Ring in the New Year with our FIRST EVER anime-themed box! We don't normally do themed boxes because it's quite difficult to procure snacks of certain themes and usually very limited, but we wanted to kick off the New Years with something awesome. Thankfully, our hard working team managed to make this happen! We decided to choose Pokemon to be the theme of our first box in January, because who doesn't love Pokemon?!
Say hello the our special item of the month! Original Pokemon collectibles were included in this month's box to guard your yummy treats. Up to 12 different Pokemons you could receive. Which one did you get? ^__^ Hopefully you got the one you wanted!
