Okay, so I’m a little late on this MunchPak review… But, hey, better late than never, right? Right-o!
If you’re new to MunchPak, they’re a monthly sub that sends you a big ol’ box of snacks from around the world. You can expect to receive goodies from Japan, Canada, Australia, Sweden, and other snack-producing countries. They also throw a few local treats in there too. Oh, and if you’re hardcore into snacking, you can choose to receive the boxes weekly or bi-weekly!
MunchPak has 2 different size options to choose from: The Original MunchPak (starting at $21 monthly) and The FamilyPak (starting at $39 monthly). This review is for the Original MunchPak.
Okay, onto the snackage!
Kinder Bueno – This European chocolate bar(?) is described on Amazon as “Ferrero Rocher type chocolate wrapped as individual sticks”. Mmm.
Nestle Aero Limited Edition Orange Bar – Are these bars sold in the US? I have no idea. I think I had one in Canada once (not orange). I remember liking the light texture of the air bubble filled chocolate. The addition of orange sounds really good too.
GooGoo Cluster – Apparently this little guy is “the world’s first ever combination candy bar”. It was created in 1912 and is made of marshmallow, peanuts, caramel, and milk chocolate.
Pinguinos – This is basically the Mexican equivalent of a Hostess cupcake.
Tayto Beef & Onion Flavour Crisps – When I first saw the flavor of these Irish chips, I was totally grossed out. However, when I went to read the label I was surprised to see that these are actually “suitable for vegetarians”. That said, I still won’t be trying these. 😉
Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons – These are simple little “buttons” of rich milk chocolate. I LOVED Cadbury chocolate before going vegan. My mom was more than happy to take all of these chocolates off my hands.
Cadbury Fudge Bar – A thick log of fudge covered in milk chocolate. (hehe thick log)
Cadbury Curly Wurly – A milk chocolate covered caramel strip (not to be confused with a log).
Meiji Yan Yan in Strawberry – These are cookie sticks with a strawberry flavored dipping cream. Each stick has a fun “message” printed on it. Cute!
Gansito Marinela Cookie – A popular Mexican chocolate covered cookie with a marshmallow filling and little dab of strawberry jam in the center.
Double Barrel Cooked Salami Sticks – Um, yeah. Self-explanatory.
Sabritas Picante Peanuts – Spicy, picante flavored peanuts.
Barritas Pina – Fruit filled pineapple bars. I was surprised to see that these are vegan. I’ve yet to work up the courage to try ’em though. Some day…
Cow Tales – I don’t get it. Why wouldn’t they be called Cow Tails? Wouldn’t that make more sense? Ehh. Anywhooo, these are chewy caramel sticks with a creamy center. And a dumb name.
Rowntree’s Fruit Gum Roll – Fruity gummy candies that soften as you chew ’em.
Lucas BomVaso – Sweet and hot Mexican candy with a bubble gum center.
Hi-Chew Mango Fruit Chews – Chewy Asian candies comparable to Starburst.
Rice Krispies Treat in Double Chocolatey Chunk – Classic Rice Krispie treat with chunks of chocolate.
Kex – I couldn’t find this on Amazon, but it looks like a wafer cookie of some sort. Possibly chocolate flavored?
Friday’s Cheddar & Bacon Potato Skins – Even when I did eat meat, this kinda stuff really grossed me out. Any kind of “meat” in a snack like this just seems odd to me. Blech.
M&M’s Bite Size Cookies – Okay, now these I would have loved if I weren’t vegan. Classic crunchy cookies with M&M’s sprinkled throughout. Mmm!
That’s a whole lotta snacks! Clearly, it’s not a good sub for vegans, but for anyone else, it’s great! There’s a nice variety of different types of snacks and most are things you can’t get here in the US.

what size box did you get?
Good question! It was the Original MunchPak. Thanks for asking — just updated the post! 🙂
You have great pictures! Just curious as to what type of camera you use (and whether it has a wifi option to send pictures directly you your comp or blog rather than plugging in and uploading and all that). -M
Aw, thanks! I actually use an older Nikon D40. I just upload ’em the old fashioned way (plugging it in). Nothin’ fancy. 😉
