OKASHI-BOX .... Japanese Candy Straight from Tokyo

A couple of days ago I received the sweetest surprise Okashi-Box from Japan arrived, full of sweets and goodies.  I literally didn't know which one to try first, they are all delicious and cute. Very "Kawaii", which in Japanese means cute in fact.

The different varieties of Kit Kat were a real change from the usual ones.  There was one with matcha tea, another one raspberry flavored, another one red apple flavor, and an unusual one, with dango filling.  Dango is a ball of mochi covered with an filling. For those of you who don't know Japanese sweets here is what I am talking about:  mochi is sticky rice, and an is a paste made of azuki bean. What an exploding combination!  Really delicious!

Here are some pictures.

  2. Francesca, That's an attractive box of goodies! What I'm most envious of though is your multi-language abilities! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  3. Everything looks delicious. I saw on a television program lately that Japanese people love Kit Kat bars and obviously they do!

  4. I need an Okashi box. Loved your post Francesca.
