My Skoskbox subscription continues and although I’m a little disappointed this one came a little late, I was still excited to see what they had to offer for February!
The place card let me know what each item was (because let’s face it, not all of us can read Japanese) and it was really hard picking what I wanted to eat first! But I usually lean towards candy and chocolate, hehe.
1. Jagabee Potato Fries
I’ve seen these in grocery stores recently and it was right after I tried them too. They aren’t exactly chips and they aren’t baked or dehydrated either. They might just be potatoes cut into the shape of fries. It’s a light crispy snack but wouldn’t be something I’d get, it’s nothing special.
2. Shimi Corn Chocolate
This one is my favourite out of everything and I couldn’t help but eat the whole thing in one sitting. But then again, there aren’t that many to begin with. It’s essentially puffed corn covered in chocolate and it’s sooooo good! Imagine a cheese puff but with chocolate. One of the best snacks I’ve had for a long time!
3. Kasigai Fruit Gummies – Orange
These are the snack sized dummies but you’re probably more familiar with the bigger bag that has them individually wrapped. I first had these as a kid and it’s still the highest quality gummy I’ve ever had; it doesn’t stick to your teeth and is so full of flavour.
4. Mini Box Chewing Gum – Tablet or Mini Tabs
I like these more than the Rilakkuma Gum. I find gum with a hard outer shell have a more vibrant taste and retains the taste longer.
5. Nakayoshi Soft Cookie Ball
I love cookie balls but these tasted like any other I’ve had before. The taste was a tad smoother and lighter which could just be how the Japanese like it.
6. Charlotte Matcha Choco
Such good quality chocolate, I couldn’t believe. The matcha inside was extremely creamy
7. Rilakkuma Gum + Seal Set
The gum is very soft and the flavour is sweet and strong but doesn’t last long. Like the Kirby gum in the last box, I think it’s more of a commodity.
