Hello and happy Sunday. I’m excited to write this post because as of today, my Japan Candy Box subscription has ended, but I’m already subscribed to a new service and I think you’ll enjoy reading about it, especially if you live in Colombia. Today we’re going to talk about the snacks I got in my July 2019 box. The theme for that month was Ice Cream & Sunshine!
Tohato Bino Bold & Hard Salted Edamame Snacks
Give me all the edamame snacks. I don’t know why, but I love them all. My first impression is always “wow, this tastes weird,” but then I end up eating the whole bag and maybe even considering buying more bags afterwards.
Mini Chocochip Mint Cookies
I like that combination, so I enjoyed eating these cookies. I know many people don’t like the taste of mint and chocolate together, but I do. I suggest you try them; they’re not the mint chocolate chip Milano cookies, but they’re alright.
Picola Creamy Coconut Milk Wafers
You probably don’t know this about me, but I love these things. We call them “pirulines” or “barquillos” in Colombia and they’re the best thing ever. The coconut flavor is A+. I’ve complained before that some vanilla or cream-flavored stuff I’ve gotten in my boxes tastes like butter, but this doesn’t. It’s soft, it’s nice, it’s sweet without being overwhelming…I’m a fan.
Calbee Cheese Bit Corn Snack
I had totally forgotten that this box contained some of my favorite snacks. Give me cheese flavored corn chips any day. These were so good, I would’ve traded other items in my box to get another bag of these. I think I even rebought them or considered doing it.
Crunky Soh Vanilla Ice Cream Chocolate
This is what I’m talking about when I say some flavors taste like pure butter. I don’t understand these chocolate bars and it seems like I got one every month. I don’t like the texture, I don’t like the flavor or the feeling it got in the back of my mouth. Honestly, I would prefer to get a box full of savory snacks than one with chocolate.
Strawberry Soft Ice Cream Marshmallow
This is the kind of candy you can find at a kid’s party because it looks cute. It was nice, the marshmallow was actually coated with sugar, but it’s a tiny little thing, and not very memorable. Cute, yes, but that’s pretty much it.
Fizzy Grape Ramune Ball
This one is pretty much the same as the next candy, so I’ll be brief. It’s like taking a grape-flavored Alka-Seltzer. I don’t like it.
Morinaga Grape Ramune Bottle Candy
Like I said, these are grape-flavored fizzy candies. They have the consistency of chalk and leave a weird feeling in the mouth. Hard pass.
Yaokin Colorful Baby’s Marshmallows
These are my kind of marshmallows, the tiny ones that have different colors and flavors. Japanese marshmallows are kind of hit or miss for me, but these were definitely a hit.
Tohato Anpanman Potato Snack
I’ll say what I’ve said before: give me all the potato chips. Give me only corn and potato chips if you want to. I haven’t tried a chip I don’t like. I would buy these for myself.
Which of these snacks would you like to try and why? Let me know in the comments below.
Love, Miss Camila
