July 2015 Greek Pack Review


I like to think of myself as adventurous when it comes to food. Growing up in an Italian family and then marrying into a Mexican family plays a big part in that. Food is the centerpiece of any family gathering so naturally, I've developed a deep love and appreciation for it. I'm always curious about new tastes and sampling things from other regions of the world. This month, I'm taking a bite out of Greece with Greek Pack!

Greek Pack, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a monthly food subscription service. For $19.99 per month, subscribers will receive a curated selection of the best snacks and treats that Geece has to offer! 

Enclosed was a detailed information sheet about each product. This is especially helpful since my Knowledge of the Greek language is non-existent.

Tsakiris Chips --- so delicious! Seasoned with high quality sea salt from the island of Mytilene.

 Pasteli Bars --- A sweet sesame seed candy made with honey. They have a really high nutritional value as well.

Chalvadopita --- This seriously looks weird but it tastes delicious! It's two very thin wafers with a nougat and baked Greek almond mixture sandwiched between them.

Greek Honey --- give me honey and I'm a very happy girl. Greek honey is said to be some of the worlds finest and this is certainly very yummy!

Mikio --- a Cretan snack prepared without preservatives from pure, fresh, wholesome ingredients. A super crunchy treat!

Chalvas --- a very crumbly sweet. It was certainly different than anything else I've tasted. Honestly a bit hard to describe it!

Mastiha --- This is the only thing I just flat out didn't like. Made with a resin from the mastic tree, it gets softer as you chew but has a distinct bitter flavor I just really dislike.

My taste of Greece was certainly interesting. There were some really yummy new favorites and some that I just didn't love, but overall I think Greek Pack curated a great box and I'm excited to see what next month will bring!
