It’s once again OyatsuBox time, yay! For those of you not so familiar with my blog, OyatsuBox is a monthly subscription box service from Japan. For $11.99, $20 or $30 per month, you receive a box of Japanese confectionery and savoury goods. Let’s have a look inside!
Let’s start with my favourite items in the box…
Oreo – Hokkaido Milk (Premium Box Only)
Oooh! Japanese Oreos! This particular variety boasts triangle shaped cookies with a chocolate biscuit and white chocolate taste combination that makes a gorgeous treat. I may have had one whilst writing this post and my first impressions are good… That’s all I am saying at the moment!
Kabaya Panda Cake
Yesss, more panda chocolatey goodness in my life! This is a large wafer cookie covered with a thick layer of chocolate and cream. This is going to be eaten so quickly I won’t be able to review it.
Kracie Popin Cookin’ – Animal Candy Land (Premium Box Only)
A DIY Candy Kit I have tried in the past and have even repurchased. Put simply, you create small, chewy sweets in the shapes of animals and paint them! This is one of my favourite DIY candy kits so I am always happy to have another kit to play with. You can read my full review here.
Puccho Awawa – Ramune
I’ve previously reviewed the grape variety of this bizarre candy offering from Puccho. I even purchased this particular variety not longer after. What do you know, now I have another bag! Oh well, another bag to try never hurt anyone…
Yay for Gudetama, the lazy egg. These are tangerine and lemon flavoured gummies in the shape of Gudetama. These would be worth reviewing just for the pictures alone. Look at his lazy little face!
Meat Karamucho Kyu
These are spicy beef flavoured potato chips/crisps. I have to say, I am enjoying Japanese crisps at the moment – they seem to be more satisfying than a packet of Walkers! I will give these a go the next time I am binge watching MTV’s latest trashy offering.
Koikeya Corn Potage
These are corn potage flavoured corn puffs. Corn potage is a soup made from sweetcorn. Nooo, not sweetcorn! I don’t like it. *grimaces* I don’t like it at all. I will have to fob these off to someone as I really don’t want to eat them!
Takoyaki Nori (Premium Box Only)
This small packet contains pieces of seaweed covered in takoyaki (octopus dumpling) … *cries* I will try my best to give these a go…
Skal Candy (Premium Box Only)
The information sheet provided tells me that Skal is a popular Japanese drink, although I’ll be honest and admit that I haven’t heard of it. To me, it sounds similar to Calpis. These are candies with the different flavours of Skal. I have a feeling I will like these!
Yoshimura Kelp Crackers
A more traditional snack included this month, and I believe these are rice crackers. I should really give them a go, but longtime readers of my blog will know I am a bit scared of trying savoury snacks.
The Japanese Gachapon this month is a rubber! I think this is a character from One Piece, although please do accept my apologies if it isn’t!
A fairly good box this month. There is a good mixture of sweet and savoury items, although we all know that I prefer the sweet stuff. Despite what you think, I am honestly trying to be brave and try the unusual things. I want to combat my fussy eating, and be a bit more adventurous. I will be sure to tuck into ALL the sweet treats as a reward though *evil grin* Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day…
OyatsuBox is a monthly subscription service from Japan. The box I receive is the Premium OyatsuBox, which is $25 for 10-14 full size items per month. There is also the Junior Service, at $7.99 per month where you receive 3 full size items per month, or the normal OyatsuBox that is $16 for 6 full size treats. I prefer the $25 service personally as you get so much to try, and it will last you until the next box comes! Shipping is free and there are no custom charges to pay. The boxes are sent out at the start of each month and take about two weeks to arrive.
OyatsuBox contain a mixture of sweet and savoury items but do not worry, you receive an information sheet in English with the box so you know what each item is.
