Korean Snacks Box November 2018 Review
This month’s snack box contained individually packaged snacks that went along with their 11/11 Pepero Day theme. Pepero Day is an occasion for buying boxes of Pepero to give to close friends or romantic partners in a show of appreciation, oftentimes including a handwritten message on the box. The insert for this months’ box also gave a very brief overview of the snacks included. Nutritional information isn’t provided, so tread with caution if you have food sensitivities. Because I don’t, I dove right in.
These sticks were so classic! Very much reminded me of the first time I had Pocky. Semi-sweet biscuit covered in chocolate cream—what’s not to love?
Pepero White Cookie
I’m a huge fan of anything cookies and cream flavored, and these Pepero were no exception. They were shorter than the original flavor, and the quantity was fewer, but that wasn’t an issue. I’m totally going to pick up a box next time I’m at an Asian grocery store. These were so good! Keeping with the theme of Pepero Day, this box would be a great one to give to your sweetheart, as they’re a bit more elevated than the normal chocolate kind.
Pepero Choco Cookie
These were essentially the all-chocolate version of the White Cookie Pepero. If you’re a pretty big chocolate fiend, these are certainly for you. I prefer the White Cookie ones but can see how these would be a fun way to satisfy a chocolate craving, with some added crunch.
It was really exciting to see these cakes in this month’s box! I used to buy Choco Pies all the time when I lived in Hong Kong a few years back, so these were certainly a sentimental treat. The cakes themselves are a little dry and crumbly, but the marshmallow center keeps them interesting and makes for a nice bite. I appreciate how these snack cakes aren’t as sweet as others on the market. My boyfriend claims they’re like a moon pie, which I can’t ever remember having (please forgive me), so if you’re into moon pies, then you’re likely to enjoy these, too.
Jelly Day Peach Candy
I was worried these were going to be as aggressively sweet and synthetically flavored as traditional peach rings, but they surprised me! Despite a light sugar coating and a profound fragrance, these candies were chewy and only slightly sweet. I polished off the whole bag pretty quickly, which wasn’t hard to do, as the serving size was sparing.
Malang Strawberry Milk Candy
These strawberry milk candies were very chewy like taffy and had a very mild, creamy flavor. According to the info sheet, these are popular to share among students in Korea. I’d be pretty excited if someone passed me a few of these! Also, the silk bag was a nice touch.
Market O Real Brownie
Pre-packaged brownies don’t usually grab my attention, but I went into trying these with an open mind. Dry and crumbly, they wound up not impressing me much. These were my least favorite of the month, mostly because of the dryness.
Verdict: Korean Snacks Box is a really enjoyable box, and given the theme, I had a great time reviewing each item with my sweetheart in tow. My favorite was definitely the Pepero White Cookie. I’d love to receive a more savory iteration of this box down the line.
