Japan Crate Mini, Volume 16

Last months’ Halloween themed crate featured some awesome treats (4 sweet items, 1 savory item, and 1 novelty item). Check it out.



What’s inside:

Lovely Halloween Pocky – I received 1 of 3 possible flavors between Strawberry, Apple Pumpkin, and Milk. Happy to have gotten the second one. As for the flavor, it tasted more like white chocolate and not either of the 2 that it was supposed to be. I had hoped to get at least a bit of apple. Oh well, it was still good. I have yet to try a Pocky flavor I didn’t like.

Nama Creme Pie – With a name like that, one would assume it would be some type of pie, right? Nope, not with this. However, these mini palmier cookies do interpret the buttery, flaky goodness of pie crust. But that’s about for the actual “pie” concept. I love palmiers, so these could have easily been finished first. I still have a few left and plan to savor them.


Nyusankin Ikitemasu! Yogurt Candy – These hard candies really did taste like yogurt. They also contain probiotics to help your tummy digest the rest of the tasty snacks in this crate. šŸ˜›

Potato Chips, Shio flavor – The chips with the not-so-unique name are back! Shio is Japanese for salt, and these lightly salted chips were immediately consumed.

Surprise! Horror Gum! – The package contained a sheet of slightly gory temporary tattoos and banana flavored gum. The gum wasn’t bad. The tattoos have yet to be used.


This was nice to grub on during Halloween day/night since I actually didn’t give away any candy to trick-or-treaters this year. Nothing bad at all from this crate. Stay tuned to see what November brings!
