OishiiBox Subscription Box Review – July 2014
OishiiBox is a new monthly subscription box that sends you a collection of snacks, candies, and other kawaii things from Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and beyond.
OishiiBox kindly sent us this box to review.
This is actually OishiiBox’s debut box, and I think they have a really adorable card. I was impressed by this especially because it’s a brand new subscription and they have a great design and thorough information already. Additionally, a portion of each OishiiBox purchase is donated to UNICEF!
Another thing that really impressed me was that they included a fully typed-out sheet of the ingredients and allergen information for every item included in the box.
The Box: OishiiBox
The Cost: $12/month

Kameda Kakinotane Wasabi Snack
Baby Cookie Snack
Bunny Rabbit Eraser
I’m not a fan of wasabi, so these pouches of wasabi snacks will be passed along to a friend! These Baby Cookie Snacks had nice texture but they didn’t have much flavor, but were super sweet. It almost seemed like they were just flour and sugar.
Lotte Chocolate Pie
Chocolate Panda Biscuits
This chocolate pie was really interesting – it was like two sponge cakes with a marshmallow in the middle coated in chocolate like a Hostess snack.
These Chocolate Panda Biscuits were really adorable – they were biscuit cookies with white and milk chocolate to make the face of a panda. Also, the Lotte Waffle was buttery and had a vanilla taste to it – I’m a fan!
Strawberry and Matcha Green Tea Kit Kats
Umaibou Vegetable Salad Snack
This Vegetable Salad Snack’s texture is like one giant cheeto. The taste wasn’t bad, actually, but it’s just one of those snacks that doesn’t even feel like food. Pocky, however, is always a huge hit in my house. The strawberry ones taste like PopTarts to me!
White Rabbit Creamy Candy
Lotte Koala’s March (Chocolate)
Fusen Melon Gum
Pokemon Hard Candy
I got a box of strawberry Koala March in last month’s Munchpak box, so these chocolate Koala March treats were actually familiar to me! They remind me of Hello, Panda!, another Asian, cream-filled cookie I love.
The Verdict: I was really impressed with the presentation of this box! I also like the variety of snacks and treats they included. I wasn’t really able to determine an approximate value because these labels aren’t in English, and I was only able to label the items by matching what I could from the included list and process of elimination. However, I realized that my list (and other reviews I’ve found) feature more products than I received – turns out I’m missing two items, the Otsumami 10 Sen Baked Rice Crackers and a Matcha Green Tea Crunch Bar.
Overall, I’m hopeful for this subscription box and think they have a good start. What do you think?
