TokyoTreat January 2018 – Final Thoughts

Loved the New Years theme and all the funky candy I’ve never seen before!  There were so many items I have yet to experience here.  I also always appreciate the inclusion of a drink, and the coke looks so tasty!  Every time I get this box I want to throw a themed party so that my friends can enjoy this box alongside me.  Who am I kidding though, I will probably binge this whole box while I binge Netflix later!  There is some serious snacking about to happen here and for the cost of this box I can justify eating it all at once!  TokyoTreat always does such a great job of curating their boxes.  The box itself is so creative and I usually over photograph it, because it’s just way too awesome.  That’s just the box though, the contents are even better and I’m overly impressed with the items in this box, it’s the perfect mix of salty and sweet.  Enough reviewing…….time for snacking…….
