September's box features snacks with unique Japanese ingredients Yuzu, a popular citrus fruit and Kinako, a type of roasted soybean flour.
Coconut Sable Cookies - Baked butter cookies topped with a sweet coconut glaze.
Gift of Yuzu - The outer mochi layer is made with locally produced premium Shikoku rice. the inside is filled with a mixture of yuzu purée from the Ehime prefecture and mildly sweet azuki bean paste. I'm not sure what the other snack is because it wasn't listed on the info card. I think it's some type of rusk snack.
Kaki No Tane - The name of this snack literally means persimmon seeds, because it looks just like them. But, it's actually small crescent-shaped senbei rice crackers combined with peanuts.
Hokkaido Match Milk Candy - Candy made with cream and premium matcha from the Aichi prefecture of Japan.
Black Goma Senbei - Black rice crackers made with black roasted sesame seeds, soy sauce, and miso.
Iwashiko - Sun-dried baby sardines caught off the coast in the sea of Japan. I can't even look at these, let alone eat them!
Ankororin - This baked manju is stuffed with a mixture of white miso and yuzu paste. The savoriness of the miso combined with the sweet tartness of the yuzu create a unique flavour.
Kinako Bo - This old-fashioned snack became popular over 50 years ago and was the go-to snack for many Japanese children back then. It's made by hand-kneading finely grained kinako, honey, and flour.
Kinako Rusk - Rusks made from crispy twice-baked baguette slices form a mom-and-pop bakery in Hiroshima and topped with Kinako powder.
Chaya No Mochi - Once upon a time, when people traveled by foot across Japan and came upon a teahouse, they would be served this Kinako covered rice cake.
It's impossible to put a total value on this box, but since these snacks aren't readily available here and if you're into these type of Japanese snacks, then I'm sure you can see the value here.
