This will be my third review of the Japanese snack box Freedom Japanese Market, and I always say that after 3 reviews you get a really good sense of what a subscription box is all about. So far I have discovered that Japanese Freedom Market always comes packed to the brim, and they always include a cute little origami. I don’t always eat the items in this box, but J & A are more than happy to taste test for me.
If you aren’t familiar with Freedom Japanese Market it is a monthly subscription that sends about a pound of unique Japanese candies and snacks sent straight to your front door! All candy and Japanese snacks are selected, assembled, and shipped by the team at Freedom Online Japanese Market. They love Japanese snacks as much as you do!

Thoughts: For a Japanese Snack subscription box this one is done well. It is reasonably priced, ships for free, and it comes packed full of fun snacks. The origami of the month is a nice little touch, and I like that it is run by a family (they have their photo on the product sheet and it is really cute). The snacks from this month’s box will be going to J & A, and they will definitely get a kick out of them. I sit back and watch the two of them try everything, an if there happens to be leftovers (not very likely) they will go to work with J the next day. This is a good one to check out if you are in the market for Japanese snacks.
