TokyoTreat is a subscription box for snacks you can only find in Japan - we have enjoyed most of the snacks and candy from our monthly subscription and it feeds our wanderlust too.
Snacks from other countries can be hard to find or just plain expensive stateside. We always lile the thrill of finding a snack from a different country, trying new flavors of food.
So we were incredibly excited to find out that there was a subscription box for Japanese snack lovers: TokyoTreat.

What Inside TokyoTreat Box
We initially bought the Premium snack box, which at $35, felt like a great deal for 17 items.
The orange box felt sturdy and we even saw a sticker that said it was shipped from Japan and went through U.S. customs, so I knew it was legit.
When we opened the box, we found a small booklet that detailed all of the snacks in the box. This was helpful since most of the packaging is in Japanese. The booklet also teaches you about Japanese festivals, events, and even recipes. They try to tie the items in the box to a theme. There was a lot of corn items in a box that was themed for summer vegetables, and we got some tasty sakura flavored items when it was cherry blossom season.
If you're a manga or anime fan, you'll enjoy seeing some of your favorite characters on some of the snacks.
What We liked about TokyoTreat boxes
The treats, as we expected, were a mix of salty and sweet items. They always include one DIY snack, which is pretty fun to put together.
The boxes also have a package of shareable snacks. They're essentially little 2-for-1 bags you can rip apart to give to your friends.
TokyoTreat also sends tea or a new kind of Japanese soda every month as well. The rest of the box is filled out with different types of snacks like chocolates, chips, corn puffs, rice crackers, and my favorite, mochi. Sometimes the flavors aren't right for us - we have never been a fan of energy drinks, for example, so we not crazy about an energy drink flavored candy. But for each snack that hasn't been a flavor slam dunk in our box, we have got two more that us enjoyed. This is also made up for the fact that these aren't easy snacks to get, and they show up at our house every month - there's not much to complain there.
The Bottom Line
It's become a favorite ritual of ours to unbox our TokyoTreat and eat one little snack a night. They're a nice little treat and it's a lot cheaper than going to Japan. We appreciate that every box we get contributes to our wanderlust about the country and has taught us a little more about Japan in the process.
