So…before I start this review, I ate everything before I could take pictures of them because I was so excited and hungry. =/ If you want to see what everything looks like check out the video. Hence…the wrappers. They were all so delicious, I couldn’t help myself. T_T
This is the Aero Green Tea flavor chocolate (there was also a strawberry flavored one in the box, too). It is made by Nestle and basically imagine a chocolate bar and inject it with a bunch of bubbles. It feels very light and airy when you take a bite from it. When you eat one you satisfy your sweet tooth without feel like you’ve committed a food sin.
This cracker biscuit is the shiz. Literally. It’s the most delectable tasting, slightly sweet tasting crunch explosion your mouth has been waiting for. I love these things.
This cracker tastes sort of like the cheese you get from those Kraft cheese dip sticks, but better tasting cheese and a more awesome rice cracker.
This one was interesting…it supposedly had a cod roe flavor because that’s what it’s marketed as. As far as taste goes, it tastes like those shrimp cracker sticks but imagine it more puffy…like a Cheetoh puff. So a seafood-ish tasting Cheetoh puff.
This is the perfect Asian tea biscuit. The British have tea and biscuits, well Asians have tea and this biscuit. It’s slightly sweet with a hint of chocolate, perfect for afternoon tea.
If you think Jolly Ranchers are too sweet, then this is your hard candy. It has a very light sweet cream taste and it’s perfect to just suck on…
Pocky is amazing. ‘Nuff said. This strawberry Pocky is amazing. If you haven’t tried Pocky, shame on you. Go to your nearest Asian store and pick up a pack. They are thing cracker sticks dipped in amaze-balls.
I got the strawberry one and it’s like a cream-filled wafer stick. Very wafer-y and you can easily eat an entire tin of these in one sitting.
I love Kit Kat, it’s one of my favorite candy bars. Sadly, you only have milk chocolate and dark chocolate here in the U.S. Although in Japan you have like….ALL the flavors. This green tea flavored one was fantastic. It tastes like matcha green tea coated in a lighter, airier wafer than a U.S. Kit Kat. Delicious!
Retail Value: approximately $15.00

Overall: Skoshbox is an amazing box full of food goodies that will bring your taste buds on an adventure. It’s very well put together with a range of chocolate to crunchy.

Go for this box. You won’t regret it.
