October MunchPak Box

MunchPak is a whole bunch of munchy fun. Each month MunchPak will send you an assortment of snacks from around the world. These are snacks that you aren't going to find at your local store, unless of course you have a store that stocks foods from other lands. They have three different size packages depending on your snacking needs and you can semi customize the box. What that means is you can specify your preference such as no nuts, more salty, less spicy and they will do their best to send you those preferences. 

For this review the good people at MunchPak sent me this box complimentary for review. This review is for the medium size box priced at $19.95.

Price: $9.95-$39.95 a month depending on which size box you prefer. If you customize add $1.00 to the price. 

This subscription is available to the US and 18 other countries. 

The good:

Variety: You get a whole bunch of random goodness in this box!

Unique: These are not your common everyday snacks. 

Price: 3 different price points and box sizes. 

Like what you tried: You can get more at their online store.

Need a gift: The holiday are rapidly approaching. You can send a gift subscription to the snacker on your list. 

The not so good:

Picky snacker: If you're not open to trying new things then this is not the snack box for you. 

Skip a month: I didn't see an option to skip a month.

I'm not going to try and figure out the value of all these munchies. Some of them are familiar to me and some of them I had no idea what they were. I do know the one called Takis Paleta Fuego was super scary looking. The boyfriend handed it to me and it's a hard  red candy stick coated in red hot looking powder. I tried it but I had just eaten something with hot sauce on it so it was hard to tell how hot it was. I absolutely loved the Bake Rolls. They are little thin bagel looking crackers and are super delicious. We ate the Pepero with our morning coffee. I don't know if this is the correct way to eat them but I dipped it in my coffee. The Haribo teeth are just gummy teeth but it was really weird eating something that looked like dentures. The other thing that looked scary but was delicious were the Cheetos. They do have a spice to them but not too crazy. Strangely addicting, just like regular Cheetos. 

Verdict: This box was super fun and had some cool foreign snack foods to try.
