Bokksu January 2017 Spoilers + Coupon!
Bokksu‘s January 2017 theme is Maru
Maru means “circle” in Japanese and is associated with goodness in Japan. Correct answers on tests are marked with a maru (⭕️) while incorrect answers are marked with a batsu (❌). Maru is also the basis for Enso, the traditional Zen Buddhist art on the cover that symbolizes enlightenment, strength, and elegance. Enso can be drawn open or closed and convey different meanings based on its form. Incomplete Enso are associated with wabi-sabi (the beauty of imperfection) while complete Enso represent perfection. This month, we’ve curated a delicious assortment of maru snacks to help you find enlightenment and beauty in the new year.
They’ve also revealed two of the items for January:
Baumkuchen is a German roll cake that was first introduced to Japan in the early 20th century and is now an incredibly popular dessert all over Japan. Baumkuchen literally means “tree cake” in German and gets its namesake from the characteristic rings that resemble tree rings. We’ve included two flavors: Plain and Chocolate.
Ka No Michi
Ka No Michi is a Japanese reimagining of a cream cookie sandwich. It is first filled with a flavored cream and then baked to perfection in a beautiful wave pattern. Each bite infuses your mouth with a delicious balance of crispy butter cookie and lightly sweet cream. We’ve included three flavors: Vanilla, Matcha, and Cocoa.
