It’s another subscription box!!
I love subscription boxes. The anticipation each month not knowing what’s going to be inside the box. Could be something nice or could be something awful.
I also love sweets and especially trying new sweets.
Therefore combine the two and I’m in heaven.
Taste Japan is a monthly box of mouthwatering Japanese treats delivered to your doorstep for only £15/month!
It’s a selection of hand picked treats and candy a straight from Japan. Things we just cannot get here in the UK.
Here is what I got in my September package.
As you can see there is a lot there. 11 individual products in total.
Japanese candies and snacks really differ from what we can buy over here. First in the packaging which is much much brighter and colourful and really stands out. Obviously they are covered in Japanese writing but with Taste Japan you get a helpful guide explaining what each one is. They also differ in taste too and I find the snacks and sweets have far more flavour than the stuff we have.
The contents will change each month to give subscribers a wide variety of what Japan has on offer. The boxes will also contain seasonal Japanese goodies plus interesting info on Japan plus trivia and even competitions.
My box included a mixture of both sweet and savoury snacks. The first one we all tried is Summer Pocky. Pocky is I believe a popular Japanese snack and is essentially biscuit sticks dipped into chocolate. The ones we have are Acai & Berry flavour and are very nice and fruity.
The Nameko snacksremind me a little of chocolate cereal but more lighter and puffier. They are chocolate flavour corn puffs and appear to be mushroom shaped.
Also some Juicy Colour ball & Suppai une goyoushin both of these being gummy candy.
A few little Marshmallow treats (Marshmallow Daifuku) and a cookie snack which has a very long name.
The Japanese are quite well known for selling sweet kits which you have to make yourself. There was one included in my box too (Horadekita DIY Lolly which was really just lollies to dip. No photograph as kids ate before I could take one.
Now the savoury selection which I have to say are quite unusual when it comes to flavours.
cabbage taro & Wasabi Nori
That’s cabbage corn puffs and a Wasabi seaweed snack. Very strange! The cabbage puffs were not too bad but I was not too keen on the Wasabi one.
Finally there was a Mixed Tsunami a tidal wave combo of popular Jap Snacks.
The package of goodies was enjoyed by all. If you want one of these then head over to Taste Japan. You can pay with paypal and the £15 even includes shipping too.
