If you can’t make it to Japan just yet, no worries! Japanese snack boxes are a great way to grab some Japanese treats without ever leaving home! TokyoTreat has an awesome monthly selection of Japan-Exclusive and seasonal snacks. But there are also plenty of other snack boxes to try too.
One of the most popular options is Bokksu, another monthly Japanese snack box. But what is the difference between TokyoTreat and Bokksu? Let’s take a look further into what TokyoTreat and Bokksu offer.
TokyoTreat and Bokksu both offer Japanese candy and snacks – but what exactly is the difference? TokyoTreat focuses more on Japanese snacks and treats rooted in Japanese modern pop culture and unique, limited edition flavors. Bokksu offers a snack experience that blends some traditional flavors while mixing in some popular, mass-produced snacks.
While both offer uniquely Japanese flavors and Japan-exclusive snacks, TokyoTreat’s specialty is the latest and coolest Japanese snacks! Japanese anime fans and people who want a taste of modern Japan will find what they’re looking for in TokyoTreat! From the newest and coolest Japanese KitKat flavors to limited edition Japanese soda and ramune.
