At Japan Food Style, we love Japanese snacks!
Today, We received a package from TokyoTreat, a famous Japanese subscription-based service that delivers you a box full of unique and fun Japanese candies and snacks every month. Each box has a hand-picked collection of Japanese snacks.
With the mission slogan “We don’t want to just share the coolest and craziest Japanese snacks and candy every month -we want to give you a taste of modern life in Japan!“, the company based in Tokyo Japan, has been launched in 2015 by Tokyo native Ayumi. It has some interesting brand sisters, like Sacurako for Japanese snack & candy boxes, yumeTwins for Japanese Kawaii boxes, and nmnl for beauty boxes from Japan and Korea.
The April 2023 box we received was about sakura picnic party, since cherry blossoms are blooming all over Japan in this period.
Tokyo Treat Japanese Snack Box Review (April Box)
Fist of all, the delivery was fast, 5 days express delivery as stated in the company website.
The package has attractive colors and design and it’s relatively big compared to other monthly snacks boxes from other companies
The box contains 15 different Japanese snacks (all Vegetarian Friendly unless two crackers snacks with shrimp flavor) , with one detailed snack guide, and one postal card.
The Snack Guide:
A very well designed manual that contains an introduction about cherry blossom arrival season and Hanami, a Japanese tradition of welcoming spring with bento boxes that are shared under the cherry blossoms. The guide also contains all the informations about the snacks; allergens and more.
It’s the first item you find once you open the box.
All snacks are mentioned on Tokyotreat website, even before the shipping of the box each month. Existing and new customers can know exactly what the upcoming box will contain.
Now, let’s discover the box components:
