Japan Candy Box review and giveaway!

Who likes sweets?  Me too!  Well the lovely people at Kawaii Box also sell a product called Japan Candy Box which is full of exotic treats.  They asked me if I would like to review a box for them and run a giveaway so one of you could try a box too!  Of course I said yes!   

I was really excited when the box arrived and couldn't wait to see what was inside!  Be warned this is a very picture heavy post....

You get between 8 and 10 items in each box and subscriptions start from a one of box through to a 12 month plan.  You can see all the options and prices here.

Mmmm it all looks good!

I got ten treats in my box and they all looked really interesting!

The rest of the treats

The first thing I tried was these cute Lotte Koala March Biscuits.  They have a crisp biscuit shell and a nice milk chocolate filling.  I really liked them, they are very moreish!

Next was some Bourbon Petit White Chocolate stuffed cookies, these are really tasty!  The biscuit part reminds me of viennese whirls and even though I'm not a fan of white chocolate the filling was nice and creamy without being too sweet.

The Pocky Panda Cookie Sticks are similar to Mikado which are a favourite in this house.  I think these ones are cookies and cream flavour and they get two thumbs up from me!

When I first saw these I thought they were supposed to be pink doughnuts but when I checked the card I saw they were Strawberry Whistle Candy.  You hold the sweet up to your lips and blow through the hole and they do make a whistling sound!  My children loved these, especially my four year old who can't whistle yet. The little blue dog figure is the prize that came in the box with the sweets.

The Meiji Juice Gummies are very orangy and refreshing.  It was nice to try something so fruity after all the biscuits I had eaten.

I am not a fan of mango.  I like the smell but I've never really liked the taste so I didn't think I was going to like the Puccho Mango Chew Candy but I did.  They taste kind of like peach to me but they are very, very chewy.  You feel like your mouth has had a workout after eating one of these!

Meiji Mini Candy tastes just like Smarties or M&M's, they are candy shells filled with chocolate and quite nice.  You can't go wrong with that combination in my opinion.

The Puccho Awawawa Ball Candy was a big hit!  They are really sour at first, after that wears off it is a nice grape flavour.  They are also quite hard so you have to suck them for a while before you can bite them open.  In the centre is a chewy grape flavour filling that was a bit of a surprise.  I love sour sweets so these are great!

Hands up, I will admit I'm not sure what to do with this kit!  There are instructions on the back of the packet but they are written in Japanese and I can't quite figure out what to do just using the illustrations.  It looks like a fun kit but until I work it out I can't say how good it is!

I didn't really like these biscuits.  The packaging is very cute but they remind me of Rusks baby biscuits and I've not liked those since I was a toddler!  They aren't horrible though, just a bit plain.
