Japan Candy Box Unboxing, Review & Giveaway

For someone who had never tried Japanese candy, I sure am getting my fair share recently. This month I tried the Japan Candy Box*, a subscription box that sends out a colourful selection of Japanese candy and snacks every month.

The packaging is adorable with lots of lilac, pastel pink and kawaii illustrations making the unboxing experience super exciting. In this month’s box there was 10 yummy treats to try and even though it’s called a candy box, there was actually a fab selection of both sweet and savoury snacks.
The majority of the contents were gummie candies including an obligatory DIY kit, Kasugai 100% Fruit Juice Gummies and Meji Mini Grape Gummies. Meji are a really popular Japanese candy brand and they produce the adorable Hello Panda biscuits so I was excited to try more of their products.

The savoury items consisted of Calbee Sapporo Potato Vegetable Snacks and Bourbon Petit Grilled Pizza Rice Crackers. I really thought the pizza crackers would be my favourite item (I mean, how can you go wrong with pizza?) but unfortunately I didn’t like it too much. Maybe it’s because I’m the world’s fussiest eater but either way it didn’t float my boat -sad times-.
By far the item I was most excited about was the Fujiya Milky Peko X Sanrio Chocolates! This is an adorabley packaged box of pastel pink, strawberry coated chocolates shaped as various Peko and Sanrio characters - Too. Stinking. Cute. This item was totally up my street and I’ll probably order more in the future!

For as little as $18.20 (around £12.42) Japan Candy Box offer an excellent variety of Japanese treats every month. There's plenty of snacks for all to enjoy whether you want something sweet or savoury, want to indulge in popular Japanese brands like Meji or want to try something new, that you might have never heard of before. All the items are beautifully packaged in adorable, authentic packaging which really adds to the whole experience.

The only constructive feedback I have is that the box could benefit from being securer and the items need preserving a bit better. My box arrived a little smushed and unfortunately the delightful, Peko & Sanrio chocolates had completely melted into a congealed pile *cries*. It was still completely edible but obviously I didn't get the full unboxing experience I was hoping for. However, I know Japan Candy Box are always improving their service so I'm sure they will resolve this issue soon. Overall I think if you love Japanese candy and you are adventurous with trying new foods then this is the perfect subscription box for you. If you want to give them a try then keep reading as I'm giving away a box!

Yep, that's right! I'm giving one lucky reader the chance to win a full month's Japan Candy Box to try. All you have to do is follow the steps below (being sure to follow my blog on Bloglovin) and that's it!
