MunchPak December 2015


What is MunchPak?

MunchPak is an assortment of the best snacks from around the world delivered to your home, dorm room, or office as often as you would like.
So, it's the fourth month of Munchpak, and I did something different this month. I typed this up the DAY we got the box, so I could taste them as I wrote the review. Hence why this review is on time!

As always, I told Mama Melissa I would do a written review on this, so I'm going in the order she unboxed the MunchPak in. FYI, We got the FamilyPak, which has at least 20 snacks.


Takis Fuego Hot Chili & Lime Tortilla chips
Super deliciously spicy Hot chili pepper and lime flavor tortilla chips have an amazing taste that leaves you wanting to eat a few more.
Country: Mexico

I actually reviewed these back in June in my BoCandy review. Same hotness, but still yummy. Still can’t a whole bag at once though.
TASTE: 7/10

Hello Panda biscuits with Milk Cream
Hello Panda brand Japanese biscuits are manufactured by Meiji Seika. Every biscuit consists of a small hollow shortbread cookie filled with vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate filling.
Country: Japan

I liked these. The biscuits were very soft and the ‘Milk Cream,’ which is actually vanilla flavored, is very creamy. I think our local Wegmans sells these for $1 a box, so I may be picking up a box or two on my next trip out there.
TASTE: 9/10

VCut potato Chips in Spicy Barbeque flavor
Deliciously addicting Barbecue flavored chips from the Philippines with a slight kick. Very enjoyable!
Country: Philippines

These are the Philippine version of ‘Ruffles’ or ‘Wavy Lays’ chips. I didn’t taste much barbeque flavor on these. Nice crunch to them, but the flavor fell flat.
TASTE: 6/10

Tayto Cheese & Onion flavor
Tayto Cheese and Onion Flavor - If you like the taste of cheese and onion - these crisps are for you. Strong with a bite.
Country: Ireland

And our first repeat. We had these last month as well. I tasted more onion on these chips. But it wasn’t like onion taste from Sour Cream & Onion chips; this was more like the onion taste from Funyuns. I LOVED these… one of my favorite items in the box.
TASTE: 10/10

Cow Tails Caramel Apple flavor
Goetze's Cow Tales are scrumptiously soft and intriguingly chewy caramels that are wrapped around a smooth cream center.
Country: United States

Would you believe I never had a Cow Tail until I was in my 30s? I’ve had their ‘bigger brother’ Caramel Creams, but never these. Mama Melissa looked at me like I had 3 heads when I said I never had them.
These were interesting. I could really taste the apple from the center cream filling, and it tasted JUST like I bit into an apple. I still like the original ones over these.
TASTE: 8/10

Torku 4x4 Energy Nougat Bar With Caramel
Chewy and delicious caramel and nougat candy bar with rich chocolate coating and an extra kick of energy.
Country: Turkey

Reminded me of the texture of a Milky Way, but the nougat had a brownie taste to it. I liked the fact that it was an energy bar, so I didn’t feel entirely guilty eating it.
TASTE: 8.5/10

Digaroos candy
Yummy and delicious strawberry flavored powder candy with a shovel to dig for delicious hard candy treasure inside!
Country: United States

I actually didn’t like this. The ‘treasure’ hurt my teeth and the powder had a sour kick to it. I think this would be the one item disabled people would have trouble with. The shovel is EXTREMELY tiny and there would be no way someone with unsteady hands could use it. Mama Melissa ate this herself.
TASTE: 5/10

Grandma’s Chocolate Chips cookies
Grandma's cookies are known for being incredibly chewy and fresh. There are not too many other cookies available in the U.S. that are this chewy and this big.
Country: United States

Had the consistency between an original Chips Ahoy and Chewy Chips Ahoy cookie. I’ve actually had these before, so I knew what to expect. I’d say it tasted a hint sweeter than the Chips Ahoy brands.
TASTE: 8/10

Vital Fruit Nougat Bar
Utterly delicious and chewy nougat candy bar with exceptional fruit pieces..
Country: Belgium

Strangest nougat I’ve ever had. It was more like the sugary fondant you’d find on bakery-style cakes or the sugar icing on donuts and danishes. I liked the papaya and pineapple pieces in this. Very chewy and easy on the teeth.
TASTE: 9/10

Sponch marshmallow cookies
These crunchy and deliciously gooey strawberry and original flavored marshmallow cookies are covered with coconut flakes and topped with strawberry jam.
Country: Mexico

Mounds of marshmallow, a drop of strawberry gel and coconut dusting on top of a shortbread square. I think I could have done without the strawberry jam on top. I don’t think it really added anything to the cookie. I ended up with these, since Mama Melissa is allergic to coconut.
TASTE: 8/10

Stark Prima Kikiriki Pretzel sticks
Crunchy and wholesome baked salted pretzel sticks. Light taste with the perfect texture makes for an excellent snack.
Country: Serbia

Second repeat item. We had these in the September 2015 box. Tasted like peanut butter filled pretzel sticks, although these seemed to have more peanut butter filling than the September bag. I tasted more peanut butter than pretzel. Still delicious though.
TASTE: 7/10

Jaffa Crvenka Munchmallow cookies
Scrumptious marshmallow topped on a delicious cookie and covered with rich and dreamy milk chocolate.
Country: Serbia

We have something very similar to this here in America called Mallomars. Exact same thing. Reminded me of a s’more. The cookie was actually a graham cracker. I liked these a lot.
TASTE: 8/10

Hi-Chews Mango flavor
These are so yummy! Deliciously juicy, chewy and scrumptious Hi-Chews in mouth-watering mango flavor.
Country: Japan

I think by now, we KNOW what Hi-Chew candies are; This is my 4th time reviewing them. This time, we got the mango variety. I personally thought these had the ‘fake mango’ taste, which is surprising for Hi-Chews, considering the other 3 had real fruit flavor to them. Kind of disappointed.
TASTE: 4/10

Cikolatali Gofret bar
Scrumptious wafers filled with rich and creamy chocolate filling and covered in exceptionally dreamy milk chocolate. Yum yum!
Country: Italy

Tasted like the chocolate wafers we have from Voortman, but covered in melted chocolate. Very delicious.
TASTE: 8/10

KitKat Chunky in Peanut Butter
"Chunky" not because the peanut butter is chunky, but because the bar itself is chunkier than that standard Kit Kat bar and it comes as one big Kit Kat rather than four separable ones.
Country: Bulgaria

America needs to get these pronto. I think these tasted BETTER than the traditional ones… which leads me to a question; why does America have 4 flavors of Kit Kat bars, and the rest of the world has a LOT more than that? Come on, Nestle… bring some of the foreign flavors to America!
TASTE: 10/10

C’est Bon White Chocolate wafer bar
Super delicious white chocolate covered wafers are layered with hazelnut and chocolate wafered and drizzled with chocolate.
Country: Turkey

Reminded me of a ‘cake’ ice cream cone with nutella covered with white chocolate. Very interesting flavor.
TASTE: 8/10

Loucks Sesame Snaps
These delightful Sezme Sesame Snaps are made with roasted sesame seeds that are rich in vitamins, vegetable proteins, and unsaturated fatty acids. This snack is actually good for you and tastes even better.
Country: Poland

At first, I thought this was another repeat item, but when I compared notes, This wasn’t a repeat item after all. This tasted MUCH better than the sesame snack we had last month. Very heavy on the sesame flavor, without the burnt taste. Yum!
It did hurt my gums when a sharp piece jabbed me where I’ve been having ongoing issues. But that’s my fault, not the snack’s.
TASTE: 9/10

Milk Nuty Max bars
Nuty Max Milk Chocolate coated wafer with exceptionally delicious milk cream.
Country: Turkey

Another wafer bar… Are you sick of the wafers yet? Haha. But this has what seems like a dollop vanilla cream cheese frosting surrounded by the wafer. LOVED this. Another of my favorites in this month’s box.
TASTE: 10/10

e frutti Pizza Gummy Candy
Gummy Fruity Pizza. What could be better!?
Country: Mexico

I don’t know WHAT fruit flavor I was supposed to taste here. I tasted fruit punch if anything. I like anything gummy, so this was a hit.
TASTE: 8/10

Tayas Figola Chocolate Orange bar
Rich and creamy chocolate made from only the finest ingredients and infused with delicious oranges.
Country: Turkey

I find it VERY apropo that this was in the December box. However, you BARELY taste any orange in this until the VERY end, when you’re about to swallow the piece. I’ve never actually ate a chocolate orange, so I have NOTHING to base this on. But if the chocolate oranges tastes similar to this, it’s delicious.
TASTE: 9/10

Tortica Original
Tortica is among the best-known Kras brands. This wafer snack is of exceptional quality
Country: Croatia

3rd repeat item of the box. Croatian version of Keebler Fudge Sticks. Only difference is that the filling in these was chocolate and not vanilla. Otherwise, same taste.
TASTE: 9/10

Only problem I see disabled people having with this (minus any allergies) is opening the packages and chewing the chewy candies thoroughly. If you can eat snacks, you'll be fine.

This is available from MunchPak.com starting at $9.95. These come in 3 sizes; MunchPak Mini (5-6 Snacks), MunchPak Original (10+ Snacks) and MunchPak Family Pak (20+ Snacks), and you can have it delivered weekly, bi-monthy or monthly. As I said, Mama Melissa subscribed to the FamilyPak, delivered monthly.

Love this service! It's great to get snacks from around the world without leaving your house!
