Skoshbox is a fun subscription box that sends you a selection of unique Japanese candies and snacks every month.
Each box will consist of a sampling of handpicked snacks, candy, and other treats sourced from Japan. Skoshbox (pronounced skōsh box), is derived from the Japanese word “sukoshi” which means “a little bit”. Hence, the small sample-sized collection. For those who want a larger box with more full-sized treats you can opt for Dekabox — packed with a whole pound of snacks.
Whichever plan you go for, you can expect to receive 100% authentic Japanese goods hand-selected by Skoshbox/Dekabox. Every item will include an English ingredients list, so you’ll always know exactly what’s inside. Items typically don’t overlap between the two boxes, so you can subscribe to both without having to worry about getting too many duplicates.
Skoshbox subscriptions are $12/month or less with multi-month commitments. Dekabox is $24/month with the option to receive a mystery accessory in each box for just $2 more. — Use coupon code “ROSEBUDS2” at checkout to save $2 on any plan!
Let’s see what’s in the January 2016 Skoshbox!
The box! Love the cute graphics on the lid.
A peek inside.
I was impressed by how much they got to fit into such a small box!
A full-color information booklet listed all of the items in both the Skoshbox and Dekabox for January. Ingredients were also included for each one.
Puccho: Hoppe-Chan Gummies – These are little teardrop(?) shaped gummy candies made with real apple and cherry juice. The packaging is adorable and I love the built-in carry handle. It’s resealable too!
Korokoro Sugar Rusk – I first learned about rusks from another Japanese snack subscription who highlighted them in one of their boxes. They’re basically crunchy baguettes that come in a variety of flavors. These ones are bite-sized and have a sweet, sugary flavor.
Ao-Be Soda Gum – This package contains two sticks of soda-flavored gum that stain your tongue green or blue when chewed. I think this is the only vegan-friendly item in the box, so I may have to give it a try. 🙂
Gaburi-Chu Cola Stick – A soft & chewy soda-flavored candy stick. Sort of like a cola Tootsie Roll?
Umaibo Yakitori – These are big corn puff snacks that taste like grilled chicken (or at least they’re supposed to). I’ll have to take their word on it. 😉
Sakupanda Zed – Cute! These are double chocolate flavored cookies in fun panda bear shapes. I’m sure my 3-year-olds will be big fans.
Skoshbox is definitely a fun box for discovering new Japanese treats! There was a nice variety of items and I love that they include English ingredients for each one. The packaging was really cute too!
