If Bokksu is a brand that’s unfamiliar to you, read on.
It’s sourced from Japan and opens up a whole new world for the food lover who hasn’t quite made it to Asia, just yet. From snacks to tea, Bokksu will send a curated box to your door every month. If subscriptions or commitment isn’t your thing you can buy one-off boxes as gifts.
Subscription Taster Box
You choose your subscription plan to match your budget. The more you pay in advance, the cheaper it becomes. The box I received was a LOVE Box for Valentine’s Day. With it, a printed card with information about the contents.
Pancake Langue de Chat
From Hokkaido, this pancake takes its inspiration from the American-classic-turned-Japanese-favourite. The company, Bon Bon Seika has transformed the breakfast favourite into a sandwich cookie with maple and white chocolate filling that tastes just like a pancake.
Japanese Kit Kat Strawberry Tiramisu
Strawberry and Tiramisu? Sceptical? This Kit Kat combo is irresistible. Strawberry coating, a coffee wafer that compliments the full package. A limited-edition flavour released only in Japan to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the brand in Japan.
Beauty Red Herb Tea
It’s not just food in these boxes, from Tokyo, tea maker
Baked Strawberry Chocolate
From Tokyo, with strawberry bits and rice puffs backed into a fluffy chocolate cake, each bite opens with the texture of the crisp rice and finishes with layers of delicate strawberry flavour.
Arigato No Kimochi Senbei
It’s a chocolate fish filled with airy mousse. This snack is a variation of monaka, a traditional Japanese confection featuring two layers of mochi wafers encasing a sweet filling. This modern update replaces the traditional red bean filling with chocolate mousse.
Cubie ‘Hi’ Milk Chocolate
A packet of cubed chocolate, sweet and creamy. Delicious.
Spicy Mini Heart Senbei
This assortment of senbei rice crackers includes black sesame, mustard and green seaweed (aonori) flavours. If you’re sensitive to spice, these probably aren’t for you!
These boxes are the perfect gift for any foodie lover in your life.
