This card describes the products in your box, along with the theme. The theme this month is Chuseok, which is sometimes compared to Thanksgiving per the information card that was included.
Now let’s take a look at what’s inside!
Pepero Nude Chocolate Box – Value: $3.95
These are cookie sticks filled with sweet chocolate, similar to what you’d find here in the US, but the stick is just a little thinner than I’ve had in the past. Overall, these are extremely delicious and a pretty good deal – I received 12 sticks in my box but I could definitely use more! I personally like to eat things like this with tea or hot chocolate – so I think I may order more of these in the future!
Bungeoppang Cake, 1 piece – Value: $1.87? (buy a pack of 8 for $14.95)
This cute fish-shaped cake is very moist and is filled with rich chocolate, what more could I ask for! The chocolate isn’t overly sweet, nor is the cake mix, so this is a great treat that doesn’t leave me feeling too high of a sugar rush. I can see myself sipping tea and eating these with friends – great product and I definitely recommend if you like sponge cake and chocolate!
Mychew Candy, 3 pieces – Value: $1?
This candy wasn’t available in their store, so my value is an estimate.
I received 3 pieces of this hard chewy candy, which is similar to Laffy Taff that you’d find here in the US. The flavors received were: Apple, Strawberry, and Melon, and all were pretty delicious and VERY flavorful. I usually try to stay away from sticky candy such as this, but these were too good to not eat all 3!
Mon Cher Cacao Cake, 1 piece – Value: $1.41 (buy a pack of 12 for $16.95)
This chocolate cake isn’t overly sweet and the chocolate melts in your mouth – it’s so good!
The cake is filled with cream, which was a nice surprise and a big hit! I read a review to heat this up in the microwave and I’m glad I did – It was extremely soft and even more delicious! This one was a hit for me and I can see myself buying more of these in the future.
Jagabee Chips, 1 bag – Value: $2?
This product wasn’t available on their site, so my guess is an estimate.
These potato chips are in the shape of french fry’s and are super delicious! They’re much thicker compared to a regular potato chip; they aren’t overly salty and they pack quite a crunch! These are pretty unique and I could definitely eat more – another win!
Subakba Watermelon Jelly Bag – Value $5.95
I love sugar candy and most things watermelon flavored, so I was pretty excited when I opened these up! The jelly is very soft, which is nothing like I’ve had before and the flavoring is perfectly sweet and not sour, which I really liked! I do believe that $5.95 is a little pricey for just one bag, but I’ve never had anything like this before, so it’s worth the price to me.
Verdict: This was my first experience with Korean Snacks Box and I’m pretty impressed with the variety of snacks included and how delicious all of them were! I received 6 snacks in this $14.95 box, so each item comes to about $2.49. I think this price is extremely fair because all snacks were a hit with my palate I want more!
