Japan Funbox sent me their “Mini Box,” which contains 5-7 items for $14.99/month, free worldwide shipping. They have two other levels – the “Original Box,” which contains 15-20 items (1 DIY kit guaranteed, 1 special item guaranteed, such as a soda, toy, or special DIY), for $32.99/month, and the “Family Box,” which contains 25-30 items (2 DIY kits guaranteed, 2 special items guaranteed) for $49.99/month.

Upon quick glance, the difference between Japan Funbox and some other boxes I’ve reviewed, like Japan Candy Box, and Japan Crate, seems to only be how many items you want sent per month. They all vary and have different sizing. I haven’t calculated each subscription box across the board, but the Japan Funbox “Mini Box” is a nice, small, introductory size to get you going, and the “Family Box” is one of the biggest you can get.

Whistle candy was always fun because it made a lot of noise. I seem to recall that it was gum, not candy, but, I guess I now have the chance to find out again!

Okay, I opened this immediately after shooting photos. PIZZA POTATO chips. Oddly, they have a very BUTTERY flavor…

    I think whistle candies are always made with hard candy.

      It makes sense. ALtho I seem to recall mine crumbling. I’ll just have to eat this one at some point.

    Do they taste anything like Pizza Pringles? Cuz that’s my favorite flavor of Pringle.
