Japan Crate - Japanese Candy Delivered Right to Your Door

I love trying out new snacks, and I especially enjoy trying things from different cultures. The Japan Crate gives you the opportunity to sample tasty treats from far off lands with their unique subscription service. Starting at the low price of only $12 a month, a new selection of snacks from Japan can be shipped right to your door each month, allowing you to sample some of the coolest products on the worldwide market and see which ones you enjoy the most.

 I received the October crate to try out and I was pretty impressed with the selection. The package is a little smaller than a shoe box, but it's packed with tons of tasty treats. My teen daughter is obsessed with all things Japanese since she got into anime, so she was thrilled with it. Some of the items she had seen advertised online and there was even a cute comic in the box that she enjoyed. This month's box included the following yummy selections:

 Gyutan Umaibo Stick
Chocolate Mini Pancakes
Rum Raisin or Strawberry Soft Candy
Tohato Caramel Corn
Chitto Soda DIY
Grape Gummy Ribbon
Rich Cheese Scones
Vitamin C Drops
Poifull Soda Beans
Bireley's Orange Soda
Mysterious  Soda Balls
Sour Fruit Gummies

 Some of these brands I was familiar with, but most were completely new to me. Many weren't even printed in English, but there is a little cheat sheet inside the comic book to help you figure out what you're eating.  (For those worried about allergies, they do put a sticker in English over the ingredients).   There was also bonus item in the box, an adorable little Food Dog Cashapon which is a little dog figurine wrapped in food.

There was really something for everyone in my family in this box. My daughter loves the sour fruit gummies and my son devoured the mysterious soda balls .The only item that didn't go over well was the Bireley's Soda, but at least we can say we tried something new. And that's what this box is really about. It gave my family a chance to experience a little of the culture of another country. Now my children know what kids their age are eating in Japan. I think that alone makes this box worth the price. If you're looking to try out some new snacks and want a unique experience,you should definitely give the Japan Crate a try. To see what's coming up in next month's box, be sure to visit their website or follow their social media.
