September Skosh Box

Skoshbox is a new food subscription box for Japanese snacks. Their slogan is "A taste of Japan at your doorstep." I was happy to see this box since Dumpling Box is no more. Skoshbox contains handpicked candies, snacks and accessories straight from Japan for $12 a month with shipping included.

This box is available in the US only and ships from Hawaii

The Good:

Like Asian snacks? This is a super fun snack box and all the products are sourced directly from Japan.

Price: Most of us don't have immediate access to these types of snack so I think $12 is a bargain.

Need a unique gift: The offer a 6 month gift subscription for $72.

The Not So Good:

Skip: There is no option to skip only cancel. 

Contents of the Skoshbox

Koala's March, Chocolate-Creme Filled Koala Biscuit - These are so good and they have a cute koala stamped on the cracker

Chocolate, Ghana or Crunky Chocolates - Just a blah chocolate

Age-Ichi Senbei, Fried Shoyu Rice Cracker - This was good but really hard.

Umaibo, Puffed Corn Snack: Cheese Flavor - A giant cheese puff, I liked it

Matcha Candy, Milky Matcha Candy - This had a very faint matcha flavor. 

Kanten Jelly, Hard Jelly w/Sugar Coating

Popcandy Soda, Soda Flavored Lollipop: Melon, Cola or Ramune

Manju, Steamed Azuki Bean Cake: Plain, Chestnut, Milk, Matcha, or Soba

Ichigo Milk Candy, Strawberry Milk Candies

Fujiya Home Pie, Buttery Flakey Pie - This was plain at first bite but then it grew on me and I liked it.

Kakinotane, Spicy Rice Crackers with Peanuts

Keshigomu, Japanese Eraser

I am not going to try and calculate the value of this box. I would guess the value is not $12 but because these items are not readily available that adds to the value. The way I look at it is if you like this sort of thing and don't want to search for it yourself then it's worth the $12. We love getting this box and trying allt he fun snacks.  

Verdict: I'm happy with this box. I hope it sticks around!
