Freedom Japanese Market Review May 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.

We’ve really gotten to know Freedom Japanese Market over the last month and we have fallen in love with this subscription. It’s a family owned business that was started as a way to fill the need of many of their friends who had moved away from Japan and were depressed they could not find quality Japanese snacks in their own country.

Everyone is involved. Ken (Dad) is the box packer, Sanae (Mom) is the product coordinator, and Juliet & Kevin (the kids) are the official taste testers. We just love this!!!

Here’s a closer look at the May box:

Freedom Japanese Market Review May 2017 – Final Thoughts

If you have been looking for a Japanese Snack Box this just might be the one for you. Japanese Freedom Market is full of authentic Japanese snacks that come straight from suppliers. This means the snacks are fresh which is one of the characteristics that sets Freedom Japanese Market apart from the others. You can tell that a lot of time and effort goes in to each box. They even take extra time to pack their boxes so as to utilize the space and eliminate the need for filler such as tissue paper. Every month we receive a fun mixture of snacks and are always introduced to something new.
