Q: Does the guide come with nutritional information. Will give the ones that have gluten to others lolAsked by Brittany C., March 2020
We list out all the common allergens of each snack and if it's vegetarian or not, so for checking to see if there's gluten or not, you can simply look to see if "wheat" is listed as a common allergen. If it doesn't list it, then you're safe to enjoy that snack :)
Q: Is team's a regular part of this box? I'm looking for a box that has more variety and more tea and drinks. Tokyo treat was great but I would really rather have more teas than just candyAsked by Shyashton C., June 2019
We curate a tea pairing to complement that month's snack curation every single month :)
I got a sample box for Bokksu, and it was excellent. My housemate went through and MC'd as he and passed around each item. He says 4/5 stars because some of the packaging was hard to open. The rest of us can just say 5/5.
The snacks were all good, and there was a good deal of variety. It was surprising how much fit in the box, and there were two packs of most items, so there was plenty to go around and share with friends. It comes with a booklet that describes each item (including allergens and whether it's vegetarian). It's all incredibly well done, and a was huge success.
The only caveat is that if you're vegetarian or vegan, this probably isn't the box for you. As you'd expect, Japanese people use a lot of seafood in their snacks. For anyone else, I highly recommend it.
I got my first box this week, and I love it! I kind of wish I'd gotten the bigger box now that I've seen what's in it. The snacks are very tasty and having the booklet is very informative and helpful.
Overall, I am so pleased with my my second box. It was here before I thought it would be hear. Customer service on my 1st Box was super amazing. I love their attitudes. I am just reading on the area in Japan the box was based on. I know what everyone is getting for Christmas this year.
Arrived really fast! (to Netherlands). I love the curation of the products. The best part is the booklet that tells you a lot of information about each product and its origins. Bokksu feels like it has genuine care and consideration behind it. Can't wait for the next one!
I just received my first box. I ordered the tasting box just to try it. I love everything in the box. I don't really have any hobbies so this is something for me to look forward to every month. I just signed up for the three month larger size box. So, excited for the next one 🤩
I have received three months of subscription boxes from Bokksu and each one has been filled with an amazing selection of snacks paired with lovely teas! Every box has arrived in a timely manner, and Bokksu is one of the smoothest run subscription services I have come across. My family has enjoyed looking over each box and enjoying snacks that cannot be found where I live.
The founder, Danny, is always quick to reply to emails to answer any questions or address any concerns. He also lets subscribers know when boxes have been shipped so we know when we might expect their arrivals. The day after I subscribed, Danny contacted me to let me know they still had a few boxes of the current month available and let me choose if I wanted the current month or if I wanted my subscription to start on the upcoming month. It's really a pleasure to be a customer of a company that puts the desires of the customer first. It is something that is sadly lacking in most American businesses these days, and I am glad to have found a subscription that has an excellent customer service ideology!
Thank you Danny and all the team at Bokksu!
I got this for my 14-year-old son for his birthday and he loved it! Customer service was prompt and friendly. The box was received in a timely manner. We can't wait for next months box!
I can only wish to review the contents of those lovely boxes but so far, they have eluded me. Despite all the efforts of the bokksu team in overcoming the hurdles of a very unwilling postal service, I have yet to receive a single one. So my review can only focus on one thing : their customer service and overall communication. And here I can wholeheartedly give 5 stars. They are kind, they reply fast, they look to solve whatever problem may arise nd still manage to give every interaction a personal note. It only makes me sadder that I couldn't get a box to taste because if they chose the contents with as much thought (and feeling) as they showed me when it became apparent that the delivery path was corrupted...well they must be beyond amazing. Do try them out, I am sure you won't regret it.
I've subscribed to many Japanese snack/candy boxes, but out of all of them, Bokksu is my favorite. The products are picked with thoughtfulness, either following a specific theme, season, or just how they complement each other. You're also given a few of each so that you can indulge in your favorites. Each box also comes with a short description of each piece, and sometimes a bit of trivia which I like. And, quite to my surprise, they also include allergen info. (Very considerate of them). However what I like most about Bokksu is the uniqueness of their snacks and candy. They are well crafted, made with premium ingredients, and each has a wonderful flavor that I can't find in other kinds of subscription boxes. I really enjoy this box, and I hope others will try it out too.
Oh, I wish I could include pictures! I've tried a few different Japanese box subscriptions, now, and I can honestly say none of them have run as smoothly, arrived as quickly, or looked as truly lovely as this has. Bokksu may be my new favourite thing. Even my partner, who is perpetually unimpressed by everything, was eager to open it up and admitted he was excited by the contents. I can't recommend this one enough. It is fantastic and you absolutely get a great return on the cost.
