This month’s box is totally exhibiting different corners of Japan and what each could offer.
November box arrived really early! I was notified of shipment by 14th of October, and the Post Office messaged me on the 21st. It took only more or less a week’s time.
I even have not emptied my September and October boxes yet!
I remembered I missed the experience of tea ceremony while in Kyoto while wearing kimono. Too little time! These makes me want to go back to Japan and try every special of each town and city can offer.
I am lookinf forward to the Matcha Cookies and Hojicha KitKats; as well as the Dorayaki, Chocolate Mochi, and Coke Apple!
October box is here! Kind of late but I was well informed, anyway; and very understandable as Japan was hit by typhoon during the week that my Tokyo Treat box was supposed to be shipped. I was notified by QPost on October 1st already and I managed to claim it October 3.
Summer is not yet over with Tokyo Treat — ’cause they’re giving out slices of it! I received mine 9 days before August and I have a load of sweets yet to consume since June.
Having been subscribed for half a year already and so far my experience has been pleasant, aside from a snack or two in each box that I am totally fine not receiving.
The treats that I’m most excited about are the Tohato Caramel Corn Cider and the Lemon & Salt flavor KitKat. (See the snack reviews at the end of this post) While I am not sure what to feel about the beverage for this month, which is the Pepsi Cola Refresh Shot.
Below is a quick overview / unboxing in stills:
Tohato Caramel Corn – Cider Flavour My ultimate favorite in this box! It’s sweet good that I ate all of it in one sitting — I just can’t stop.
Salt & Lemon KitKat I remember a certain biscuit with filling in the Philippines with this flavour (if you know Rebisco Cream) which is one of my favorite merienda when I was a kid.
Lucky Corn I love this snack. Reminds me of a childhood snack called Sweet Corn – but more tasty.
The April box arrived early! I got my box by 25th of March (they shipped it the same day they did a month ago for the previous box — March 12, 2019) which I did not quite expect, which is a good thing! See my first box from Tokyo Treat here.
One of my friends here in Qatar also subscribed to Tokyo Treat a few days earlier before my account was debited for this month’s box. Qatar Post did messaged her a few days earlier than me and we claimed the boxes together at the same day.
Here comes my second box from Tokyo Treat: We have an Easter-themed box for April! Very timely.
Joyce and I both got the Pepsi J-Cola Sakura (I’ve been wishing to get the Sakura Cola though) — which they replaced the Fanta Banana Yogurt with, that is supposed to come with this month’s box.
Here’s a visual overview of this month’s box:
For the month of April, the box comes with the Futura Egg Chocolate and TT announced it’s monthly contest to be where you should decorate the egg-shaped snack container with festive colors to celebrate Easter. Of course, I’m in to the contest. You can check and see my entry below.
Update: 10 May 2019 I did not make it to the contest but I still had fun doing it (… for the ‘gram. Kidding!)
Kit-Kat Banana is good that I kind of regret sharing it with my office mates. Tohato Caramel Corn is one of my favorites. If you know the Filipino snack Sweet Corn, that is what the Corn Potage snack tastes like.
Can’t wait for the May 2019 box to arrive. It should’ve been here by now since I was notified that my box was shipped 10th of April…
