Korean Snacks Box August 2018 Review
This month’s snack box contained small, individually packaged snacks that went along with their Chuseok (sometimes compared to US Thanksgiving) theme. The insert also gives you a very brief overview of the snacks included – nutrition information isn’t provided – so if you have food allergies, you might need to proceed with caution. I do not have any known allergies, so I jumped right in!
These gummies are watermelon shaped and flavored. They were pretty sweet, but very tasty!
Pepero Nude Chocolate
These have a similar flavor to the popular Japanese Pocky stick snack, just inside out. The biscuit is straw-like and filled with a yummy chocolate cream.
This snack had a cake-like texture and almost tasted like a lime-flavored cake zipped in chocolate. It did get a little smooshed up in transit – and I don’t think that green and brown things are that appealing to eat, especially when they are smashed – so I thought it was just OK.
So, this is the strangest snack in my opinion – it’s a cake, shaped like a carp. It’s a traditional street food found in Korean markets. This is a sweet vanilla flavored cake, stripped with chocolate. It was pretty good!
The insert says that these little potato fries are healthier than chips – but I’m not sure that that is the case. Either way, they’re delicious. The taste like a cross between a McDonald’s fry and a potato chip. They are simply salted and have an amazing crunch!
Bokjumeoni Silk Bag of Candy
I love that the smaller items are contained in a beautiful Bokjumeoni silk bag. I was surprised at how great the quality was for this type of item, and definitely can find a use for it around the house! This month the bag was yellow and ivory, with a pink and white embellishment towards the middle. Super cute and very summery.
I received two flavors of these fruit chews. They’re sweet, fruity, chewy, and pleasant.
I received three familiar flavors of Sunkist hard candy. This is listed as a popular Korean fruit drink, but I drank quite a bit of the orange variety growing up in Western Pennsylvania!
Verdict: Korean Snacks Box is a fun box and I really enjoyed reviewing the contents. I enjoyed most of these delicious and unique snacks – and I’m not sure that I could pick a favorite. This box definitely lends itself towards a sweet tooth – and most of the snacks were sugary treats!

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $25.95 + free shipping, which means that each of the 7 types of items in the box (not including the silk bag) has an average cost of $3.71. That felt fair to me and the value is in the novelty of trying new things.
