In March, Bokksu Members took a picnic with March Spring Picnic Bokksu. In honor of the coming spring, we curated some fruity flavors like Alfort Mini Chocolate Premium: Rich Strawberry, and some snacks inspired by Japanese picnic favorites like Uni Rice Crackers and Gourmet Edamame Chips. Read on to find out what our Members thought!

Who Took the Survey?

This month over 200 Members from more than 37 countries participated in our monthly survey. With survey-takers from Sweden to Costa Rica, from Hong Kong to Slovenia, a huge thank you to all who participated and the survey winner for this month, Kathleen!

The Results!

This month, Members rated our snack curation as a 4.2 out of 5, with a nearly equal 41% of respondents rating the curation a 4 or a 5. Our cultural theme "Spring Picnic" earned a 4.4 out of 5 rating.

I guess everyone was ready to leave winter behind!

Sweet or Savory?

Every month, we struggle to hit that sweet spot where everyone is happy with our sweet to savory ratio. We are happy to report that 50% of respondents say we got it just right this time! However, 37.8% thought this box wasn't sweet enough, while 12.5% wanted more savory.

Ranking Snapshot:

Queen of the popularity contest was White Strawberry, with 31.2% of respondents choosing it as their favorite March snack. Gourmet Shrimps chips got the short end of the straw, with the largest number of respondents selecting it as their least favorite snack. Will someone defend Gourmet Shrimp Chips honor?

But What Did Our Members *Really* Think?

"We just love the snacks. They are always unique and authentic. We get an amazing assortment of snacks and the themes help us get a glimpse of Japan’s wonderful culture."

"I love that I get enough to share with my husband, without having to split everything. There's 2 or more of everything, it's great!"

"This month we ate every single snack! It was delicious and the white strawberry was very unique! We enjoyed this box very much! Thank you!"
