December SkoshBox

Skoshbox is a food subscription box for Japanese snacks. Their slogan is "A taste of Japan at your doorstep." . 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.

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'm going to try my hand at some origami. My mom has been wanting a origami crane mobile so maybe I'll give that a try. 

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

This is the ball. It has a hole on the top to blow air into but no way to seal it. When the ball gets a little crushed you simply blow it back up. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this but it's strangely addicting to bat it around.
