October was a special month here at ZenPop. We celebrated our third anniversary with a mega birthday giveaway! Congratulations to our five winners, we hope you enjoy your prizes.
To celebrate our birthday, all packs included a sticker and a postcard of our mascot, Luna.
Let's discover what was in this month's ZenPop subscription boxes!
You're invited to a fun baking class, taught by some of the most loved characters in Japan: Sumikko Gurashi. They are cute little creatures who enjoy living quietly in a corner, as their name indicates. You will find a set of 4 Sumikko Gurashi items, as well as a Pikachu masking tape and a magnet bookmark with a Sanrio character. Our bunny mascot Luna has also joined the baking class, with the first original ZenPop designed stationery!
What do you think of when we say ''Harajuku''? Maybe the words fashion, kawaii or neon will pop in to your mind. This month's combination of snacks and noodles will give you a taste of the wild, unique and colorful variety you'd find during your dream trip to Harajuku, one of Tokyo's most dynamic neighborhoods. Enjoy extra creamy tomato ramen, rainbow ramune candy and even a pastel pink taiyaki filled with berry chocolate!
Last month we took you on a trip to the warm south of Japan. Temperatures are getting colder now, so it is time to discover the bounty and rich flavors of northern Japan! You will see, Hokkaido is a wonderful land of food. Miso ramen was invented up there, and they also came up with the genius idea of adding butter and corn as toppings. You'll get to taste it for yourself! A Power Mochi Udon and a Potato Yakisoba are also included in this Northern Japan Pack. Pure delight for your taste buds.

Here in Japan we always have amazing seasonal treats. This month we got you more autumn-flavored traditional goodies such as chestnut yokan (made from adzuki beans), senbei rice crackers and a fish-shaped taiyaki, for a fun and tasty experience. Also a special version of Japan's best cookie (from the famous Country Ma'am), and a seasonal mont blanc flavor of the popular classic Caramel Corn made it inside. Lots more delectable treats await. Enjoying seasonal snacks in a cozy home with people you love is just the best!
