My final 3 month’s subscription box arrived the first week of March, I swear the boxes have been getting better and better each month! Thank you to my sister for this brilliant Christmas gift. it’s a great present idea for any foodies in your life, as is also affordable at £44 for a 3 months mini Pop Culture snack boxes and £15 per box if you don’t fancy signing up for the subscription.
I’m kicking off with the Kamedaseika Thin Salad Rice Crackers – Salted rice crackers with a nice crunchy bite to them, the texture is light and tasty with green tea.
Sokan Karashi Mustard Lotus Root Crisps – if you love mustard this is the crisp for you, you are hit with an intense flavour of mustard which is followed by a salty after taste. Personally it wasn’t my cup of tea as I found the mustard flavour rather overpowering and quite spicy [I’m not great with spice].
The unknown product name – a sweet crispy outer layer with a peanut filling, delicious – very addictive its a shame there were only a few but the packaging is so cute, you get to see 3 different characters on each face of the triangular packet.
Yuraku Black Thunder Chocolate Cookie – a delicious crunchy chocolate biscuit that compliments a cup of tea as an afternoon snack, reminds me of a classic bourbon biscuit.
Lotte Fit’s Mixed Grape Chewing Gum – a strong artificial grape scent and taste, personally this isn’t the grape for me however I do like the sweet taste and was able to successfully blow bubbles. I can see the fun element of it but personally its not something I’d gravitate to however I am glad I tried it.
Kabaya Pureral Lemon Flavoured Gummy Candy – I love how its a resealable package, another artificial flavour and scent but I love how it is sweet and sour which left me wanting more.
Marusanal Uji Matcha Premium Soy Milk Drink – I love a straw that can extend and this one does just that, I wasn’t sure about the soy milk as its not my favourite milk however I was surprised at how creamy and rich the flavour was and how much it complimented the Matcha flavour. This is definitely a drink I’d look out for in the shops!
I hope you have enjoyed my honest opinion on my 3 months mini subscription from the Japan Centre. These mini boxes are great to find out what Japanese snacks are available on the market and just to try some unusual snacks! I think my favourite snack of March has to be the Matcha Soy drink – rich and creamy with a balanced Matcha flavour, but I guess I’m a bit biased as I love anything Matcha as more often than not I find myself choosing the Matcha flavoured foods. I highly recommend trying a pop culture snack box from the Japan Centre!

I love trying snacks from different countries and Japan always seems to have some greta funky stuff.
this looks like a great box to receive in the post.
This subscription box sounds amazing! Japanese snacks are so famous and I love the idea of trying flavours which we are not really familiar with which still taste amazing! Very interesting.
What an interesting selection of products! I’d love to try the lemon sweets myself I think!
Oh I love these little subscription boxes and especially ones like this from other countries. I think it’s always exciting to try out snacks we wouldn’t necessarily have in our super markets!
These look interesting, I have never tried Japanese food before
