The Korean Snack Box is monthly subscription box dedicated to all K-Pop fans who love to enjoy eating Korean snacks while watching their favorite K-drama. The subscription starts at $14.95 each month (Medium and Large boxes available), with free worldwide shipping. Each box comes in a beautiful Bokjumeoni (traditional Korean silk bag) with 5-10 or 10-15 items and tasters.

First look inside the box!

This month’s Bokjumeoni is in dark pink and white. The Korean silk bag represents good fortune and it is also reusable as a purse, pouch, or even as a makeup bag!

Also included is a note from the curators!

Everything in my box!

Market O Real Brownie. At first bite, this chocolate brownie reminded me of the taste of a Snickers bar. It is made using 52% real chocolate, 10% butter, and 13% eggs.

The brownie was moist and sweet. It’s perfect with coffee for a light but filling afternoon snack.

Lotte Strawberry Candy. Soft candies and stawberries are my thing, so these made me happy.

The candies were gooey and creamy, but not overly sweet. I shared these with my brother and he said it also smells like cotton candy.

Orion Choco Pie. Regarded as Korea’s national snack, choco pie is basically a marshmallow-filled bread covered in chocolate. I remember this particular brand so well because it is in one of the most iconic scenes of 2016’s most popular Kdrama Descendants of the Sun!

Like the brownie, I think this will be great with coffee. I love the soft marshmallow center, it melts in the mouth!

Pepero Vanilla Black Cookie. Pepero is another no-fail Korean favorite. It’s similar to Japan’s Pocky, but I like Pepero more because it’s bigger and tastier.

Koreans love Pepero so much that they even celebrate Pepero Day every November 11. On this day, they give boxes of Pepero to a loved one as a sign of affection. This particular box even has a space at the back where you can write a heartfelt message!

The biscuit sticks are securely packaged to ensure its freshness.

This one wasn’t overly sweet and it also has a nice crunch to it!

Pepero Original Chocolate. It’s the classic chocolate-covered Pepero!

There’s a lot of it in the pack, but I downed it in one sitting because that’s how much I love this snack.

It’s generously lathered with chocolate! Yummy!

Pepero Almond. Saving the best for last! Pepero Almond is my all-time favorite variant!

I mean, no one could go wrong with chocolate and almonds, right?

I could really taste actual almonds on these biscuit sticks. Also, I emptied the pack even before I got to start watching my daily Kdrama fix and I have no regrets.

I like how most of the selections for this month go well with coffee, and I think they’re also great as on-the-go snacks as much as they’re suitable as binge-watching snacks. It’s hard to pick a favorite because I just love everything!

    Me and my friends have the Korean snacks box sub and bring it to our Kdrama marathons. So funny last week when we rewatched Decendants of the sun and ate choco pie while Joonggi gifted the Choco pie in the scene ^^ We always get the best Korean snacks in this box and its great value. I loved January box the most with the Korean new year theme. Arent you going to post that box review also? Btw this is the november box not october.
