NatureBox Shop Order November 2017

Another NatureBox blog, whoo! I love NatureBox snacks so much, they’re so good! I made another order at the end of October and received the box earlier this month, I’ve just been very busy and haven’t had a chance to make this post until now!


Look at all this good food, and my cat being curious about it!


These were the first two items, two types of fish based food from Fishpeople. I have been DYING to try these since they came out of purchase on NatureBox, and I finally got them! I’ve tried them both, and the one I liked most was the Wild Crab Bisque, which is interesting because I really like Clam Chowder, but this Razor Clam Chowder was kind of meh to me. Both good, but the crab bisque was much better.


I got two more bags of the Mini Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies! I love these deliciously small cookies, they’re so good! I did share some with my youngest sister because she also loves chocolate chip cookies aha.


Two more bags of Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps!! These are my absolute favorite snack from NatureBox, I can’t get enough of them! They’re crispy and cheesy!


This is a new snack for NatureBox, the Sharp Cheddar Cheese Crackers!! These are super good, and surprisingly, they’re soft! They taste just like Cheez-its, but obviously they’re healthier, and I really do like them! I’ll get more in the future!


Next is another new snack, the Thin & Crispy Meyer Lemon Cookies! I love lemon flavored sweets and candies, and these are so good! They’re not too sour and not too sweet, and they’re really nice and crispy cookies! These are a definite second purchase again in the future!


These I did NOT order, actually. I had purchased two single serve bags of the Jalapeno Cashews (which I did eventually get, I just don’t have a picture) and I ended up with these Dark Chocolate Almonds instead. I do love dark chocolate and almonds, but WOW the sea salt in these is WAY too much. They’re good until you get all the salt taste with something that should be more bitter than salty or sweet. I don’t know if I’ll ever actually pay for these, but I don’t mind them for now.


So there’s everything! These are super good snacks I got this time around, and I’m really happy with them! I’m going to include my referral link down here, so if you want to order some good and healthy snacks, don’t hesitate to use my link and get yourself a $20 credit!





November 2017 JapanCrate

Back once again with a JapanCrate!! This crate actually arrived at my house the same day that Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon had released, so, I’ve slowly been playing through Ultra Moon for the last few days while enjoying some tasty snacks!

So let’s go ahead and get started with this months crate, which is full of fall flavors like sweet potato!


OK, I wanted to start with this one because this is several of the snacks that were in the box all small pieces. Starting from the left, we have the Sumomo Ball, which is a gummy half of a baseball, strawberry flavored. It was ok, I’m not a bit fan of the Japanese gummies that come in plastic the way this one did. Usually they have a plastic taste to them

Next is the Marshmallow Pudding, and this was actually good! The center had a bit of Japanese custard in it and the marshmallow itself was very soft!

Third we have the Okusuriya-san Capsule Ramune. These are based on retro Japanese medicine packets, but the candy inside is a fruit flavor, though, I’m not 100% sure what the flavor of mine was, it was good!

Fourth, the Party Gummy which is one of four styles that is designed to look like a baseball park concession stand food. It was ok, just a normal gummy.

Finally for this picture, is the Rilakkuma Gum! This gum has a ramune soda taste and it’s really good!


This snack is the Kagikko Chocolate Key. It’s just simply chocolate that pops out of the package! Its just like American M&Ms and they tasted really good!


Here we have the Sono Manma Cola Gum. While I don’t like the flavor of Cola gummies from Japan, I do like their cola flavored gum! This one was delicious, but there is a catch! One out of the three pieces of gum has a super sour powder in it! I got that the second time I pulled out the package and it was SO SOUR.


This is the Mike Popcorn Brown Sugar Caramel! The August crate also had a bag of this brand of popcorn, and another crate before that one did as well. This is a sweet one and it’s pretty good! Reminds me of caramel corn just without being overly sticky!


This is the DIY kit of this crate, the Magic Foam Jelly kit. I did make this one, and I think I may have added a little too much water, because it DID NOT TASTE GOOD. It was gross ugh. Would not try again.


Here we have the Rapoppo Farm Sweet Potato Candy. These are hard candies with a chewy center and are supposed to mimic the flavor of sweet potatoes. The outside shell is buttery and the inside chewy candy helps bring in the sweet potato flavor!


This one is the Sweet Poteko: Honey Sweet Potato Flavor. It’s a ring shaped snack that tastes just like sweet potato fries!! It’s super good and I really love it!


The drink for this month is the Pokemon Grape Sparkling! It’s basically just grape soda with Pikachu on the front! Super cute!


This is whistle candy, Fue Ramune: Pineapple Flavor! It’s good candy and makes a great whistling sound!


This is the bonus item of the month, and the pamphlet just calls it Taberundesu-hi! It’s a little camera where, when you set it up right, you can push the top to open the front shutter and it will dispense a hard candy! The candy is really tasty and the item itself is cute!


Finally, we have the Harvest Sweet Potato Biscuits. In last year’s December crate, they gave a package of these that were matcha flavor and I loved them, and these are super good too! They taste like sweet potato and have a bit of sugar on the top, and they are just so good!


So there’s the November JapanCrate! The only issue I have is the amount of single, tiny pieces of candy they gave. It seemed a little, I don’t know…cheap to give those? The ice cream gummy I can get over there, and while the others are more Japan exclusive, they weren’t that amazing to me. Might just be my personal preference,Β  but oh well!

See you for next month’s crate!

Birthday 2017 Haul

I had my birthday this past weekend, November 4th, and now I’m 24, OMG!

Apart from that, I got some lovely gifts from my family!


OK I didn’t receive everything here as a gift, bought two of the items pictured myself, but I’ll get to those in a bit.

So, what I received was Big Hero 6 on BluRay/DVD, an Oriental fan, a hamper, Pokemon Activity kit, cross necklace, decorative pillow, and a black, faux fur blanket.

I did also receive a set of FitBit Flex bands, but they were too small for my wrist, so, we have to return them. 😦

Close ups of the gifts from my three sisters. πŸ™‚

The things I purchased for myself were as follows:


Naruto volume 38, which now leaves me 8 volumes away from having the complete series.


A plush Bulbasaur backpack hanger. He was on clearance at GameStop and I love Bulbasaur, I had to get him!!

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle volume 2! No joke, I had no idea if I had this DVD yet, but I bought it anyway. I didn’t have it already, so, all good! πŸ™‚

Lastly, I purchased this AMAZING find from HalfPriceBooks. Fruits Basket Ultimate Edition! This is a HARDCOVER omnibus of the first two volumes of Fruits Basket! And just for reference…

Comparison of the Ultimate Edition with a “normal” Fruits Basket manga (forgive the messy volume 7. I bought it used because Hatori was on it and he’s my favorite character.)

Well that’s everything I got for my birthday this year. πŸ™‚ I’m very happy with everything and grateful for what my family gifted me. ❀
