We have already begun preparing this month's bokksu and are excited to announce March's theme:

Traditional Japan

If you are wondering what types of snacks fall under "traditional", here's a sneak peek at one of the items in this month's bokksu:

Yokan

Yokan is a thick, jellied dessert typically made with red bean paste, agar, and sugar. Though yokan was first introduced to Japan by China in the late 12th century, the modern form of yokan has its roots in the Edo period in the 19th century when agar and sugar became more available. Due to its rich taste and grainy texture, yokan is usually sliced into smaller servings and enjoyed with green tea.

There are a few spots left in the second beta shipment so subscribe soon to reserve your box!

Happy snacking!
