Exploring Japan with TokyoTreat: January Premium Box

February 19, 2020 4 min read

Whenever I am not traveling, I am thinking of travel, which is why I am a big fan of subscription boxes.

There are plenty of subscription boxes to satisfy your wanderlust, such as TokyoTreat. These wonderful subscription boxes can take you on a journey and each snack helps you explore a different country. In my case, I was exploring Japan.

At the end of January, I received the TokyoTreat premium subscription box. For those who have never heard of TokyoTreat, they are a Japanese subscription snack box company that offers two types of subscription boxes.

Each subscription box comes with different kinds of Japanese treats. The premium box comes with 17 treats, while the classic box comes with 12.


While the classic is cheaper than the premium box, the premium offers much more than the classic. Below, I outline all the treats I received as well as my thoughts on each one. If you’d rather watch it on YouTube check out the video, otherwise keep on reading.

TokyoTreat: January Premium Box

When I first opened the box, I wasn’t aware it was going to be Winter themed, yet here I was opening the guide with the title ‘Cozy Winter’s Night’. Each snack inside had something to do with Winter, whether it was Winter chips or Maple Hotcakes, the theme continued with the snacks.

The snacks


Calibre Winter Potato Chips– one of the first things to catch my eye due to the packaging. Although these have some ‘powder snow’ salting, they tasted like regular chips to me. These are made from Hokkaido potatoes.


Night Sky Star Candy– These Konpeito star snacks tasted like rock candy but in mini bites. Really good to munch on while reading or watching tv.


Colorful Baby’s Marshmallows – I’m not a huge fan of marshmallows because I think they are too sweet, but these were quite tasty! I love that they aren’t too sweet and I enjoyed eating them. It definitely tastes better than the ones made in the US.


Bubbly Rainbow Taiyaki– when I opened the bag it smelled so good and sweet!

Biting into the fish is like biting into a wafer, but the inside is almost like a cool sponge ( like dry ice cream). The taste is not too sweet, there’s a hint of sweetness but not much. Tastes more like a milk treat. It wasn’t my favorite treat since it had a bit of bitterness at the end.

Winter Kakigori Gummies– These were my favorite! These were delicious and fun to eat. It has two flavors strawberry and mango and the flavors were definitely there. I felt like I was eating delicious sweet fruit! These are milky Kakigori gummies.

Choco Cake – it’s like a cookie except it’s spongy on the inside. It’s not completely chocolate, the inside cake is vanilla. Not too sweet, it’s light and fluffy.

Milk Giant Caplico– it’s like biting into a piece of chocolate but has a creamy cool texture. The cone is just a cone but the texture of the chocolate is what makes it kind of an ice cream. It’s a nice airy marshmallow with a creamy milk flavor.

Maple Hotcakes – these hotcakes are not too bad. They taste like mini pancakes with a caramel/maple filling in them.

Dengeki Hunter DIY Kit– Comes with a liquid that is gooey and the candy tastes like Coca Cola but it is strong and kind leaves a spicy taste in mouth. The kit is supposed to resemble an electric eel, which you dice and put the cola sauce over it.

Animal Biscuits – Another one of my favorites. These are a lot like animal cookies, except better. Not only are these cute with English words on them, but they taste amazing! These biscuits taste like milk flavor, which has become one of my favorite flavors for biscuits.

Lipton Sakura Tea – I was so excited to get some tea! I am a tea drinker, so I was happy to receive the Sakura Tea.

Character Cookies – when I first opened the box, I saw a huge Winnie the Pooh bag full of cookies! There were different kinds of bags in this big bad and each had different flavor cookies – I got chocolate chip and banana flavor, which were both great!

Fluffy Softmallow – This marshmallow was absolutely colorful. It also tasted great and have come to terms that I prefer Japanese marshmallows over those from the U.S.

Little Mikan Mints – These are cute Mikan flavored mints. They taste just like the orange tic-tacs to me, but absolutely love how mini these are!

Cheese Umaibo – I love these! I’ve had cheese Umaibo before and I just love how good they are. These are kind of like cheese puffs, except these are way better and flavorful.

Key Ring Chocolates – These taste a lot like M&Ms. just regular chocolate in a key packaging.

Diamond Ring Candy – This ring is Cola flavored, which is quite unique. I’ve had ring candies before, but never this flavor. I’m not much of a Cola fan, but this is quite tasty.

The January Premium box was quite fun and I loved the Winter theme of the contents. Tasting all the delicious snacks in TokyoTreat really took me to Japan.

It also helped to have the guide that taught me about all the different snacks within the box, it taught me some Japanese and showed me some of the temples in Japan.

    That’s a decent amount of snack food from one box. How long did it take you to demolish that? I remember my daughters eating the umaibo a few times in Japan. They also like all the different gummies, but their favourite snack is papico, coffee flavoured ice-cream.

      I want to say it took me about 2-3 weeks and I was sharing it with my husband too. Papico sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try that!
