But What Did Our Members *Really* Think?

This month’s snacks surprised me as I usually don’t like flower flavored snacks but I enjoyed basically all the snacks in April’s box.

I was pleased with the extremely fast delivery time of the international shipping, and the sakura theme is my favorite, so I enjoyed almost every item.

I've tried a few other boxes that have curated Japanese snacks. Bokksu is by far the best and really doesn't cheap out. We really enjoy it and I know others would too.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in our April Survey! Your feedback tells us how to improve each month so every box is better than the last.
