By now, you've probably understood that if you want a box with more varieties, our monthly box is probably the best choice. If, on the other hand, you wanted to have fewer sweets but want to try the fanta (or other drink) from Japan, Candysan box was made for you!
Announced on Twitter and then on Twitch at the beginning of January 2023, Candysan has ceased its activities of sending Japanese candies and snacks, after 10 years of good and loyal service.
