Japan Candy Box | Review + GIVEAWAY

Friday, August 21, 2015

For the past few days I've been in my laboratory (a.k.a. my room) on a sugar high. Japan Candy Box  was too kind and sent me an adorable box full of Japanese candy and all of its sugary goodness~ If you're not familiar with Japan Candy Box it is a subscription box full of yup you guessed it---CANDY~ Each month you will receive 8-10 Japanese sweet treats and quirky candy to enjoy to your hearts content. These sweet little boxes start at only $18.90 a month and subscribing is 100% safe and secure---meaning you can cancel anytime!

Um, I don't know about you, but Japanese candy and I are a thing. Scratch that candy and I are a  THING. But, I have always had a special spot in my heart for Japanese candy. With it's flipping adorable packaging and sugary adventures it's no wonder we're soul mates~  And what do you do with your soul mate? You DEVOUR  them---and that's exactly what I did~

Hey, didn't I say this was a laboratory---let the candy experiments commence~

Glico Collon Biscuit Rolls 
Don't let the name fool you these adorable little biscuits have absolutely nothing to do with your lower intestines. In the center the biscuit is filled with creamy green tea matcha flavoring. While I really enjoyed the surprisingly rich and cream texture I found the flavor too subtle for me. What can I say I like my sweets SUPER SWEET. If you're a fan of delicate sweets and something that doesn't overpower your taste buds you will love this snack---me on the other hand---BRING ON THE SUGAR!

Haradekita Popsicle DIY Candy Kit

Have you ever wanted to make your own miniature Popsicle? Well you crazy if you don't because I know I do! This adorable DIY candy kit was so FUN to make. The kawaii sized popsicles were not only cute, but taste super yummy and came in both strawberry + soda flavor! The powdered sugar transforms your candy ice cubes into what looks like real ice except without the brain freeze. What more could you want?!

Bourban Petit Chocolate Chip Cookies
If something has chocolate in it I'm going to eat it. These cookies were no exception. Wait, it even gets better. What if I told you these little cookies tasted exactly like hot chocolate? Yeah, I can guarantee you I finished all those cookies in a day. No regrets~

Meji Watapachi Popping Candy Floss 
Have you ever had cotton candy explode in your mouth? Yeah, neither have I until just now and let me tell you something---it was AWESOME~  The watermelon flavored cotton candy is layered and layered with mini candy pop rocks just waiting to  attack your mouth---in a good way of course! Life supply of watermelon cotton candy for one please~ Never thought I would be saying that did you? But, it's true the stuff is delicious I swear~

Pokemon Pineapple Chewy Candy

Pokemon + Taffy = LIFE
The chewy candy is adorned in the cutest pokemon characters.

Strawberry Pocky Biscuits
 This girl right here is crazy for pocky. If you're not familiar with the extremely popular sweet Japanese treat it is basically a biscuit coated traditionally in a creamy sweet chocolate. This time around I've got strawberry and guys, guys *holds in tears of happiness* I may have found a new favorite~
Pocky drama.

Meji Petit Bubble Gum 

These cute bubble gum faces just give me all the feels. The fact that it's soda flavored makes it all the better~
Guess which bubble face is mine?

Sakuma LINE Drops
When I opened this cute bunny packaging I was surprised to find what looked like three pink cough drops. It's your standard hard candy which you can find about anywhere---but these were a little different. Yup, you guessed it---watermelon flavored. Who knew I loved watermelon so much. . .

Maruta Soda Fruit Candy
You remember Sweet Tarts from your childhood? You know that really chalky candy? Yeah, this little soda bottle is full of those except in cola flavor. Chalky candy and I do not mix, but at least the bottle is cute.

Chameleon Candy
What's in the chameleon bag you ask? Well I'll tell you what's in the bag! Mini jawbreakers. But, not any jawbreakers---jawbreakers that change color just like a chameleon! Now if only I could do the same thing will my life be complete. . .

*dabs sweat off my forehead* Whew, now that was a long review, but what kind of person would I be if I didn't eat this candy and tell you about it?!
