Diving into the Turkish Munchies Exotic box

In this Turkish Munchies review, we focus on the Exotic Edition box that we received.

We were excited to dive into the box and compare the snacks to those we had seen while we were in Turkey exploring the local food.

Our box arrived fast, and we appreciated the accurate and consistent tracking information we had received prior.

The Turkish Munchies box was delivered neatly and securely packaged from Turkey.

What Do You Get In The Turkish Munchies Box

Hosbes Turkish Snacks Review by Authentic Food Quest
Hosbes simply melted in the mouth

The first thing that surprised us about our Turkish Munchies box was the weight.

The box was heavy, and it contained 20 full-size snacks and one mystery snack

Inside the Turkish Munchies box was an array of different popular Turkish snacks. There were sweet snacks like chocolate, cookies, and pastries. And, savory treats like crackers, salty sticks, and more.

Also included in the Turkish snacks box was an informational booklet of all the treats, including the nutritional content of each snack.

Turkish Savory Snacks

The Turkish savory snacks we received

The Turkish savory snacks surprised and delighted us. Many of the traditional snacks were new to us, and we had not seen them while in Türkiye.

Below, we highlight some of our favorites.

Greta – The Greta crackers were olive oil-based and incredibly tasty. These crackers were light and flaky with a delicious Mediterranean flair. 

Nutzz Party – As the name suggests, these snacks were a mix of nuts with cheese flavorings. These were a mix of unpopped corn and crunchy grilled peanuts and my top favorite among the salty snacks.

Balik – Having enjoyed Balik Ekmek fish sandwiches in Istanbul, Rosemary was tempted by the Balik crackers. The Balik crackers were fun and fish-shaped and extremely easy to eat. While they didn’t have the spicy notes and onion flavors of the fish sandwich, they are a great snack on the go.

Citir – Citir crackers were another delightful Turkish snack to discover. Onion and cheese flavored, these perfectly crispy little bites hit the spot each time we tried them.

Two of the other salty snacks in our box were snack sticks called Krispi and Baden crackers.

Sweet Snacks from Turkey

The Turkish Munchies box had a varied selection of sweet snacks. There were cookies, cakes, gummies, candies, and surprising treats. Some of our favorites were:

Biscolata – These are tiny pastries that are caramel macchiato flavored. They are bite-sized and pair very well with either coffee or tea. These little bites were a hit.

Hosbes – Hosbes were another unique and delicious snack. These thin wafers were filled with delicious hazelnut cream, and they simply melted in the mouth.

Harby – Those who love caramel flavors, like Rosemary, will enjoy the unique tastes of this typical treat. This traditional layered chocolate Turkish treat is perfect to dip into hot tea or coffee.

Sultan Lokum – If you love Turkish Delights, you’ll love the unique interpretation of this classic sweet. Sultan Lokum is like a Turkish Delight or Lokum with an added biscuit. A unique blend of textures and one of my favorites.

Pofti Puff – We were excited to find this fuzzy treat in our Turkish Munchies box. We had tried this traditional treat for the first time in an Istanbul cooking class and were delighted to have it again. This classic dessert was a marshmallow fluff with coconut sprinkles.

Other surprising sweet Turkish Munchies in our box were Ozmo Tube which was squeezable chocolate in a tube, Incir or freeze-dried figs, Halva, and more.

Turkish Munchies Mystery Snack

Probis the mystery snack

Upon opening the Turkish Munchies box, we were quite curious to discover the mystery snack.

Tucked in between the 20+ snacks was Probis in our Exotic Edition Box. 

This was one of Rosemary’s favorite snacks. This mystery snack reminded her of a much-loved childhood snack. 

Probis was a delicious snack made up of two tasty biscuits which are sandwiched together with a chocolate filling.

The mystery snack is different in each box, which keeps the excitement and anticipation high for each new monthly box.

Turkish Munchies Booklet

Turkish Munchies Booklet by Authentic Food Quest
Pretty informative and detailed

The Turkish Munchies booklet that comes in each pack is informative and detailed.

We appreciated the detailed nutritional information as well as the brief description of each snack.

The booklet is easy to read with fun visuals and contains allergen information for those with sensitivities. 

One extra tip provided in the booklet is a recommendation for the best beverages to go with each of the snacks.  

From Turkish coffee, milk, soda, to cold beverages, there’s a perfect drink for each snack.
