As it’s October, of course we’ve got a spooky theme: Poke-Monster Night!

We’ve  got a list of all the goodies inside, and it looks like they’ve done a great job with Halloween items!

The menu booklet also has such other info as DIY candy instructions, featured snacks, and even some Japanese vocabulary to learn!

Japan produces the most amazing varieties of KitKats, and these Apple Pie Flavour KitKats are no exception! A perfect flavour for the chillier autumn days.

It’s so lovely to have a bottle of Japanese ramune soda, which comes in a glass bottle  complete with the traditional marble stopper. It also has this cute Pikachu packaging, which fits in nicely with this month’s spooky Pokemon mashup theme!

Here’s Pikachu again, this time in gummies. These cute grape gummies all feature Pikachu’s face in different expressions.

Great packaging on this Halloween Brown Sugar Sweets! Brown sugar is considered healthier than white in Japan, and candy made from brown sugar is a popular sweet treat.

Poteco Pumpkin Gratin is a terrific seasonal flavour! Poteco are tiny potato snacks shaped like rings, and this pumpkin flavour version is both sweet and savory. There are also 10 little packs in the bag, which makes them great for sharing or even Trick or Treat!

Here’s Pikachu again, this time in Pokemon Cola Chewing Candy. These sweets look like gum, but they’re not! A nice little touch is that the wrappers all have cute little pictures on them to keep and collect.

Blue Green Soda Gum is a fun treat for Halloween, as this soda-flavoured gum will turn your mouth green or blue!

On the right is ZomB Grape Gum, another colourful gum, and on the left is Bloody Cola Marshmallow, which is squishy marshmallow on the outside with a cola filling.

This Halloween Milk Senbei is a more traditional treat with a twist. There’s a milk senbei (rice cracker) but there’s also alittle package of cola flavouring to add as you wish!

Corn snacks are very popular in Japan, and these Halloween Pizza Corn Snacks are a crunchy savory treat with a nice strong pizza flavour.

Disappearing Taste Mixed Gummies are a great flavour mashup, with a mixture of different fruity gummy sweets, and the flavours change or even disappear depending on what combination you choose.

This month’s DIY candy is Strange Syrup. It’s three flavours of syrup in different textures, and can be eaten alone or combined.

Another savory snack, Squid Legs! Of course they’re not real squid legs, but squid flavoured crunchy corn sticks.

This month’s Umaibo is Corn Potage Flavour in fun Halloween packaging!

Finally, there’s a mystery treat in this month’s box. This one is a DIY candy kit which makes tiny ice cream candies which are created with foamy candy and mini ice cream cones.

 

Our score: 9.4/ 10

I love all the Halloween packaging this month! It's so fun to see all the different designs, and the touches like the colourful gum are great as an extra spooky touch. I also love the bottle of ramune, as it's so cool to see the classic packaging with the marble stopper, which is not something that is often seen outside Japan. There's a great selection of flavours, especially the KitKat, it's always such a treat to be able to try the amazing flavours you can't find anywhere else.
