November’s crate is filled with delicious flavors, from sour and sweet to rich and creamy. Read on to learn more about the traditional flavors and candies of Japan included in this month’s crate!
Purple Potato Sweet Sticks
A recent blog post of ours highlighted what purple potato is all about in Japan. We are so excited to introduce it into your November crate! A flavor that’s just as seasonal as Pumpkin, purple sweet potatoes are a Fall/Winter favorite in Japan. These light, crispy sticks are sweet and delicious, and taste just like a purple sweet potato!
Mmm chocolate. This Black Thunder treat is one of our all-time favorite snacks! A chocolate bar with a name inspired by the Japanese god of thunder, it’s filled with cookie pieces and rice puffs, and topped with dark chocolate.
Meiji Dice Caramel
These fun caramel candies have been around since Japan’s Taisho era (1911-1925); can you believe it?! The package is made to resemble a set of 5 dice, each with a caramel hidden inside. How about using them during your next game night, and letting the winner enjoy a delicious reward?!
Glico Man Caramel
The company ‘Glico’ has been producing these signature caramel treats since 1935. The delicious heart-shaped caramels symbolize a human’s heart and their signature “running man” featured as the company’s mascot and logo, all intended to represent good health!
The company’s catchphrase “300 meters in a single race” symbolizes the exact number of calories a man would need to enter a 300-meter race.
In addition to the yummy caramels, a small toy is included, encouraging kids to stay healthy even more. Today, Glico caramels still remain a strong, delicious treat for all to enjoy!
