Besides being hooked on to Kbeauty, Jbeauty I have also been recently hooked onto subscription boxes. This post was suppose to be up long ago but I kept forgetting about it. This is the second subscription box from Japancrate. If you would like to check out the first subscription box that I subscribed to and the details of how to subscribe to Japan Crate, please check out this link: Japan Crate Subscription Box (October 2016)

Details of the product:
Most of the product details are retrieved from the manga that is available with each crate.
Saku Saku Panda Cookies Pack
These cookies are made of a combination of white choco, milk choco and crunchy biscuit and they look cute too.
Chew-ing Straw Green Apple Flavor
This sour candies are a popular favorite and this flavor is green apple. It was quite good actually.
Sportsbu offers potassium, sodium, and citric acid in a chewy candy.
Big Thunder III
Black Thunder has been a popular chocolate in Japan for the past 20 years. They have different variations out in the market and this is the III version which looks like a waffle because there is a coating of milk chocolate over a crispy cookie
Fruit Sour Gummy
Another sour gummy to hit the Japan crate box this month but I really adore this one! It is a strawberry flavor gummy and coated with a sour candy on top. It gives the balance of sweet and sour which is the reason why this gummy is so popular in the Japan Crate.
House Tongari Cone Assari Shio Flavor
Cone shaped chips which comes slightly salted in an Assari Shio flavor.
Waku Waku Zoo Animal DIY
Combining yummy soft candy and lollipops, you will be able to create cute animal shaped lollipops with 2 different flavors: lemon and strawberry.
Brazilian Orange Pocky
This flavor was as part of a promotion for the 2016 Rio Olympics. This flavor is creamy white chocolate with the flavor of Orange. I have yet to try this flavor but I am still a bit skeptical about whether the sour of the orange can balance the white chocolate.
Umai Sugar Rusk
Rusk originally came from Europe before they came to Japan. Twice baked baguettes coated in sugar and butter became very popular with tea. The company that did this: Umaibo created their own version using corn puffs but the version is super addicting. This really goes very well with tea.
Funwashi Choco Monaku
This looks fun when I first saw the packaging. Airy chocolate encased in a wafer shell offers a nice crunch with a smooth finish.
