Unboxing & Review: OyatsuBox April 2017

OyatsuBox April 2017 Unboxing + Review

Oh my, it’s been a long time since I posted an OyatsuBox unboxing! I’ve still been subscribed and have really enjoyed all the boxes so far this year. Oyatsu seem to have been super busy behind the scenes as they now have both a UK store and a special Okinawa store (both very exciting!) as well as a new, bigger warehouse which I believe they are moving to this week. I’m so happy to see Oyatsu Cafe expanding! o(≧▽≦)o

My May box arrived last week but I figured it’s not too late to do a quick unboxing for the April box first. I’ve skipped too many great boxes this year, I don’t want to skip any more 。゚・ (>﹏<) ・゚。

Unboxing & Review: Zenpop Ramen + Sweets Mix Pack

Zenpop Ramen + Sweets Mix Pack

Those who read my last post about Zenpop (here if you missed it) may remember I mentioned buying a second pack before I even finished reviewing my first one, I was so impressed. Well, here it is! This is the debut Ramen + Sweets Mix Pack, released February 2017. You can view details of the current mix pack here and all other Zenpop packs here.

Honestly I like the look of all the packs Zenpop offer, but for me this one stood out for its incredible value; for $24.50 you receive 2-3 noodle bowls, 6-8 snacks and free international shipping. Considering how much it costs to import these ramen noodle pots or subscribe to dedicated noodle subscription boxes I think this pack is a great way to go if (like me) you’re on a budget and want to try both interesting noodles and interesting snacks. After all, why choose one when you can get both? 。^‿^。

The theme for this debut pack is Salty + Sweet, which is one of my absolute favourite flavour combinations when snacking. Don’t forget that the beauty of Zenpop’s boxes lies in the fact that you don’t have to commit to a monthly subscription, you are able to dip in and out and buy only the boxes that interest you. The item description tells you some of the items included and gives teasers for the rest so you can figure out most of the items before you buy, which is both useful and exciting to me. No mystery means no let downs after all, plus you get the hype from knowing what goodies are on the way rather than wondering if you’ll like the items you’ve just paid for. I couldn’t wait for this box to arrive knowing it had matcha potato chips in it o(>ω<)o
