TokyoTreat Review November 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.

If Asian snacks are your jam look no further!  TokyoTreat impresses us every month!  The sheer amount of items in this box alone are impressive, but every month you will receive new items, favourite regulars and even the odd bonus item.  The box size also changes each month, which always impresses me for some reason.  Maybe it’s because it’s a way to see that TokyoTreat caters to its snacks every month.

Let’s take a look at the November box….

Calbee Osatsu Snack

A seasonal snack from Calbee, Osatsu fully uses a mix of steamed and baked Anno sweet potatoes for the delicious flavour.  Osatsu snack is only available during the cold seasons every year and it just celebrated it’s 35th anniversary last year!

DIY Pokemon Sun and Moon Soft Candy Kit

Make your own Pokemon Soft Candies with this easy DIY kit.  Celebrating the release of the new Pokemon Sun and moon, the fun kit comes with new character molds & tasty new flavours.

Squid Crackers

Try these tasty squid crackers for a taste of the sea.  These savoury crackers are fried to perfection to make the perfect snack – whether as a midday or night time snack.

Pretz Mid Roast flavour

This month we brig you Pretz Mild Roast, a subtly sweet biscuit snack with extra calcium added to it.  The Pretz Mild series uses no artificial colouring nor scent to the snack making it a healthy snack alternative.

Kirin Chocolate Mint Milk tea

Take ten with this relaxing and refreshing chocolate mint milk tea from the popular Afternoon Tea franchise.  This minty drink is perfect as an afternoon drink with your favourite biscuit or as a dessert.

Super Light Rice Crackers

this month’s wagashi uses famed Niigata white rice for a super light and airy textured rice cracker that literally melts in your mouth.  The tasty crackers get their flavour from mixture of dashi soy sauce and ginger for zesty twist.

Choco Flakes Crisp Balls – Kinako

Choco Flakes is a cereal snack that’s coated in milk chocolate.  Their crisp balls series is a less messy ball shaped variety and the Autumn edition comes in a kinako (roasted soy flour) flavour which adds a layer of nuttiness to the already tasty snack.

Pocky Double Fromage

A decadent Pocky that has 3.2x more chocolate than the standard kind, these have layers of whipped and milk chocolate for the perfect texture.  This time in a “formage” flavour that uses cocoa biscuits and different types of cheese for an elegant twist.

TokyoTreat November 2017 – Final Thoughts

Yup, exceeded expectations again.  This box is just so packed!  Every time I review it I wonder how I will get all of the items back inside the box, and somehow they all fit.  I’m a savoury snacker for sure, and I loved the amount of savoury items provided in this month’s box.  There were a few items I may not venture to try, such as the squid item, but to each their own!  If you aren’t a subscriber to TokyoTreat you are also missing out on the chance to be entered into a lot of great draws!  Each subscriber is given a little product guide that also offers the chance to be entered into Fantasy Contests and Lucky Treat Packages!  TokyoTreat really knows how to take care of their people.
