I love getting a new Traditional Japanese Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth wrapped around my box.
As always, Snakku has great packaging.
There was an information card and a little welcome note from Snakku.
This month, the snacks are from Tokyo.
Tokyo Banana: These little cakes remind me of Hello Kitty. These are a fluffy sponge cake that tastes like banana.
Tokyo Banana Pie: This is a flaky cookie with a banana taste. My 3 year old loves bananas, so these were a hit with him.
Mame Yakko These beans are made of edamame beans and rice. These remind me a bit of senbei in regards to taste, but are denser and crunchier.
Kinesha: These are folded butter biscuits. The one on the left is Maple (quite good with a slight aftertaste) and the one on the right is plain.
Kinesha Chocolate: This is the same folded biscuit as the ones above, but chocolate flavored. I really enjoyed this one.
Sweet Sake Soft Candy: These candies are made of rice sake. This is a soft candy that has the alcohol/saki flavor. This was a bit too different for all our tastes.
Seasonal Meiji Horn: These are little purple sandwich cookies that are made with purple jam, my kids loved these.
Nidoage Mochi: These are mochi crackers that are grilled and coated in soy sauce. These taste like a plain cracker and the soy flavor was not very noticeable.
Mukashi no Senbei: Last month, Snakku featured Senbei. They have a sweet toasted flavor that isn’t for everyone, but I really like them.
Double Anzutsumi: These are little cakes filled with red bean (left) and sweet potato (right). We didn’t try the red bean but the sweet potato was really sweet and tasty.
Final Thought: I really liked that this month there wasn’t one type of featured snack. I like getting box with a wide variety of snacks. Everyone in the family found a treat they enjoyed. You can try Snakku with this link and use the code SUBMOM to save 10% on your first box..
