product review: munchpak #2

I was lucky enough to review MunchPak before but someone from their team reached out for a second review. MunchPak is a subscription box service that sends you a box full of snacks. There is a variety of snacks inside some are candy, chocolate and even some salty treats like chips. I received the MunchPak Original. This offering includes 10 or more items for only $19.95. Don’t fret! If you want fewer snacks or more snacks you can always opt in or out. The MunchPak Mini will cost you $9.95 for five or six snacks. The FamilyPak costs $39.95 is the best value and includes 20 or more items. The snacks included are from all over. You might find Canadian snacks but you will also get to try stuff from Asia, the UK and all over!  MunchPak will even ship worldwide but of course, shipping rates will vary depending on where you live.

They even have their own shop so you can purchase the items you loved – or find new ones and purchase by item if you’re not into the idea of a surprise or mystery!

So here is what I received in my second MunchPak! PS. You can save $3 off your own MunchPak by using promo code “boywhoblogs

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Peanut Butter Bugles (USA)
These were actually unreal! I loved them. I was a bit skeptical at first because they are Bugles and I’m used to the original. The chocolate peanut butter flavouring was very good. I really liked these.

Doritos Pizzerolas (Mexico)
These were different… not bad but I wouldn’t buy them. Doritos has so many amazing flavours but I wouldn’t consider the Pizzerolas flavour one their best. I did, however, finish the bag. The pizza taste is not the same as what you would taste in a pizza flavoured Pringle.

Boston Baked Beans (Mexico)
Well, these aren’t beans. They are more of a novelty, gag item. The beans are actually candy coated peanuts. I didn’t enjoy the candy coating at all but the peanuts weren’t bad! I didn’t and won’t finish these.

Bebeto Wacky Sticks Strawberry Flavor (Turkey)
Without a question one of my favourite items! I love wacky sticks and strawberry flavoured snacks. These were really good and I noticed that you get a good amount of straws in the package. These are similar to the candy straws available in Canada.

Skawa Orange Yogurt Dragees (Poland)
These little balls were just alright. One of the two items I didn’t finish and probably won’t. They aren’t bad or anything, just not my favourite. They have a harder coating and a light yogurt-like creamy inside.

White & Red Flag Caramel Heaven Wafers (Poland)
This was disgusting good. I love caramel and wafers are great. I had to eat this in like four sitting because it was a bit much. Great tasting product but not something I would regularly buy if they were readily available in Canada.

Dragonfly Lotus Tea (Vietnam)
To be honest, drinking a tea without reading the label scares me and I’ve yet to build up the courage to try this. Lotus tea has its health benefits and is supposed to be a sweet, fruity tea.

Rowntrees Fruit Pastilles (United Kingdom)
Within my top three for sure. I love Rowntrees products and generally seem to enjoy candy and chocolate from the UK. The best way to describe these would be like a sugar-coated wine gum.

Nestle Morochas Cookies (USA)
These weren’t bad but nothing to rant and rave over. I’m not a huge cookie lover.

Yaokin Cola Candy Straws (Japan)
These sour cola straws were delicious! One of my favourites, they were cola flavoured which was interesting.

experience a psychic/medium reading

My aunt had planned to have a psychic/medium come to her place for a “psychic party.” Everyone who came for a reading waited on the main level of the floor, we were snacking away at delicious treats and others were discussing their past experiences with having a reading done. Some were sharing stories from what they had heard from the psychic/medium that day. This was my first time having a psychic/medium reading done so I was definitely super interested, slightly terrified but without a doubt – excited for mine!

I had to wait for two others to have their readings done before my own. Each was an hour long.  When it was my turn, I went upstairs into the spare bedroom and sat down. The lady who was doing the reading was sitting at a card table with a few different decks of cards in front of her. When I came in she was on her flip phone, texting a friend and made a joke about how she wasn’t tech savvy at all and that her flip phone proved just that. I laughed and waited for her to finish off composing the text message. She informed me that I was in full control of my reading, she told me that I can change the direction and what not if I need to. I was super comfortable. A legal size pad of paper was in front of me. The lady then asked me to write my full name down, I wrote my first name and then my last name. The lady looked down at the paper and said a male was present – my dad’s dad. My grandpa wasn’t happy with how I didn’t include my middle names.

Now, I’m not going to publish details of my reading online but damn… this lady hit the nail on the head! The information I received was pretty much all career and work related. The lady was able to pick up on way too much – in a good way. I was very reserved because I didn’t want to give out too much information. I found myself saying “interesting” probably more than 40 times in order to stay neutral. Honestly, almost cried like three times. It’s amazing how someone can pin point exactly what you are feeling and knows exactly what to say to relate. This lady probably knew more about me than I know about myself! Ironically enough, I have another reading later this month with another lady. It’ll be interesting to see how the two experiences compare.
