October 2014 Okashi Connection – Japanese Snack Subscription Box
Disclosure: I received this box free for review.
Okashi Connection, sent me this box to review. I loved their last box, so I was excited when I got September's box in the mail. They are a new Japanese candy subscription box, that ships worldwide! There is no shipping charge and boxes are $22.00! Okashi Connection sends a big box with about a pound of Japanese candy and snacks inside. They try to send items that are difficult or impossible to get outside of Japan and seasonal items. They also include some information about the candy, as well as a video, hosted by Karin (13) and Haruka (11), with their opinions and instructions on how to make / eat the items.
Shipping: Shipping is FREE and they ship WORLDWIDE. They don't ship to a few locations, click HERE to see a complete list.
What's in the box? We send a size 60 box with around a pound (between 400-600 grams) of Japanese candy and snacks. We strive to include things that are difficult or impossible to get outside of Japan and seasonal items. We also include some information about the candy, as well as a video, hosted by Karin (13) and Haruka (11), with their opinions and instructions on how to make / eat the items.
When am I charged? Your card will be charged on the 30th (or last day) of the month.
When does my box ship? Boxes will be shipped within the next week after being charged, and they should arrive at your door within 1-3 weeks after that.
Okashi Connection ships from Japan and comes in a plain brown box.
First Look: There was an information card on top.
The information card has all the products and names of each treat. You are also given a password to see more descriptions of each item.
Apple & Sweet Potato Pie: This is a box of 8 individually wrapped cookies. They have a shiny jelly coating on top and are quite tasty. My whole family loved these.
Saya Endou (salty peas): These are puffy pea snacks, similar to the snacks we have in the USA. These were also a hit!
Chocobi Choco: These are little chocolate crunchy stars. They tasted like chocolate cereal to me. These were a hit with my husband and 2 year old.
Puchi Well-Done Cheese: These are little puffy cheese discs. These taste like cheese balls and are so good. My family loved these as well (you will be reading that, throughout my review.
Mochi -Age (Fried Mochi) These are fried mochi and don't have too much of a taste. They have a baked puffy cracker taste. Again, my 2 year old loved these.
Kakigori (sno-cone) gumi These are gummy candies that take like Japanese snowcones. In Japan snow cones are not as sweet and also made with cream.
Disney Bourbon Elise: These are cookie sticks with banana and chocolate cream in the center. Each flavor has it's own side of the cookie. I was partial to the chocolate side, but both are good and I love the Disney characters on them.
Chocoball Caramel: These are tiny chocolate balls filled with caramel. They are small, chewy and delicious.
Final Thought: This was my favorite Okashi Connection thus far! A note about the above picture, the chocoballs somehow went missing and didn't make the picture. All the snacks this month were really good and my whole family loved them, especially my 2 year old. Okashi Connection is only $22.00 a month and it ships worldwide (free shipping).
