Munchpak mini box review.

I've been watching subscription boxes unboxings for months now. I've been wanting to to subscribe to  few for a long time, but for budget reasons, that hasn't been possible. For Christmas I was sent a visa gift card. With that I was able to get to try  couple of subscription boxes. Earlier this week I subscribed to try Munchpack. You can click on the link on the side bar on the right to check it out and subscribe. . I've been toying with getting this box for a while. Like I always do with shopping. I put a box in the cart, then took it out. Well to try to get me to get a subscription, Munchpak sent me an offer to get the Munchpak mini for 50% off. I couldn't pass that offer up, So I used the little left I had on the gift card and got the box. It shipped really quick. and with the company being in Phoenix, AZ I got it quick, like in a couple days.

Munchpack is a food subscription box. Snacks from all over the world. It come in 3 sizes Munchpak mini 5+ snacks($9.95), Munchpak original 10+ snacks($19.95), and Munchpak family that has 20+ snacks($39.95).Shipping is free. Also you get a choice of you want the box sent once a week,  2 times a month or once a month. I chose once a month. You can also personlize the box if you want. Like if you want more salty snacks or don't want spicy. BUT you get charged $1.00 for every choice you make to personalize the box. They do take all credit cards. and they say they take paypal. but when signing up for the box, I only saw the credit card option. When looking into it, if you give a a gift you can use paypal.

With each box you get a postcard one one side its shows to enter to win a free Familypak by sharing through social media. The other side says who packed the box. My box was packed by Nick, Thank you Nick!

Now for the goodies that are in the box. I did a unboxing video for YouTube but I didn't taste anything on camera. I have a thing where listening to people chew makes me crazy. Its drives me nuts, like fingernails on a chalkboard.  If I'm in a restaurant or if there like TV on or something like that I'm fine.

Ok I'm rambling and going off the trail here. Back to the snacks! I got 6 snacks in the box. I'm going to show the snacks and then take pictures of what they look like and then give my review of them.

First thing I opened form the box was this Choco Pie from Lotte.From looking the brand up to see where they are from, it looks like India. But they have production all over the world.  I've seen these at the 99 cent store, but never got them. 

This is is my favorite of the bunch. Its basically a moon pie. the cake is good, though a little dry.and the marshmallow is yummy. I like this one and would buy it if i saw it in the store. Though I need to be watching my carbs. lol

Next up are these Bissli Extreme wheat snacks by Osem. they are from Israel. 
I opened the bag and I smell hickory smoke of BBQ. Its not an in your face smell, which is god. As you can see in the picture the wheat snacks are spirals. They are very crunchy. When you fist take a bite you can taste the BBQ, but it slowly goes away once you are halfway chewing. Its not bad. They are tasty. Would I go out and buy them if I see them, probably not.

Another Lotte product is these waffle chips. I'm guess they are called Waffle Mate. At least that's what it says on the box in English. They are from Korea.

I open the box and inside there are 2 pages inside. 

There are 3 waffle cookies inside. 

They smell  good. Like vanilla. They taste pretty good. I do taste a little bit of coconut.Looking at the ingredients and there  is hydrogenated coconut oil in it. If i saw these in the store I might buy them.

Meet the Beatle! These candies are I don't know, because nothing is in English other than beatles. I'm guess this is out of Japan. And if you do a google image search, you get the band. lol 

Opening the bag I get a punch of fruit smell.Looks like the flavors from the bag are lemon, grape orange, and green apple. and I was wrong they re not like jelly beans. lol They are like Skittles. Not bad. They aren't super sour. but the lemon one has a bit of tart to it. I'm not a big Skittles fan, so I don't think I'll be buying these. but they taste pretty good.

Bubu Lubu by Ricolin. The one in my box is a strawberry gummy candy and marshmallow with a chocolate flavor coating. Okay The Chocolate flavor has me a little worried. Ths product is from Mexico. 

This one is bit off. I don't taste the strawberry. It's okay. its a thick jelly. The chocolate isn't bad. The marshmallow is okay. The aftertaste is good. 

No this one has me worried. When I first looked at in the unboxing I didn't look t it too carefully. I did think it would be spicy from the looks on the packaging.Then I saw watermelon so thatfer went away. But When taking pictures for this blog post I looked at it better. This is Hormigas by Indy. Also from Mexico. This is a Watermelon Flavor candy confited with bittersweet and spicy powder.  I don't do spicy. A little spice okay like mild salsa. So when i taste this I will have something creamy near by. lol 

okay someone hold me. LOL I opened the package and took a sniff. Don't do that. I got a wiff of some spice in the powder.

there's 7 candies in the bag. I was taking lick of this one. not liking the taste. i love watermelon candy. my favorite being the sour patch kids watermelon. nope not liking this one.

So all in all I like the box. I do wish they had an option where you can get a 3,6, or 12 month payment option like other subscription boxes. they do have that if giving it as a gift.
