March Dumpling Box

Today I'm posting about Dumpling Box which is a monthly subscription for Asian snacks.  This is there third offering and it just keeps getting better and better!  I love trying food from different cultures. Everyone combines their flavors differently in ways that I would never think of.  Also what I've always liked about Asian desserts is they are very rarely extremely sweet.  They have a sweetness but more on the savory side.

Dumpling Box will send you a box of goodies and a little card that tells you what it's called, where it's from and the ingredients.  Perfect!  The cost of this box is $10.00 a month.

This subscription is currently available in the US only and ships from Belmont, Massachusetts

The good: 

Like Asian snacks: This is a great box if you're a snacker and specifically enjoy snacks from the Asian region.

Price: The price is fair considering these are not easily found products.

Information: I like that they include the information on the product with ingredients.


The not so good:

Skip: There is no option to skip, only cancel.



Love all the dumpling box treasures!

Here is a close up of the Uni Crackers, the cola candy and the sesame powder.


Contents of Dumpling box.

Dandy's Coconut Chocolate Wafers, China

Kasurgai Cola Hard Candy, Japan - This contains fizzy bits that foam to simulate the carbonation of energy drinks

Kasurgai Kiwi Gummy, Japan - This contains fizzy bits that foam to simulate the carbonation of energy drinks

Lotte Sasha Milk Chocolate, Japan

Marukawa Variety Gum, Japan

Okaki No Kyoen Rice Crackers, Japan

Puccho Stick Genki Energy, Japan

Sunlight Royal Sesame Powder, Taiwan - This says to mix with hot water and it will turn into a porridge with a sweet taste, creamy texture and high fiber. She says it's quite popular in China

Tenkei Marshmallow Pudding, Japan

Uni Suki Rice Crackers, Japan - The card says this is sea urchin flavored - I tried this and I have to say they are good but they don't taste like sea urchin to me.

I'm not going to attempt to find a value on these items because it would take me way too much time to even find these items.  In my opinion I think it's worth $10 but I love unique foods.  I'm really curious about the Uni crackers because I've had Uni and I can't imagine what it would taste like in cracker form.  Uni is the soft part of the Sea Urchin and it had a creamy texture which to me is the most unique part about it.  The marshmallow pudding looks and feels just like a regular marshmallow so I'm wondering where the pudding part comes in.  

Verdict: I really enjoy this box.  I think it's unique and fun and I'm going to keep subscribing.

  1. The marshmallow is filled with pudding! And Indian desserts are usually overpoweringly sweet, like super duper sweet. And have you tried Korean Pizza, that's really oddly sweet. But most Asian desserts aren't that sweet.

    1. Ok I tried the marchmallow. The pudding inside was odd but tasted good. I've never had Korean pizza I'm guessing it's not like American pizza
