What was included?
Above is the whole box contents
Shio Yakisoba Ramen
A nice big tub of yakisoba ramen, it was super yummy even though I couldnt really describe the flavour. It had some green vegetables in it too, which was yummy but i have no idea what it was.
Charumera Shio Ramen
A smaller cup of shio ramen, with chicken, pork, scallop & basil flavours. With egg, cabbage and green onion in the cup the flavour was so delicious and fresh! Love!
Jagabee Salt & Sesame Oil
Well if you watched my unboxing video, you will know i thought these were ramen! They are infact potato chips hiding in a ramen cup! They are similar to the french fries chips we get here in Australia, but they are thicker and have a strong sesame flavour. They were pretty delicious
Wasabi Kaki No Tane
Kind of like an asian pretzel snacks, crackers & peanuts. The perfect snack paired with a nice cold beer
Puchi – Margarita Pizza Chips
I thought these woukd be like rice crackers, but they were more like baked chips, super yummy with a pizza/tomato flavour
A weird sweet that we dont get here, its like a big rice bubble with milk chocolate soaked in. I think its actually a corn puff though. Pretty tasty but a weird texture
Don Don Yaki – Sauce Flavour
Its a puffed rice snack (i think) with some strong onion, seaweed & bonito flavours. I cant decide wether i like these or not
Takenono No Sato
Its primarily a bamboo shaped biscuit, dipped in chocolate. Super delicious and crunchy
Umaibo – Salami Flavour
This is one big Cheezel! But instead of cheese flavour it was salami, i wish we had these here as it was so moreish and tasty!
Well id have to say this is yet another banging box from Zenpop! As a lover of ramen i was excited to see what japan had to offer, and i was far from disappointed. I feel like Japan really respects its noodles, as both of the ramens i received tasted authentic and quality. The noodles we get here are often simple and taste like fake boring flavours. The ramens both had cabbage in them, which really came back to life with the hot water, and brought a nice refreshing veggie to the mix.
The snacks from most international countries are always hit and miss, we are so used to our own flavours that other countries cuisine can be quite perplexing to out palette. All the sweet items i received this month were delicious, as were the chip type snacks. The only one i didnt really enjoy was the Don Don Yaki – Sauce Flavour, which was just a bit much for my simply Aussie taste buds. I love trying these new things though, and seeing how different the cuisine flavours are.
The zenpop box is always amazing value! Coming all the way from japan in a SUPER fast shipping time, mine arrived within the week while some of my Australian boxes i order around the same time have yet to arrive. Very impressed with the shipping and value of this months Midnight snacks ramen & sweets mix box.
Do yourself a favour and try one of these bad boys, you wont be disappointed!
