Rebranding my blog was the best thing I ever did as I love that I have more freedom to write about what I want. Don’t worry, you’re not going to find posts on lawnmowers or squirrels but I like that I can blog about non-beauty products without worrying about it not fitting the ‘makeup’ part of my blog name. I have a subscription box addiction and beauty boxes will always be my favourite but I’ve really been been looking into new subscription services and one of the subscriptions I was recommended was Munchpak. Munchpak are a monthly subscription box which features ‘candy’ and snacks from around the world which you can customise by choosing preferences such as sweet, salty, sour, chewy, crunchy and gummy. You can opt for three different sizes of box depending on how many snacks you want; 5+ snacks, 10+ snacks and 20+ snacks, and although the most popular delivery option is monthly, you can also opt for weekly, every two weeks or monthly too and I have the Munchpak October 2017 box. Due to the preferences, the boxes will differ from box to box but here are the products inside my box..
Inside the box there isn’t a menu card like you’d get with a beauty box, instead you have to download the Munchpak Snack Scanner. The Snack Scanner allows you to scan each snack within the box to find out more information on each item such as the country of origin, the price and description as well as allowing you to purchase the products inside your box. It’s super quick and easy to use and takes no more than 5 seconds to scan each product.
The first item in the box is a 57g sample of the Boca Java Surfing Safari Artisan Roasted Coffee. There’s no barcode on this pouch so I think it might just be a sample rather than a product but it is described as an exotic blend of sweet vanilla, creamy caramel and rich Kahlua.
Next up is the Kathy Kaye Glazed Birthday Cake Popcorn worth $3 which not only sounds incredible, it tastes incredible too. We have such plain popcorn here in the UK, but this is the tastiest popcorn I’ve ever tried and the glaze even has multicoloured sprinkles within it just like a birthday cake. Then I got the American Cow Tales Crispy Moo Bar worth $3 which combines crispy rice crispies and marshmallow with tiny bits of ‘Cow Tales’ and it tastes like one of the Kelloggs cereal bars but a lot sweeter.
The next item is the Nestle Cocoselle Crunchy Coconut Wafers worth $2. It’s a pretty huge bar and reminds me of a chocolate-less Kit Kat with layered wafers which smells like delicious coconut. Cocoselle originated in Venezuela but is now produced in Colombia. Then it’s the Lotte Nude Pepero worth $3 from South Korea which are crunchy biscuit sticks with a chocolate cream filing which remind me of Mikado except the chocolate is on the inside.
Bulgaria is the origin of the next snack… the 7 Days Double Croissant worth $3 which contains a strawberry and vanilla filling. I have to admit this was the item in the box I was least excited about as it didn’t look very appealing on the packet but it’s actually really nice and very soft for a packet croissant. Then it’s the Nestle Milo Sandwich Cookie worth $1 which is from Colombia, and tastes just like an Oreo with four of them in this one packet. Nestle Milo is sold in many different versions such as cookies, energy drinks, chocolate bars and cereal.
There were two packets of crisp-like snacks within my Munchpak October 2017 box. Firstly the Great Lakes Potato Chip Co. Kettle Cooked Parmesan Ranch Potato Chips worth $2 described as zesty, crunchy and tangy, and originate from Michigan with Michigan grown potatoes. The second is the Cheetos Smokey Korean BBQ worth $4 from South Korea which are my favourite item from the box as they’re absolutely delicious and remind me of Nik Naks.
The last two items within the Munchpak October 2017 are both sweet/candy treats. Firstly is the Warheads Extreme Sour Minis Hard Candy worth $3 which are the most insanely sour thing I’ve ever tried, they really are as crazy as their reputation but they’re not the kind of sweet you’d want to try more than one of as they’re ridiculously sour. The last item in the box is the 7-11 Yogurt Jelly Candy Bottles worth $4 which are delicious fruity jellies.
So they are all of the items inside my Munchpak October 2017 box. I’d love to know your thoughts?! Do you love snacks and sweets as much as I do? If you fancy signing up to Munchpak for your very own box, if you use code GEMMAETC you’ll get $3 off your first box 🙂
