Try My Snacks is a snack subscription that sends you a box full of mouth-watering goodies from a different country every month.
Depending on what size you choose, your box will have anywhere from 5 – 20+ different snacks from that month’s featured country. Upon signing up, you’ll have a chance to personalize your box by taking a 30 second quiz about your food preferences, reducing the chance of getting snacks you don’t like. You’ll also get a booklet that includes a description of each snack with nutrition labels, fun facts, puzzles, and more. Subscribers will even receive a bill or a coin from each country to give you an experience you’ll always remember.
Disclosure: Box was received for review.
Subscriptions are $16.95/month for a mini pack (6-9+ snacks), $29.95/mo. for a single pack (10-13+ snacks & a drink), and $49.95/mo. (17-22+ snacks & a drink) for a family pack. Shipping is free within the US.
Let’s see what’s in my September 2020 Try My Snacks box!
Everything was shipped in a white snack-covered box with a Try My Snacks logo in the center.
A peek inside! — I received the Family Pack for review.
A full-color booklet revealed this month’s featured country — Turkey! It included some fun facts about the country, a full list of all of the possible snacks you could receive (with photos and descriptions), and a few games.
The coin we received was 50 Kuruş (or the equivalent to 1/2 lira). The booklet gives plenty of information on its design/symbols and what they mean. It’s actually a bi-metallic coin, made out of both brass and a copper-nickel alloy. Neat!
Ülker Krispi Chips with Taco Spice Seasoning
These spicy chips (crackers?) are flavored with taco seasoning to give them a little kick. You can enjoy them as-is, or pair them with salsa or onion dip for an extra treat.
Kind of like a mini breadstick, these crispy pretzel sticks possess an Italian flair with the addition of herbs & spices including onions, garlic, red peppers, thyme, and basil. — A great snack for pizza-loving kiddos!
Tayaş MilkPlus Strawberry Candy
These pretty pink strawberry-flavored candies are made with real milk and have a soft, creamy filling. Each piece is individually wrapped and perfect for taking on the go.
This unique treat consists of a flaky puff pastry on the outside with a smooth, creamy chocolate hazelnut filling on the inside. Yum!
Ülker Dankek Pöti
I’m not sure if this is a muffin or a cake, but either it looks delicious either way. It’s made with natural ingredients including wheat flour, sugar, eggs, fat reduced cocoa powder, whey, and salt.
Ülker Altinbasak Corekotlu Kinoali
These crispy crackers are perfect for a mid-afternoon snack. They’re made with wholesome ingredients including whole wheat flour, wheat bran, rolled oats, flaxseed, sesame seeds, and quinoa. I was hoping these would be vegan, but alas, they contain skimmed milk powder. :/
Another one for the chocolate fans, Biskrem features crunchy biscuits (cookies) with a smooth chocolate cream filling. Mmm!
Ülker Cizi Vic Cheese Crackers
Cracker time! These savory crackers consist of two crispy, buttery crackers held in place by a creamy cheese-flavored filling. It’s a decent-sized package that contains at least two servings; perfect for sharing.
Ülker Haylayf Biscuits
At first I thought these were also crackers, but after reading a few different descriptions I’m pretty sure they’re actually biscuits (cookies). Possibly like the Turkish version of a graham cracker? I would try them myself to confirm, but like all of the other snacks they contain dairy. 🙁
Uludağ Gazoz Mixed Fruit Flavored Soda
All Family Pack (and Single Pack) boxes come with a beverage in addition to all of the snacks. Uludağ Gazoz Mixed Fruit Soda is made from water and granulated sugar derived from sugar beets with assorted fruit flavoring. It’s actually a recipe that has been guarded as a secret for four generations! Also, how cool is that texture going on towards the bottom of the glass bottle?
Ülker Probis Mini Sandwich Cookies
These sandwich cookies consist of two crunchy protein-packed biscuits sandwiched together by a sweet cocoa and banana cream filling. A tasty treat for any time of the day.
Bonart Cola Gummies
Chewy, cola-flavored gummy candies made with natural colors and real fruit juice. According to the info booklet, these bottle-shaped gummies actually fizz in your mouth!
Hanimeller Cokodolu with Hazelnut
Okay, these look REALLY good. Not only are these delicious chocolate chip cookies — but they’re delicious chocolate chip cookies FILLED with chocolate & hazelnut cream. I think that photo on the package says it all. 😉
Shock Rocks Chocolate
I’d say this particular item is designed for those with a more… adventurous palate. It consists of milk chocolate infused with little “popping” candies. (Kinda like a Hershey bar topped with Pop Rocks.) Not my cup o’ tea. 😉
Elit Milk Chocolate Stick
Unlike the bar above, this one is made ONLY with creamy milk chocolate. — No popping candies here! A much more “classic” treat.
Four “mini” chocolate bars were also included. Albeni (similar to a Twix bar), Ülker Chocolate Wafer (chocolate bar with crispy wafer layers), Ülker Coco Star (coconut flavored chocolate bar), and Ülker Metro (chocolate bar with caramel & nougat).
My September 2020 Try My Snacks box was absolutely bursting with snacks! There were sweet treats, crispy chips, savory crackers, crunchy cookies, chewy gummyies, and more. — Something for everyone! (Well, except vegans like me. 😉 ) I really liked how the information booklet included facts about Turkey and the fun addition of an authentic piece of currency. Very cool!
