My Japan Box KitKat April 2018 Review
Citrus Baseball KitKats
I’ve seen these pop up in previous KitKat box reviews and was always curious about them. They’ve got a surprising amount of citrus zip to them. It’s a flavor that actually complements the creamy coating and light wafers well!
Easter Banana KitKats
Oof, I do not dig banana flavors. Real banana, I love. But put it into a candy or chocolate and things are usually kind of sickly sweet and overpowering. All that said, I liked these KitKats more than I thought I would. The flavor reminds me of banana PEZ candy, where it a little smoother and mild. (There’s not a bitter chemical aftertaste.) Still, they’re not something I would reach for again.
Easter Chocolate KitKats
A few of these KitKat bags had melty bars inside, but the chocolate ones look like they were hit with the heat the worst. This Easter-themed bag is full of standard milk chocolate KitKats, which I love. It’s hard to improve on a classic, y’know? Even if it’s a little melty around the edges…
Okay, these guys are looking a little smushed up, too. But the creamy, sweet raspberry flavor is delicious (and feels kind of summertime-y, too), and it’s hard not to love something that comes in such a pretty pink packaging. If they weren’t so smushy, I might use these pink bars to top cupcakes or to set out alongside some rosé for a super-girly get-together.
Verdict: My Japan Box KitKat box is definitely full of surprises. If you’ve got a picky palate, there’s a good chance this subscription isn’t for you. But if out-of-the-ordinary flavors excite you, then I feel like this is a really fun way to treat yourself. I bet it’d be fun for kids, too—each KitKat is small enough that it’d be a fun dessert to get in a brown bag lunch, especially if the kids don’t know which flavors showed up that month! I will say that the box is a little expensive for candy. (Each flavor cost me an average of $7.25 via this subscription.) Other similar Japanese flavors go for around $6.00. That said, you’re paying for authenticity and curation with this subscription—if that’s worth the extra dollar or so per bag to you, then this could be a fun one for you and your family.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. since boxes are mailed at the beginning of the month, it looks like you have until the end of May to sign up for June.
Value Breakdown: The box cost $29.00, meaning each of the 4 flavors has an average value of $7.25.
