November Japan Crate Unboxing!

Japan Crate is a monthly subscription box starting at $12 (price varies by subscription) that ship worldwide and has free shipping! Each crate includes exclusive candy and snacks from Japan. In additional to candy and snacks, the crates also include a custom booklet that share descriptions of the products, , chances at monthly contests, and even a custom in-house manga.

Japan Crate also offera a few other subscription boxes too: a “Doki Doki Crate” filled with cutesy items (think plushies, cups, accessories), a “Kira Kira Crate” filled with beauty Items from Japan, and a “Umai Crate” that has a variety of noodles (ex. noodles from udon to yakisoba, spaghetti, soba, and ramen). Lots of choices to choose from!

November’s box has an autumn feel. Again, I purchased the Mini box which runs at $12 a month.

What I Received

Mike Popcorn: Brown Sugar Caramel – I am super excited to try these as I really enjoyed the Noodle Broth Base flavor I got back in September’s box.

From left to right:

Sono Manma Cola Gum & Kagikko Chocolate Key – I love Japanese Cola flavored candy so these should be delicious. I’m also curious about the Skeleton Key. It’s supposed to taste like M&M’s, but I know Japanese chocolate tends to be less sweeter. We’ll see

Rilakkuma Gum & Okusuriya -San Capsule Ramune – The Rilakkuma had such cute packaging, but unfortunately the flavor didn’t last long. The Ramune is a capsule candy which has packaging of retro Japanese medicine. My curiosity is piqued.

Overall Thoughts

I have to admit although I love Japan Crate this has been my least favorite box out of all of them. I felt I didn’t get my money’s worth and that the variety was lacking. Instead of having two different pieces of gum I felt like one of them could have been substituted for another type of candy. And while it was nice to get another flavor of Mike Popcorn I was hoping to try something new.

I do like that Japan Crate continues to share new Japanese and snacks/candy that would be harder to find in stores that sell this type of food. I have found new snacks that I want to try more of and share them with family and friends. I will renew my subscription for next month and hope that December’s box will bring lots of Holiday goodies! 🙂

I look forward to subscribing to future boxes from Japan Crate! For more info about the subscription box visit:
