Here's the Box Breakdown
first look in the aloha snack pack
Our first glimpse inside the Aloha Snack Pack. 

what's in the aloha snack pack
Everything that we received in our Aloha Snack Pack. There are so many full sized items! This subscription has us loaded to the gills with yummy food!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box inserts. One a postcard from Hawaii and the other a detailed listing of the contents of the Aloha Snack Pack


We received this cute little Hawaiian themed pocket planner! Seriously though, how cute is this?!


li hing mango
$5
Li Hing is a sweet and salty seasoning applied to many dried fruits. It's made from plum and gives foods an instant pop of flavor. This was our first time trying the li hing on mangoes! It was yummy!

These make great on the go snacks! 


mauna loa macadamia
$7.99
So, Mauna Loa nuts are staples in Hawaiian themed snack boxes but this is a big container and it's a flavor we've never received before - a subscription box first!

These were so tasty. We shared them with the kids and they LOVED them as well! We didn't realize there were any flavors other than the ones that we had already tried - you learn something new everyday!


gingerbread latte kona coffee
$8
Enjoy Christmas the Hawaiian way! Wake up to a fresh cup of Hawaiian Isles Kona Coffee in their distinct holiday edition. This is a ground coffee so you don't need a grinder for it and it's a full sized package! 


hawaiian sun lilikoi pancake mix
$6
We just adore lilikoi butter (a custard like jam made from passion fruit) and are so glad that we get to try this pancake mix with lilikoi flavoring. There were three flavors available in the Aloha Snack Pack Box; lilikoi, guava, or chocolate macadamia nut. All you have to do to create a delicious Hawaiian style breakfast is add water!


For some reason we just couldn't put 2 and 2 together for this one. Only realized now as we are writing this review that this jerky is from a Marlin the fish! We thought it tasted a little different but chalked it up to different diet of the animal! 

Because Hawaii is an island fish turns up in a number of unexpected places (well at least for us inlanders). The flavor of this jerky was savory and sweet... lots of umami going on! We would have never known it was fish - it doesn't even look like fish!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Aloha Snack Pack is the COOLEST Hawaiian snack subscription that we've ever reviewed. We love the full sized items and the absolutely awesome variety! The presentation is great - everything arrives exactly as it should. The quality is phenomenal, all high quality foods from Hawaii. Everything tasted so good! And of course curation. What can we say? Everything is from Hawaii and everything is fabulous. Love Aloha Snack Pack!
