WATCH AND SEE WHAT I GOT:

Upon opening the box, you would find the info card

Front Info Card

At the back of the info card lists all the products for the month. Having this really helps you understand what you are getting since all info and instructions in the packaging are written in Japanese.

The sheet is sealed with a crane origami sticker. This applies to all boxes. 
WHAT'S INSIDE THE BOX:

1.  COLA WHISTLING TOY + TOY  (SRP $3) 

     ( コリスコーラフエラムネ)


I remember buying a lot of this type of candy when I was a kid.  When you blow through the hole it produces a whistle sound. My son had fun blowing on it that I had to stop him cause the constant whistling sound just gave me a headache.  The candy was cola flavored. I like it but would not definitely buy it at this time.  Oh and before I forget this candy came with a surprise toy.


2.  TOPPO BISCUIT STICKS WITH MATCHA FILLING (SRP $4)
     (抹茶トッポ)


 

Not one of my fave of the whole lot. This would take the bottom place.  The biscuit stick was fine and the match filling as well but if you combine them there is something wrong with it.  I think this two are just not meant to be with each other.  This kind of biscuit stick has a salty taste to it if you bought it in its original form but having a filling that is made out of green tea would make it disgusting. I don't think salt and tea should be mixed together.

3.  PUCHIKUMA LAND (SRP $5)
     (プチクマランド)

This are cookies with a chocolate bear face. My kids loved this.  The chocolate was not too sweet but it was creamy.  The cookies are crunchy and has a buttery taste.  Would definitely buy more of this.

4.  KISSMINT MUSCAT GRAPE (SRP $4)
     (グリコキスミントガム)


This gum is in White Grape Flavor.  Best chewed after eating a very oily meal.  The flavor and texture of this gum would  mask away the greasiness of the food you've just eaten.  It has a somewhat sour taste but slowly transforms into a sweet taste.  The flavor last for quite awhile.

5.  PUREAL STRAWBERRY GUMMY (SRP $3)
     (ピュアラル苺グミ)
 
 

This are gummies in strawberry flavor.  Nothing to extraordinary about this. It just tasted like any other ordinary strawberry gummies out there.  This has a soft center.

5.  PICOLA STICKS (SRP $3)
     (ピコラクレームブリュレ)

I would say this one is our fave.  The sticks were so crunchy and sweet.  The filling was delectable.  The flavor was in Creme Brûlée Pudding.  My son can't stop munching on this one.  Once you start you won't be able to stop.  Would definitely buying more of this.  This reminds us of the Philippine version which is the Stick-O which is just a little bit bigger than this one.

6.  SUPER COLA GUM (SRP $3)
     (スーパコーラガム)

When I and my daughter chewed on this our face suddenly crunched up.  It was because it was sooooo sour and it just began to fizz in our mouth.  The flavor was all over the place.. But after a few minutes it starts to become sweet.  The gum was chewy and flavorful.  We had fun chewing on it.

7.  DIY KIT:  TONTON UNDOUKAI  (SRP $4)
     (トントンうんどう会)

Japan are famous of making DIY candies and having this in our March box gives us so much delight. We can't wait to do this. I would be making a separate Blog for this DIY kit.

NOW I STILL HAVE ONE LAST ITEM SINCE I ADDED AN ADDITIONAL $2 TO UPGRADE MY BOX FOR AN ACCESSORY ITEM TO BE INCLUDED

8.  PENGUIN CORRECTION TAPE
     (ペンギン修正テープ)

For this month's box the accessory item is a Penguin White Out Correction Tape.  Having this is very handy. No one's perfect so having some mistakes is no big deal you can just always erase it with this tape and start all over again.

VERDICT: WE LOVE LOVE LOVE THE DEKABOX FROM SKOSHBOX.  THIS IS OUR VERY FIRST BOX AND WE ARE AMAZED WITH IT.  EXPLORING JAPANESE SNACKS IS ONE THING THAT I AND MY KIDS WOULD LOVE TO DO.  WE FIND JAPANESE PRODUCTS CUTE AND AMAZING.  SO HAVING THIS BOX SATISFIES THE CRAVE WE HAVE TO TASTE AND FEEL JAPANESE SNACKS.
