OyatsuBox | March | Unboxing and First Impressions

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!  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 $25 per month,  you receive a box of 8-14 items of Japanese confectionery and savoury goods.  Let’s have a look inside!

I’m starting off with a few of the sweet items this month… the ones that made a nice picture!

I’m obsessed with DIY Candy Kits at the moment, so you can bet that the Kracie Sweet Candy Apple kit will be opened pronto!  From a quick look at the packaging this looks really easy to do, so I’ll be blogging about it soon.

I think I still have a box of Pocky – Matcha lurking around from a previous parcel swap with Nicole, so it will be interesting to see how the two varieties compare.

An item I was happy to see was the Giant Caplico – Panda; “an ice cream cone shaped wafer with delicious fluffy white chocolate in the place of ice cream, infused with crunchy cookie bits!”.  Does that sound heavenly.. or DOES THIS SOUND HEAVENLY?!

The small item at the top is a packet of Hi Chew – Creamy Yoghurt.   I say this ALL THE TIME…. Hi-Chew is similar to the Chewits/Fruitella sweets that we have here, and obviously this particular variety will have a creamy yoghurt taste.

I was very excited to spot a Yokai Watch related item in my OyatsuBox this month – I wish I could get my hands on the game!  This is a packet of Yokai Watch Pop Candy – Ramune.  These are hard candies that taste like ramune, the Japanese version of lemonade.

Another fun-looking item is the packet of Puchitto Kudamono Grape.  These are stretchy, chewy candies.

An item that looks familiar is the Morinaga Choco Balls – Strawberry.  I believe I received a variety (or two) of these in my parcel swap with Alanna.  These are crunchy cookie balls in a strawberry chocolate coating.

These were the only savoury items I received in the box this month – my sweet tooth rejoices!

The first item is a bag of BIG Babystar Yakisoba Bites and my information sheet states “Babystar is a type of snack made from dried, deep fried noodles.  This edition tastes like YakiSoba, a Japanese sweet noodle.  It seems this bag is 3 times the size of regular Babystart snacks”.  I hope I like them, as the big bag will be a waste otherwise.

An item I do think that I will like is the bag of Ganko Age –  put simply these are salty potato sticks… a.k.a my favourite type of crisps!

An item that may have caught your attention is the box of Pokemon Vegetable Crackers.  They are made from 6 different vegetables and each cracker is printed with a different Pokemon character.  I’ll have to see how many I can name!

The Gashapon I received this month was a little lady who seems to be stuck in some sushi – I’m not sure what type!  It’s a silly keyring and I’m not sure I’d ever use it.

You know what I’m going to say…. “it was a good box this month!”.  You all know by now that the sweet-heavy boxes are my favourite as I’m more of a sweet person than savoury, and most importantly I’m more likely to try it!  My storage box of Japanese goodies is beginning to overflow so expect a lot of sweet reviews to come your way whilst I try to get it under control… The next box will be here in two weeks! *begins montage*

OyatsuBox is a monthly subscription service from Japan.  The regular OyatsuBox service is $25, and you receive 8-14 items per month.   There is also the Junior Service, that is $7.99 per month, where you receive 2-3 items per month.  I prefer the $25 service personally as you get so much to try, and it will last you until the next box comes!  OyatsuBox contain a mixture of sweet and savoury items but do not worry, you receive an information sheet with the box so you know what each item is! 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.  

If there is anything you would like me to try for you, please let me know!

    Oooh, I’m sure you’ll love the ice cream one, I had a smaller version of it (except it was strawberry) and I loved it!

    Oh my gosh, the little sushi-lady is adorable!

    I am searching for the perfect Japanese box (this is how I came across your blog, actually) and so far the oyatsubox is in the lead! ’cause as much as I love candy -and I do!- I also adore random, silly plastic thingies :)
