January’s Japan Crate Review
- Mini is 12 per month and you receive 4 to 6 items
- Original is 25 per month with 8 to 10 items plus a DIY Kit Guaranteed.
- Premium is $30 per month with 12-14 items, a drink, a DIY Kit, and a bonus item. If you are trying to choose between the Original and Premium I think the $5 extra dollars is worth it.
Ju-C Short Cake– It’s wrapped like Mentos candy, they look almost like Tums tablets but thankfully they taste way better. The flavor is obviously strawberry shortcake. The description labels it as “chip” candy, which I thought was interesting. You can call this candy whatever you like because I love it!
Usushi/Ume Potato chips– You either get the Usushi chips which is a lightly salted potato chips or the Ume (plum flavored chips). I received the Usushi (lightly salted) chips. I am not that picky with chips, I love potato chips. I do wish I could have tried the Ume (plum) to compare.
Sparkling Orange Gummy– These gummies are shaped like little bottles and are orange flavored. It is lightly covered in sugar and is the perfect mix of sweet and sour.
Pokemon Pineapple Candy – I thought this was gum at first, especially because of how it’s wrapped but I learned pretty quick it’s not. The Japan crate description of the item explains that “It’s a cultural taboo to take food out of your mouth in Japan, so candy maker created candy that chews like gum while dissolving.” I just learned something new. This candy tasted just like pineapple, which is delicious. As Japan Crate says,” Shockingly sweet and loveable like our friend Pikachu!” I kind of didn’t want to try this candy at first because each stick is wrapped nicely and feature a different Pokemon. You give me something with Mega Charizard on it, I fee like it would be unforgivable to destroy.
Pizza Pretz– These were probably my least favorite out of the box but that doesn’t mean they were terrible. They weren’t bad actually. They are just pretzel sticks flavored like pizza. Not my
preferred cup of tea.
Sukitto Lemon C Drink– This drink contains Vitamin C and taste like Lemon. It’s basically a Lemon soda, I enjoyed it though.
