Why are Japanese snacks so special?

If you’re wondering why Japanese treats are so special, the answer is in the flavors. Japan is known for bizarre and unique flavor combinations that are unlike anything else in the world. Japanese foods are also aesthetically interesting making them fun to eat and look at.


Are TokyoTreat snacks from Japan?

Yes!  The items in every TokyoTreat box can only be found in Japan and you won’t find any of these snacks in your local grocery store. It is a perfect way to try new treats without ever having to leave home. Each box is guaranteed to be completely stuffed with fun food that will help take your snack time to a whole new, exciting level.

TokyoTreat Box Review: Favorites

There were certainly a lot of snacks in the TokyoTreat box! Here are a few of the ones we loved and a little more about them:

1. Strawberry Milk KitKats- The bag of KitKats was huge! Plenty to share and enjoy more than once. The strawberry flavor was tasty and went well with the white chocolate. They were all individually wrapped and perfect for snacking on the go.  Shop now >>

3. Yakisoba Snack- These crunchy noodles tasted just like a bowl of ramen. However, they were much easier to eat than a bowl of soup! Very flavorful, crunchy, and a great snack for when you need something salty.  Shop now >>

TokyoTreat Box Review: Surprises

As we mentioned before, Japan is known for over-the-top, interesting flavors. Here are a few of the snacks we found very unique and surprising:

1. Japanese Squid Cracker- This bite-sized cracker tastes just like squid. It had a strong seafood flavor with the crunch of a cracker. It was even shaped like a little squid! Shop now >>

2. Noshiume Plum Candy- The plum candy was reminiscent of fruit leather- a dried, flat piece of fruit. There was quite a bit of juice in the packaging which made the candy super sticky.

The sweet and sour taste was powerful and definitely unlike any fruit candy we have tried! Shop now >>

3. Full Moon Pon Cracker- If you like soy sauce, then this cracker is for you. Imagine a rice cake that has a strong soy sauce taste and that is exactly what this is. Very crunchy and salty.  Shop now >>

TokyoTreat Box Review: Bottom Line

tokyotreat premium japanese snack box snacks-tokyotreat box review-mealfinds

TokyoTreat is filled with high-quality, trendy Japanese snacks and delivered to your door directly from Japan each month.

The TokyoTreat box was really fun to receive. Everything inside was unique, flavorful, and not something I would typically buy or find in the grocery store. There was a good balance between sweet and savory items.

Our February box did contain a lot of strawberry-flavored items (7 out of 17 were strawberry) for Valentine’s day and that was a bit much for us.

The premium box was worth the extra $9 since the additional 5 items were full-sized and shareable, but the added shipping cost each month put this box on the more expensive end of the Japanese snack box market.

If you are looking for a unique birthday or Christmas gift, want to spice up your snack rotation, or if you just love the flavors of Japan, TokyoTreat is for you! Shop now >>
