Unboxing of TokyoTreat Japanese Candy Snack Box

We were provided the TokyoTreat box to do a review and give our honest feedback.


Hey Yall!  TokyoTreat is one of the coolest subscription boxes I have ever reviewed!  My girls have been asking me, "When will we be reviewing products again?"  I hit them with one of the best review products ever!  I was going to surprise them, but couldn't keep this all to myself; I was excited as much as them when I told them.






I am a huge fan of the Japanese culture, especially all the cutesy anime characters.  When I was younger, I was first introduced to Sanrio by my aunt and fell in love with all the adorable creatures; Sanrio is small assortment gifts, like stationery sets, candy, dolls of the lovable characters of Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Pochacco, and other Sanrio pals.






Keroppi was my favorite and still is.  During my teenage years, I got into anime characters, watching anime shows and drawing anime women fighters.   My favorite was Sailor Moon, remember that show? I guess you could consider me an anime geek.






I passed down my love affair with Japanese cartoon characters to my daughters, and they too love them just the same.  They also enjoy eating Japanese snacks.  We purchase these snacks often from ethnic stores and anime character shops.

TokyoTreat reached out to me to try out their subscription box of fun and crazy Japanese candies and treats.  Oh heck yes, I would review this box and so will my daughters!  Woot!!!  We'll have a fun time taste testing all these treats!

Here is how it works:






Each month TokyoTreat ships tasty Japanese candies and snacks from Japan right to your doorstep.  And it's actually coming from Japan because I receive email delivery updates from Japan, and the package has a Japanese customs label.

You have 3 subscription options to choose from:



1. Small- 5-7 Full-size Japanese candy and snacks ($14.99)


2. Regular- 8-12 Full-size Japanese candy and snacks and 1 DIY candy kit ($24.99)


3. Premium- 13-17 Full-size Japanese candy and snacks, 1 DIY candy kit, 1 Drink, and 1 Special item (i.e. drink, premium DIY, high-quality Gachapon toy) ($34.99)






The TokyoTreat box I received to review was the premium box, and oh boy is it filled with so many different snacks to try!  My girls and I couldn't wait to dive in and try everything out!  All snacks are authentic, full size, and delivery is fast considering it's coming from Japan.

First thought when opening the box was how vibrant the packagings are, bursting with colors, inside the box has awesome illustrations of a Kawaii girl and guy with Japan in the background and fun characters on some of the packages inside.  My daughters recognized some of the characters from the cartoons they currently watch now.






Thank goodness the TokyoTreat box comes with a pamphlet to explain in English what are each of the snacks. I noticed this booklet is backward; I guess that's how books are in Japan.

The booklet includes interesting facts about what's going on in Japan, pictures from TokyoTreat fan club community, DIY crafts, plus beautiful illustrations, makes me want to dust off my art supplies and start drawing again.






My box was the 2016 January edition that is all about celebrating the New Year.  Japanese celebrates the New Year by gathering around Kotatsu (a low wooden table covered with a thick blanket) and eat New Year dishes such as Ozoni, a special soup that they eat the morning of New Year's Day.  The way I celebrate the New Years is on a beach reflecting on the year past, giving thanks to God, and ask for his blessings for the future.

1. Yokai- Watch Character Soft-Serve Ice Cream Caramel Corn

Michelle- I like it a little bit.

Lou- Love it!  Sweet puffs that taste like has a soft caramel flavor.  I couldn't stop eating them.

2. Pokemon Ramun 5 Pack

Lauren- Made me think I was eating Sweet Tarts.  Very good!

Michelle- I like them a lot!

Lou- Taste just like the tangy Sweet Tarts.  The packaging made me think it was going to be gummies, but instead it's small soft colored little round circles, kind of like Pez candies.

9. Pokemon Chewing Candy

Lauren- Taste like pineapples.  Feels like it'll rip my teeth out!

11. Tyrant Habanero Who Came Back!

Lauren- Taste like spicy chicken.

Michelle- Too spicy!

12. Oekaki Kyanland Candy

Lauren- Candy itself taste good, but the edible paint on the candy taste weird.

Michelle- Taste sweet, and fun to make.

Lou- It's a messy DIY candy kit, but the girls loved it.

13.  Pokemon Sticker- Matching Chewing Gum

Lauren- She didn't get to try it.

Michelle- It tastes good.

Lou- Has a good fruity taste, however, the flavor doesn't last long at all. Also, the gum is super small; that's why Lauren didn't get a piece.

14. Pokemon Toy

Unsure about this toy, doesn't seem like fun to me, but Lauren seems to like it. 






My girls and I had a great time trying all of these snacks, a lot of good ones and there were some duds in the mix.  I think I over did it with all the sweets that I ate, had my stomach wanting to fight me.  LOL!






Super cute, adorable, and fun box that I'll become a monthly subscriber, so the girls can try out different Japanese sweets every month.  Now my daughters are talking about wanting to take a trip to Japan.  (Looks at wallet) Maybe someday; I would like to take a vacation there and explore Japan's culture and taste their authentic cuisines.

    I read this post with my daughter Chloe and she really enjoyed the feedback from you and your daughters. I may get a box or two, Chloe was actually born in Japan, so these treats will bring back some cool memories! :)
