My snack box. What a tasty group of treats!
The product card provides a key identifying items which are All-Natual or Organic, Traditional Recipe, Family Business, Sustainably Grown, and/or Supports Local Community. There is also a story behind each item in the box.
Inka Corn Giant Roasted Corn ($11.32): Um, hello giant corn-nuts! These were the biggest corn kernels I’ve ever seen. From, Peru, these were my 2nd favorite snack in the box. Although reminiscent of Corn-nuts, these were less salty and slightly softer in texture. That’s not to say that they didn’t have crunch because they did. I got so excited about these that I forgot to take a picture of the bag before I devoured it. Sorry.
Mörsjö Deli Flatbread Crisps ($6): These were also in the May/June Taste the World box; see Brandy’s review here. I can’t say that my opinion of these matches hers. These are fried flatbread crisps from Sweden. They have a slightly nutty taste, but I found them a bit too oily for my liking. I think they would be good topped with a spread, and enjoyed them more when eaten with my chicken salad.
[Brandy says: !!! These are sooo good!]
Mondo di Laura Pepita Chocolate Cookies ($9): This is a rich, crispy cocoa-based cookie featuring pieces of dark chocolate and hints of pink Himalayan sea salt. Absolutely yummy!!! These were great with milk or a cup of coffee, or simply on their own. The sea salt was more of an aftertaste and helped to cut through the richness of the chocolate. I think I’ve found my new Italian obsession.
Kasugai Hard Candy ($3.64): I grew up eating these hard candies, and they are actually my sister’s favorite. They are a plum flavored milk candy from Japan. The formula seems to have changed a little since I was a child, and these were better than I remember. The flavor isn’t as bright as the Korean version, but that is because these have milk blended in. They are also known as Flower’s Kiss candies.
Sunshine Snacks Sun-Dried Figs ($2.59): I am not a fig lover, unless it comes in a Newton. I was hoping that these Turkish figs would change my views, but not so much. The flavor is good, but I didn’t like the chewy texture which makes the seeds more noticeable.
I calculated the value of this box to be just under $33, which is a fantastic value when compared to the cost of a single box. I liked the variety of snacks – while I didn’t enjoy everything, it was nice to experience something outside of the norm. However, I feel that the retail for the Inka Corn was high. I would not buy it at that retail if I saw it in the store, no matter how delicious I thought it was.
