If you love surprises, subscription boxes and Japanese snacks then you’re in for a treat, let’s explore some of Japan’s finest treats through Box from Japan. What is Box From Japan you ask? Well let me tell you, it is a monthly subscription box packed full of authentic Japanese goodies sent right to your door.
You can choose from three types of boxes, ‘Ninja’ ($13/month and five to six items), ‘Samurai’ ($23/month and 10-11 items) or the ‘Sumo’ box ($33/month and 15-16 items). They also offer a trial box which is a what I’m reviewing today, this option is a great way to get a feel of what they have to offer, the box contained 17 snacks including 1 DIY candy kit.
All prices included free international shipping and payments can be made by PayPal or any Credit Card. Their website is easy to navigate and is in both Spanish and English. They also send you a content sheet via pdf detailing the list of treats in your box.
Candy and Snacks are not the only thing they specialise in, they have a Ramen monthly subscription box which contains 4 bowls with chopsticks. An Iwako Erasers box (Japanese erasers) each month a new theme making it the perfect box for a collector. Last but not least they sell a Pocky box which contains 6 original flavours ideal for all you serious snackers out there.

Just like a chameleon, these lollies change their color and flavour as you lick them.

Colorful Tsubu Candy
You’re never too old for popping candy, these sachets are the perfect size to satisfy a minor sweet craving.
I saved the best for last, if you’re new to Japanese do-it-yourself candy kits then you’re really going to dig this 🙂 The instructions are fairly simple and the packaging contains all the necessary items, including an instructional illustration on the back of the packet.
You combine water with the first sachet and stir, then add in the second sachet to create a sticky fluffy consistency. For the last step you dip your mixture into the rock candy and serve. Its sweet, fun and tastes like sour grape soda.

Me too! Hubby and I are going back there in a few years when my boys are a little older.
They all look very interesting! I love that the product packaging always has some kind of cartoon/anime character on it :))
I love that too, the packaging grabs the buyers attention!
Awwww omg why food has to look such cutee!! Love how unique and cute are japanese/korean/chinese packings. Awesome!

Thank you very much!
Those are the cutest snacks ever!!!
Haha I agree, I wish our snacks were as visually pleasing 🙂
i love trying snacks from different countries, theyre so different than what we have here in the US. I always felt as though all Asian snacks are always packaged in the brightest more colorful animations which is so smart because its so appealing. it also helps that everything always tastes so good!
I agree, the bright fun packaging increases my appetite!
These snacks look so delicious! You took some really awesome pictures 🙂
Thank you very much!
