Japan Crate July 2019- mystery box Review

Japan Crate is a subscription box where you can get Japanese snacks, candy, and drinks shipped straight from Japan to you. The boxes come in 3 sizes Mini(5 items for $10 a month), Original(10 items for $25 a month), and Premium(18 items for $35). This month as you see they are celebrating the 15th anniversary of Katamari Damacy and has an exclusive item inside(you will see it in the Premium Tier).

Mini Tier Level- These are the items you would get for the mini box level(5 items for $12 a month).

Baby Cheese Chips- Made with baby cheese(far left)

These taste similar to Gouda cheese and I love it.

Crushed Orange Gum(left)

It tastes like orange soda, but without the fizz.

Chibikko Orange- tiny orange candies(middle)

These have a nice orange flavor.

Shimitto Chocolate- chocolate covered puffs(far right)

I loved the rich chocolate and the soft puffed rice.

Takoyaki Umaibo- takoyaki flavored corn snack(right)

I liked the spices and the meaty taste I can't wait to try real takoyaki.

Original Tier- You would get these items and Mini tier items if you subscribed to Original Tier(10 items for $25 a month including a DIY kit)

Puchi Melon Pan(far left)

Its more of a cookie then bread, but it tastes nice.

Lemon and White Chocolate Cookies(left)

These taste amazing.

Konpeito- sugar stars(middle)

These are a fairly famous Japanese candy, I seen them mentioned and shown in many anime. These are kind of like mini rock candy and are great.

Do it Yourself Sushi Shop(DIY Kit)-(right)

This is a simple stack gummies to make sushi, they taste nice and are fun to make.

Kanibisu- crab shaped biscuits(far right)

These taste exactly like animal crackers but I love animals crackers so I like these.

Premium Tier- You would get these and all previous tiers if you subscribed to the Premium Tier level(16-18 items including a drink for $35 a month)

Bonus Item- 15th Anniversary lanyard(back far left)

It is a nice design, but I already have a new lanyard.

Kakinotane Tirol-choco- salty or spicy filled chocolates(back left)

The salty one was nice but I couldn't handle the spicy one.

Pringles Sukiyaki(front middle)

I like the meat stew flavor of these chips.

Mayo Tara- dried fish with mayo(front left)

I did not care for this at all, I'm just not a fan of fish.

Nata De Coco Muscat Gummy- white grape gummies(back middle)

These were sweet and soft.

Apple Butter Biscuits(back right)

These were the best apple cookies I ever had.

Peach Mint Kit Kat(front middle)

this was a strange combo, but it still tasted ok.

Lemon Multi-Vitamin Fanta(far right)

It was a nice fizzy lemonade.

Overall Review

This months box was full of interesting goodies as usual. While I didn't care for the dried fish or spicy chocolate everything else was great. If you want to try out great Japan sweets and snacks I fully recommend Japan Crate.
