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.

Okashi Connection sends an information card with the names of all the snacks in the box. Once you subscribe, you will get a password to access a “member’s only” area.
Karamuncho: Karamuncho are spicy potato sticks. They had spicy nacho cheese flavor. My whole family enjoyed it.
A Closer Look: Karamucho
Cabbage Tarou: Cabbage Tarou is a corn snack flavored with Okonomiyaki sauce. The seasoning on the snacks tasted similar to sour cream and onion powder.

Anpanman Gumi: These were my favorite snacks in the box. The Gumis have a thin, clear paper attached. You shouldn’t try to remove the paper, as it is meant to be eaten. I received apple and grape flavors. Both gumis were very tasty. My kids loved them.

Note: It is difficult to see, but if you look close, you can see the thin paper.
Wata-Pachi Grape: This candy is pretty amazing. Wata-Pachi Grape is cotton candy with extremely strong Pop Rocks inside. The Pop Rocks are some of the strongest I have ever tried.

Doraemon Fluffy Choco Sandwich: The outside of this treat, tastes like an ice cream cone. The sandwich is filled with fluffy chocolate. This makes for a delicious treat. Everyone in my family liked this.

Cream Soda Candies: These candies taste just like cream soda.
Ottotto Consome Crackers: These are little animals flavored with consommÃ©. If you are lucky, you will get a unicorn. ConsommÃ© is hard to explain, but it has a salty beef flavor.

SakuSaku Panda Chocolate Cake: These are little chocolate cookies with cream in the center. The cookie part is very soft and sweet. These come in individual packages, so they won’t go stale.

Final Thought: This was a fantastic box. I loved last month’s Okashi Connection, but this month was even better. I would really love to find more Anpanman Gumis. The gumis were very tasty and so unique. My children had a great time being my little “taste testers”. If you are looking for a Japanese snack box, check out Okashi Connection.
