Snack Crate is a monthly subscription that provides the most interesting snacks and features new and exciting places from around the globe. They offer three sizes of box: the $14 mini with 5 snacks, the $26 original box with 10-12 snacks, and the $49 premium box with 18-20 snacks.
We switched our box from the crazy gigantic premium box to the original box. I admit, I’m having some FOMO about it!
When you sign up, your first box will be from a country of your choice. You have the option of adding a drink for $6, which I think is a pretty pricey option, and I passed.
Each month, there are also stickers that represent the featured country.
For April 2018, we got snacks from The Netherlands!
The information leaflet features fun facts from NETHERLANDS.
It lists all the snack items inside the box, which are grouped into different box levels: Mini, Original, and Premium.
Aside from Premium, you’ll also see some drink upgrades printed on the leaflet.
The leaflet is so detailed, providing necessary information every consumer should need to know about the treats.
All the nutritional content of each item is shown at the back of the leaflet.
The box is full of treats!
The postcard features beautiful scenery from the Netherlands with the word #Lekker, which means very nice and sometimes it also translates as “a sweet thing”!
Everything in this month’s box!
Daelmans Stroopwafel Cookie In Caramel ($5.80) We received two individually wrapped waffle cookies with a sweet and creamy caramel filling. It could be paired with a hot beverage but it’s already filling on its own!
The crunchy waffle and rich smooth caramel filling combination is so perfect. You can rest the snack on top of your coffee or tea to make the inside melty.
Rademaker Hopjes Coffee Candies ($0.77) These coffee candies are named after Baron Hendrik Hop, a coffee enthusiast. They’re primarily made with coffee, caramel, cream, and butter.
We received 5 of them in the box and, of course, they’re enjoyed by my husband. According to him, it does not stick and does not go soft over time.
Lays Wokkels Paprika ($4.29) Potato twists are the best! These delightfully crispy Wokkels from Lays are flavored with paprika, making them utterly irresistible!
Each cracker is spiral in shape. They’re generously flavored so they do have that spicy kick, but nothing too overwhelming. They’re crunchy too! This would be a great snack when watching TV!
Smoeltjes Ufo’s Cookies. These UFO cookies are an instant hit with the kids. Each cookie has a milk filling and a chocolate layer on top.
There are also colorful crispy chocolate candies as toppings!
The cookie is small but really yummy. I wish we had more because the kids really loved this!
Cote D’Or Reep Melk. Côte d’Or is known as one of the largest producers of the most delicious Belgian chocolate in the world!
Look at that solid chocolate bar! It’s rich, but it easily melts in the mouth.
From the bottom, you’ll see that the bar is indeed filled with hazelnuts.
The crunch from the hazelnut and the richness of chocolate make one satisfying treat!
Katja Original Sour Zour Matjes. Apparently, Dutch people also love sour and chewy candies! We got a pack of them, and it was made with natural strawberry flavors.
Each piece is fully covered with sour sugar. Each piece is chewy and extremely sour. Good thing, it’s gluten-free!
Peijnenberg Ontbijtkoek. This delicious gingerbread is made from all natural ingredients. It’s low fat, high fiber, and magnesium-rich.
It’s lightweight and a bit moist. The bread is filling and I think it’ll be great for a quick breakfast together with juice or some hot beverage!
De Smurfen Knetter Sticks. Did you know that The Smurfs are connected to the Dutch? Well, the word smurf is apparently the original Dutch translation of the French word schtroumpf. My kids love The Smurfs and they were delighted to give this treat a try!
The side of the box features Clumsy Smurf, Papa Smurf, and Smurfette. They also give different translations of the word smurf in other languages.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the snack was made in the signature color of The Smurfs? Well, at least the plastic container is in blue!
Still, we’re head over heels with these milk chocolate sticks. They’re thick and so creamy!
Venco Eurolijn Muntendrop. We also received a pack of coin-shaped candy made of pure licorice extract, salmiak, and a balanced herbal flavor.
The taste is quite unique. If you love licorice candy, you’ll probably like these too. Engraved on the top of the candies is the brand logo.
Koetjes Reep Original. This bar is made of a cocoa mixture with hydrogenated vegetable fats, lactose, and skim milk powder. There are two in our box.
You can break each bar into four pieces, so you can share it with others. It’s a great balance between milky and chocolate-y!
Look-O-Look Zure Regenboogmatten ($2.17) More sour strips for the sour candy lovers! These are fruit flavored and they come in striped colors!
One pack consists of 20 pieces of sour sugar coated strips. They are super sour, but they’re still enjoyable and fun to eat.
Every Snack Crate is jampacked, they make sure that you really get a taste of a certain country through their treats – whether it’s sweet, sour, savory, or salty. I’m always impressed with how much they pack in one box! This month is all about The Netherlands and there’s no other word to describe everything but lekker! Who would have thought local snacks would be such a great way of getting to know a country and its culture? So far, my favorites are the chocolates! I also liked that they threw in a couple of “kids” treats because it’s always interesting seeing things from all parts of the snack spectrum.
