Snack crates are popping up more and more. And I am constantly impressed and inspired by both the themes and curations of these boxes.
This month I am trying a newer Japanese candy crate. Tokyo Treat offers 3 size boxes and my review will be for the premium box that is 34.99 a month. Each premium box includes 13-17 Full-size Japanese candy and snacks, 1 DIY candy kit which my toddler loves, 1 Drink (?) and 1 special item (i.e. drink, premium DIY, high-quality toy)
The first item despite the packaging is not fish flavored, but New Years treats and CHOCOLATE! They tasted great!
The next item combines my love of two amazing things, ice cream and caramel corn, the Tohato item inspired by the monster trend in Tokyo was super tasty.
I have to admit it, I am a huge baby! Spicy things scare me and this jalapeno devil bag scared me off, BUT I will sneak them on my husband when he gets home. I am super curious whats inside.
The box also included pokemon chewing candy and sticker matching gum, they are simple but pack a lot of flavor. For pokemon fans the candy is wrapped in each individual monster. The Sticker gum was flavored like cola and not my favorite taste but if you are a pokemon fan its super cute. My drink in this crate was Amazake Sweet Sake?
"Amazake literally means “sweet sake,” but when produced it’s either low-alcohol or alcohol-free. The low-alcohol variety is made by mixing sake kasu (the lees left over after sake has been extracted) with steamed rice and water. The non-alcoholic variety is made by mixing plain steamed rice and water with kome kōji, rice that has been inoculated with Aspergillus oryzae, the fungus that is the basis for many kinds of fermented foods such as miso, nattō (fermented soybeans) and soy sauce as well as sake. " I wasn't sure if it was meant to be hot or cold. I tried it and it was sweet and a tad thick. I threw it in the fridge and will give it a go again after Dinner.
The next item was a Pokemon figurine, some Pocky which is a MASSIVE hit with everyone in my house and 2 DIY candies. We have done these in the past and make great "projects" for our toddler.
MORE Pokemon! Also included were more Pokemon candies and wafers.!
The magazine in Tokyo Treat was also super funky and included fun facts and information!
Overall out of 10, I give Tokyo Treat an 8 on cost (the price point is on and there a lot of diversity in items), 8 on quality (everything was super impressive) 5 on appropriate for me (I am just not all that into Pokemon), 10 on fun! I loved the DIY candy projects.
