TokyoTreat March 2018 Review
I really enjoyed the detailed booklet that accompanied this subscription box. Great descriptions of each item as well as other ways to enjoy the treats!
These marshmallows use sakura flower essence as a natural flavoring and I have to say, they taste like a sweet flower. I would love to try some of these on top of a hot cocoa.
Shimi Choco Corn Milky Red Bean
These little Azuki (red bean) flavored treats are super addicting. I initially thought the overwhelming aroma coming from the bag was strawberry…but I was wrong! The super unusual texture is crunchy but soft at the same time. A really unique snack item.
Chocolate Kinako Mochi – Retail Value $2.08
This a DIY kit, similar to Fun Dip, where you dip your mochi into chocolate or kinako (roasted soybean powder) or both! The kit includes detailed instructions in the included booklet on how to have the most fun with your mochi kit!
Sweet Soy Sauce Cracker Share Pack
These super crunchy little crackers are sweet and savory. Each share pack is the perfect size for snacking during the day. The sweet soy sauce flavor packs a punch!
Salty Split Pea Sticks
I’m not usually into veggie crisp type snacks, but these were really good. They are basically a pea flavored puff. And there’s just enough salt to be tasty, but not overpowering. It’s a very refreshing little snack.
Veggie Salad Umaibo – Retail Value $0.14
The first words out of my mouth after biting into this was “well, that’s unusual”. This is a giant corn puff tube with a veggie salad flavor. I’m thinking there may be some seaweed or kelp in it based on the flavors and scent I got from it. Not bad, but a little odd.
Well, I tried it. I didn’t finish it. LOL. The seafood aroma that emanates from the package when you open it is a little overwhelming. I love squid, but this was a little too hard and plastic-like to enjoy.
Puccho Gummy – Hoppe-Chan Cherry
These are adorable. The tiniest little gummies I’ve ever seen in a cute little container. Hoppe-Chan is a popular Japanese character and the gummies and the gummy shapes represent it. I’m not positive about the flavor, but I think it is strawberry.
Ginger Tea Hard Candy
Oddly enough, these were my favorite item in this month’s box. I’ve been recovering from a cold and these were perfect! The ginger was very soothing, even though it’s a little spicy. I’d definitely throw these in my bag to have every day.
Verdict: The Japanese packaging is always so fun and exciting, even if what may be inside is squid jerky. I had trouble finding most of the items for purchase, which is a bummer but also means that the stuff in the box is rare in the US and is a real treat! I really need to find those ginger tea candies somewhere though. I really enjoyed them.
To Wrap Up:
Can I still get this box if I sign up today? No, you will get the May box.
