SnackCrate | South Korea Edition

SnackCrate South Korea Box Of Snacks - Em's Editorial
It’s safe to say since Jim came along that we haven’t had a holiday in a while.

Even our Honeymoon this year has had to be put on hold thanks to the outbreak of Coronavirus. Thankfully it’s only been put on hold instead of cancelled, and to be honest I’d rather us wait until things are pretty much back to normal rather than taking that chance and travelling in the midst of a pandemic!

That being said, a few months ago I’d decided that we did deserve a little treat at least – and what better treat than an assortment of different snacks from around the world? That’s where Snackcrate comes in – a box of treats from a different country around the world each month! It’s really simple to sign up for too – all you have to do is pick between three sizes (mini, original or family size) and each month when a new country is selected, that box will be shipped out to you right from the source!

The first box I received was from South Korea, and let me tell you I was super excited to receive it. Originally when you sign up, you get to take a quiz to pick your first starter box from a few preselected countries – I ended up going with Hawaii, and then signed up to receive that months box also. But as fate would have it, I ended up receiving my South Korea subscription box before my Hawaii one had even been dispatched thanks to Covid!

Each box comes with a little fact sheet about that months country, giving you a little overview and some fun facts. Did you know that apparently South Koreans love shopping so much that most stores are open until 4am? Or that when they pose for pictures they will say ‘kimchi’ instead of ‘cheese’? There’s even a QR code with a link to a playlist of Korean music – how cool is that?

Anyway, I’d gone for the ‘Original’ size box for us all to share – so let’s get on to the snacks shall we?

Overall, we were pretty happy with our South Korea Snackcrate – there were so many sweet treats to choose from, that it’s genuinely hard to select a favourite. For me it would probably have to be the Gummy Grape – they were so delicious and full of flavour that I couldn’t help but pretty much scoff the entire pack. Meanwhile I think Liam’s favourite was the Tiramisu Cookie – coffee and chocolate with a bit of cream cheese? Yes please! Jim however was more of a fan of the Pepero White Cookie sticks, and I can’t blame him for constantly asking for more!

What do you think to the Snackcrate box? Would you buy the South Korea version? What snack does it have you desperate to try? Let me know in the comments below!
