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.

A Halloween themed snack box?! Now this gets me excited. I saw a spoiler for the October TokyoTreat box and I was pretty darn excited to see that they were going with a Halloween theme. In my opinion, every subscription box should include Halloween goodies in their boxes this time of year.

TokyoTreat Review October 2017 – Final Thoughts

TokyoTreat did a great job with this month’s box. I’m impressed by the number of Halloween goodies they included. I’ve received a couple other boxes this month that claimed to have a Halloween theme but really only included one festive goodie in the box. I say, go big or go home. If you are going to do a Halloween theme…….then DO a Halloween theme. Take advantage of the holiday and do it up right. That’s exactly what TokyoTreat did this month and I couldn’t be happier.
