Here at Bokksu, we all have one thing in common: a love of Japanese snacks. So this month we celebrated that love by curating snacks featuring the traditional flavors of Japan. Think azuki, matcha, wasabi, etc. It was one of the most fun boxes to curate, and we hope all of you enjoyed it too! Here's what Members had to say:

I guess you guys don't like bean tea.

I love all the different flavors. There was something for everyone in my house in this box

It’s a great way of experiencing Japan remotely, well curated selection of snacks and I love the booklet with cultural information!

The experience of tasting new and surprising flavors was incredible
