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 FREE.
As I stated before, there is an information sheet to identify the names of each snack and then more information is provided on their blog.
â€œSweet Potatoâ€ Chips: These are a light and fluffy chip that tastes just like sweet potatoes. My whole family really loves these.
This is a look at the chips
GariBori Spicy Garlic Ramen: This looks like the Ramen you cook, but it is made as a cracker/chip version. This has a slight spice, but it wasn't too spicy to enjoy.
This is what the Ramen looks like.
Ebi Sembei Chips: These are shrimp flavored chips. They have a light crunch and the have more of a shrimp smell, than an actual shrimp taste. I have had something similar before, and like them.
This is a look at the Ebi Sembei Chips.
PukuPukuTai: I have had this in a previous box and it was really good. This is a cookie/chocolate treat that is shapes like a fish. The cookie part tastes just like an ice cream cone (the cone part) and it is filled with fluffy chocolate.
This is what the PukuPukuTai looks like.
Watapachi Melon Soda: This is cotton candy and Poprocks mixed into one treat. I have had this before, and I wish I could buy it locally. The flavor is melon soda, which tastes similar to cream soda in America.
This is a look at Watapachi Melon Soda. You can't see the Poprocks, but they are buried in the cotton candy.
Umi no Gumi Zukan DIY: This is a fun DIY candy kit. You get a plastic tray, water dropper and some candy powders. You mix various powders to get candy gummies. I have had these DIY kids before and they were really fun. Okashi Connection included the instructions in English and put them on their blog.
Dars White Chocolates: This is a box of white chocolate. They have a great flavor.
This is a look at the chocolate., super yummy.
Pocky Koma-San Milky Cream: Okashi Connection noted on their blog that they don't try to send Pocky, since it is so popular, but this is a special box. The box is a Limited Edition design and the flavor is also limited edition. The box features a cartoon dog, that is made to represent the statues of dogs in front of Japanese shrines. These are crunchy sticks and they are covered 3/4 of the way with a milky/icing coating. These were really good.
This is a look at the Pocky. I like the cute little characters on the foil package.
Pucca Chocolates: These cookies are similar to Koala's March, but the outside is a much crunchier cookie. These are filled with chocolate and are fantastic.
This is a look at the cookies. My 3-year-old loves these.
Blueberry Tartlets: These are soft cookies with blueberry jelly on top. These are over half gone in my house, my whole family loved them.
This is a look at the cookie. I like that they are individually wrapped, so they all stay fresh longer.
Final Thought: One again, Okashi Connection delivered a box packed with goodies. My family enjoyed every single snack, so nothing will be wasted. I received a few old favorites and many new treats. Okashi Connection is a fantastic deal and my family always enjoys the box. If you want to Okashi Connection, click HERE to subscribe and use the code Boxmom to get $1.00 off your box.
