Time for another TokyoTreat review!

Each box will contain an assortment of premium candies, snacks, and beverages — all sourced and shipped directly from Japan.

There are 3 different subscription options to choose from. The Small Box is $14.99/month (includes 5-7 items), The Regular Box is $24.99/month (8-12 items plus a sushi candy kit), and The Premium Box is $34.99/month (13-17 items including a DIY candy kit, beverage, and special bonus item). All boxes including FREE shipping worldwide!
I recently received a Premium Box for review, so…
Let’s see what’s in the April 2016 TokyoTreat box!
The big orange box ships all the way from Japan.
A peek inside.
A 16-page, full-color booklet featured info on all of the items in the box, along with mini contests, fun facts about Japanese culture, and more. April’s box celebrated their first anniversary!
Crunchy Panda Z – We’ve gotten these little crunchy panda cookies in another box and my girls LOVED them. What’s better than bite-sized panda-shaped chocolate cookies?
Meiji’s Pucca Chocolate – Okay, while not quite as cute as pandas, these chocolate-filled sea creature biscuits are a close second. 😉 Sweet, crispy cookies/biscuits on the outside with a smooth creamy chocolate filling inside.
Sakura Pepsi – How cool is this? — A limited edition bottle of sakura cherry blossom flavored Pepsi! The label itself looks so pretty against the pink soda that I almost don’t even want to drink it. 😉 I will, but I’m saving it for a special occasion. I believe(?) these are only available in Japan. Very cool!
Carrot Chopped Rice Cake – One of my kiddos is absolutely obsessed with carrots, so I’m sure she’s going to claim this carrot rice treat when she sees it. Inside are mini crunchy rice crisps that look like smaller versions of our Rice Krispies.
Raw Ramune Candy – Ramune is a popular soda drink in Japan, which these candies are made to mimic. You can eat them as-is, or pop ’em in the freezer for whole different tasting experience.
Meiji’s Plum Pati-Chan – These look to be the Japanese equivalent to our Pop Rocks candy that pop & fizz when you put them in your mouth. The flavor is plum, described in the info booklet as both bitter and sweet.
Calbee BBQ Flavored Sapporo Potato Snacks – Ooh! These waffle-shaped potato chips look really good! They’re bbq flavored and I really wish the label included English ingredients so I knew whether or not they were vegan-friendly. (Actually, I wish ALL of these packages had ingredients in English. 🙁 )
Wasabi Grilled Seaweed – I’ve never seen seaweed come in bite-sized pieces before. Definitely easier to eat than a whole sheet of it. 😉
Baby Star Bonito Kelp Udon – An instant noodle bowl flavored with bonito and kelp (seaweed). Just add boiling water, wait 5 minutes, and enjoy.
Chocolate Monaca – This big chocolate wafer-like bar is a popular treat in Japan that features a crispy vanilla biscuit outside with rice crisps & chocolate filling on the inside. I think I need to find a vegan version of this STAT!
Karamucho Hot Chili Flavored Chips – A giant bag of super spicy potato chips with hot chili powder generously sprinkled on each one. Yum!
Chocolate Flour & Green Tea Flavored Mochi – A DIY candy kit that includes little white flour discs, creamy chocolate, and mochi green tea powder. To make the treats, just add a little water to the discs, dip them into the chocolate, then coat ’em in green tea powder. Easy!
Baby Star Yakisoba Sauce Flavor – Dried and baked yakisoba noodles. — A traditional Japanese snack!
Lotte’s Koala March Seasonal Custard Pudding Flavor – Koala March is a majorly popular treat in Japan and is right up there on the cuteness scale with the panda biscuits. 😉 I know we’ve tried the chocolate-filled ones before, but this one is a special seasonal custard pudding flavor that I’m guessing my kiddos will enjoy just as much.
Hello Kitty & Doraemon Purse – Woohoo! Finally a Hello Kitty item! I always hope to get something Hello Kitty related in Japanese boxes because my girls are BIG fans. (Okay, I am too.) This cute Hello Kitty/Doraemon purse was included in Premium boxes and came in a variety of different designs.
TokyoTreat is always such a fun box to open. They pack SO many neat snacks into each one and I love that they include a non-food item in the Premium boxes as well. Plus free shipping worldwide! Can’t argue with that. 😉
April 2016 TokyoTreat Review
Such a fantastic box for anyone who loves Japanese culture and snacks! Thrilled to get a Hello Kitty item this month too! 😀
