Snack Crate “Brazil” Review

This box always greets you with a colorful booklet and talks you through every snack to be found in the subscription (at all levels)! This month’s theme is Brazil, so I’m really hoping to try some stuff I haven’t had before!

Snack Crate -February 2019 -stickers

There’s also an awesome bonus in each box: stickers! The stickers are always a hoot, and this month, I love the one of dancing meats on a skewer.

Ruffles Churrasco

I’m picky about my chip textures, and aside from kettle-cooked, ruffles are my favorite! These chips were so unique; they’re meant to be Brazilian barbecue-flavored, and it totally translates! To me it was very umami-forward; lots of smoky notes, and almost a hint of mushroom flavor. It was like the best experience of going to a Churrascaria, you know, just without the meat sweats.

Snack Crate -February 2019 - Jr pkg

Torcida Jr. Queijo

I had no idea what to expect when I read “cheesy fried bread squares” in the booklet, but these are actually kind of amazing! They’re super-crispy and have almost a romano cheese flavor. Their pleasingly tiny size means they’re a great movie snack to munch on while I try to see all the Oscar contenders this month!

Snack Crate -February 2019 -Peanut pkg

Pacoquita

This treat might be my favorite of the entire box! Very sweet and a little crumbly in texture, it reminds me a lot of homemade fudge. I liked that there was more than one of these in the box; it was nice and rich, and I ended up cutting these in half to better enjoy them. I’m a huge peanut butter nut (nope, not sorry about that pun), so these were a fantastic pick for me.

Snack Crate -February 2019 -Belo pkg

Bala 7 Belo Framboesa

These chews are super cute, but they definitely weren’t my favorite in the box! I don’t know if they were just too cold (my house is a little on the chillier side), but these were hard as a rock! They were very flavorful, but they didn’t strike me as pure raspberry, as they’re intended to be – I got more of a mixed berry vibe. Honestly, they didn’t taste bad at all, but the texture really put me off.

Snack Crate -February 2019 -Churro pkg

Fini Churros

This item took me on a roller coaster, dear readers. At first, I was beyond pumped, because I love churros – cinnamon and caramel are two of my most-beloved flavors. Then I saw that it was a gummy candy, and that scared me. I usually don’t see a ton of pastry-flavored gummies! Then, I tried it, and I have to say, I was pretty pleasantly surprised. It’s really sweet; I don’t think I could eat even half of this in one sitting, but truth be told, the caramel flavor shines through and actually makes for a nice candy.

Snack Crate -February 2019 -Banana pkg

Snack Crate -February 2019 -Banana plate

Banana Com Chocolate

These little treats are so fascinating – they’re a real aged banana that’s been dipped in chocolate! I’m sure “aged banana” doesn’t really inspire thoughts of deliciousness to most people, but this was my second-favorite sweet for sure! The chocolate was dark, flavorful, and not too rich, and the banana inside was definitely the genuine article, with a nice bright flavor that comes from bananas that are just the right amount of ripeness!

Verdict: Surprises abounded in this month’s box! I wasn’t familiar with any Brazilian snacks prior to receiving this box, but I really got a nice tour of the flavors and treats that are common to the country. Who knew I would fall in love with an aged banana? I loved the chips and cheese squares as well as the peanut treats, and I really enjoyed trying the more unique treats I received! I guess I better make sure to have some veggies this week, to balance out all my snackin’!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you have to sign up by the 5th of the month to get your Snack Crate, but when you do, you can choose among three countries for your first box.

Coupon: Save $2 off your first Mini box, $6 off your first Original box, or $14 off your first Premium box. No coupon needed, just link here.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $14 + free shipping, which means that each of the 6 items in the box (not including the bonus stickers) has an average cost of $2.33. Having this box curated and the products sent directly from the country of origin really adds to the value!

  1. I decided to try out this box earlier after reading your reviews! Thanks!

  2. Was Brazil the chosen country for your first box? I just received Hawaii for my February box and thought everyone receives the same country (or state?) each month. I think I would have enjoyed Brazil!
