My August #MunchPak Reveal!

(This post is not sponsored by MunchPak.)

This monthly snack subscription sure isn’t getting old. I am always so happy to open a box at the beginning of each month!

I signed up for MunchPak (a monthly international snack subscription) in May and while the subscription can be cancelled at any moment, I don’t plan to cancel mine any time soon! 🙂 I pay $9.95/month for the mini subscription. It usually includes five to six snacks, which I find to be a reasonable price if I compare to the price of an individual snack at the international market.

In August, there were five snacks in my package, from Canada, Turkey, Japan and China.

Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Potato Chips, from Canada

These chips were from the same Canadian company that made the lobster chips I tried last month. I was worried to try them due to my well-known fear of spicy food. In the end, the flavor was slightly spicy but manageable, even for big babies like me. The taste was actually very similar to BBQ chips.

Pejoy Chocolate Biscuit Sticks, from Japan

These little sticks of joy were filled with chocolate. It wasn’t too filling but it was certainly satisfying. I mean, a cookie stick filled with chocolate…how could this go wrong? I’ll take a case, thanks!

Paskesz Oodles Blue Raspberry Fruity Chews, from China

I have a tendency to glance to quickly at food labels. I assume what a thing might be without knowing for sure (i.e. read the label correctly). Every month, at least one snack takes me by surprise that way. Well, being myself, I assumed these would be like Nerds (hard tiny candies) and was pleasantly surprised to find out they were actually chewy! (Yes, I know, it’s in the name…doh!) The blue raspberry flavor (whatever that actually is) was reminiscent of childhood candy haul. A weird mixture of Nerds and Skittles.

Bebeto Sour Neon Worms, from Turkey

I shared these with a friend on a Gilmore Girls night. It always feels appropriate to eat candy while watching my favorite TV mother-daughter duo. These tiny gummy worms had a very odd texture. The best I could come up with is a mixture between a regular sour gummy worm, a marshmallow and a Haribo strawberry softy.

Torku Favorimo Coko Cake, from Turkey

Another Gilmore Girls night snack. I’m not sure how I felt about this one, probably because I’m not a big fan of artificial banana flavors. The cake was moist, the chocolate topping was nice, but the banana stuffing was odd. It almost had a jelly texture. While I’m glad I tried it, I don’t think I’d want to have these again.

I just received my September package and I look forward to try everything and share my tasting experience with you all!
