Japan Crate April 2016: Here’s What You Missed!
⬅️ Sakupan Giant Wafer
Sakupanda is back in another form, a giant cookie wafer! Enjoy the creamy, chocolatey goodness in cute panda form. They are filled with aerated chocolate and taste similar to kitkats, yummyyy!
⬅️ Sherbert Pero Cola
The candy is like a mix of American Pop Rocks and Fun Dip. It includes a lollipop and some powder for dipping. The lollipop provides the sweetness of cola while the powder adds the fizzy punch.
⬅️ Puru Mocchi Grape Flavor
Puru Mocchi comes in several different fruit flavors! These square, sugar-coated chewy candies are super oishii (delicious)!
⬅️ Pineapple Soda
Pineapple can only grow in Japan’s tropical island, Okinawa. Fruits in Japan are generally expensive due to the fact that they can’t grow in Japan’s mountainous terrains, so pineapple flavored drinks and snacks are a great way to enjoy it!
⬅️ Rock, Pape, Scissor Gummy
A gummy hand that comes in the shape of Rock, Paper, or Scissors. Try to guess which shape you’ll get, or open yours with a fellow subscriber to play!
⬅️ Fruit Shop Gummy
Each fruit gummy tastes just like the fruit it’s shaped after! Just the right size, squishiness, and sweetness! Do you think these gummies are better flavored than U.S. fruit gummies? Let us know in the comments!
⬅️ Wow!? Such Banana!
Back by popular demand! This fun snack is a banana flavored mashmallow with chocolate cream filling. A little reminiscent of the American twinkie.
⬅️ 123 Green Apple Gum
An example of old-fashioned Japanese candy, this little pack of gum is meant to fit well in small pockets to be enjoyed on the go!
Adorable heart chocolates made by Glico, the same company that makes Pocky. They are slightly crunchy filled with an airy chocolate. It’s like biting into a little chocolate cloud!
⬅️ Chip Star Ebikoubashi
The resealable tube of potato chips is a lot like American Pringles, but with a taste Japanese flavor: Shrimp. Check out our other blog, Shrimp Chip Showdown, to learn more about these shrimp chips!
