Freedom Japanese Market is a online retailer specializing in you guessed it, Japanese items. They have their own subscription box that’s a monthly delivery of Japanese snacks and candies. Everything is shipped directly from and most of the items are exclusive to Japan.

The box is medium-sized and weighs about a pound.

Pretz are usually savory Pocky. Well, usually savory anyways. This flavor of Pretz was a light sugar glaze. Unlike Pocky it wasn’t super sweet.

Puffed caramel corn with a sweet peach flavor. Different from any caramel corn I’ve ever had and would also make a good cereal.

The Russian Roulette of gums. One of the 3 pieces is super sour while the other two taste like cola.

$25 for 10 full-size snacks including a huge bag of caramel corn and 3 small candies is a pretty awesome deal. The origami whale is a nice personal touch. I gotta say, I really like when the Japanese and other import boxes include the visual guide to let you know what you’re eating.

If you’re a fan of Japanese candy you have to check out Freedom Japanese Market. You can also send their boxes as gifts which is a pretty cool option.
