There is always a card included in the box that lets you know who personally packed your box for you. I love the personalization!

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Bugtape Gum MunchPak Box January 2018 - Bugtape Gum Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Bugtape Gum Open

Gummy Bug Tape Roll Can, 1.27 oz. – Retail Value $3.00

My son thought this was the funniest little snack once he realized it wasn’t real! The gum itself has a tart lemonade flavor to it and has the texture of a fruit roll-up, just slightly thicker. The bugs are strawberry flavored so you get to enjoy a strawberry lemonade, with a side of bugs! This was a very fun and super silly snack to enjoy with my son.

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Fini Mini Kollisions MunchPak Box January 2018 - Fini Mini Kollisions Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Fini Mini Kollisions Open

Fini Mini Kollisions, 2.5 oz. – Retail Value $2.00 (currently out of stock)

These bright candies are sweet and sour licorice. Each little piece is extra chewy and bold. I absolutely loved the cool shapes and bright colors made snacking so much fun. The bites are much more sweet than sour and had that yummy sugar flavor that lingered after every piece.

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Green Tea MunchPak Box January 2018 - Green Tea Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Green Tea Open

Old Fashion Green Tea, 10 bags – Retail Value $5.00

I love green tea so this was a nice surprise! Most of my boxes come with a beverage in it so maybe this is my beverage for the month? Green tea is delicious and it is great for you. I love having a cup of tea in the afternoon instead of resorting to drinking more coffee. With 10 bags in this box, this is plenty for me! 

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Lotte Koala's March MunchPak Box January 2018 - Lotte Koala's March Open

Lotte Koala’s March Chocolate Banana Flavor, 1.45 oz. – Retail Value $2.00 (currently out of stock)

These cookies really take me back! I remember when Koala cookies were popular when I was younger, but my Mom never let us buy them. Probably too much sugar! Now I will eat a whole box of these in minutes if I get them in a snack box. The cookie is filled a chocolate banana flavor that really has a strong banana taste to it, so yummy. The cookie itself is sweet like vanilla and has a nice crunch.

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Mentos MunchPak Box January 2018 - Mentos Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Mentos Open

Mentos Popins Fruit Flavor, 1.76 oz. – Retail Value $3.00

This was an interesting snack. I didn’t realize Mentos made fruit flavors! I popped one in thinking it would be chewy like an original Mentos, but instead it was sort of hard. More of a hard candy that you savor. I didn’t get a huge fruit flavor with just one, but after a few, I could taste a light fruit sweetness. Not my favorite candy, but they were sweet and so bright!

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Milka Chips Ahoy MunchPak Box January 2018 - Milka Chips Ahoy Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Milka Chips Ahoy Open

Milka Chips Ahoy Chocolate Bar, 100 g – Retail Value $3.00 (currently out of stock)

OMG, I can’t handle this chocolate bar! I love Milka because their chocolate is so rich and creamy, it seriously melts in your mouth. Inside this bar is a Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookie. The cookie is so creamy combined with that extra layer of chocolate for added sweetness. I gave my son a piece which was a bad idea because he kept asking for more!   

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Nestle Nesquik Wafer MunchPak Box January 2018 - Nestle Nesquik Wafer Open

Nestle Nesquik Wafer, 100 g – Retail Value $1.00 (currently out of stock)

I haven’t had Nesquik in forever! The outer chocolate layer is a Nestle Nesquik chocolate which is so sweet and creamy. The wafer adds a lovely crunch and tastes like vanilla. The perfect combination! MunchPak notes that this would be great to eat while you are drinking a Nesquik, chocolate overload!    

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Pac-Man Milk Chocolate Cream Sticks MunchPak Box January 2018 - Pac-Man Milk Chocolate Cream Sticks Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Pac-Man Milk Chocolate Cream Sticks Open

Pac-Man Milk Chocolate Cream Sticks, 1.27 oz. – Retail Value $3.00

I love the Pac-Man themed box for this little snack! It is very cute and has a retro feel to it. The snacks themselves are similar to Pocky, a sweet biscuit coated in chocolate. The chocolate was very sweet mixed with the nice crunch from the biscuit. This is a great snack to eat with a cup of coffee for a quick sugar rush!

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Puchao MunchPak Box January 2018 - Puchao Open

UHA Mikakuto Puchao Strawberry, 1.76 oz. – Retail Value $3.00

These little gummies are my favorite, the packaging is cute, but the gummy is also really pretty! I have had a few different flavors from this brand, but this month we have strawberry. I loved the fruity sweetness in each chew that reminded me of warmer weather. Plus, each piece comes individually wrapped so you can keep these to enjoy for a while or share with another sweets lover.

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Rap Snacks Chips MunchPak Box January 2018 - Rap Snacks Chips Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Rap Snacks Chips Open

Rap Snacks Migos Sour Cream With a Dab Of Ranch Chips, 1 oz. – Retail Value $2.00 (currently out of stock)

Ok, this bag of chips is awesome! Inside the cool bag are some really delicious chips. Flavored with sour cream and a dab of ranch, so good! The chips are crunchy and a little greasy which sometimes you just need. You really get those hints of ranch in each bite to put these over the edge.

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Sante Cardamom Cashews MunchPak Box January 2018 - Sante Cardamom Cashews Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Sante Cardamom Cashews Open

Sante Cardamom Cashews, 1.25 oz. – Retail Value $3.00

I love cashews and they really make the perfect afternoon snack! This brand does a great job in creating really unique seasonings. This particular bag is flavored with cardamom, a bold spice. Each cashew has a light sweetness, crunch, mixed with that lovely spice that makes this so addicting! A great snack to enjoy with your lunch or for an afternoon energy boost with extra flavor.

MunchPak Box January 2018 - Tomahawk Chips Ketchup Flavor MunchPak Box January 2018 - Tomahawk Chips Ketchup Flavor Ingredients MunchPak Box January 2018 - Tomahawk Chips Ketchup Flavor Open

Tomahawk Chips Ketchup Flavor, 43 g – Retail Value $3.00 (currently out of stock)

These chips were so thin and light! Each bite had a great crunch, and the seasoning really tastes like ketchup. I love ketchup so this was a dream snack. I have tried a few different ketchup flavored chips before, but I have to say that these were by far the most authentic tasting!

Verdict: MunchPak is a snacker’s dream! My husband is a big snacker and MunchPak is probably one of his favorites. Each month comes with so much variety that allows you to have something salty, a little chocolate, and treats that will take you back to when you were a kid. From hard candies to bug gum like this month, there are usually silly snacks that remind me of when I was a kid, which I love! MunchPak is always filled with so many snacks too that we are usually still working through a box when the next one arrives at our door.  

To Wrap Up:

  1. My son would love that bug tape and keep asking for more. I like the idea that the bugs are strawberry-flavored and the rest is a lemonade flavor. Also, it’s been many years since I’ve had Milka chocolate (first had it in Germany). Brings back memories and I love that chocolate. Keeping an eye on this box. 🙂

    • I agree, such a fun box, always filled with fun treats for little ones as well!

  2. That snackpak looks so cool! My kids would have fought over the bug tape!

    • It was a huge hit in my house!
