Munchpak February 2016


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 sixth month of Munchpak, and this will be the FINAL Munchpak review for me. Mama Melissa has decided to cancel her subscription to the box, so unless I start paying for it myself, this is the end of the road.
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.


Uncle Ray’s Ketchup flavored Potato Chips
Ketchup flavored potato chips
Country: United States

We’ve had two other brands of these before; one by Herr’s and one by Covered Bridge. These were wavy, and the taste was on par with the Herr’s brand. Very tasty.
TASTE: 9.5/10

Bud’s Best Cookies Bite Size Candy ‘n Cookies
Cookies with Candy
Country: United States

Reminded me of shortbread cookies with knockoff M&Ms. I liked these, but they seemed a bit underwhelming to me. I was honestly expecting more of the candies in these.
TASTE: 7/10

Scotch Almond Candies
Delicious scotch candy with an almond flavoring.
Country: South Korea

What seemed like butterscotch toffee with an almond on top. A bit too crunchy for me and my oral issues, but I did like the whole almond on top.
TASTE: 8/10

Palaroos Sour Candy Spray
Palaroos Sour Candy Spray Flavors: Strawberry, Watermelon, Green Apple, & Blue Raspberry
Country: United States

We received the Blue Raspberry flavor. Take a Charms Blue Razzberry Blow Pop (which, as a teenager, I ate by the display box monthly) and melt the lollipop/candy into liquid, then put it in a spray bottle. You now have this ‘candy.’ I only tried 3-4 squirts of this, but Mama Melissa said the more squirts you take, the more sour it becomes.
TASTE: 9/10

Sweet & Sour USA Sour!Tails! Strawberry Flavor
Delicious, chewy, sweet and sour candy straws are covered in sweet sugar and filled with sour filling.
Country: Spain

A sour, fruity Cowtail. I wouldn’t say the filling is sour, but it’s NOT like the filling in a regular Cowtail either. The fruity candy on the outside has more of the sour taste than the filling. I personally didn’t really care for this.
TASTE: 5/10

Toxic Waste Sour Smog Balls
Super sour and deliciously sweet combination of toxic waste incredibly sour candy.
Country: United States

Another one I didn’t really care for. I’m really not one for hard candies, and this is what these balls seem to be. Mama Melissa BIT right into hers. I pretty much swallowed mine whole, just to be able to move onto the next item.
TASTE: 3/10

Kras Dorina Kolumbo
And the right choice is new Kras Dorina chocolate bars: an irresistible combination of a creamy treat and the finest chocolate.
Country: Croatia

Mama Melissa and I seem to agree we’ve both had this chocolate before; we just can’t place where. This is a chocolate bar with hazelnuts and honey. Very creamy chocolate and the honey gives it an extra bit of sweetness. I liked this a lot. I also liked the fact that this chocolate did NOT make me gag.
TASTE: 9/10

Tropical Treat Island Flavors Coconut Slice Confection
Mango, Pineapple, Banana and kiwi flavors come together to create this delicious coconut confection.
Country: United States

One of the two snacks I got to myself, since Mama Melissa is allergic to Coconut. I really didn’t care for the Mango flavor, but I really liked the banana-pineapple and the kiwi flavors.
TASTE: 7/10

Crown Candies Home style Peanut Log
Delicious and flavorful white, fluffy and sugary nougat center covered in a thin caramel layer and draped in whole roasted and perfectly salted peanuts.
Country: United States

Think Fluffernutter sandwich in a log, because basically, that’s what this is. The ‘nougat center’ tasted more like solidified Marshmallow Fluff, then rolled in whole peanuts. One of my favorites of the box.
TASTE: 8/10

SimSek ‘Petit Beurre’ Tea Biscuits
Tasty tea biscuit made from the finest ingredients that bring a warming touch to any tea or coffee time.
Country: Turkey

These were reminiscent of Graham Crackers or shortbread style cookies. Crunchier than graham crackers; more on par with shortbread cookies. Mama Melissa said they had a strange taste to them if you ate more than two at a time, but I didn’t notice the flavor.
TASTE: 8.5/10

Drumsticks chewy candy
Drumstick chewy bar is yummy candy for all ages. A UK favorite, milk and raspberry flavor.
Country: United Kingdom

UK’s version of Starbursts. I gave these to Mama Melissa, since they were TOO tough on my teeth.
TASTE: 4/10

Ola Pola Chocolate Wafers
A 2-pack of tasty chocolate covered wafers. A Polish classic!
Country: Poland

Just like a chocolate wafer cookie, covered in chocolate. Really no other way to describe this.
TASTE: 7/10

Cadbury Timeout Bar
Cadbury Time Out bars have a crumbly milk chocolate center that is light and crunchy and sandwiched between two chocolate covered wafer fingers.
Country: United Kingdom

UK version of Keebler’s Fudge sticks, but sweeter and not as crunchy. I really didn’t see much of a difference between these and the Ola Pola bars.
TASTE: 8/10

Boy Bawang Lechon Manok Cornick
Roasted Chicken Flavored Corn Snack makes for a meal even at snack time. They're just the right amount of crunchy and tasty to make for one amazing and legendary snack
Country: The Philippines

These were different. They were what seemed to be fried corn kernels, with a dusting of spicy chicken ramen seasoning. Very crunchy, and a bit hard on my teeth, but I still loved them. Another favorite of this month’s box.
TASTE: 10/10

Gullon Dueto cookies
Delicious Gullon cookies are perfectly wholesome and incredibly irresistible. Once you pop one of these in your mouth you will know why Gullon is so reputably known throughout Europe
Country: Spain

This cookie was really more like chocolate spread on two Ritz-like cookies. The chocolate was delicious, but I feel like I could just make these at home with a jar of Hershey’s Chocolate spread and a package of Ritz crackers.
TASTE: 7/10

Goralki Chocolate Wafers
Delicious chocolate wafers wrapped in even more high-quality Polish chocolate.
Country: Poland

Another one that was just like a chocolate wafer cookie, covered in chocolate. Very similar to the Ola Pola bars from above.
TASTE: 7/10

Cajillions chewy candy in Watermelon
Tiny, tasty, sweet, chewy little candies in a lot (about a cajillion) teeny tiny little delicious pieces. Strawberry flavor.
Country: China

Best way to describe these were chewy Nerds candies. Very heavy on the fake watermelon flavor, which I cannot stand. I also gave these to Mama Melissa, since I was afraid these would get stuck in my gums.
TASTE: 3/10

Fruit ConFusions Twists in Strawberry Pineapple
Juicy strawberry and pineapple twists
Country: United States

These were just like Twizzlers, but more ‘opaque.’ They were also heavy on pineapple flavor. I tasted more of the pineapple than the strawberry, which isn’t a bad thing if you like pineapple flavor.
TASTE: 7/10

Morinaga Hi-Chew Cherry Flavor
These are so yummy! Deliciously juicy, chewy and scrumptious Hi-Chews in mouth-watering cherry flavor.
Country: Japan

We’ve had these Hi-Chews before. ‘Fake Cherry’ flavor abounds in these chewy candies, which have a texture somewhere between the strawberry toffee above and Starburst candies. The cherry flavor was EXACTLY like a cherry lollipop or a LifeSaver in cherry flavor. I really liked these, better than the apple ones.
TASTE: 9.5/10

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 was subscribed to the FamilyPak, delivered monthly.

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