Freedom Japanese Market

Freedom Japanese Market is a family owned business who provide high quality traditional and kawaii snacks. Each box comes filled to the brim with delicious goodies, as well as an itemized list describing the contents in full detail. It is a monthly Japanese snacks and candy subscription box. This was the first ever subscription box I ever received.

Freedom Japanese market is a family run by Ken (the snack enthusiast + box packer), Sanae (Product coordinator + origami maven) and their two kids, Juliet and Kevin ( the official taste testers + Quality control). Ken was really friendly and helpful for every doubt I had.

They pack all the items carefully and no space is wasted.  Another thing is that they take time to make an Origami of the Month and include it in every box. Each month it is a different origami and this month it was a tiny blade.

Getting this box was like a dream come true. I freaking love candies and snacks. Trying Japanese candies and snacks was in my bucket list but when I received it, I was kind of reluctant to try them out Because I thought they would taste a bit like the sushi I had tried before, which I’m not a fan of.

Trying them out was the best decision I made. Because they tasted so good ( Like really good) each and everything was perfect. They contain an excellent selection of savory snacks and sweet candy.

Scroll down to see all the snack and candies that were included in the box.

Caplico Mini

The chocolate on the top had already melted by the time I opened it. As it is really hot in Qatar. This cute icecream couldn’t stay in shape because of the hot sun.

    My thoughts:

    Freedom Japanese box is worth trying. It has amazing selection of snacks and candies. Anyone will like something from this box. I really loved all the Umaibo flavors, Umaka was so yummy. And Caramel corn was good. It is caramel flavored. So it tastes just amazing.

    Last but not the least, my favorite was the Nagewa chips, which looks like rings. I had so much fun shooting with it. I love playing with chips like these. And don’t even talk about the taste. It tasted so freaking good. I can still remember the taste. Makes my mouth water every time I look at this picture. Reminds me of a chips I used to eat when I was a kid called Buggles. I’m not a fan of their chips. But I like playing with it.
