TokyoTreat August 2017 – Final Thoughts

It’s official, this box keeps getting bigger.  PHew!  What a review!  So many amazing treats in this month’s box.  I really loved how many treats were provided for perfect summer enjoyment.  We always appreciate an on-season box.  There seemed to be a lot of savoury snacks this month, which are perfect for the beach.  If you are looking for a consistent Asian treat box, look no further.  TokyoTreat is about as consistent and awesome as it gets!  I don’ think there has been a single box that has underwhelmed us.  If anything I’m overwhelmed every month over the amount of items provided!
