This is the Japan Candy Box April 2018! As usual, there will be a giveaway at the end of this post where you have the chance to win a Japan Candy Box, so ikeep on continue reading! ;) Let’s see what delicious sweets I received this time:
Japan Candy Box is a Japanese sweets subscription box by Blippo. Apart from the Japan Candy Box they also have the Kawaii Box, which contains cute toy items, stationary, tiny plushies and so on. I’m very happy to be able to show you the Japan Candy Box April 2018! I love to try out sweets and food from different countries and one thing I especially love about Japanese products is the cute packaging design and the little details they include to make the product most enjoyable. I knew some of the products already from other snack boxes, but there were some new and also delicious discoveries, too!
The Japan Candy Box comes in a cardboard box with purple print. Everything here screams already “cute” just from looking at the box. The cute theme is continued inside and here we have the new description card. But instead of the usual card they have now changed it to a brochure.
Now we see small illustrations to each of the products along with the description, which makes it so much easier to know what is what. Still, the box is filled with 10 different products, varying from sweet to salty. The topic of this month is of course the Sakura Season! Cherry blossoms are always am important thing in Japan, but the season is also about being together and havinf picknicks outside.
Let’s see what we have inside this time:
Kit Kat Dark Chocolate Mini Bar
Japanese dark chocolate version of Kit Kats. The flavor is written as ‘otona no amasa’ which translates to ‘adults’ sweetness’. This Kit Kat combined the crunchy waver with dark chocolate.
Pocky Natural Strawberry Biscuit Sticks
Who loves Pocky Sticks? I do! I’m always looking for some when I’m in an asian grocery shop. These sweet strawberry Pocky sticks have no artificial colors or flavorings and the packaging design is so adorable!
Kabaya Puchi Purin Pudding Chocolates
Another perfect packaging design! This cup looks even like a pudding cup, but inside are tiny mini chocolates shaped like traditional Japanese pudding.
Kasugai Rose Aroma Ramune Candy
Love the packaging here again! Somehow it reminds me of a sheet mask or skincare packaging though! These are rose flavored ramune candy blended with catechin and rose petal extract.
Meiji Fruit Gumi Peach Gummy Candy
One of the best selling soft candy in Japan! I had these in another box already and enjoyed them. They are made with concentrated, real peach juice preserving the real fruit taste.
Koikeya Scorn Wafu BBQ Corn Snacks
Now on to some salty snacks. Here are salty and savory Japanese-style barbecue flavored corn puffs. Barbecue is always a good joice when it comes to snacks.
Tohato Caramel Corn Snacks
The delicious taste of caramel and the crispiness of the corn puffs make these a perfect snack!
Yaokin Umaibo Snack Natto Flavor
Umaibo or “delicious stick” in Japanese is a puffed corn snack. This one is flavored with Natto, fermented soya bean powder.
Tomica Ramune Candy
Soda flavor ramune candies in the shapes of cars and other popular Tomica toys.
Popin’ Cookin’ Kuru Kuru Takoyaki DIY Candy Kit
A japanese snack or candy subscription always needs a DIY Kit! This one is a set for making the popular Japanese street food snack Takoyaki (octopus balls) from candy ingredients.
The Japan Candy Box April 2018 was full of versatile candy and snacks from Japan as always. I’m especially loving the japanese chocolates and I’m always excited to try new ones.
