Snack Fever is a monthly subscription box that delivers all your favorite Korean snacks, as well as other hard-to-find Korean treats. Each month, subscribers will get 5 to 12 Korean snacks and treats, depending on their subscription. Snack Fever is available in three boxes, the mini box, the original box, and the deluxe box, and subscriptions are $12, $20, and $40, respectively, every month. Going forward, the Snack Fever boxes will be themed. June’s theme is Curated by Team SnackFever.
Check out the fun new custom paper! It features various phrases including Straight Outta Koreatown, Koreatown (in Korean), and Thank You (also in Korean).
I wish that there had been a product information card in the box. However, you can click here to get a full listing of the items in each of June’s Snack Fever boxes. The new brochure is centered around the theme and features info on Team SnackFever. BTW, here’s a happy 1st anniversary shout out to Snack Fever!!!
It always amazes me how much goes into this box.
Lotte Cantata Premium Latte Coffee Drink: This latte is made from 100% Arabica bean coffee. It is lightly sweetened and has a hint of vanilla. I’d compare this to canned/bottled coffee drinks by brands like Caribou or Illy.
Woongin Pineapple Juice Drink: This is similar to the peach drink that I received in last month’s box. If you like pineapple, you’ll like this. Along with pineapple juice, this contains little pieces of fruit in the drink.
Haitai Candy Kitchen Fruit & Vegetable Hard Candy: Even though I love fruit/veggie juices, I thought the flavor combinations of these were a bit off-putting when I saw the bag. So glad I tried these despite my initial response. These hard candies are yummy! The fruit flavors stand out and leave just a hint of veggie in the background. Among family members, there was a tie between the carrot & apple and broccoli & kiwi for favorite.
Orion Aye-Shyuh Candy: Aye-Shyuh = It’s so sour! This is a chewy candy with a VERY sour filling. The chewy layer is melon (?) flavored and doesn’t prepare you for the shock that’s inside.
Lotte Kkokal Corn Honey Butter Chips: Such a great salty/sweet combo in this snack. They reminded me of a buttery version of original Bugles with a bit of honey. I literally had to walk away from these so that I didn’t eat the whole bag in one sitting. I couldn’t top Brandy’s pictures from her Original Box review, so I didn’t try.
Haitai Ja-Yoo Shi-Gan Chocolate Cookie Bar: Ja-Yoo Shi-Gan = Free Time. There are several varieties of this bar. This one features a chocolate cookie center (think Oreo) with an outer coating of chocolate. These are a few of my favorite things all in one snack. I need more of these in my life.
Cookie Chef Choco Waffle: If you dip your waffle cone in chocolate, that is what you’d get. Each box contains 2 inner packs with 3 waffles. Not very much if you’ve got a sweet tooth like my family.
Lotte Original Harvest Crackers: These crackers are made from whole grains and sesame seeds. They have a light dusting of sugar crystals on top of each cracker for a bit of sweetness. I love sesame crackers, so these were a win for me. They’d probably be delish with some peanut butter too (ooh, new snack idea).
HB Chicken Macho Teriyaki Ramyun Snack: I like uncooked ramyun noodles, and often break up a pack for a snack. I was excited to try these for that reason. However, these were disappointing. They reminded me of the fried noodles you get with Chinese takeout. Also, the teriyaki flavor was way too sweet for my taste.
Jayone Roasted Black Rice with Pumpkin Seed & Almond Snack: My favorite snack in the box, by far! Scorched rice is a traditional Korean snack, and one of my all time faves growing up. The slight char and crunch of the rice work together to create deliciousness. This mildly sweet snack achieves those flavors with black rice and adds pumpkin seeds and almonds for additional crunch and protein.
Crown Sando Chocolate Biscuit: I received the strawberry version of this in last month’s box. The chocolate version isn’t as sweet and the chocolate flavor is mild. Still, a tasty treat.
Ottogi Vegetable Rice Porridge Mix: My mom used to make rice porridge for us when we were sick, so this is comfort food for me. I’m happy to be able to make a quick version for myself with this packet.
Ottogi Vegetable Tuna: This tuna is blended with onions, carrots, red peppers and other veggies to make an easy side dish. It will pair well with the rice porridge to make a full meal.
*BONUS* Message Memo Pad: How cute is this mini notepad?!? It actually stands on your desk like an easel. This is totally going to work with me. I’m kinda obsessed with notes, especially the sticky ones.
I would have preferred the Snack Myun from the Original Box instead of the Chicken Macho I received, but otherwise the June Snack Fever Deluxe Box was full of tasty treats that made me happy. Snack Fever is the one box that all of my family gets excited for. We love sharing familiar snacks and discovering some new ones too.
