There are a lot of diversely sweet snacks in this box including the rich and bitter black sugar or 'Kuro Ame' hard candy and the coconut flaked Pandan flavored mochi rice cakes which are chewy and moist. So strap in for a wild ride with this month's box of delicious snacks.
Kasugai Kuro Ame Candy
Sweet and dark molasses candies with a rich and bitter flavor. These unique candies from Japan have a flavor that is not widely experienced in America. The name for the candy 'Kuro Ame' translates to black sugar in Japanese which is recognized as molasses by American consumers.

Shelley Senbei Rice Crackers
A taste of the salty sea envelopes your taste buds in a crunchy seaweed-flaked package to Southeast Asia with these crackers. Senbei rice crackers are similar in texture to a very dense and foamy rice puff and have a satisfying crack when bitten into. This savory cracker pairs perfectly with a cup of green tea.

Jin Jin Jelly Strip
Sweet jello strips that come in fruity flavors like pineapple ( which is our absolute fave :) ), grape, strawberry, and lychee. Like most gelatin snacks, these can be a little juicy when opening them so beware when cutting these open across the top. To make these extra refreshing we'd recommend putting these in the refrigerator before you enjoy them.
Ingredients: Water, Sugar, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Locust Bean Gum, Potassium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Artificial Grape Flavor, Artificial Lychee Flavor, Artificial Pineapple Flavor, Artificial Strawberry Flavor, Xanthan Gum, FD&C (Yellow No. 5 [E102], Red No.40 [E129], Blue No.1 [E133]).
Q Coconut Pandan Mochi
The crunchy coconut flakes and the slightly gritty bean filling contrast nicely with the soft smooth gelatin-like texture of this pandan flavored glutinous rice cake. The pandan is not too strong, allowing the coconut to be the star of the show. These cakes use sword beans instead of traditional red/adzuki beans used in most mochi cakes so the filling is slightly yellow. If you want a dessert, but not something too sweet, mochi cakes are an amazing afternoon treat.
Ingredients: Sword Bean Paste (Sword Bean, Sugar), Maltose, Sugar, Glutinous Rice, Hydroxypropyl Distarch Phosphate (Thickener)(E1442), Trehalose, Palm Oil, Pandan Powder, Coconut Cream Powder, Coconut Shred, Mono- and Diglycerides (Emulsifier)(E471), Flavor, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative)(E202).
Koikeya Potato Sticks
Hollowed crispy french fry type snacks that have a salty earthy taste of potato mix with the exotic taste of seaweed. The seaweed and salt work together in harmony to make for a satisfying crunchy snack with a savory flavor.

Marukawa Bubble Gum
Crunchy coated gum that comes in a variety of flavors including orange, strawberry, grape, green apple, peach, melon, and mixed. Starts off like a normal crackly candy-coated treat when you start chewing until you get to the chewy gum-filled center. This gum is not sugar-free and is therefore very sticky so those with braces or retainers beware.

Imei Lemon Puff
Crunchy biscuit puff with sweet lemon creme on the inside. The lemon cream is not too sweet though and it compliments the flaky puff shell. These are similar to a miniaturized french pastry called a profiterole (aka cream puff) which uses a flaky dough that is then filled with cream.
