Take a break from soda and enjoy this orange drink with real orange pulp! The pulp adds a burst of flavor each time you taste it! Add a couple drops of food coloring and turn this drink into a pulpy witch’s brew for a Halloween treat!

Karu Satsuma Murasaki Imo Flavor

Sweet potatoes are a popular fall and winter flavor in Japan, but have you hear of murasaki imo? These purple sweet potatoes offer a creamier and sweeter flavor than regular sweet potatoes. Enjoy them as crispy potato sticks with a hint of salt!

Poteko Umashi Flavor

Poteko chips are popular in Japan and it’s common for kids to stack the rings on their fingers! Umashi Flavor means “lightly salted” and these chips are quite addictive. They’re tasty and fun to eat! Try playing “ring toss” with a friend on your fingers!

Go-En Ga Aru Yo

Five yen in Japanese culture is more than just currency. This is why you can often find chocolate versions in old dagashi shops! G0-en (five yen) sounds “relationship” in Japanese so the coins are considered lucky!

Nyusankin Ikitemasu! Yogurt Candy

Having a healthy stomach is important… so you can eat more snacks! This unique candy has probiotic bacteria to promote good digestion and come in a soothing yogurt flavor.

Zombie Maker Gum

Create your own zombie with this fun DIY kit! Inside each package is a card with a zombie character that you can customize with stickers. Each card is different, so you may get a pirate, school girl, or even house wife zombie! Enjoy the soda flavor come that comes in each packet as you design your new zombie friend!

Surprise! Horror Gum

These horror temporary tattoos are a perfect surprise scare for anyone! Each packet comes with two realistic wound tattoos. Trim around the design and place it design side down on clean, dry skin. Using a wet towel, hold down the design for 25 seconds or until the white backing peels off easily. Each packet also comes with a piece of banana flavored gum!

Nikuidaizu: Pepper Jerky Flavor

In the mood for something weird? This beef jerky is not what it appears to be… It’s actually  made from soy beans! Flavored and shaped to look like Peppered Jerky, this had a bit of an odd texture, but was still fun to try.

Nama Cream Pie

If you love the buttery and flaky crust of a pie, you’re going to love these petit Palmier cookies. Made with fresh cream, these cookies are a nice change from candy this month. They also come in cute heart shapes and go great with tea!

Potato Chips: Shio Flavor

With all the candy that you’ll be receiving for Halloween, you’ll need something salty to balance everything out. Luckily, this month’s crate featured Potao Chips in shio flavor! Round out that sweetness with something salty!

Oshaberi Wan Ko

“Oshaberi Wan Ko” means “Chatty Dogs.” Each chocolate bar comes with a cute card featuring an adorable puppy! Each puppy has a message to tell you so if you rub the black bubble, words will appear! There are too many cards to translate, but we’ve translated a few so that you can get an idea of what gossip the puppies are saying!

Midori Beh Aoi Beh Gum

Part of the name of this candy is “Beh”, which is the sound you make when you stick out your tongue in Japanese. These two fun sticks of chewy candy will dye your tongue either a bright blue or bright green! Give it a shot! Open up and say, “Beeeeehhhh~!”
