The origami is a tribute to Dad! 
We think this one is super cute!

These puffed corn snacks come in this adorable bag and are in the exclusive summer flavor “Vanilla Ice Cream”. Tahato is always a huge hit with the kids and these were quite delicious. The bag was large and was easily split between the kids twice!
Sono Manma Peach

This tricksy little gum packet has 3 balls, 2 are sweet peach and one is sour! We decided this would be a perfect way to trick the kids!
One of these is the sour ball… but you never know which one until you try (and neither did they)
Banana Man

Pizza Umaibo

There were two kinds of umaibo included in this month’s box. The first was a pizza – which was cheesy and delicious
Umaibo is a puffed corn tube and this one really did taste like pizza!
Minivita C

These hard candies are infused with Vitamin C and were included in both the regular and family boxes for June
Bin Ramune

A sugar wafer bottle filled with a powdered ramune – stick the enclosed straw in the bottom of the bottle and enjoy! This interesting treat was included in both the regular and family boxes for June!
Salad Umaibo
Included in all the Freedom Japanese Market Boxes for June this umaibo was “Salad” flavored and probably our favorite thus far! Had a fun vinegar-y flavor that was addictive!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Freedom Japanese Market Box is a fun way to get your exotic snack fix each month. We really enjoy unboxing these and learning about all the snacks that Japan has to offer. The presentation is great – we love that they include an English packing list and the origami is beautiful and a great touch! The curation is perfect – a wonderful mix of sweet and savory at a great price – and with FREE worldwide shipping this is great for all our friends in other countries as well as US friends!
