Foodie Friday: Candy Japan Box 1 Review
At the beginning of December, I saw an ad on Instagram for a twice a month snack box called Candy Japan, as I love my subscription boxes, I decided to sign up.
It cost £23.72 a month, and you receive a new box every two weeks.
At the end of December, my first box came.
As soon as I saw the box, I was surprised at how small it was, seeing that it cost £11.86 so my expectations were low, but when I opened the box I was actually disappointed as there were only two items in the box.
UHA Satsuma-imo and Murasaki-imo Chips & New Super Mario U Chocolate Coins
UHA Satsuma-imo and Murasaki-imo Chips are sweet potato crisps & New Super Mario U Chocolate Coins are chocolate coins. The thing is when I sign up for a subscription box I want to get my money’s worth, and this is not worth the money you pay.
UHA Satsuma-imo and Murasaki-imo Chips
UHA Satsuma-imo and Murasaki-imo Chips or as we call them in the UK Crisps, These are Sweet Potato Crisps, you have the regular Sweet Potato and the Purple Sweet Potato.
This was the content of the bag not a lot at all.
The crisps are a lot thicker them normal crisps they reminded me of Kettle Crisps but thicker.
The taste was not for me I love sweet and salty mixed but this was too sweet, it was like eating sugar of a crisp because the crisp are made from sweet potato, they are already sweet tasting. I’m glad I tried them, but I wouldn’t have them again.
New Super Mario U Chocolate Coins
This was a bag around the size of a packet of crisps, which had individually wrapped chocolate coins
This is clearly aimed at kid and Super Mario fans.
Inside the bag, you have individually wrapped chocolate coins there was a total of 8 chocolate coins.
Each wrapper has a different colour and Super Mario figure which is a fun idea.
Sadly the chocolate isn’t very nice its edible but of poor quality, it reminds me of when I was young and you would get 1p sweets, and there were chocolate tools. I would not buy these, and I still have 6 left as I just didn’t like them.
My first box was a disappointment.
What Should I Make Next?
