We were able to review another awesome box from Try The World and this month is Japan!
All of us here were so excited when we opened this month’s Try The World box and discovered it was from Japan!! I have always wanted to visit there one day and my teen is also obsessed with everything Japan. We couldn’t dig through this box any faster to check out all of the amazing goodies we were going to try out.
What’s In The Box
- Culture Guide: Japan – Gives you information on the country, including recipes, music lists, movies, poems and more!
- Info Card – Lists each item in your box along with how they are traditionally used.
- AOI Tea (Blueberry Matcha Tea) – I am a matcha tea lover and so I was happy to see a package of some with blueberry in it. This tea was so delicious that I drank it up within just a few days. I have to find out how to order more because I absolutely loved it!
- Otafuku Foods (Okonomiyaki Kit) – This is an omelet-like pancake and is a popular dish throughout Japan.
- Morinaga (Milk Caramels) – This recipe dates back to 1899 when Morinaga was founded. Very delicious and another item that was gone in a matter of minutes!
- Takaokaya (Seaweed Snack) – Wild Seaweed harvested from the ocean then dried by using an ancient process similar to papermaking. My teen enjoyed this one while the rest of us did not.
- Ishiguro (Yamaimo Soba Noodles) – Long noodles made with yam extract and buckwheat and are flexible, strong and nutty. Typcially served in hot broth or as a cold salad dressed with ponzo sauce (below).
- Kasugai (Lychee Gummy Candies) – Gummy candies with flavor and texture of lychees. Another yummy one!
- Wadakan (Umami Ponzo Sauce) – Soy sauce with citrus. Another favorite and the teen and I find any reason to add a dash of this to our food! We even added it our Lo Mein we had ordered the other day.
