This month’s theme was snacks you can eat at the park!
These taste a bit like BBQ chips to me. I don’t really get a Cajun vibe from them, until the aftertaste. The ‘craw’ part of this made me think they would be craw-fish, which made me a bit squeamish, but they were good!
Salt and Vinegar PopChips – $2.35
These are delicious – I’ve actually purchased these in the past for myself! I love salt and vinegar chips, and I love PopChips – so these are a win for me!
Richy Egg Butter Waffles – $0.50?
These were really good! They were just crisp waffles that taste slightly of coconut. I really enjoyed these, and think these would be the perfect thing to take the edge off a sweet tooth with some hot tea!
These were really good. These are crisp cookies – no soft chocolate chip cookies here. They were very flavorful and I think these would be perfect for throwing in a lunchbox as a snack!
77 Green Tea Wafer – White Chocolate – $0.50?
This was pretty tasteless to me. I’m not trying to be mean, but it kind of tasted like I was eating yogurt covered sawdust. Maybe I just got a bad one?
This was pretty good. It’s a chocolate cake cookie with white chocolate frosting chunks baked inside. I enjoyed this one!
Pepitoria De Cacahuate Peanut Butter Candy Bar – $0.50?
I actually found a warning from the FDA regarding Aflatoxin in this specific type of candy bar from Mexico. I’m going to stay on the safe side, and just not eat this one. I’m sure it’s fine, but I’d rather operate under an abundance of caution since I’ve had so many health issues lately!
Verdict: This Something Snacks box has a value of about $8.44. Even if you sign up for a longer subscription, you’re paying about $12.00 to the US…I think it would be nice for the value on this box to come up a bit. It’s a fun box to get, since there’s generally a nice mix of sweet and savory, but having a consistently low value will not set well with subscribers after a while. Hopefully they can figure something out! I was also a bit disappointed in a few of the snacks this month (the green tea wafer, and the Pepitoria De Cacahuate), so maybe I’m just being too harsh about the value…
