You’ve got a full contents list in the menu booklet.

There’s also info about the theme (lots of strawberry apparently!) and also some notes on the featured snacks this month.

Straberry Daifuku Kitkat are definitely a uniquely Japanese variety! They combine white chocolate with a strawberry and red bean filling. This is certainly something you won’t find outside of Japan.

Blendy Sticks Hojicja Cafe au Lait are handy little packages of creamy instant hojicha (roasted green tea) tea. Perfetc for popping in your bag!

Honey & Apple Pure Gummies are a lovely combination of sweet and sour, as the sweet apple honey flavoured gummy comes with a sour sharp coating.

Caplica Strawberry & Chocolate Hearts are the perfect romantic treat! Little heart-shaped chocolates with a layer of strawberry and milk chocolate, ideal for your sweetheart.

And oldie but goodie, Tohato Caramel Corn is the classic version of this classic Japanese snack. Caramel corn is a sweet and melting corn puff with a delicious caramel coating.

Dragon Chips showcase an unusual and delicious Japanese flavour pairing. These crunchy snacks are flavoured with butter and tarako, or salted pollock roe, a  very popular ingredient in Japanese cookery. A wonderful tasty savory snack.

Veggie Hearts are tiny vegetable corn snacks in the shape of hearts, salty and tasty.

Japanese cakes are delicious, and this Strawberry & Milk Cream Cake is a great example! Strawberry cream is sandwiched between two layers of cake, and the whole thing is covered with white chocolate. One for the sweet tooth!

Bubbly Choco Stick is a favorite amongst Japanese children. It’s a crunchy flower-shaped puffed corn stick with plenty of chocolate flavour.

Another heart-shaped treat, Strawberry Heart Marshmallows. These cute little mallows have a lovely fruity taste, and can either be eaten alone of possibly stirred into hot chocolate for a romantic touch.

Chocobat brings together baseball, which is popular in Japan, with chocolate! This is a chocolate covered breadstick, and is another favourite with children.

Pocky will be familiar to anyone who loves Japanese candy! These coated biscuit sticks come in many varieties, and this version is coated in crumbs of dried strawberry and chocolate for a real fruity kick.

More strawberry, this time Strawberry Chocoballs. These are light and crispy bites covered in strawberry chocolate, and they are very easy to eat!

We’ve got another savory snack now, Aji Cheese Chips. These are crunchy puffed bites covered in a strong and delicious cheese flavour.

Another cake bar, this time Uncle Pierre’s Roll Cake. Rather like a mini swiss roll, this is filled with a sweet and tangy strawberry cream.

It’s too cold for ice cream, but this Strawberry Softserve is the next best thing! It’s a soft strawberry marshmallow in a crunchy cone, and looks a lot like a real ice cream!

Finally, the classic Japanese chocolate bar, Black Thunder. This is an intensely cocoa bar with puffed rice pieces, all coated in another layer of chocolate.

 

Our score: 9.6/ 10

I'm a big strawberry fan, so I love this month's selection! It's great to see a couple of familiar favourites together with some new items. I also love the romantic theme, with heart shapes and lots of pink and white. There's also a good variety of flavour, especially more unusual items such as Dragon Chips! Altogether and excellent collection of goodies, perfect to gift or share if you're feeling romantic, or just keep them to yourself!
