Hello my lovelies! Today I am happy to share one of my newest subscribed boxes — OKASHI CONNECTION!
Okashi Connection is a premium Japanese candy and snack subscription box. They strive to send treats that can only be found in Japan or that would be hard for the average person to find outside of Japan. They focus on seasonal and tasty foods; no weird eel flavored or ‘filler’ snacks here.
There is now THREE options to subscribe to which is the Samurai Box ($22.00/month including S & H), Ninja Box ($14.00/month), & Sumo Box ($33.00/month) — the higher the price the more snacks you receive! They do have one time purchases, so if you interested in that you can check out their website. They do not provide a certain amount of snacks each month, but instead they aim for around a pound (about 450 grams) of candy/snacks in each box. You do not have to keep subscribing every month — once you have subscribed you will continue to be subscribed until you end your subscription. Okashi Connection uses Economy Air (SAL) via the Japan Post. For a full list of countries, please see this site. This is where you can find out if they ship to where you live!

This is my second box from Okashi Connection, and again, I was not disappointed. This box is even more unique than the last, and I ALREADY tasted some of the snacks. I am currently paying $22/month for the Samurai box, which is just right for me. I think for the amount of snacks & the quality of them does compare with the price. Here are the items I received in December’s box:
Again, I am really, really pleased with this box! Everything in the box is unique & something I’ve never seen before. Everything is well proportioned like always — they don’t give you little tasting sizes, which I appreciate. There is an information card that tells you what everything is in English, so you aren’t eating any mystery snacks. And there is a variety of snacks from chocolate to caviar to jellies.
I actually already tried the Christmas Tirol Choco, “3 flavors White Choco biscuit, soft chocolate. Light crispy interior that dissolves in mouth”. I was confused as to what the description meant so I had to try it. There were three different chocolates inside the package and they were all different flavors. I gave one flavor to each of my siblings and we tried them all at once. All in all, I liked my flavor — milk chocolate with gummy stuff inside. One of my siblings just had a regular milk chocolate, and my other sibling had white chocolate and some gooey stuff inside. I also tried the two Premium Umaibo, one was mozzarella cheese and camembert flavored & the other was wasabi & steak flavored. The mozzarella flavored one just tasted like a cheese puff & the wasabi & steak tasted REALLY spicy and nasty in my opinion, haha. But I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it because I don’t like wasabi! I tried other items but I won’t go into detail with those. Just know that I enjoyed everything I tried besides the wasabi & steak Premium Umaibo.
I can’t wait to try everything else in the next few weeks! I do plan on continuing my subscription with Okashi Connection. I love the box I received this month, just like in November, so if you are interested I would recommend you subscribing soon!
NOTE: They do not provide a tracking number when you purchase your box. They just give you a time frame to follow. But mine did arrive in the time frame, so that was good as well. Right now they send a separate email to subscribers that give them an option to pay more to receive a tracking number, along with a faster shipping process. But I am not taking part in that promotion.
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time…
