A peek inside!
A 2-page info sheet included a list of every item in the box, along with each item’s flavor, main ingredients, and possible allergens.
Puku Puku Tai
This sweet treat is shaped like a Taiyaki (traditional Japanese fish-shaped cake) and consists of a light, crispy wafer filled with an aerated chocolate filling. It looks delicious and I’m sure my chocolate-obsessed kiddos will love it!
These crispy, chicken-flavored snacks consist of four individual disks and are seasoned with soy sauce and other natural flavors.
Baby Star Ramen
A great choice for ramen lovers, this snack features crunchy noodles with the same salty/savory flavor as real chicken flavored ramen noodles.
Nigi-Nigi Gummy Osushiya-San
You can create your own tiny sushi gummies with this DIY candy kit. It includes 3 different gummy flavors — peach, lemon, and banana. (I’m not sure what the “white” flavor is…)
These baked snack sticks are similar to pretzels and are covered in a lightly salted flavor seasoning.
These little chocolate bars consist of a cocoa-flavored cookie mixed with Japanese-style rice puffs, then coated with smooth chocolate. Yum!
These matcha flavored Kit Kats are a popular treat in Japan. They’re made with premium matcha from Uji city in Kyoto Prefecture, which is known for their exceptional green tea.
These cylindrical-shaped corn snacks are a super popular snack in Japan. They come in a ton of different unique flavors including the ones shown here: Takoyaki, Corn Potage, and Yakitori (Japanese skewered chicken).
Chewy caramel squares studded with pieces of real California almonds.
This sweet treat consists of chewy strawberry flavored gummy pieces covered in a rich chocolate shell.
A common snack in Japan, kakinotane is a combination of small crescent-shaped pieces of senbei (rice crackers) and peanuts. They come in a variety of flavors, with this one (according to the info sheet) being chili pepper.
Bakauke is a thin, banana-shaped rice cracker that comes in many different flavors. The one above is seaweed.
Super Mario Peloty
Both of my girls are super into video games right now, so I’m sure they’ll be fighting over this adorable Mario-shaped chocolate lollipop! 😉
These soft & crunchy ring puffs are made with corn and have a savory cheese flavor.
These chewy grape-flavored gummy candies are made with real fruit juice and contain no artificial flavors or colors.
Another crunchy corn-based snack, these ones are flavored with small pieces of nori and Japanese brown sauce.
These tiny crackers are shaped like various sea creatures and have a slightly salty flavor.
Sakura Sticky Memo (Surprise Gift)
March’s surprise bonus gift was this cute sticky note pad in the shape of a pretty pink sakura flower. It has 40 sheets and comes with its own little cardboard “stand”. Cute!
Wow! — The March 2019 Japan Okashi Box was absolutely packed with authentic Japanese snacks and treats. It was amazing how many items they were able to fit inside this single box. There were actually 21 items in all, not including the bonus gift. Crazy! — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 20% on your first box with coupon code “2LITTLEROSEBUDS“!
