TokyoTreat Review February 2018
TokyoTreat is a subscription-based service that delivers the most premium Japanese snacks and candies to your door monthly. From salty, to sour, to sweet, discover limited edition Japanese treats that you won’t find anywhere else! They kindly sent us this box for review. This is a look at the Premium Subscription.
I am always so impressed with my TokyoTreat boxes. They are always packed full, organized beautifully, and contain a variety of unique snacks. This really is a fun box to open because you never know what kind of treats are going to be tucked inside. This month it looks like we have a bit of a Valentine’s theme going on and that makes me very happy.
It appears as though TokyoTreat has changed their subscription offering. They now have 2 box sizes to choose from as opposed to three:
Classic Box ($25) – 12 full-size snack items
Premium Box ($35) – 17 full-size snack items including 1 Japanese drink
Here’s a closer look at the snacks we received in the Premium February box…..
Strawberry Shortcake Pepsi
This month you will find a seasonal, exclusive strawberry shortcake flavored Japanese Pepsi in your Japanese snack box! This flavor debuted during the holiday season and drove Japan wild with its unique flavor! The sweet & sour strawberry flavor fused with the smooth cake icing taste makes for a drink that feels like a real cake was stuffed inside the bottle. Which of your loved ones will you share this lovely drink with?

Umaibo – Shrimp Mayonnaise
When we think of Valentine’s Day, one of the more elegant foods that one can treat their significant other to that comes to mind is shrimp.

This flavor is incredibly popular among Japanese people for its rich flavor that replicates a real shrimp mayonnaise dish incredibly well! Who will you share your Umaibo with?

Go on an ice cream date at home with this ice cream lolly! This cute lollipop Japanese candy is made to taste like a double scoop of ice cream – one vanilla scoop and the other strawberry.

TokyoTreat Review February 2018 – Final Thoughts
Oh my goodness! Are you loving this month’s TokyoTreat box as much as I am? Maybe it’s because I’m still feeling the effects of yesterday’s holiday, or maybe it because I’m a sucker for holiday-themed boxes, or maybe it’s the fact that I LOVE strawberry flavoured treats. Whatever the reason, I am definitely feeling the February TokyoTreat box. I am most excited about Maroyaka Milk Chocolate, the Strawberry Barley Puffs, the Ginza Rusk and the Lotte Pie No Mi. Actually, I think this just might be one of my Favorite TokyoTreat boxes thus far. There’s just something about strawberry chocolate treats that puts a smile on my face.
