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 the 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.
They also included a note about how you can enjoy the contents of the box better. Since heat can affect the conditions of the items, make sure that you place the contents in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours before you start enjoying them.
Each month, there are also stickers that represent the featured country.
For May 2018, we got snacks from Israel!
The information leaflet features fun facts about ISRAEL.
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.
It’s great that the nutritional content of the products here is already listed in the leaflet. This helps you understand how much calories you’re taking in with these snacks.
The box is full of treats!
The postcard features beautiful scenery from Israel with the word #Shalom.
Everything in this month’s box!
Osem Bissli Pizza ($3.91) It’s a pizza-flavored wheat snack which is kosher and vegan with no artificial coloring or preservatives in it.
They look like tiny waffles to me, and each piece was savory and crunchy. They were less pizza-ey than I expected but a fun and interesting snack.
Achva Halva ($0.80) Halva is a popular Mediterranean treat. It’s made with sesame paste, sugar, and natural Turkish spice.
This snack has a white top and a light brown bottom.
It’s not too dry nor too moist, just pure deliciousness. The halva is just a bit sweet. and crumbly. Also, it’s kosher-friendly.
Pesek Zman ($1.88) This kosher chocolate bar tastes wonderful. It’s basically a wafer snack covered in rich chocolate.
It was slightly melted during transport, but we put it in the fridge for a couple of hours and now it’s good to go.
It’s like Nutella and KitKat in one bar. The wafer, milk chocolate, and almond crème combination is just perfect. It didn’t take too long before this sweet treat disappeared!
Lieber’s Aleph Beis Cookies – Letters from the Jewish alphabet are featured on these yummy cookies.
The cookies are beautifully done and the letters of the Hebrew alphabet are easily recognizable too. My kids enjoyed them!
Elite Yogurt Hard Candy ($16.67) There were five pieces of these hard candies in our box. They’re sugar-free and they come in two flavors: strawberry yogurt and blueberry yogurt.
These candies are a bit fruity. They’re delicious without being overly sweet.
Elite Chocolate Log – It’s a chocolate bar carefully crafted to simulate the appearance of a real log.
It does look like a log! This is made of sweet and creamy milk chocolate, which easily satisfied my sweet tooth.
Osem Bamba Peanut Snack ($0.46) Bamba is a peanut butter flavored puffed snack that was baked without any food coloring or preservatives.
Each piece is light and airy, and it easily melts in the mouth too. I love the salty and peanuty taste! A favorite, for sure.
Osem Bissli Falafel ($0.56) Ideal as a lunch box snack, these wheat sticks are crunchy and savory.
This snack is kosher, vegan, and doesn’t have any artificial coloring or preservatives in it. It’s salted just right and I like that it’s bite-sized too. I don’t know if it really really tastes like felafel, but I love it nonetheless!
Elite Shtix Each box of Shtix contains eight milk chocolate sticks that are filled with popping candies as well as milk flavored cream. Yum!
Each chocolate stick has a different packaging design!
The chocolate is rich and smooth!
When you bite into it, you’ll get the taste of chocolate and popping candies at the same time. It’s unusual for sure, but you won’t be able to stop yourself from eating it.
Elite Tortit ($2.25) Tortit is a wafer snack covered in chocolate. It’s great as an on-the-go snack.
The chocolate coating is dark in color, but it tastes a bit sweet.
The wafer has almond cream as filling, which makes it even tastier.
Klik In Cream Bar ($2.08) Another chocolate-covered snack is included in the box and it’s commonly known in Israel as Klik In. Compared to the previous chocolate bars, this one has a creamier and milkier taste.
The coating was uneven, but it was surely delicious.
Break the stick and you’ll see the layering of the chocolate, white chocolate, wafer, and more milk cream in the middle. It’s an addicting snack!
Oodles Tiny Tangy Fruity Chews In Blue Raspberry ($3.17) These are chewy candies in raspberry flavor. It’s tiny, it’s tangy, and my kids love it!
Tiny Tangy Fruity Chews In Green Apple ($1.83) We also received the chews in green apple flavor. It perfectly captured a tangy fruity green apple taste!
These candies can be put in a small bowl for a fun snack while everyone is watching TV!
Leiber’s Fruit Toffee ($2.83 Full Size 1 pack 7oz.) There are five pieces of these fruit flavored toffee in the box. It’s a famous kosher snack for Passover and it comes in different flavors such as green apple, orange, and strawberry.
Snack Crate has curated some amazing snacks from Israel. Many of these are not easy to come by in the US and if we do, they’re usually a little expensive. There were lots of chocolates in the box and all of them tasted great. We’re happy about the inclusion of kid-friendly treats too, as well as the savory snacks. Of course, an Israel themed snack box wouldn’t be complete without a halva. The one they sent in this box is really delicious and I wish we could get more! As usual, Snack Crate is jampacked, so we’re satisfied. It’s a subscription for snackers who want a great variety of treats every month!
