There’s also instructions for this month’s DIY candy kit.

This month’s drink is Minute Maid Craftz Cherry & Peach. This is a lovely spring flavour, and it also contains sakura essence to give it an extra floral taste.

These are dagashi, a Shin Chan gummy on the left, and Thomas the Train Engine Chewy Candy in grape flavour on the right. Shin Chan is a popular anime character, and Thomas is also very famous in Japan!

This Chocopie Party Pack contains eight little cakes, which are filled with marshmallow and covered with chocolate.

These Cheese Puffs are from one of the most famous anime series, Dragon Ball. As well as lovely crunchy puffs, the pack also contains a collectible trading card.

Boruto Hand Gummy are flavoured like a Japanese energy drink, sweet and sour pineapple.

This pack of Boruto Pineapple Jellies contains seven individual pots of pineapple jelly. Each pot also has a picture of a character from the anime series on the lid.

Splatoon Gummies are melon and orange gummies in the squid shapes from the Nintendo game.

This month’s DIY kit is a One Piece Bubbly Jelly. It includes a reusable cup, and creates a tww-layered bubbly and jelly melon-flavored drink.

These Sriracha Rice Chips are crunchy and spicy, and are also gluten free!

This month’s Umaibo is Mentaiko flavoured, which is salted pollock roe. It’s much nicer than it sounds!

Another dagashi snack, this is Don Taro Udon Snack. Crunchy dried noodles flavoured like udon soup.

This month’s sharing pack is Senzu Bean Edamame Snacks. They are crunchy little sticks made with edamame beans.

Finally, Shin-Chan Chocobi Almond Corn Puff. These sweet and crunchy corn stars are flavoured like almond tofu, a popular dessert in Japan. Each pack also contains a sticker.

This month’s anime theme is a lot of fun! Almost all the snacks feature a famous character or franchise, and it’s great to see the fantastic packaging that comes with this theme.

There are a couple of more unusual flavours, such as the Umaibo and the Almond Tofu Chocobi. One of the best things about this box is being able to try things that you wouldn’t find in regular supermarkets.

Five snacks this month are savory, which is great! I especially like the Edamame Bean snacks, they’re salty and delicious. Having four little packs is great for portion control too.

This month’s drink is also lovely, cherry and peach is a great flavour combination and perfect now the weather has cheered up!

These snacks are rarely, if ever, available in the UK, so tracking down prices isn’t really possible. However I can say that I’m always totally confident that the value is excellent, especially when you consider the wonderful selection of things you wouldn’t find outside Japan.

Our score: 9.4/ 10

This is a great fun theme this month, and a terrific selection of flavours and textures, plus the fun of finding your favourite anime characters!
