Taste the Flavors of Japan with Bokksu Food Subscription Box

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

I have been on the hunt lately for new and exciting subscription boxes to share with you guys. This latest one that I have found has to be my favorite, thus far. Bokksu delivers authentic candy and treats to you each month from different regions of Japan. More About Bokksu

Founder Danny Taing developed his passion for food and travel while living and working in Japan for many years. During his time there, he immersed himself in the culture, traveled all around the country, and stuffed his face with all the local snacks along the way. It was through the mango chiffon cakes in Kyushu and the freshly handground matcha in Kyoto that Danny found his passion. After returning to the U.S., he was frustrated with the limited availability of the authentic snacks he had discovered during his time abroad. Yearning for a real taste of Japan, he set out to create Bokksu: a premium subscription service that delivers a cultural and gourmet journey through Japan to your doorstep each month.

Bokksu is unlike any other Japanese snack subscription. We are totally in love with authentic Japanese snacks, which is why we handpick snacks that people in Japan actually eat and curate them into beautiful themed boxes every month. We are also the only Japanese box subscription that includes a Tea Pairing specifically selected to complement that month’s delicacies as well as a Tasting Guide that describes the story and flavors of each item in the box.

During the month of March, I got to devour the contents of my Spring Picnic Bokksu box. It was filled with sweet candy, savory snacks, tantalizing tea and much more.
The March Spring Picnic Bokksu box was curated to highlight fresh spring flavors from all over the country including fragrant 20th Century Asian Pears from Tottori, umami-rich uni (sea urchin) from Kumamoto, gourmet shrimp from Niigata, and organic strawberries from Nagano to fill your picnic basket! I have to say that the organic strawberries were my personal favorite. It was great to pack in our first picnic in the park and have uniquely flavored treats for all of the family to enjoy. Our March box was exciting and delightful, but I am even more excited to tell you about what is coming up for the month of May!

May Bokksu is the Tour of Japan!
