Japan Crate Mini, Volume 14

August’s Mini crate is freakin’ sweet! No really, all 5 items in the box were sweet. Fine by me. Let’s check it out.




What’s inside:

Moguchuu Chewing Candy, Strawberry – According to the pamphlet’s description, it’s difficult to find trash bins around Japan. And since disposing of chewing gum is frowned upon, that’s the reason why large varieties of chewy candy are sold. Chewing on this gives the impression that one is chewing gum. Basically, this is another version of the Hi-Chew candy we most often find here in the US. Good flavor, however, the texture isn’t as soft as those.

Natsukashi Ramune – The bottle containing this quick dissolving candy is reminiscent of those that store the popular Ramune soda. The candy itself tastes like it too.


Puchi Konpeito – This is the Japanese version of rock candy. The star-shaped pieces come in a variety of colors and flavors. Purple = grape, blue = cider, yellow = pineapple, and sadly the orange didn’t have a flavor. It tasted like the white one, which was plain/unflavored sugar.

Sittori Matcha – I’ve tried the chocolate version of this from a past box and loved it. Didn’t think any less of this one. This crunchy puffed snack was covered in a matcha glaze. Very easy to have finished this in one go, but I managed to savor it.

Usuyaki CookieUsuyaki is Japanese for “thin”. Thin, crispy biscuits sandwich a chocolate cream filling. It only came in a pack of 2, but I could have easily have gone through a bunch more. I really have no shame when it comes to cookies or chocolate!



This box had a nice variety of sweet goodies. I’m hoping that they’ll include at least one savory one in Volume 15. I got love for both!
