Here's what was inside:
A soft chewy (and highly addictive) fruit candy. This was originally developed as an ‘edible chewing gum’ to avoid bad manners of spitting out your gum.
These remind me of Starburst candy.
Milky candy may not seem initially appealing, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised by its milkshakey taste!
I really like this one. Milky, creamy flavour and not too sweet.
ORANGE BUBBLE GUM
A classic fruity bubble gum favorite, especially with kids in Japan. The burst of flavor will surprise you!
This has a soft texture and has a strong orange flavour.
A puffed corn snack that comes in array of food flavors like takoyaki, shrimp & mayonnaise, pizza and curry.
I had no idea which flavours I got. I got nervous deciding which one to try first. I went for the green one and it was alright, but I still can’t tell you what flavour it was lol! It could’ve been curry maybe? Oh wait I think it was the shrimp. Not liking the after taste.
The classic baked rice cracker, crispy and seasoned with a hint of shoyu. This is a popular snack to serve to you guests at home with green tea.
Definite rice cracker taste and has a salty flavour. I liked it.
Chocolate cream filled cookies! Did you know there are 365 koala cookie designs?
How cute are these?! My son ate these up too, so you know they're good.
KAKI NO TANE
A mix of spicy rice crackers and peanuts. Kaki no tane means persimmon seeds because the crackers look just like it!
These I'm going to keep in my bag for when I need a quick little snack.
Chocoball is a chocolate ball with a peanut in the center. This snack along with its cute mascot “Kyorochan” is one of the most recognized names among Japanese snacks.
Chocolate and peanut together - another treat for little man.
AIR IN ERASER
Japanese erasers are life-changing. You’re welcome
Candy coated chocolates, similar to M&Ms. You decide which one you like better!
They taste exactly like M&Ms. I couldn’t tell the difference.
Chocolate bars with a green tea filling, and two savory centers: azuki and cream!
Hmm..not sure what to make of this chocolate bar, but this too will get eaten by the chocolate lovers around here.
Overall this was a fun box to try! I don't have the biggest sweet tooth, but I really enjoyed trying all these new candies. This would also be a cool gift for someone who does have a sweet tooth. I think this box is well worth the price. However, I am very sorry to say that this box only ships within the U.S. right now. I know Canadians, hopefully soon they will ship here too.
