I think my new favorite subscription box arrived at my front door—technically, it did. Mike from MunchPak emailed me about sending a box [free], and I accepted (ahem, read my disclaimer). (I almost declined, because I’ve been getting the strangest offers lately, but their website seemed legit. Also, they’re nut allergy-friendly, meaning they will try to send you a nut-free box if nuts are what you do not prefer.)
To support my subscription box addiction, if you make a purchase via these links, I will earn a small percentage of the sale—at no extra cost to you, of course! See my disclosure page for more info.
I received a Umaibo Corn Puff Vegetable Salad Flavor, a Choco Pie from Lotte/Happy Promise, Bourbon Petit Soft Choco Cookies (Shittori), Mini Zombie Nitro Flavor Takis from Mexico (habanero and cucumber), a package 7 Days Bake Rolls (cheese), a 7 Days Double Max (vanilla flavor & strawberry fillings), a pouch of Velikovi Salt Sticks with Olives, a pouch of Haribo Starmix, a bag of Wellmade Chewies (fruit-filled), and a box of Lotte Kancho Choco Biscuits.
My box was surprisingly entertaining, and it was put together by Karen. :3
MunchPak is a subscription service that sends out boxes of snacks from around the world on a monthly basis. They ship internationally, and I imagine the international boxes may contain USA-based snacks.
Of all the snacks in the box, only three had tree nuts in them. I really enjoyed the fruit chews and the Bourbon Petit Soft Choco Cookies (purple package), which tasted like brownies. The
cheesy paprika vegetable salad stick (clown-looking character in polka dots next to the Takis) was so great, and I was too excited to wait for my camera to turn on that I ate it first…and then I kept eating it. I really love cheese, so. My bad, I just learned it was vegetable salad-flavored. I still want more! >.> ‘Tis not like I could help it.
I snapped a pic of it before it was opened, however, via my phone:
Whilst I find the value of international snacks I can’t easily find elsewhere far outweighs the difference of the actual value of the box, the actual value of this box, a MunchPak Original, is $20. The cost of a MunchPack Original is $19.95 and includes 10+ full-sized products/mo.
It’s quite rare to find subscription box companies who are up for catering to those who can’t have nuts, and these people try—and they do deliver.
The lowest price of a nut-free, or almost nut-free, snack box of merely 5 sample-to-full-sized products I have found in all my searching is literally the price of a MunchPak Original. The lowest price of a nut-free, or almost nut-free, snack box of 5 full-sizes products I have ever found is $23.99.
In a sea of subscription boxes that are ALL about the nuts, MunchPak is that rare commodity that is the lowest costing nut-free-friendly subscription box, and I would subscribe to them. I’m on a short subscription sabbatical right now because holidays, but don’t be mega-surprised if you see more posts featuring MunchPak on here, because…well, #nutfree.
Also, it’s like getting to travel the world without ever leaving your room, or flying…if you’re afraid of flying.
From now until 16th October, you can try a MunchPak Mini for $4.95 using “MM65464”.
I’ll update this if/when there is a new coupon available. 🙂

MunchPak: June 2016 | Janepedia
[…] MunchPak has become my favorite subscription boxes out of the others, because it allows me to receive international snacks that lack nuts. For the longest while, I’ve wanted to try the international snack subscription boxes, but there was always the risk of paying for nothing but nuts. It’s a dollar extra for the no nuts option, but I think it’s worth it. […]
