Winter Limited Chocolate Pocky – Value $2.99 (buy 4 boxes for $11.48 or 8 boxes for $21.53 on Otakumode)

The first item in this month’s box is this limited Pocky! The Winter Chocolate Pocky seems to be double-dipped in chocolate so the sticks are thicker than standard Pocky and then dusted with cocoa powder. I suppose they were trying for a “heartier” Pocky? Whatever the case, these were very tasty. The chocolate is thicker and softer than normal chocolate dipped Pocky. The cocoa powder did add a bit of bitterness to the chocolate flavor, but it wasn’t overpowering.

Yoguretto Yogurlet Candy – Value $1.99 (buy 4 boxes for $7.64 or 8 boxes for $14.33 on Otakumode)

I was definitely apprehensive when I read the words “Yogurt Candy” but since these came from the same people who made the lemon candies in January’s Skoshbox, I was willing to give it a try. I ended up really enjoying them! They claim to freshen breath, and while they don’t have a mint flavor, it did leave my mouth cool and fresh. The flavor is sweet and tart, not necessarily yogurty but not far off. They were really interesting and I’ve been enjoying them!

Crunky Popjoy – Value $1.99 (buy 4 packets for $7.64 or 8 packets for $14.33 on Otakumode)

These are bite-sized chocolate candies that contain crispy rice puffs. Need I say more? They were amazing! The chocolate is smooth and melts in your mouth, while the rice adds a very satisfying crisp. Think Buncha Crunch, but add more chocolate. These were gone almost instantly!

Alfort Premium Biscuits – Value $2.99 (buy 4 boxes for $11.48 or 8 boxes for $21.53 on Otakumode)

These biscuits are essentially a cookie topped with a caramel matcha chocolate. They are big! Definitely not a bite-sized snack, and you get a good amount in the box. These treats weren’t really my cup of tea, but I didn’t try them with coffee or tea as some people have suggested. I just couldn’t get past the bitter and overpowering tea flavor.

Verdict: Skoshbox is always doing a great job of exposing me to new treats every month, and now I know I like tart yogurt mints. Who could have predicted that? Only 1 treat wasn’t a winner for me, but it was completely a personal flavor thing. I put the value here at $9.96 which is just shy of the $10 price tag, but the value in trying new things makes up for that. This is the first Skoshbox I’ve reviewed with only 4 items though, so it does feel like it is missing something.

What do you think of Skoshbox? What items did you like this month?
