July 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.

Contents of the Skoshbox:

Glico Cream Collon, vanilla cream inside crispy outer shell

Matcha Azuki Jelly, Matcha (green tea) and azuki (red bean) jelly

Bakauke Seafood Curry Senbei, seafood curry flavored senbei

Tirol Jersey Milk Choco, in coffee, milk, almond, pancake or biscuit flavors

Kit Kat Black, dark chocolate kit kat - sadly this melted but it still tasted delicious! 

Orion Custard Cake, fluffy vanilla cake w/custard filling - I liked this a lot. the cake was fluffy and the filling wasn't too sweet. 

Kyoho Grape Kanten Jelly, juicy kyoho grape flavored jelly

Matcha Chokoshi, green tea chocolate puffed rice snack

Marble chocolate, colorful candy coated chocolates

Saikoro Caramel, creamy caramel

Kewpie mayonnaise packet

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. Kewpie mayonnaise is used a lot in Japanese restaurants. I've never tried it but I hear it's good. 

Verdict: We thought everything in this months box was delicious!
