WOWBOX – December 2020: Health & Beauty Box

WOWBOX is a specially curated premium Japanese snack box with a variety of subscription options such as the Prefecture Box, Health & Beauty Box, Original Box and Trial Tasting Box.

December’s box is extra special as it’s themed around Christmas and features sweet and savoury snacks which will satisfy your cravings without ruining your diet. The snacks are a mix of vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, organic, and additive-free treats to enjoy and I was excited to open it up when it recently arrived all the way from Japan last week.

Also, a reminder to our UK readers that a customs charge was applied to the box upon its entry into the UK which would need to be paid by the subscriber.

Here’s what I found inside:-

Mochiya Potato Chips

A new type of potato chip made with the simplest raw natural ingredients, these have a blended mix of rice and mashed potatoes with a pinch of rock salt for a roasted crisp flavour. Very moreish!

Ginger Brown Sugar

Similar to sweets that you may find in health food shops in the UK, this is Japan’s version of Ginger Brown Sugar. Made from carefully selected Okinawa black molasses and natural ingredients, the mellow brown sugar gently coats the slightly spicy ginger for a healthy and warming treat for the whole body.

Hello Kitty Mire Biscuits

A special collaboration between Hello Kitty and Nomura Mire Pie, these cute Hello Kitty shaped biscuits have a sweet and savoury crunch to them and taste that is loved by many in Japan. I really liked them and the bag is a large size to share.

Pure Plus Series Strawberry Flavor

An interesting product, this bag contains a sweet and rich strawberry milk fudge which is also matched with the signature sour powder of Pure. In addition, it has 6000mg of protein added to the sweet mix for extra nutrients and a healthy boost.

Japanese Wild Vegetable Crisp Chips

Since its establishment in 1987, the shop has adhered to using the “Tikama Handyang Traditional Method” to produce 7 types of Japanese wild vegetable snacks, using only four simple ingredients: Japanese rice oil, Tanegashima brown sugar, Naruto sea salt, and homemade sweet potatoes. A tasty and savoury snack bag to nibble on!

Feve Cashew Nuts x Baked Apple (Christmas Package)

Founded by Hiraki Tsujiguchi, a well-known pastry chef in Japan, Feve, a natural peas dessert shop in Jiyugaoka, has launched a Christmas series snack! This time, we included a combination of warm and healthy cashew nuts and a lightly cinnamon-flavoured roasted apple. These are very addictive and I love the Christmassy flavour.

Feve Almond x Caramel Banana (Christmas Package)

I also enjoyed the Caramelized Almond flavour in the second pack from Feve – very yummy indeed!

Ryukyu Chocolate

The last product in the December WOWBOX is called Ryukyu Chocolate. Hand-made by craftsmen, with carefully selected brown sugar from Okinawa and 72% dark chocolate from Ghana, it has a slightly bittersweet flavour which means it tastes more savoury than sweet overall. Very different to anything I’ve tried before.


WOWBOX have some exciting Black Friday & Cyber Monday offers available starting on Black Friday 11/37 and ends on Cyber Monday at 11/30 midnight.
