I received 4 snack items and 1 candy item in this box, plus a toy bonus.
Big Bar Z: White Choco – The shape of this reminded me of a churro, with a crispy wafer-like texture. And it has white chocolate inside. Not a big fan of the stuff, but it was tasty.
Calbee French Salad potato chips – Modeled after the nicoise salad, the taste of these is similar to that of salt and vinegar, but not too strong. I liked it.
Mochitto Kinako Mochi – Kinako is a roasted soy flour, which is what covers this slightly sweet mochi. So good! I wish the portion could have been bigger.
Puku Puku Taichoco – The phrase “pukupuku” refers to the sound of fish gulping. This large wafer resembles the popular taiyaki, which is a fish-shaped dessert that often contains a red bean filling. This one contained chocolate cream filling. Delish!
Sour Cider Gum – Japan Crate is back at it again with another cider flavored item. It definitely had a slightly tart flavor, but wasn’t too sour. And surprisingly it lasted longer than the other types of gum I’ve received from past boxes.
*bonus* Kitty Cup – Gachapon, or vending machine capsule toys, can be found just about anywhere in Japan. Every box shipped had one with a kitten inside a mug. Can we say kawaii?
Good variety with this box. I’m just about finished eating through Volume 12, so stay tuned for another review!
