Local Snack Review: Munchbox

As part of our move ‘welcome hamper’ we received a few coupons that I decided to give a try this week.  One of them was Munchbox mostly because I will try anything related to food.  The concept is straightforward, go to the website, order a box (I started with a one off ‘surprise’) and the next day it will be delivered (pay cash on delivery).  I liked that all the snacks were vegan (like all 40 of the options).  I think that’s a fairly rare find in the Emirates.  While I know the U.S. has a ton of options for food and snack subscription services, Munchbox seems like one of the only in the UAE.

The packaging was cute and the treats were divided up in a set of 6, clearly marked with calories and other nutritional details.

Cute packaging is cute.  Also, this is my view most days.

Please mind the editing. Also, I could eat a bucket of these.

With a total cost of AED60 (each box is AED10), it’s a decently priced option.  If I was a bit more focused on my snacks, I could easily see ordering a box for me and Hubs at the start of the week.  Really is AED120 much worse than eating a ton or Pringles celery and hummus?

Do you have snack delivery in the GCC?  Any recommendations?
