I recently came across a new subscription service called Skoshbox. Readers out there who have limited access to Japanese products—you’ll love this. Every month, Skoshbox delivers the best of Japanese snacks and other items straight to your door for $12 per month (includes shipping). This service model is like a CSA box for Japanese snacks and candy! This sample sent to me was filled with nostalgic goodies I grew up with like Koala’s March (コアラのマーチ), Umaibo (うまい棒), Marble Chocolate (マーブルチョコ), and Choco Ball (チョコボール)! Plus there were others I’ve never tried like Look Chocolate, chocolate bars with green tea milk and azuki filling. You can see a full description of the current box here.
Even if you have access to a Japanese grocery store, this would make a great gift to someone who doesn’t. In fact, in a bit of personal news, I’m packing these snacks in my hospital bag to take when I go into labor. It has the perfect variety of small salty and sweet snacks!
The deadline to subscribe for this month is July 15. Enter the promo code BEAN06 and you will receive a free mystery snack with your first box. Subscribe now—the July deadline is fast approaching!
I received a free sample from Skoshbox, but this is not a sponsored pot. While I’ve received requests for product reviews in the past, I usually decline them. However, I felt Skoshbox’s subscription service would be of particular interest to my readers, so hope you give them a try!
