July 2013: Taste of Japan- Tasting Bar from Jungle Stand Review

This is my second Tasting Bar. Like last month, this month follows a theme of the foods being from an Asian nation. ┬áThis month’s box comes from Japan flavor wise.

The Tasting Bars always have 6 tastes and I find that each one is enough for 2 or 3 people to get to try the item. I wasn’t completely blown away by any one taste like I was last month but the box also did not have repulsive dried squid- which is a plus.

Julep Maven Box: California Coast July 2013 Review

In addition, you can pay extra to upgrade to the entire collection for that month or skip a month.

I am in the “it girl” style profile and it was the only one getting three polishes and no beauty product so I decided to stick with it for July.
