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.

Price: $12 a month w/no option to skip. 

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:

Green Tea Oreo, Soft Oreo with Matcha Cream Filling. - I thought this was taste, the boyfriend thought it was too dry. 

Sanko Zara Jiman Senbei, Rice Cracker with Granulated Sugar Topping. 

Teriyaki Burger Umaibo, Puffed Corn Stick - Teriyaki Burger Flavor. - the boyfriend ate this but said it wasn't very good. 

Pocky Classic, Chocolate Cream Covered Biscuit Sticks. - always yummy. 

Pokemon Ramune, Ramune (Fizzy Cider Drink) Flavored Candies. - I expected more fizz but it was ok. 

Maison De Kukkia, Matcha Chocolate Cookie Sandwich. - I like this one a lot! flakey cookie with yummy green tea filling. 

(2) Kasugai Apple Gummy, Juicy Apple Gummies. - super soft apple jelly candy. 

Sakura Mochi Chocolate, Cherry Blossom & Azuki Bean Choco with Mochi Filling. - This was an odd flavor, not bad just odd. 

Caplico Cones, Waffle Cones with Chocolate Ice Cream-ey Centers. - loved this cone candy!

French Papiro, Hard Cookie Shell with Creamy Green Tea Filling. 

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 and ate the whole thing in one sitting.
