The shadows of Gotham City are no place for a child but Damian Wayne is no ordinary child. Now bearing the mantle of Robin, he blazes a headstrong and sometimes reckless trail alongside his father, Batman. While investigating a crime scene, Robin encounters a mysterious figure, Talon, who leads him on a life-altering course through the depths of Gotham’s secret society, known as The Court of Owls. It’s a dangerous journey that will force Batman and Robin to face their most dangerous adversary, each other!

Batman vs. Robin Blu-rayTM and Blu-rayTM Deluxe Edition contain the following special features:
  • Gotham’s City Secret: The Mythic Court of Owls - The Court of Owls is the secret society that directly connects the past of Gotham to the current city. Are they silent guardians that are the noble benefactors or are they the malevolent force that manipulates a city toward their grand design?

Taste Japan December Subscription Box Review

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

In December I received a box full of Japanese snacks/candies from Taste Japan.

Taste Japan is a service which allows people all over the world taste a little bit of Japan – every month! We are a subscription service that send out a box of Japanese goodies once a month. The box is  £15 per month (approx $27 CDN) with no hidden costs or shipping fee.
They do ship to Canada and the U.S and when you order the currency conversions will be handled automatically during payment.

Here is what was in my box:

Otona no Amasa Matcha KitKat-  Green tea Kitkat were so yummy.  I am not a fan of green tea but these KitKats were good. Even my husband liked it. 

Puchipasteru are cute and so darn good.

Roll Candy- Strawberry flavoured strip of gummy candy. They are kinda like Fruit Rollups.  Similar taste I think . They were good.

Tomato Pretz- They are yummy tomato flavoured crispy biscuit sticks.  

Dorachoco is a traditional Japanese snack (doryaki) usually filled with red beans but this is a sweeter chocolate edition. It was yummy.

Kuro Gaki Biiru is a sweet beer for kids and adults alike. Put in a mug ,add water and mix.  No alcohol in it.

Chouhimoque-is a yummy coca cola flavoured stringy gum lace.  Both my husband and I really liked this one. 

Gummirando is a gummy DIY kit.  It was ok but I think this was the best DIY kit I have tried so far. 

Umaibo is a big teriyaki flavoured corn puff. I have had these before and I like that.

Collon- This was the Halloween edition .It is crispy mixed berry cream bite and I loved them.

Do I think it is worth it? Well if you want to try out different Japanese treats/candies and aren't afraid to try them then I think .  I just might purchase a subscription box or 2 in the near future .
