Kwusi box African Snacks Subscription Box : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Kwusi asked if I would like to try one of their subscription boxes, I said yeah as I have never really tried many African snacks and its always good to try new things.

Kwusi box

I opened the box and wow so many items!!!

I took every packet out and had a good look at them, I only knew of one brand Chika’s as they had recently sent me some snacks to try.

The rest were all new to me which was very cool, as its always good to try new things.

The Snacks

Olu Olu Sweet Yellow Plantain Chips

I started with these.

These looked really good, and smelled really nice. They had a nice crunch to them, and I thought there was a good amount in the packet.

The banana flavour was still there but very subtle, but mmm so good and these were finished very fast.

Safari Peach Fruit Roll

This one looked and sounded very interesting.

I am a big fan of the flavour peach, so I was hoping this wouldn’t disappoint.

I opened this and I had a subtle hint of peach, then I touched it and it reminded me of a childhood sweet.

Next I cut a little off and tasted it.

Very interesting, it had a slightly chewy texture and a slight hint of peach.

Overall it was just ok for me, but my fiancee loved this.

Chikas Sun roasted Red Skin Peanuts

I got some peanuts with my Chika’s snacks, but this one was new to me.

Unfortunately I cant eat nuts, but my fiancee was willing to help me out with this review.

She said “the flavour was really nice, they had a good crunch to them and also one she would purchase again”

Chikas Lightly Salted Wholegrain Rice Crisps

I had these crisps before from Chika’s and they were nice, thin, light and were lightly salted.

For me I could have done with a slightly stronger salt taste, but thats my personal preference.

Love Chin Chin

This looked interesting, I loved the branding of this and the font used.

It said looks crunches like a biscuit, but tastes like cake….how good does this sound!!

It was spot on! these were very cool and I really liked this.

I could have easily had many more packets.

Kwusi Sweet Mix

Who doesnt like a sweet mix, they are cool and fun sized.

Again like most of the brands I had never heard of Tom Tom, but I dug right in and tried both.

The yellow packing was a banana flavour, and the black a mint flavour.

Both were very nice, and guess what! finished very fast.

Rooibos Orange Tisane

I actually tried this one after the herbal one (which is the next one you will read).

For me it had a similar taste, again was very nice and refreshing.

Rooibos Orange Herbal Tisane

I am not a big tea drinker, more coffee but I am always up for trying new things and expanding my tastebuds.

This was actually really nice, it had a nice tea taste with an extra little bit of orange flavour to it.

I sat and sipped this to savour the taste, and overall it was nice and I enjoyed my cup of tea.

If your a tea drinker then you would really like this.

Nestle Pepermint Crisp

Did I save the best till last?

This sounded really good, so I did keep it to last.

WOW WOW this was so nice, the flavour was perfect the crunch was perfect I need to get more of these 🙂

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the subscription box.

Chikas⁣ Salt & Vinegar Wholegrain Rice Crisps

When it comes to salt and vinegar, I find it either too strong a flavour or just more salty than anything….but thats my taste palate but I was interested how to these were.

I opened the packet and instantly noticed how thin they were, so I thought “probably not much flavour”…..I couldn’t have been more wrong. For a thin crisp these packed a punch of flavour, and it was a perfect balance of flavour and a nice texture.

CHIKAS⁣ Smoky Barbecue Wholegrain Rice Crisps

I love a good barbecue flavour for sauce or crisps, so I was looking forward to popping these open.

mmmm these were probably my favourite from all the crisp range I tried, they were thin, light and had a really nice barbecue flavour that wasnt strong but wasnt hiding in the background.

I could have easily had another one.
