Snakku Review April 2016
I’m not a huge fan of Japanese snacks, mostly because I don’t like the unknown, but when it comes to Snakku, I actually kind of like trying the different treats I find inside. I’ve said it many times before, but this is a Japanese Snack Box done right.
If you aren’t familiar with Snakku it is the ONLY Japanese snack subscription box that gets its snacks directly from local snack makers in Japan. They work directly with the Japanese snack makers, some of whom have been around for 100+ years! This box was provided complimentary for review.
The Box: Snakku
What You Get: You can expect about 10-13 tasty snacks in every box! Also every order automatically enters you into our monthly Deluxe Box giveaway which has over $100 of premium Japanese snacks.
Ships to: US
Shipping Cost: FREE
Everything about this subscription is classy, from the box, to the pretty fabric it is wrapped in, to the way the snacks are packaged, to the snacks themselves, and everything in between. I also really like their product card, nothing about it says “cheesy” and that makes me very happy. I don’t have time for cheesy.

Thoughts: Wow, I am actually very impressed with the snacks in this month’s box. They are very different from anything I have received before, thanks to the floral ingredients. This month’s box includes Sakura themed snacks because it is Cherry Blossom Season in Japan, and I am loving all of them. I think it’s the Spring vibe the box has going on, but it’s definitely a favourite. Japanese Snack boxes tend to overwhelm me, but not this one, I actually find it fun to go through, and I always end up learning something new. Keep up the good work Snakku, I like what you have going on.
