Hello Sanrio Mystery Snack Box

This was a bit of a random pick up while browsing the mall with the family this past weekend. We spotted a display of imported snack boxes in a FYE store and picked this one out because it was Sanrio themed and was the heaviest of the boxes. My husband and I love imported snacks, and this box was around $35, so we decided to give it a try!

What We Got

  • 7 Kit Kat (cranberry & almond)
  • 2 Ramune (original & strawberry)
  • 2 Wafer Cookie Boxes (chocolate & strawberry)
  • 2 Yan Yan Sticks (chocolate & strawberry)
  • 1 Box Lotte Choco Pies (6 pies)
  • 1 Bag Rice Cracker (14 strawberry)
  • 1 ABC Cookies (vanilla shortbread)
  • 1 Yaokin Big Marshmallow
  • 1 Maruta Mini Ramune Bottle (lemon)
  • 1 Yaokin Pandaro (butter cookies)
  • 1 Furuta Dodeka Wafer Bar (chocolate)
  • 1 Yaokin Sweet & Sour Paper Candy (cola)

Thoughts
I LOVE Sanrio and I love snacks! We were really excited and pleased that we got so many snacks in the box, including some Ramune soda! A few of the snacks in here are ones that I have tried before, yan yan and rice crackers were some of my favorite snacks growing up so I was pleased to get a few. However a lot of them are a complete surprise for both of us.

We snacked on a few already, each snack had an English sticker label so we didn’t have to guess what each item was. Also included were expiration dates which was helpful for a snack box. Everything was in good shape and packaged well. The choco pies were a bit dry compared to the moonpies I’m used to. I also enjoyed the cranberry and almond kit kats that were included, it’s a unique flavor that I wish was available in the west (though I think that can be said about most Japanese kit kat flavors). I shared the vanilla cookies with my young daughter and they were surprisingly heavy on the vanilla, but it was a nice natural flavor that is entirely different from vanilla cookies you typically find in the U.S.

We’re quite happy for this box despite being a bit pricey. With the amount of items included I think that it is a pretty decent value considering everything is imported, and it was just cute to have so many Sanrio themed items. This has been one of the better snack boxes that I’ve tried with treats that were overall pretty enjoyable.

  1. I think I saw this while browsing snack boxes! I also love Sanrio and snacks (handy when you’re in school, haha) and it looks like the $35 is well worth it for the amount of snacks you got in the box (especially since this is imported). I think if I picked this up I’d love it as well – there’s very few KitKat flavors (mainly because in the West we seem to be more judgemental about unique combination flavors that are normalized elsewhere).

    1. If you enjoy snack boxes then you should try it! The kids and I really enjoyed it. Totally agree on kit kats, such a shame that there is just no inclination for the western market to experiment. I recently tried a mint and peach kit kat that was so delicious!

  2. Imported snacks is one of the things I miss now that I am vegan. So much milk powder in Japanese snacks. It sounds like you got a decent amount for imported snacks that are super cute. It is probably the same or more than some of the vegan cuts boxes that I use to get- and nothing was imported from that.

    1. Aww, a shame that imported snacks are out, but understandable. You are absolutely right about the milk powder! I enjoy trying snacks imported from all over, it’s interesting to see the different taste palettes that are common compared to here.
