Nandemobox is a fun subscription box from Japan. They offer 2 different box options: a Snack Box and a Kawaii Box. This is a review of their snack box for the month of April.
Nandemobox is based out of Osaka, Japan and sends subscribers every kind of snack or fun Japanese novelty item you can think of (“Nandemo” is Japanese for “everything”!). They believe in quality over quantity and carry only the best products available.
The snack box starts at $25/month and includes 8-12 different snacks. The kawaii box starts at $35/month and includes 6-8 items (plushies, stationery, stickers, keychains, etc). Discounts are available for multi-month commitments. Free shipping is included worldwide!
Let’s see what’s in April’s Nandemobox Snack Box!
It’s always so neat to get packages all the way from Japan!
A helpful info sheet listed everything in the box, along with photos and descriptions. Considering everything on the labels is in Japanese, this sheet really comes in handy! April’s box is themed “Cherry Blossoms & Picnics” and features items perfect for taking along on a picnic beneath the cherry blossom trees.
A peek inside… So colorful!
Sono-manma Gumballs – I received 2 packages of these — one in grape flavor and the other in peach. They’re described as being soft with a slightly sour taste. The packaging appears to show a liquid filling, but since none of the ingredients are in English (and I’m vegan), I’m not able to sample them. I’ll leave that up to my husband and kiddos.
Lotte Fruitio Grape Gum – A grape gum with a strong fruit flavor. Hopefully I can find ingredients for this cos I love all things grape.
Country Ma’am Strawberry Cookies – This is April’s featured item to celebrate spring… A full sized package of strawberry-flavored cookies. Mmm! It looks like they have both chocolate and strawberry chips inside. Instructions on the label suggest warming them in the toaster or microwave for a truly decadent treat.
Stick Potato Chips – Potato sticks! The red package (Kuramucho) is a spicy hot pepper flavor, and the yellow package (Nori-Shio) is flavored with seaweed sea salt.
Chelsea Strawberry Candy Mix – Okay, I reeeeally need to find English ingredients for these because they look SO good! They’re individually wrapped strawberry, caramel, and maybe strawberries n’ cream(?) flavored candies. I’m hoping at least the strawberry ones are vegan-friendly.
Bourbon Baum Rolls – These are lemon-flavored cakes coated in white frosting. Definitely perfect for taking along on a picnic.
Kracie Tonton Undoukai – DIY candy kits are super popular in Japan and Nandemobox sends one in every snack box. This particular kit is sports-themed and on the back of the package are full instructions on how to assemble the pieces. There are also tutorials on YouTube. I would have loved this sort of thing when I was a kid!
Yakinori & Salad Senbei – Two different flavored rice crackers were included. On the left is a salad rice cracker, which is said to have a salty flavor. The one on the right is soy-sauce flavored topped with a sheet of dry seaweed.
Rilakkuma – This was included as a little bonus item for reviewing the box. I have no idea what the actual product is, but I found out that “Rilakkuma” means “bear in relaxed mood”. I was wondering why the package said “I’m always feeling relaxed”. Makes sense.
This was such a fun box! I love checking out snacks from other countries (even if I can’t eat them myself). Japanese snacks are especially interesting and always so dang colorful!

April 2015 Nandemobox Review
A fun box of Japanese treats! A nice mix of salty and sweet. Great for anyone looking to discover new snacks that can’t be easily found in the US.
