Bokksu, Japanese for “box”, delivers an authentic Japanese snack box to your door allowing you to discover Japan one bite at a time. Unlike other Japanese subscription boxes, they partner with 100+-year-old family snack makers in Japan to deliver the most unique and authentic assortment of gourmet Japanese snacks and tea pairings each month. Every Bokksu subscription snack box is filled with hand-selected snacks and tea pairings based on that month’s theme and flavor. Read our full Bokksue review and watch the unboxing and tasting video for all of the details.
What We Liked
Unique gift idea!
Exclusive snacks from Japan that you won’t find anywhere else!
Love the Japanese Snack Market where you can order a la carte!
What We Don’t Like
Subscription (you are able to go month to month, though!)
Wish we could pick a themed box!
We ordered the Tasting Box and like all new customers, the theme was “Seasons of Japan”. Check out our unboxing and tasting video below for all of the details.
As you can see, Bokksu provides a fun and unique experience for both kids and adults. Bokksu would make a wonderful gift and would be super fun to try at home for a couple of months. For us, personally, we wouldn’t sign up for the Classic box every month because it would be hard to get through all of the snacks and we have someone in the house we food allergies, but I could see a larger family that loves to try new things digging into a box like this every month. I could imagine signing up for the Tasting box for 1-3 months as a fun surprise for our son. I could also see purchasing items from the Japanese Snack Market for parties (hello Japanese Kit Kat variety pack!), unique Halloween treats, or for an interesting snack.

If a subscription is not your thing, you can also shop a la carte in the Japanese Snack Market. This shop is full of fun and unique food and drinks that would be great for gifting!
Below are several unique items that we found in the market. The Japanese Kit Kat variety party box would be so fun to give as a gift or to have at a tasting party. Exclusive flavors include matcha, rum raisin, Shinshu apple, wasabi, purple sweet potato, Japan sake, and more.
