February Skosh Box

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.

Contents of the Skoshbox:

Milk Mint Candy, Cool Mint Between Milky Candies.

Strawberry Senbei, Crispy Rice Cracker with Creamy Strawberry Drizzle. - This was ok. Had an artificial strawberry flavor. 

Vanilla Roll Cake, Vanilla Roll Cake with Butter Cream Filling.

Ume Cha, A Stick of Ume (Pickled Plum) Tea - mix with hot water.

Takenoko/Kinokono Yama, Biscuits Covered in Chocolate or Strawberry. - I got the chocolate covered ones and they were tasty. 

Senbei Mix, A 'Pub Mix' of Nuts, Senbei, Dried Fish, & Shrimp Crackers.

Aero Chocolates. A Japanese Version of the Bubbly Chocolate from the UK.

Konbu Ume Jelly, Konbu (Kelp) and Ume Flavored Jelly.

Fruit Candies, Apple, Peach, Grapefruit, Orange and Grape Flavors!

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. These boxes get eaten super fast at my house. It not just a mystery box but mystery food too! We have had things that we like more than others but have never hated anything in the box. 

Verdict: I'm happy with this box.
