Gouden Wafels- The January box had some waffle snacks, too, and I loved them. This wafel sandwich has one side dipped in milk chocolate. I think I like plain better than chocolate covered but that’s just because I am super picky about my chocolate.
Tokyo Tamago- This snack is so fun! Carefully packaged, inside is an egg shaped treat coated with white chocolate. Inside is two layers of cake with a sesame paste center.
Sugar Butter Sandwich- This is a puff pastry cookie made with barley with a white chocolate cream filling. I loved the airy-ness of the pastry but I think the barley part made it taste too different.
Tokyo Pancake- This was fantastic! A pancake flavored langue-de-chat biscuit sandwich with white chocolate and a maple cream filling. I wished so hard there were more than two of these.
Odaiba Ring- These are sold only at Odaiba in Tokyo. It’s a banana flavored crunchy chocolate topped with white chocolate. It is SO GOOD! The banana flavor was amazing! I was very, very sad there were only two.
Nijushisetsu Flower- Beautifully wrapped, individual senbei with unique flavors. I received Yuzu and Black Pepper. I think.
Salty Caramel- Japanese caramel with sea salt.
Black Thunder- These are like chocolate crunch bars with pretzel inside. They’re so good! Once again, very sad there were only two.
Edamame Senbei- Lightly salted rice cracker crisps with edamame.
Hina Arare- Colorful rice crackers celebrating Doll’s Day in Japan. Multi-flavored puffs. I ate all the pink ones first. 🙂
VERDICT: Such a great variety of Japanese snacks. As always, I wish there were more of each snack included. This is a pricey box and I think the value would increase nicely with a few more of each. On the other hand, Snakku makes an excellent gift and on that front it would be totally worth it to make someone as happy as I get when trying all these tasty treats.
