For Christmas, my Brother got me a 6 month subscription to a snack box company called Bokksu. I know subscription boxes have been around for a while, but I have never tried any of them. So I was excited to open this first box.
The first thing that I noticed is that this box has a lot of snacks in it! It's not a skimpy assortment. Also, many of the snacks come as a pair so you can share it with someone else. There's a wide variety with some of the snacks being savory, some sweet and some a combination. I've tried about half of the snacks and each one is very enjoyable and unique. One of the snacks (a white chocolate infused strawberry) is a Bokksu special.
I really like the pamphlet magazine that comes with the box and explains the location and information about each snack. Most of the snack packages are entirely in Japanese so having this info is great since I don't read/speak Japanese. The overall layout is also very beautiful and aesthetic. Dietary and allergy information is also contained here.
I've been fascinated by Japan and Japanese products for a long time so this box was a perfect gift. I'm very impressed with the quality of the box, information material and the snacks themselves. It also helps support independent snack makers from all over Japan. I am not affiliated with this company in any way, but I really recommend this as a gift box for any Japanese snack fans. I can't wait for next month's box!
