WHAT'S INSIDE MY BOX:

1.  KITKAT in BAKED CHEESECAKE 2pcs

"Pop these goodies into your toaster oven for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes for a real treat.  They also taste great as-is"

I've known Kitkat since I was a kid but this will be my first time to try it in Baked Cheesecake. It was a little bit too sweet for me.  But my kids said it tasted better if you place it on the oven first.

2.  UMAIBO CHOCOLATE

"A light and crispy tube, coated with chocolate"

The chocolate was creamy and not too sweet. I liked the chocolate as well as the crispy tube but I don't think it was a good combination though.

3.  PUCHI (MINI) CHOCOLATE BISCUIT 

"Mini Cookies slathered in real chocolate"

The mini cookie was crunchy and the chocolate has a semi sweet taste to it.  I liked it but was not addictive to it.

4.  RAMUNE GUMMY

"Contains tangy gummy that looks and tastes like the summer festival drink of choice in Japan."

I was not able to try this one because it came in only 1 piece and my daughter wanted to have it. She said it tasted good and really tasted like ramune.

5.  YUKI NO SATO (RICE CRACKERS)

"Made from 100% Japanese grown mochi rice"

At first I thought this was a butter cookie, but once i bit on it i was surprised that it was a little hard and crunchy at the same time. It was a little bit salty and really had that rice flavor to it.  Not a fave of mine.

6.  FUJIYA LOLLIPOPS (2 pcs)

"The rock, paper, scissors, and heart (heart trumps all) designs turn these suckers into play pieces."

The flavor that I got was in grape and peach flavor.  My son immediately grabbed these pops when he saw it.  He said that it tasted so good that he wanted to have more.

7.  STRAWBERRY CAPLICO

"By Popular Demand! Crispy strawberry outer shell with an equally crispy chocolate center"

I was not able to enjoy this snack because as you can see from the pic I got it in broken pieces.  I tasted bits of it though and it really tasted good.  No wonder it was back due to popular demand.  The chocolate melts readily away in your mouth and the cone was super crunchy"

8.  UMAIBO PREMIUM

"Rich Cheese flavor in a large umaibo tube.  If you like cheese, you will want more"

One of my fave snack from this snack box. This was really cheesy and very delicious. My mouth is watering by just thinking about it.  Yes it was that good.  I have to get more of this stuff !!!

9.  ONE PIECE GUM (2 pcs)

"Share the wrappers with your One Piece friends"

This gum was chewy and sweet.  I really like the packaging.

10.  YOKAI WATCH RICE PUFFS

 

"Search "Yokai Taiso"on YouTube to learn the dance for this popular animated series, then share your dance with us"

This reminded me of cheese rings back home.  This was not that cheesy at all but it is good. I love munching on it.  The box has a small blue packet and inside is a small card with a picture of one of the monsters.


11.  SCONE TRIPLE CHEESE

"Special Three Cheese blend of this great Japanese treat"

I have to buy more of this !!!! Oh my G, i just can't stop myself from munching on this snack.  It was packed with lots of cheese.  It was crunchy and cheesy. I love love love it so much.

12.  KAJU STRAWBERRY GUMMY (BONUS SNACK)

"Soft and oh so juicy, these gummies come in a re-sealable package so you can enjoy them over a few days"

Oh well we didn't need to reseal it since my son finished it all in just one seating.  He really enjoyed these gummies and wanted more of it.  Just look at the gummies it was shaped exactly like a strawberry. It was pretty awesome.

VERDICT: Freedom Japanese Market is one of the best Japanese Snack box I've tried.  To tell you frankly, I was really not expecting a lot since the two Japaneses Snack Box Services that i'm subscribed to at the moment has 3-4 snack items that are exactly the same.  But Freedom Market Snack Box gave out snack items that i have not seen or tried yet.  Their snacks are way different from the other japanese snack boxes here in USA.  This box are sent straight from Japan so do expect traditional and unique snacks that can't be bought here in America.


RATING:

DISCLAIMER:  I bought the box with my own money and gave an honest review without gaining any monetary gains or whatsoever from the company.
