Nothing brightens your day more than an unexpected care package in the mail! You may be a starving college student or a brave soul who recently moved to another state with limited Asian contact. Maybe you’re not even Asian; maybe you just need a dose of Asian sweets in your system daily. Whomever you are, if you love buying bulks of Asian confectionery to fulfill your munchies (because let’s face it, while they may be delicate, Asian snacks are so darn satisfying) or you know someone who will appreciate a nice goody bag, here are some pre-packed snack options that might help you out!
**Some of them are a bit pricey, but worth a try if you don’t have the energy or the time to compile a care package on your own or want to try a variety of exotic Asian snacks

Shin Ramen Cup Noodle, Umaibo, Hi-Chew, French Pie, Choco Pie, Pocky, etc…All of your favorite Asian snacks in one!

Premium Japanese Snack Box
If you’re anything like me, you probably know that the Japanese brand Meiji chocolates are the best chocolates out there.
