March '17 Bokksu: Snacks Over Flowers 花より団子
March is the most highly anticipated month of the year due to the blooming sakura and delicious Spring foods. The Japanese idiom Hana Yori Dango (花より団子) roughly translates to “food is better than flowers” and advises one to prefer substantial items such as food over decorative items such as flowers. We absolutely agree with this old idiom, which is why we’ve curated a blossoming assortment of sakura, strawberry, and plum snacks to help you celebrate the upcoming Spring renewal!
What's this box like?
"I have to say, I really and truly am loving my Bokksu boxes. They are so much fun to unbox. I love the process from beginning to end. And this is coming from someone who typically doesn’t like Japanese treats. I think they have successfully turned me into a Japanese treat addict."

"This was a really fun box! I loved the pink and the focus on sakura since it's such a big part of Spring in Japan. Also, I'm not gonna lie, those white chocolate soaked freeze dried strawberries were so good I'm going to try to make my own...."

"Tried my very first #Bokksu today, and was extremely happy! For the fan of Japanese culture and tea, this monthly box was everything I wanted. March's theme was Sakura which hey! We're almost at full bloom in Washington this week!"
