The Korean wave swept over the globe in the late 2000’s, so much so that, even if you’re not a fan, you still pretty much know about it! The world (well, most of the population) suddenly came to adore the music, TV shows, celebrities, food and culture. Everyone wants a piece of South Korea!
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to make a trip there and explore the nation. That’s why a startup company was born to deliver those Korean delights right to our doorsteps!
SnackFever offers a bunch of special foods shipped all the way to us. This startup was started by a bunch of oppas from Los Angeles, US, who wanted to share Korea with the rest of the world.
They curate, pack, and deliver special food that are hard to get from elsewhere except from Korea itself. Best of all, the delivery is worldwide and FREE!
These boxes come in themes and the items inside are usually a mystery.
The themes are:
1. SnackFever Box
We all know that most Korean snacks are a little bit difficult to come by. Well, this box contains a bunch of different snacks, candies, chocolates, drinks, so you will always get to try something new and exciting.
They come in 3 different sizes.
- Mini Box – 4 to 7 items
- Original Box – 8 to 12 items
- Deluxe Box – 10 to 15 premium items
2. RamyunFever Box
Korean instant noodles are all the rage right now in Malaysia, particularly the Buldalk Bokkeum Myeon (불닭볶음면) – or as Malaysians call it the spicy Samyang noodles.
But aside from the fiery noodles, there are a bunch of other instant noodles from Korea that are just as good if not better.
The box comes with a combination of 7 to 10 premium instant noodles and they’re not limited to just ramyun. The box includes noodles such as udon, soba, and kalguksu too. What Maggi mee? No need already lah!
3. DoshirakFever Box
Doshirak (도시락) means ‘lunch box’ in Korean. A typical Korean lunch box consists of fried rice, kimchi, an egg, and some luncheon meat.
Of course, the content varies too, just like how the DoshirakFever box’s content will be switched up monthly. The box contains a variety of ready-made meals that are perfect for college students, young professionals on the go, and anyone else who loves quickies 😉
Every month, you will receive 8 to 12 premium easy-prep, ready-to-serve Korean foods in one package.
The prices range from USD12 to USD35 per box (RM50 – RM147).
If you subscribe to their monthly plan, the boxes will cost lesser. Their plans include a 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months subscription.
All boxes even come with bonus items such as K-pop merchandises, special Korean cutlery, adorable socks and more! They actually gave out a SnackFever fidget spinner before!
Unfortunately, SnackFever has yet to come up with special Halal or vegetarian boxes, but they have hinted to fans that they are working on it.
