Japan Candy Box Valentines Edition & Giveaway.

Japan Candy Box is a monthly subscription box which works out around £15.70p in GSP. Each candy box includes hard to find seasonal and exclusive Japanese candies. Including some favourites like Pocky and Kitkat. Everyone knows Japan is the king of the different flavoured Kitkats.

So inside this months box we got a selection of 10 treats. I liked the variety of this box, I know the Halloween one had quite a few puff snacks in and this box was great with different contents.. 

I’m going to start off with the favourite, here in the UK there isn’t much variety to a Kitkat, so the party ice cream Kitkat was a massive hit! Definitely wish is was a bigger sized bar for sure.

Calbee Say Endo Edamame Snacks was my favourite out of the box, I absolutely love a pea snack and we are lucky in the UK that they come on a variety of flavours. These was lovely as they was plain just slightly seasoned with a pinch of salt! Yum.. 

Fujiyama Look Strawberry Butter Sandwich Cookies. These was yummy favourite day cream chocolate with biscuit inside. One strawberry and buttercream. 

Eiwa Heart Marshmallows - Fluffy marshmallows in strawberry, pineapple and melon flavours.

Frozen 2 chocolate bar, chocolate covered biscuit.

Koikeya Karamucho hot chilli potato chips. Tiny sticks of chilli goodness, I loved these.

Kanro pure flowery double peach gummies. Sour flavoured white peach and yellow peach flavour.

Maruta flower inspired konpeito. Tiny star sweets introduced in Japan by the Portuguese in the 16th century.

Marukyo Momiji manjya - A specialty shaped maple leaf and filled it’s a red bean paste. 

Baby star ramen maru chicken noodle snacks. Indulge in a warm bowl of Ramen, delicious Chunchon noodle snacks.

Baa Baa Bubbles Game Review

This Christmas we have been testing a new game from Spinmaster. Baa Baa Bubbles is a fantastic game for all of the family, 3+ years. Inside the box is Baa Baa, the meadow tiles and the bubble solution. The game is all assembled and doesn’t need any batteries, which is always a plus! 

Apply the solution onto Bubbles, scatter the meadow tiles around her and take turns flipping them over. Feed her the number of times shown on the tile and watch her sudsy wool grow. 

But be careful! If Bubbles is allergic to what she eats, she'll sneeze, blasting her bubbles and you'll lose your tile. If she doesn't sneeze, you get to keep the tile. Earn the most meadow tiles to win.

With Baa Baa Bubbles, the surprise and delight never ends! Perfect for young kids and parents too, everyone will have a blast feeding Bubbles. Add Baa Baa Bubbles to your next family game night.

   It is currently half price on Amazon, £9.99 from £19.99. Which is an amazing saving.

Spooky Halloween Treats With Japan Candy Box & Giveaway

We haven’t had a Japan Candy Box for a while and I forgot how totally amazing they are every time we get one. We received the Halloween special box which was full to the brim with amazing treats. 

Japan Candy Box is a monthly subscription box which works out around £15.70p in GSP. Each candy box includes hard to find seasonal and exclusive Japanese candies. Including some favourites like Pocky and Kitkat. Everyone knows Japan is the king of the different flavoured Kitkats.

So inside this months box we got a selection of 10 treats. We got a selection of a few cornpuffs/sticks in this one. The artwork on Japanese sweets and snacks is amazing and we absolutely loved the Halloween art in this months Box. 

First of all was the Pok√©mon Halloween chocolate party snack. These was chocolate coated puff snack in the shape of Pikachu. 

Tohato caramel corn puffs. These spooky witch corn puffs in caramel flavour was amazing and literary just melt in your mouth. These was my second favourite-thing inside this months box. 

Umaibo snack stick. A savoury corn stick with the flavour of creamy corn and potage soup. 

Koala march Halloween biscuits. Cute Halloween themed biscuits with a hard biscuit shell and yummy chocolate inside. I think these was the winner with both kids they absolutely loved these and they was the first to go.

Terrible Ghost story gum. This is the most scariest chewing gum I have ever seen. Keep the included talisman with you to warn off evil spirits.

Toppo chocolate filled biscuit sticks. Crispy on the outside with smooth chocolate on this inside. 

Shimi Halloween choc corn stars. Chocolate corn puffs shaped in cute little stars. 

Monstro Frankstein Gum. Soft chewing gum with the flavours of refreshing soda and cola. Be careful as your tongue changes colour too. 

Black Thunder chocolate bar. Rice puffs covered in chocolate make the perfect crunchy snack. 

Tohato Bokun Habanero Chips. So the kids hated these, too spicy for them. I absolutely loved these Habanero flavoured little ring chips. My favourite thing out the box and I didn’t have to share... 

As usual we loved the Japan Candy Box, we absolutely love to taste test things that we can’t get in the Uk.
