Freedom Japanese Market Snack Box Review

Freedom Japanese Market offered to send me one of their snack boxes to review. For $25 you get 10-12 packs of crisps, sweets, chocolate, gummies, DIY kits and more with different things every month. The company hand-picks all the items they send and often include limited edition Japan-only snacks and never any made for foreign markets.

I received a pretty full box and was impressed by how well packed it was. Everything was in perfect condition and has been ordered specifically for the boxes so it’s all fresh and includes seasonal flavours and limited editions. They also fold a piece of origami for everyone (so cute!) and there’s an info sheet with details on all the items so you don’t have to guess what they are.

Karamucho: Hot chili flavored potato chips, a favorite in many Japanese homes! I was expecting them to be extremely hot but they actually they had more of a sweet chilli flavour and were pleasantly spicy.

Kaki no Mi: These savory rice cracker are a great little snack and are really hard to put down! Rice crackers are a great and healthier alternative to potato chips.

Pokemon Karipori: Crunchy Pokemon grape soda and melon soda flavored candy sticks! Includes six individual packs with 2 sticks in each.

Otona No Amasa KitKat: Mini KitKat's coated in a delicious layer of dark chocolate. They are sold in Japan as an adult alternative to the standard KitKat and features dark chocolate cookie crumbles layered between the wafers.

Maze Maze drink: Mix and match candies to create your own flavors

Umaibo snacks: These were my favourite discovery. I had never heard of them before but they’re cylindrical corn snacks about the length of my hand. It’s basically like eating a giant Cheeto but with pizza (green, white and red) and onion salad (gold) flavour - which by the way tasted amazing! I definitely want to try more flavours and would never have thought to buy them

Rilakkuma Pretzel Sticks: I especially liked the cute packaging of these. They’re a bit like Pocky but instead of the chocolate they have a delicious honey flavour.

Chirin Kanpai Ramune: This mini mug is filled with ramune flavored candies, the mug looks adorable and can be reused when empty.

PukuPuku Tai: Similar to traditional Japanese Taiyaki but with a fluffy chocolate filling instead of sweet bean paste. Fortified with calcium!

I also received a Hora Dekita, DIY Candied Apples set which I reviewed here

My final conclusion: For $25 a month and free shipping worldwide direct from Japan, the snack box is a real bargain. What I also love about their company is that they do not require that you buy several months of a subscription plan up front. They believe that it is their duty to win their clients’ business each and every month and club members can easily cancel their subscription at any time.

To order kindly visit their website: and make sure to mention ''DiaryOfAMua'' in the order comments section to get a bonus candy in your first box!
