The information card is colorful brochure that describes each snack in the box.


Okashi Connection does a great job at explaining each snack.


Calpis Marshmallows: These are smalls soft and chew marshmallows with a calpis cream in the center.  Caplis has a milk-like filling int the middle.  M 6 year old doesn’t love it

Pokemon Pineapple Chewing Candy

Pokemon Pineapple Chewing Candy:  This looks like gum, but these are sticks of chewing candy.  They have a nice pineapple taste and slowly dissolve in your mouth.  Each wrapper features a cartoon, puzzle, Pokemon bio and stickers.


Doreaemon Tokkae Gum:  This package contains a blue stick of gum and a yellow stick.  The yellow stick of gum tastes like soda and the blue, lemon.  The gum is soft and very flavorful.

Sour Lemon Chewing Gum:  This gum contains three gum balls but only one is super sour.  When L and I did our tasting video, I think he got the super sour ball.

MokoMoko Himo Q Gumi

MokoMoko Himo Q Gumi This is a long puffy gumi that is half blue, half yellow, which is melon soda and ramune.  My 6 year old really loved this and I am saving the other half for my 3 year old.

Chameleon Candy:

Chameleon Candy:  These hard candy balls are cola flavored then turn yellow, green or purple depending on your mood.  Yellow is a little happy, green is so-si and purple is not happy at all.  My whole family loved these, well T didn’t get any yet because they are a bit of a choking hazard.

Country Ma'am Lemon Cookies

Country Ma’am Lemon Cookies  We have had the strawberry cookies but the lemon were new.  These are moist soft cookies with a lemon filling inside.

Pucca Lemon Choco

Pucca Lemon Choco These look like fish and octopus (according to my son) and are a pretzel coating filled with lemon.

Choco Anpan

Choco Anpan: These are flaky pieces of bread filled with chocolate.  These have a great rich chocolate flavor

Fried Potato Sticks: Cheese

Fried Potato Sticks: Cheese  Hmmm these are my favorite snack from the box.  The crunchy potato sticks are covered in a cheddar powder.  Between my son and I these are already gone.

    Hi I was wondering if you knew the time frame it took for you to receive your box? I recently subscribed and I want to estimate when I’ll be receiving my own.

      I don’t know, it usually just shows up. I did find this on their FAQs “You should receive your box around the middle or later portion of the following month you subscribed.

      Once you’ve subscribed, little happens. You’ve basically secured a spot in our next shipment. Payment is collected on the 30th of the month, and boxes are shipped the next week. Shipping takes about 1-3 weeks according to Japan Post, although that is no guarantee. For more on shipping, please see that section.”
