I thought that for my first post here I would do an unboxing. I'm always on the hunt for a fun subscription box and when I came across Snack Crate I was excited. I love snacks and especially snacks from different countries. There are multiple versions of these boxes you can get and the one I purchased, the mini, came with six snacks, two bags of chips and four sweets. The first snack we have is Walker's French Fries in Worcester Sauce flavor. I know that Walker's is Lay's UK division so I figured it would be a solid chip. I was super intrigued by these because of the flavor. I like Worcester sauce so I was hopeful that I would like these and I definitely do. These look exactly like French fries, they're light and crispy and the flavor is spot on. They're tangy and savory and I would definitely buy a bigger bag of these.
The second bag of chips is the Nando's Peri-Peri Chicken Grooves. I watch quite a lot of British YouTubers so I hear a lot about Nando's and it's on my list of places to eat in the UK. I did recently learn that there are Nando's in the US, shout out to Good Food Bad Food for the info. It's more of an East Coast thing so I have no experience with them but I know in select grocery stores they sell some sauces and other products. These are groove cut, so they're similar to Ruffles. Taste wise I would compare these to Chicken Top Ramen but with more spice. They're very peppery with a citrus hint.
Moving on to the sweet side, the first thing we have is Millions Vimto. I had to do a little bit of research on this one because I didn't know what Vimto was. For those that don't know, it's a juice drink with grapes, raspberries and blackcurrants. These are chewy candy balls and they're pretty good. Now that I've had these I'd like to try a glass of Vimto and see what it's like in juice form.
Now we have the Wham Original Bar. This is a taffy bar that is really fruity, tangy and has little sour pieces that give it a great pop of flavor. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would and this is the type of candy I would go for if I wanted something fruity.
The second to last candy we have is Cadbury Twirl. We do have Cadbury in the US, but it's not the exact same products. Because I do love Cadbury chocolate, I was excited to see this. You get two in the pack and what these are is milk chocolate fingers that are flaked on the inside, then covered in smooth chocolate on the outside. This has to be one of the best candy bars I've had. It's really light and soft on the inside and you get a really great, true chocolate flavor. I highly recommend trying one of these if you haven't.
And the last candy we have is the Cadbury Crunchie. I've heard a lot about these and always thought that it sounded interesting because it's chocolate on the outside and honeycomb on the inside. I personally haven't had any experience with honeycomb flavored candy, but this is really good. It's light, brown sugary and sweet without being overly sweet. I 100% would eat this again.
That about wraps it up for this post, overall I quite like Snack Crate and this is something I would do again.
Until next time, you can never try too many subscription boxes and enjoy your snacks :).
