Japan Candy Box is a monthly subscription service that sends you 8-10 hand-picked Japanese sweets & snacks every month. I got a chance to review one of these monthly boxes + host a giveaway, so one of my readers can try it too!
But first, let's see what was included in the box that I received. If you are interested in trying a specific product from this box, then you should know that all these are also available at Blippo, since Japan Candy Box is actually one of their subscription services. That means we can also compare how much these candies would cost if bought separately.
First and probably the biggest item in my candy box was Popin’ Cookin’ Cake & Ice Cream Shop DIY kit. I haven't actually tried it yet, since it requires some time and effort, but I guess I'll write a separate post about it later. By the way, there seems to be at least 1 DIY kit in every Japan Candy Box.
These Hello Kitty Biscuit Sticks are quite similar to famous Pocky snacks. I guess the biggest difference is that these have a cute hello kitty themed package. The sticks had a lovely strawberry coating and were a nice treat overall.
Meiji Petit Bubble Gum - Soda is a box full of small soda flavoured bubble gums. Next to it is Yaokin Sweet & Sour Paper Candy - Green Apple.
This is lemon flavoured Seika Abekko Ramune Candy. It's a fizzy tablet that kind of melts in your mouth.
Another fizzy treat - Lotte Pokemon Ramune Candy. These had a cola flavour, which I liked a bit more than the lemon ones.
Yaokin Takoyaki Snack Stick is a salty snack. I'm guessing it is seasoned to taste like takoyaki? I haven't tried takoyaki, though, so I wouldn't know. However, it was super yummy! :)
UHA Lemon Gummy - these were probably my favourite! I like sour candies so I kept this one all for myself, haha.
Tohato Anpanman Corn Rings - these were rather lightly flavoured. On the package it actually says "Let's start from 1 year old", so they are good for smaller children. My 3 year old son ate it up within minutes, so I guess he liked it. :)
The last product in my candy box was Puccho Pink Grapefruit Chewy Candy. It's a grapefruit flavoured soft yogurt candy with small fruit gummies inside.
All in all, I think the contents of this box were all super fun, super cute and super tasty. There was a great selection of different treats: sweets, biscuits, sour candies & even salty snacks!
1 Japan Candy Box costs $19.90 or less if you subscribe for a longer time. The total value of the treats included in my box was $26.25 according to what they cost at Blippo.
So, if you like Japanese sweets & snacks, you should definitely consider subscribing! It's a fun way to try out new candies and actually get them for less money!
However, you might get one box for FREE if you join the giveaway below! :)
