A Taste Of Japan: May 2016 Tokyo Treat Small Box

Hello fellow machiers. Yesterday I made a post inquiring weather you all would be interested in an unboxing and taste test of the Tokyo Box subscription and while there were not a huge number of replies, what replies I did get indicated some interest and since my first box arrived today I shot a video along with my Roommate April for your enjoyment.

If you enjoyed this video let me know and I will do more each moth as the new boxes come in.

Tokyo Treat Box

Hey Guys and Gals,

I have recently signed up for the Tokyo Treat Subscription service, which is essential a box full of 5 to 7 candies or snack foods from Japan. My Subscription is the cheapest one offered by the way, Here is what I want to know, would you guys like me to review these boxes for you ? Tell you what is in the box along side of pictures, and what I, my room mate, and my best friend and his wife think of candies/snacks found inside ? If there is interest in this I might consider upgrading to a more expensive subscription for a large box each month. My first box is due within the next couple days, so let me know what you think of this idea.  If my friends consent I might even record it instead of doing photos.
