Bokksu Spoiler October 2017
Bokksu is a premium snack subscription that delivers curated boxes of authentic Japanese snacks and teas to your door every month. We are totally in love with Japanese snacks, which is why we handpick snacks that people in Japan actually eat and curate them into beautiful themed boxes.
Here’s a peek at what is in the October box – Fall Harvest
The most anticipated season of the year in Japan is finally here: Fall! Each fall, people in Japan celebrate the Harvest Moon through Otsukimi (お月見), or literally translated, “autumn moon viewing”. This Japanese tradition happens in September or October (depending on the traditional Japanese lunar calendar) and dates back to the Heian Period. During Otsukimi, people gather and offer seasonal treats to the moon such as sweet potatoes, chestnuts, and beans. Many Mid-Autumn Festivals are held throughout Japan to honor the autumn moon and give thanks for the harvest. This month, to help you celebrate and “fall” into the upcoming season Japanese style, we’ve curated delicious snacks and foods that are based on the essential harvest flavors of Japan!
Box Details: 18-20 authentic Japanese snacks and tea pairing sourced directly from Japan as well as a Tasting Guide that explains the story and flavors of each item.
Thoughts: I always look forward to seeing the Bokksu theme each month. I love that they have included some apple items for fall and a Halloween item for October!
