A while back, Twin mentioned to me that she wanted an OyatsuBox. (An OyatsuBox is a monthly subscription of treats from Japan.) But because I couldn't subscribe to it for a various of reasons, we decided to find something similar when we came across JapanCrate. As soon as I knew I could subscribe, I decided to do a one-month trial.
We finally received it, and since I was excited about it, I thought I would share the excitement by showing what we received!

It came with 9 full-sized snacks and candy straight from Japan. At first glance, it was all so colorful with some of the cutest characters on the packages! This month's Japan Crate consisted of wafers, gummies, a DIY kit where you get to create your own strawberry animal pancakes, white chocolate, and much more.
The first we tried was the Meiji White Chocolate, and when compared to American white chocolate, Japan's version is much sweeter and has more of a vanilla taste. I like white chocolate, but America's version pales in comparison to Japan's.
We also gave the Hi-Chew Minis a try, and while flavorful, the outer shell seemed to linger, giving it a real strange texture on the teeth. I didn't care for them but Twin decided they were her favorite.
We still have plenty of the candy & snacks left but I have a feeling that we'll be sampling them during the week. I am looking forward to the On Shokora Houjun, which is a chocolate-covered wafer with bits of berries. Yum!
