Our first glimpse inside the Freedom Japanese Market Box for September

September Freedom Japanese Market contents! Another awesome box full of goodies!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert that details each item that was in each box

The reverse tells us a bit about our origami mushroom which is a Japanese symbol for fall!


Pineapple Chips

These candy flavored potato chips are sweet and salty and absolutely unique! The pineapple flavor tastes real - almost like pineapple pizza! These were included in both the Regular and Family subscriptions for September


Hora Dekita! DIY

Our DIY Candy Kit for this month allows us to create mini versions of candy apples! There is a DIY Kit in both the Regular and Family Box each month

There are always instructions on the back with images to help guide you


Tahato Caramel Corn
fruit au lait tahato
This month's Tahato flavor is "Fruit Au Lait" and is bright and almost like a fruity cereal! The texture is always the same - light and puffy!

These almost look like little shrimps. This was included in all three boxes for September.


Kaki No Tane
kaki no tane
This mix of rice crackers and peanuts has a slightly sweet yet slightly hot flavor that is completely unique!

This was in both the regular and family boxes for September


Candy Mic

This Candy Mic was a Bonus and was in both the regular and family boxes for September

It was filled with small Ramune candies.


Mentai Umaibo
mentai umaibo
We have to say that we are huge fans of umaibo. It's delicious but there's also so many unique flavors to try, you just can't get tired of it. This one is pollock fish roe flavored and while that may sound a bit crazy... it was totally delicious!

Also the wrapper was pretty boss! This was in all three boxes for September


Cheese Arare

These little baked rice crackers have a mellow cheese flavor and taste a LOT like a Bugle. 

These were one of our favorites for this month and were in both the regular and family boxes!


Tonkatsu Umaibo
tonkatsu umaibo
Our second Umaibo this month is "Pork Cutlet Sauce" flavored which ... doesn't really help us as far as flavors go but that's sort of why we love these! It was really good, a mix of sweet and salty.

This umaibo was also included in all three boxes this month


Champagne Cider Candies

These little ice cube looking candies are champagne cider flavored and are super chewy. They even came with their own toothpick! These were included in all three boxes this month!


Orange Queen

This snack sized serving has orange flavored yogurt candy.

This was light, fluffy and delicious and luckily for subscribers came in each box for September!


Choco Daifuku

This little candy is a sweet mochi with a chocolate filling. This was so tasty (our favorite for this month) and we love the wrapper! It was included in all the boxes for September

The little guy on the package looks like a Candy Kingdom resident from Adventure Time!


Kinbaku Iri
kinbaku iri
These little soda flavored hard candies come with their own fortunes! We received two - and these could be found in both the regular and family boxes for September


Little Gang

In each box this month you could also find a package of Little Gang Pop Rocks! We received a fruit flavored variety.. they suggest eating it with icecream... but we just ate them plain!

They almost look like Christmas colors!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Freedom Japanese Market Box is so much fun - each month trying the different flavors is honestly a journey and we're learning more and more with each box. The presentation is awesome. We love the descriptive list as well as the monthly origami! Quality is amazing - everything is authentic and yummy! And curation is perfect - we love the variety and feel there's a great balance of sweet and savory in each package.
