Korean Snacks Box July 2018 Review

info sheet

The info sheet is a little plain but lists out what comes in the box with the Korean names written out as well. 

Pinka nd white cloth snack pouch

Bokjumeoni Silk Bag of Candy

The first thing that caught my eye was this really pretty pink and white silk drawstring bag filled with candies.

open Pinka nd white cloth snack pouch with treats spilling out

There were essentially two kinds, and one came in varying flavors.

White Crunch Mini and Jonghab Jelly on plate

White Crunch Mini

This has some super adorable packaging that features a white chubby bunny/bear/cat (?) against a navy blue background. The treat is quite delicious! It’s a crispy rice square coated in yogurt. One little bite is all I need but it’s not too sweet at all.

Jonghab Jelly

The jelly came in a few different flavors, but the one above is melon. It has a really sweet fresh taste that is spot on to an actual honeydew melon. The jelly is firm without being slimy or dry and has a fun texture.

Oh Yes Noir Caramels Oh Yes Noir Caramel on a plate

Oh Yes Noir Caramel x3

Sarah jumped at the chance to taste one of the three of these I received in the large box. She describes it as “a ho ho but with caramel” (and, of course, square) which I have to agree with. I don’t loooove caramel flavored things unless they are straight up caramels, so this is a bit sweet for my tastes and you can smell it as soon as you open the package. The cake is pretty soft and moist though which is impressive after its long journey.

Choco Pies Banana Choco Pie Banana on a plate

Choco Pie Banana x3

Another snack that I received several of is the Choco Pie Banana which looks just how it sounds: like a chocolate banana moon pie. I am one of the many people who does not go near banana flavored things, so Sarah braved this one for me. She has the banana tasted artificial and that the cake was dry, but it did make her immediately want some fresh banana bread. Looks like I’ll be pawning these off on someone else.

Jelly Day Pomegranate Jelly Day Pomegranate on a plate

Jelly Day Pomegranate

Oooo yea. These are super yummy! I love pomegranate and these moist gummies are coated in sugar and shaped like little hearts to make them even better! I can easily eat this packet in one sitting. I love the name Jellyday too!

Konjac Jelly

Konjac Jelly

This has got to be the most unique of the bunch. At first, it reminds me of the pouches of applesauce but is actually a “drink style jelly snack”. This is SO WILD and extremely sweet. It has a thin drink-like liquid but you also need to squeeze harder to get the more solid jelly to come out of the spout. If you’ve ever had one of the Asian candies that are a little cup of jelly that you peel open and “shoot” into your mouth, this is a big version of that. At first, I thought it tasted like lychee, but the package clearly has peaches on the front. While this is a really fun experience, I think it’s a bit too sweet for me!

Verdict: Korean Snacks Box was a wild ride and contained mostly super sugary candies and snacks. I am always hopeful for savory treats but didn’t get any this time around. There was a fair amount of jelly happening which I enjoy but everything was ultra sweet for my tastes. 

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? No, you will get the August box.

Coupon – Use code MSA3 and get a $3 discount!

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $25.95 + free shipping, which means that each of the six types of items in the box has an average cost of $4.33 (per type). That’s actually not too bad seeing as though I received 3 of some, a silk bag, and other items I’d never try otherwise.

I love all your reviews. I feel like the value isn’t there for this one though. Maybe a bad month?
