Our MunchPak shipment for March 2023. We had high hopes for this box as the previous couple of months had the highest score of any of out snack subscription boxes. As it turned out however we rated the box one of our all time lowest scores. Alex 6.44 out of 10 and Joe 6.13 out of 10. If this was one of our first MunchPak boxes we would probably have canceled our subscription as we do not like the fact that there is no theme to the box with the snacks coming from many different countries and not one location.
Mayasi Puff Paw – cheesy puff snack from Indonesia
Alex 9 Joe-6
Oh Ma Grain Sea Salt from Indonesia – puffed rice snack
Oishi Shrimp Chips from Indonesia
Kamyczki Orzechowe from Poland – sugar coated peanut candy
In our quest to try all sorts of packaged and canned treats that are a bit on the unusual side Alex and I purchased this can of Crown Prince crab meat out of Indonesia. My mother used to buy a similar product when I was a child and I did not like it at the time. We tried this product plain on some crackers to get a pure evaluation of the meat. Alex and I both found it extremely off-putting. The texture was not nice with tiny bits of shell or cartilage? giving a poor mouth feel. The flavor was reminiscent of a badly ventilated fish market and did not give any sense of freshness. 2 out of 10.
This is our first subscription box from MunchPak. The quality of the snacks were Okay but it was disappointing that the snacks were from many different locations rather than from a single country or region. There were more sweet snacks than savory than what we had seen in other subscription boxes. The box had one information card that described each snack and identified the country of origin. The box is acceptable if you just want a variety of snacks to sit down with in front of the TV but if you are planning on an educational element on different countries I would recommend another subscription service. Alex 7.40 out of 10 Joe 6.93 out of 10.

This is our last subscription box from Try the World. We got tied of the total lack of any descriptive documentation in the box. You have to use a magnifying glass to determine country of origin and it is not present all the time. This month we also got a duplicate item from the previous month’s box. This month we received items from Korea, Indonesia, Italy and the United States. The tea was again not identifiable.
Kimchi from South Korea
Cashew and Coconut from Indonesia
Cacao dusted cashew nuts from Indonesia
Bourbon infused coffee from the US – a duplicate item from last month’s box
Spice blend from the USA – very good, I use it routinely (quite spicy)
