Our first glimpse inside the Freedom Japanese Market Box
what's in the freedom japanese market box
Everything that we received in our Freedom Japanese Market Box for December. It never ceases to amaze us at how FULL these boxes are!

So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert. We really love their descriptions and how they break down exactly what’s sent each month in each different box
Each Freedom Japanese Market Box comes with a handmade origami each month. This month’s is a snowman! How cute!
 
DIY Nomu-cho Jelly

This DIY candy kit came in both the original and family boxes for December. All you have to do is add water to create a musk melon flavored jelly!
Tahato Caramel Corn

Tahato is probably one of the tastiest snacks we receive in our Freedom Japanese Market Boxes and with their fun variety of flavors – they know how to keep it exciting. This bag of caramel corn came in the traditional flavor but some bags included an exclusive tree shaped puff… did we get it?
It didn’t look very promising
Until we got to the very bottom and found it! This snack came in both the original and family boxes for December
Corn Puffs
corn puffs
How cute is this package? These little puffs came in both the original and family boxes.
The flavor of these puffs was fried chicken and they were super interesting!
 
Chocolate Daifuku

Another snack that was included in both the original and family boxes, this mochi contains a chocolate center that will surprise and delight!
Kamen Rider Gummies
kamen rider gummies
This was our original box bonus (which means it was exclusive to that box alone).

The gummies were orange flavored and came in the shapes of people and items from Kamen Rider
Dars Mint

These mint filled chocolate were in the original and family boxes for this month
These were small but tasty. Think, a cross between Junior Mints and Andes Mints!
Suppai Mu-cho
suppai mu-cho
These vinegar potato chips were in all three December Boxes! The vinegar in these chips was much milder than our own Salt & Vinegar chips, very tasty!
Pokemon Card & Candy

In this package is one Pokemon card and two Poke Ball shaped grape gummies (perfect for Oliver). This was in each of the boxes for December
Here he is with his new goodies!

Fruit Hard Candies
Another item that was included in all the Freedom Japanese Market December Boxes were these fruit flavored hard candies. Love the cute little Christmas wrappers!
Chicken Curry Umaibo
chicken curry umaibo
Umaibo are puffed corn tubes that comes in a variety of flavors. This one has a chicken curry flavor (we’re not huge into curry). This came in all three boxes for December
Cheese Umaibo
Our second umaibo for the month also came in all three boxes – and it’s cheese flavored!
Tasted a lot like a cheese curl!
Energy Item Chocolate
The final item in this month’s Freedom Japanese Market Box came in all three boxes. This package contains three chocolate tokens and 1 display frame. We will attest to this chocolate’s tastiness!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Freedom Japanese Market Box is our favorite snack subscription because they keep the mixes fun and well balanced with a good amount of both sweet and savory treats. The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly and we love the origami. The quality is amazing – we love that each of the snacks is authentic and yummy! And curation is fantastic! We love the variety that they select each month and find it’s always the most beloved box for the kids!
