TokyoTreat Classic Review July 2018
This month’s box is all about summer camping snacks and flavors that remind you of such. The snacks inside all are part of the theme, and should make you think about the fun days and nights of summer!
Chocolate Mint Twigs
It’s chocolate in the summer again! I was really worried about these chocolate twigs melting, but they seemed to be okay when I opened them up.
These are flavored like mint chocolate chip ice cream. They do taste pretty close to that, with the mint flavor not too strong. The texture is softer than I would have guessed, but that’s not a bad thing. These are nice for a small, quick chocolate fix.
Okara Cheesecake Cookies
These are very soft biscuit cookies that are flavored like cheesecake, made with okara fiber. Okara is soy pulp, according to a quick Google search.
They do taste like cheesecake, but they’re not very sweet. This isn’t bad, but not exactly what I expected. I would eat them again if given them, but I’m not too sure I’d buy them! (I do like how soft they are, though.)
Rich BBQ Potato Sticks
These are thin potato sticks flavored with BBQ powder, in a convenient one hand bag. The whole gimmick of the bag works okay for a bit, but when you eat enough of them, the remaining sticks become a little stubborn about leaving the small hole. I ended up just opening the bag like normal then.
The taste is fine, pretty sweet like a lot of BBQ sauces. I liked them! They’re just simple and there isn’t a whole lot to say. 🙂
Poteko Potato Rings Share Pack
I feel like I’ve gotten these before in a past box, but I don’t recall when!
These are very, very simple little potato rings. They’re lightly salted, and so it’s very easy to eat one bag in a sitting.
Luckily, four bags were in the box, so eating one quickly isn’t too bad, haha.
I really enjoy how lightly salted these are.
Pretty Cure Chocolate Wafer
This is a chocolate wafer cookie with Precure characters on the package and a small nail decor page inside.
The wafer is basic; in fact, I’m sure I’ve had the same thing in a different package before. It’s not bad at all, though, and it survived the summer heat to get to me!
Cheese Umaibo is the best Umaibo. It’s sweet and cheesy, and not too greasy or ambitious.
This one came broken, but it was still tasty. I’d love to have it again!
Grape Soda Gummy
This is a gummy flavored like grape soda, covered in sugar powder.
As you can see, it did not survive the summer heat.
The grape flavor was still there, but the gummy was stuck in the package and hard to eat. The sugar powder all shifted to the bottom, too.
I feel like I can’t give this a fair rating due to the situation it arrived in.
Rating: Arrived melted, can’t rate.
This is a very well known candy shaped like stars (or flowers, kinda). The candy has various light flavors, but mainly tastes like sugar.
Luna loved them in the Sailor Moon S movie!
Wishing upon these won’t let you meet Sailor Moon, but they’re tasty!
Water Candy DIY
This DIY kit lets you choose between ramune, strawberry, or lemon liquid candy, or a mix of them all that makes a grape flavor.
I admit, I forgot to try the individual flavors! I did try the grape, though, and it was impressive! I kind of can’t believe how the original three flavors made grape so well.
That being said, this was REALLY sweet, too sweet for me to finish.
VERDICT: This was another excellent box with no ‘duds’. The melted gummy was a little disappointing, but it was so small that it didn’t matter at the end of the day. Looking forward to the next one!
