We have already begun preparing this month's bokksu and are excited to announce March's theme:
If you are wondering what types of snacks fall under "traditional", here's a sneak peek at one of the items in this month's bokksu:
Yokan is a thick, jellied dessert typically made with red bean paste, agar, and sugar. Though yokan was first introduced to Japan by China in the late 12th century, the modern form of yokan has its roots in the Edo period in the 19th century when agar and sugar became more available. Due to its rich taste and grainy texture, yokan is usually sliced into smaller servings and enjoyed with green tea.
