Bokksu

If you love to snack, this is one box you wouldn’t want to miss.. BOKKSU!

Founder Danny Taing developed his passion for food and travel while living and working in Japan for many years. During his time there, he immersed himself in the culture, traveled all around the country, and stuffed his face with all the local snacks along the way. It was through the mango chiffon cakes in Kyushu and the freshly handground matcha in Kyoto that Danny found his passion. After returning to the U.S., he was frustrated with the limited availability of the authentic snacks he had discovered during his time abroad. Yearning for a real taste of Japan, he set out to create Bokksu: a premium subscription service that delivers a cultural and gourmet journey through Japan to your doorstep each month.

 

Bokksu is unlike any other Japanese snack subscription. We are totally in love with authentic Japanese snacks, which is why we handpick snacks that people in Japan actually eat and curate them into beautiful themed boxes every month. We are also the only Japanese box subscription that includes a Tea Pairing specifically selected to complement that month’s delicacies as well as a Tasting Guide that describes the story and flavors of each item in the box.

So after seeing so many FB & IG ads on Bokksu, I decided to give it a try! Enough of healthy snacks! LOL!!

When i saw the subscription i was like… WHAT?? So expensive??? But actually, there are two plans to choose from..

NOW MUSIC PLEASE!! Here’s my first (two) BOKKSU!!!

Such pleasant orange boxes! The box don’t feel heavy! Got me wondering if there would even be enough snacks to get me HIGH!

Nevertheless, let’s open our first Bokksu – May box (All Star)!

This was a free box when i signed up during one of their promo period.

HURRAY to FREEBIES!

It didn’t took me very long to start trying (ALMOST) every pieces!

Each box comes with an introduction leaflet! Sharing the details of the snacks! Origin, ingredient, a lil story! This was pretty thoughtful isn’t it? At least I will know what I am chewing and enjoying!

Now let me show you a few items which i tried on the spot while doing unboxing!!

BROWN SUGAR COOKIE

First impression , for myself was, eew.. that’s a weird tasting cookie but as you bite, the brown sugar fragrance became stronger and it got tastier! For sure this is not love at first sight!

WHITE CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY MUNCH

The white choc sweetness overwhelmed me when i opened the pack! Like sweet chocolate berry scent! Took while to have my first bite as i’m not sure is this raspberry will taste like medicine – you know most raspberry flavoured food does!!?

Well to be honest, it still have but was pretty mild. Probably because it was paired with white chocolate and the sweetness kinda smooth it out. The crunchy airy biscuit in it gave it additional texture which made this snack even more awesome than just awesome!

CHEESE COOKIE

This just resemble Shiroi Koibito (白い恋人) so much I thought I would be indulge in another round of sweetness! BUT NO.

This was, ok yes, a lil sweet, but more of cheesy savory snacks! I’m not a cheese person so if you ask me, I would rather oop for Shiroi Koibito (even though i’m already sick of it). 

NOW THAT MY MAY BOX IS ALREADY FULL OF GOODNESS.. I didn’t waste another second thinking whether or not to open my second box!!

I didn’t take pictures of what I ate for my Jun box, but so far, most that I tried (or even shared – i.e. red bean toast, i don’t eat red bean), got pretty good feebback!

Get your $5 off first CLASSIC BOKKSU!
