First Look

Cybele Rusks

Cybele Rusks:  Rusks are baguette slices that have been baked twice and topped with sugar and cream or frosting.  Cybele Rusks come from the Cybele wheat workshops in the mountains of Yamagata.  Cybele baguettes make rusks specifically for rusks.  There were 8 different flavors in all, and I tried most of them.

  • Red Strip: Garlic:  This was fantastic and I wished I saved it for Italian night.
  • Yellow/Green Stripe: Maple Walnut
  • Purple: Blueberry
  • Green Stripe: Spicy Onion: This stated similar to the garlic, but obviously with more onion.

027

  • Red Stripe: Cinnamon
  • Brown Stripe: Chocolate  This one was great with milk.
  • Blue Stripe: Almond Coconut:  This one is going to my dad, since he loves coconut.
  • Golden Brown Stripe: Plain Sugar My 3-year-old loved this one and wants more.

Ryushodo:

Ryushodo: This is a green tea flavored wagashi snacks, which are similar to rusks.  This was a really sweet rusk and the green tea flavor was there, but not too pronounced.

Yuki no Yado

Yuki no Yado: This is senbei, which is seasoned with salt and covered with Hokkaido cream.  It was a crunch, salty treat covered in cream.

Pocky Summer Salty Flavor

Pocky Summer Salty Flavor:  Our family loves Pocky.  This is the same cracker, covered with chocolate and salt, quite amazing.

Bourbon Rumando

Bourbon Rumando: These are crispy crepes filled with chocolate.  These were so good and were eaten right away.

Maison De Kukkia

Maison De Kukkia: These are green tea flavored cream in between two wafer cookies.  The wafer is light and similar to an ice cream cone.
Hokkaido Matcha Milk Candy

Hokkaido Matcha Milk Candy: This is a combination of Hokkaido milk and matcha, these weren’t my favorite treat in the box.

019

Final Thought: This was a fantastic box and I was really impressed my Snakku.  Snakku delivers true Japanese snacks that are not only tasty, but delivered in such beautiful packaging.  Snakku is a great example of what a subscription box should be about, value, cute packaging and great products.  You can try Snakku with this link and and use the code SUBMOM to save 10% on your first box..  In addition, enter the giveaway to win a box from Snakku, there are 2 Winners in this giveaway.
