IMG_20150413_105227Hi-Chew Minis

Smaller version of the gum-like Hi-Chews. It’s pretty much fruit-flavored gum that you can swallow.

It tastes like a chocolate chip cookie but it’s mostly granola. Best tasting granola bar ever? Possibly.

A delicious high quality white chocolate bar, it’s got a light vanilla taste.

IMG_20150413_105023Animal Pancake DIY

I really wish the DIY kits had better instructions, had to watch a YouTube video to make this. Each package has a different animal-shaped pancake pattern. Unfortunately the finished microwaved pancake doesn’t taste very good.

Slightly sour but mostly sweet plum jelly candies.

IMG_20150413_104713Power Squash

Doesn’t contain or taste like squash, it’s pretty much a regular energy drink. Kind of a fruitier Red Bull.

The second DIY kit was much easier. Mix the chocolate sauce & mix the sour frosting. Then you dip the wafer sticks in both and cover with the large sprinkles.

IMG_20150413_104840Glico Kapuriko

This was pretty awesome. It’s a ice cream cone filled with a whipped chocolate. Straight out of the room temperature package it has a ice cream like consistency and taste. There’s also a hint of truffle.

Tiny sugar rock candies.

IMG_20150413_10575112 high quality full-sized candies including a drink and 2 DIY kits for only $30 shipped is a pretty awesome value. I like how in-depth the item descriptions are on the included card.
