March 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.

March Skoshbox

Contents of the Skoshbox:

Pretz Roast, Roast Buttery Biscuit Sticks. - This has been in these boxes a few times, they are good but I'm over it. 

Kokeshi Arare, Baked Rice Crackers in Girls' Day Wrapping! (March 3rd is Girl's Day!). - zoo cute!

Apple Pie Cream Sandwich, Wheat Cookies with Apple Pie Filling. - yummy little cookie. 

(2) Umaibo Sticks, Natto (Fermented Bean), Salad or Tonkatsu Sauce Flavors - This is the like cheese sticks in the previous boxes only not cheese flavored. 

KitKat White, Japan Exclusive, Taste Like Oreo Ice Cream. - oh my gosh this is good, it's probably a good thing it's not available here because I would buy them for sure. And yes, it does take like oreos 

Dried Fish Jerky Strip, Spicy Wasabi, Tako (Octopus), or Ume (Pickled Plum) Flavors.

Almond Chocolate, Creamy Chocolate with Almond Center. - tasty

Chelsea Scotch Candy, Butterscotch, Yogurt, or Coffee Flavors.

Strawberry Look Chocolate, Chocolate Squares with Tart Strawberry Center. - yummy little treat.

Green Tea Chocolate, with Almond or Mochi/Azuki filling.

Japanese Hiragana Chart, Practice Your Japanese Writing with this Hiragana Chart. - I couldn't figure this out. Kudos to everyone who knows Japanese because this ain't easy!

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.
