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.
This box is such a treat! I really enjoy reading information about the different products included in the box. I've eaten several of the items and have not been disappointed! The treats are yummy and make me want to visit Japan!
I love the curation in the box! I especially love the meanings behind each and every snack. This box was super fun to try with my boyfriend and taste everything and make a list of the things we really loved. If you are at all interested in the food culture in Japan, (including the cultivation of certain ingredients found in these snacks), this box is for you! Super high quality and incredible. I highly recommend it. (Side note I ordered the tasting box and it was still super packed with snacks!)
I ordered my first three boxes right when the whole pandemic thing hit the fan, so I didn't get my boxes for a long time (not Bokku's fault of course) so my shipping score reflects that. There was an issue where my April box never got shipped out so they sent me two May boxes instead, I appreciate them replacing the April box and their customer support was very good.
As for the box itself, I have only received the two May boxes as of writing this review (waiting on June), but I am very happy with the contents of that box. Also the physical box is so cute and perfect for storing my art supplies, so a bonus. I'll be resubscribing in a few months when the shipping is less wonky.
Love this so much! The selections are awesome, I think I liked EVERYTHING in my box. Great curation!!
Highly recommend. Beautifully arranged boxes complete with a variety of different tasty snacks each month. Although each month has a theme, the flavors are quite varied. The description pamphlet explains what each food is and the region it comes from.
Excellent! Fast delivery, cool themed boxes of high quality.
You have to try this box!!! I have subscribed to SEVERAL boxes over the past 5 years and just received my first box from Bokksu. It is ABSOLUTELY wonderful! I was so impressed with everything, packaging, curation, quality and variety. My Son and I had so much fun trying the snacks, everything comes with a detailed description and reading about the items was so much fun! I will be subscribing to this box as long as it's around. Out of at least a 100 different subscriptions I have tried this is definitely in the top 2! I will be looking forward to my box every month and so glad I came across this subscription. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
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!
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.
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 🤩
