As a fan of Japanese mascots for a long time, this subscription box was an absolute delight! Not only do you get snacks, but you get a personalized experience to truly get to know the mascots and the region of Japan that they live in. Not only do you get snacks, but you get a guide explaining the local region, postcards, and buttons.
Not only that, the Mascot Monthly Mix team are wonderful to work with. I needed to cancel my subscription, and they took care of it right away. You can tell each box is packed with love and care, and the designs for the box themselves are very cute. Overall, I'd recommend this service for anyone who's even a little bit curious about Japanese mascots!
Love everything the squid gummies were so delicious my toddler niece and myself finished it in one sitting. Tried the lemon gummies and they are delicious as well. Can’t wait to try the rest of the snacks.
This subscription is both adorable and fun! I’ve gotten three boxes so far, and enjoyed them a lot. I used to live in Japan, and I’ve tried a lot of the Japanese subscription snack boxes out there, and was pretty disappointed by the quality and variety. This box, being actually curated by the mascots, and focusing on the specific area as opposed to just what is fashionable or trendy, makes it an excellent choice for anyone missing Japan or anyone who wants to really experience what people actually snack on there. I love that we get a couple of each of some of the smaller items! Makes it easy for me to share :) the stickers and postcards are also a big plus for me! Love this box!
I've gotten two boxes so far from my subscription and having subscribed to other Japanese snack subscription boxes in the past, this one is my favorite of them! The mascot characters give each box its own flair and personality; bundled alongside the snacks are cute little goodies like buttons and stickers featuring the character. The pamphlet that comes with the box also gives a little tour of places around the mascot's home prefecture and explains what about that mascot's home inspired each snack choice. There's a mix of modern and traditional snacks in the box; From sweet snacks like mochi to savory ones like senbei, there's something for everyone and enough to share. Overall, I've had fun with this box and I'm stoked to get more!
Got this as a gift! Snacks were a nice selection and very yummy. The postcards and stickers were adorable.
My first box finally came and the contents had a variety of snacks, a paper balloon, a sticker, postcard and nice booklet about Mie Prefecture and its mascot Taimee. I love everything in the box except the snacks that are seafood based. I will get the next box, but it there are too many animal products in the box I will probably cancel. I wish there was a vegetarian box.
Ordered on the 3rd and still no shipping notification. Even if you can’t provide tracking # shouldn’t you notify a subscriber something is going on?! Have heard absolutely nothing nor have I received anything in the mail. This is ludicrous
the tour of taste by prefecture is such a cool theme and the snacks are really tasty and there's info that arrives with it is really so great, but the shipping process kind of doesn't ensure that some of the cookies and things will be aesthetically perfect, it comes from far away so I totally understand! I do wish the little cute cartoon on the cookie was intact but overall that's not really a big deal, the box was awesome!
Good box. Arrived quick. Interesting products. I would give about 4.5 stars.
