TokyoTreat February 2018 Review
TokyoTreat sent a monthly booklet again! They had stopped a few months ago, but it seems that they are back to bringing each product featured in a handy booklet. Plus, is a section highlighting the February Lucky Treat items you can win and a step-by-step look at how to make this month’s DIY kit.
Now for the snacks!
Cola Gummies Share Pack – Estimated Value $5.50
I wasn’t able to find this fun share pack online, but I did an estimated value based on some other cola gummies I found. I love this share pack because they come in individual packets that you can rip off to eat on your own or give to a friend. The gummies are perfect with that sugar coating and strong cola flavor. I can’t wait to share these little gummies with some friends!
Pretty Cure DIY Shake Milkshake – Retail Value $3.35 (currently out of stock)
I received a similar DIY kit in a snack box past and loved it! Making this kit is so simple and so much fun. All you have to do is add milk, an ice cube, and the sugar packet. Cover and shake, shake, shake it up! The strawberry flavor is extra sweet and creamy. It really is sweet to the point that I could only take a few sips, but I could see this being a super fun kit to buy for someone younger that loves sugar.
Ginza Rusk Strawberry – Estimated Value $2.00
I wasn’t able to find these for sale online, but I have received this snack in the vanilla flavor and couldn’t put the box down. I was extra excited to see one of my favorite flavors, strawberry, this month! These little cookies are like a puffed rice cookie, crunchy yet so soft. Each bite is flavored with a creamy white chocolate, and this has that extra strawberry flavor. These are extra sweet and I love the pretty pink color. I found that my toddler loves these little cookies as well so I was happy to share these with him!
Ice Cream Lolly – Estimated Value $0.50
This is another snack that I wasn’t able to find online, but I wish I had because I loved it so much! This little lollipop was so rich and creamy, just like ice cream. I initially tasted a strong vanilla flavor that was followed by this amazing fruity flavor that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Getting a little lollipop like this is always a fun little treat, plus it is one that I can’t really share so I got to enjoy this all on my own!
Lotte Pie No Mi Sweet Strawberry Chocolate – Retail Value $2.99
This snack was so unique, unlike anything I think I have tried before! The monthly booklet notes that you can warm these up to give you that fresh out of the oven pie flavor and texture. These little puffs are handmade with cocoa puffs and have a pretty strawberry filling. The filling is very sweet with that bold strawberry flavor. Plus, this whole box is filled with the little pie so you can share these with your sweetheart.
Koikeya Sour Plum Chips – Retail Value $2.99
I don’t normally like plum flavored snacks, but these chips were really yummy! They reminded me of a salt and vinegar chip, which are one of my favorite chip flavors. There was that great mixture of sweet and salty with this bold tartness from the plums. The chips were super crunchy and light. I am so happy I got to try this snack!
Rose x Berry Glamatic Tablets – Estimated Value $1.00
I wasn’t able to find this snack online, but I love how unique this packaging is. I will admit, it took me a minute to figure out how to get the tablets out, but they basically just spill out of the side once you move a tab over. These little candies were soft like a sweet tart. I think they are meant to act like a mint because the monthly booklet notes that they will make your breath smell great. They are flavored with rose and berry so they are sweet yet tart. So unique, especially if they are in fact a mint!
Shrimp Mayonnaise Umaibo – Buy a 50 pack for $11.98
I have come to love Umaibo after trying so many of them! This month’s flavor had a strong shrimp smell and taste, which I loved. It was creamy and crunchy, the perfect salty treat. These are my husband’s favorite snack so I shared it with him and he couldn’t get over how much it tasted like a seafood seasoning, similar to an Old Bay. So delicious!
This little snack wasn’t listed in the monthly booklet at all. It reminded me of the Ginza Rusk but in chocolate with a little Umaibo texture to it. It was very chocolatey with a big crunch. I’m not complaining that I got this extra snack, it was so yummy!
The Verdict: This month’s TokyoTreat was filled with so many yummy treats! With this being the February box, there were so many sweet treats, perfect for Valentine’s Day, and snacks that are made for sharing. My husband always gets so excited when TokyoTreat arrives so I was happy to see that there were so many snacks this month that we didn’t have to “call dibs” on, we were able to share pretty much everything! The curation each month is always so much fun, especially when it matches a theme or holiday, and the snacks are really unique.
