Grape Jelly

This was a tube of jelly, like Jello. It was in a plastic tube where you cut off one end and just drink it right out. It was grape flavor and didn't taste that bad. Interesting shape as if I was having this out and about I would probably get some funny looks here. I guess not in Japan though. This was received with a Japan Crate. I probably wouldn't buy it since I never really get jelly.

Asahi Dry Zero Beer

Well when you see a "beer" with Zero you might think it is zero calories but what this really is is ZERO Alcohol! If you like that dry Asahi beer taste and don't care whether it has alcohol or not then its good. It taste just like a bottle of Asahi but there is no beer. Was a little pricey though for a non-alcoholic bottle of beer. It's like Japan's O'douls. Well if you really do enjoy the beer taste of Asahi but don't care for the alcohol then go for it but I'll pass.

Carabao Energy Drink

This is an energy drink. Not that big it is 8.5 fl oz can. Same shape just shorter. Taste a lot like some Red Bull but it is Philippine I believe. Nice green with a bull skull on the front. I always saw it in the store so I figure I give it a try to keep me awake. Energy drinks usually don't do it for me and I can sleep after having caffeine and energy drinks. If you enjoy drinking red bull give this a try, just from somewhere different.

JT Mizore Nashi Pear Drink

Oh man, Pear! So this is a pear flavor drink in a aluminum can. Decent amount and it is essentially pear juice I guess but it does have par pulp in the can. I am not a big pear eater but this was enjoyable. Close to apple flavoring but pear obviously. Close to clear looking but good. If you like pear get this, you wont be mad.

Top Pokemon Eawase Sticker Gum

This is a lot like the Mario Kart gum that I reviewed. A soft little white square of gum that has that ramune flavor. It wasn't that bad. Really soft when you start to eat it and breaks up but gets together after a few chews. It has one little package inside but you get some Pokeman stickers!

Full Gurt Candy

These are hard candies that had a filled inside with yogurt really. It was weird if you started to chew on the hard candy to break it up. I am not sure if I was a big fan of these and probably would never buy them. They came with our Japan Crate. Individually packaged inside with 2 flavors, grape and mango. Mango wasn't really that bad but I felt like the hard candy was rough on my tongue as it sat in my mouth. I'll pass.

Sangaria Kid's Beer

This is not beer because it is for kids. The idea was that Sangaria made this so kids can drink with their families at celebration or family parties but not drink alcohol. I would rather drink this then some of the Japanese beers. This taste a lot like a cream soda. It is delicious and I already want more. Really refreshing and creamy. If you shake it it will get foamy. Great idea but I'm not a kind and they made it tasty enough for me to get it if I went to a bar.

Koikeya Scone Barbecue Crackers

Wow, if you like snacking on chips give these a try. These are like BBQ but Japanese BBQ. They are pretty good and we went through them pretty fast. They are shaped like Cheetos with the cheetah. They are powdery on the outside from the coating but crunch a lot like Cheetos. The taste is good and not overwhelming. Great snack, grab a bag.

Kasugai Fruit gummy Candy Assort. Lychee, Mango and Strawberry

I like getting a box or bag of a few varieties so I don't have to buy all individual to try. I really enjoy the mango and strawberry ones. I love those flavors and the Kasugai gummies are always my number one gummy producer from Japan. They are individually packaged which means you can control yourself and the rest wont get stale when you open  the large bag. Lychee might be a flavor that I just don't always agree with. I like it as bubble tea but not as gummies. I also found out I don not like it as a hard candy either. I still always will say good things about these gummies as there are a lot of flavors but I'm not feeling the lychee ones. Maybe you will.

Tea Time Earl Grey Milk Tea

Surprisingly good. this is Milk Tea that comes in a wax carton like you would get Orange juice in or what not. Not a huge portion but still enough to share with the girl. We try all the Milk Tea that we can find and hope it to be as good as Royal Milk Tea from Kirin. This wasn't that good but still close. We refrigerated it to cool it before we tried it which I always recommend. I would try it again if I didn't want  to try all that I see to compare. I give it a pass!

Koriyama's Deliciously Light Cheese Cake

You know, we got this one time and let it sit just a "little" to long and it molded on us. So we bought one again to try. It sure is soft and light but really the flavor was so light that I wasn't getting anything from it, like bread. The price was a tad high and it does melt in your mouth like it says but I am fine not having  it again. I'll pass on this for some of the D-Plus rolls.

Kopiko Coffee Candy

Kopiko has a few coffee like hard candies. We have had the cappuccino before and it was great. If you like hard candies and coffee flavor these are pretty good. We liked the cappuccino ones so much that we got these to try and enjoy. So far if you need a coffee flavor hard candy this is your fix. I would recommend it to most people. I actually let people try some while I am out on meets or friends, they always like them (assuming you are a coffee fan).

Superstring Q Gummy

More gummies! This is a 5 foot long piece of gummy that isn't really big. Pretty thin and it has green and purple grape on each end. Not that bad tasting either, pretty good. I didn't have all of it in one sitting though since I was trying a few other the snakes that I have. It isn't sticky really on the teeth as you eat it and its a little stiff. Not sure if it was because it was getting stale, it was in date by a few months.

If you like gummies go for it, I have nothing really against it but I would have to be in the mood to want nothing but gummy.
