October Skoshbox

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. 

October Skoshbox

Contents of the Skoshbox

Black Sesame Mochi - chewy mochi that's bursting with black sesame flavor

Sparkling Ball Candy - large candy in lemon, strawberry, grape or apple flavors

Niigata Rice Crackers - thin shoyu rice crackers - tastes just like yaki-onigiri

Endo Green Pea - fried green pea snack

Soft Salad Senbei - Baked puffy rice crackers with a light savory taste

Nori Wrapped Senbei - crunchy shoyu senbei wrapped in crispy nori

Ume Cracker - baked cracker with ume (pickled plum) glaze coating

Chocolate Puff - puffed chocolate snack with chocolate coating

Fizzy Soda Candy - hard fizzy candies in apple, grape, and pineapple flavors

Matcha Gum Pack - mochi textured matcha green tea gum sticks - I liked this. It tasted like mild green tea with a slight mint flavor. 

Hagaki - 2 Japanese postcards

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. I love the postcards, they are so pretty. I'm actually thinking they would be fun to frame. 

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