OyatsuBox | November | Unboxing and First Impressions

Posted in Lifestyle

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 November - Famous in Japan

OyatsuBox November -- Famous in Japan

Pocky Midi – Caramel Latte *Premium Box Only*

Oooh a new variety of an item I have enjoyed in the past.  We all know what Pocky is, right?  A coated biscuit stick snack that has varieties such as chocolate, peanut, cookies and cream… and more.  I loved the Pocky Midi – Strawberry variety I tried last year (hehe…) so I have no doubts that these will be good too.  Mmm… caramel latte…

Kabaya Waku Waku Zukan – Fish Gummy

I believe these are the same gummies I received in the June Japan Candy Box, except these are fish shaped.  If I review these, I will probably combine the two packets together to (hopefully) show you all the different gummy shapes.

Kabaya Saku Saku Panda Cookies – Z

I absolutely adored the Kabaya Panda Cookies I tried, so I am pretty excited to try these double chocolate variety.  Look at how chocolatey they look!   It will be a miracle if I can restrain myself long enough to review them.

BIG Black Thunder – Coconut

I love the name of this chocolate bar.  BIG Black Thund-aaaaa.   I like chocolate and I like coconuts, so this should be a treat.

Puccho – Ripe Apple *Premium Box Only*

I say it all the time but you really cannot go wrong with a packet of Puccho or Hi-Chew, the chewy fruit sweets.  This ripe apple variety of Hi-Chew is a special premium edition and is only available at certain stores around Japan.

Big Babystar – Black Sesame

A new edition of the Big Babystar crispy noodle snack for me to try.  This variety has a layer of black sesame.  I need to be brave when I try these – I am so nervous when it comes to trying new savoury snacks…

Kelp and Black Bean Senbei

These are traditional rice crackers that are coated in kelp and black bean.  OyatsuBox recommend enjoying them on their own or with some hot green tea.  If I was nervous about trying the Big Babystar then I am petrified of trying these!  Must… be… brave!

Koume Umeboshi *Premium Box Only*

The packaging of these gummies is too pretty.  I don’t want to open it.  It’s like a painting!  These are plum flavoured and I think they will be a nice change from grape flavour!

Coris Choco Kinako Matcha Mochi DIY Candy Kit *Premium Box Only*

Another variety of something I have already tried.  However, I probably won’t like this.  The Choco Kinako variety of this kit was an absolute disaster and I know this is going to end badly too…

Luxury Gummy Yamagata La France

Another new brand and flavour of gummies for me to try!  These are pear flavoured candies with a gummy coating and a “delicious” jelly centre.  These promise to be very luxious.  I feel too peasant like to eat these.

OyatsuBox November ----- Famous in Japan

A Gashapon – yay!  This is from the Prince of Tennis anime series.  Nope, I haven’t heard of it either!  It does seem to be quite popular though…

A very good box for me!  Lots of sweets for me to get stuck into, and not too many savoury items that I am scared of trying.  At the time of writing I haven’t received the December box just yet but I am SO EXCITED to get all the Christmas treats!  I will have to spend most of next year on some sort of exercise bike or treadmill just to burn all these candy treats off….

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.

    The pocky sound amazing – as do the pear sweets. I don’t think I’d like the savoury snacks, so good on you for giving them a try! xx
