I recently bought a subscription to
In case you don't know what this subscription service is well the name says it all. You get a bunch of random candy and snacks from Japan about twice a month!
It costs $25 USD (<- note its in USD) with free shipping all the way from Japan.
They also will send you an email with information on what is in the shipment and any other news.
Here are some photos of what I got in my package and thoughts on whether or not I liked the snacks!
|The package it came in|
|A larger than normal shipment apparently|
|This is everything I got in my package :O|
1) Strawberry Fortune Telling Chocolates
OMG these were sooooo good! If only there were more of them in the package. I didn't pay too much attention to the actual fortune telling info though. This is how you know what your fortune was: You either get a circle, double circle, cross or triangle. The email explained what they meant and what they were about eg. karaoke, school...
2) Orange Bubblegum
They are really nice but the taste doesn't last long
Okay so this had the taste of ramune but it was in a tablet like form that sort of melted in your mouth. Still really good!
4) Nericho Soft
This was kinda fun to make and it tasted quite nice, it had a sherbet taste to it.
5) Shittori Choco
Omfggggg this was the most amazing thing I have ever eaten!! The chocolatey goodness is to die for. Anyway here is what it looks like in all its glory~
6) Anpanman Biscuits
These were nice, they tasted like the McDonalds cookies. Wish there were more in the packet though
Your average shrimp flavoured snack
8) Yamato no kame-san
These were so good! They tasted just like these other Asian biscuits but I don't know what they are called :P
9) Umai bou Cheese and Potage Flavour
|not a nice photo.. but the potage one was broken|
Okay tasting... not a good choice to eat it on my bed though lol - potage flavour is ok, I'm not too sure what it is but yeah...
10) Tai Arare
Again fish flavoured snacks. These were red snapper flavour.
11) Corn Potage
Potage flavour is okay. Just another savoury snack
12) Aji Curry
These snacks tasted just like Japanese curry!! I really liked these. They were so delicious.
The service is very good in my opinion. The shipping is very on time with the estimated delivery time and I really have no complaints about communication as an email is sent out about the shipment quite early. I do feel that the price is quite reasonable as shipping from Japan can be expensive. I definitely recommend this service to people who are interested in trying Japanese snacks or cannot get other Japanese candy services to ship to their country (eg. skoshbox does not ship to Australia).
Thank you for reading and hopefully this was helpful!
