Munchpak currently ships to the U.S. and Canada. Orders are shipped within 48 hours once you sign up...something I really appreciated after having to wait around for up to a month for some other subscription boxes.
March was my second month for this subscription. I received eight items, a lot less than last month, but the items are larger and there are more full size snacks than in my last box. As you can see from the photos, this is a FUN box to open!
The first item was a pair of Double Barrel Cooked Salami Sticks. I know that a lot of people like these but they are not to my taste. There is a full size box of "Fruit Pastilles" by Rowntrees. I believe this is a U.K. company that is part of Nestle's. These are fruit flavored chews coated in a very fine sugar, like a very chewy jelly bean. I liked them a lot!
Next is a big package of cinnamon hard candies by Kasugai. The writing is almost all in Japanese (I think) so I can't tell you much about them. They taste very much like red hots but are slightly milder in flavor. They are rectangular in shape and yellowish in color so the taste is a little unexpected. I like these and am happy to say the package is big enough to last me a long time.
Another snack from Rowntree's is a package of "Randoms", which are chewy fruit flavored candies in weird shapes; I see a foot, a paint brush, a puzzle piece and a jack on the front. Well named!
The heaviest item in my box is a big package of licorice candies by Bassett's. Bassett's is a Cadbury U.K. brand. This package is full of colorful licorice candies in many different forms that I haven't seen before. Unfortunately for me, I don't like licorice. But I know someone who loves it so this package will be a nice gift for them.
Next is a package of cookies with a strawberry jam filling from Malaysia. The writing is all foreign but as with the cinnamon candies, there is a nutrition label in English on the back. Inside the package are eight individually wrapped cookies. These are soft cookies with a mild strawberry flavor...quite tasty!
There is a roll of "Refreshers" by Barratt, which I believe is another U.K. company. These are described on the package as "fruity flavored fizzy sweets". They remind me of Sweet Tarts, but are a little larger, softer and slightly less tart. The package of "Chewits" I received are the fruit salad flavor. These are the same size and shape as Starburst but considerably chewier. They have a nice mild fruit flavor.
So there you have it! There are a LOT of fruit flavors in my box this month which is o.k. with me. I'm just remembering that last month's box had quite a bit of chocolate in it. I did not review the February box, but for quick reference, here's a photo:
As you can see, the variety and quantity were quite different with a lot of smaller items. You really just don't know what you'll get in a Munchpak and that's what I love about it!
