It’s Oyatsu Box time again! In true Oyatsu form February’s edition is full of awesome seasonal and limited edition items. I was super excited for this coming in after seeing a few others share the contents of the box, I really wish mine arrived as early in the month as they used to but hey. At least they arrive safe and sound 🙂
Let’s see what’s inside!
First up, a nice big bag of crisps. These are Koikeya Scon in a limited edition sour cream and onion flavour. I suppose as a UK resident who sees this flavour everywhere this is less exciting to me than it may be for others. I actually don’t really like sour cream and onion either so…yeah. I kind of wish this was a different flavour. But we’ll see how they taste anyway 🙂
Mmm, strawberry! This is a pack of Kabaya Pue Strawberry Gummy. Pure gummies are known for their realistic flavours, so strawberry ones are sure to be good ^_^
A more traditional offering in the form of a pack of Genji Pie, a sweet and crispy treat dating back to 1965. They look delicious, I think we’re going to enjoy these too!
A cute dagashi item, these are senbei wafers with a sachet of sweet sauce. Apparently they’re a reprint of a retro snack from decades ago, which is pretty cool 🙂
This is Crisp Choco, a ‘cake’ made from corn flakes, in maple pancake flavour. A giant maple flavoured cornflake bun? Sounds awesome! 🙂
This is a seasonal item with a super retro theme, Kamen Rider Chips in Salty Sweet Potato flavour. Kamen Rider was first aired in 1971, although there is a 2016 movie which is presumably why there is merchandise around for it now. The crisps sound delicious in any case ^_^
Meiji Choco Banana. I literally shuddered at these. This is the forth pack of these to come into my household and honestly, I can’t say I’m any more inclined to review this pack than I was the first. I really, truly dislike these. The banana shells are highly artificial and just utterly disgusting to me. At least my partner and son love these, they’ll enjoy them 🙂
Another limited edition, this time Joo C sherbert discs in Strawberry Shortcake flavour. Yum! Interested to see how cake translates into candy form 🙂
Our DIY kit for the month is Meigum Oekaki Sherbert, which will see us making delicious and adorable frozen treats.
I haven’t had the time to do any DIY kits lately, but I’m looking forward to this one as it’s quite different to any I’ve done before 🙂
Last but not least we have a box of Kikori No Kirikabu, which are little tree stumps made from chocolate and biscuit. We’ve eaten these already as my son loved the colourful box and was keen to try them, they are delicious ^_^
Our gachapon for the month is Dragonball Super, awesome! I was beginning to lose hope a little with the meh gachapon choices Oyatsu were making, but this one has restored my faith. We got Vegeta, I don’t know what’s up with that weird skin tone but he’s adorable! We’re all really happy with the gachapon this month ^_^
I do wish Oyatsu Box would include some non anime gachapons, like the adorable pretend food based ones or really anything. It’s been anime for months, which is always going to be a miss for someone given how varied peoples taste in anime is. Please Oyatsu Box? :3
Overall, another great box with a fun and interesting selection of both type and flavour of snacks. Thanks again Oyatsu Box, see you next month! ^_^
