Welcome to IreviewUread! Today I’m going to unbox a Korean Snack Box unboxing! Before I jump into that, did you notice a background change? Well, that’s because I’m staying at XY Hotel Bugis for my staycation!
Located in the colourful neighbourhood of Kampong Glam, XY Hotel Bugis is a boutique hotel that features eccentric art pieces and modern technology. One of the most iconic pieces was a ladder that hung haphazardly from the ceiling. The ladder was from the former shop that sits in this location before XY hotel Bugis was founded. Right next to the art pieces, is a humble bistro that serves delicious delicacies. Fun fact, the design of the dining tables are routes of the Kampong Glam area!
Right above the dining area, an outdoor glass pool illuminates natural light into the hotel. The pool is a great way to relax and enjoy some privacy at the heart of Singapore.
My favourite part of the hotel has got to be their whimsical decorations. The décor extends into the rooms. Each room features a different art piece that was hand painted by young Singaporean artists. I’ve chosen to stay in The Rooster room for it not only gives me a warm and happy vibe, but it’s also a commemorative piece of the Thieves’ market near Sungei Road. An iconic antiquity in Singapore.
With that, let’s jump back into the K-culture! Let’s face it, who haven’t been hit by the K-wave. I know I have. And, when I heard of this Korean snack box, “SnackBOOM” I was ecstatic!
So, what is “SnackBOOM”? SnackBOOM is a snack box that not only contains and abundance of popular Korean snacks, but their boxes have a new theme every month too!

You know that feeling when you got a mystery box? And you have no idea what’s inside it’s just like a surprise! I’m having that feeling right now! Let’s Open! This whole thing is packed. Ok, now the first thing which I see is… What’s this? It looks something like Jagabee but it’s not really Jagabee. There’s a weird picture of this… Is there like a sauce in this? This got me wondering! Oooo Woah! A lot thicker than I expected. Like damn son! There’s a hole in the middle. Cheese. This is amazing! Something like rollercoaster but not really rollercoaster. I have no idea how to describe this but.. It’s just amazing! Apparently, this snack comes with a sweet barbeque sauce which was hidden in the middle of the package. After trying them out together, it does taste better with the sauce. And next which I see is this! Premium whole almond candy. Everything else is in Korean. Let’s open this. Almond candy? I eat almond chocolate.. Ooo! There’s like multiple packets in this. There’s an almond in this. Cool! Oh wow! The crunch. I think I’m supposed to suck on it. But I’m biting it. I think it’s like milk candy at the bottom? and then there’s almond at the top. It’s also really sweet. And I have a sweet tooth. I’m liking this. There’s 20 packets in it.. and I can’t read anything. So, ya it taste good.
Next, we’re going to go for…This! This looks like raw potato chips. Oh, I think this is like unsalted potato. Oh so cool…. Next, I’ll be trying this. This is like a peanut thing. Peanut cracker? Wow. It smells like peanut. You can see like there’s the peanut flakes in it. It’s really cool. Taste like peanut butter, I’m liking this!
I noticed that there’s a drink in it. Ohhh, Grape! After all that snack, we definitely need a drink. Opening. Aside from getting my lipstick all over this thing. There seemed to be some grapey… Is there grapes in it?! OMG there’s grapes in it. This is so cool. There’s like jelly grapes in it. So I really want to try the grapes and I poured it in a cup! It’s just amazing. Let’s try. Oh! It’s so soft, it disintegrates in your mouth. I’m so fascinated, I’m so impressed. I would definitely recommend this, this is so good.
It taste…It taste grapey and it doesn’t taste like very sweet. 128 calories, since 1981. Amazing. So far, it’s amazing. This snackbox is amazing, We’re moving on to this! Ohh. I think this is a pancake mix. I love making pancakes, I am a sucker for pancakes. Sweet Korean pancake mix. It looks a little like pumpkin. I can’t to try this. You can also make muffin and cookies from this pancake mix. This is an amazing piece of thing. I will make this. Or at least my father will make this. One of us will make this. That’s the problem with having chefs and cooks in your family, everyone wants to make things. I didn’t expect this to in a snackbox. I don’t think anybody would expect this.
Let’s try this, OREO. Oh memories. Oh it does look like Oreo but it’s more a fatter Oreo because the fillings are … are more.. Fat. It smells like oreo. Oh! This is similar tasting to Oreo. I’m liking this. Erf, if only I have like a milk or something. This is amazing. 10 out of 10. Taste like the original oreo. It’s amazing. Imitation oreo which actually taste like oreo.
We’re going for goldfish! I’m going to try out this goldfish. Oh! At the side you can see like. There’s like the pictures of the goldfish. It is so cute, OMG. Bingo? OMG you can play Bingo? Is there like a Bingo sheet in it? Oh My God. This is so cute! We have a tortoise! It does not taste like goldfish, it taste like the… I don’t know what is that snack called. I’ll put the image over here, but than it taste like that. I was addicted to that snack for the longest period of time. It will always make your hand smell kind of like that snack. Kind of have like, this roasted chicken kind of after taste so.. I’m sorry Mr Rooster for eating..
Next. This is basically like a baked pastry kind of .. It’s a pastry cracker. Slow cooking. Oh, wow! It comes in multiple packets. You can see like there’s sugar crust on it. Hmmp, it’s sweet. Taste like Tau Da Pia. The plain cracker with the sugar on top. It doesn’t really look like the picture though. But I really love this packaging. But it taste like Tau Sa Pia.
Now next, milk candy! A milk candy. Soft candy with fresh A1 grade milk. I like it when they come in this kind of smaller packets. Oh! Oh it’s chewable! You can taste the milk taste, which is really really strong. It doesn’t taste like, you know the normal milk candy that kind of milk. Because sometimes when you know the normal milk candy taste like condense milk, you’re like nope. It’s not happening, I’m not swallowing this. But this taste like authentic milk. Something like the white rabbit milk candy. And it gets stuck in your teeth, just like the white rabbit milk candy. I would definitely buy this again.
Next, we’re going to try this. Oh! Another candy, there seemed to be alot of candy packages in this. Which I’m not hating because sweet tooth. Look like some fruit burst where they contain, Lemon flavoured, orange, apple, and grape. It kind of reminds me of Skittles. Ohhh. It does look like Skittles Look, it’s like a lighter colour but it have the Skittles kind of feel. Let’s try the grape one because, I love grapes. Some of it looks abit broken but the inside looks ok. It have a weird flavour. I’m not liking this. Now, the orange one. Hmmp! The orange flavour is good. Now the lemon flavour. Oh! The lemon flavour there’s a zesty lemon kind of taste to it. It’s a bit sour but I’m liking the sourness. Lastly the apple. Actually by now, I can’t really taste much because everything is just in my mouth. Oh!! Wow! The green apple taste is so strong. I was shocked. Like there’s a pow of green apple. Like if you love green apple, this is great.
Next, I’m ready for some chips! So this is a baked potato. Baked potato chip! Potato Potato Potato. Like the other one, it comes in 2 packets. It looks perfect with the crisps and shape. Taste like baked potato, it doesn’t taste too salty. It doesn’t even really taste salty. You can’t really taste the preservatives or much inside. This is A grade, premium potato chip. This potato chip needs a crown because it’s that good. Definitely, 10 out of 10. Amazing.
It seems that we’re left with a few things. One is this, Jelly Day kind of grape I’m not quite sure if you can see but it’s like a flab. Oh Gummy! It’s not too sweet, I like it’s chewy factor. It’s like when at the end then you get like a grape pound flavour. It’s great for when you’re bored and you’re looking for things to chew and you don’t want something to be too sweet. I feel that it doesn’t have much of a grape taste though.
Last thing is definitely.. this! This is the Wanna One stickers. And this is Daniel. Okay, basically I only recognized one cursor from wanna one. Which is Daniel. because I watched it’s dangerous outside the blanket and he’s inside. So that is the only person I recognize. Especially for the Kpop fans. You can see all the members of the Wanna One. So this is a sticker sheet, it’s so cool. The sticker sheets are really good quality. Oh wow And it looks so cute. It feels just like a Neoprint kind of feel.
With a ton of opened packages around me and the room in a mess, I guess, we’ve come to the end of this unboxing and tasting video. I really like this box because they exposed me to so many various things I’ve never tried before. One of my favourite would definitely be the baked potato and the grape juice. Next that I found most interesting is this. This peanut thing. I like peanut and this is amazing. Although there are similar tasting products that we can find in our local store, it doesn’t mean it’s the same. There’s still like it’s like a slight difference in the taste and the texture. I think it’s quite worth it to get snack boom because you’re not only taste all these variety of snacks. Plus you get your bias stickers. Oh my god. Why not?
