Alas, it is no more.

Why is this discontinued?

Al Gore, inventor of the Internet, was throwing a rollerskating disco inferno in our warehouse last night and decided to invent pocket-sized Man Crates by cutting into eighths our entire supply of Snack Sensei Crates.

Story

Land of the Rising Snacks

We're not sure how timezones work, but we're starting to think Japan might be more than just a few hours ahead of us...375 mph bullet trains, oddly-pleasurable Smart Toilets, and of course, highly-innovative snack flavors.

Since samurai first invented the mid-battle mini-meal known as the "snack," Japanese culture has been pumping out deliciously outrageous flavor combinations that make America's Taco Bell/Dorito "Frankenstein Tacos" taste like boring oatmeal.

The Way of the Snackmurai

Like a deshi bowing to his sensei, we've been intensely studying these sense-bewildering snacks in an attempt to unlock their secrets. Our scientific findings: the Snack Sensei Crate is absolutely delicious.

We hand-selected the absolute best chips, cookies, and candies from our copious taste tests. The Meiji Watapachi Melon Soda tastes like a cotton-candy tornado sucked up a Pop Rocks factory, and the Shigekix Sour Energy Gummies have the sour power of sucking on a sugary battery...in the best of ways.

The English language doesn't have words for all these flavors, but we can confidently say they taste like the future.

Embrace the Mystery

How hyper-intelligent is the snack technology of the Snack Sensei Crate? They have chocolate cookies that look like cheeseburgers! American fast food can't even consistently make cheeseburgers that look like cheeseburgers. (We're looking at you McDonald's.)

We also discovered one of the candies has an edible wrapper! We'll reserve for you the excitement of discovering which one through trial and error.

The Sensei Crate presents the most colorfully-designed and confusingly-delicious snacks on either side of the Pacific. The only mystery that remains: are you braver than a Japanese schoolboy?

    Would happily buy again

    It was hard to say what my favorite snack in this crate was. I loved the matcha pocky and the ramen crunch especially. I don't think there was one item in here I didn't find enjoyable.

    FUN!

    My Husband loved this, it was fun from getting the box to opening the create to enjoying his treats. I felt the quality was good and it was exactly what was advertised. I will be buying from this site again.

    My 15 Yr Old Bro Loved it

    Gave this to my 15 year old brother for xmas... he flipped out and immediately tried to open it... all Christmas present opening stopped for the whole family, as we watched him try to open it for like 2 mins... then I gave him the crow bar...lol. He actually really enjoyed the challenge of opening the crate, and it gave him a sense of pride that he opened his MAN CRATE. He liked it so much that he kept the lid with the logo to put up in his room.

    Dork-a-Licious

    My 19 year old son, who is a gamer and a general all-around dork from the Pokemon old school, was thrilled with this. He ate even the truly odd-ball snacks without hesitation--and he's generally not an adventurous eater. And of course he loved the process of un-crating his snacks and is now the proud owner of his own mini crow-bar.

    Something just for fun

    This crate met the just for fun portion of my husband's Christmas presents. Nice variety of Japanese snacks. A great way to introduce another culture into our mundane one.
