Your Japanese candies are almost there! This email explains what was in the box, so it could be a bit of a spoiler.
The items in the box are: Iwatsuka Seika Soy Sauce Senbe and DIY Nakayoshi Neru! Neru!
Iwatsuka Seika Soy Sauce Senbei
Unlike most senbei (traditional Japanese crackers) which are hard and crunchy, these unique senbei are soft and moist. While soy sauce flavored, their saltiness also has a hint of sweetness. They come individually wrapped, so they're a perfect sharing and traveling snack.They also happen to be my favorite senbei in Japan, so I hope you enjoy them.
DIY Nakayoshi Neru! Neru!
This strange looking candy is grape and strawberry flavored. While it looks like pudding, it's actually quite fluffy and sticky. "Neru Neru" is another form of Japanese word play. While it can be described as "sticky," it can also mean "to mix," which is something you'll be doing a lot of. The taste is sweet and sour, intensified by the soda flavored toppings you can add to the mix.
Step 1: Remove the triangle cup, pour the purple package marked "1" in the tray. Add one cup of water from your triangle piece, and mix thoroughly with one of your included spoons and it will turn yellow.
Step 2: Add the blue packaged marked "2" into your yellow mix, stir thoroughly and it should turn green.
Step 3: Pour the orange packaged marked "1" into the star piece of your tray. Add one cup of water from your triangle piece, and mix thoroughly with the other (clean) included spoon. It should turn purple.
Step 4: Pour the red packaged marked "2" into your purple mix, stir thoroughly and it should turn pink.
Step 5: Mix in your toppings and enjoy!
