I recently received a Premium Box for review, so…
Let’s see what’s in the January 2016 ToykoTreat box!
The big orange box was was covered in cool graphics and shipped via Japan Post.
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.
Yokai-Watch Fortune Seal Namaste Curry – A crunchy curry flavored corn snack featuring the character Geragerapo from the hit anime series Yokai Watch. The package also includes a collectable sticker with a fortune printed on it.
Oekaki Kyanland Candy – A super cute DIY candy kit that involves making your own animal-shaped candies using the included molds and edible colored paint. Fun!
Chocolate Ball Peanut – At first glance, I thought these were some kind of malted milk ball, but they’re actually chocolate covered peanuts. I love the goofy looking bird(?) on the package. 😉
Fuku Fuku Tai Chocolate – I’ve received this snack in a another snack subscription and I’m pretty sure it’s a chocolate wafer cookie type treat in the shape of a fish. I remember being surprised that it wasn’t seaweed or something more fish-y. Ha.
Pokemon Ramune 5 Pack – A Pokemon-themed strip of candies including five separate packages of different flavored treats. Flavors include grape, melon, cola, pineapple, and… cream soda?
Amazake High Quality Sweet Sake – A sweet non-alcoholic sake drink that’s often enjoyed during the New Year. The info card recommends drinking it warmed up for a special treat.
Tyrant Habanero – A dangerously spicy snack made with real habanero peppers. I love the evil-looking pepper guy on the bag — very foreboding!
Pokemon Sticker-Matching Chewing Gum – This packet contains a small piece of cola-flavored chewing gum and a collectible sticker & puzzle featuring the characters from Pokemon.
Pokemon Wafers – A square chocolate-filled wafer cookie with a hidden Pokemon monster hidden in the package. We’ve gotten a couple of these before and my kiddos loved ’em.
Pokemon Chewing Candy – Pineapple flavored candies (gum?) with Pokemon-themed wrappers that double as temporary tattoos.
Yokai-Watch Character Soft-Serve Ice Cream Caramel Corn – Ice-cream flavored caramel corn puffs featuring a character from Yokai-Watch on the package. I’m not sure how caramel corn can taste like ice cream, but there it is. 😉
Winter Pocky – Thanks to Japanese snack subscriptions, my girls are OBSESSED with Pocky! This is a limited edition flavor that features a dusting of cocoa powder over the traditional chocolate coated sticks.
Neru Neru Nerune Soda Flavor – According to the info booklet, this DIY candy kit has been popular in Japan for over 30 years. To make the treats, you mix the included ingredients with water and let it set overnight to “grow” into a fluffy puffed candy. Then use the colored candies to decorate and eat!
Pokemon Moncolle 12 Species Assortment – January’s special item of the month was a collectible Pokemon figurine. I don’t know anything about Pokemon, so I have no idea what this guy is. He’s gray, has 4 legs, a tail, and a helmet of some sort. So… yeah. 😉
Wow. That was a whole lotta snacks! TokyoTreat is clearly an awesome subscription box for anyone into trying new Japanese snacks & candies. There was a nice variety of sweet, salty, spicy, and savory snacks. The inclusion of a beverage and collectible toy was a fun touch too!
