Hi Everyone,

Since we haven't been able to travel abroad, we have been missing Japan a lot. The food, snacks, drinks, the whole lot. Therefore we made another order from the Travel Japan Market Place up in the Queensland and it has finally arrived. This online stores a wide range of hard to find cup noodles and snacks so even though we have to pay for a delivery fee of $10, we still don't mind ordering from them. We also want to make it worthwhile for our delivery so we try to buy a bit more so the delivery charge gets evened out.

This time, we are mainly ordering the premium cup noodles. These are all from the premium 7-11 line in Japan and gosh they were expensive. I'm sure they don't cost $8AUD each in Japan but we still wanted to try what the fuss is about. I will make some review posts on the cup noodles to give you my opinion if they are worth the price or not. Apart from cup noodles, we also got 1 pack of 7-11 snack as the other flavours are all sold out. We find with this store, once they get a new shipment, the new stock gets sold out very quickly so we were only able to buy 1 of these potato crisps.

Drink wise we got two bottles of the bitter caramel boss drink (never seen this one in Sydney). Not sure if I would like caramel flavour but hubby wanted to try it so why not. I finally got my hands on the sakura royal milk tea which is sold out in the Asian stores around me so I'm glad I could get my hands on them here. I love the original blue version so I wonder what the sakura flavour would taste like. Finally a bit of a splurge. I bought two big bottles of a sparkling drink with Pokemon and Sanrio theme for the kids to try. I made sure the aren't alcoholic so we will open them on a special occasion (maybe next week which is Easter coming up). All this including postage is under $90AUD which is more than I would normally like to pay but for a special treat, it is definitely worth trying out some of these cool snacks and drinks to fill the gap of not being able to travel to Japan as yet.

That's very interesting that there is a market large enough to support those imports at those prices. My guess is the ramen runs about $3-4. I know the crisps are about $1 and the Boss is about $1.20.

The combinis are super competitive with each other, but not on price. Prices are the same at all the comibinis, but the varieties on each items are different and that is where the competition is. I don't go to 711 much, but Famima has the best fried chicken and Lawson has the best coffee.

Yeah I remember the chips and boss coffees were super cheap when we were in Japan literally before the lockdown. But I think the bottles were a little bit more expensive than the cans?

There is definately a market here for Japanese snacks, its just the matter of price as we haven't been able to travel so 2 years without Japanese snacks is painful. I know we are paying a premium but to get it sent from Japan and all is still work it.

Oh I love the Lawson and family mart fried chicken, its like a ritual just to stop by every morning to get one for breakfast and even for supper after a late night, its great as a snack.... sooooo juicy!!

Hmmm... that $67.00 USD... average of $6.7.
That's pretty expensive!
Well, considering they are imported!
Amazon charges premium rates for grocery items.
Good to know!

Unfortunately amazon doesn't have this variety so we have to resort from order at these online stores or whatever our local Asian store sells which isn't much compared to these online stores. Drinks are heavy so I get the postage does take a bit but the pack of chips was a bit expensive BUT I still wanted to try it hahahaha
