Japan candy box is a new subscription by Blippo, the same people who do the Kawaii Box. It’s jam-packed with Japanese candies. Each box promises eight to ten candies and snacks.
The Cost: $19.90/month (shipping is free and international)
What You Get: Each month you will receive 8-10 Japanese sweets and snacks.
Dorayaki is a traditional Japanese treat and is made up of two pancakes sandwiched with sweet red bean paste. Blech. I hate red bean paste!
This is a nice big bag of gummies. They have sort of a sugar dusting on them. They’re a little tart but not too sour. I’m not sure what the flavors are.
These are cola flavored. Why don’t US candies have cola flavor? I have liked the cola flavored Japanese candy I’ve received in snack boxes. They might be kinda like Dr. Pepper, either you love it (like me!) or you don’t.
This is a Do-It-Yourself set for shaping different figures and animals from delicious edible candy material. Of course I had to play with it. That’s what DIY kits are for! So I made a cat with a mustache. It was actually supposed to be a smile but it only ever looked like a mustache so I gave up and accepted it. There were sprinkles, a plastic tub that you could use as a stamp and five colors of candy. It was pretty fun, I’m not going to lie.
Small pieces of cola flavored gum with a hard candy shell. A handful makes a decent size chewing gum. They taste a little strange but sort of addicting at the same time.
These are like Cookies and Cream Pocky sticks only not Pocky brand. Pretty good, though. 🙂
Marukawa Fusen Bubblegum– This is really weird tasting. It has the typical Japanese gum consistency but I can’t figure out the flavor. It reminds me of something though.
Meiji Kotsubu Chocolates– If these are chocolates… They must be white chocolate? Because inside these is a sort of really soft Skittles type of concoction. Interesting but not enough for me to keep eating. Drat my calorie counting.
These arrived without a box. I’m guessing it’s because it made it easier to fit in the package. They were in the inner bag, of course. Not loose. Except I opened them first and mangled the bag so there’s no picture of it.
I will say that this is a LOT of candy! I can’t believe how much they fit in the box. I started with the Koalas and ate the Sour Paper strip and I still have so much more to scarf! Plus, most of these were things I’ve never had before. I just wish that had been one snack type. I know it’s called a candy box but hey, I can dream. 🙂
