The September 2017 Freedom Japanese Market included the following items:

~Hara Dekita! DIY: This DIY kit lets you make mini candy apples! We never have the best luck with these, but they are fun to do.

~Umaibo Tonkatsu and Umaibo Mental: Tonkatsu tastes like pork cutlet sauce while mental tastes like pollack fish roe.  The Tonkatsu was great, but the mental?  That’s a nope.

~Cheese Arare: Cheese Arare are bite-sized cheese flavored rice crackers.  I loved these.  Very flavorful!


~Orange Queen: Orange Queen is an orange flavored yogurt, and my kids loved it.  I am not sure how it doesn’t need refrigeration, but it tasted great!

~Caramel Corn: These aren’t caramel corn popcorn, they are puffed corn. This month’s flavor is fruit au lait.  They were interesting.  Almost like a smoothie?

~Kaki no Tane: These are rice /peanut mix crackers flavored with a unique saucy flavor.  They are crunchy and on the smaller side, but pack a ton of flavor.

~Champagne Cider: These alcohol-free candies are champagne cider flavored. They actually do taste like champagne and are quite delicious.

~Pineapple Chips: I’d eat these every day if they were available near me!  The flavor is unexpected but so good!

~Choco Daifuku: This is a sweet mochi with a chocolate filling.  Not my favorite treat, but that’s mainly due to the mochi texture.


~Kinbaku Iru: These soda flavored candies each come with a tiny fortune!

~Bonus: Candy Mic: This microphone shaped container is filled with ramune candy!  Ramune is a carbonated soft drink popular in Japan.

~Little Gang: If you like pop rocks, you’ll love these!

I didn’t do a cost breakdown on this box, but I loved the variety!  What do you think of Freedom Japanese Market?  If you are interested in subscribing, you can check them out here.
