Black Sesame Taiko: Kumamon Design

Black Sesame Taiko: Kumamon Design

Manufacturer: Iwata Corporation
Common Allergens: Tree nuts, Soy
Also Contains: N/A
Product of: Kumamoto Prefecture
Snack is: Sweet
Vegetarian: Yes

Kumamon is here to make you fall in love with Kumamoto Prefecture! Made with fragrant roasted almonds, black sesame, and mizuame, this black sesame taiko is scrumptious. We love the crunchy texture and the way the sweet mizuame mingles with those yummy nutty notes. Each little “drum” is actually handmade in Kumamoto! First, the almonds and sesame are roasted, and then mixed by hand with the mizuame over heat. After mixing, it’s hand-pressed into discs and left to cool. They say one drum provides you with a full day’s worth of sesame.

Usagi Chocolate Ball

Usagi Chocolate Ball

Manufacturer: Newest
Common Allergens: Milk
Also Contains: N/A
Product of: Osaka
Snack is: Sweet
Vegetarian: Yes

We had to include these cute mini chocolates for their festive rabbit design! They have a sugary outer shell and rich cocoa center. This snack was inspired by one of Japan’s most famous folktales: Tsuki no Usagi, “The Rabbit on the Moon”, which is often told to children during Otsukimi while gazing at the full moon. There’s even a children’s song called Usagi meaning “rabbit”!

Rich Baked Chocolat

Rich Baked Chocolat

Manufacturer: Nakajima Taishodo
Common Allergens: Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Soy
Also Contains: Alcohol
Product of: Osaka
Snack is: Sweet
Vegetarian: Yes

This rich dark chocolate cake is absolutely decadent thanks to the use of couverture chocolate, which contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter than the standard chocolate used in baking. Each bite opens with a creamy and intense chocolatey flavor and finishes with a splash of rum finishes that adds an aromatic note.

Chocolate Azuki Beans: Black Sesame Kinako

Chocolate Azuki Beans: Black Sesame Kinako

Manufacturer: Denroku
Common Allergens: Milk, Soy
Also Contains: N/A
Product of: Yamagata Prefecture
Snack is: Sweet
Vegetarian: Yes

The first step in creating this addictive treat is simmering azuki in sugar syrup to makeamanatto using a traditional process first created in the 1860s. However, snackmaker Denroku adds a modern twist by coating the beans with white chocolate and then finishing them withgoma (black sesame) andkinako (roasted soybean powder). The kinako flavor stole our hearts away with its nutty, peanut buttery taste. Thanks to this innovative maker, the humble azuki bean has been transformed into a creamy, dreamy confection.

OFU: Fukairi Shichimi

OFU Smoked Crackers and Peanuts: Fukairi Shichimi Seven-Flavor

Manufacturer: Itofu
Common Allergens: Peanuts, Wheat, Soybeans
Also Contains: N/A
Product of: Kyoto
Snack is: Savory
Vegetarian: Yes

Usingofu (Japanese wheat-gluten) and seasoning from Kyoto, this perfectly baked assortment of smoked crackers and peanuts should be named UFO instead because it takes you to the moon! Ofu is another common alternative to tofu in Buddhist cuisine and is loved for being more flavorful and with a more dense texture than tofu. Thanks to the balance of peanuts, the seven-spiceshichimi flavoring is heavy but not overpowering.

This special rice cracker is made with goma(black sesame) and genmai (brown rice) baked into it. The unique earthy flavor and pure sesame taste are impossible to miss! There is a delightful coating of honey soy sauce that give a sweet spin on something we would normally expect only from umami. When you take your first bite, focus on the earthy tones of the snack and the toasty flavor of roasted brown rice will reveal itself to you!

Manufacturer: Taruwakien
Common Allergens: N/A
Also Contains: N/A

Fresh, full green tea leaves clean and simple in flavor. This tea shows off just why Shizuoka prefecture is known for having some of the highest quality green tea in all of Japan and the world. The name “Full Moon” tea comes from how the leaves are harvested within the 7 days before the full moon, where the tea is able to get a rich aroma and umami flavor by this particular harvesting practice. For those interested in the rhythm of the moon, you can find this tea to be especially energizing.

Team Bokksu absolutely adores all types of Japanese rice crackers, which is why we are thrilled to introduce thenure-agesen (moist rice cracker)! This beautifully-wrapped senbei is a little different from our usual crunchy variety that we feature in our boxes. Instead of the normal snap you might expect when biting into this snack, this cracker has a little bit more of a satisfying tear.

Also Contains: N/A
Product of: Chiba Prefecture
Snack is: Savory

Sassy and lazy, Gudetama is a Sanrio character beloved in Japan and across the world! Because Gudetama is Japan’s most famous egg, we had to include him in our Moon Festival Bokksu. There are many Japanese dishes that feature a raw or fried egg and are calledtsukimi because the egg looks like the full moon. This particular snack is fluffy, puffy, and flavored like the Japanese comfort food tamago kake gohan, which features hot rice, soy sauce, and a raw egg stirred into it. This puff stick has all the savory kick we’d expect with subtle notes of seaweed, sesame, and sugar from the furikake.

Semi-sweet and rich in flavor, this little number keeps us wanting more!
