Snack Fever boxes are now themed – it’s a collaboration with Lotte – the premier Korean snack/sweets brand!

There’s also a Korean word to learn and you can practice writing it on the card. To understand mok-bang I think you need to read this article.

You’ll also get to see the contents of the other Snack Fever boxes. The pages show what’s inside the Mini and Original Boxes (the back side shows the Premium box – but Summer’s review will cover that one!).

Everything in my October Box!

Snack Fever Stickers: This vampire cutie came at the end of the month and we happily used him in our Halloween decorations!

Malang Cow Candy: Chewy milk candy – it’s like a very soft taffy or gum, with of course a milk flavor! This was really tasty and not what you get in the US normally!

Scotch Almond: Lotte’s version of this candy is almond flavored scotch candy with a nice whole almond on top! Super good and enough to share.

Lotte Anytime Candy: This was an odd candy and I was surprised that I’d never sampled it before – It’s a hard candy and part of it is milky and the other part is minty. It was quite tasty although super unusual!

Lotte Binch Cookies: Yum! Many Korean snacks (Lotte’s in particular!) are Euro-inspired and these are quite similar to Le Petit Ecolier.

A buttery biscuit/cookie is topped with dark chocolate. It’s delicious – I never tire of this particular combo.

Lotte Sand Original Pineapple Flavor: These pineapple sandwich cookies have a great flavor!

snack-fever-october-2016-11

Lotte Ghana Mild Chocolate: We like this chocolate bar – which is as popular in South Korea as Hershey’s bars are here – especially around the holiday. It has a really nice darker chocolate and is named after the bean source!

snack-fever-october-2016-12

Lotte Choco Pie Cacao: This is a fantastic twist on choco pie (which is very much like a moon pie!) – the cakey biscuit is chocolate instead of vanilla, and as usual sandwiches a nice marshmallow layer and the whole thing is covered in chocolate coating.

snack-fever-october-2016-14

Trevi Grapefruit Drink: This had a fresh, natural grapefruit taste! I love grapefruit anything – hard to go wrong with this one for me (although I can’t say I expected a grapefruit water in this box!).

snack-fever-october-2016-15

Lotte Vegetable Cracker: I sort of squealed when I opened this box and saw these. They’re one of my favorite Korean snacks – like a buttery Ritz except veggie flavored. I can’t think of any true analogs here in the US and they’re hard to find, so this nice big package was a win!

snack-fever-october-2016-16

Teumsae Ramyun: Well holy crap, this was HOT! You can buy a 5-pack on Amazon if you want to try it out but I was happy to split this one package with my husband. Zowie.

Kkokkalcorn Roasted Corn Flavor: These are just like Bugles, but Koreans have all sorts of tasty sweet and savory flavors (nothing totally insane like they are here – they’re more of a serious snack food).

snack-fever-october-2016-18

Except, you know, you can put them on your fingers!

Lotte Kancho Choco Biscuits

snack-fever-october-2016-19

Yummy! These little biscuits have printed illustrations and chocolate cream in the center.

This was one of my favorite editions of Snack Fever ever – and I wouldn’t expect anything less with this Lotte collab! It’s pretty much all the best Korean goodies! Good news, Lotte treats are in pretty much ever Snack Fever because they dominate the snack market in South Korea. We decimated this box pretty quickly and are already impatiently awaiting our next box!
