January 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.

December Skoshbox

Contents of the Skoshbox:

Choco Cake, Soft Fluffy Chocolate Cake.

Shiruko Sando, Bite Sized Baked Head Cookies.

Furikake Senbei, Rice Cracker Topped with Furikake.

Cream Chestnut Senbei, Senbei drizzled with Creamed Chestnut.

Ajitsuke Nori, Seasoned Seaweed Packs. - I love seaweed!

Alfort Biscuit, Biscuit Cookie with a Layer of Milk or Dark Chocolate.

Big Thunder Chocolate, Chocolate Covered Choco-Cookie. - tasty!

Soft Oreo, Soft Oreo in Vanilla (only in Japan!) - I really liked this (which I shouldn't). I've heard of cake oreos are they similar?

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!
