I have been sent over a brand new subscription box. This one comes filled with Japanese goodies and is known as Snakku box. There are several Japanese snack subscription box services which already deliver to the UK. This one however work directly with snack producers based in Japan and the boxes come with many items that can only be bought in Japan and no where else. As well as a few more well known Japanese items.
The box itself is quite a little feature in itself and rather a mystery with its layers of unpacking. It arrives wrapped in a reusable floral cloth.
The box contains both sweet and savoury snacks such as littlr crackers and big crisp corn bars which taste better than they sound. The Pocky is somethng I’m familiar with and we all enjoy, it’s sweet dipped biscuit sticks. There was some rather strange but nice crunchy chocolate bean shaped sweets in little bags plus crackers with edible gold. The little strawberry sweets were delicious too.
The boxes often come with themes and this theme was strawberries, being Feb/March box and so both valentines and Mother’s Day. So a few strawberry items. The strangest thing is the green tea kit Kats which I never knew existed.
The snacks are all from Japan and therefore have no English labelling. There is a guide included explaining what is all is.
Boxes like this are a really great way to sample snacks and food which we probably would not come across otherwise.
Snakku can be purchased as a monthly subscription or gift. The prices are in US dollars and start at $38.95 for a box containing 2lbs of snacks, between 10-13 items. There is also the lighter box option costing just $14.95.
