Citrus theme was another hit! Keep 'em coming!”

I LOVE Bokksu; my husband and I look forward to it every month. It is an incredible joy to sit down, read about the different snacks, and have a tea party as we try them and give our opinions on our likes and dislikes. It is an incredible experience I've enjoyed greatly!

I love the balance of savory and sweet. I love trying new snacks whether or not I like them. The citrus theme was very fun in how it was represented across the spectrum of flavors.


Thanks for fabulously fruity July everyone! Can't wait to hear what you all think about our next box, so keep participating in our monthly surveys. You are what make Bokksu great, and we want to keep getting better with your help.

So what do you think? Do you agree with our Member-voted most popular snack? Or do you think another snack deserves the title? Comment below and let us know!
