I’ve embarked on a new monthly subscription journey with Skoshbox and I’m pretty excited. I love snacks in general and we can’t deny that Asians come up with some of the most scrumptious, craziest things!
You get a personalized rectangular box with all of your snacks neatly packaged like a Tetris puzzle. You don’t get the full sized version but they make up for it by providing you with on average eight samples! They range from sweet to savoury to salty.
You’ll also get a card that tells you the name, flavour and ingredients. That way, if you wanted to try and find it yourself, you’ll know what to tell stores when they ask what you’re looking for. (It’ll also help when you can’t exactly pinpoint what you just ate)
Below is a numbered picture of all the snacks included in this month’s Skoshbox. I’ll be doing this for each month so that’s it’s easier for you to follow and less picture heavy.
1. Nameko Biscuits
These are suppose to be butter biscuits and it might sound plain but they are surprisingly addicting. The buttery taste is subtle but it gives the cookies a smooth taste. The designs aren’t cute or impressive but they are…interesting. It reminds me of doodles you would find in a sketch book.
2. Shrimp Mayo Umaibo
I actually really liked this and if I see it in stores, I’m going to grab me some! It has a light spicy mayo taste that isn’t too salty and it’s supposed to be a puffed corn snack. Its texture is similar to a giant Cheetos Puff but way more addicting.
3. Potato Chip Sticks
These potato sticks are lightly seasoned and not too greasy. There isn’t much to say about them because frankly, they aren’t anything special.
4. Strawberry Pocky
Strawberry Pocky isn’t anything too new since it’s been around forever but what’s different about this one is that there are some strawberry bits on the coating which gives it a nice little surprise.
5. Sakusaku Panda Cookies
I’ve actually had these before I got them in Skoshbox. I couldn’t resist because of the adorable pandas! These are so good and they don’t skimp out on the chocolate either! The pandas also make cute, funny faces that will keep you pretty entertained.
6. Star Kirby Bubble Gum
I thought this one was cute but if it wasn’t for Kirby, I don’t think many people would get it. It comes with three pieces of gum that are gray, why that colour I don’t know. You also get a small sticker sheet and a card that kids can colour in.
7. Green Tea Kit Kat
Oh Japan and their love of Kit Kat. Green tea is a classic and you can definitely feel the matcha powder in the chocolate coating. The flavour is bold and very high quality.
8. Bakauke Fried Sesame
This is another one I’ll be looking out for in stores. It’s a fried sesame flavoured rice cracker that’s nicely roasted to perfection. It’s somewhat salty but also savoury so it’s very satisfying on many levels. A must try!
