Japanese snacks used to be a long plane ride away, but now with Bokksu Boutique, foodies from all over the world can treat themselves to their favorite Japanese delicacy whenever they have a craving. Here’s a list of some of the best Japanese snacks you can buy online at Bokksu.


Have you ever tried daifuku? If you haven’t, here’s what you need to know: Daifuku is a type of mochi that often contains an especially sweet filling, like a strawberry or, you guessed it, pudding! But if daifuku is mochi, then what is mochi? Mochi is a rice cracker made with mochigome and glutinous rice. Though mochi also has a sweet and soft filling, it is much thinner and chewier than daifuku. Okay, now that you’re caught up, let's get to the good stuff. The Bokksu Boutique sells several different daifuku products, including Pudding Daifuku Mochi from Tomatsu.
The Pudding variety daifuku is made with a smooth pudding cream filling and a chewy mochi and caramel marshmallow outer layer. Meanwhile, the Matcha daifuku is prepared by kneading the matcha powder into the dough, and wrapping it around a dream white chocolate cream filling. The best part is, no matter which snack you choose, you can’t go wrong with either daifuku delight!


Speaking of mochi, Bokksu Boutique has a bunch of mochis to choose from, too. Whether you’re looking to try it for the first time, or want to relive your last Japan visit from the comfort of your home, the following mochi options are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and then some! If you’re a fruit fanatic, then the Fujiya Nectar Peach Mochi is just what you need. Wrapped around the peach jelly filling is a thin layer of marshmallow, and wrapped around that is a chewy peach-flavored mochi. This peachy keen treat is filled with the flavors of Fujiya’s Nectar Peach Juice, which is known for using real peach purée, so you know it’s good.

Or, if you’re searching for an even lighter bite, the Funwari Meijin Mochi Puffs: Hokkaido Milk might be the perfect Japanese snack for you. Each rice cake perfection tastes like a cloud-like confection, thanks to its ingredients of Japanese mochi rice and Hokkaido milk. Plus, each mochi is prepared using a super secret process to give the outside an added crispy texture for an even more enjoyable snacking experience!

Lastly, when talking about Japanese sweets, you can’t forget to mention pocky. If you don’t know, Pocky is a long, skinny biscuit treat covered in a flavored coating. Pocky is the ideal snack for an on-the-go lifestyle, and here and the Pocky packs you need in your pantry, stat.
First up, we have the Zeitaku Milk Chocolate Pocky, because you can never go wrong with a classic. Each biscuit bite is covered in a luxurious milk chocolate coating, and contains 3.8 times the amount of chocolate than a traditional pocky. Luxurious, indeed!  Zeitaku Milk Chocolate Pocky Expand your pocky horizons even more with the Tsubu Tsubu Strawberry Pocky flavor. These cocoa biscuits are coated in a thick layer of chocolate that’s been blended with real strawberry powder for a smooth chocolate-strawberry base. Afterwards, tart freeze-dried strawberries are crumbled and added into the mixture to create a wonderfully chunky texture.
