My fascination with subscription boxes started well over a year ago, when fellow blogger babe (and long-time friend), Cobwebs & Pearls, and I discovered that you could get yummy treats delivered to our doors. With credit cards in hand, we entered the wildly addictive world of subscription boxes. We’ve since ditched our first subscription, found some favourites that we subscribe to faithfully, and are having fun trying out even more new goodies.
My latest discovery, Japan Crate, is a delightful red box made to “share the fun and unique experience of Japanese culture through candy”, and it definitely delivered! In my crate was: A Maruta Mini Bottle, SakuSaku Panda Anniversary Chocolate Torte Cookies, Morokashi Wa Taro Doubanjiang Flavor, Takaoka Choco Flakes, Yaokin Cocobis Biscuits, Animal Kid Biscuits, Yokai Watch Jelly Drink DIY, Milk Flavored Chocolate, Paicro Sugar & Butter Flavour, and Sumiyaki Coffee Candy. With the exception of a few items, everything was yummy and super cute!
Although I would love to renew my subscription, the cost of shipping was over half the cost of the box, making the entire thing less appealing (I would rather put that $15 shipping charge towards a larger subscription box that includes shipping). But that didn’t stop me from enjoying July’s goodies. To see the full reveal of all this month’s Japanese snacks, be sure to watch my unboxing video below!
