January’s crate had a variety of delicious flavors! We had a hard time picking our favorite one… so here are a few that we really enjoyed!!
JU-C Short Cake
These sweet ‘chip’ candies really tasted like strawberry short cake! Curious as to why there were candles on the package? Well that’s because it’s the 50th Anniversary of the sweet! Happy Anniversary Ju-C!!!
Asahi Calpis Gummy
Delicious gummies flavored after a traditional Japanese drink~! Calpis, AKA Calpico is a carbonated milky drink chock full of calcium! The gummies in the January Crate incorporate the drink directly into the candy in a gel form! Delicious!
Sparkling Orange Gummy
Pon Sparkling Orange is a super refreshing drink! Amazing on hot summer days in Japan, and also full of Vitamin C. That’s why the gummy version of this soft drink is perfect for the cold winter months! There was a really nice balance of sour on these!
Usushi / Ume Potato Chips
Do you watch Himouto! Umaru-chan? If yes, then you may have recognized these chips! We had two different types in the January Crate. Umaru’s favorite ~ Ushishi, a nice balanced salty chip that is perfect to eat with sweets. Or Ume ~ a super tasty Japanese pickled plum flavor! Which one did you get?
Yam White Chocolates
Oh boy… oh boy, oh boy. Sweet Potato is a very traditional flavor in Japanese sweets, so being given the chance to share a treat like this is, well, it’s a real TREAT! The great balance of earthy from the sweet potato along with the creamy of the white chocolate has made this a favorite of ours from the January Crate!
So how about it!? Which treat from this bouquet was -YOUR- favorite?
