I'm what you might call "particular." I either love something passionately or wish it a fiery demise with little to no middle ground. Also, I'm just a smidge of a control freak. Just a *smidge.* Given my type-A tendencies, I usually scoff at monthly subscription services, not trusting anyone's judgment but my own when it comes to clothes, shoes or even what toys or treats to give my dog (admittedly, I'm a bit of a helicopter dog mom). When I heard about Skoshbox, however, I was instantly won over.
Skoshbox is a monthly delivery of hand-picked snacks, candy and accessories from Japan. Like, actually from Japan. The Skoshbox team visits the land of all things kawaii on buying trips to choose the boxes' sample-sized goodies, ensuring that the delivery is totally unique and fun. Also, membership is only $12 a month, and shipping is free.
Each box comes with a handy card, explaining what everything is.
I was super excited to receive my September Skoshbox, which featured an assortment of sweet and savory snacks as well as a surprisingly awesome eraser.
I loved the Matcha Candy, which reminded me of a green tea latte, the Ichigo Milk Candy, sweet, creamy strawberry hard candy, and the Fujiya Home Pie, two flaky, crunchy cookies. My absolute favorite of the lot, though, was the Umaibo (in the white packaging on the far right), a puffed corn snack which tasted like a sweet cheese ball. Yes, the bright orange ones. Don't deny that they're delicious.
With Skoshbox, the surprise element of the delivery is fun (not stressful!), and I loved the novelty of munching on goodies that I wouldn't be able to try otherwise. Visit www.skoshbox.com for more info and to sign up!
