Snakku is a Japanese snack subscription box that sends a mix of hand-picked, authentic snacks you can only find in Japan as well as more familiar selections. Subscriptions help sustain local Japanese snack shops, some of which have been around for hundreds of years. Plus, it’s easy to pause, skip, or cancel.

November’s box features two important ingredients: matcha green tea and azuki bean paste.

Matcha Azuki Cake Roll

The info card lists the Tea Ogura Manju, but I actually received the Matcha Azuki Cake Roll that was also included in the regular Snakku box.

This is a soft cake made from hand-picked tea leaves and chunky Azuki beans. The sweet, moist cake is perfection. I am in love with this one.

Azuki Sandwich KitKat

The flavor of this KitKat is based off Azuki toast, which is toast topped with bean paste and eaten as a sandwich. The flavor is… interesting. My mind can’t comprehend the fact that KitKat can taste like red bean paste. It’s not one of my favorite KitKat flavors but it sure is a fun tasting experience!

Matcha Roll Crepe

These are all natural, organic walnut roll cookies filled with light matcha cream. The matcha cream is mildly sweet (compared to the other snacks in the box) and tastes delicious with warm tea.

Yokan

Yokan is a traditional Japanese snack made of thick, jellied red bean paste. This snack should be chilled before eating for maximum deliciousness. The sweetness compares to the red bean paste in the Matcha Azuki Cake Roll. It also tastes great paired with green tea.

Fukkura Okoge

This is a crispy rice grain senbei glazed lightly with soy sauce and baked in a clay kiln. The soy sauce glaze really comes through in each bite.

Calbee Sapporo Potato

These are crispy potato sticks from Sapporo. They have a tasty umami flavor that’s similar to shrimp crackers. Each crunchy bite is so satisfying! This one is ridiculously addicting.

Blueberry Candy

These are blueberry flavored hard candies. They are apparently made with real blueberries and are high in beta carotene.

Verdict: I really enjoyed the variety of snacks featured in this Snakku Tasting Box. My favorite is definitely the Matcha Azuki Cake Roll, but everything else was wonderful as well. There were 10 snacks total, so the cost breakdown is $1.58 per snack. I think the cost is a little high considering 3 of the 10 snacks are hard candies. Overall, I love the snack curation, but the price would be better if they added a couple more items to the box.
