Snakku is a monthly subscription box that sends you a box of snacks from a different region in Japan. Each box is filled with 20-25 snacks that are wrapped in reusable washi furoshiki (a Japanese patterned cloth that is used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods).
The March Snakku box theme was Osaka the second largest city in Japan which is a large foodie city.
Snakku March 2018 box contained
- Osaka choco egg – bite sized cakes in the shape of an egg
- Tofu chocolate – bite sized chocolate & tofu snack
- Mocchiee banana – mochi cake filled with banana custard
- Nani waffle – 3 mini waffles – maple, sugar glaze and chocolate
- Okonomiyaki senbei – rice cracker flavored like okonomiyaki
- Kaminari okoshi – rice milled and ginger snack
- Japanese cider candy – cider hard candy
- Togarashi pepper crackers – hot pepper flavored crackers
- Blueberry cheesecake tart – soft mini tarts
- Umaibo – corn puff snack

Japanese cider candies, tofu chocolate and blueberry tarts
Togarashi pepper crackers & Mocchiee banana
Everything in this box was delicious and were all hard to find Japanese snacks that would have been impossible to find in Canada or US. My favorites were the tofu chocolate which sounded strange as it blends tofu, black sesame, soybean pastry and chocolate but it was delicious, the oknomiyaki sembei (no surprise here as I love okonomiyaki and sembei crackers), and the soft blueberry cheesecake tarts.
Snakku always provides high-quality Japanese snack boxes, and offer one of the best subscription boxes on the market. Not only does each box contain nearly 1lb of snack per month which is way more than the competition, but the snacks always seem to more expensive and high quality. I also appreciate that each Snakku box contains a sheet explaining each snack and list all ingredients which is useful for people with allergies or dietary restrictions.
