Let’s see what’s in the July 2016 Skoshbox Japan Box!
As with all Skoshbox boxes, the Japan Box was covered in cuteness.
A peek inside!
A full-color information booklet listed all of the items in all 3 sizes of the July Skoshbox. Ingredients were also included for each one.
Matcha Truffle Chocolates – This package contains individually wrapped matcha flavored truffles that look delicious. They’re made with real green tea, cacao mass, milk powder, and other natural ingredients. If I weren’t vegan, these would already be long gone. 😉
Pure Gummy Blood Orange Gummy Candy – Sugar-coated gummy candies with a sweet, gooey blood orange center. Another item I would have already devoured if I ate gelatin. I love blood orange flavored candy.
Pompompurin Pudding Pop – Can this packaging get any cuter?? Inside is one pudding flavored lollipop. 🙂
Shiso Plum Flavored Sora Mame Bean Snack – It looks like these crunchy plum-flavored beans are the sole vegan-friendly snack in the box. While I’m glad to see something I can personally try, I’m a little nervous to find out what plum-flavored beans actually taste like. (Beany plums?)
Dekavita C Drink – I’ve gotten many different energy drinks for review, but never one from Japan. Pretty neat! It also looks like it might be vegan-friendly too.
Jersey Milk Cookies – A full-sized box of moist, chewy Jersey milk flavored cookies. While the photo shows what looks to be a chocolate chip cookie, the ingredients only list white chocolate (not cocoa), so I’m not totally sure if chocolate chips are involved here.
Jajachoco Honey Butter – Welp, this is one item that I totally don’t mind not being vegan-friendly. 😉 It looks like these are honey-butter coated potato chips. Ingredients include potato pellets, milk powder, cocoa butter, cheese powder, honey, butter, and more. (Yikes!)
Hello Kitty Ichigo Marshmallow – Yay! A Hello Kitty snack! This adorable package contains four little fluffy marshmallows with a pink strawberry filling.
Sequoia Matcha Choco Wafer – This kinda looks like a Japanese take on a traditional Kit Kat bar. It features crispy wafers surrounded by chocolate and matcha green tea flavoring.
Sour Switch Cola Gummies – Cola-flavored gummy candies that switch from sweet to sour (or sour to sweet?).
Milky Candy – Another adorably packaged treat! This box contains individually wrapped, soft and creamy milk-flavored candies.
Baked Apple Chocolates – Pop these tiny apple-flavored squares in the toaster for a few seconds for a warm & tasty treat.
Kaomoji-Neko – The optional mystery accessory for the Dekabox (automatically included in Japan Box) was this crazy cute “bottle of emoji cats”! I have no idea where I’m going to put this tiny vessel of cuteness, but I LOVE it. 🙂
Re-Ment Rilakkuma Blind Box Toy – Also exclusive to the Japan Box was this adorable Rilakkuma Kaiten Sushi Mascot blind box toy. It looks like there are 8 different sushi-themed sets to collect in all. I received the “dessert” set which included all of the tiny pieces in my photo above. So cute! (FYI: This is currently selling for $11.95 on Amazon!)
The July Japan Box from Skoshbox was absolutely packed with snacks, treats, and trinkets! While I can’t personally eat the majority of the items, I’m sure my kiddos will love ’em. Plus, I’m now the proud owner of bottled emoji cats! 😉 — Remember, you can use coupon code “ROSEBUDS2” at checkout to save $2 on any subscription plan!
