I am back with another subscription unboxing today. Japanese snacks are so much fun to have. Japan is famous for gummies, Asian snacks, DIY Candy Kits and Chips. The packaging is very adorable.
Tokyo Treat is the sweetest monthly Japanese candy subscription box I have ever received. Tokyo Treat is like my best friend from Japan. Their lovely team kindly offered me the January 2016 box for review. Their premium box is undoubtedly the best candy subscription box in the world.
Tokyo Treat is a monthly food subscription service that sends you snacks and candies directly from Japan. They have three different subscription options: Small ($14.99/month), Regular ($24.99/month), and Premium ($34.99/month). The Small pack comes with 5-7 candies/snacks, Regular includes everything in the Small plus 3-5 more items including a DIY kit, and the Premium includes everything in the Small and Regular, plus 4-6 more items, a DIY kit, a beverage, and a special item. They offer free worldwide shipping. I’ll be reviewing the January 2016 Tokyo Treat Premium box today.
I was delighted to see an international mail in bright orange fun box waiting for me. It was hard for me to hide my excitement. The good news is that there were no customs fee. Seems like Team Tokyo Treat have revamped the packaging recently. With those cute illustrations, the box screams Japan. I totally love and adore it! It reminds me I have to visit Japan one day!! Argh! How I wish I could go there.
The box comes with a little booklet detailing all the snacks and some facts. It is like a window to know about the Japanese Culture. The description on the snacks pack is in Japanese. The English translation on the booklet is very useful.
The featured pages this month were about Yo-Kai Watch, a monster franchise that has video games, Oshogatsu (New Year), popular places to visit in Japan and DIY instructions.
My box arrived in perfect condition and as soon as I opened it, I found huge quantity of various snacks. I instantly died and came back from heaven seeing all these yummy treats.
Fuku Fuku Tai Chocolate : Sea bream- fish shaped aerated wafer filled full of chocolate. The red and gold packaging looks festive and attractive. This snack was yummy. The shell is fragile and it melted due to hot climate. The texture is similar to an ice cream cone.
Pokemon Wafers: Another choco filled crispy dense wafers. The packaging is Pokemon themed and comes with a collectible sticker. This also tasted good.
Pokemon Ramune : Ramune is classic Japanese soda in a funky bottle. I’m got 5 flavors of this candy namely pineapple, cola, ramune, melon, and grape. The texture is smooth and similar to Glucovita Bolts . The flavors were so good. The Pokemon themed packaging is nice. I want more of this candy.
Yokai-Watch Character Soft Serve Caramel Corn: Another cute packaging. The flavor is vanilla , but I tasted like creamy milk. These are puffed corn snacks. I tried Chocolat De Corn from my previous Tokyo Treat. Light weighted and melts easily in mouth. Tasty but more on the sweet side. I love this version more than the chocolate one.
Tyrant Habanero Who Came Back: I was hesitant to try this at first due to the huge jalapeno with an evil grin. I tried it and it was very spicy and crunchy. Tasted good. Ring shaped snack that packs a bit of heat.
Neru Neru Nerune Soda Flavor DIY Kit : Its fun to try Japanese candy kits! The results were good but I forgot to snap. This brand is famous. I mixed the packets. It was a blue texture. If you to leave it overnight, it grows into a puffed candy.
Pocky “Melt In Your Mouth” Winter Limited Edition: Pocky is my all time favorite. Most of them are limited edition and available in different flavours. Last time, I tried Wasabi one. The Pocky dipped in a creamy chocolate mix with cocoa powder melt in mouth! Rich, creamy and indulgent. Pockies are dipped cookie sticks.
Pokemon Pineapple Chewing Candy: Looks like a pack of gum. It’s a chewy pineapple candy. Every strip is wrapped in a Pokemon quiz and temporary tattoo. The flavor is awesome but the texture is too hard !
Pokemon Sticker Matching Chewing Gum: It was more of paper than candy. It had just a tiny thin piece of cola gum. The Pokemon puzzle and card is a great collectible. The gum was easy to chew and it was a bonus.
Yokai-Watch Fortune Seal Namaste Curry: Another crispy snack. Ring shaped. Tasted like Cheetos. The hexagon shaped outer packaging is unique.
Amazake: High Quality Sweet Sake: It’s a fermented rice beverage with 1% alcohol content. The texture was odd and it didn’t taste like beverage. It is like porridge and to be served warm.
Oekaki Kyanland Candy: Another DIY kit! The base gum is like dough and you can play with it to mold different animal shapes. The edible paint comes in three shades and the palette offers lot of space to mix.
Chocolate Ball “Chocoball” Peanut Candy: These are whole peanuts covered in chocolate and I loved them.
Pokemon Moncolle 12 Species Assortment: This is a special little collectible that features Pokemon figurine. Who doesn’t love Pokemon. Tokyo Treat sent out 12 variations of these.
Wooowww, that was a lot of goodies! Overall I must say that Tokyo Treat Box is a great deal. All the items are authentic. Tokyo Treat sends out all these items as a box with international shipping for only $35!
There are many Japanese snack subscriptions out there, but I think this is the best one. Ayumi (the founder) personally sources the snacks. I am really impressed with the range of products, curation, theme and mix of everything. I wish there was a way to purchase more snacks directly from them! You can even gift this subscription to your besties. Shipping is secure. The customer service is prompt. Visit Tokyo Treat to subscribe or find out more.
