SNAKKU is back with another subscription box filled with amazing Japanese treats! The June shipment is themed around Kamakura, a small coastal town less than an hour south of Tokyo. The city is known for its huge bronze statues of Buddha. This month’s box came wrapped in a beautiful cloth with the contents carefully wrapped inside. Let’s check out the featured snacks.
Believe it or not, the snack store Teshimaya has been making these pretty bird-shaped cookies since 1868. The cookies have a light buttery flavor and great crunch. These large, individually-wrapped biscuits pair well with a cup of coffee and tea in the morning. Yum!
Apple Honey Pie and Kamakura Hydrangea Cookie
The Apple Honey Pie Cookies is a delicate pastry cookie that’s made with local Japanese apples and honey from the Ishii beekeeping garden. The Kamakura Hydrangea Cookie is a super yummy layered wafer cookie that feature a light, delicious hydrangea essence.
Wasabi Snowpea Crisps and Fukkura Okoge
Snowpea Crisps are one of my favorite snacks! They’re naturally baked crisps infused with snow peas and traditional Japanese dashi flavors. There’s also a hint of spicy wasabi. The Fukkura Okoge is made from rice grain baked in a clay kiln. It’s also lightly glazed with soy sauce has a great taste.
Bakauke Aonori and Matcha Azuki Cookie
The Bakauke Aonori are rice crackers that are covered in blue seaweed flakes. The crackers have a simple flavor and big crunch. The Matcha Azuki Cookie is so yummy! The buttery cookies have an amazing green tea taste and they’re filled with Hokkaido red bean cream.
Bourbon Baum Rolls and Flower’s Kiss Candy
I love these Bourbon Baum Rolls! These soft rolled pastries are glazed with vanilla and they make a great snack. The Flower’s Kiss Candy are hard candies that are made with flower essence. These sweet treats are flavored with creamy, apricot-plum.
SNAKKU strikes gold once again! This subscription box is one of the best ways to discover totally unique treats directly from Japan. The June shipment featured a yummy variety of Japanese sweets and snacks. My favorite product from this month’s collection is the Matcha Azuki Cookie. Matcha green tea and sweet red beans are two of my favorite flavors. I can’t wait to see what SNAKKU delivers next!
