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.

First Look

007

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.

008

“Sweet Potato” Chips: These are a light and fluffy chip that tastes just like sweet potatoes.  My whole family really loves these.

066

This is a look at the chips

019

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.

072

This is what the Ramen looks like.
017

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.

075

This is a look at the Ebi Sembei Chips.

018

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.

078

This is what the PukuPukuTai looks like.

015

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.

062

This is a look at Watapachi Melon Soda.  You can’t see the Poprocks, but they are buried in the cotton candy.

014

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.

013

Dars White Chocolates: This is a box of white chocolate.  They have a great flavor.

068

This is a look at the chocolate., super yummy.

011

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.

073

This is a look at the Pocky.  I like the cute little characters on the foil package.

010

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.

070

This is a look at the cookies.  My 3-year-old loves these.

009

Blueberry Tartlets: These are soft cookies with blueberry jelly on top.  These are over half gone in my house, my whole family loved them.

064

This is a look at the cookie.  I like that they are individually wrapped, so they all stay fresh longer.

021

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.
