They kindly sent us this box for review.

What are the different themes you can choose from?  Thought you’d never ask!

KAWAII & BEAUTY – A girly themed box containing Kawaii packaged snacks and healthy snacks!

NEW & LIMITED – If you are a Japanese snack connoisseur and want to keep up with the latest trends, this one’s for you!

DAGASHI – Mini-sized snack box with a lot of treats from a bygone era.

We have received the “New and Limited” box this month!  Full of snacks you won’t be able to find anywhere outside of Japan get ready for your tastebuds to experience new and exciting flavours!

At first glance I was impressed with the amount and variety of items in the box.  However, and this is a huge however, there is no card in the box telling me what I received!?  Thankfully they list all items and their ingredients on their website!  That’s good, cause I can’t read any of these packets!

WOWBOX February 2017 Final Thoughts

I was pretty impressed with this box.  I liked the variety of items and the size of them.  I haven’t received items quite like this in my other Japanese themed snack boxes.  I like that a drink was provided, as well as chips and chocolate!  Sometimes you just want the staples in your snack drawer.  I also like that WOWBOX has a variety of themes you can select from.  Wasn’t a fan of the box you received?  Try a different theme!
