WOW Box is a Japanese candy subscription coming right from Japan! The box is pretty substantial, and I was really excited to open it and see what was inside.
This is clearly the May box, and it arrived while it was still May! Always a bonus.
I love the design of their logo, as well as the patterns on the front of the information card.
Wow Box has a three-tier system like most treat boxes. This box is the Large box, so it included everything on the sheet. There is a special item in this month’s box!
Nutritional information was also included for every item. This is important as the items are directly from Japan and have no English ingredients listed.
Everything is protected by air packets.
Wata Gum This cotton candy turns into chewing gum! It’s weird, but delicious. This is soda flavoured.
Wata Pachi This cotton candy has pop rocks in it — it crackles and pops as the cotton candy melts in your mouth. It’s grape flavoured.
Calbee Pizza Chips I love Calbee chips! These are pizza flavoured, and have a cheese and herb seasoning.
Chip Star These are pretty much like Pringles in that they stack up nicely in the container. They are vegetable consomme flavoured.
Milk Chocolate Caramel Corn I’ve tried more than a few flavours of these now — they’re corn curls flavoured with chocolate or other sweetness. They are light and airy.
Calbee Sapporo Potato Crisps I got these same crisps in March’s Japan Candy Box and I don’t like them much. The flavour in these is very weak and bland.
Bourbon Pucchi Luxury Cheese Cookies I’ve tried these before and didn’t really like them, so these are going to my coworker. They’re cookie sandwiches with a cheese filling.
Three big boxes of Pocky! This year is Pocky’s 50th anniversary!
Chocolate Pocky The original formula, this packaging features Woodstock from Peanuts.
Almond Crush Pocky These are a fancier style, with crushed almond in the chocolate. It’s Snoopy!
Otona no Milk Pocky Otona means ‘Adult’, and in Japan they like to market towards age demographics in this way. It’s a more grown up Pocky, in other words. The chocolate is more rich, and the stick is crunchier.
Mets Grapefruit Soda !!! I love when we get drinks in treat boxes! I don’t really like grapefruit, but since Japan does pretty much everything better than us, I gave it a try. It’s not sour like most grapefruit drinks I’ve tried, and I found it pretty refreshing.
Salt Lemon Kaki Peas I haven’t seen these before, but apparently they are pretty popular in Japan. They’re a mixture of small rice crackers shaped like seeds, and peanuts. They’re often flavoured with different seasonings like wasabi, soy, or bonito. These are lemon and salt, and are pretty tangy!
Apollo Chocolates More Meiji goodies! These are dual-layered strawberry and chocolate cones. They are sweet and creamy and never last very long in my house.
I can’t get over how much was packed into this Wow Box! There was a great mix of sweet and savoury, which is honestly how I compare boxes against one another because I love both equally. And bonus points for including a drink, which not enough boxes manage to do. I loved the mixture of familiar treats alongside things I’ve never tried before, like the kaki peas and the chips. This box would be great for the snack addict in your life — I know it’s definitely satisfied my craving this month!
