This month’s box theme is looking past winter to the warmer weather: Spring Market!

There’s inspiration this month is from fruit and vegetables, very Spring-like! There’s a cute crossword puzzle to complete too!

There’s a full list of everything in the box!  The menu booklet also contains information on the featured snack and the DIY candy kit for this month. We’ll see those soon!

The featured snack is actually this month’s drink: Peach Coca Cola!

Peach Coke was indeed hugely popular, and so it’s really cool they’ve got a new and improved version for this year!

Don’t be alarmed by the name of the Banana Omelette Cakes! They’re actually folded sponge cake filled with banana cream. There’s actually another possible option for the party pack, which are chocolates with a variety of fruit fillings.

Buttery Salted Sweet Potato Chips have a great sweet and salty flavour, a really nice combination.

This is a fun snack! Minions Chocolate Wafer includes a sticker as well as the crunchy wafer.

The next snack is another savory/sweet combination: Curry Corn Snack. These crunchy corn puffs are flavoured with Japanese curry, which is a very poplar flavour.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Cookies are deliciously soft chocolate chip cookies.

This is exceptionally cute! This Rice Puff Carrot contains savory rice puffs in this fantastic packaging.

Pineapple Gummies are exactly what it says! Chewy gummy rings with a sweet pineapple flavour. These are particularly nice as pineapple isn’t that common a flavour in gummy candy, plus the rings are a nice twist on the more common hard candy circles!

I love these. Pea Stick Snack is a savory crunchy corn stick that looks a little bit like a pea pod and tastes remarkably like peas! Really savory and delicious.

Ramune Candy is very popular in Japan. It’s the candy version of Japanese soda pop, called Ramune, and is quite a distinctive flavour with a lovely crunchy yet melting texture. The shape of the packaging reflects the shape of a ramune soda bottle.

This month’s Share Pack is either Splir Pea snack, or this one, Veggie Potato Sticks! These yummy savory sticks contain actual vegetables, and although they’re not as healthy as the real thing, they are salty and delicious.

This month’s DIY Candy Kit is an Exciting Animal Soft Candy DIY Kit. 

Instructions are in the menu booklet, and you mix the lemon and strawberry candy and mould it into little bear shape. Very cute!

A Japanese take on gummy bears, these are Bear Cub Gummies, and contain a selection of fruity bear shapes.

Finally, my absolute favourite Japanese snack, an Umaibo! Umaibo, which means ‘delicious stick’ is a puffed corn tube, and comes in many different flavours. This one is Teriyaki flavour, and really does takes exactly like teriyaki sauce!

This month’s selection has definitely caught the fruity variety of the theme!

It’s great to see the Peach Coca Cola again, especially as it’s often difficult to find outside Japan, so it’s a real treat for international subscribers!

I love the veggie snacks, both the pea sticks and the veggie snacks are really yummy. I also really like that there are two sweet and savory snacks, which gives a little bit of extra flavour variety.

 

Our score: 9.0/ 10

All together, a lovely selection as always, with a great seasonal theme and a great way to sample Japanese flavours, both traditional and modern. You even get cute characters!
