MunchPak is a subscription box service that sends snacks from around the world right to your front door (if you live in the US or Canada) on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. The boxes range from the MunchPak Mini (which I received), to the Original MunchPak, to the FamilyPak.
Right up front: I was a little disappointed with my MunchPak. The selection was wide-ranging both in product and flavor, but I just wasn’t a fan of some of those flavors. I have to say though, from American products to Japanese to French, this box definitely ran the gamut. (And remember, all of these snacks came in the smallest box, the MunchPak Mini.)
Still, it wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. But that’s the nature of subscription boxes. Sometimes you hit gold, sometimes it’s just not exactly what you would have picked for yourself.
Let’s start with the good stuff first. I enjoyed Entemann’s Little Bites, Pocky (which John and I mindlessly devoured while watching TV on a rainy day), and Walker’s Chocolate Chip Shortbread. All three of those snacks are ones that I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy, but they’re ones that I was glad to have in the pantry as a special treat.
I wasn’t such a fan of Sour Raynitas, Bon Bons (even though they’re a product of France and I’m a francophile), Shrimp Chips, Las Gran Sandias, and Haribo Roulette. The flavors and textures just didn’t do it for me this time around. (After looking at the site, I was probably jaded. Some of the products they feature or Nutella and Cadbury. You know what I was crossing my fingers for!)
I will readily admit that it was a ton of fun to unpack the box and see which treats from which countries were there. It was great looking at the packaging and enjoying the differentness of everything!
