the January box
this month it is a calm down month after all the December candy.
So the January box laid out
GIANT CALPLICO CHOCOLATE BOMBER,
this is a giant icecream cone.filled with chocolate.
made with a wafer, with fluffy chocolate,this is a limited edition chocolate bomber that also has 2 layers of white chocolate and milk chocolate ,then covered in a hard dark chocolate shell,
this was really tasty and the size was huge that me and my son shared it.
it was an interesting taste not creamy more dry, and the consistency like an aero chocolate bar found in the UK aerated,
the packaging has popular anime and youkai characters. found in japan these are as popular as pokemon.
chocobi is tohato's most well known snack, made famous by the crayon shin- chan anime series,
these are crispy star shaped choco corn snacks.
these are very tasty ,crispy and the box does not last long.
these are pocky sticks but they shorter and fatter than the regular sized ones,
they have more chocolate and double the amount of strawberry chocolate,
these are sweet ,and quite sickly, i couldn't eat one of the mini packs in a session ,great for sharing,
id love to try other flavours of the midi collection.
PARIKORE GUMMY PEACH AND GRAPE .
Kano makes these are they are not the usual soft gummies, they have a unique crunchy outer layer.the inner is soft and chewy.
porikore comes from the name when you bite into it.
these have a mix of peach and grape flavours.
the texture was strange not a hard shell not a soft ,it had a crisp fine layer coating then a gummy underneath.
MORINAGA RAMUNE SODA CANDIES.
the traditional ramune bottle is filled with ramune flavoured candies,not hard candies as such they melt in the mouth ,
GASHAPON JAPANESE CAPSULE TOY,
these are going to be added each month and vary from box to box ,
gashapon are capsule toys that are available all over japan, they are high quality toys and accessories,
i received a keyring this month.
HANAKAPPA DIY JELLY,
OK this is a make it up kit, the candy kit is for jelly ,hannakappa is a Japanese kappa river creature.with a flower growing on its head.
this kit was easy to set up and make,
fill the cup with the powder and add with water tot he red line and stir as it grows in size in the cup then place int he fridge to set for 10 minutes.
HI CHEW MINI,
chewy candy with 4 flavours ,apple,grape.lemon,strawberry.
in an easy dispensing pocket pack,
puffy corn puffs ,these are fried squid and batter topped with Norri flavoured.
PUCCHO KUMAMOTO STRAWBERRY.
pouch are chewy fruit candies ,in various flavours,
this is a special edition made from strawberries from kumamoto,
the 2 types inside are creamy milk strawberry and fresh strawberry.
DON KOEDA CHOCOLATE
well this is a chocolate bar features fashion celebrity don - konishi.
its made of chocolate biscuit ,rice puffs,almond,
can't tell you if it was nice never tried it ,
found empty in sons bed , he says it was nice , a chocolate rice krispie bar.
so i like that this months box has a different appeal after the December box ,of which we are still finishing off.
for value for money and the fact in the UK we don't have many stores to buy this type of snacks from it still works out cheaper to buy a monthly box.variety is always good ,the choice is always mixed sweet and savoury,we liked the box this month for many reasons, the only thing uneaten so far is the pocky strawberry ,
roll on February's box .
