Q: Im allergic to gluten and dairy, is there anyway I can make sure I only get gluten and dairy free snacks? Asked by Alexandria S., May 2020
Hi there, thanks for reaching out, honestly, we don't actually offer any dietary specific crates. we cannot assure if our candies are gluten and dairy free. If you have specific allergies, then we advise against subscribing to our crates. Thank you.
This answer sucks
There is no such allergy towards gluten, if youre asking if its diet friendly, its candy.

Q: How long after purchase will it arrive? Asked by Abbie L., July 2019
Hi Abbie! Hope your staying safe. Upon order we ship the crates via DHL and will only take 5-7 days before it will arrive in your location. But of course, depends on where you live. If you have other questions or just wanted to say Hi! we’re available anytime through email. Reach out and we’re more than happy to help.
They ship on a "rolling schedule" which according to their blog means if you pay by the 14th, it ships on the 20th. Pay between the 15th and 23rd, ships on the 30th. Pay after the 23rd but before the end of the month, ships on the 3rd of the following month. They do email you when it ships, but they don't provide tracking numbers. I get the email that my crate shipped on the 3rd, the first month it...
Takes up to a month. They will usually Bill the next one before that one shows up. I stopped subscribing because half the time the box was busted up in shipping and they refused to do anything about it.
I have the DHL premium and it exceeded my expectations!!! I already can't wait for next month. It came really quickly to.
Hi Leslie! Glad you to hear about your great experience. We're so happy that your happy with the service that we have provided. Let us know if we can ever help with anything! Cheers!
I only have gotten one box which was recieved March 4th with payment in February. It is now April 7th, and have been charged for March and April for $80. Yet have recieved nothing, I understand that shipping is delayed but there has been no communication on their end.
I recieved all the boxes about a month after this review. The company was having difficulties shipping due to the pandemic. I subscribed again because it is a really good box and we have alot of fun testing & trying all the goodies picked out.
Hi Lisa! Thanks for the update! We appreciate the support. If you have any questions, we’re available anytime through our support email. Please reach out and we’re more than happy to help.
My team at work got a 3-month subscription to the premium box for a coworker's birthday. He loves snacks, trying new stuff and is interested in Japanese culture, so it was a perfect fit. He thought it was so cool! He unboxed it during a virtual team meeting so we could all enjoy it. Lots of little things, including a bag of wasabi flavored Doritos, which he got such a kick out of. Would definitely recommend this box!
Hi Shanna! Thanks for the feedback. We're thrilled you're loving your snacks. Enjoy it! Have a great day! \(★ω★)/
I booked a year long subscription of the Premium Crate. Some of it is good, but a lot of it is just not my taste. Like sweet potato or green tea candy. After about 6 months I decided to switch to the Umai Crate. Again, some of it was really good, but there's a lot of shrimp or seaweed flavored items which are not my thing.
I cancelled the subscription but here's the thing- You don't get a confirmation email saying it's cancelled. So you have nothing but your word that it was cancelled. And then boom, your stuck with a $330 charge on your credit card, and an additional $60 shipping charge due to corona. And support will just tell you that you didn't cancel and there are no refunds. So I would either stay away or remove your credit card information after you subscribe.
Awesome product. Some reviews may be misleading like my previous one. The delivery is prompt and product is amazing. Sometimes people have bad days so they will post bad reviews like I did prior. My apologies guys. This is a great product. I’ll be subscribing and patiently waiting for my delivery like I should have in first place. Best wishes all!
Hi Crystal! Thanks for your comments! Don't worry about your previous review. We get used to it already. YAy!! ヽ(o＾▽＾o)ノ We definitely love hearing feedback with our products each month. Glad you’re enjoying our crate! Have a wonderful day! ;)
This box is terrible. I ordered my first box on April 20th it was shipped April 28th. Its now July 28th it has not arrived. I also was charged for May crate as well. I got a notification that it shipped on May 13th. Still didn’t get that one either. It has been 12 weeks since ordered my April crate and 10 weeks since the may one was supposedly shipped! These people are ridiculous I tried to get in touch with them they said it should be on its way. Please be careful people.
We love it !
Hi Yuval! We love you too. Appreciate your feedback. Have a great day!
I’m happy that I decided to go with this box this is my first box August 2019 premium it is worth the money it’s super fun and it’s super delicious
This subscription is amazing! My daughter loves japanese snacks and candies and when i saw this was available i decided to surprise her and i have no regrets. She’s so happy:)
I liked the idea of this box and there were some neat items in it. The issue was that once the value of the items was taken into account the overall value of the box wasn't there like it was for other boxes I have ordered. Not a bad box but better value exists.
