Ditch The Mundane Munchies And Elevate Your Snack Stash With A Roulette Of Japanese Kit Kat & Tirol Flavors – Diversity In Every Delicious Bite!

Review: "I have been to Japan several times and love the special limited/seasonal kit-kats. This is a great way to get a wide variety of them to sample. Some may not sound all that interesting perhaps scary (I am looking at you Wasabi) but every single one is delicious. These are tiny in size like Halloween treats but enough to enjoy and explore." - A. Saru

Review: "It was so good I remember having this a couple years ago and I’m so happy I got to revisit that memory it’s just as delicious as it was then I highly recommend if you like trying new flavors and textures it’s very chew and sweet with a marshmallowy filling and just inside is like a sweet melon paste" - paytonrolle

One of my local supermarkets (Germany) occasionally has Mochi ice cream (so Mochi with various ice cream fillings, usually either vanilla or mango). Quite costly but delicious.

Want To Taste As Many Of The Flavors Of The Far East? Embark On A Culinary Crusade With The Shogun Candy Japanese Variety Pack—it's Time To Unravel The Scrumptious Secrets Within!

Review: "The main categories seem to be fruit flavored jelly/gummy candy, savory rice crackers/rice puffs, general flour crackers, and hard candies. The sprinkle of other flavors you will find include pop rocks, cookies, M&M type chocolate, and what I guess is snacking ramen sticks. Overall, lots of fun to try all the different things. Keep in mind this is the equivalent of "penny candy" and not the high quality items. There is nothing wrong with that! Just keep that in mind when trying this. My favorite so far has been a hard candy which I think was brown sugar boba flavor. My least favorite went to a cracker with some sort of white filling. The cracker was dry and flavorless." - Lilly

Review: "I have been on the hunt for these snacks for years now. I remember trying them in a Japanese snack box a long time ago and could never get them out of my head. They're not too sweet, not thickly coated in chocolate, and have a satisfying crispiness to them. They're so addicting and I love how neatly they fit in one box so they're not damaged. These are one of the best snacks I know and I'm glad I was finally able to find them! Will definitely purchase again! 💕" - Snekku

Review: " These drinks are not only bursting with nice flavors, but fun novelties. The flavors are pretty good and not of the usual kind of pop flavors. The fun is in popping the bottle open with the marble. It is a fun thrill every time. I would recommend this drink to anyone who drinks pop, likes non mainstream flavors, and likes to have a little fun playing with their drinks." - Brytannica

Reel In The Sweetness With Pukupuku-Tai, Where Every Bite Is Like A Chocolate Bubble Bath Shaped Like Your Favorite Fishy Friend From Japan.

Reel In The Sweetness With Pukupuku-Tai, Where Every Bite Is Like A Chocolate Bubble Bath Shaped Like Your Favorite Fishy Friend From Japan.

Review: "The flavors that come with every package are strawberry and chocolate, and the 3rd flavor is a random surprise seasonal flavor. This time I think the 3rd flavor was a milkshake flavor, very good, one I haven’t tried before. The strawberry and chocolate are classic, and well loved in my family.
The wafers were completely undamaged, and no sogginess or strange texture. Please note, if your mail carrier is bad at handling packages you may have sogginess from a leak into the package or some other problem. These should NOT “melt” as they are NOT a frozen food item! These are shelf-stable and as long as it’s not blistering hot out, it should not have any texture problems (think like how most chocolate bars are shelf stable as long as it’s not scorching heat out). This is even more stable than a chocolate bar actually because there is no coating, only the wafer shell, and the inside is “puffy” cream texture, not unlike the inside of a kitkat bar. There shouldn’t be any sogginess so check with your shipping carrier. You can refrigerate for a few hours before opening if you’re buying in the summer, and your mail carrier is not responsible, but you shouldn’t need to do that during comfortable or cold weather." - Kathleen
