It’s summer time, which means it’s time for some fun in the sun, and some tropical-inspired Japanese snacks, too! You may not be able to experience summer in Japan for yourself, but trust us when we say, we’ve got the next best thing.
Here at Bokksu, we specialize in curating the best specially themed Japanese snack subscription boxes each month. With nearly two dozen snacks, a tea pairing, and a snack booklet to match, our Bokksu subscription box is guaranteed to be the bright spot of your month. We take inspiration from all different places for our boxes -- changes of seasons, holidays, Japanese prefectures, and more -- and this month is no different. We are proud to announce that the Bokksu subscription box theme for June 2021 is: Tropical Travels!
The Tropical Travels box will take your taste buds on the summer vacation of a lifetime. Picture this: you’re on the island of Okinawa, enjoying all the delicacies that the prefecture has to offer. You indulge in your first bite of Yuzu Monaka, while you take in the breeze at Manza Beach. You suddenly have a craving for some chinsuko, so you unwrap a Marui Chinsuko: Beni Imo and roam the streets of Kokusaidori Street, making sure to greet each street vendor you pass by. Then, you lean into your sweet tooth even further, and break out the Brown Sugar Caramel Macchiato Sandwich Cookie. You’re free to revel in the chocolatey goodness as you listen to the elephants trumpet in harmony at the Okinawa Zoo and Museum. And your trip has only just begun!
Along with Okinawa, the flavors of the Tropical Travels box are also meant to evoke the island of Kyushu. The fruity bite sized delights that are the Zeitaku na Gummy: Kumamoto Watermelon gummies will make you feel like you’re walking through the stunning Kawachi Wisteria Garden again for the very first time. The volcanic eruption of flavor that is the Curry Kamesen is sure to take you back to Japan’s most active volcanoes, Mount Aso and Sakurajima. And you can’t help but reminisce about your time spent at the Takachiho Gorge when opening up your Kabosu Nuts Sable Cookie.
In total, the Tropical Travels box comes with twenty-one Japanese snacks, two bags of Higa Granny’s Sanpin Cha Jasmine Tea, and a twenty page culture guide specifically made for June 2021. Other snacks that were not mentioned above include:
- Marui Chinsuko: Pineapple
- Okinawa Salted Shiquasa Fried Kakinotane
- Karu Choco Corn Puffs
- Shima Togarashi Rice Crackers and Peanuts
- Yuki no Yado: Kokuto Black Sugar Milk Rice Cracker
- Zawawa Chinsuko: Black Sesame and Kinako
