There were so many snacks, with most mainly in Japanese, that it became a tasting game of figuring out what you were eating, which I found I really enjoyed. Snack box standouts included the White Strawberry, a freeze-dried strawberry that is chocolate-infused and made by innovative producer Qua. The Sakura Rusk was by far the most
surprising of the box, which is essentially a twice baked slice of baguette with sakura butter (sakura flower petals mixed in butter) giving it a sweet and savory flavor that was both unexpected and completely new to me. Also interesting and which took a minute to decide that I really liked was the Suppa Mucho Sour plum, which is basically crispy potato sticks seasoned with tangy plum. At first this was my least favorite, but after a few bites it grew on me and I couldn’t finish the bag fast enough. While there were plenty of surprises with every bite of every snack, the box overall takes you on a journey through the culture of Japan and does not disappoint in both flavor and sensory surprises.
If you love snacks, I highly recommend Bokksu, as it offered many flavor profiles and combinations that I would normally have never gotten a chance to try, with almost all being surprising in flavor and even packaging, you really get a chance to experience some of the flavors of Japan without leaving your home.
