Freedom Japanese Market Review March 2017
Freedom Japanese Market ships hand selected Japanese snacks and candy straight from Japan to your home or office — Free Shipping Worldwide! Each box contains an English content list and a handmade, seasonal origami. They kindly sent us this box for review.
It’s been a little while since we’ve reviewed this box, but previously we have been pretty impressed with it and I’m excited to be reviewing it for a first time myself! There are a lot of Asian food boxes out there, so it’s tough to stand apart. Let’s see what they have given us for our March box.
Roasted Corn Aerial
These light and crispy chips taste like roasted corn, straight off the barbecue.
Baby Star PanMen
A new type of Baby Star ramen chips, flavoured with maple & cinnamon.
Add water to the powder to create your own grape flavoured candy and decorate it with bits of sugar.
A tube of puffled corn flavoured like takoyaki (fried octopus).
Challenge your taste buds with fermented soy beans flavoured umaibo (not for the faint of heart).
Big Bar Choco
An aerated chocolate bar with a hint of salt.
Play rock, paper and scissors with this hand shaped cola flavoured gummy.
A girls’ day treat! These mini marshmallows have a surprise strawberry filling.
Suppai Lemon Gum
One piece of sour lemon gum is the most sour – you’ll have to eat them all to find it.
Puchi Uranai Candy
Your fortune among a variety of life attributes (love, money, work, ect) hides behind each ramune flavoured candy.
Dried fish jerky flavoured like okonomiyaki (Japanese-style pancake).
These sweet rice “thunder crackers” are named for a famous gate in Tokyo, not Thor!
If you love sugar, now you can have it in liquid form!
Freedom Japanese Market March 2017 – Final Thoughts
The March focus for this box is Girl’s Day, which is celebrated on March 13th. The origami piece is in honour of this and you will find either an Emperor or Empress in your box! We found an Empress! I love touches like this as they really set a box apart. It seemed like most of the items provided in this box were candy and I prefer the savoury or spicy myself. I really liked the amount of items provided and that almost all of them were full size! One thing I really like about this is the box itself is put together and operated by a family. They have provided a family photo on the index card! Touches like this can cause a box to go a long way, as it moves from just being a product to being a community working for each other! Can’t wait to expand my squeamish side with the octopus candy!
