My Japan Box KitKat June 2018 Review
Premium Mint KitKat – Retail Value $10.00
Oh, heck yea! I love mint, especially with chocolate so I can fully back this flavor. It’s also a new one finally! Yay! These taste a lot like my beloved thin mint Girl Scout cookies, but the wafer just isn’t chocolate. Unfortunately, these came melted once again since it’s summertime and also looks curiously like it was shipped from Germany (the barcode is from Deutsche Post).
Dark Chocolate KitKat – Retail Value $4.98
I think this is another flavor I haven’t received yet! Nothing too crazy here except that it’s made with dark instead of milk chocolate, so it has a slightly more bitter taste to it since there is more cocoa. These are really tasty (even melted).
Raspberry KitKat – Retail Value $5.59
Darnit! I couldn’t escape with at least one duplicate flavor. This raspberry one is really tasty and fruity but Anna received it in our April delivery. It has a bit of a tart zip to it that I really enjoy! I would certainly buy these if I came across them locally.
Verdict: My Japan Box KitKat sent me three flavors that I really liked, but it left me wondering how they choose what to send, as well why the quantity varies so much. If you’ve read my other reviews of this box, you’ll notice that the amount of KitKats I’ve received is all over the place. The total value this month is $20.57, so the $29.00 a month cost is also a little high when a lot of the flavors I receive can be found online for a cheaper price and sometimes even at my local Asian markets. Between not knowing how much I’ll actually receive, getting duplicate flavors almost every month, and the melting issue, I think it’s time for me to say goodbye to this subscription.
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 would receive June.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $29.00 + free shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box has an average cost of $9.67.
