Skoshbox is going green and now posts info on the snacks on their site rather than sending detailed booklets as they did before.
They also sent this advert encouraging subscribers to post pics of their boxes with #skoshbox hashtag for a chance to win a $10 shop credit! Neat!
Chisana Bakauke, Nori flavor (Closest thing online I could find was the Sweet Sesame flavor on Amazon for $12.99
At first glance, I thought these looked like some sort of potato wedge flavored snack because of the illustration on the bag.
It could be sleep deprivation, but I find this illustration to be HILARIOUS! Attack of the Angry Potato Wedges!
Alas, I wised up and realized these are crispy rice crackers. They have a salty quality to them due to the Nori. All in all, these were yummy.
Scone Sour Cream Onion Flavor — Value $1.15
I was not sure how to feel about the bowl of gloppy mayo pictured on the bag, but these were such a treat! This snack was by far my favorite of the bunch.
These are flavored with Hoikkado sour cream and taste like sour cream and onion Cheetos if they were a thing. These are so insanely good! Gimme, gimme, gimme!
Gogo No Koucha Lemon Tea Cookie — Value $2.95
They aren’t lying about the lemon tea flavor, especially the tea. They are kind of like an Arnold Palmer in the form of a cookie.
These are very unique cookies, that is for sure!
Happy Nikukyu Cat Gummy in Grape — Value $2.39
Do you remember Cheeto paws? Even though these are fruit gummy snacks, I couldn’t help but think of them! These are very cutesy and as soon as I showed my little six-year-old cousin the bag she ran off with them. I can’t blame her!
These definitely have a grape flavor. The texture is pretty soft too unlike some other gummies that practically rip out all your teeth. Would nom on these again!
Hi-Chew Seasonal Okayama White Peach — (buy a set of 10 in similar flavor for $14.90)
I am really immature and laughed for two minutes because that peach illustration looks like a butt! Have mercy on my infantile self, please.
Packaging aside, I was not keen on the taste of this candy. It was too flowery for my taste. Also, the texture was this weird mix between a Starburst candy and gum. In the words of Mr. Horse from Ren and Stimpy, “No, Sir. I don’t like it!”
Mochitto Purin — Value $2.00
These little balls look like egg yolks, so I was intrigued and also nervous. The texture is strange, like a gummy filled with custard, but the taste is excellent!
I love these pudding filled gummy balls of deliciousness! I don’t eat a lot of sugary treats these days, but I really enjoyed these! Would definitely snack on these again!
Verdict: All of the snacks in this box were ones I have never had before. All in all, there were definitely some unique flavor profiles and textures in these selections. The peach candy was not my favorite, but the sour cream and onion puffs and pudding filled gummies made up for that alone! A lot of the six featured items were hard to find in singular packs let alone at all online, so getting them all sent out in one lovely subscription box for $12 + free shipping is convenient and makes Skoshbox such a great value!
