WOWBOX is a Japanese snacks and sweets subscription service that offers multiple themed boxes.

Currently there are four themes in various sizes (Small, Regular, or Large). The Fun & Tasty Box is the original box filled with "all the fun, tasty, and weird treats that Japan is known for," including DIY kits. The Kawaii & Beauty Box contains kawaii packaged beauty-themed products as well as low-calorie snacks and health-conscious treats. The New & Limited Box contains new, limited, or exclusive items that are hot off the shelves from Japan. The Dagashi Box is a mini-sized snack box filled with traditional dagashi treats "from a bygone era."

This box was packed full of a number of different treats - including one DIY candy kit!

Descriptions, nutrition facts, and allergy information can be found online in the account information section.



Wa Fusen Candy

I don't handle sour candy well - so, to me, these were SUPER sour - I like the little beachball pattern on each candy, though. Each bag has watermelon, lemon, strawberry, and grape flavors.



Ichigo Marshmallow

These were delicious little marshmallow clouds with a drop of strawberry filling at the center. It was dangerously easy to keep popping these little marshmallows - they were great!



Pure Gummy Inner Support Mix Berry Yogurt

Again, these were a bit sour for me. I typically add collagen powder to my coffee since it's tasteless and dissolves completely. It's great for your joints in general, so candy is an easy way to get more!



Yasai Seikatsu (Hokkaido Berry Mix)

This little fruit drink really brought me back to my days with Capri Sun. It's really exactly how you'd image it tasting. The straw was interesting, instead of the typically bending straw you'd find in the United States, this one was extendable (which also made it lose some suction, though).



Cream Genmai Bran (Maple Nuts & Granola)

These were one of my favorite items in the box. To me, they tasted a bit little syrupy pancakes - and you can't really go wrong there. They're crunchy, but not hard to crumble, and consist of two wafers with a maple filling.



Dodotto Trubupyon (Grape)

This was the DIY candy kit! It has everything you need to make your own little candy - it was quite the adventure for us since we didn't really have directions, we went with a video to a similar kit:


All you'll need is some water and the numbered packets included in the kit - it was really easy.

The end product was actually really tasty! The pink portion were little droplets from the squid tool that made little gummy droplets - they kind of looked like little caviar pieces. While the yellow half was sort of a fluff material. Noth sides were topped off with a sugary candy crushed pieces. Mix both sides and enjoy!


Maho Tsukai Precure Gum

This contained 3 pieces of gum-like candy and was probably the most straight-forward and basic candy this month.



Waka Gokoro Pop (Kuromistu Kinako & Uma Shio)

While I'm not 100% sure - this popcorn seemed like a kettle corn mixed with chocolate-covered kettle corn. It was good, and the chocolate-covered pieces were very thickly covered - I think I'd take a bag of just the chocolate covered pieces!



Peko X Hello Kitty Milky Cream Cookie

These were really tasty! This is a tray, filled with individually wrapped vanilla filled wafers.


They're soft little wafers with a milky vanilla filling.



Friend Ramune Disney

These were very much like PEZ candies, both in taste and with the container. Minnie's head twists revealing and opening for candy dispensing. While they're basic, I really enjoy them.



Salad Usuyaki

These were the only item this month that I flat out disliked. These chips have a fishy/caviar taste to them, which was the most unpleasant surprise of my day! I just got some nutritional facts in English and see that they include fish extract power - mystery solved!

Verdict: I had a really good time testing out snacks from Japan! I really enjoyed the majority of them, and had fun creating our own little gummy candies, too! I also enjoyed that adventure that was not knowing what the items were at all, and just diving in - while it didn't work out well for a couple snacks, all of the others were pleasant surprises!
