Information on the featured snack, instructions for the DIY candy kit, and even some trivia about Japan!
This month’s drink is Uji Matcha Jelly. It contains matcha jelly and a vanilla liquid, and you shake the bottle to break up the jelly so you get a combination of little pieces of jelly with the smooth drink. This has a pretty unusual texture with the combination of jelly and liquid, but these kinds of drinks are very popular in Japan! The bitter matcha is a nice contrast to the sweet vanilla.
These are mini KitKats, in Cookie and Cream and Strawberry Cheesecake flavours. The flavours are current seasonal varieties.
This month’s featured snack is these Pineapple & Coconut Marshmallows. They come in two shapes, each with a different flavour. A nice tropical twist on a traditional candy.
The party pack is this bag of Butter Toast and Sesame Biscuits. There are four bags of each flavour of mini biscuits, and have a nice savory crunch.
Another unusual flavour combination in Koikeya Tempura Matcha Salt Chips. This crisps combine tempura and matcha flavouring for a savory blend.
Chocolate Mint Twigs are little mint chocolate sticks with tiny crunchy bits. This box contains 11 packs or 4 twigs.
These are Okara Cheesecake Cookies contain extra fibre, vitamins, calcium, and iron, all in a crunchy cheesecake biscuit bar.
These are some of my favourites! Poteko Potato Rings Share Pack are four little packages of crunchy salty potato rings, rather like Hula Hoops.
This month’s anime snack is Pretty Cure Chocolate Wafer. It’s a crunchy chocolate wafer with a set of cute nail stickers in the pack.
Umaibo (delicious stick) are another favorite, and this crunchy corn tube is cheese flavoured. Yum!
The Dagashi this month are Konpeito (a traditional Japanese sugar candy) and this Grape Soda Gummy.
Finally, this month’s DIY Candy Kit is Water Candy DIY. It contains three different flavoured liquid candies that you mix and match to make new flavours.
One of the best things about this month’s box is that there are no seafood-based snacks so I can eat everything!
There are some great unusual things to try as well, the jelly drink and the matcha potato chips being the most special. I also love the pineapple and coconut marshmallows, they are a great combination of flavours for the summer.
There is a great balance of sweet and savory, especially all the savory crunchy things!It’s also terrific that there are several things with individual packages, such as the Mint Twigs and the party pack. It’s so tempting to eat everything up, so I like to have some help with portion control!
Oh, and more KitKats to try! Japanese KitKats come is such an amazing array of flavours, I’m always pleased to have new ones.
Whether you’re a foodie yourself, or know someone who would appreciate unusual and delicious snacks, this is the perfect way to experience new flavours and textures!
