OyatsuBox | August | 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 $7.99, $16 or $25 per month,  you receive a box of Japanese confectionery and savoury goods.  Let’s have a look inside!

OyatsuBox August 8 - Famous in Japan

Calbee – OyaCorn

These are heart shaped corn snacks; all together now, aww!  The cheesy flavour… hmm… not as romantic!  I’m hopeful that these will be tasty but a small part of me worries about the flavour, and the smell…

Kracie DIY Ramen Kit

I’m not going to lie, I became very excited when I spotted this DIY kit.  With this kit, you can make your own miniature ramen and gyoza side dish.  If I can make my own ramen at home, who needs Wagamama?  Who needs to even leave the house?!

OyatsuBox August 4 - Famous in Japan

Puccho Ball – Ramune

I do like Puccho candies, so I am intrigued to try their new circular offerings.  It looks like these candies have layers of surprises!  I love the taste of ramune so I am sure I will like them regardless of their size.

Pure Lychee Gummies

Pure is a famous gummy brand, and these gummies are lychee flavoured.  This is quite a summer-y flavour, don’t you think? I have to say, it makes a change from grape gummies.

Biohazard Tablet

These are a licensed treat from CAPCOM.  According to Google, Biohazard was the original name of Resident Evil!  You learn something new every day.  These are strawberry and ramune flavoured candies that turn your tongue different colours.  Oooh, I can imagine these being very fun to eat!  I call dibs on the ramune ones…

Morinaga Vegetable Ramune

Vegetable flavoured ramune candies? Ugh… Not for me, thank you!  I will have to fob these off to an unsuspecting enemy… pretend they are orange flavoured… hehehe…  *rubs hands with glee*

OyatsuBox August 1 - Famous in Japan

Crispy Shittori Choco *Premium Box Item*

These look and sound rather similar to the Umaibo Choco Bites, and I hope they are.  They were nice!  This is a big, generous packet with plenty to try.

Hi-Chew Premium White Grape *Premium Box*

Yay for Hi-Chew, nay for grape taste.  *hisses* At least they should be a nice flavour considering the premium tag?

OyatsuBox August 9 - Famous in Japan

Petit – Wasabi Mayo *Premium Box*

These chips do not sound appealing to me at allwasabi and mayonnaise?! – but I am going to be brave and try them anyway… and make sure I have plenty of candy to eat after if they taste horrible!

OyatsuBox August 5 - Famous in Japan

Nom Nom Melon Sherbert *Premium Box*

This treat reminds me of those cocktails that you put in the freezer, because this is what you do with this!   I’m sure this will be very nice and perfect for a hot, muggy day.  Hey, IT’S NOT GRAPE FLAVOURED!

OyatsuBox August 11 - Famous in Japan

Japanese Gachapon

I quite like receiving Gashapons, but this fish keyring will have to find a new home.  It will scare my Hello Kitty keyrings!

A mixture of things this month, wouldn’t you agree?  I really like the Ramen DIY Candy Kit, the Puccho candies and the Crispy Shittori Choco.  I am even excited about the Hi-Chew candies.  There are some unusual things this month *gives major side eye to the wasabi mayo chips*  but hey, that’s the beauty of OyatsuBox.   I can’t wait for their winter boxes though… give me all the Japanese chocolate!

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.

What’s your favourite item in the box?

I am working with OyatsuBox at the moment, and as part of this work they have kindly offered me a free subscription.  I wanted to make it clear to you all that this has only started from May’s box.   My boxes from September to April were not provided for free.  If you have any questions, queries or doubts, please email me.  I would be happy to put your mind at ease.
