This box came with a card signed by the person who packed my MunchPak (Thanks, Nick!) and info about how to win a FamilyPak (20+ items!)

There is no other info included in the box, so I hunted down each item on MunchPak’s store and will be using those as the values in this review.

Simsek Roxy Vanilla Wafers – Value $2.00

The first snack I opened was these vanilla wafers. And what a great way to start this month’s MunchPak! They are made in Turkey and filled with a rich vanilla cream. They have a similar crunch to vanilla wafers I buy at my local grocery store, but the overall taste is so much better. And I love that a full-size package was sent because I can’t stop eating them!

TresorDore Hazelnut Cream Crisp Malt Wafer, 1.77 oz. – Value $3

This package contains four pieces that are delicious! They have a crunchy hazelnut outer shell and layers of creamy chocolate and malt inside. The taste is really rich, but not overly sweet. These are made in the USA and this brand is familiar to me.

Morinaga Hi-Chew Sour Grapefruit, 1.16 oz. – Value $2 (buy a 20-pack for $18.35 on Amazon)

Also from the USA are these sour grapefruit chews. Each chew is about 1″ x 1/2″ and packs a lot of punch. I don’t love sour candy but didn’t find these overly sour, actually just the right amount of sweet and sour. The grapefruit flavor is excellent!

Starburst Superfruit Fruit Chews, 2.07 oz. – Value $2 (buy a 24-pack for $21.95 on Amazon)

This is the most recognizable brand to me in this month’s MunchPack. However, I’ve never tried the superfruit variety, which consists of raspberry pomegranate, strawberry starfruit, passionfruit punch, and blueberry acai – how fancy! Starbursts are one of my favorite candies and I enjoyed each of these flavors so much.

Pearson’s Bun Maple, 1.75 oz. – Value $3 (buy a 24-pack for $25.99 on Amazon)

This is really good and reminds me of a Snickers bar, with the chocolate, peanuts, and nougat. There’s also a soft maple cream on the bottom layer that mixes nicely with the rest of the bun. $3 seems a bit pricey for this snack, but it was fun to try this U.S. brand for the first time.

Meisan Grape Animal Gummy – Value $2

The last of the sweet snacks in this month’s MunchPak is a grape flavored gummy from Meisan, which is a Japanese brand. I love traditional gummy bears, and these had a similar consistency. However, there was something off about the grape flavor. I didn’t care for it overall, but not concerned since it’s a pretty small package.

Kolson Pizza Snackers – Value $1

Wow, these have so much savory flavor! Kolson is based in Pakistan and a prominent food brand. Aside from the strong pizza taste, these chex-style crackers are puffed and very crunchy. I enjoyed these.

Chillz Ketchup Potato Sticks – Value $1

These potato sticks are made by Pakistan-based Chillz and I found the flavor to be a nice balance of potato and salty ketchup. I wish the size of this snack was bigger, but it was a perfect snack-size to eat with a sandwich at lunchtime.

Crown Shin Zzang, 120 g. – Value $3

I can’t put my finger on what these remind me of, but MunchPak suggests churros. They are a nice balance of a crunchy wheat, sesame seeds, and sweet honey and cinnamon. Aside from the vanilla wafers, this was second largest bag and are my favorite snack this month.

Wai Wai Quick Hot & Spicy Ramen Noodles – Value $1

Last but not least is this Thai spicy shrimp ramen noodles. The package of ramen is similar to your traditional US brands, as far as size and noodle consistency. I do not care for super spicy foods and although good, this was way too spicy for me to enjoy. The flavor is salty like you would expect from ramen seasoning, but there’s also a nice lime kick throughout the heat.

Verdict: This was my first MunchPak experience and I’m really happy with this box. I received 10 snacks, with a MunchPak value of $20, even with the cost of the box. Aside from the grape gummies, I truly enjoyed each item and OK with the lower value this month. I was introduced to eight new brands from various countries and love the discovery aspect to this box.

  1. HI chew isn’t from the US by the way. It’s made in China. But is a Japanese company.

  2. Pearson’s… Minnesota proud!

    • Yes, hehe. That’s what I was thinking as I read that bit, Pearson’s being the most recognizable brand to me. 😉
