Candysan is an online store based in Japan that will deliver snacks, sweets, and collectible Gashapon items worldwide.
The nice thing about them is that they offer singles. Like, if I want to try out some potato chips from Japan, I don’t need to buy a pack of 8, I can just buy one. This is a great way to sample snacks from Japan.
This one is a baked snack that I bought from Candysan. The brand is bourbon and it’s a cake-like treat. Excellent taste, texture, and it was still slightly moist. 9/10, would buy again!
This one is my favorite – Chocolate Pocky with Azuki (red beans). It doesn’t sound too appetizing but I was blown away by the unusual and yummy flavor when I ate it. 10/10, the most perfect Pocky flavor I have ever tried.
This one is a Super Mario candy. It was very ordinary tasting, just a regular piece of candy with fruit flavors. Tasted like Life Savers. The packaging is great though, and it was a hit with my 8-year-old nephew. 6/10, very ordinary but good for themed or kids parties.
As for the Candysan website, it’s very easy to navigate and buying is straightforward. They have a good number of items for sale. The type of stuff they have are: candy, snacks, gashapon toys/items, limited edition figures/plushies, bento items, etc. They have a selection of the most popular Japanese snacks such as well-known brands like Pocky, Kit Kats, Meltykiss, and those DIY candy kits. I also noticed that they have a sort of mystery grab bag for sale where they give you a selection of snacks and sweets from their inventory but I personally prefer to pick my own stuff.
