Review | Snack Surprise – Hungary

It's another month and another Snack Surprise box post.

Here’s how it works – I order the Original Box (usually between 10 and 12 items), eat and drink the products, and then review them. Following the scorecard in the box, I rate them out of three, and we see where the box ends up on the leader board.

This month’s (well December's… I'm a bit behind!) box came courtesy of Hungary. Read on to hear my thoughts.

Sweet

  • Smile pancakes: “A delicate and soft dough with a delicious strawberry filling”.

The filling was quite rubbery, a bit like jelly – but this snack was nice enough. It was basically like two Scotch pancakes sandwiched together and filled with jam.

  • Teli Fagyi: “A crunchy cone filled with soft chocolate cream and covered in chocolate. It's been popular since the 1970s”.

I personally found the cone quite soft, and the chocolate cream was very sweet. I roped Alfie into helping me eat it. He loved that it resembled an ice cream and I have to say – I think he enjoyed it more than me!

  • Duna Kavics: “Roasted peanuts in coloured sugar coating”.

I loved these colourful, crunchy peanuts. The caramelised shell was so tasty.

  • Pandi Zizi: “Colourful puffed rice with a fruity aroma. A popular and traditional product”.

I found these a bit hit and miss. I liked them to begin with, but then the taste and texture got quite samey and boring. I didn't expect to like them as I hate Rainbow Drops. These were more like coloured Ricicles, and they tasted a bit like sugar puffs.

Savoury

  • Master Crok: “Tiny crocodiles made from corn and flavoured with pizza seasoning”.

The texture of these reminded me of Wotsits, or Cheetos. The pizza flavour was strong – but more like tomato and basil.

  • Traccs Parti Ham Crisps: “Crispy potato crisps, sprinkled with ham flavouring”.

I was expecting these to be like Frazzles, but they were more reminiscent of Quavers – just in Smoky Bacon flavour.

  • Mogyi Crasssh: “Roasted peanuts with a crispy coating, in onion and sour cream flavour”.

These were okay, but quite dry in flavour – I couldn't eat too many at once. I do like crispy coated nuts, but I have to say Sensations or Nobby's are better.

Confectionary

  • Balaton: “A crunchy wafer slice covered in milk chocolate and filled with cocoa cream”.

I'm sure I say this every time, but yes, it's another wafer bar. This particular one was like a chunky version of a Time Out.

  • Sport: “One of the most popular chocolate bars. A layer of dark chocolate envelopes a cocoa fondant filling, enhanced with rum”.

The fondant layer was so soft, and you could definitely taste the rum. It reminded me of something, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

  • Kolyok Gumi Cumi: “A soft and fruity gummy dummy, which is a childhood favourite”.

This apple flavoured gummy was definitely a bit of a novelty. It was gone in one bite. Definitely one for children.

  • Izvilag Szamba: “A two-layered slice, coated with dark chocolate with rum-flavoured cocoa filling and marzipan cherry filling”.

This bar was quite rich and sweet – really nice flavours with a soft texture. Again, you could definitely taste the rum… it wasn't subtle.

Drink

  • Jona Drink: “100% apple juice. It doesn't contain preservatives, flavour enhancers, added sugar or colours”.

Such a refreshing soft drink. Just delicious cloudy apple juice.

And now to the best part – the ratings and leader board. Of the 12 products in the Hungary Snack Surprise box, seven received full marks. Making it another fairly high scorer, this box received 30/36 and here's where it ranks:

  1. Spain – 94%
  2. Italy – 92%
  3. Portugal – 89%
  4. Australia – 87%
  5. New Zealand – 87%
  6. Hungary – 84%
  7. Greece – 82%
  8. Sweden – 82%
  9. Turkey – 81%
