DIY Bubble Tea Matcha Milk
I have never had Boba before and I doubt this is the best introduction. This was a fun thing to do none the less. It was simple. Put the tapioca pearls and the matcha powder in the cup. Then add hot water.
There is milk powder in this so I'm sure my bowls will pay me back for this, but the tea itself is tasty. The bitter matcha works well with the sweet milk. The tapioca pearls don't taste like anything, so I guess that's more of a texture thing. I don't know if that's normal.
All in all a fun experience. I feel like I should get a proper boba at some point in my life.
8/10 fun to make. Tasty. But has milk in it which is not great for me
This is the Baskin' Robbins Popping Shower Chocolate
I did not recognize the flavor of the chocolate (which is based on a popular ice cream in Japan called popping shower), but it did taste familiar.
Even with the name I did not expect the popping to happen. There were little crystals much like pop rocks in the chocolate which gave a fun and surprising sensation.
This was a very fun experience.
Rilakkuma Red gummy
First I think it is interesting that this was just called red as the other option I could have gotten was green apple which is an actual flavor not just a color.
That aside this was a tasty gummy. I love gummies. A good strawberry flavor. I wish they would give their gummies the amount they give their hard candy or chips.
8/10 I want more
KitKat Citrus Mint
A different combo than I'm used to eating. Usually the idea of mixing citrus with mint is a big turnoff, but this actually works. The citrus is subtler than I would have liked. The flavors don't happen together, but instead burst out one after the other. The mint is very strong.
Marukawa Orange Gum
Much like last month's grape flavored gum I am happy to say this was satisfying to chew. I decided to pop all 4 into my mouth.
The orange flavor is very artificial. It reminds me of the orange tictacs. I like it. Yum :3
Minty Animals: Panda
A very cute container with a prize inside. The mints have a slight citrus taste to them. To be honest the candy itself was a 5/10. But the container was very cute, plus I got a sticker!
7/10 I like cute things
Corn potage bites
The "regular" version to the texas one. I think I like this one better. There is a little more flavor and seasoning.
Not bad, although there is something about it that is putting me off...oh well
I just canceled my tokyo treat subscription. I still love the product, but I don't know that I'll be able to keep paying the 100$ charge for the next 3 months. I still have August's box to go through (and a few of July's are in the queue) so I'm not without these tasty treats.
This was soooo good. The corn puff cruch with a delicious lemon coating. The lemon tasted like the lemonhead candy. I could not stop myself from eating the whole thing. I was not expecting it to be so good
Yum 😍 the cookie is thin and the cream is not much, but its so tasty. The sakura cream is a welcomed new experience in my oreo. Not too sweet. Not bland. Just the right amount.
9/10 I bet my spouse will love it
Chibi Maru Chocolate
Inside this little package are two m&m sized chocolates. And much like an m&m it is chocolate covered in a candy shell.
It is good and tasted better than m&m's but I was sad that there were only 2 in the bag
7/10 tasty but not enough
So I'm not a big fan of actual okonomiyaki, but I was interested to try this.
Behold my favorite corn puff medium. It has a dusted flavoring which sets it apart from the other corn snacks I've had. It is savory, and the amount that came in the bag is just right.
7/10 okay, but I won't go out of my way to get it
Maukawa Grape Gum
I was surprised to see that this box had TWO gums available. And I'm a lot happier with this gum than the previous.
The container has 4 small gumballs. And while the amount is less than the previous gum I had before, these small ones are individually more enjoyable.
First the grape taste is fantastic and lingers for a while for a piece of gum so small.
There is a good chew, and while it isn't enough for blowing bubbles i bet if you had all four together you could get one.
