Everything inside my July 2020 box!
Kagome Okinawan Citrus Mix Drink. To give us the tropical taste of Okinawa, they included a citrusy drink in the box! It’s made with pineapple and passion fruit, so it’s really tangy. It’s best served cold for a refreshing treat in the middle of a hot day.
Kit Kat Citrus Mint. This limited edition version of Kitkat is fitting for summer. It’s made with their trademark crispy wafer infused with lemon and coated with peppermint chocolate. Each pack contains 12 individually-wrapped wafers, perfect for sharing with friends and family. The lemon and mint flavors were well balanced and provided a refreshing mouthfeel!
Rilakkuma Green Apple Gummy. Rilakkuma is a famous fictional bear character from Japan and it’s featured on this flavorful gummy candy in green apple flavor. It’s chewy and oozing with a perfect combination of tartness and sweetness!
Umaibo Lemon. Umaibo is a Tokyo Treat staple! This popular Japanese snack is a crunchy cylindrical corn puff, which comes in different flavors. In line with the theme, this month’s version features a yummy fruity lemon flavor!
Japanese Squid Cracker. Eating squids is a must when coming to a Japanese beach, and that’s why they included these squid-shaped rice crackers, in line with the summer theme. It was tasty, too bad we only have one small pack!
Doritos. Subscribers will receive 1 out of 3 variants: Soy Sauce Wasabi, Nacho Cheese, and Mild Salt. I received Nacho Cheese, which features a delicious blend of Parmesan and cheddar cheese. They’re pretty much the same as the Doritos we have here in the US. Each piece was crunchy and flavorful!
DIY Bubble Tea Matcha Milk. We can now enjoy a refreshing cup of boba milk tea without leaving home! This DIY kit includes a plastic cup, straw, milk tea powder, and tapioca pearls. It’s so easy to make, simply pour the powder and the tapioca pearl inside the cup, then pour in hot water into the cup, stir it well until the powder disappears and the pearl becomes soft. Lastly, add ice and enjoy!
Baskin’ Robbins Popping Shower Chocolate. This delicious chocolate snack was based on one of the most popular Baskin Robbins flavors in Japan, Popping Shower! It’s a tray of white chocolate bites with ramune soda flavored candy toppings that pop inside the mouth. It’s so sweet and yummy. My kids definitely enjoyed this because of the popping candies! Tip: freeze the chocolate before eating!
Corn Potage Bites. The creaminess and savory flavors of corn soup are now in the form of crunchy puffed snacks! Each piece is light and airy, making it such a delight to munch on.
Festival Sign Choco. It’s a summer festival-themed chocolate with a smooth and creamy texture. It also comes with a festival stall sticker!
Salty Popcorn. Popcorn is one of our fave go-to snacks. This popcorn didn’t disappoint as it’s fluffy and salty. I loved how light it was, and there were no hard kernels either. I wish they have it in a bigger bag for movie marathons!
Porickey Corn. Porickey reminds me of the Pocky snack! These are crunchy cookie sticks, boasting of a savory corn flavor. They make a great snack to enjoy on the go because they come in a slim pack and they’re not messy to eat.
Strawberry Daifuku. Daifuku refers to as a mochi stuffed with a sweet filling. I have one in the box and it features a sweet and juicy strawberry cream! This snack is pretty chewy!
Gummy Kiss. This gummy candy is also known as Chu Chu, which literally means “kiss” in English. It’s lip-shaped and flavored with juicy grapefruit!
Marukama Orange Gum. Here’s another fruity item, an orange-flavored gum with a long-lasting taste and soft texture. It’s absolutely mouthwatering!
Minty Animal. Subscribers will get these candies in either a panda or a pig wrapper! I received the super cute panda, and inside it has hard round candies with cool and refreshing minty flavor.
Mystery Treat – Turtle Crackers. This month’s mystery treat is the Turtle Crackers! They are not made with turtles, but they are shaped like one. Each piece was satisfyingly crunchy. I liked that it’s not overly salty either. Just like the popcorn snack in this box, this one also makes an ideal snack for watching TV or movies!
Tokyo Treat fulfills our Japanese snack cravings every month, from sweet to salty and everything in between. This month, the box includes classic Japanese treats like the rice crackers and umaibo, as well as some Japanese snacks that are perfect to eat during summer, like the KitKat infused with lemon and the ice cream-inspired chocolate with popping candies. They even added drinks to wash down everything we’ve just tried! If you’re a fan of Japanese snacks like us, this box is a great choice. They never disappoint with variety and quality! Tokyo Treat, like the other boxes that ship directly from Japan, have had some shipping issues due to COVID, which is understandable.
