The Tokyo Treat April 2023 Box was a celebration of spring in Japan with a Sakura Picnic Party theme. It features a mix of sweet and savory snacks, including traditional treats. The box offers a unique and delicious twist on Japanese snacks and is perfect for those looking to try something new. Keep scrolling to read our review!

KitKat Peach. To me, peach is the classic spring flavour! These are absolutely delicious and have such a refreshing taste!

Texas Corn Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a classic Japanese street food, it’s a grilled pancake topped with things like shredded cabbage, mayo, bonito flakes, and other tasty things, all topped with a delicious savory sauce. These corn snacks really evoke that feeling!

Sakura Matcha Cookie Bites. Collon are a delicious flaky cookie filled with cream. This is a matcha green tea flavour with cherry blossom filling!

Sakura Senbei. These senbei (rice crackers) have a hint of shrimp to them, and are deliciously crunchy!

Sakura Cherry Candy. These are hard candies flavoured like cherry blossom. They were very flavourful but I find cherry blossom flavour can be overwhelming at times and this was one of those times.

Full Moon Pon Cracker. A favorite of mine – rice crackers doused in soy sauce. Simple but delicious!

Ghana Chocolate Cake Bites. This box included two goodies by Ghana, which is a new brand to me! The first is chocolate cake bites, which have a chewy cake center and a chocolatey exterior!

Premium Ghana Truffle. These were my favorite of the two Ghana products – these are classic truffles dusted in cocoa powder and they were AMAZING. The inside is milk chocolate but the outer shell is dark chocolate!

Sakura Manju. My other favorite treat from the box – a fluffy pastry filled with a jam made from cherry blossom and red bean. Absolutely addicting, not too sweet, and so beautiful!

Mini Caplico. Subscribers were sent cherry blossom or strawberry flavors – I got both! These are mini ice cream cones filled with aerated chocolate.

Sour Paper Candy Cola. A very long sour cola gummy. This was super chewy and reminded me of the cola gummies I used to buy from 7-11 as a kid!

Kuppy Ramune. A variety of ramune flavoured candies.

Cola Lollipop Dipper. This is a cola flavored lollipop along with a powdered cola candy that you dip the moistened lollipop into to increase the flavor. So good!

Piri-Kara Spicy Ramen. I loved this ramen because it was so spicy but still tasty! I definitely felt myself sweating!

Strawberry King Cider. This sparkling cider (non alcoholic!) was bursting with juicy strawberry flavour.

The April box was bursting with all kinds of delicious flavors that make you feel like you’re on a picnic! Savory, sweet, and everything in between! It captured the spirit of a Sakura Picnic Party perfectly. Whether you’re a seasoned Japanophile or just looking to try something new, this box is sure to delight your taste buds and transport you to a sunny day in Tokyo.
