Freedom Japanese Market is a candy and snack subscription box that ships their goodies straight from Japan! It is curated by a family who hand-picked all the snacks. They also include a cute origami of the month. They offer three sizes of box and the price includes shipping worldwide! For a Canadian subscriber, that’s a relief! This box is the Original Pack ($24.99/month). It’s been over a year since I last reviewed this box and they have made some nice upgrades, including the printed box which is super cute!

Each box comes with an information sheet introducing the people behind the box and also information about the origami of the month. This month’s origami is a windsock fish design like you see blowing in the wind!
Shitorri Choco — A BIIIIIG bag of these chocolate covered corn cookies. They are light and crunchy and very chocolatey. The bag is huge!
Karappa — Teriyaki and mayo flavoured corn puffs.
Umaibo — We were sent two flavours, corn potage and cheese. The cheese ones are my favourite so I was happy to see these included!
Chip Star Butter Soy — Chip Star are stacked chips like our Pringles. The butter soy flavour is salty and savoury with a hint of buttery sweetness.
Strawberry Cotton Candy — I’ve had this cotton candy before and it’s the perfect single serving of fluffy candy!
Neru Neru DIY Kit — Neru Neru is one of my favourite DIY kits. It’s two different powdered candies that you mix into other powdered candy which causes a chemical reaction. The result is light, fluffy whipped candy which you can add sprinkles to!
Rice Crackers — These flower shaped rice crackers have a sweet plum glaze.
Mandarin Ramune — OMG how cute is the packaging? It looks like those tubes of mandarins that are sold in a net.
Hello Kitty Matcha Candy — A matcha flavoured candy printed with Kitty’s face.
Sugar Rusks — Rusks are thinly sliced pieces of bread which are toasted to the crispiness like a baguette. These are lightly sweet with sugar but you can still taste the wheat flavour of the bread.
Mango Gum — Gum with a strong mango flavour. This gum really makes me think of summer!
I’m so happy to see Freedom Japanese Market again! I love how personal the box feels with the origami. It really is like a friend is sending you a care package of snacks which Catherine said in her review. I like that they have grown the box but still stayed true to their original vision.
