TokyoTreat Review April 2017 – Final Thoughts

What a fun box!! TokyoTreat did an amazing job this month. The snacks I look forward to the most are the limited edition versions of familiar favorites, and they included a few of those. The Sakura Coca Cola is pretty darn fun. The bottle is freakin’ cute and it’s something I am familiar with. I also love the Pocky (no Japanese snack box is complete without it) and the Ghana Milk Chocolate. I love that we received a really great mixture of salty, sweet and crunchy. There’s also a few novelty snacks which give the box an element of fun. This month’s box was a hit with me……..what do you think of the April TokyoTreat box?
