May 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.

May Skosh Box

Contents of the Skoshbox:

Roanne Vanilla Wafers, baked vanilla wafer.

Bubble Gum in grape flavor.

Tamago Boro Cookies, ball-shaped potato/egg cookies.

Dried Ume, dried whole pickled plum.

Mizore Dama, hard candy in orange flavor.

(2) Fried Senbei, flash fried crisp rice cracker.

Yocchan Cut Squid, pieces of pickled cut squid.- This was super fishy and salty. 

Oreo Raspberry, oreo stick in raspberry flavor - Japan exclusive! - I didn't care for the raspberry flavor. 

Bourbon Lumonde Cookies, flaky chocolate coated cookie stick. 

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 devoured within minutes of opening. 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: We thought everything in this months box was delicious!
