Bokksu: Citrus Refresh – July 2018 Review

Bokksu: Citrus Refresh – July 2018 Review + Giveaway

Many times throughout the day I see an image, hear a noise or smell something that makes me want to travel and see the world. I want to travel and try the local treats and snack of the the area. When I received the July Bokksu Box with the treats from various regions and areas in Japan, I was able to fulfill part of my wish from home.

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Reviv3. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

The July 2018 Bokksu Box theme was Citrus Refresh and included the following treats:

Orange Stick Cake – From Osaka Japan this is the Japanese Pound Cake that was light and fluffy, and includes real orange slices on the top.

Rich Orange Biscuits – From Tokyo Japan this is similar to a oreo, but amplified with two chocolate wafers and a center of orange creme.

Low Carb Lemon Cake – From Asaka Japan this is low carb but full on flavor. The best way to describe this is that it is a lemon cake, but airy.

Handmade Yuzu Candy – Made in Kyoto this is a citrus that is sweet and tart, making this a flavorful candy.

Kaibukiage Rice Crackers – Little fried rice crackers from Tokyo these are coated with soy saice and a native citrus from to Okinawa Japan. These are only available in Okinawa and sourced special for Bokksu Box.

Lemon Rusk – Product of Tokyo Japan this is a twice baked baguette that was a mix of citrusy and sweet. It reminded me of multi layered cookies, and these would be good with fruit on top.

Ofu Snijes Crackers & Peanuts – Lemon Salt Flavor – Made in Kyoto, these are a mix of smoked crakcers and peanuts that are salty and sweet with a zesty tang to them.

Olive Oil Senbai Yuzu Pepper – Coming from Tokyo, these are spicy upon first bite, these will  have you wishing you had more.

Satsumarche Yuzu Green Tea – Coming from the Kagoshima Prefecture this is a smootha nd fruity green tea.

Hyugantsu Jelly – This comes from the Aichi Prefecture and is a sweet pod of tangy jelly. The flavor comes from the citrus native fruit, and is a cross between a lemon and pomelo.

Each snack was flavorful, as described and delicious, and allowed me snacks from Japan without leaving the house. If you want a selection of treats each month from Japan, get the subscription to Bokksu Box.

    “What is your favorite international snack?” Hmm…I think I would love to have crates of scotch eggs and mincemeat pies delivered to me!

  2. Cheryl Chervitz

    I don’t have any favorites. I do like a lot of the brands from Germany that Aldi’s carries.

  3. Peggy Nunn

    I like Haribo Gummy candies. We had them in Germany before they were sold in the USA.

  4. Sandy Klocinski

    My favorite international snack is Tyrkisk peber. These are among my favorites of salty little gems that light up the taste buds. Like nothing else I’ve ever had, that’s for sure. I can’t finish the whole candy at once, so it helps to slow down compulsive snacking on sugar.

  5. Christy DuBois

    When I was little I had a friend that lived down the road and his mother was German. She still had family in Germany and she would get her family to ship her ingredients that she couldn’t buy here to make different German candy. I do not even remember the name of it but it was so good. It was unlike anything I’ve ever eaten before. Just so good.

    My favorite international snack is Danish Butter Cookies! They are simple yet absolutely delicious and so addicting.

  7. ellen beck

    Halva black licorice is very good if you are a black licorice fan. It is Finnish but seen also eaten in Denmark.

  8. elizabeth miller

    I would have to say my favorite internationsl snack would be some sort of gummies.

  9. Heather Watt

    I would say roasted chicken walkers brand chips from the UK or Guava macadamia nut cookies from Hawaii.
