Random Fact of the Day: A Koala Bear sleeps 22 hours of every day. (I wish I was a Koala Bear)
Hello friends & welcome to another Okashi Connection Unboxing and Review! (I’m so mad because I had a Top10T preblogged but my wifi was down yesterday .-. ) I always get excited when I type that, because that means I get to try some more awesome treats (while, of course, sharing them with you all virtually, lol)!
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 (and so far, this holds to be true for I cannot find any of the snacks that they have sent, besides Pocky, which is both a good and bad thing xD ). They focus on seasonal and tasty foods; no weird eel flavored or ‘filler’ snacks here.
There is now THREE options to subscribe to:
- Ninja Box ~ 5-7 items/up to 1 lb. ($14.00/month including S&H)
- Samurai Box ~ 9-13 items/up to 1.5 lbs. ($22.00/month) [I AM HERE]
- Sumo Box ~ 14-18 items/up to 2.5 lbs. ($33.00/month) — the higher the price the more snacks you receive!
They do have one time purchases, so if you are interested in that you can check out their website HERE. They do not provide a very 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.
When you subscribe, you have the choice right there in the subscription form to choose either “Economy Air SAL” (2-4 week estimate, no tracking) or “Express Mail Service (EMS)” (about 3-6 business days, tracking emails directly from Japan Post). EMS costs more money. Also, when subscribing, you can choose exactly what day you want to start (as long as that box is available), and your box will get shipped out within 6 business days of your payment!
DISCLAIMER: I do not take part in the EMS promotion, however I am still very happy with the time frame in which my box usually arrives.
Now let’s get to the unboxing!
Okashi Connection is definitely something special. I must admit I haven’t tried much in the box yet, but that’s probably because I am trying to savour everything, lol. Here are the top 3 treats that I am most excited to try:
- Pototto Plus — Herb & Salt Taste with Olive Oil
- Pachi Pachi Panic — Pop Rocks and Ramune Mix
- Shuwabo Change Cola — Very Sour Center, Lemon & Orange Mash-up
These three items sound so intriguing, but to torture myself I’m probably going to leave these three for last! Oh, and guess what??? There’s a DIY this time, yayy!!! The DIY is to make your own Gummi, & I am so ready to do that with my siblings 🙂
I know I say this every time I post about OC, but I really do love this subscription box. I’ve been subscribed for half a year now, and I’m always in a good mood when I see that yellow box on my home’s doorstep.
And that is all for this Okashi Connection Unboxing & Review! I hope, if this is your first time seeing this subscription, that you go by their website and possibly check out what they have in store. If you aren’t 100% convinced that OC is as awesome as I say it is, they DO have one time purchases! Definitely let me know if you have any questions or comments down below!
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time…
