October's box features snacks from the northern most island of Japan: Hokkaido.
By far, the most popular cookie from Hokkaido. Shiroi Koibito translates to "White Lover" and it's a simple yet delicious cookie which has white chocolate sandwiched between crispy butter biscuits. Why the name "White Lover"? The story goes that while the snack founder was coming home from a day of skiing, it started to snow and he casually remarked, "it's snowing white lovers." The name has stuck ever since. The cookies have a light delicate texture but don’t crumble easily. They are perfectly golden and sandwiched with just the right amount of white chocolate.
Puccho Cola Candy
Soft cola flavoured candy which fizzles in your mouth.
Yakitoukibi is a snack that you can only get from the famous Sapporo Ohdori Park. It's made from locally grown rice and sweet corn. The grilled corn and rice crackers are glazed lightly with soy sauce, giving it an amazing sweet and salty flavour all in one snack.
Sapporo Curry Senbei
Have you ever tried Japanese curry? It's very different from Indian curry, but just as tasty and very popular. This curry rice cracker is made in collaboration with a famous curry restaurant in Sapporo, Hokkaido. All of the ingredients and spices are locally sourced and it's full of umami!
Delicate butter cookie cigar popularized in 1972.
Kink no Yama
Popular and delicious cute chocolate topped crispy mushroom cookies.
Northern Sable Egg Biscuit
Mellow grilled cookies made with free range eggs from northern Japan.
Grilled rice crackers glazed with sugar soy sauce.
I think my box was missing one of the snacks listed on the info card, but it was still a full box with lots of interesting snacks. I'm not sure of the value since most, if not all the snacks aren't available here, but if you love trying Japanese snacks then this could be a box for you. I think Snakku does a great job with presentation and themes, but I do wish the price was a bit lower. However, if you're a big fan of these type of snacks, then the value might be there for you.
