Bokksu “Glamorous Tokyo” March 2018 Review

There is a welcome letter from the founder inside the box with a code for 15% off any order from their Global Bokksu Market.

Also included is a pamphlet describing all of the wonderful treats in store for you.

Koala’s March Strawberry box

Koala’s March Strawberry – Retail Value $2.00

These are almost too cute to eat! These little crunchy cookies are filled with a soft strawberry creme filling. I love the koala images printed on them. This is a really fun item and the cost per box is very reasonable.

Black Sesame Goma Senbei – Buy a 9-pack for $6.00

Senbei is a traditional Japanese rice cracker. It’s very crisp and crunchy and it definitely has a distinct toasted sesame flavor. I’d love to dip this in some miso soup or a ramen bowl.

Horn Milk Chocolate

Horn Milk Chocolate – Buy an 8-pack for $4.00

This mini cookie bar (it’s so cute and tiny) has Meiji chocolate sandwiched between two buttery biscuit layers. This little treat would be a delight dipped in coffee or hot cocoa.

ChickaLicious Chocolate And Banana Cobbler

This was a delightful treat. I wasn’t expecting this Bokksu-exclusive cobbler to be so moist and fresh tasting. I didn’t get a lot of banana flavor, but it was still good nonetheless.

ChickaLicious Apple Cobbler

ChickaLicious Apple Cobbler

Just like the chocolate and banana cobbler, this Bokksu-exclusive treat was very moist and chewy. These are really packaged well. This one was like eating a mini apple pie…so good!

Cafe Latte Stick

Cafe Latte Stick – Buy a 5-pack for $4.00 (found here for $2.00)

Described as a light latte with a rich taste, these instant coffee packs are great for on the go! Make a cold brew or hot brew, sit back and relax. I didn’t have a chance to make a cup, but I’m definitely going to be dipping some snacks into a cup of this over the weekend!

Maple Butter Cookie:

Maple Butter Cookie – Buy a 32-pack for $60.00

The first thing that I noticed with these cookies was the Americana themed packaging. Odd for a product out of Tokyo. These little cookies pack a wonderful buttery maple punch. I’m glad there are three of these in the box!

Premium Almond Rusk 

Premium Almond Rusk – Buy a 14-pack for $9.48

I really liked these as well. It’s a crunchy baguette slice topped with almonds and a delicious glaze. I need to buy some more of these!

Tokyo Chocolate Tea:

Tokyo Chocolate Tea – Buy a 14-pack for $28.00

These were decadently good. Melty milk chocolate covers a tea-infused cookie. These are ridiculously flavorful.

Vegetable Potato Sticks

Vegetable Potato Sticks – Retail Value $1.00 (Buy 5 bags for $3.00)

Described as “Japan’s favorite potato snack”, however not my favorite snack in the box. There’s definitely a strong, salty vegetable taste to them along with a really good crunch.

Mini Fried Rice Crackers:

Mini Fried Rice Crackers – Retail Value $1.00

These are definitely as described…sweet and savory. These fried rice crackers are coated in a sweet soy sauce. Definitely unusual and oddly good. I can see how these might be addictive.

Verdict: This was a fun box and I definitely had my fill of treats. The majority of the snacks were really unique and unlike anything I’ve had before. I think the Koala crackers were my favorite snack…if not just because they were so cute and fun. The ChickaLicious cobbler bars were an amazing treat and totally unexpected.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Sadly no, but sign up here to get the next upcoming box! You can also shop many of these treats in Bokksu’s shop!

Coupon – Use code ADDICTION to save $5 off your first box!

Value Breakdown: At $39.00 for this box, you’re paying approximately $3.55 per snack.
