It seems like I’m on an Asian snack subscription kick lately and I most certainly welcome it! The company Oishiibox box contacted me to review their snack subscription service. This is a new company that is actually based in San Diego county! What makes this monthly service different from others I have tried in the past is that they offer a variety of Asian snacks from Japan, Korea, China and more.
The subscription costs $12 a month including shipping which is a very good deal considering the large variety of snacks you get to taste test. You can check out their website at www.oishiibox.biz The company is offering to send two of my YouTube subscribers a chance to win an Oishiibox! Watch the video review at the end of this blog post for details. This contest is only available to residents of the USA.
Let’s see what’s inside this bad boy!
Check out my video review below to see how I rated each of these Asian snacks!

The next review in my Japanese candy adventure is Takoyaki candy by Meiji. This is a candy version of the popular Japanese street food. Takoyaki is a ball-shaped dumpling made with octopus, green onions, and ginger. A Takoyaki sauce, similar to worcestershire, and mayonnaise is drizzled over the top and finally sprinkled with bonito flakes.
I have to admit, this did scare me a little to taste this. Past experience has proven that these little DIY Japanese candy kits are barely passable as edible. When I took a bite out of this, I was pleasantly surprised! This tasted like a soft peach flavored Jello! The interior gummy was firm and grape flavored which contrasted nicely with the soft gelatin exterior. The caramel sauce on the outside had a nice, slightly smokey flavor. The sprinkles were probably my least favorite part, but not terrible. The sprinkles were more airy and chalky in texture than what you typically experience from candy sprinkles. All in all, I definitely give this two thumbs up! A Japanese candy kit that is both fun to make AND fun to eat?! That definitely deserves high marks!
If you are interested in purchasing this candy, I received this kit from Oyatsu Cafe. www.oyatsucafe.com This was something that I picked out from their website to give my honest review. You can also check out my video review on Youtube below!
I hope you enjoyed my Japanese candy review and I will be back with much more! 🙂
