Japan Candy Box is a newer affordable Japanese Snack Box from the folks at Kawaii Box (Blippo).

jcbJapan Candy Box
19.90$ Per Month
Ships Worldwide

jc11Japan Candy Box is quite affordable given it’s 19.90$ price tag when compared to some of its competition. It features a variety of sweets, and at least 1 DIY kit per box. Each box features between 8-10 snacks of varying type and size. This box is the only one that’s specifically on the sweet end of the spectrum, so no shrimp puffs here.

jc6Each box comes with an info card the lists the items you get. (The giveaway is at the bottom of the post in case you want to auto-scroll in a fit of anarchy)

jc5Lotte Koala March Biscuits
Chocolate filled cookies with Koala’s printed on them. These are fairly common here in the US, but still delicious all the same.

Dorayaki Japanese Hotcake
Two fluffy pancakes between a maple syrup glaze. BREAKFAST.

jc4Meiji Petit Bubblegum
Grape flavored miniature gum. They kind of taste like chicklets, but they do last quite awhile. Great grape flavor too :D

Pokemon Pikachu Pretzels
These are very similar to pocky, but the sticks have a deeper pretzel flavoring while the cream is vanilla. It’s vaguely cookies and cream. Mmm.

jc3Kabaya Fish/Frog Gummies
Fish gummies that thankfully taste nothing like fish! These have tadpole, egg and fish shapes and are as sweet as any other gummy but with very good chew.

Yaokin Sour Paper Candy
It’s a strip of candy with a sour cola taste. It tastes more like, really overcarbonated soda, but it’s really quite tasty.

jv2Marukawa Gum
This little box contains about 4 gum pieces. The only fault this really has is it looses its flavor after about .2 seconds.

Meiji Kotsubu Chocolates
Tiny chocolates! These are incredibly similar to M&Ms, but have a taste closer to Smarties (the Canadian version). These are colorful strawberry chocolates.

Puccho Mixed Fruit Chewy Candy
Puccho is similar to Hi-Chew in the fact that it has an outer taffy “shell” that conceals some sort of flavor packet, this one has strips of flavoring that explode similar to gushers.

jc1Popin’ Cookin’ Neri Candy Land DIY Kit
DIY kits are crazy popular in Japan, and they’re very fun for kids and adults alike. This one encourages you to make several types of shapes and animals, similar to sculpting out of clay.

jcaConsidering that this box offers only sweet items and many of them are full size, I’d say it’s worth a shot, especially if you don’t care for the savory end of the spectrum. The flavors in this box are a bit “safe,” as in they’re more subtle and won’t shock you once you try them, though the textures may be surprising (in the best way!). If you’re interested in Japanese Candy at all, I highly suggest Japan Candy Box. At 19.90, it’s one of the cheaper choices that won’t break the bank. Click here to sign up for Japan Candy Box.
