okashi connection march edition,

its that time when all my candy subscriptions all turn up in one week and i spend the following week eating my way through the boxes and reviewing with my taste tester son

               OKASHI CONNECTION.
this is a Japanese candy and snack subscription box that comes out every month and is shipped world wide for $22.00 .postage is included in the price,
shipped direct from Tokyo,it takes about 2 weeks to get to the UK.
once opened you go onto the members blog and there you will find out about all the products in the box.
the box contains about a pound or 450g weight of candy and snacks which focus on seasonal items rather than weird filler items.
OK so on opening the box i knew this subscription was going to be a keeper.

also this month i was invited to buy the add on ,these you go to a link and then you can purchase as many of the items  as you want, i passed this month as it was chocolate,
you can find okashi connection here okashi connection website 
please add my referral code ljblog to the box when signing up thank you.

so what did we find in my box this month,

These sweet potato chips are a cross between a wotsit corn puff and a potato crisp,quite sweet in flavour but very tasty, this had a slight salty taste and like the company said varied to what your drinking at the time, it seemed to be less salty with a hot drink,

these are not instant noodles where you add water ,these are crispy noodles eaten from the pack, quite heavy on the garlic and they are very crumbly,but great for an energy hit or for snacking while doing revision or watching films, an interesting concept but a really good and big hit in japan

These are shrimp or prawn flavoured and really tasty,had them before ,very fishy but the intense flavour satisfies you for longer,a crispy snack. 

an aerated waffle biscuit filled with a dry aerated chocolate filling, these are great ,large and tasty and great with a hot drink to relax with.
these are sold with various fillings ,for instance red bean ,or cream cheese ,or black bean paste,

this is a layer of cotton candy with a strong melon flavour ,quite refreshing and it has cracking popping candy mixed in, this needs to be eaten straight away as the air kills the cotton candy quick,
