TokyoTreat Classic Review August 2018
August 2018’s box has a Fruity Ninjas theme, meaning all of the items should contain fruit or be fruit flavored. Surprisingly enough, several of them aren’t, unless you count chocolate, mint, cheese, or corn fruit. Nevertheless, this is still a fun box!
Fruit Granola Black Thunder
This came in the condition you’d expect, considering that it’s still quite hot outside.
It doesn’t look appealing at all. Thankfully, it tastes fine! The chocolate coating counters the tangy fruit well, much like having chocolate covered raisins. I enjoyed that the texture wasn’t too hard, either.
It just looks so rough after a long journey.
Cinnamon Apple Pie Umaibo
This is an Umaibo flavored like a cinnamon apple pie. The Umaibo actually arrived intact, without any breakage.
The flavor is mainly apple, with a slight hint of cinnamon. I think the Umaibo itself is apple flavored and the light coating is cinnamon, but I’m not too sure.
Either way, it’s very pleasant.
Chocolate Mint Caramel Corn
This isn’t fruit!
That isn’t really a problem, or anything, but it doesn’t fit the theme of the box.
The snack itself is a corn puff flavored like mint chocolate chip ice cream. It’s very interesting, since it does taste as it should, but the flavor lingers for longer than I’d personally like.
The bag is a very decent size, but I’m not sure I’m going to eat a lot of them. Perhaps I’d rather have something more dessert-like if I want mint chocolate chip?
Cheese Rice Puffs
This isn’t fruit, either.
This is a corn puff, somewhat shaped like a Frito, that tastes like cheese.
The texture is not what I expected upon first glance. It’s more like that of Puff Corn, which is a popcorn snack without kernels. Puff Corn and this snack both suffer from having a texture similar to that of something kind of stale.
The cheese flavor wasn’t really anything special here, unfortunately, so they do nothing for me.
Honey Apple Hard Candy
This is a very basic hard candy flavored like apples and honey.
It’s very nice! The apple flavor is strong, but pleasant.
Supposedly it can help with sore throats, too.
Fruit Donut Gummy
Unfortunately, I have no images here, as the gummy was completely melted and stuck to its package from the heat.
From what I could taste, it’s more sour than expected, so it’s not my favorite item. That being said, I feel like I can’t rate it properly since the melting made everything blend together.
Rating: Can’t rate, came melted.
Chip Star Lemon Chips
These are potato chips that look like Pringles, but are coated lightly with a lemon powder.
They’re actually really, really nice! The lemon is not too strong, and the chip itself is tasty, like an original Pringle.
I like these a lot.
Melon Jelly Drink DIY
This is a melon jelly drink, like I have tried before. The pack comes with a cup, a cute mini straw, melon gelatin powder, and you just need to add water and mix!
Unfortunately, I may have added too much water because the melon flavor was weak and unsatisfying. I don’t want to really rate it poorly, because I may have messed up, but I feel like even if I used less water it wouldn’t have been that strong.
I don’t know.
Shimi Corn Share Pack
This is not fruit, but it’s a tasty corn puff coated in chocolate.
They survived the heat well, and they taste just like chocolate cereal. My only complaint is that they aren’t related to fruit at all!
VERDICT: This box was a little weaker than the previous, mainly due to some of the items not fitting the theme. That being said, it was still a fun experience!
