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.
