This month we celebrate fall in Japan. The autumn moon viewing tradition or Otsukimi is a much anticipated event that dates back to the Heian period. In September or October (depending on the lunar calendar), people offer seasonal treats to the moon. A celebration of thanks to the moon and appreciation for the harvest. Sound familiar? You will find apples and sweet potatoes but, alas, no turkey. Let us have a look at the snacks that give thanks to the harvest moon.

Bokksu Subscription Box Review – October 2017

Many new favorites were discovered this month. Another super offering from Bokksu. I truly appreciate the dedication and attention that goes into each snack selection. I really like the way that some snacks are takes on classics from other cultures like the German strudel or fruit cake from Europe and North America. But I think my favorite aspect of Bokksu is that they include tea in their boxes. It always makes a great combination with some of the cakes and cookies. This month's box is jam-packed with items. So many great flavours it is hard to pick a favorite. Did you have a clear winner this month?
