There’s a card that includes new Korean vocabulary words, as well as selfies of subscribers with their Snack Fever boxes.

The box also comes with a booklet featuring the theme of the box on the cover. Inside it is a list of items, plus a brief description about each of them.

Here are all the items included in this month’s SnackFever!

You can also see what is included in their other boxes, like the RamyunFever and DoshirakFever boxes.

It even shows what bonus items can be expected in each box.

The printed product information sheet is back! See what’s in each of the different SnackFever boxes for the month, along with a description of each.

I still am amazed by how much comes in each box. Here are the full contents of January’s Original box. To see all of our SnackFever reviews, click here.

Bokjumeoni. This custom made pouch is known in Korea as bokjumeoni or a fortune pouch. Traditionally, they use it to keep money given out by elders during the Lunar New Year celebration.

Gift Card. This card entitles you to $10 off when you purchase anything from KORE, a clothing line that is inspired by the Korean culture and lifestyle.

BTS Pop Up Card. This pop-up card features popular Korean boy group BTS. From top left, there’s Suga, JHope, and Jimin, then below from the left are Jungkook, Jin, RM, and V.

It comes with an envelope so you can send it to a friend who is a BTS fan. But if you’re an ARMY too, of course you are free to keep it for yourself!

Even the back of the card is filled with cute group shots of the boys!

When you open the card, a group photo with a heart-shaped frame will pop up! There’s also plenty of space inside the card where you can write a message.

Myeongnana Mayo Chips. This bag of mayo chips has a tangy flavor that I’m not sure was quite pleasant!

It looks pretty much the same as any other potato chip snack, but it really tastes a lot like mayo. My 3 year old demolished the bag.

Cup Kkokalcorn. This corn snack comes in a cup with a peel off lid keeping your snack safe all the way from Korea!

Each piece is cone-shaped and it should be patently obvious why my family calls them K-Bugles! They have a rich savory corny taste that makes it quite addicting to eat.

Monster Bing Bing. Here’s something for the sweet tooth! It’s a snack made of a crispy cone with a chocolate filling.

Each cone snack is individually packed, making it great for sharing!

It reminds me of an ice cream cone but the good thing is that it doesn’t melt! This snack is similar to Japanese Caplico from Glico.

Lotte Pepero Calamansi Yogurt. I really love this snack! These are biscuit sticks with a very generous coating of calamansi yogurt. For some reason I haven’t had a lot of calamansi, but it’s out of this world. This summer I had a calamansi pie in Hawaii and just about died it was so good. This brought back the flavor for me for sure!

It’s also individually packed to avoid the biscuits from becoming soft in case you can’t consume the whole lot in one sitting.

Calamansi yogurt is the first Pepero flavor to be made by artificial intelligence. The AI analyzed trends from thousands of websites and millions of consumer reports, then came up with the idea. This side of the box featured an explanation about the process in Korean.

Unfortunately, the sticks broke during transit but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a yummy snack to munch on!

Kakao Friends Jelly Ppo. It’s a jelly snack inspired by the characters from Kakao Talk. We received Ryan, the maneless lion.

The jelly is mango flavored. It’s so soft and sweet!

My Gummy Peach Flavor. I’m loving the flavor and texture of this peach-flavored gummy snack.

Each piece is chewy, and peach shaped too! Do I need to tell you again that Korean fruit candy is the best fruit candy?

Corn-Stick Cow Bong Milk. This is a crunchy snack made of corn with a milk yogurt flavored filling.

It looks like a log, but it’s really delicious especially the creamy center. It was milky and the whole thing was like eating cereal.

Tok Tok Candy. Kids love this fun treat! It’s a lollipop candy with a powdered dip and, when you put it in your mouth, it pops!

The lollipop is foot-shaped while the popping rocks look like pink salt. I loved it too!

White Angel Chocolates. This premium chocolate bar features Disney Princess Belle on the packaging. Contrary to the chocolate’s name, it’s not white chocolate but milk chocolate.

The way this chocolate bar was divided is quite unique! Hello Mondrian Disney Chocolates! (It was also high quality and quite tasty!)

Victory Pie. Made of a grapefruit jam sandwiched between 2 soft biscuits, this snack is perfect as an added treat to lunchboxes.

The words vic and big both sound identical in the Korean language, but Vic Pie got its name because it was supposed to mean “pie with a wish for victory.”

The letter V is even engraved on one side of the biscuit…

…while the other side is covered with chocolate. It’s a perfect snack to send in time for the Pyeongchang games! I absolutely love grapefruit and hadn’t sampled this delicious treat before, so I was pumped it was in the box!

Koreans have really interesting snacks, and Snack Fever never fails to provide us with a great variety of them every month — from chips and biscuits to candies and chocolates. If you’re a fan of Korean food, this subscription is a great way of discovering new brands to love. They also often include Kpop/Kdrama bonus items plus language lessons, making it a well rounded box that can feed your interest in the country’s local culture.
