have opened me up to a whole new world, and I love that!
