Featured Snacks

Usagi Cream Daifuku

Usagi Cream Daifuku These are made to look like little snow rabbits.  They have the consistency of a dumpling, but it is sweet and filled with matcha green tea.  These were sweet and very good.


Yukizuri These are made to look like snow-covered tree branches.  They have flaky pastry layers with a thin amount of plum jelly in the middle.  The whole treat is covered in thick white icing.  These are so sweet and very tasty.

Tsuyahume-iri Senbei

Tsuyahume-iri Senbei These rice crackers have toasted rice in the middle and are made to look like snowflakes.  These were very sweet and crunchy.

Amaebi Age Mochi

Amaebi Age Mochi  These are a puffy rice cracker that is made with shrimp (the pink specks).  These were good, but I don’t love the fishy smell.
-41C Below Freezing-41C Below Freezing These are crushed up almonds on one side and have white chocolate on the other side.

Popular Snacks


Ottoto: These are a favorite with my kids.  They are shaped like animals and veggies and are a hollow salty cracker.  They are also seasoned with a veggie taste.  My 6 year old tasted these first and loved them.  My 3 year old found them later and finished off the bag.

Hokkaido Manju

Hokkaido Manju This is a soft bread-like dessert filled with red bean paste.  This was sweeter than I thought and very rich in flavor.

Bourbon Chocoliere

Bourbon Chocoliere There are two cookies in each package.  The bottom is a cookie and the top is milk chocolate, so good.


Ramune Soda Candy: My 6 year old joined me in my video so he could try these.  These hard candies were sent in three flavors: fizzy, chilly and fruity.  The red package is fruity, light blue is fizzy and dark blue is chilly.  The fizzy was my favorite but L and I loved all of them.

Mini Rice Crackers

Mini Rice Crackers These are rice cracker shaped star puffs with a sweet coating.  These are both salty and a bit sweet.Salty Senbei

Salty Senbei These taste like the senbei I am most familiar with.  These are puffy and very salty.


Final Thought: This box was one of my favorites so far.  I really love the Tsuyahime-ir Senbei and teh -41C Below Freezing the most.  You can try Snakku with this link and use the code SUBMOM to save 10% on your first box..

    My daughter would love to get these little boxes. My wife gives her little Japanese candy all of the time and she loves it. I like the Snakku snack pack. I’m going to see if I can subscribe. Thanks for the post!
