The Halloween Themed Japan Candy Box
I love subscription boxes, which you may well have guessed if you’ve been reading my blog for a while! I was asked recently to review the Japan Candy Box subscription box and I certainly wasn’t going to say no. At the bottom of this post, you can also try to win a Japan Candy Box yourself.
The Japan Candy Box that we were sent was Halloween themed. I was really impressed with how full the box was, it was jam packed and you do get a lot in a box.
All of the candy (I feel a bit like I should say that in an American accident) in the box had fun Halloween packaging. Here’s what we received in our box:
Tohato Halloween Caramel Corn – this looks like a type of crisp, but is actually a caramel corn treat that tastes really sweet. These ones were pumpkin pudding flavour for Halloween and really nice.
Marukawa Witch Mystery Gum – these gums were several different flavours and the outside had a slight crunchy texture. Despite being a decent sized bag they disappeared quickly, as the boys loved them.
Skeleton Ramune Candy – I loved that you could actually make your own skeleton with these sweets! They were quite hard and taste/texture wise they reminded me of the sweet necklaces that I used to buy as a child.
Koala’s March Cookies Halloween Edition – they were the favourite in the house. Very cute to look at and delicious, the insides of them were filled with a soft chocolate, which was very nutella like.
Coris Mizuame DIY Flavor Change Candy – with this little gooey DIY kit you mix the three flavours together to make a new flavour.
Halloween Umaibo Snack Stick – this was kind of like a giant corn crisp. Apparently it is supposed to taste like traditional Japanese corn potage soup, it was quite nice anyway.
Marukawa Witch Color Change Gum – This gum was pretty small, but the boys and I all tried a bit. The Tween had the biggest bit and it turned his tongue blood red along with his teeth ha! Perfect candy for Halloween. It tasted like cola.
Monster Stamp Candy – these were really hard to bite into, but tasted good once you managed to do so whilst trying not to break any teeth. You can either just eat them, or lick/wet them and use them as stamps too.
Halloween Sweet Candy – this one is a traditional Japanese brown sugar treat and if you’re thinking it looks like a giant coco pop, then you’re right as that’s exactly what it tasted like.
Lotte Toppo Halloween Cookie Sticks – the portion size of this was generous, with two bags of the sticks inside the box. They were definitely one of my favourites.
If you have a sweet tooth and love a subscription box, then I would definitely recommend the Japan Candy Box. It was a lot of fun to open and discover tastes from Japan, mostly though it was a good excuse to get a nice big sugar fix.
