December 2017 Japan Crate

Time for another Japan Crate review!! I ordered this bow around Thanksgiving, because of a reason I’ll explain later, and finally got it this past Friday! The box is SO CUTE and I’m not just saying that because green is my favorite color. 😉 I like the design on this month’s box, it’s very festive!

So pretty, and look at those snacks!! The pamphlet is very small this month, but that’s ok! it still has everything we’re used to in it, it’s just skinny and one sheet! So, let’s go ahead and get started with the snacks in this box!

For the first few items I pulled out of the box, starting from the left, we’ve got the Christmas Shimichoco Corn! These are corn puff stars with chocolate and omg, I LOVE these things! Japan Crate has given us a bag before and I loved them then, and still love them now. They’re crispy with a great amount of chocolate and just taste great!

The second snack is the Sour Cream and Onion Scones. And no, these aren’t the scones you’re thinking of. They’re more like Cheetos! They tasted pretty good, there was a definite slight sour cream and onion flavor, but obviously it wasn’t as strong as the kind you’d get from say, Pringles. They were really good though! I ate the bag in two days because they were super good lol.

The third item is the DIY kit for this month, and it’s the Minions Furifuri Shake! This looks like a fun little kit to make quickly! It just uses the powder that’s included, milk, and an ice cube! It’s shaken up for 30 seconds and then you have a banana “shake” to drink! I can’t wait to try it!

The next set of snacks taken from the box begins with the Christmas Fugashi. This is a sugar covered wheat puff, and I believe they’ve sent this before as well, and it was a pretty good!

The next two items are both Umaibo snacks! There’s the Christmas Umaibo, which is chocolate, and the Christmas Corn Potage Umaibo, which was a sweet corn flavor. I’ve really loved getting the Umaibo snacks and these are really good.

Third is the Constellation Chocolate, which is a little biscuit covered in chocolate. Each cookie has an imprint of a Zodiac figure on it, and mine has Taurus! It was a really good cookie and the chocolate was delicious as well~

Last for this picture is the Christmas Fueramune. It’s one of the whistle candies and it came in a raumne flavor! Very good for whistling and eating! 😉

This set of snacks starts with the Christmas Black Thunder bar in mini sizes! There were two of these in the box, and omg, I regret never having had a Black Thunder bar before!! These are so good and chocolatey, and the cookie inside added a nice crunch!

Next is the Christmas Chocolate Daifuku! I’ve had this before in different packaging, and while the description in the pamphlet implies this is supposed to be like mochi, it was really just a marshmallow with a bit of chocolate in the middle, but it was still good!

Third is the Tasty Ice Cream Mini Bake Kit Kat bars! Two mini packs, and these taste just like vanilla ice cream! I didn’t try the baking part for the first pack, but maybe I will for the second one!

The next snack is the Butter Cream Roll Cake! This looks like it’s going to be a vanilla cake with butter cream in the middle! I’ve had a strawberry one of these before and it was good, now I get to try a new flavor!

Finally in this set, is the Awadama Red, a dagashi hard candy! This is supposed to be an apple flavored candy, the pamphlet says it it’ll have a “fizzy” taste, so I wonder if this will fizz when I eat it!

This is the last picture of snacks, and it includes our drink for this month!

First is the Tohato Christmas Caramel Corn! I love this stuff so much, the texture is so nice and the flavor is great! It’s not like Western caramel corn at all, but it’s still so good and I love how it tastes!

The drink is Cassis and Orange Orangina! The cassis is black current flavor mixed with the orange flavor, and that honestly sounds super good to me. I can’t wait to give this a taste and see how it is!

Finally, this is the reason for my ordering this crate! For Black Friday, Japan Crate had an offer where if you signed up for a subscription, you would get $5 off your crate and a PokeBall bonus item with a little Pokemon figure in it, based on one of 10 Pokemon from the latest movie (Pikachu is feature twice, counted as two different figures)! I got an Ultra Ball and a tiny little Piplup figure!! I didn’t expect the piece of candy to be in the ball, but that’s cool too! The Piplup is too small, I hope I don’t lost it, and the Ultra Ball is a great display piece itself!

So that’s it for the December Japan Crate! All in all, this was a great crate for the end of the year! Lots of good snacks, new and old, and it all tastes great (from what I’ve eaten so far lol)!

Hopefully, if my monetary situation is looking good after buying textbooks for the spring, I’ll be able to hold onto my Japan Crate subscription for a bit, and continue reviewing it along with having tasty snacks! So stay tuned, and we’ll see what happens! 🙂
