Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I posted, but, today, I have the June 2017 Japan Crate! 🙂 I won’t be getting the July one, but I will have the July Umai Crate (by accident….I thought I canceled it. :I) And I’m totally doing this one differently today: I have tasted all but three of the items in this crate, and one of my sisters helped me out as well! 😀 So let’s go ahead and get started! :3

This month’s theme is Childhood Favorites, and, honestly, I’ve only ever had one of these snacks before, and that was in a past Japan Crate!

The first item is the Ice Stick Lollipop. These lollipops are supposed to look like ice pops, and it looks like it’ll be a tasty little treat! I didn’t try this one since there’s only one piece, but I do hope it tastes good!

The second snack is the Mochi Taro: Salt. In the May crate we had a snack kind of like this, and I really did enjoy it. This one I also enjoyed! It had a light salt taste and it was pretty good! My sister thought it was ok when she tried it.

These are the Triangular Cracker Vegetable. They’re vegetable flavored crackers, but, honestly? There was so flavor to these when I tried them, and my sister agreed. I really wish I had been able to taste the flavor, whatever it was supposed to be, but there was just nothing.

This one is the Soft Soda Soft Candy. The booklet describes them as being jellybean like, but I compare the texture more to being like chewing gum! I really like the ramune flavor, and it had a slight sour kick at the end. My sister didn’t really seem to enjoy the sour kick, but seemed fine with it otherwise.

The fifth snack is the Anpanman Soft Cracker. This bag is HUGE and I was so surprised when I opened it to find that the crackers were individually wrapped in packs of two! That means I can easily put them in my lunchbox and take them to work with me! My sister didn’t want to try these, so I tried them by myself, and I really liked them! They were crunchy and had a salty, kind of buttery taste to them!

This is the Roll Candy Strawberry 20G. Basically, it’s a Japanese Fruit Roll-Up! I tired this one by myself again, and it was pretty good! I haven’t had a Fruit Roll-Up in years, so, I can’t compare this one to the American version, but I do think this one is very good, it has a really good strawberry flavor to it, and it is sticky, but, that’s expected.

This snack is simply called Pike8. I was a bit confused about which on this was according to the booklet, because this package doesn’t match what’s in the booklet. Either way, it’s another rice cracker and this one is supposed to have a buttery and salty taste. It’s a very crunchy cracker and not bad tasting, but it does take a bit to get the butter flavor. I enjoyed it and my sister thought it was ok.

This is a snack I’ve had before, the Corn Potage. It’s a corn soup flavored puff snack, and I really do enjoy this snack! It has a sweet corn flavor, and I love that. My sister got the flavor as well, but she didn’t like it that much.

These are the Rilakkuma pretzel sticks. It’s basically Pocky without the cream on the outside, and they aren’t bad! They come in a honey butter flavor, and I personally really enjoy that flavor combination! I liked these a lot, and my sister thought they were all right.

This is the DIY kit for this month, Shin-chan Puripuri Pudding #5. This is the fifth edition of this DIY kit, where you follow the directions to make pudding. I haven’t done this kit yet, and I don’t know if I’ll make a separate post about it or not, I’m undecided. I don’t think I’ll be using the butt shaped mold, personally. :I

Genji Pie!! I’ve been dying to try these for months! These are in a mini form, and they’re heart shaped, baked cookies that are just like a flaky pie crust! They have a delicious buttery sweet taste, and remind me of pecan pie crust! I absolutely love these!

IMG_20170616_123736

This snack has a strange name! In the booklet, it’s called Lactic Acid Bacteria is Alive! It’s a hard candy that is strawberry yogurt flavored, and it has live lactic acid bacteria in it, which is a probiotic. My sister and I tried these and at first, I thought they were gummy candy! It’s not bad, and I do like the flavor, and I think my sister liked it to an extent as well.

IMG_20170616_123943

Here is the drink for this month, Pudding Shake! This is going to be a strange one to try, I think. It seems like it’s a creamy drink with bits of pudding in it, and it’s being compared to boba drinks. I personally really like boba, so I do hope this tastes good when I drink it, but I am a bit scared lol.

IMG_20170616_123903

Finally, we have the Choco Anpan! These are little breads that have chocolate in the middle! I’ve wanted to try these for a long time, and finally I got to! However, I thought they were just ok. The chocolate was good, but my sister and I agree that there was too much bread, and not enough chocolate in the middle.

The bonus item this month is a moldable sushi piece. It comes with a plastic piece of raw fish, and this semi-wet material that you can mold to be like the rice of the sushi. It’s interesting and I have mine together in the bag it came in, just so the material doesn’t dry out.

So that’s the June 2017 Japan Crate! I’m actually super happy with this crate and everything that came in it, and I think it was a very strong in the snacks that they sent us!

I’ll see you guys again next month for the July Umai Crate! 🙂

Umai wa Vegetable Salad Flavor

***This is not a sponsored post. It is being done for fun and to inform, no other reasons are involved. The company that makes this product has no idea I exist and did not give this item to me for free.***

The next snack from the December JapanCrate is this interesting ring shaped snack from Umaibo. If you don’t know what Umaibo is, it’s basically a tube shaped corn stick that comes in a variety of flavors. I’ve had two snacks from them, but that’s it. This one, actually, is the third, and the flavor was interesting!

This is supposed to be the flavor of a garden salad with dressing on it. Now I personally love salad, it’s always a wonderful lunch or dinner, and I do need a good bit of dressing on it when I eat one, but sometimes just enough to have a taste of it. These little rings are very tasty. I opened them and I was a bit concerned, but when I tasted it, I fell in love! I’m not sure how to describe the taste, but it was bit like a salad dressing, I just can’t think of which one when I eat them. They were delicious, and I’m so sad that my bag is gone, lol!

This bag was full sized as well, so, it was pretty big! I do know that, based on the JapanCrate Instagram, there will be another bag of ring shaped snacks from Umaibo in the January crate, but the flavor will be Mentai, which looks like it’s supposed to be a caviar flavor. That’s going to be interesting…

Baked in Brooklyn Flat Bread Crisps — Tasty crisps!

I found these at Dollar Tree and thought they looked really good, so, I grabbed a bag! Sorry it’s already open in the picture, I couldn’t resist when I got home with them!

Anyway, these are really good crisps! They’re crunchy and taste kind of like an everything bagel! You could some cream cheese on it and it would probably be like having an actual bagel, in regards to flavor at least. The texture is crunchy, of course, so that would be the only difference between the actual bagel and these crisps. I really like these and want to get another bag when I go to Dollar Tree, if they’ve still got them!!

Upcoming Items – Late Easter stuff!

So, yeah, Easter is tomorrow! Easter is my second favorite holiday, right after Christmas, and I love getting to spend the morning at church and the day with my family.

This year, I have a few items will be posted throughout the week, and most of it came from Dollar Tree, ha!

WP_20150402_002

OK, so, there’s more than just Easter candy, and yes, all of these items will be reviewed on here.

What’s in the picture: a bag of rice crackers, kettle chips, flatbread crips, Pringles, Slim Jim, Jack Daniels meat sticks, crunchy roasted corn, a pack of chocolate chip cookies, hazelnut spread, Horizon Organic Chocolate Milk, Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk, Havana canned coffee, birthday cake M&Ms, peanut butter M&Ms, two packs of Lindor chocolates (caramel and dark chocolate), Lindor caramel bar, Jelly Belly jelly bean Kids’ Mix, dessert Skittles, a Palmer chocolate double crisp chocolate bunny, Palmer chocolate eggs, Palmer chocolate peanut butter eggs, and various pieces of chocolate.

That’s everything so far. I will be doing these posts (and whatever I may get tomorrow) this week. I also have a surprise flavor of M&Ms that will be in a post with the two flavors I listed above, but that one is a secret~

Zapp’s Voodoo Kettle Chips

Imagine how surprised I was to see kettle chips int he vending machine at school one day. I never see those in a vending a machine, and I don’t think I have ever seen this brand before in my life. So, I did a quick search on my smart phone and decided to buy the bag to try it out.

When I opened it, I try to see if I could determine the flavor by smell. I couldn’t, so, I started eating them and was reminded highly of the salt and vinegar flavored chips I used to love so much. I could taste something else, but I wasn’t sure what it was. I really did like these, even if the name is rather weird for a chip flavor.
