We know you can’t get enough of Japanese KitKats so this month we bring you the very special Sakura Kinako (cherry blossom & roasted soy flavour) variety that’s only sold in shareable snack bag size. How do these uniquely Japanese spring flavoured KitKat compare to the others you’ve tried?
TokyoTreat Review June 2017 – Final Thoughts
I can’t get over how much fun this box is to receive. TokyoTreat really does a great job when it comes to curation. They pack the box full every month, and they include a nice mixture of old favourites and new discoveries. This month I am most excited about the KitKats, the Chip Star, the Spicy Peanuts and the Tropicana. This box is always a hit with us and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
