It's wintertime here in Minnesota and we've been spending a lot more time indoors. I'm always on the lookout for new family activities to do, and recently I came across TokyoTreat.
TokyoTreat is a monthly subscription box that sends snacks directly from Japan. I love subscription boxes like these because they give us a chance to try new things that we normally wouldn't buy ourselves. It's also a fun way to introduce my kids to different cultures and flavors!
In this post, I'll share with you our TokyoTreat box, our review, and everything you need to know about the subscription!
Disclosure: TokyoTreat did provide us with a sample box but all opinions are my own!

What is TokyoTreat?
TokyoTreat is a monthly subscription box that sends treats and snacks from Japan to your house. Each month the boxes have different themes and you'll receive 17 full size snacks. Unlike other subscription boxes, TokyoTreat also does include a full-size drink in addition to the snacks.
Pricing for the boxes varies depending on how long you subscribe. The month-to-month option is $35 a month and then the annual plan is only $31/month (paid annually). All the boxes get the same amount of snacks inside so really the only difference is the savings in price.
All plans can be canceled at any time.
Inside the TokyoTreat Box
When my TokyoTreat box arrived the first thing I noticed that it actually was shipped directly from Japan, unlike some other subscription boxes. The box itself was also pretty big too!
I was so excited to open the box and see what snacks they sent! TokyoBox also includes a little pamphlet to explain what each snack is, and a little description of it since all the packaging is in Japanese.
I received the fall box and inside I found:
KitKat Mont Blanc
Koala's March Butter and White Chocolate
Umaibo Cinnamon Apple Pie
Strawberry Ice Cream DIY Candy Kit
Pocky Heartful Blueberry
Karamucho Kumamoto Chili Tomato
Chunky x Demon Slayer Collab Choco
Constellation Chocolate Cookie
Sour Paper Candy Grape
Porickey German Potato
Yakisoba Shop Taro
Texas Corn Okonomiyaki Flavor
Sparrow Egg Crackers
I was really impressed with the variety of snacks inside the box. This month had a lot of different types of snacks that I've never tried before and it was fun to do a tasting with my family. The theme of the box was Fall, and most of the treats either had fall packaging or were fall flavors - like apple pie!
I also like that TokyoTreat is also building a community. Inside the pamphlet that describes the snacks is also information on monthly contests they have for fans, and ways for people to connect with others. This is the first subscription box that I've seen that really works hard to connect fans and has fun monthly contests.
My only concern with TokyoTreat is I'm not sure how unique the boxes would be after a few months - after all, wouldn't you run out of treats to send? I'm sure it would take a while before you got duplicate snacks, but it's still something to think about.
Another thing that I did notice is that there isn't a way to order more of a snack if you end up really liking it. It would be nice if TokyoTreat had a little shop so you could buy more of the snacks you like.
Overall I do recommend the TokyoTreat box! It's a fun way for the whole family to try new and unique snacks and treats.
