So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Freedom Japanese Market Box is a wonderful way to keep the fun and exotic treats comin’! We love the variety and the fact that it’s something we can share with the kids. The presentation is awesome, everything arrives perfectly despite it’s long journey. The quality is great – lots of big Japanese brand names! And curation is super! We love the variety and the kids get so excited when they see this box come in the mail! Freedom Japanese Market is our favorite snack subscription!
