Japanese Snack Box Spotlight: Bokksu

Featured
Bokksu Spotlight

Bokksu is  a premium Japanese snack subscription unlike any other Japanese snack box. They are totally in love with Japanese snacks, which is why they handpick premium snacks that people in Japan actually eat, curate them into a culturally themed box, and deliver this box of deliciousness to your door every month. They source directly from snack makers in Japan, so many of the artisanal snacks  included cannot be found anywhere else.

How It Works:

Subscribe – Receive – Experience

You can choose between two boxes:

Classic Bokksu will take you on a gourmet journey through Japan each month. From Hokkaido white chocolate butter cookies to Kyoto matcha mochi to Kyushu mango chiffon cakes, get the experience of tasting authentic Japanese snacks delivered right to your door. Each box comes with:

  • 18-20 delicious Japanese snacks and a tea pairing curated around a cultural theme
  • Our Tasting Guide that explains the story and flavors of each product in your box
  • The option to pause or cancel anytime
  • Free shipping within the U.S., Flat-rate shipping worldwide

OR

Tasting Bokksu is the scrappy but equally adventurous younger sibling of Classic Bokksu. This little explorer will take you to the highest mountains in Hokkaido and the whitest beaches in Okinawa. With Tasting Bokksu, you’ll get a sampling of most or all products each month. Please note that this means you may not receive a full assortment each month. Each box comes with:

  • 8-10 delicious Japanese snacks and a tea pairing curated around a cultural theme
  • Our Tasting Guide that explains the story and flavors of each product in your box
  • The option to pause or cancel anytime
  • Free shipping within the U.S. (currently only available to U.S. customers, sorry!)

Good to Know: Other Japanese snack subscription services use mass-produced mainstream snacks that can be readily found in most Asian markets outside of Japan. Bokksu directly sources its artisanal snacks from local snack makers in Japan. They only curate high quality and gourmet snacks, never filler items. They are also the ONLY service that handselects a tea pairing for each box to complement that month’s flavors.

Thoughts: Bokksu is responsible for my new found love of Japanese snacks! If you had told me a few months ago that I would look forward to a Japanese snack food box every month I would have told you that you were crazy! The boxes are so beautifully curated and marketed. To me the packaging is all part of the experience and Bokksu has created quite an experience with their boxes! If you haven’t tried it yet,  you must!
