March's box is filled with snacks from the foodie capital of Japan: Osaka.
Takoyaki is one of the most iconic street foods of Japan. They are balls of savory dough wrapped around a piece of octopus, then topped with a delicious sauce.
Maison De Kukkia
Matcha chocolate sandwiched between wafer cookies
Crepe crackers that are delicately baked and then dipped in ginger emulsion. It’s then topped with real edible gold foils, which are made by hand in the snowy city of Kanazawa. We got these in last month's box.
Hand made small pancake-like cakes wrapped around a sweet red-bean filling. This was good and I didn't mind the bean filling.
Chocolate & Vanilla Rusks
Twice baked Japanese style baguettes topped with either a chocolate or vanilla glaze. I enjoyed the chocolate ones.
A perfect mix of lightly salted senbei glazed with sweet cream and molasses from Hokkaido.
Delicately baked biscuits sandwiches filled with vanilla cream.
Osaka Molasses Kinako Mochi
This unique mochi is covered in kinako (roasted soybean flour) and filled with baked molasses. It's handmade by a local snack vendor in Osaka.
Osaka Choco Egg
Bite sized cakes in the shape of an egg, covered with white chocolate. These are super popular in Osaka.
Mayonnaise is widely used in a lot of food in Osaka. Japanese mayo is a bit different from your typical mayo in a few ways. It's made from only the egg yolk, whereas regular mayo uses the whole egg. Japanese mayo also uses rice vinegar compared to distilled vinegar for regular mayo. This makes Japanese mayo lighter, airier, and creamier. These senbei are made using mayo form Osaka.
Caramel Pudding Cake
These bite-sized cakes won the prestigious Monde Gold Award in 2014. They are made by a small family owned snack store which was established in 1924. These were my favorite snack in the box!
Sweet red bean candy with a slightly salty center filling.
Two types of bite-sized vegetable rice crackers. My son was drawn to the bright coloured packaging and he really liked them!
This month's Snakku had many interesting snacks and I really enjoyed some of the cake ones. They were moist, fresh, and had good flavour. It's near impossible to put a value on the box, but considering these snacks are exclusive and the quantity you get, I'd estimate the value to be very good. Anyone who's into Asian snacks, specifically from Japan will enjoy Snakku.
