Let’s take a look at what’s inside!
President’s Choice The Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookie (Buy a 350 g package for $3.90 from Canadian Favourites)
I was pleasantly surprised to see such a large package of cookies in this month’s box! I’ve been on a total cookie kick lately, so I’ve been pretty well-acquainted with all different varieties. Thank you, Get Canucked, for not messing around with the portions. This package came with 18 cookies total. These are absolutely packed with tons of small chocolate chips, so each bite is super sweet and chocolatey. The texture was somewhere between crunchy and chewy — heavier on the crunchy side. Big fan!
Nestle Coffee Crisp, 1 50 g and 5 fun size (Buy 50 g bar for $5.24 from Walmart)
These were awesome! I would describe them tasting like slightly more substantial Kit Kats if the bars were soaked in coffee. The wafer layers made for a crispiness, and the bars were overall not the cloyingly sweet flavor that I usually expect with super processed candy bars.
Cadbury Mr. Big, 60 g (Buy a pack of 4 60 g bars for $3.86 at Walmart)
Mr. Big is the largest sized candy bar produced by Cadbury in Canada, hence the name. Though large in size, this bar is pretty airy due to its rice crisp interior. It’s also made up of layers of vanilla wafer, caramel, and peanuts. I enjoy all of those things, so I was pretty into this bar (even if its name made me think of Sex and the City).
Reese Peanut Butter Oh Henry!, 58 g (Buy a case of 24 for $36.99 from Canadian Favourites)
This was a lot like a NutRageous bar, but add in some chewy fudge. With layers of crunchy peanuts, creamy caramel, fudge, and Reese peanut butter, it’s super rich and filling. If you love peanut butter flavor, you’ll be way into this bar.
Lay’s Ketchup, 40 g (Buy 40 bags for $32.98 from Canadian Favourties)
I’m not a huge fan of ketchup flavored chips after having tried them in previous Get Canucked boxes. Don’t get me wrong, these are tasty, but the ketchup flavor is so forward that I end up just feeling like I’m eating chips that are dipped in 1 lb of the sweet-meets-salty condiment.
Ruffles All Dressed, 40 g (buy a 220g/7.8oz bag for $4.99 from Amazon)
These are apparently a Canadian cult favorite, and I can see why. It’s tough to adequately express exactly what these taste like, but I’d say that their flavoring is classified somewhere between BBQ, paprika, sour cream and cheddar, and salt and vinegar.
Hostess Hickory Sticks, 2 47 g bags (Buy 60 packs for $69.60 from Amazon)
These stick snacks are like if ruffled potato chips broke apart into strips. Personally, I’d rather eat full chips than potato slivers, but the taste of these was spot-on. My husband particularly enjoyed them.
Vachon Granny’s Pecan Tartelettes, 2 tartelettes (Buy a pack of 16 for $19.95 from Amazon)
Now, on the flip side of the hickory sticks, these are a snack that my husband didn’t so much enjoy… but I certainly did. They definitely have that plastic-wrapped-dessert-from-a-7-Eleven feel, but I did find their pecan pie flavor to be pretty similar to what I crave right around the holidays. The crust was flaky and the filling was almost caramel-like. My husband found his tart to be way too sweet. I get it.
Christie Crispers, 70 g (Buy a 175 g bag for $4.19 from Canadian Favourites)
Verdict: This was my second Get Canucked box, and I enjoyed every item in this month’s shipment. Though the sweet probably outweighed the savory for me this go-around, I loved trying all kinds of new snacks that aren’t readily available in the states. The $35.00 box cost puts the value of items at around $2.50/snack, given that there were 14 in this box. This seems a bit high to me considering the types of items that this box has to offer. Having these items shipped, however, would exceptionally hike up value totals (especially since you’d have to purchase items individually), so I suppose that paying for the convenience of receiving such a variety at once is valuable. Overall, this is a great box for people who want to get their Canadian chip fix.
