There’s plenty of fun stuff in the menu booklet, including a list plus descriptions of this month’s snacks.
There’s also instructions for the DIY Candy Kit, plus information on this month’s Featured Snack.
Japanese KitKats come in crazy flavours, and this month there’s a whole bag of Halloween-themed mini Caramel Pudding KitKats.
This month’s drink is Takoyaki Ramune, which is Japanese soda flavoured with Takoyaki, which is a fried octopus dough ball! That’s quite a trick to play.
This is Tongari Corn Salted Caramel. This is a sweet version of a usually savory snack, and are little crunchy corn triangles. It also has a fun Halloween package.
A cute rather than spooky Halloween snack this time, these are Winnie the Pooh Honey and Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This treat is a Butter Cram Roll Cake, very like a small cream-filled swiss roll.
More Halloween packaging, this is Halloween Papiro featuring various Sanrio characters. Papiro is a chocolate roll filled with chocolate almond cream.
Here’s a fun treat, a Halloween Chupa Chups Lollipop. Instead of the usual round lolly, this is shaped like a strawberry skull with a lime flavoured brain inside!
This is a little bag of Mochitaro Salt Rice Puffs, which are exactly what they sound like!
These are Shrimp Crackers in a Halloween design package.
Poteko are crunchy mini potato rings, a bit like tiny hula Hoops. and these special Halloween packages are Pumpkin Gratin Flavour.
This month’s share pack is four little bags of Pumpkin Wheat Puffs.
The DIY Candy Kit this month are Candy Apples. You can see the instructions above, but they are little candy balls you dip into caramel sauce and sprinkles.
This month’s kinosei snack is a Balance Mini-Cake Bar. It’s a cheesecake flavoured bar and contains 10 different vitamins plus calcium, magnesium, and iron.
Finally, this cool Halloween Umaibo is in Corn Potage Flavour.
I absolutely love this month’s box! TokyoTreat has done a fantastic job with all the Halloween treats, and they’re found a couple of really unusual items!
I have to say that I’m slightly glad I’m allergic to seafood so won’t be trying the octopus ball-flavoured soda, so you’ll have to decide if it’s more of a trick or a treat! I’m missing out on the shrimp crackers too, but I don’t mind, because everything else is delicious.
The Chupa Chups lolly is small but pleasingly spooky, and will be a wonderful spooky treat!
I’m really looking forward to the salted caramel corn snacks too, they look delicious, and you can also put them on your fingers for witch’s fingernails!
As always these snacks are generally only available in Japan, so you’re going to have flavours and tastes you won’t find anywhere else.
