Hello and happy Tuesday. I thought my Japan Candy Box had been a one-time purchase, but apparently I subscribed, which means in December I got a box. And I ate all the candy before taking a picture for the thumbnail, so instead you have that glossy magazine paper that comes with each box to illustrate what I ingested. Let’s get started, shall we?
Kanro Candemina Assembly
These are like blocks you can actually put together and “build” stuff. I think that’s the selling part of this, rather than the actual flavor. The pieces of candy are supposedly sour, but they taste so chemically that you can’t even sense it. I ate the entire bag (obviously), but I think if there’s a next time, I’ll just have one or two, for funsies.
Christmas Umaibo Chocolate Flavor
This apparently was a very forgettable chocolate bar because I don’t remember it at all. Chocolate is good. The fact that it’s forgettable means that I didn’t hate it, so at least there’s that.
Black Thunder Christmas Minibar
You know from last week’s post that I love crunchy chocolate bars, especially those with cookies in them. I can’t say a lot about this one because I really don’t remember it, but it must have been good. I know this isn’t the best review ever, but I want you to see the different kinds of snacks and candy included in the box, and for you to sense how varied it its.
Tohato Christmas Caramel Corn
In Colombia we have caramel snacks like this. Imagine the original Cheetos, but instead of tasting salty or having a cheese flavor, they taste like caramel. This is what these snacks were, and I’m pretty sure for some reason there were some stray peanuts at the bottom of the bag as well. I like that these were included because even though they’re sweet, they qualify more as a snack, so I think they’re an option for people who don’t really like candy, but who still enjoy caramel.
Bourbon Petit Cinnamon Biscuits
These cookies take the cake when it comes to this Japan Candy Box. They are teeny tiny tea cookies that taste like cinnamon and Christmas and love. I thoroughly enjoyed them and I wish the box had come with more. I’m not even a huge fan of cinnamon, but given that these cookies were so small, the amount was just perfect and not at all overpowering.
Ginbis Christmas Shimi Choco Corn Snack
I’m trying to remember this, but I’m having a hard time as well (sorry, I know I suck). In Colombia we also have chocolate-covered corn snacks, so I think that’s what these probably look and taste like. Again, the fact that this isn’t really considered candy makes it a very interesting option for people who just want a taste of something sweet.
Bourbon Tsum Tsum Xmas Biscuits and Yaokin Merry Christmas Fugashi Snack
I’m sorry, I really can’t help you with these ones. I have no idea what they are or what they taste like.
Glico Caplico Atama White Milk Chocolate
This was chocolate in the shape of an ice cream cone, and my only memory of it is that I wanted to drink a glass of water after I ate this. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good chocolate, but to me it was way too milky and sweet. If you like rich chocolate, that is thick and dense, then you’ll love this.
Fortune Telling Ramune Candy
Like the brick candy, these are cool because of the way they are presented, rather than because of their flavor. They just come like pills, and have different colors and designs on them. Other than that, they’re just like any other candy out there.
That’s it for today’s haul. In the comments below tell me about a subscription box you’ve tried recently and you’d like me to try as well.
Love, Miss Camila
