TokyoTreat Review March 2017
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.
We have to apologize for the delay in the review of the March TokyoTreat. We aren’t sure if something happened during shipping, but this just made it into our hands.
I feel like a broken record when I say this, but it’s aways worth saying. The experience of a subscription box starts with the box itself and I love the experience TokyoTreat gives right out of the gate! Wow, what a fun looking box. The art and graphics are really detailed and I spent a long time admiring just the box, let alone all the goodies in side.
And look at all those goodies! The Asian food boxes are pretty fun to unbox, as they are so colourful and in your face loud that you can’t help but admire each item. Let’s take a look to see what is in the March box.

TokyoTreat March 2017 – Final Thoughts
Phew! Wow! What a box! There is so much packed away in this I just can’t believe it. I am so impressed with the spring and Doll’s Day theme carried out through almost every item. It seemed if it was cherry, cherry blossom it was green tea. I really loved the consistency in all the items. It just goes to show you that so much thought and care goes into this box each month. That’s what I really love to see. Even if you aren’t excited about the items you can get excited about them when you see the effort and passion placed into picking your items and assembling a box. Asian treats aren’t my go to, but I can honestly say I would try every single item in this box. The green tea treats sound delicious and I really liked the sound of most everything else. I don’t understand how anyone wouldn’t feel impressed after going through that list of goodies.
