Korean Snacks Box October 2018 Review
This month’s snack box contained small, individually packaged snacks that went along with their vacation theme. The insert says that many people take weekend trips during the start of Autumn in Korea due to the good weather compared to the humid summer.
Silk Bag of Red Ginseng Jelly Gummi Candy And Lotte Ghana
I like how some of the items are in this blue silk bag – super cute and reusable!
Red Ginseng Jelly Gummi Candy
This is a traditional style Korean snack. The flavor is definitely unique and different from anything I’ve ever tasted. I wasn’t a huge fan, but I do like testing out new flavors that I’ve never tried before!
Lotte Ghana Creamy Chu
The outside of this snack was chocolate and nuts, and the inside had a mochi layer with more chocolate inside. This reminded me of a typical chocolate with a twist – I liked the surprise of the mochi layer inside! This was my favorite snack of the box.
This was 2 white cakes with cream in the middle covered in chocolate. Reminded me a bit of a hostess cake – overall I enjoyed it.
Milk Soft Candy Milky
These have a hard chewy consistency, somewhat similar to saltwater taffy (but not exactly). These ones actually tasted like milk in my opinion, and to me, the pink and yellow wrapped candies tasted the same.
Milk Soft Candy Milky Matcha
These were the same kind of candy as the pink and yellow ones above, but matcha flavored. As a general fan of matcha, I liked these much better than the original flavor.
Lotte Jellycious Cheong Podo
The consistency of these is very similar to gummy bears. They’re grape flavor but to me, they tasted a bit like lychee as well. I would definitely eat these again!
Bibigo Roasted Seaweed
I’m a big fan of roasted seaweed, and it’s been one of my favorite snacks since I was a kid, so I was excited to see it included in this box!
This is an ice cream style candy. The outside tastes like a sugar cone that you would eat real ice cream out of, and then the inside is sweet, light, and fluffy. It reminded me of a flavored ice cream cone. This snack came in strawberry (above) and chocolate (below) flavors.
Verdict: Korean Snacks Box is a fun box and I liked how each item was a surprise, including some flavors I’ve never tried before! This box is great for people who know and love Korean snacks, or are adventurous and like trying new things – or somewhere in between!
To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $25.95 + free shipping, which means that each of the 9 types of items in the box (not including the silk bag) has an average cost of $2.88. That felt fair to me, especially as they’re shipping all the way from Korea!
