The festive season is fast approaching, so this month’s theme is perfect, not to mention a great pun: Merry Snackmas!

There’s a full list of the goodies inside the box, and what looks like a couple of fantastic exclusive items.

Pepsi Caramel Punch. Japan produces fantastic flavours of soft drinks, and this limited edition version is no different. It’s the classic Pepsi flavour with extra caramel and just a tiny hint of salt.

KitKat Sparkling Wine. Japan also does incredible types of KitKats, and this one is perfect festive celebrations. The sparkling wine flavour has a hint of strawberry in the white chocolate, and really does bring to mind the taste of strawberries and champagne.

Melty Kiss Matcha. These are rich dark chocolates with a delicious matcha tea centre. The slight bitterness of the matcha goes perfectly with the chocolate for a proper grow-up flavour.

Three little candies here, Rolling Candy Soda Flavour, a refreshing cider flavour chewy sweet; Christmas Chocolate Daifuku which is a lovely Christmas-themed chocolate filled marshmallow; and Cider Gummy, a chewy gummy candy.

Christmas Fugashi. Fugashi is a light and crispy sweet treat flavoured with brown sugar. They often come with seasonal packaging, and this Christmas version is very cute indeed.

Scone Genovese Cheese. These light crispy snacks are flavoured with cheese and herbs for a lovely savory treat.

Tirol Choco Mochi. These are a fancy version of the traditional chewy Japanese rice cakes, coated in dark chocolate with a chocolate filling.

Pokemon Christmas Party Choco Corn. This is one of a selection of fun festive packaging for this yummy chocolate corn snack.

Umaibo Tonkatsu Sauce Flavour. Umaibo is a crispy corn puff in the shape of a cylinder and comes in a multitude of flavours. This one is slightly spicy tonkatsu sauce flavour for a warming winter taste.

Strawberry Roll Cream Cake. This is rather like a mini Swiss roll, and is filled with delicious strawberry cream.

Umaibo Rings Sugar Rusk. Most Umaibo are savoury flavours, but this one, which is like slices of the classic Umaibo corn stick, is flavoured like the famous Japanese sugar rusk snack.

Lucky Corn Salty Flavour. These are simple but delicious salted corn puffs, and the luck part is for the new year!

Premium Umaiboo Camembert Cheese. This premium version of the famous corn puff snack is extra large and extra flavoursome. This camembert version really captures the flavour of the cheese!

Mashro. This is a lovely chewy little candy, a little like a marshmallow, and perfect for a quick sweet treat.

Sour Soda Gum. You can make a fun game from this candy, as one of these three pieces of bubble gum is super sour!

 

Our score: 9.4/ 10

There are some really superb items this month. The Pepsi and KitKats are standout, as always, it's such a treat to be able to sample these special flavours. I also really like the cheese snacks, as IU'm a big fan of the savory items too. I'm glad there were a couple of Christmas-theme items, though of course it would have been nice to have a couple more because of the time of year. But regardless, this is a really tasty combination with some great fun flavours and items!
