The two sided information card is both beautiful and informative.  The pictures help identify everything in the box.

Featured Snack: Ogurasansou is the featured company for the box.  They have been making  rice crackers for over 60 years in Kyoto.  The featured snack is Senbei, which is a rice cracker grilled over charcoal and brushed with sweet soy sauce.

Mini Senbei

Mini Senbei: Each pack has an assortment of 8 mini senbei.  I loved checking out all the different shapes and flavors.


This is a look at all the mini senbei, my favorite was the rich black sesame.

Sugar Glazed Senbei

Sugar Glazed Senbei:  This flavor has a sugar sweet coating over the salty rice cracker.  My kids and I liked this one.

Kyoto Style Salt

Kyoto Style Salt:  I think this is the classic version of senbei, as it didn’t have any other flavors that I could detect.

Shrimp Flavored Senbei

Shrimp Flavored Senbei:  This was the one I didn’t care for, a but too fishy.

Glico Caramels

Glico Caramels: This box had a little heart-shaped caramels, along with a cute toy.  There are a variety of toys you could receive, but I received the robot noise maker.


Pejoy:  These snacks are similar to Pocky, but the filling is inside is filled with Macha, instead of being on the outside.

Bourbon Roanne:

Bourbon Roanne:  Two cookies are in a pack.  Each cookie consists of a wafer (similar to an ice cream cone), with cream in the middle.

Green Tea Dorayaki

Green Tea Dorayaki These wheat cakes are filled with matcha red bean paste.  I enjoyed the wheat cakes, but I didn’t like the filling.

Shiawasedo Milk Cake:

Shiawasedo Milk Cake: These cakes are made with Hokkaido milk.  The cake is similar to yellow cake, and they were not as soft as I expected.


Final Thought:  The September Snakku box was a fun box to explore.  I always enjoy exploring new tastes and flavors.  Snakku’s presentation is top-notch and it really adds to the enjoyment of the box.  You can try Snakku with this link and use the code SUBMOM to save 10% on your first box..
